People Are Starting to Dislike ‘KUWTK’ Because the Kardashians Seem to Hate Each Other
All good things must come to an end, but it’s starting to appear like mediocre ones can go on forever. At least, that’s the sense some Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans are getting. Loyal fans obviously want to see the show through to the end, but will the Kardashians admit when it’s time to pull the plug? Cancellation rumors have already swirled several times, but each time fans think they’re finally seeing things come to a close, the announcement is made that the show will go on.
One of the main reasons that people are tired of watching the show drag on and on is because of the relationships between the cast members. This close glimpse at a family is supposed to reveal the bonds between them, but more and more it seems like they don’t even like each other. Whether it’s the stress of the cameras rolling or that they really have grown apart, fans are tired of watching it.
Family fighting has featured heavily on KUWTK
It’s not like the show has ever been drama-free. In fact, a big part of the attraction to the show was getting to see the ups and downs of these celebrities’ lives. However, earlier seasons didn’t seem to be quite so full of anger and spite. Now, the fights between the sisters seem to be drowning out everything else, and they’re going on for much longer.
Throughout much of the show’s 17th season, a fight was building between Kourtney Kardashian and her sisters Kim and Khloé Kardashian. Kim and Khloé felt like Kourtney was no longer pulling her weight on the show, and they were feeling the pressure of having to fill airtime with their own lives. Kourtney, meanwhile, was dealing with her own family dramas and ultimately announced she needed to take a step back from filming.
All of that conflict came to a violent head in the season 18 premiere when Kourtney and Kim got into a physical altercation on-screen. To make matters even worse, this fight became part of the teaser for the show’s premiere, making the anger even more of a central focus than it already had been.
More family members are getting in on the feud
The fight seemed mostly contained to Kim and Kourtney, and with Kourtney leaving the show, there was an opportunity for the drama to die down and get back to less angry topics. However, it now looks like things are set to get even worse. The drama has spilled out to other family members who are taking sides in the battle.
Kylie Jenner took to Twitter, and her posts there seemed to suggest she supported Kim’s claim over Kourtney’s. “Kourtney is just straight unapologetic lol #kuwtk,” Jenner posted. The fact that she, too, was using the battle to promote the show while also taking a shot at her oldest sister suggests that the drama is far from done. Even with Kourtney largely off-screen, the fallout from the conflict looms large.
Fans are tired of the fighting and anger
A little bit of drama is fun, but this fight has been dragging on and on for months, and fans are growing weary. In fact, many of them think that this battle is a sign that the show should finally be done for good. The battle over who owes more screen time to the show has made fans question the entire premise behind the latest seasons.
“When the show first started, Khloe and Kourtney were living together in [a] small apartment. They obviously weren’t wealthy millionaires when the show first started. That’s what made them so interesting to watch. They wanted fame and fortune so bad. Season 1 and 2 will always be classic reality TV. Nowadays the show is so scripted and out of touch with reality because they’re pampered billionaires,” one fan wrote on Reddit.
Back when the show started, the chance to be on-screen was a privilege for the sisters to make their break in the world. Now it’s a burden, and that makes it a lot less fun to watch. Perhaps it’s time that they just accept that their role has changed and give fans the closure they want.
