Will viewers want to Keep Up with the Kardashians if Kourtney leaves? We may find out.
For months now, tension between Kourtney and her sisters have been rising. Last summer, on Keeping Up, viewers saw Kim and Kourtney reach an almost-breaking point over their differing priorities in terms of family and work, and in a recent interview with Paper, Kourtney confessed that she’d love to leave the show in the dust.
She said: "I always say I want to move away someday and just be away from it all. Sail away. No one will ever see me again. I keep throwing up different places, but then I'll go there to visit and I'll be like, 'Nope, this isn't it, but glad I came.' We've just been to Finland. And I was like, 'Check, it's great for me to visit, but I'm not going to move there.' Maybe Norway. Switzerland? I've got a lot of ideas."
On Sunday, KUWTK producer Ryan Seacrest was put on the spot by an ET reporter who brought up the subject. Seacrest seemed taken aback, but then said: "Well, if the cameras go away, as long as they can come back, Kourtney. You know, they can go away for a little bit, but bring 'em back so we can do another season or two. Honestly, I don't know how they do it."
He continued: "I could not do it, no matter what they were paying them. I could not do it, so I give them a lot of credit for having those cameras in their lives all the time. And I love you Kourtney. Love her."
