‘KUWTK’: How the Kardashians Feel About Kourtney Wanting to Leave the Show
Living your whole life in front of a camera has got to be exhausting. Every trauma, every heartbreak, every low and high has to be lived out in front of the entire world. The Kardashians have been on television since 2007 when their show Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered. Sure, the show has brought about some amazing opportunities, it was the springboard for the sisters’ careers, but it also has allowed the world into every aspect of the women’s lives.
And Kourtney Kardashian has had enough.
Kourtney Kardashian wants to leave ‘KUWTK’
Being a full-time mom is a hard gig on its own. But doing that and juggling multiple businesses is enough to make anyone exhausted. Kourtney now has three children and wants to spend more time focusing on them than filming for a reality television show, which is why she has thought about leaving KUWTK.
“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But I’m not saying goodbye.”
How do the Kardashians feel about Kourtney wanting to leave the show?
You would think that Kim, Khloe, Kylie, and Kendall would be very concerned about their sister wanting to leave the show. After all, the whole premise of KUWTK is to see how the family interacts with each other in real life. But they seemed surprisingly unbothered by the idea of Kourtney’s departure.
“We love Kourtney and we’ll miss Kourtney and whatever she decides to do,” Khloe said.
“I feel like it’s a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, [but] she’ll be back,” she continued. “They all come back.”
And Kim, whose mind is always working on new business ventures, would use the departure as an opportunity for her and Khloe to do a spinoff series together since they have never done that before.
“Like, just Kim and Khloe take… Calabasas,” she said. “That’d be amazing. We can live in the condo with all of our kids and see how that goes.”
But Kourtney would want no part of that spin-off.
“Not for me,” she said.
Has Kourtney tried to leave ‘KUWTK’ before?
Kourtney has always seemed to be the least interested in living the life of a reality star out of all of her sisters. Instead, she likes to focus on being a mom. So, she has been toying with the idea of leaving the show for a while.
In an interview on The Real, she revealed that she thinks about leaving KUWTK pretty often.
“At the current moment, I’m happy and very into my blessings and feeling very good,” she said. “But I definitely have my moments where [I think about leaving], ’cause I mean, life is short.”
She’s even over the constant hustle to get more money. When one of the hosts asked how she felt about her sister Kylie becoming a billionaire and if that put pressure on her to earn more, Kourtney said that the pressure wasn’t enough to make her want to miss out on things in her kids’ lives.
“I mean, probably subconsciously it makes us feels like, you know, when’s it enough? I think that’s a thing I always think to myself, ‘When is it enough?’” she said. “Because I don’t like missing out on certain things like doing my kids’ homework or certain after school activities.”
