Kim Kardashian is Kwitting Reality TV

Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Perhaps you, like the rest of the world, assumed that Kim Kardashian would be on television until the day she died. You figured she'd give birth on camera vagina-first, breastfeed on camera nipples-out, and live out the rest of her days with a camera permanently implanted up her asshole.

But YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN WRONG if you believed that, because now, the gates of hell are encrusted in icicles and the lady they call Kim has announced that she'll be leaving "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after its ninth season.

The starlet revealed her plans to exit the art form that is reality TV to the magazine DuJour. Writer Alyssa Giacobbe notes:

After season 9, she says, she’s done. But, as always, she makes no apologies—or promises. Today, she says season 9 will be the last, but a branding superstar like Kardashian doesn’t ensure longevity by being inflexible.

So, yes, it's possible that she'll stay on for more. But this is the klosest we've kome to seeing Kim kwit TV, and whether it's a ploy for PR or a true decision, she's got our attention. Again. Dammit.
