Khloe Kardashian's highly-anticipated talk show Kocktails With Khloe got off to a rough start and, according to a Kardashian family insider, fakery is to blame!
"Producers said that the first episode felt contrived," the insider told RadarOnline.com exclusively, adding, "They are not loving the way that it turned out."
And neither are many of the viewers! Twitter users ripped into the show minutes after it premiered on FYI network on Wednesday, January 20.
Jason Levesque, @securitynmore, asked fans, "This is what trends? 2016 is already starting to s**k. America is going downhill fast."
Another Twitter user, @saramarie72, wrote, "I need to stop watching #KocktailsWithKhloe before she's not my fav Kardashian anymore. What is this sh*t?"
But according to the Keeping up with the Kardashians family insider, even 31-year-old Khloe – who prides herself on being so real – is a fake!
The show's premiere featured Khloe's younger model half-sister Kendall, 20, telling sister Kim, 35, over the telephone that she was pregnant.
However, that was just a lie to stir up ratings, the insider said.
"The whole Kendall thing was staged by Khloe herself because she knew that it would grab headlines," said source. "And it did."
As if that wasn't bad enough, the source told Radar, "The drinks that they all are drinking, for the most part, are not even alcoholic!" Indeed, Khloe admitted her own sister Kendall rarely imbibes.
As Radar previously reported, the network was having problems booking talent for the show and it seems that the problem has not been solved.
Said the source, "They are still having issues getting people to be on the show. So for now, they will continue to use Khloe's family as guest stars."
Needless to say, the outspoken Kardashian will have to pull out all the stops on the second episode if this show is going to stay afloat, as fans including @TelitaBobita continue to write on Twitter that they "won't watch again."
