‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’: Were These Scenes Totally Scripted?
We have made it through 15 seasons of the cult phenomenon Keeping up with the Kardashians. We have watched every meltdown over earrings, every breakup, every
Seriously, with the Kardashians, there is always some drama rivaling that of Grey’s Anatomy going on. And while that makes great television, the idea that all of it happens naturally is completely insane. No one’s life is
What do the Kardashians say about their show being scripted?
The Kardashians have never admitted to their show being scripted and why would they? Part of the appeal of the show is its voyeuristic aspect. People love to be able to get a glimpse behind the headlines and into the famous sisters’ lives. So if they were to admit that it was all made up and rehearsed, they would probably lose a lot of viewers.
Though the sisters themselves have never admitted to anything, there are a few scenes that have been reportedly scripted, re-shot, or edited.
Which scenes of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ were edited?
Anyone who has watched the show for some time remembers the short stint of time where Kim was married to basketball player Kris Humphries. During their divorce hearing, Russell Jay, a producer on the show admitted to several scenes that were not organic.
According to the documents obtained by Life and Style, Kim already knew about the surprise proposal from Kris. Which means that the shock on her face was a complete act. She also re-shot the scene when she didn’t like her reaction the first time around.
“Kim told Kris how, where, and when to propose, it was absolutely no surprise to her whatsoever,” a source once told Radar Online. “First of all, Kris proposed in the middle of the day, and he had to do that because it would create better lighting to capture the moment.”
In fact, the proposal was not what Humphries wanted at all.
“Kris wanted it to be very intimate and romantic, but all of his ideas were shot down by production officials and Kim.”
That wasn’t the only moment of their relationship that was fabricated on the show. Remember when Kim confided in Kris Jenner that she was struggling with her marriage to Humphries? Well, in reality, that was filmed after Kim filed for divorce so she would have already told her mom about it before the scene was ever filmed.
There was another scene where Kim got angry with Humphries for throwing a party in their hotel room while she was supposedly on a trip. Kim was actually in the hotel during the party and the whole scene was created just for the drama.
The Kardashians approve everything
According to a 2011 interview with Piers Morgan, the Kardashian women are able to edit any of the footage from the show.
“From the start, they’ve always said we have, you know, the right to edit and to approve all footage,” Kim told Morgan.
Which means that the women probably only air things that show them in a good light.
