Khloé Kardashian has been called many things over the years, but a failure is not one of them. The 36-year-old model and TV personality is estimated to have a net worth of 40 million dollars and holds an amazing follower count of 128 million on Instagram. (And isn’t just because she’s gorgeous!)
What has really turned heads today so far has been her most recent interview she had with Kelly Clarkson on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” where she discussed the fascinating details of the origins for the TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and on how it was never expected to have more than 1 season!
During the fantastic interview with Clarkson, Khloé shared that while they did in fact try to start the show with a pilot episode, their executive producer Ryan Seacrest didn’t think it would catch on and passed it up… until one of E! network’s other shows “fell through” and they needed something to cover the missing time!
“We shot a pilot for Ryan Seacrest and it didn’t go anywhere,” she said. “And then a show on E! fell through, so they needed something to fill that dead air time.”
But as previously mentioned, the Kardashian/Jenner family was told that they shouldn’t expect the show to have more than 1 season since it was just supposed to be “filler”.
“They were like, ‘You’re getting the show, start filming. You’re getting on the air in, like, two weeks,'” Khloé continued. “We were just so excited asking what to expect and they said, ‘Don’t get too comfortable here. It’s just filler. Just film.'”
But as the lovely model goes on to explain, knowing that the show wasn’t going anywhere is one of the reasons she thinks the show was even successful!
‘No Pressure On Ourselves’
“I actually really appreciate them saying that because we were just thinking, We’re not going to have a Season 2. Let’s just film, have fun, and be ourselves. This isn’t going anywhere. They’ve told us we’re just filling up dead air time. And so we had no pressure on ourselves,” Khloé said.
She also shared that the spontaneity of the show caused them to be far more comfortable during filming, which made every episode a look into their real lives, not some kind of propped up experience.
Khloé’s mother Kris Jenner shared that she knows how hard it was for her to say goodbye to the crew, and her daughter echoed those feelings.
“The hardest part is not seeing the crew every day,” Khloé said. “We’ve had the same production crew since Season 1 essentially, and since Season 3 it’s been the same solid core. They’re my extended family at this point, so not seeing them every day has been hard.”
As the show comes to an end, many fans are eager to see what the future holds for the fabulous family!
