Did Scott Disick Replace Rob Kardashian on ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians’?

Over the years, the Kardashian family hasn’t been afraid to showcase their personal lives on camera.

Since landing their hit E! series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, this famous family enjoys everything about life in the spotlight and have fully embraced this lifestyle.

However, one family who isn’t too keen on being in the public eye is Rob Kardashian. The former reality star has been taking a break from fame for the last few years and hasn’t shown any interest in appearing on his family’s show again.

Although the Kardashian family has gotten comfortable living in the public eye, Rob Kardashian has yet to embrace that lifestyle.

The former reality star has been staying under the radar these past few years and hasn’t shown any interest in returning to the spotlight.

While he has made rare appearances on his family’s social media accounts, the reality star hasn’t appeared on KUWTK in what feels like forever.

The last time many of us can recall seeing him on KUWTK was back in 2017 soon after he breaking up with Blac Chyna.

Before that extremely rare appearance, Kardashian went on to star in his own spin-off show, Rob and Chyna, with his now ex-fiancé.

Although he was comfortable staying out of the public eye, Kardashian agreed to star on the spin-off series as it chronicled his weight loss journey as well as his and Chyna’s preparations to welcome their first child.

Sadly, after just one season, Rob & Chyna was canceled due to their impending breakup and Kardashian went back to his reclusive lifestyle.

Did Disick replace Kardashian on KUWTK

Seeing as though Kardashian’s shocking weight-gain was one of the main reasons why he decided to take a step back from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, it seems as though the shows producers didn’t have a problem using Scott Disick to fill in that male void.

When KUWTK first premiere in 2007, Disick was only known as Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend who made appearances on the show every now and again.

After a few years, Disick went on to become an eminent part of the show and many feel as though he brings some much-needed comedic relief to the series.

Seeing as though Disick has become more involved on the show in recent years, we can’t help but question if producers gave him more air time once Kardashian took a step back from the spotlight?

While you might not consider this to be true, let’s explain why we think so.

In 2014, Kardashian decided to take a break from the spotlight after being spotted having gained a substantial amount of weight.

Around this time, Disick’s relationship with the Poosh founder was on the rocks and many people were extremely invested in how their romance was going to play out.

Once Kardashian started living his life under the radar, having Disick take over the former reality star’s screen time was the perfect way to give fans more of The Lord.

Since then, Disick has appeared in practically every episode and many of us have yet to complain.

As for Kardashian, there is a good chance he will make his grand return to the series in the upcoming seasons.

According to an interview Kris Jenner gave Us Weekly back in August 2018, she revealed, “[Rob is] working on his health and learning more and more about what it’s like to live with kind of the leftovers of the diabetes that he struggles with from time to time, and working on his, you know, just your nutrition and your health,”

She also shared that he might make an appearance in Season 16 but seeing as though that has already passed, we’re hoping Kardashian makes his comeback to reality TV sooner rather than later.
