Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner are reportedly keen to end “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” on a “high note” soon — because Jenner has her sights set on winning an Academy Award.
The hugely successful reality TV series follows the lives of the Kardashian and Jenner clan, including sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé, and has spawned spin-off shows including Kourtney & Kim Take New York and Khloé &Lamar. “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is now in its eighth season and according to reports, family matriarch Kris and daughter Kim are keen to end the show while it’s still popular.
“It has been the biggest reality franchise of highest. Both Kim and Kris want to make sure they end on a high note, leaving fans wanting more, rather than try and stretch the show on for another few seasons and watch it die a death,” a source told Naughty But Nice Rob. “Plus, they are now moving on in their lives… exploring new options and opportunities.”
Kim and beau Kanye West recently welcomed daughter North into the world. The source added that brunette beauty Kim is eager to change up her lifestyle now she’s a mother.
“Kim wants to be with her daughter and Kanye, while Kris wants to focus on being a talk-show host and maybe start producing movies. She’s telling everyone that one day she will have an Oscar,” the source continued.
The Kardashian/Jenner clan have amassed significant fame and wealth from their TV series. The insider revealed that they have all made so much money “that they never need to work again.”
“They want a break from the cameras — that shouldn’t be too surprising,” the source explained.
Kim has previously been vague about the show’s future. The 32-year-old star addressed the subject on her blog earlier this year.
“The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don’t know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I’m looking forward to continuing this journey,” she said.
Meanwhile, Kris was seen feuding with stepson Brody Jenner in the latest episode of the show.The star and husband Bruce were caught up in a war of words after Kris didn’t invite Brody on the family vacation to Greece.
She later made plans for her husband’s son to join, explaining: “I’m not the evil stepmonster you think I am. I just want a little bit of credit.”
Brody was caught on camera saying: “To hear that everyone else was invited and I wasn’t included hurt,” before asking his dad where his call was.
Bruce was seen confronting his wife about the situation, to which she retorted: “He’s busy or he flakes. I always feel like Brody’s so busy he doesn’t have time for us.”
Bruce – who is currently trying to mend the strained relationship with his son — snapped back: “Your job is to invite him.”
