Kim Kardashian Wants North West On Keeping Up With The Kardashians Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.30.2014
But Kanye won't let her...
Radar Online reports that producers of Keeping Up With The Kardashians are hoping to get baby North West on the program to battle falling ratings, and Kim Kardashian is being pressured to let her one. While Kardashian thinks it's a good idea, Kanye West has put his foot down and said no, even if it means the show will end. The show brought in 2.56 million viewers for the season nine premiere, down almost half a million from June 2013's season eight premiere.
Ryan Seacrest, who produces the show for E!, "personally reached out to Kim and asked her to consider allowing North on the show, even in just a limited amount."
A source said: "Kim really wants to put North on the show. Viewers and fans of the show want to see Kim interact with her daughter, and how she is as a mother Kim has always been an open book with her fans but once Kanye came on the scene, that all changed. Kanye shuts Kim down whenever she brings it up. [Kanye] doesn't want his daughter ever to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. He thinks reality television is tacky, and doesn't want North on display. He will be very happy when Kim is done with the show."
The two have agreed that their summer wedding will be televised, however. The wedding may take place in France.
Another source added: "Kim persuaded Kanye to let the cameras roll because E! will pick up most of the cost of the wedding. It's a lot easier for a network to deal with logistics of a foreign wedding than if it were just the two of them planning it."
It could bring more viewers to the show with more positive vibes. While season eight focused on the news of Kardashian's pregnancy, season nine focused on the splits of Kris and Bruce Jenner and Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom.
