Anyone with eyes and ears could have told E! not to buy Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s six-episode reality show, Rob & Chyna for the simple fact that Kardashian isn’t someone appears comfortable on camera.
And while his whirlwind courtship with Chyna has made for wonderful tabloid fodder, it’s becoming painfully obvious that the show will be a bust.
Unsurprisingly, production source are telling OK! Magazine that Chyna is emerging as the series’ "real star," while Kardashian is "totally boring and whiny."
The source added that the series is really "all about her.”
Kardashian’s discomfort at being back in the spotlight is apparent. He allegedly doesn’t hide the fact that he’s not happy.
“He’s clueless. Chyna is TV gold and Rob is a dud," the source pointed out.
What’s worse is that producers are asking Kardashian to clean up his overall image so that he can appeal to a wider audience. They’ve reportedly asked him to "dress better and to stop talking in a phony street accent but he doesn’t get it."
It’s true. Kardashian’s attempts to acting thug 24/7 are doing him no favors, given that viewers know exactly where he grew up (hint: not Compton).
Now that the honeymoon phase for lovebirds seems to be over, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not this series will produce the kind of love story that E! had promised when the filming for the show was announced on June 1st.
“Very few love stories have created as much pop culture buzz as Rob and Chyna’s, and we are thrilled to see Rob in such a happy place,” a statement from the network’s EVP of Original Programming & Development, Jeff Olde read.
“We are excited to share the next chapter in their relationship.”
Just a few weeks ago, Kardashian deleted all of his Instagrams after fighting with Chyna while filming because he was feeling neglected.
Earlier today, TMZ reported that Kardashian resents the cameras because he believes Keeping Up With The Kardashians "destroyed" his family, and he fears that this new reality show will do the same to his relationship with Chyna.
