Big news outta Calabasas (just change the spelling to Kalabasas, already)! Sock icon Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s only male spawn, is returning to Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Apart from the odd cameo, he hasn’t appeared regularly since 2017. 33-year-old Rob’s last couple of seasons on the show followed his weight gain, depression, and shitty relationship with Blac Chyna, which, uh, hasn’t got any less shitty.
A slimmer Rob was recently spotted at sister Khloe Karadashian’s birthday party of horrors. I guess he’s finally lost enough fat for Pimp Mama Kris to let him back on her show. Also, Kourtney Kardashian left an open spot after she realized appearing on reality TV miiiiiiiight be toxic.
Khloe shared this very important news on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up (via Page Six):
“My brother’s coming back around. He’s feeling more confident and comfortable,” Khloé said on Thursday. “I think he just, you know, started a whole new season.”
Does she mean a new season of the show, or a new season of his *life*? Like when moms go through menopause and do an Eat, Pray, Love Eurotrip?
It’s good that Rob is doing well, but, as a self-proclaimed (completely unqualified) psychology expert, I must ask: Is going back on that show a smart mental health move? Rob’s downwards spiral was on the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians I watched (after which I discovered The Real Housewives; the human brain can only process so much trash at once), and the family completely mishandled Rob’s weight gain. They acted like he’d committed some sort of war crime. I know, it’s shocking. The Kardashians are obsessed with appearances.
So that means Rob will take Kourtney’s place at the Koven’s salad-eating table. Expect Kim and Khloe to eat their salads even slower at that awkward moment when Rob goes to add a little dressing to his salad and Kris uses her devil tail to knock it right out of his hand.
