Is Keeping Up with the Kardashians canceled, or about to be, after its incredible run on E!? Are Kris Jenner's nightmares coming true?!
That's the rumor going around ... and it would be music to the ears of many people. Alas, even Star, who reported the story, offers a caveat:
The headline of “Finally Kardashians Canceled!” is not entire the case ... but it's on the “verge of being canceled,” the tabloid alleges.
Gossip Cop claims the story is false and that there are no plans to end the show in the foreseeable future, but Star stands by its report.
Who to trust here? It's impossible to say. All we can do is present the facts, or alleged facts, as first reported by the popular magazine.
You can believe who you want to:
“Kris Jenner is scrambling to save it,” a Star source says of the show, but the issue is that not everyone in her family is sad to see it go.
Quoth the supposed KUWTK insider:
“Kris is absolutely desperate to save the show. But she can’t do that without her kids, and hardly anyone in the family wants to keep doing it.”
“The show has turned into a grind for the kids. But Kris is telling them they’ll be left with nothing if they walk away from what made them famous."
“Kris is desperate to save the show," the source reiterates, and "feels the kids have betrayed her" after all the Momager has done for them.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know there's no shortage of drama to focus on, but therein lies the problem.
Do they (gasp) want a break?!
In the case of Kim Kardashian, the most famous member of the family, Kanye West is “encouraging the mom of two to move on,” Star says.
We can see 'Ye taking a stand like that, but again, it's unclear if he actually did, or if Kim - whose net worth rises by the minute - would oblige.
There's no doubt it must wear on them sometimes to be available 24/7, and make their lives so public, but it's also essential to the brand.
Supposedly, she's “on the fence” ... or not, according to a Gossip Cop report that denies this and says that any such stories are “false.”
Again, who to believe?!
We can tell you that the PR machine is in overdrive in advance of this coming weekend's episode. A bit desperate for ratings, perhaps?
On the flip side, if this "$500 million empire" is on the verge of collapse, as the tabloid claims, how would it even be at the half-billion mark?!
Star's argument may not hold water after all.
At this point, we would not bet on its cancelation. The Kards remain controversial, but popular, and the reality show is a key component.
Heck, with the adorable kids spawned by the family, we could be looking at the next generation of Keeping Up before our very eyes:
What do you think? Will the show really bite the dust?
Should it, for that matter? Have the Kardashians long outlasted their welcome, and will executives at E! finally go in another direction?
Or, will Kris Jenner milk this for every last cent until she retires, which we all know will be never, or Kylie Jenner actually disowns her?
Reports of Keeping Up's demise have been greatly exaggerated before, so until we see it, we're not sure we believe it. At least for now.
