“Kris says all the time she wants the show to go on for ten more seasons, and if she had her way she'd do the show until she dies," an insider said.
The momager wouldn't let go of the franchise that made her family famous so Jenner's goal at the moment is to get a multi-year renewal at E! and to keep going from there, snitched the source.
But there's one big setback — the Kar-Jenner ladies have already moved on. "Kim is already moving on to produce new projects of her own and the rest of the girls have terrific footholds in modeling and merchandising," said the informant. "Of the family, only for Kris is keeping the show on the air the #1 priority, and the network has already given up on their once lucrative business of creating spinoffs of the show."
Even Ryan Seacrest, who is still as involved as he can be, has other things he's working on and leaves Kim to her own devices in terms of keeping the show relevant," the insider told Radar exclusively.
Added the source: "It doesn’t help that pretty much the only advice people give Kris about all this is that she – and the kids – should quit ‘KUWTK’ before they get fired! That's just not where her heart is at all!”
As Radar previously reported exclusively, much of the Kar-Jenner plan are itching to get out of the show. Kourtney was ready to bid adieu after she was OVER keeping up with her “attention starved” sister Kim, according to insiders.
On the season 15 premiere of Keeping up with the Kardashians, a battle erupted between the two brunette beauties. According to a family insider, bad blood still exists between the sisters months after filming wrapped!
Sources at the time told Radar Kourt “doesn’t want to do KUWTK anymore and her family knows this.”
“She hasn’t wanted to do this for a couple of years now and told Kris that she does not want to sign another contract after this one ends."
“She got what she needed out of the show and it has made her insanely wealthy,” the source explained. “At the same time, it has destroyed her relationship with Kim and it is beyond repair.”
Meanwhile, Kendall and Kylie were feeling the same way. According to a source close to the Kardashians, although the 21-year-old supermodel and her younger sister are under contract with the show that forced fame unto them, they were itching to leave the series once and for all to continue to focus on their own brand when that contract expires.
