Kim Kardashian might have quashed rumors claiming she won't be returning for another season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," but don't expect Kanye West to make an appearance.
RadarOnline.com reports that West doesn't want to appear on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" because it would be bad for his image. He has allegedly only agreed to make a few cameo appearances in Season 8.
“He has made several brief appearances on the Kardashian reality shows, but wants nothing to do with future filming," a source told RadarOnline. “Kanye’s team believes it’s bad for his image and brand to appear on a reality show because it makes him look cheap. And, Kim isn’t pushing the issue at all as she knows Kanye won’t bend on it.”
The report comes on the heels of talk that Season 9 of the E! reality series will be Kardashian's last.
Gossip first flared after the publication of Kardashian's interview with DuJour magazine in which she reveals that West "has taught [her] a lot about privacy."
"I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything," she said. "I’m shifting my priorities."
The reality starlet later took to her blog to clarify that this isn't the end.
"I’m looking forward to the new season and beyond," she wrote.
But Hollywood Life claims Kardashian really does hope to leave and Kris Jenner is blaming West.
“In spite of what Kim wrote today, she does want to quit the show, [and] Kris is flipping out,” a source told Hollywood Life. “[Kris] thinks the show will be nothing without Kim, and she is pissed at Kanye [West] for steering Kim towards quitting. It is a really screwed up situation over there right now."
Season 8 of E! Network's "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is set to premiere in the summer of 2013.

Kris Jenner On "Cougar Town"
If there's one Kardashian that can hold her own with the wine-loving ladies of "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/cougar-town/3560220" target="_hplink">Cougar Town</a>," it's the matriarch of the first family of reality TV, Kris Jenner. On "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/keeping-up-with-the-kardashians/185738" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>," you can usually find Kris behind the bar of her Calabasas mansion, so we think that she would have no problem keeping up with Jules and the Cul de Sac crew. Hold your "Big Joe" with pride, Kris!
Bruce Jenner on "Grey's Anatomy"
Okay, so Bruce Jenner's ill-advised facelift is pretty well-documented at this point. In Season 2 of "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/keeping-up-with-the-kardashians/185738" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>," the former athlete went under the knife again to correct his facelift-gone-wrong. But what if Mark Sloan was the one holding the knife? In an effort to bring awareness to his ill-advised procedure, Bruce Jenner would be the perfect plastics patient for McSteamy to fix on "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/greys-anatomy/185019" target="_hplink">Grey's Anatomy</a>."
Kourtney Kardashian On "Dexter"
Out of all of the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney is probably the most likely to be a serial killer on the side. She's pretty much the female equivalent of Michael C. Hall's emotionless "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/dexter/185267" target="_hplink">Dexter</a>," so it would make perfect sense for her to guest star as his female counterpart. Unfortunately, for Kourtney, there's isn't enough room for two serial killers on this Showtime show, so we think this Kardashian would end up on Dexter's table.
Scott Disick On "Revenge"
Scott Disick is "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/tag/revenge/" target="_hplink">Revenge</a>." He's from the elite Long Island social scene, participates in every absurd male fashion trend and won't leave his house without a pocket square. He could totally guest star as Nolan's brother.
Khloe Kardashian On "The Game"
This one is a no-brainer. BET's "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/game/185241" target="_hplink">The Game</a>" is about a young woman who decides to put her pending career plans on hold because of the rising success of her star athlete boyfriend. If we didn't tell you that the main character's name is Melanie, you would probably think we are talking about Khloe.
Rob Kardashian On "How I Met Your Mother"
For a show that cast <a href="http://www.aoltv.com/2008/03/10/britney-spears-to-guest-on-how-i-met-your-mother/" target="_hplink">Britney Spears as a saucy receptionist</a> and <a href="http://www.aoltv.com/2011/11/01/katie-holmes-is-slutty-pumpkin-how-i-met-your-mother-video/" target="_hplink">Katie Holmes as a slutty pumpkin</a>, they can surely find room for a Kardashian. We couldn't think of a better role for Rob than Robin's new boyfriend on "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/how-i-met-your-mother/185124" target="_hplink">How I Met Your Mother</a>." She loves the bro type, so Rob would be perfect, and it's a great way to get her away from Kevin.
Kendall Jenner On "Pretty Little Liars"
Kendall would fit right in at Rosewood High. She's pretty, has great fashion sense and probably has a secret or two up her sleeve. As "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/2011/12/13/pretty-little-liars-who-is-a/" target="_hplink">Pretty Little Liars</a>" fans know, Jackie is out to make Aria's life miserable, but the one place she can't get her is at school -- that is, until her little sister (ender Kendall) enrolls at Rosewood High. Not only does Kendall look like Jackie, but she could totally play the bitchy little sister. After all, we've seen her naughty side on "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/keeping-up-with-the-kardashians/185738" target="_hplink">Keeping Up With the Kardashians</a>" more than a few times.
Kylie Jenner On "Glee"
It must be hard being Kylie Jenner. Your famous half-sisters all have their own reality shows, while your pretty older sister is not only taking the modeling business by storm, but also has her own <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/01/kendall-jenner-getting-sweet-sixteen-tv-special_n_1069450.html" target="_hplink">Sweet 16 special on E!</a> So, naturally, Kylie "Misunderstood" Jenner would be the perfect addition to Fox's "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/glee/3496658" target="_hplink">Glee</a>." We know that Kylie is handy with a camera, so she could guest star as Jacob Ben Israel's production assistant. After all, he's going to need some help filming the New Directions on their way to Nationals.
Mason Dash Disick On "Modern Family"
The idea of Mason on "Modern Family" is almost too much adorableness to handle. Cameron and Mitchell want to adopt another baby, and Lily could definitely use a new playmate, so who could be cuter than baby Mason? He's already a scene-stealer in "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," and let's be honest: Does anyone like that new Lily anyway?
