Could Kylie Jenner really replace Kim Kardashian?

That has been a key question on the minds of Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans everywhere in the wake of Kim being held at gunpoint in Paris

Kim has been in the spotlight for many, many years and it appears that her ordeal in Paris has pushed her towards living a life away from the public eye.

There’s no denying that Kim was the reason that KUWTK became the huge hit it once was, but would the brand really be able to hold much water if Kim ditched them?

According to a new report, Kris Jenner is lobbying for Kylie to dethrone Kim to make sure the brand is viable for some more time. 

“She’s told Kylie they need to strike while the iron’s hot to replace their queen,” the source said.

And instead of being jealous, Kim, 36, is actually “supportive of this move and says Kylie is the perfect sister to replace her.”

Pretty crazy. Right?!

It would be really surprising if Kim was really on board with this.

I mean, I know she and Kylie released that video last year with Kim saying Kylie would be a great successor to her and all, but all of this just seems premature. 

Kylie does lead an eventful life and is getting a whole lot of recognition. However, not all of that recognition is good. 

Kylie is currently dating Tyga. He’s the guy who is always in the media for "forgetting" to pay his bills. 

He comes across as one of the most obnoxious people in the celebrity world. It’s truly worrying to wonder what the heck Kylie sees in the guy.

Now, we all know that there’s not a chance in hell that Kris Jenner will let the brand sink into oblivion. She will have plans in place to make sure the family are still making money. 

Say what you want about Kris Jenner, but it’s clear knew a thing or two about economics in school. 

The very thought of the Kardashians disappearing is scary, but the once hot E! reality series is sagging in the ratings. 

It’s still one of the top shows on the network, but the talent won’t come cheap for it. 

They are all pretty famous, but it would be interesting to know just how much E! parts with to make the show. 

The writers room must be making a lot of money for all of the crazy storylines.
