Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on for 10 years and 13 seasons.
Kim Kardashian recently appeared on The View and opened up about how the show is edited. And how much they manipulate storylines to influence public opinion (for example, adding things in or taking them out to appear sympathetic).
Kim insists: “There’s never been anything we’ve taken out” from a finished episode (after it’s edited but before it airs, presumably).
“By the time the show would air, the story would already get out in the media and it’s totally twisted,” Kim explains of how the stories play out. “So it’s nice to show it our way.”
How does Kim deal with the amount of negativity from being in the public eye?
She explains: “I have thick skin and this isn’t for everyone.”
“I can see why people get hurt and are bothered by it,” she continues. Adding, “I do break down at times!”
“I’m just like it’s not okay for people to say these awful things,” she adds of trolls on social media. “For people to have all this keyboard courage to say the craziest things about you is okay and it’s not okay.”
For example, some speculated that Kim staged being robbed at gunpoint for ratings. She denies it.
Adding: “That was something that was why I was like, ‘Okay, I need to take a step back. I need to take a step back from social media, from opinions. I don’t care, the truth will come out. I’m home with my babies. I’m safe.’”
Fans also mocked her beach body, prompting Kim to get back into the gym.
“I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were photoshopping them and sharpening them,” recalled Kim. “I was already not feeling myself and people were sharpening then and making them way worse. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m going to get it together.’”
