Kris Jenner is a Better Fit for ‘RHOBH’ Than ‘KUWTK,’ According to Fans
This November, Kris Jenner will be celebrating her 65th birthday. The famous mom to six children has become a household name over the years. She and her daughters have ruled the reality television airwaves since 2007.
After airing her dirty laundry on television for the past decade, it seems the matriarch of the Kardashian family may be ready for a change. The wealthy momager recently appeared on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH), leaving fans to wonder what’s going on. The online forums exploded with comments from viewers that are trying to determine if Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK) is a sinking ship that Jenner is trying to jump from.
‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’
RHOBH has been on the Bravo channel since 2010. Now in its tenth season, the reality television series focuses on the beautiful, wealthy women of Beverly Hills. Nothing is off-limits as they discuss all aspects of both their personal and professional lives. The drama is never-ending as the glamorous women of 90210 fight about everything under the sun, as Life and Style illustrates.
Despite their antics, these successful ladies are seriously wealthy. Most of them belong to the $50 million net worth club, according to Screenrant, except for Lisa Vanderpump, who has an estimated net worth of $75 million. Jenner has an estimated net worth of $140 million, reports Celebrity Net Worth, so she would have no trouble fitting in with the extravagant women of Beverly Hills. Viewers of both programs believe Jenner belongs on this show, claiming that it’s a better fit for her.
One Reddit user thought that the well-known socialite could carry her own storyline based on her connections to OJ Simpson and “morally corrupt” best friend Faye Resnick. Being married to a transgender former Olympian would only boost the ratings.
Other viewers disagreed, saying that Jenner would never agree to be on the show because of her inability to control the narrative. Some felt that KUWTK was going to continue indefinitely, and Jenner would stay put, especially with the new drama swirling around Kim Kardashian West and her family.
KUWTK is an E! channel reality television series that also focuses on rich, beautiful women. Jenner’s daughters are the subjects of this long-running show that keeps fans tuning in to learn the drama of the day in the Kardashian household. Both shows are similar, making Jenner a natural fit for RHOBH. It remains to be seen if Jenner would want to work with other women instead of her family.
Fans were delighted when Jenner recently appeared on RHOBH, with one viewer saying, “I felt like I was watching a Disney crossover episode when I saw her walk into frame.” They agreed that Jenner looks at home on Real Housewives and would love to see her on both shows. One fan said, “Totally not surprised to see her there… Housewives have popped up on KUWTK before. It’s an organic crossover.”
Viewers are hungry for more of Jenner’s story, saying, “I feel like every time she’s in anything not relating to her kids, she shines more… I feel like KUWTK/her kids just swallow her whole…”
What fans want to see
Fans of both shows would like to see the momager interact with the other housewives. They want to hear more dirt about her younger boyfriend, and they want to see if she loses her cool with the other ladies. What fans don’t want to see is Jenner attacked by the other members of the Real Housewives show. They feel she is vulnerable and non-confrontational, which could make her an easy target. Since RHOBH thrives on arguments and controversy, it could be a hard transition for Jenner.
One Reddit user pointed out that Jenner has the ability to edit KUWTK to allow herself to appear in the light that she decides upon. This would not be the case with Bravo, which could be a deal breaker for Jenner.
Fans agreed that Jenner on the show would make RHOBH more exciting. Some called it their “dream” while others realized that although perfect for the show, “She could easily retire at this point.” It seems that many viewers feel that Jenner should have been on the RHOBH all along.
