‘The Kardashians’: Everything That Has Changed Since the End of ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians’
The Kardashian family said goodbye to cameras last year. After 20 seasons, they opted to end Keeping up with the Kardashians. The family wasn’t planning to walk away from the spotlight for good. In the end, the Kardashians weren’t without cameras for long. The family’s Hulu series, The Kardashians, premiered on April 14, less than a year after E! aired the series finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Still, a lot has happened in the interim.
Kourtney Kardashian found love with Travis Barker
Kourtney Kardashian’s rocky relationship with Scott Disick took up a lot of real estate on Keeping up with the Kardashians. By the end of the series, Kourtney had largely decided she and Scott would never make it work romantically again.
Her next big romance started after the cameras stopped rolling. In January 2021, Kourtney was linked to Travis Barker. Since going public with their relationship, they’ve been canoodling all over the country. In October 2021, Barker proposed. Hulu filmed the proposal for The Kardashians. Hulu will heavily feature the couple’s relationship on the family’s new reality TV series.
Kim Kardashian finalized her divorce from Kanye West
When Keeping up with the Kardashians ended, Kim Kardashian was grappling with the state of her marriage. Since the show’s end, Kim has officially divorced Kanye West and has moved on. She is currently dating comedian Pete Davidson.
While Davidson will not be appearing in season 1 of The Kardashians, the romance is mentioned by family members. Kim once insisted she and Kanye had a friendly relationship following the end of their marriage. That appears to have changed. Since Kim and Davidson went public with their romance, Kanye has seesawed between begging Kim to return to him and criticizing her parenting. Instagram suspended West in March. According to Variety, the social media platform took corrective action after West violated the platform’s harassment policy.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott grew their family
Kylie Jenner opted to keep her first pregnancy a secret. In 2017, Kylie refused to acknowledge chatter that she was expecting her first child. Family followers were correct, though. In February 2018, she announced the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster. The entrepreneur wasn’t as secretive the second time around. In September 2021, Jenner announced her second pregnancy. She gave birth to a baby boy in February.
Kylie and her partner, Travis Scott, initially revealed that they had named their son Wolf. They have since opted to change his name. The pair have yet to announce the baby’s new name.
Kendall Jenner launched a tequila brand
Kendall Jenner, the member of the family who has been considered the least controversial, has had her fair share of drama in recent months. Following the end of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kendall launched a tequila brand that has been heavily criticized. Followers have accused the 818 Tequila owner of cultural appropriation. Critics have also dragged her on social media for irresponsible drinking.
In an even bigger blow, Tequila 512, a rival company, is suing 818 Tequila. According to TMZ, Tequila 512 alleges Kendall’s business utilized similar logo designs and colors with the sole purpose of confusing consumers. On a less controversial note, Kendall has made things official with her boyfriend, Devin Booker.
Kris Jenner spent the hiatus managing her children, and Khloé Kardashian pondered her relationship
Kris Jenner spent the time away from the cameras doing what she’s always done; she managed her children and their business ventures. In the opening of The Kardashians, Kris quipped that she wakes up at 4 am to get everything done.
On the other hand, Khloé has been busy pondering the state of her “situationship” with Tristan Thompson, the father of her child, True. Khloé and Tristan’s relationship has been rife with drama since the beginning, thanks to his wandering eye. He’s cheated on Khloé multiple times. Still, the duo always seems to find their way back to each other. Thompson recently announced he fathered another child while trying to work things out with Khloé.
