Kim Kardashian Almost Tried Out For This Popular Reality Show Before Booking 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'
It's not a coincidence!
We all know the Kardashians were meant to be on reality television. Their lives are way too crazy, cool, and dramatic to not have a TV show surrounding their lives. From family drama, to pregnancies, to breakups and all the brand deals in between, Keeping Up with the Kardashians was always meant to be. Kim Kardashian even said so.
In an interview with Business of Fashion, Kim reveals that when she was younger, she was working in her dads office and felt unfulfilled. She said she had worked there for years, hated college, and wanted something bigger. Her backup plan? The popular MTV show The Real World. Kim admits that she went to college for four years, didn't graduate, but always dreamed of being on reality TV saying, "When I was really young I always was, it’s the weirdest thing, but I loved The Real World. And I would say to my best friend’s dad who was a manager, ‘You should be my manager! And when we’re 18, I’m going to send a tape into The Real World because I have to be on a reality show". How weird is that?!
She says that's when it clicked that reality TV is what she wanted to do, and also said, "And then the producers that produced The Real World produced my show, so it kind of all came full circle.” It definitely did. Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on the air for 11 years and 14 seasons and the girls signed on for 5 more seasons. Kim definitely knew in her gut that she would do reality TV, even appearing on Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton's show The Simple Life, as well as a brief cut-out clip on The Hills. So even though she was on MTV a couple of times, she was meant to be on E!
We're not quite sure how long Keeping Up will be on the air, even though they've signed on for another five years. However, with all these new grandkids, I'm sure Kris Jenner will make something happen. Maybe Kim can predict the future for them, too?
