Kris Jenner's career as a talk show host may not be over yet. Yesterday, several outlets reported that Fox pulled the plug on Kris after its six-week trial run. The sources claimed the network is pointing at overall lower-than-expected ratings for the gab fest, which counted NeNe Leakes and Kanye West as guests. Yeezy's appearance, of course, yielded the show's highest-ever ratings when he debuted a picture of North West, his baby girl with Kim Kardashian, on the show.
Sources inside Jenner's camp, however, are countering the claims of cancelation, saying it's "way too early" for the network to have made such a decision. "On top of that, Fox likes the show," an insider tells Us Weekly. And according to The N.Y. Daily News, a spokesperson for Fox simply said, "Rumors are false."
Regardless of whether the rumors are true, it's been a rough week for the Jenner-Kardashian clan. Jenner's daughter Khloé Kardashian has been facing serious marital problems, with her husband Lamar Odom rumored to be battling an addiction to drugs and prescription painkillers. The NBA free agent, who was out of sight for most of the week, resurfaced during the last 48 hours at the home he shares with Kardashian, and rumor had it that the estranged couple were working on a reconciliation. Odom also allegedly cheated on his wife with at least two women in the last couple of years.
However, Page Six counters that famed younger sister to Kim and Kourtney Kardashian is close to initiating divorce proceedings, and that her mother has contacted high-powered attorney Laura Wasser to oversee the split. Other insiders claim that Kardashian has not made up her mind about divorce and is currently focused on helping Odom get treatment for his drug problems.
Odom's future in both the NBA and his marriage is still unclear, but it seems like he has plenty of people rallying for his recovery.
The strain on one side of the TV family couldn't serve as a greater contrast to the joy on the other. Jenner's most famous daughter, Kim Kardashian, is seemingly ensconced in domestic bliss with her newborn baby and boyfriend Kanye West.
