Still, Keeping Up With The Kardashians almost never saw the light of day.
Indeed, Khloé Kardashian revealed in The Kelly Clarkson Show that the pilot of the show almost was not selected. “I think we shot a pilot or something for Ryan and it didn’t work out. And then an E!

They said to us, ‘You’re going to come on the show, you’re going to start filming, you’re going to be shown in like, two weeks. “

The family, which has grown with Kylie and Kendall Jenner who grew up in front of the cameras before becoming stars in their turn, ensures to have given open heart to the first episodes. “We didn’t even have time to think about it, to really pre-design or pretend anything,” added Khloé Kardashian. “It was really us live, I think that’s really the recipe for the success of the show … we weren’t thinking. And it turns out that this is most definitely the best thing that has happened to us as people identified with us and it looked realistic to some of us. them.”
On September 8, Kim Kardashian announced the discontinuation of the famous reality TV show that made her family famous 14 years ago. “It was with heavy hearts that we made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” she revealed.
