Ever since their dramatic rise to super stardom in 2007 (thanks to a rather infamous sex tape), it is fair to say the Kardashian family have become a popular household name. The show is currently in its 8th season and documents the family’s ups and downs; in particular this series shows Kim’s difficult pregnancy whilst still technically being married to estranged husband Kris Humphries. Sometimes, making the show a rather uncomfortable viewing as they literally give the cameras free reign into their lives, for example; Kim’s frightening trip to the doctors, which probably shouldn’t have been aired, calling into question do the Kardashian’s have boundaries? It seems not!
Last year, the family extended their contract to the series staying on our screens till 2015; however, will Keeping up with the Kardashian’s and the several spin off’s ever stop? What does the future hold for Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the two youngest members of the clan? Kendall (17) is a promising young model in her own right, with features in Harpers Bazaar, Miss Vogue and Seventeen magazine to just name a few! In a recent interview with V magazine, she admitted she would leave the television series for modelling, could this be a sign of things to come? Either way, with the amount of support the youngest girls receive from their tight knit family, I highly doubt they will turn into the next Amanda Bynes!
However, as their individual lives are moving on, Kim on becoming a mother, Kourtney and Scott becoming a powerful duo away from the Kardashian family, the obvious absence of Khloe’s husband Lamar in recent series (he is known to shy away from the spotlight), Rob’s sudden weight gain and personal turmoil (blamed on his break up with Rita Ora). It really does seem like the siblings could easily give up on reality TV and focus on their own personal careers and families,but will they? One thing I will predict is that I highly doubt “North West” (Kimye’s baby) will be making an appearance on the show, due to Kanye West’s declaring in a recent interview that this is not “America’s baby”, we shall soon see!
As long as the Kardashians continue to have an overwhelming dedicated fan base and public interest in the family’s antics remains supersonically high, I do not see Keeping up with the Kardashian’s ever actually stopping, there will always be a spin off related to the family one way or the other, the money will be too good for them to say no to… plus its everyone’s guilty pleasure all over the world!
