Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna's spinoff show idea could be a red flag
Does Blac Chyna see more benefit to dating Rob Kardashian than just his company?
New reports suggest that she does. According to Us Weekly, the new couple may be gunning for their own reality TV series.
"They’re talking about doing their own reality show," a source told the magazine of Kardashian and Blac Chyna, who have been dating for about a month now.
But they'll have some hurdles to overcome if it's going to actually happen. The insider told Us Weekly that E!, the network that produces Keeping Up With the Kardashians, would be reluctant to greenlight a series starring Kardashian, since he's refused to participate in his family's series since 2013.
"E! would be hesitant about a spinoff," the source explained. "They’d need to see him film on Keeping Up first."
It's surprising that Kardashian would even consider it, after he's been so careful to stay out of his family's limelight, so it's hard not to think the whole concept might be Blac Chyna's plan. But according to the source, the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family is eager to have Rob back to participating in the show.
"Kris Jenner would totally get behind this," the insider said. "If it takes Blac Chyna to help Rob rejoin life, Kris will be on board."
The only member of the family who might not be so eager to see Kardashian and Blac Chyna join KUWTK is Kylie Jenner, who is dating Blac Chyna's ex and baby daddy, Tyga. The source, who is reportedly close to the whole family, admits that it would take an awkward talk with Kylie to bring Kardashian and Blac Chyna on board.
Still, for the most part, the family is in support of Kardashian's relationship with Blac Chyna, especially as she helps him with healthy meal prepping and exercise in the wake of his Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. She seems to have had a positive impact on his depression, too, the insider notes.
"[Rob's family] think this might get him out of his funk," the source said.
