“The Kardashians’s show is tanking in ratings and Kris is desperate for storylines,” a source close to the family claims.
And that’s not all the drama that’s supposedly going on behind the scenes. Apparently, the other Kardashian romances aren’t doing it for viewers, so the only option is to stir up something between Khloe and Lamar if KUWTK wants to see another season.
“Kanye West is urging Kim Kardashian to leave the show and her primary concern is making him happy,” the source adds. “[Kourtney and Scott] are a boring couple who aren’t very enticing to viewers. Khloe is all Kris has left.”
While the ratings aren’t as stellar as they were at the series’s peak — we’re talking 3.9 million viewers an episode back in Season 7, according to Yahoo — we doubt our favorite reality fam is going anywhere. The show continues to be a solid moneymaker for E!.
Love or hate the Kardashians, we’re completely fascinated by them. Are they immune to ratings stunts? Absolutely not. Do we think Kris is really on a mission to have her daughter reunite with her ex-husband purely for the sake of the show? No way.
