Khloe Kardashian: Is She About to Quit Reality TV?!?

Khloe Kardashian is about to be a first-time mother.

But is she also about to be a final-time reality television star?

Or something to that effect?

What we’re trying to say is that a new In Touch Weekly report suggests that Khloe is reevaluating her life and the way she spends her time, as she counts down the days until her daughter arrives.

And while it may sound extreme, one consideration Khloe is weighing is whether or not to keep having every detail of her existence captured on camera all the time.

She may very well walk away from Keeping Up with the Kardashians this year, a source tells this tabloid.

Khloe has reached the point where she’s ready to put family first,” says the insider.

Kardashian has been a full-time cast member since 2007, which is also the year she got arrested for DUI, even saying later on about this incident:

“That’s one of those times you wish you didn’t have cameras on you.”

Khloe also starred in a spinoff with husband Lamar Odom back in the day…

… and we all know how that marriage turned out, don’t we?

In other words: Khloe may have finally realized that the millions she earns each year is not worth this invasion of privacy, especially when she will soon have a tiny human being to care for.

“The show is a full-time job that involves being filmed from the first thing in the morning until late at night,” In Touch adds, continuing as follows:

“After 10 years, she’s ready for a change.”

Then there’s Tristan Thompson.

Khloe and her baby daddy have no plans to marry, but they do have plans to be together for a VERY long time.

“She’s completely fed up with doing the whole long-distance thing and wants to be by Tristan’s side in Cleveland,” writes In Touch.

Thompson, of course, plays professional basketball for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He and Khloe have been together for well over a year now, with no end in sight.

But if the end of her run on Keeping Up with the Kardashians really is up soon, you can imagine how Kris Jenner feels about this, right?

According to this same article, Jenner “is furious that Khloee wants to leave the show and has made her feelings clear to her daughter…

“Khloe has a huge fan base, and her fun personality keeps viewers tuned in. Kris is concerned that Khloe quitting the show will lead to a drop in ratings.”

The show has already been dropping in the ratings for many seasons.

The Kardashians recently signed up for an additional two years of filming, but there’s a question over just how much longer the series can really last, especially if Kendall Jenner also leaves.

So… is this really all Khloe wrote when it comes to the program?

“Right now, she is sticking to her decision,” says the In Touch nsider. “She told Kris that it’s her life and she can do what she wants with it.”

Matt Roloff Rips Little People/Big World Producers, Hints Family May Quit

Like son, like father?

About two years after Jacob Roloff walked away from Little People, Big World because he said the show was scripted and his relatives made out to be people they were not…

… Matt Roloff has echoed this sentiment.

Returning to social media after a brief hiatus late last week, the family patriarch engaged a bit with fans on Facebook.

With a new season of Little People, Big World set to (finally!) premiere on April 3, Roloff responded to a complaint on his official account that referenced his ex-wife, Amy, and how recent scenes between the two have been filled with “stress” and “tension.”

This individual said such moments were unpleasant to watch. 

And not only did Matt agree, he blamed producers for artificially creating such scenes, implying that if this continues, he and his loved ones will quit the series.

Yikes!

“I totally agree [with your assessment],” Matt responded, continuing as follows:

“We’ve been pushing the new producers to stop making our show negative and keep the family love and togetherness in the forefront.

“For some reason, these new producers/editors that come in to work…don’t know the show and want to amplify the negative…

“I’m not sure we (the Roloff family) can take that kinda of editing much longer. Errrrr.”

mr response

Whoa there!

That’s quite the statement.

We’ve been writing for several weeks that social media users often go after either Matt or Amy on a regular basis.

Even through this couple divorced way back in May of 2016 and have both happily moved on with new significant others, many fans simply can’t accept this scenario.

It’s not surprising, therefore, that producers may have picked up on this reaction and used the manufactured feud as a way to sell new episodes of the show.

In a clip from the season, for example, we see Matt and Amy arguing over family farm issues.

(You can watch the complete new season preview above.)

Amy, conversely, has also taken to Instagram in anticipation of upcoming episodes.

But she isn’t blasting anyone behind the scenes of them.

She’s expressing extreme excitement over what lies ahead.

“Woohoo! It’s here. LPBW new episodes,” Amy wrote as a caption to a photo of the Roloff farm, adding:

“What a season it will be – life being new parents, managing life after divorce and relationships, Farm, learning to work together and always a family.

“Yep there’ll be some moments but always in telling a story. So hope you’ll be watching NEW episodes of #LPBW, premiering on @TLC Tuesday, April 3rd at 9/8c!

