It’s been a long reality TV road for Kourtney Kardashian. The eldest Kar-Jenner sister has been starring in her family’s hit series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, for 13 years — and she’s finally over it. After a recent interview with Vogue Arabia in which she called the filming environment “toxic,” we rounded up all of Kourt’s quotes about quitting the show that made her a household name so we can properly say goodbye. Cue the tears.
The Poosh founder first revealed she was planning to take a step back from the reality series in November 2019. “I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there, but I am not saying goodbye,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “But I think you will have to see more of it on the new season — season 18.”
The season is currently on a summer hiatus after the first six episodes aired amid the coronavirus pandemic quarantine in the spring. The show will return in September … and it looks like we’ll see a lot less of Kourtney when it does.
At the time, her siblings Kim Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian were quick to share their opinions on the lifestyle blogger’s decision. “Yeah, I mean, we definitely love Kourtney and will miss Kourtney and whatever she decides to do,” KoKo explained. “But people come, people go all the time in this family. We feel like it’s a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, she’ll be back. They all come back.”
However, Kourt’s younger sister — and one of her closest confidants — Kendall Jenner also addressed the situation in January and noted the brunette beauty isn’t “necessarily” leaving the show entirely.
“I think Kourtney kind of has boundaries, which is totally understandable,” she explained during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I’ve always kind of not let my personal life entirely on the show so it’s just kind of always been a thing for me. But for Kourtney, she did at one point let her personal life be on the show so now it’s a bit more of a shift, I guess, for everyone to understand. But no, I don’t think she’s fully confirmed to not be on the show. Let’s just say it gets a little crazier before it gets any better.”
