Could this be the end of the Kardashian clan as we know it? Rumors no sooner started swirling that Kendall Jenner would be leaving Keeping Up With the Kardashians than a report came out that another member of the famous family would be bailing on the show -- Rob Kardashian!
A source told RadarOnline:
[Rob] has been holed up in his house, and hasn’t been returning calls from concerned family members. Rob made the decision months ago that he didn’t want to have a recurring storyline on the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and drastically cut back on filming.
This is on top of Bruce basically no longer being on the show either. So the show is pretty much down to Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, and Kris. No men! Well, unless you count Lord Disick.
Of course it makes sense that Rob would want to bail. He doesn't even want to be in front of a camera for his sister's wedding, so he's certainly not going to want to be in front of several for a TV show. The last thing you want is to be filmed when you're not feeling good about how you look.
But Rob seems like he has more beef with the show than just that. The source continues that Rob feels that KUWTK "ruined" his family and that "he feels very alone."
Sounds like he's not getting along with most members of the family either. Kris is reportedly too busy trying to get deals for the girls in the family and is ignoring her only son. And Kim may have accused him of leaking stories to the press -- hence their big argument before the wedding. The insider added:
Everyone in his family is off doing their own thing, but no one seems that concerned with Rob’s well-being.
Well, the truth is Rob is an adult who needs to get his own thing going. Maybe he goes to law school or joins the Peace Corps. He doesn't HAVE to be in show business just because the rest of his family is. Rob, it's up to you to find your happiness. Don't expect anyone else to -- in fact, no one can.
If quitting the show is what it takes to get Rob back on track, then he should do that. But he should also know that the fans sympathize and are pulling for him. Plus, he could totally do a weight-loss show. In fact, maybe this whole weight gain was a career move, who knows.