“You can catch up on past seasons now on TLC.com/LPBW! You’re awesome! Thanks for all the years of support and encouragement. Couldn’t do this without you.”

It is expected that these new episodes will focus primarily on Zach and Tori Roloff raising son Jackson, along with Audrey and Jeremy Roloff preparing to welcome daughter Ember, who arrived in September.

But Amy does also cite “life after divorce” and “relationships” in her own tease for the show.

She has been dating Chris Marek for about a year now and Matt has been with Caryn Chandler, the former farm manager.

For those unfamiliar with Jacob’s rant from July of 2016, Matt and Amy’s youngest son said at the time that he had enough of filming Little People, Big World.

He said he simply could not handle the phoniness.

“For the sake of ‘the episode’ and ratings I’ve seen a lot of STORYLINES drawn up (loosely) about our lives,” he said that summer.

Jacob continued, holding nothing back:

“And when I was standing here, behind the scenes and watching it from an outside perspective I just couldn’t stop laughing.

“Laughing at how hard the producers have to try to get us to follow the talking points, and at how ridiculous the talking points are.

“The family that is filmed is not my family.

“They are the Roloff Characters and I have scarcely anything in common with them, nor do I want to be a character myself.”

According to Matt, not much has changed.

But will he and others actually follow Jacob’s lead and leave the show?

Stay tuned to find out.

Chip and Joanna Gaines: Did They Quit Over a Bad Contract?

Fans were shocked to learn that Fixer Upper would be ending after only 5 seasons

Rumors flew — maybe it’s because their family is still growing. Maybe it’s because they wanted to work on their alleged marital troubles.

But now there’s a report that might finally make all of this make sense … despite the Gainses fervent denials.

There’s going out on a high note, and then there’s canceling your show at its height of popularity.

What gives?

Well, Joanna Gaines is pregnant with her fifth child. That’s a big deal for any couple on just about any show.

But if they were fine doing a show with four kids, then five wouldn’t hurt, right? That would just be more Gaines family for fans to love.

Then there’s the theory that they’re having marital problems. Even Chip Gaines admits that their relationship has imperfections.

But they say that they aren’t splitting. So why are they saying “no” to success?

They say that every safety rule, every regulation, every warning sign, and every contract is written based on history. On things that went wrong for one party or another.

It sounds like that extends to TV contracts, as well, because Page Six reports that Chip and Joanna are holding out for a better contract deal.

“Many years ago, when Scripps, which also owns Food Network, signed Rachael Ray, they didn’t think about Rachael starting a magazine, launching product lines, getting endorsement deals, and her books selling millions of copies.”

This comes from an HGTV Network insider, folks.

“And so while Food Network turned Rachael Ray into a star, she made tens of millions and Scripps got none of it.”

Some would argue that this is fair. That the network gets commercial revenue from the show itself, while Rachael Ray’s other projects are her own.

Others would say that, by giving her a platform, the network deserves a piece of the pie.

“After Rachael, they made sure no talent deal would ever put them in that situation again.”

“Since the Gaineses were relatively unknown when they started, they signed the general Scripps talent contract….”

Time and time again, we’ve heard of unknown people with star potential signing contracts that they would later come to regret.

“The talent can’t do anything without their approval — any appearance, any publicity, any endorsement, any product — you have to ask them for permission.”

That … sounds like hell.

“It is awful. And on top of that, Scripps takes a big percentage of everything you make — books, appearances, endorsements, products. If you make money, they take most of the money….”

They must feel like they’re trapped. Household names, but being paid a pittance of what many would consider them worth.

“So [Chip and Joanna] are using this end of their contract as a total renegotiation to get the deal they really want: more money, less work, more control.”

Apparently, the Gaineses believe that the odds are in their favor for one very good reason.

“The timing of Discovery buying Scripps worked well in their favor.”

Discovery knows the value of a reality series.

“With Discovery hopefully now about to own Scripps, they are rolling the dice thinking the new owners will come running after them and give them the deal they really want.”

It is a gamble, but perhaps it will pay off.

And if not, well, there are reports that the couple’s been meeting with other networks to pitch a new show.

Still (as you can see in the video above), the Gaineses have denied that this is about money.

They’re currently worth about $ 8 million each, but they suggested that they wouldn’t continue at this point, even if offered a ludicrous offer.

But … we have to consider that this could be their branding talking.

