Keeping Up With the Kardashians almost didn’t happen. Khloe Kardashian made that reveal when she appeared on the Monday, January 25 episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. It’s hard to imagine pop culture without the show. But at first, the network wasn’t interested in such a series.
Khloe Kardashian reveals how the hit reality show was conceived
The 36-year-old made a virtual appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show today. The Good American founder revealed that Keeping Up With the Kardashians almost didn’t happen.
“I think we shot a pilot or something for Ryan [Seacrest] and it didn’t go anywhere,” Khloe Kardashian explained to host Kelly Clarkson. “And then a show on E! Fell through, so they needed something to fill this dear air time. And they were like, ‘You’re getting on the show, start filming, you’re getting on the air, like, in two weeks.'”
Even though she only had “two weeks” to prepare, Khloe admitted she didn’t feel any “pressure” to be herself. The family didn’t even have any time to think. At the time, there were no storylines or plots. The Kardashians just acted as how they were. Khloe feels that’s the reason for the success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“It was just who we are on the fly and I think that’s what made the show so good…we just weren’t thinking,” Khloe continued. “And it turned out that was probably the best thing to happen to us because it was so, I think, relatable and realistic to some people.”

KUWTK increased in popularity with each passing season. It made the family who they are today. And now they’re all worth at least billions of dollars as a result. Also, each of the family members has hundreds of million adoring fans following them on social media. That show certainly earned them a lot of money.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians is coming to an end
Back in September 2020, the Kardashian-Jenner family announced that Keeping Up With the Kardashians will end its long-running series with Season 20 later this year.
“It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Keeping Up With the Kardashians. After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes, and several spin-off shows, we’ve decided as a family to end this very special journey,” the family wrote on social media. “We are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all these years—through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children. We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.”
Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian signed the announcement, along with Kris Jenner, Rob Kardashians, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Scott Disick. The latest seasons of KUWTK are available for streaming on Peacock.
