It seems as though the ink has barely dried on the marriage license before Kanye West started asserting himself in the legal position as head of household. According to Radaronline, momager Kris Jenner had planned for daughter Kim to appear on the “KUWTK” spinoff “Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons.” However, one source told Radar, “There’s no way Kanye was going to allow Kim do it. It’s no secret how much Kanye dislikes and despises Kim’s involvement with realty TV and there was no way it was going to happen so soon after the wedding.”
The close insider also added that Kim’s mom is furious because she is under pressure from Ryan Seacrest Productions and E! to have Kim on the show instead of Kourtney. Apparently, the network is afraid the new reality series will be a ratings flop without Kim. Meanwhile, Khloe is already preoccupied with new boyfriend, rapper French Montana.
One could say there are lessons to be or should be learned. Kim started filming “Kim & Khloe Take New York” immediately after her televised wedding to NBA baller Kris Humphries. The cameras rolled right up until their marriage dissolved some 72 days later. Perhaps Kanye has a fear of history repeating itself.
Another issue Jenner is said to be having with her new son-in-law is the matter of name change. It is said that she will not allow Kim to be professionally known by the rapper’s last name, Kim’s new last name. According to the same source, “There is no way Kris would ever give her blessing for the main cash cow of the Kardashian empire to not continue to use that name professionally without fighting tooth and nail.”
Since the Kardashian name is a major brand, it is safe to assume Jenner would not want the family cash register to cash out on them. The source concluded with, “Kanye doesn’t want her doing anymore reality television than she is contractually obligated to do. If Kim does agree to film, it will likely be without Kanye’s knowledge beforehand.” Yeezus no.
Filming for the spin-off is slated for this summer in New York.
