Let’s pour out a little liquor for Kocktails with Khloé and put the final lid on the failed Kardashian talk show empire.
After 14 episodes, Khloé’s short-lived hour of booze is headed to that great big talk show in the sky, where a randomly chosen mix of dead people will sit around, drink and play F-Marry-Kill.
For the final episode on Wednesday night, Kim, Kanye, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen joined Khloe to ramble about pregnancies, sympathy pains and famous people things. “Yay, Kim, you finally made it on Kocktails with Khloé!” Khloe screams at the top show, almost morbidly, considering this is the end.
Kim, for her part, claims to have watched every episode. “I was so excited when I saw that it really looked like your house...I feel like The Real World,” says Kim, adding that she was dying to audition for that show when she was 11. Kim also says Kanye has mentioned having another kid “every single day lately for the past 10 days.” (Imagine Kanye turning to Kim in the bed every day and whispering, “I want another one...”)
Anyway, it’s unlikely because Kim is back on birth control. “It would be a really dangerous environment for me if I were to get pregnant again,” she says. There were a few good sound bites, as in the clip above, when Kim talks about North West being jealous of her brother Saint. “You’ll die when I tell you what she did. First of all, she would like, cry so much and try to pull him off of me” while breastfeeding, says Kim.
But altogether, it’s easy to see why this show didn’t capture an audience despite it having so much potential. An hour of compelling conversation, even among these friends, is tough to maintain visually. Here’s Kanye talking about where he got his confidence from.
For the rest of the show, Kanye eats mac and cheese while Khloe asks him who Pablo is in The Life of Pablo. John and Chrissy say they want to have more kids. Khloe says, “If you date one of us, I feel like you date us all.” John says he was eating so badly that his doctor told him he had “the heart of a 50-year-old.”
John says he doesn’t like to talk on the phone, only texts. Kanye jokes that his “bitch so bad” that he was OK living with Kris Jenner. “Y’all go down from a strong 12 down to about a 6 and I ain’t staying in Rob’s room,” says Ye. Chrissy says tweeting is not worth the backlash and clickbait.
They all talk about what it’s like to be famous, what it’s like to be Kim, what it’s like to be pregnant, and what it’s like to be Kanye. This was an appropriately OK farewell and it’s all over now. I’m going to listen to “Little Red Corvette.”
