‘KUWTK’: Kourtney Kardashian Is Still Filming the Show
Season 18 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is set to debut on March 29, and it’s about to be full of chaos and drama. As we know from last season, the tension between the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé is at an all-time high. Though Khloé manages to stay out of the drama for the most part, it’s been an all-out war between Kim and Kourtney.
Following a tumultuous Season 17 where Kourtney declared she was taking a step back from filming the reality series, it appears that her issues with Kim will still be a major focal point in forthcoming episodes.
In fact, despite shading the series, Kourtney has been doing quite a bit of filming.
Kourtney Kardashian has been reluctant to film her private life for ‘KUWTK’
In the past couple of years, it’s been clear that Kourtney has been distancing herself from both the series and her siblings. In fact, she had a major confrontation during last season with Kim and Khloé regarding her secretive ways.
Our job is being open and honest and sharing a lot of ourselves and it just seems like for the past few years now, Kourtney hasn’t really been open about her personal life on camera,” Kim explained to her during one episode. “So all of the days that Kourtney isn’t filming, Khloé and I are picking up the slack and having to share more. Because if we’re not sharing our lives, then what is the show?”
Khloé, who was humiliated publically by her ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson and former family friend, Jordyn Woods agreed with Kim. “When big things are happening in one of our lives, it’s our job to articulate to the powers that be and make sure that all of this is captured and documented in an appropriate way,” she said.
Kourtney Kardashian claimed she was over ‘KUWTK’
Kourtney was clear about the toll filming the show has taken on her personal life, specifically her relationship with her children’s father, Scott Disick. Last year, she declared that she was over the show.
“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she told E! News. “But I’m not saying goodbye. But I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet, but it’s being filmed. Currently, in this room.”
Kourtney Kardashian has been actively filming ‘KUWTK’
As we know from the explosive Season 19 teaser trailer, Kourtney is very much a part of this upcoming season of KUWTK. In fact, the Poosh founder just shared some images from her upcoming confessionals on Instagram. She captioned the post, “these are my confessions.”
One fan quipped, “So we’re eating gluten & continuing KUWTK okay kourt do your thaaang.” Kourtney responded with one word, “Balance.”
“She is happy to be filming less, for both herself and the kids,” an insider told People. “As Kourtney and Scott’s kids get older, Kourtney especially feels that public exposure is not really beneficial for the kids. … She feels more and more protective of [them].”
