It’s no secret that Keeping Up With The Kardashians is heavily scripted and staged. We’ve all come to terms with that, it’s water under the bridge.
What some of us may not have known is that major plot lines, including Kris Humphries’ proposal to Kim Kardashian were recreated for one reason or another.
Celebrity author Ian Halperin is set to publish a tell-all about the famously infamous family, and judging from the excerpts shared on Radar Online, the book will be a doozie.
On the show’s first season in 2007, Khloe Kardashian was arrested for a DUI after partying at then-popular West Hollywood club Area with her sisters.
Cameras showed Kardashian being pulled over, questioned and then handcuffed by a police. In her party outfit 🙁
According to Halperin, Kardashian’s DUI was real…but it happened in March 2007, months before filming even began.
“It is entertaining and dramatic TV, except that Khloe was busted for DUI in March, before Keeping Up with the Kardashians even got the green light,” Halperin revealed.
“It was a harbinger of things to come, and would add fuel for critics who assert that just about everything about the show is scripted.”
As I mentioned earlier, poor Humphries was also the victim of several takes. When he proposed to Kim after just five months of dating, he had to do it over because his bride-to-be wasn’t happy with how she looked.
The show’s executive producer, Russell Jay had to give a court deposition during Humphries and Kardashian’s divorce proceedings in which he described the proposal scene.
“I think she had a bad reaction or something and she was embarrassed,” Jay said. “So she said ‘Can we just, like, have me come back in one more time and be, like, really surprised?'”
