If anyone knows how to flip rumors into racks it’s the Kardashians.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Scripts Come From The Rumor Mill
The Kardashians sure know how to capitalize on negative publicity — make it a storyline on their hit reality TV show!
Using reports from last year that Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner and her hubby Bruce were having marital problems, the season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians kicked off with a storyline focusing on the “mutual” idea of Bruce moving out of the family home so he could have his own space.
That’s just one example of the show creating scripts out of family secrets that were first revealed by news outlets.
“Maybe lonely would be good,” Bruce told his sons Brody and Brandon Jenner and Rob Kardashian while house-hunting with them during the premiere episode.
But Khloe Kardashian wasn’t a fan of the idea prompting her mother Kris to tell her, “Until you’ve been married for 23 years, don’t judge our relationship…”
Reports surfaced last year in several magazines, touting trouble between Bruce and Kris, even saying the retired Olympian was moving out of their Calabasas, Calif. home, and network honchos at E! subsequently made this a plot line in the Kardashian reality show.
Guess they figure everyone else (mags, websites, entertainment TV shows) is going to make money off their story, why shouldn’t they?
In early 2012 a report surfaced in a weekly magazine claiming the Kardashian’s father, Robert Kardashian, had confessed to his wife just before his passing in 2003 that daughter Khloe was not his biological child.
According to the report, Robert told his then-wife, Ellen, that he deeply questioned the paternity of Khloe — noting that he and Kris weren’t even sleeping together at the time of her conception with Khloe!
“[But] he never would have considered a DNA test,” Ellen said. “He loved her very much.”
Well, fast forward five months and previews of that season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians touted a DNA test on an upcoming episode — a DNA test that never happened.
Kris had previously admitted in her book, Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian, to an affair around the time Khloe was conceived — initiated a set of paternity tests to put the hotly-debated issue to bed, for better or for worse.
Said Khloé about her suspect paternity:
“Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian. My other dad is Bruce Jenner,” Khloe said. “If you f**ked other people during the same time and you do not know, go on Maury!”
There you have it, the cat is out of the bag. So if you want to know what is going to happen next on Keeping Up With The Kardashians…make sure you are checking BOSSIP!
