Well, they couldn’t snag Kanye so they may as well add more estranged family members to the mix. Brody Jenner was confirmed yesterday, March 4, as the newest “cast” member of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. We find it a bit odd that Brody would have to be added to the cast for a reality show about his extended family, but those Kardashians have never played by conventional rules.
The Hill’s heartthrob and Bromance star is slated to appear in a number of episodes for KUWTK’s 8th season. Brody’s rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Brody “is joining the show but may not be in every episode. It depends on the storyline.” ARE YOU SAYING REALITY TELEVISION IS SCRIPTED? Say it ain’t so.
While the reality of reality television is that some “stories” are not exactly real, we’re excited to see how Brody will be integrated into the show. His brother Brandon Jenner has recently been making more and more appearances on both KUWTK and Kim and Kourtney Take Miami, so one more Jenner added to the brood should make for an interesting mix.
And we aren’t the only ones excited, Khloe Kardashian blogged about the news explaining how thrilled she is to be expanding the cast.
“I’m always excited for each new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but I’m especially excited for this upcoming season because you’re going to be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian/Jenner clan! My stepbrothers, Brody and Brandon, and Brandon’s wife Leah are going to be on the show much more, which means an even closer look into the inner-workings of my crazy, wonderful family! Get ready people!”
Brody has already been seen filming scenes with his very pregnant step sister Kim Kardashian while shopping together at Barney’s. Recently Kim has voiced doubts about continuing the show after the birth of her baby. Perhaps adding more Jenners is the producers way of taking focus off Kim, and making way for her exit.