Some people find discussing money to be “vulgar,” and so if they were to admit: “Hey, we’re holding out for more money! Our millions aren’t enough!” it might hurt their brand.

For the sake of their fans, let’s hope that whatever it takes to get them back on TV happens.

Lydia McLaughlin: I Quit The Real Housewives of Orange County! Again!

Lydia McLaughlin has an announcement to make.

And it’s an announcement you may have heard her make before.

The Real Housewives of Orange County cast member took to her official blog on Friday and confirmed that she will no longer be a Real Housewives of Orange County cast member

“RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time,” McLaughlin wrote online, adding:

“I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity.

“After a family vote, it was unanimous that I should take a break. Sometimes the people who love us the most see things even we don’t see.

“I trust my path and I’m excited for what the future holds.”

Indeed, McLaughlin initially joined this Bravo franchise in season 8.

She departed the cable network hit just before season 9, yet returned last year as a full-time cast member for season 12.

Earlier this year, it was also reported that Meghan King Edmonds would not return to Orange County for next season.

She swears this was her decision.

And McLaughlin insists the same.

“Bravo and Evolution have been amazing to me and I have made great friendships,” she continued on her blog, expounding:

“I treasure all my fans and appreciate all the love and support.

“I’ve been honored to be a source of entertainment and inspiration to all of you and I hope to continue spreading light and love.

“Being a full time mom to THREE little boys, publisher of NOBLEMAN Magazine, blogger, jewelry designer, author, and wife, I have a lot going on!

“I will continue to share my life and faith and use this platform to be a lightworker.”

In other words: we haven’t heard the last from Lydia McLaughlin.

We’ve just seen the last of her on Bravo.

McLaughlin and her husband, Doug, have three kids:

  1. Stirling, 8.
  2. Maverick, 6.
  3. Roman, 2.

These children, Doug and even McLaughlin’s mother have been featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County at various points.

We don’t know just when when season 13 will air, but it’s clear the cast will look a bit different whenever that date arrives.

Any suggestions for women who should fill these two open slots?

Blake Shelton May Quit The Voice and Producers Won’t Miss Him!

The Voice has done a lot for Blake Shelton over the past 8 years. It’s how he and Gwen Stefani met. It’s how people who aren’t big Country fans know who he is. It’s probably how he somehow ended up “Sexiest Man Alive.”

Despite all of that, Blake is reportedly considering quitting the show that has given him so much — including tens of millions of dollars.

Surprisingly, it sounds like producers wouldn’t mind that at all. And it may all come down to Blake Shelton’s behavior when the cameras aren’t rolling.

Blake Shelton has been making headlines since he first hooked up with Gwen Stefani a few years ago.

Their runaway romance began after Gwen shared her story of being cheated on with her costars — she wanted to tell her fellow judges what was going on in her life before they heard speculation in tabloids.

Blake came forward, telling Gwen that he’d just gone through something similar in his own life.

The two of them bonded over that. And then, at some point, they boned. (There have even been reports that Blake Shelton is trying to impregnate Gwen Stefani)

So, money and visibility and alleged sexiness aside, it’s safe to say that The Voice has changed Blake Shelton’s life in a really positive way.

RadarOnline reports that Blake Shelton may walk away from The Voice.

“Blake has made tens of millions of dollars on The Voice and he has gotten insane exposure for his music.”

It’s true. If you’re not a Country fan, you had probably never heard of him before he went on The Voice, if then.

A lot of people never noticed that he existed until he started dating Gwen Stefani.

“But the money and fame have changed Blake.”

It sounds like he’s turned into a real diva when the cameras aren’t rolling.

“He is a cry baby if he doesn’t get his own way and he barks orders at people.”

Oh gosh. That sounds like an unpleasant way to behave.

That source has more to say, which we’ll get to in a moment.

But we should mention that some people’s first reaction will be that “diva behavior” doesn’t really match Blake Shelton’s image.

Or rather that it doesn’t really match Country Music’s image.

The key word there is image. Successful stars are great at managing their images; it is a key to success.

Blake Shelton is a guy who allegedly cheated just as much as Miranda Lambert, but it’s Miranda’s life that was ruined as the Country community sided with him during their split.

So it’s probably fair to say that Blake knows how to portray himself one way to the public and another in private.

Ultimately, Blake Shelton’s decision on whether or not to depart may rest on the shoulders of Adam Levine, who is also considering quitting.

The reason is that Adam’s wife Behati Prinsloo is pregnant with baby #2, and he may want to spend more time with his family.

