‘KUWTK’: Kim Kardashian West and Her Sisters Are Filming the Season 18 Finale in Quarantine
We’re smack dab in the middle of Season 18 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. To say that things have been dramatic is a massive understatement. The Season 18 premiere kicked off with an explosive fight between Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian. Tensions between the sisters had been brewing for quite some time. The KKW Beauty founder felt that she along with her younger sister, Khloé Kardashian were carrying the show while Kourtney slacked off.
For her part, Kourtney was trying to set boundaries between the series and her personal and private life. As someone who has put her entire life on display for over a decade, the Poosh founder has other priorities, namely being a mother. For Kourtney, KUWTK was no longer a priority. In addition to the drama between Kim and Kourtney, Khloé has also been experiencing backlash about her relationship with her ex, Tristian Thompson, especially after she quipped she wanted to borrow some sperm from him for a sibling for her daughter.
Though most of the events of Season 18 of KUWTK have already happened, Kim Kardashian West just revealed that she and her sisters are shooting the Season 18 finale individually from quarantine.
The KarJenners are social distancing away from each other
Though they’ve had brief interactions, namely for Kourtney Kardashian’s 41st birthday car parade, the KarJenners are all social distancing in their respective homes. Kim Kardashian West has been trying to keep busy with her four children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm and her husband Kanye West.
Kourtney Kardashian has been with her children, Mason, Penelope and Regin. Khloé Kardashian celebrated her daughter True’s 2nd birthday with a Trolls-themed cake in quarantine. Kylie Jenner has been bonding with her baby daughter, Stormi and Kendall Jenner has remained very low-key amid all of these. Still, it’s clear that the family has been missing each other.
“I was organizing my photos in my phone and found this and miss my sisters but we are all social distancing and staying away from each other all separately self quarantined,” the KKW Beauty mogul said. “It’s hard but we have to do this for our safety and for everyone else’s. PLEASE do not ignore the severity of the warnings to stay inside to stop the spread of this virus. We will all get through this! #TogetherApart.”
Kim Kardashian West is being trolled during quarantine
Though Kardashian West is doing her best to get through this time, that hasn’t stopped people from trolling her. Fans have accused her of using her children to be more relatable. When she wrote on Instagram asking for advice, trolls also brought up her massive net worth. She asked, “What is everyone doing to keep your kids entertained??? As a family, we are social distancing but need some fun ideas of what to do! Any suggestions would help!”
Then, when she shared a selfie to send everyone love, fans called her tone-deaf, demanding that she send money instead. “Money is what we need, Kimberly,” one fan tweeted. “Cash. We need. Cash,” another follower quipped. “How many testing kits could your grotesque wealth buy, Kim? How many hospital beds? How many surgical masks?” one follower wrote.”SEND US CORONA VIRUS TEST KITS,” another fan urged. It should be noted that Kardashian West has donated extensively to causes that support COVID-19 relief.
The Season 18 finale of ‘KUWTK’ is being filmed in quarantine
It looks like we’re going to get a deeper look into the KarJenner’s lives amid quarantine. Kardashian West revealed that they will be shooting the Season 18 finale from within their homes.
“We filmed the entire season, except for the last episode,” Kardashian West said during a remote appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. “We were in filming, so now that we’ve shut down production. It’ll be all of us in quarantine, filmed separately by ourselves. We have iPads set up and our iPhones, and the whole last episode will be what we do in quarantine. I literally have no idea whatever everyone else has been doing. KUWTK is still filming, but I am now my glam squad, camera operator, lighting team, and producer.”
This should be interesting.
