The new season of “KUWTK,” as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is so typically abbreviated, will prominently function Kanye, who can be commonly (and novelly) interviewed for into-the-camera confessionals. He and Kim married in 2014 and ever since he has exerted his imaginative and prescient on the present and the household’s associated companies. He’s not simply one other character coming and going like lots of the different males, however a significant power behind all of it.
If Kris is the founder and chief govt of Kardashian Inc., Kanye has turn into the artistic director. He ceaselessly texts with the producers, providing enter on the opening pictures which initially had a 1970s sitcom really feel and now function the girls in nude tones and modern, silvery poses. And he shared his ideas on the backdrop of the confessionals, which now bathe the girls in amber mild. “He’s a real creative force, clearly, and had thoughts on marketing, thoughts on presentation of the show, on the opening title sequence,” mentioned Adam Stotsky, the president of E!
I instructed Kim that Kanye’s involvement jogged my memory of an episode of the present from once they had been first courting. In it, she cries as he throws out her clothes throughout a closet makeover together with his stylist. “So, it’s basically like that but for business,” Kim mentioned. “He’ll have a room full of a dozen people or sometimes three of us and we go over packaging and colors and the photo shoot.”
The day I talked to Kris, Kanye had simply come over. (They reside throughout the road from one another in the similar gated group in Calabasas, Calif.) He pointed to a brand new piece of furnishings. “He said, ‘I really think that little entry table would look better over there. So what did I do? I moved the entry table,” Kris mentioned.
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” might’ve been a big hit and nonetheless light like “The Osbournes,” one other actuality present that put celeb household dynamics on show. Even “The Apprentice,” which attracted 20 million viewers in its first season, had fizzled by the time Trump ran for president, 14 seasons later. “There is no one who can sit here and say they saw or expected this,” Seacrest mentioned.
But Kris insisted that by the second season, she might inform that the present — and her household — had endurance. “I knew we had something, and Kim and I really sat down and made a list of our goals,” she mentioned.
Asked if the sisters had lived as much as their mom’s expectations, Kim didn’t hesitate. “Everything she wanted happened,” she mentioned.
