In news certain to brighten my day, professional leech Kim Kardashian stated in a recent interview with Du Jour magazine that the upcoming ninth (!) season of E!'s "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" will be her last.
"When you live your life so publicly, like on a reality show, people assume that they know every side of you already. But they always want more," said Kardashian. "Doing a TV show with your family, it's really hard to hide or be guarded," Kim continues. "Besides, we don't want to film a show if we can't be who we are, because that's just too much work."
Kardashian stated that impending motherhood and her growing relationship with Kanye West has led to a reevaluation of her life's direction. "I think there's always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life," she explained. "It's all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again. I'm realizing that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you're actually living it, it could be completely different."
She continued, "My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I'm ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I'm realizing everyone doesn't need to know everything. I'm shifting my priorities."
Kudos to notorious headline grabber for rolling her private life back into, you know, privacy. In other news, SWEET JESUS that horrid "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" show has been on for FIVE YEARS. Two years longer than "Arrested Development." Four years longer than "Freaks & Geeks."
