On Wednesday, September 9, Kris Jenner, announced on air when she phoned radio host and creator of the TV reality show, Ryan Seacrest, that her family have decided to finally end the popular TV reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” in 2021. This comes as a surprise to many fans, as the show draws to a conclusion by next year which will be the show’s14th year of airing on TV.
Kris said to radio host and creator of the reality TV show, “You’re going to make me cry all over again,” after she disclosed the family’s decision.
Based on the reaction of the famed momanager on whether the news has sunk in, she said, “it really hasn’t.”
She also said, “It’s funny, when we talked yesterday, I kinda had my wits about me and I thought I was really strong. And, you know, this is the right decision,” she continued. “Today I wake up and I was thinking about the first time you and I ever did an interview on the air, and I was so excited and so nervous. “Per Kris, this memory had her “very, very emotional.”
Ryan is actually the creator and executive producer for the longtime E! docu-series, which features Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Rob Kardashian, Scott Disick, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
And, from what Kris told Ryan, she said the family is still coming to terms with their decision.
Kris further stated, “I woke up and was in the gym at 5 o’clock with Khloé and Kim and we just kind of sat there and looked at each other and said, ‘Whoa, what a ride.’ It was quite the morning.”
According to Kris, she noted that she and her family are “coming from a place of such gratitude” as they’re “grateful for every single moment.” Kris Jenner, who is a mother of six children, went on to declare that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is the “best home movies we’ll ever be able to produce.”
On the reason why they decided to end the beloved E! docu-series, Kris said that it was just “the right time.”[tps_start_button label=”Start slideshow” style=”” class=””]
“I think the number 20, well it used to sound good until 2020, but the number 20, it just seemed like the right time,” the KUWTK matriarch explained. “I think for us to take a minute and breathe and everybody slow down a bit. Not slow down professionally, but just you know figure out what our next steps are.”
In a similar statement the Kardashians gave this week, Kris added, “We’ve had such an amazing run and so grateful for every single moment and everyone we work with.”
On the decision to end the reality TV show in 2021, Kris revealed that Khloe has been a member of the family who is finding difficult to come to terms with the family’s decision.
“We had to tell the crew yesterday, so we were all crying,” she shared. “But I think Khloe…is probably the one who is taking it the hardest and really hasn’t stopped crying since we announced. She’s been so sweet and just emotional about it.”
Kris went on to say that the decision was a “hard” one and iterated that it’s been a “very emotional” time for the family.
When Keeping Up With the Kardashians concludes with season 20 in 2021, the family would have been on the air for 14 years.
The show started in October 2007 and brought about a 12 spin off series, which includes Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons, Khloe and Lamar, Sex with Brody, I Am Cait, DASH Dolls, Life of Kylie, Rob & Chyna, Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian and Flip It Like Disick.
