Did the Kardashians get cancelled?

The show that brought life back into reality TV has now come to an end, but why? 

When Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired on 14 October 2007, nobody knew that they would become the kings and queens of reality television. Created by TV host, Ryan Seacrest, the show focuses on the fascinating lives of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. From their scandalous relationships to their medical records, the show left no stones unturned when it came to the reality stars’ private lives.

In true Hollywood style, however, controversy is always at the forefront of fame. In the same year that the first episode aired, Kim Kardashian, at the time, was in for a shock when her sex tape with singer, Ray J, was leaked. Being linked to somebody as famous as Ray J meant lots of airtime and stories being run in every tabloid there was across the world.

Many people speculated that so-called “momager,” Kris Jenner, leaked the tape in hopes of creating a hype around the family before the premiere episode later that year. Each family member has since followed suit, considering their long list of controversial news that have been topping headlines every year.

After 20 seasons, 14 years and endless controversies, Keeping Up With The Kardashians has finally come to an end, and controversy is not the reason. Many believed that it was because of the eldest Kardashian, Kourtney. Kourtney had shown disinterest in the show for over two seasons, stating that she now wants a private life for herself and her children.

However, Kris was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when she claimed that they had collectively reached the decision to end the show. She also revealed that the decision was sudden. “We’ve been with the same crew since the start, they are now like extended family to us. Khloe was the saddest, she stayed with the crew for hours reminiscing about old times,” she told Ellen.
