It is possible that no one has ever hated anything more than Rob Kardashian hates having his own reality show, which is a shame, because Kris Jenner, his “momager,” is not about to let him quit. Kardashian’s new reality show, Rob and Chyna, premieres Sept. 11 on E! and follows Kardashian and Blac Chyna as they get ready to welcome their first child.
Kardashian has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians before, but he’s by no means been as prominent a personality as, say, his sisters or his mother. According to sources, he’s been so miserable shooting Rob and Chyna that he’s walked off the set, locked himself in his room and threatened to quit. While Kardashian has apparently decided that being the focus of a reality show isn’t for him, Jenner decided the best course of action to get him back on board was to threaten to sue him. Jenner: “Resume shooting, or else you’ll lose everything, including this house I bought you.”
That’s one way to go about it, and it apparently worked, because Kardashian is now back to filming, although it seems safe to say he doesn’t feel awesome about it. He’s always been the quieter of the Kardashians, keeping things about his personal life on the down-low, which is one reason the news that he and Blac Chyna were not only a couple but expecting a child together was such a big deal. (Also because he’s a Kardashian, and his family wasn’t exactly happy about it.) He’s also been open about taking on his sisters and mother when they criticize his life and his decisions. If you’re looking for a solid way to waste time, go back into the KUWTK lexicon, and watch the episodes where he fights with Kim — they are essentially pure gold. In the meantime, though, check out Kardashian and Blac Chyna on their new show, in which other Kardashians and Jenners will inevitably make appearances.