“If Adam quits, Blake is definitely walking out behind him.”

Interesting. We wonder if Blake would feel insecure about remaining behind if Adam leaves. Certainly, we’ve never heard that there’s any love lost between the two.

Also interesting is that apparently the show itself wouldn’t mind.

“And producers are okay with that.”

For good reason:

“After eight years of Blake and Adam doing this, everyone is just ready for a change.”

It’s hard to parse stories about someone allegedly considering quitting; that could come from offhand remarks, after all.

But though new judges could breathe new life into The Voice, we have to wonder if the change could risk losing them viewers.

After all, despite the shock that most people felt when they saw Blake Shelton absurdly selected as the Sexiest Man Alive, some people clearly feel that way.

And maybe a lot of those people make up The Voice‘s core demographic of viewers.

“If Adam quits, Blake is definitely walking out behind him.”

“And producers are okay with that.”

“After eight years of Blake and Adam doing this, everyone is just ready for a change.”

Siggy Flicker: I Quit The Real Housewives of New Jersey!

Siggy Flicker has sent a couple messages to The Real Housewives of New Jersey:

One would be this:

See ya! Wouldn’t wanna be ya!

And the other would be this:

Peace out, mother effers!

What we’re trying to say it this:

Flicker has quit the Bravo reality hit after just two seasons as a regular cast member.

After joining the series in 2015, Flicker has struggled to catch on with viewers, while also feuding endless with various colleagues.

Of late, for example, the irritating 50-year old got into it with Margaret Josephs after the women went to Milan … and Josephs accused Flicker of being “anti-Semitic” due to a comment about Adolf Hitler.

Yeah, Awkward.

“Looking back at the show I truly wanted to make a difference for Jersey and in Jersey and I realized that I had too many obstacles working against me and I couldn’t do it,” Flicker told Us Weekly, pretty hilariously, upon announcing her decision to leave.

(We’re just saying: if you want to make a difference for Jersey and in Jersey, appearing on this reality show isn’t really the way to do it.)

Added Flicker:

“I feel like I lost the battle but I won the war because at the end of the day, everyone’s goal should be … to be happy.

“And there is nothing more that I love than myself, my husband and my family too much for them to be unhappy and for me to be unhappy.”

Along those lines, Flicker wrote the following as a caption to the image below:

Celebrate life. Celebrate love. Your life. Your rules. Surround yourself with the best of the best & you will flourish every single day! #love

Meanwhile, a production insider tells the aforementioned tabloid that Flicker thinks she received a rough edit this season and felt “betrayed” by production.

“There’s not a chance she’ll go back. She feels liberated,” the source added.

Of course, there are always two sides.

And the opposite side says Flicker was tough to work with and that her future on the series would have been bleak even if she had not arrived at this decision to walk away.

“She was not going to be asked back,” alleges this source.

“Fan reaction about her has been very negative, especially with what she has posted on social media.”

What do you think?

Will you still watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online or on TV, even with Siggy Flicker?

Elsewhere, the now FORMER star said the following to Bravo’s The Daily Dish:

“After much reflection and Bravo’s support, I have decided that this will be my last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.

“I am grateful to the network for allowing me to be part of this successful franchise and wish only the best for Teresa [Giudice], Melissa [Gorga], Dolores, Danielle [Staub] and Margaret.

“At this time, I want to focus on my beautiful family, my growing business and some exciting new projects.”

Derick Dillard Lashes Out at Fans: I QUIT Counting On & So Did My Wife!

The rapid unraveling of Derick Dillard continued yesterday, as Jill Duggar’s husband posted a series of irate tweets, in which he  explained that parting ways with TLC was his decision, not the network’s.

It was previously reported that Derick had been fired from Counting On due to his controversial comments toward transgender teen and fellow TLC reality star Jazz Jennings.

Now, Dillard says he was not fired, but in fact quit the show due to differences of opinion.

“Unbelievable what’s considered newsworthy these days, but then again this is how I heard I was ‘fired,’” Dillard wrote in response to a Fox News tweet about his firing.

“For the record, I was never fired. I just felt it was best for my family to cut ties months ago, as we are heading in a different direction.”

Derick went on to claim that he “never worked” for TLC, which seems to be his way of saying that he was never under contract with the network.

“Yes, I’m no longer doing [the show], but nowhere did they say that I was fired,” Derick wrote. “Big difference. You can’t be fired from somewhere you never worked.”

“That’s what’s so funny. I was fake fired from my fake job,” he added.

