As news of Keeping Up With The Kardashians coming to an end dominates headlines, there was one member of the family blissfully unaware of the devastating blow coming her way.
Caitlyn Jenner has revealed all in a very revealing interview…
It seems reality TV’s “first family” is finally calling it quits.
And it certainly isn’t what we were expecting.
This is brutal.
They’ve all starred in one of the most successful realities shows of all time and each of the sisters has a massive influence on social media.
Sure, they’ve always had an element of wealth and fame – but back when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, the sisters certainly weren’t the biggest Hollywood success story.
And more and more, the family are being respected as major players, particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.
And let’s be honest, they have the lavish life to show for it – inviting viewers to watch every scandal, drama, and luxury holiday unfold on screen.
The Kardashian clan can’t seem to avoid controversy at every turn.
Skeptics might even suspect they actually court it.
One classic reason?
The family seems to have a pretty relaxed stance on the rather serious issue of cultural appropriation.
Many of Kim’s photoshoots have certainly caused a stir in the past.
Many like to point at youngest sister, Kylie as a really poor example for young girls to look up to, thanks to her propensity for surgery and money-grabbing ways.
They’ve all been under fire for their shilling of sketchy diet products…
And the fact that they all have so much money that they enjoy flaunting regularly consistently lands them in hot water.
The Kardashians continue to be one of the most famous, and the most loved, families in the world.
Season 18 of KUWTK dropped recently…
And fans knew what to expect from the firey previews that have been teased over the last month.
And that was Kim and Kourtney’s major bust-up.
Remember when Khloe and Kourtney wanted to sue Kim for creating a perfume on her own?
Or this iconic moment all the way back from season 1?
This is still very much ingrained in our memory.
Involving none other than Kim and Kourtney.
So we aren’t entirely surprised that the pair have had yet another disagreement.
As things begin to get heated, Kim throws a punch at her sister.
She broke her silence on the brawl between her and Kim after fans went online calling it “cringeworthy.”
The tweet, by Rob, nicknamed Kourtney the ‘nail digger’, and it seems Kourtney quite liked the way it sounded, so she adopted it as her own.
And it seems that this was enough to make Kourtney finally snap.
Reports came in that Kourtney had quit Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
After continuous arguments with Kim, she decided enough was enough and it was time to remove herself from the toxicity of the reality show.
On one of her posts, a fan commented, “Kourtney just needs to quit the damn show! I’m over her not wanting to film,” to which Kourtney replied swiftly with, “I did. Bye.”
Kourtney was heard saying, “I don’t like being a celebrity… I’m taking a break from the show. Now I can focus on me and plan my time of being a mum.”
She then told the camera, “I want to be fulfilled and happy – life is too short.”
Kim Kardashian has announced KUWTK will air its final season in 2021.
“After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”
The seventy-year-old said on Thursday, that the girls didn’t even tell her about the decision beforehand.
Caitlyn found out like everybody else, by watching the news.
Caitlyn revealed on Australia’s The Morning Show: “I heard it on the news!”
Although she didn’t seem too bitter about the situation, as she went on to praise Kris Jenner and their family for the dedication and effort they put into the show over the years.
“The girls and Kris have done just an amazing job with the show and keeping it going for this long. But everybody is in a different place now and I think it’s time to move on. But what a run.”
“I wasn’t surprised but I just am so proud of the kids for doing such a great job over the years… I don’t know the inner workings of all the family, but I know all of the kids have moved on into their own areas,” she said.
Since the Keeping Up with the Kardashians debut in 2007, Caitlyn made a regular appearance.
Until 2015 when she divorced from Kris Jenner and underwent a gender transition.
KUWTK has truly been an iconic element of television for so many years.
It will be sorely missed. To relive the most iconic KUWTK moments from the past fourteen years, read on. Happy scrolling!
