Whoa. As if the show isn't already desperate enough for ratings, there's a rumor going around that a leading lady may quit Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which would no doubt make it even less appealing to tune in for.
Are you believing this? I mean, can you honestly imagine what the show would be like without each and every single member of the cast? Each one of them adds their own special element of drama that simply can't be replaced, so this could prove to be pretty devastating for the series.
Ok, ok -- I'll spill.
In case you hadn't noticed, Kendall Jenner's modeling career is really taking off. It's not like she needs to keep herself attached to her famous fam to have a successful career -- and she certainly doesn't need a reality TV show to keep herself in the spotlight. Yep. Kendall might be cutting ties with KUWTK for good.

Being a model has to be a lot more satisfying work, right? Oh come on, don't you think strutting her stuff on the runway is more appealing than being followed around by camera crews all the time?
In a recent interview with E!, Kendall said of her life as a model, "I get more and more comfortable with everything. It's fun though, it's the world I wanna be living in, so it's awesome."
Hmm. Do you see what she did there? She referred to modeling as "the world I wanna be living in ..." which means she must be planning on saying goodbye to the TV side of showbiz, right?
And honestly, if she is truly planning on leaving Keeping Up With the Kardashians after season 10, no one can really blame her. How is she going to make a name for herself that's separate from the rest of the crew if she doesn't break free from them fairly soon? Regardless of whatever they all do in their respective careers, they are kind of lumped together into one group. Kendall will never be taken seriously as a model if she doesn't distance herself a bit.
(Just look at how much heat Kim Kardashian took for being on the cover of Vogue.)
Leaving the show might be the best thing that ever happened to her, especially if it helps her establish herself as her own brand, which is pretty much a necessity in the modeling world.
But if she does really say goodbye to reality TV, you know she's going to have quite the fight on her hands as far as Kris Jenner is concerned. There's no way she's going to let any of her daughters do something that might be detrimental to the show if there is any way she can prevent it, so Kendall had better be ready to go down swinging.
Do you think it's a good move for Kendall to leave KUWTK?
