Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner Clash Over Planned Kim-Kanye Reality Show
A Kim Kardashian-Kanye West addition to the fine E! line of programming? Sure, on Kris Jenner's watch, HollywoodLife.com reports.
No, seriously: she's adament that she's behind the wheel, or there's Hell to pay.
Kim reportedly wants a simple series highlighting the respective music and fashion ventures of herself and her Rocafella rapper-producer boyfriend. Jenner reportedly can't leave well enough alone. According to Hollywood Life, she wants complete creative control and generously added personal drama known to sweeten ratings.
Kris may have the leverage that she's helping Kim buy the London pad for the two where the series will be filmed during November's Kardashian Kollection fashion line launch in England's capital.
Easy with the straw. The camel's back is creaking.
"It's not pretty!" one source close with Kim said. "Kim is sick and tired of Kris trying to control every aspect of her new reality show with Kanye. They don't share the same vision at all. Kim wants it to be cute and sweet and Kris wants drama, drama, drama!"
It sounds like the show may not happen at all if mother and daughter can't overcome their creative impasse, the family source claims. West, who's never met publicity he didn't like, supports the venture but won't cast a deciding vote between Kim and her mother.
"Kris is convinced that the show will only do well if there is drama, so she wants Kim and Kanye to pretend like they are fighting over which flat to purchase in London," the source claims. "Kim thinks this is completely ridiculous and is not willing to put on an act for ratings."
For those just sitting down with their popcorn and peanuts to the Kardashian Family Cluster-Circus, this isn't the first time Kris has reportedly flexed this muscle. She's been previously accused of orchestrating the 2007 sale and release of Kim's 2003 sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J. There's been similar debate as to how active a role she played in the publicity bonanza of Kim's 72-day marriage to former Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries.
Also, it was supposedly Jenner who harangued son Rob Kardashian to take part in the 13th season of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars" in 2011, and was adamant that he out-perform Kim's prior short-lived 2008 run, in which she placed 11th for the season.
