Self-evidently, the shows aren't comprised of edited footage from anyone's real day to day life. If you're going to make cheap shows, it must be a great deal cheaper to write scenes, hand out scripts, and shoot for a few hours a week, rather than to cross-fingers that something comprehensible or compelling will accidentally fall out from a film crew following this narcissistic and uninteresting bunch for 24 hours a day.
No surprise that a producer of one of the shows has admitted, in writing, for a court, that there is nothing real about the Kardashian franchise. Good thing. Can't believe it took this long. Unlikely this admission will finally put an end to this rubbish though, or save the empty souls of those who watch the shows.
For too many people, hyper-reality is still more interesting than real life. Not edifying, but there it is.
The producer on Keeping Up With the Kardashians says scenes were "scripted, reshot or edited" to make Kris Humphries look bad.Kim Kardashian faked divorce scene: producer ... and the proposal scene, and every other scene
Russel Jay submitted a legal deposition for the divorce trial, which has been obtained by Life & Style magazine.
In the 165-page official document, the TV show's producer says that Kim Kardashian was well aware of Humphries' "surprise" proposal.
Apparently she demanded the proposal scene be shot more than once because, as the publication reports, "she didn't like how her face looked in the first take".
The crewmember also claims that at least a couple of scenes "were scripted, reshot or edited" to vilify Humphries following Kardashian's decision to divorce the athlete.
According to the publication, Jay states that Kardashian actually filmed the scene where she reveals to her mother Kris Jenner she was having trouble in her marriage months after filing for divorce.
