Kim Kardashian is leaving "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." In an interview with DuJour Magazine, the pregnant reality star revealed she won't be signing on for any more of the family's E! reality show after its ninth season.
"I think there's always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life ... My boyfriend [Kanye West] has taught me a lot about privacy ... I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything. I’m shifting my priorities," Kardashian told DuJour.
Kim's departure won't be coming anytime soon, though. The Kardashian family signed a lucrative three-year contract extension with E! in April of 2012. Season 8 of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" is scheduled to premiere in the summer of 2013, while the spinoff "Kourtney And Kim Take Miami" is currently in the midst of its third season.
Kim has previously said that her baby would not be appearing on the family reality show. In January, she told E! News, "For me I will definitely enjoy my privacy and not have my child on TV."
UPDATE: Kim Kardashian clarified her comments about leaving "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" in a statement on Celebuzz, and said she will stay on through "at least Season 10."
"I know that many of you have read the Dujour Magazine interview I just did. In the article, I was asked about continuing on with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10. The show remains to be my number 1 priority and it’s a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I’m looking forward to the new season and beyond. The fact is that I have many goals that I still need to reach and accomplish and I (like so many of you) don’t know where my life will be in the next couple of years, but I’m looking forward to continuing this journey."
