Why is the show ending?
Many are coming up with various reasons for the show deciding to end. People have said that Kim’s husband Kanye West has been facing with several mental health issues such as bipolar disorder. But the insider information says that Kanye is nowhere related to this decision. They believe that kids have grown and have their own schedules to take care of. Getting them together to shoot will be difficult and hence, they feel it is the right time to end the show. The show also released several spinoffs such as ‘Life of Kylie’, ‘Khloe & Lamar’, ‘I am Cait’ ‘Kourtney and Kim Take New York’ and ‘Kourtney and Khloe take Miami’. Created by Ryan Seacrest, the show has released 18 seasons as of now with a total of 261 episodes.
