Among the Kardasian sisters, Khloe Kardashian always seems like the most easy-going of the crew. But after 10 years on the air, even this Keeping Up with the Kardashian sibling has some regrets about just what has made the final cut of their E! series. To commemorate a decade on the air, Kardashian recently sat down with Glamour and broke down some of the show’s highs… and lows.
“Now our lives have evolved. We film six days a week, 12 to 18 hours a day, every single day. When you compile that much footage into 13 or 14 44-minute episodes, you can find a lot of drama. Not every episode is juicy to us; it’s only juicy to the audience. Things like Kim’s robbery or Caitlyn’s transition? That’s the kind of stuff we wish we had never filmed,” she shared. “We aren’t ever like, ‘Oooh! Let’s do this for season nine.’ This is our life, and these are the things that happen. And it’s funny—when we decide not to shoot things, people feel slighted. But when we film too much, they’re like, “’Oh, you never should have filmed that.’ It’s a catch- 22.”
Back in Season 3, viewers were also with Kardashian as she turned herself into jail following a 2007 DUI arrest (she was only behind bars for less than a handful of hours). She recalled, “That’s one of those times you wish you didn’t have cameras on you. It was more embarrassing than anything else. I mean, I could have hurt or killed someone. But, you know, that happened. And I dealt with it. And it will never happen again.”
While Kardashian did refer to some of the heavier moments the family has let viewers in on through the years, she also looked back on the way the sisters used to sound and it kind of perplexes her.
“After the first six episodes aired, we started to get a little more foot traffic at our stores, but it wasn’t a tourist attraction or anything. I’d still go to the Fantastic Sams across the street from my store a few times a week to get a blow-dry for $25. I did my own makeup. Occasionally I’ll catch an old episode and notice how we all talked in these baby voices. It’s crazy if you listen to it now,” she said. “I think maybe we did it because we were nervous.”
