This rumour follows reports from Page Six that Kardashian and West hooked-up for the publicity of Theraflu and the forthcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on which it’s rumoured that West will appear. P6 is almost-certainly right in its assertions that Kardashian and West timed the reveal of the fauxmance (showmance?) to coincide with the release of West’s song. Moreover, there’s time in the two-months until KUWTK season seven to work the tabloids into a frenzy (it’ll probably cover this week’s ITW and Life & Style, if Miley Cyrus’s downward spiral doesn’t beat them to it).
It’s a pretty much guaranteed ratings grab. Just as the family exploited the wedding for a televised special, and the divorce for Kourtney & Kim Take New York, they probably plan to exploit this relationship despite Kardashian asserting in Cosmopolitan UK that she would never again feature a love-interest on any eponymous reality show.
Well HollywoodLife.com reports that it’s plausible West & Kardashian could film a Kim & Kanye Take New York-style spin-off. Although, their source seems pretty flimsy while feeding off RadarOnline.com’s days-old exclusive that West will appear at the end of KUWTK s7: “Kayne is definitely going to make some appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. He’s all for it. He loves being in the spotlight and getting so much attention. Plus, the rest of the Kardashians, especially Khloe, love him. I think [the Kardashians] are all in awe of his celebrity. Kris [Humphries] never really cared about being on TV and Reggie hated it, but Kanye loves it. He once told Kim that he would love to star in his OWN reality show. How about Kim & Kanye Take New York?!”
