Less than 3 months after its debut, Khloe Kardashian’s first talk show has been cancelled.
Executives at FYI Network and Pilgrim Media Group in a statement said, “We appreciate everyone’s great work on the series and are pleased that the show brought new viewers and significant numbers to FYI’s linear and digital platforms,” reads a statement from network bosses. “We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Khloe and thank her for her hard work and unique voice that she brought to the series.”
Reports suggest the decision was mutual, as Khloe is keen to focus on her “other jobs”, and had no interest in shooting another season.
The show’s last episode comes up on Wednesday, April 20. Sources reveal the finale will feature her brother-in-law Kanye West, sister Kim, pregnant Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend.
The show premiered on the FYI cable channel on 20 January (16), and Khloe initially said she was “extremely proud and excited” about the project, which she also produced.
The series was an instant hit and the same network bosses who have now scrapped the programme ordered another 15 new episodes in February (16).
This isn’t the first TV venture of Khloe’s to get the chop – the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star failed to impress as the co-host on the second season of America’s The X Factor in 2012, and lasted just one season as actor and TV personality Mario Lopez’s sidekick.
Guests on Kocktails With Khloe, during which Kardashian chats candidly about sex and glamour while sipping signature cocktails, have included Trey Songz, Dita Von Teese, Travis Barker, Vivica A. Fox, Cassie, and members of her family.