“PR must be their justification. See it is funny, you’re laughing too lol.”

Despite his claim that he left the network by choice and was never really employed there, Derick clearly feels some bitterness toward TLC.

It’s not the first time Dillard has claimed that he quit, but it is the first time that he revealed his wife, Jill, will no longer be appearing on Counting On.

When a fan asked Derick, “So you guys aren’t on the show anymore?” the 28-year-old former accountant quickly replied, “Correct.”

So it seems viewers may have seen the last of fan favorite Jill.

Naturally, the revelation that the Dillards will be stepping away from the spotlight has further fueled rumors that Derick was caught cheating on Jill, but it seems unlikely that we’ll ever receive any sort of confirmation on that.

The fact that she’ll no longer be appearing on television may help explain some recent changes in Jill’s appearance.

Jill’s been sporting a nose piercing, henna tattoos, and other non-Duggar-approved fashion statements.

Perhaps life away from the glare of the spotlight offers some advantages, after all.

Watch Counting On online for more from Jill and Derick’s controversial marriage.

Derick Dillard: I Wasn’t Fired from Counting On, I QUIT!

Derick Dillard sure does love being the worst, right?

He’s always been … well, he’s never been that great, but for the past few months, he’s really been trying to be just awful.

For some reason, back in August he decided to publicly attack Jazz Jennings, a teenage girl who also has a show on the TLC network.

He did this because Jazz is transgender, and he felt (and still feels, we’re sure) that he had the ability and the right to announce to the world that being transgender is not a real thing.

“What an oxymoron… a ‘reality’ show which follows a non-reality,” he tweeted. “‘Transgender’ is a myth. Gender is not fluid; it’s ordained by God.”

Or maybe Jazz knows herself better than Derick knows her, could that be possible?

When he started getting some backlash for his dumb remark, he doubled down on his ignorance, writing “I want to be clear. I have nothing against him. I only have issues with the words and definitions being propagated here.”

Except Jazz isn’t a “him,” she’s a “her,” and if he really wanted to take issue with “words and definitions,” perhaps he shouldn’t have called a sweet girl he doesn’t even know “a non-reality.”

A few days after that, Derick seemed to reference the situation yet again, tweeting “It seems the truth is relative these days. So glad my God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! His word is always perfect! #Hebrews13.”

Ugh.

Since then, he’s been retweeting transphobic quotes, he’s been supporting a boycott of Target because of their policy of letting transgender people use the correct bathrooms.

And last month, he went after Jazz AGAIN, tweeting “I pity Jazz, 4 those who take advantage of him in order 2 promote their agenda, including the parents who allow these kinds of decisions to be made by a child.”

“It’s sad that ppl would use a juvenile this way. Again, nothing against him, just unfortunate what’s on tv these days.”

His obsession with Jazz is so bizarre, and given that she is a child, it’s extra inappropriate.

And considering the fact that she’s a child who also happens to technically be a co-worker of his?

It’s no wonder TLC kicked him to the curb.

Shortly after that last tirade against Jazz, TLC tweeted from their official account that “We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months. The network has no plans to feature him in the future.”

“We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network. TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.”

So that seems pretty clear, right? TLC obviously didn’t appreciate Derick’s words, and so the Dillards are gone from our televisions.

And not a moment too soon!

A few days after that, Derick addressed the issue, again on Twitter. He wrote “Thank you to all those who have supported us and given us so many words of encouragement recently. God bless you all!”

But this weekend, he’s been sharing bit of a different view.

For some reason, he decided to tweet a link to a story that was published last month — one about his firing.

“Unbelievable what’s considered newsworthy these days, but then again, this is how I first heard that I was ‘fired,'” he wrote.

“For the record, I was never fired. I just felt it best for my family to cut ties months ago, as we are heading in a different direction.”

Oh, OK. Sure.

Someone replied, mocking him for thinking that people would actually believe that he quit the show that surely paid him a nice salary for doing next to nothing.

“Think again,” Derick responded. “I only left my accounting job because I was offered a missions job with SOS. And yes, we were commissioned missionaries, endorsed by our church.”

“Please be careful where you get your information. There’s a lot of garbage out there, that has no fiber of truth.”

Is he trying to say that TLC didn’t pay him for appearing on Counting On? That he’s been living as a humble missionary all these years, just getting by with his church’s endorsement?

Not even a word of thanks towards all those poor fans who have donated money to him?

We’d ask this guy to get it together, but let’s be real, there’s really no hope left for that, is there?
