Kim Kardashian dropped a potential bombshell on the latest episode of The Kardashians.
Standing in front of Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, Kourtney’s husband Travis Barker and her mother Kris Jenner on the July 13 installment of this Hulu reality show, Kim made it sound like she had chosen her next leading role.
“So…a Disney executive called me, Rob Mills,” he told these loved ones, referring to Disney’s executive vice president of unscripted content, which owns Hulu and ABC.
“They wanted to call me directly and then I would connect them with you once I decided whether or not I would.
“I’m going to do The Bachelorette show.”
There is! Kim Kardashian as The Bachelorette?!? Everyone standing in front of her at the time reacted in disbelief…but mother Kris went one step further.
“No, it’s not happening. No,” Kris said in a confessional.
“I’m not a mom, manager, mother, name a title, I’ll wear whatever hat you want. But you’re not going to do this.
Kris, of course, has controlled every aspect of her daughter’s career… including orchestrating the Kim Kardashian sex tape that made this family famous.
Khloe, for her part, was also skeptical, telling her sister:
“You are 100% not doing this. There’s no way in hell she’s doing this.
At one point in the episode, Kris even called Mills to confirm the alleged news… and the Disney exec said they were “90 percent of the way there” to getting Kim’s season of The Bachelorette resolved.
And yet… Kris wasn’t buying it, telling Mills it wasn’t “exactly the space” she envisioned Kim in.
Finally, in the wake of this conversation, Kim spoke up and cleared up the controversial air.
I was kidding!
“These kids love a good joke,” Kris said in her confessional. “And I’m always the victim of the joke!”
We’re guessing this episode was filmed on April Fool’s Day, though Jenner probably should have been aware all along that it was a joke if that’s the case.
The Kardashians can also be desperate for some content if they spend so much time in an episode on one joke.
In other news related to Kim’s love life, she may have hooked up with Tom Brady the other day.
It is unknown how Kanye West feels about this possible connection.
But we assume Brady doesn’t care.
