KRIS Jenner is having a hard time accepting the end of her family’s long-running reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The 65-year-old TV personality broke down in tears during a new season 20 promo for the E! series while opening up about her feelings about it all coming to a close after 14 years.

In the new clip, Kris was having trouble coming to terms with it all while chatting with her friends Kyle Richards and Faye Resnick in Palm Springs.
Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble told the women that she has “really been down” lately, and Kris jumped in to explain: “Just ’cause it’s hard, it’s hard to think about the end.”
Faye asked the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch why they decided to end the show, to which she only revealed that it’s “very complicated with so many people.”

In further explanation, Kris added: “It is complicated and there’s all these different personalities and people and kids and grandkids and everybody and thinking, ‘What’s the right thing for everybody? And when’s the right moment?’
“It’s been incredibly challenging and incredibly hard.”
The 65-year-old continued to sob as she looked around the room at all of the crew members who have become “family” over the years.
“And they are day one, season one,” she said. “Every single thing we’ve ever done we’ve done together, whether it’s a vacation, a birth, a marriage, a divorce.”

She continued: “Everything has been so public. It’s part of our life. Like, this is our life.
“Telling the crew was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my whole life.
“We love each other so much…You don’t appreciate what’s right in front of you all the time and I appreciate you guys just for the record.”
The crew told her that they loved her right back.
Kris said the decision to end KUWTK wasn’t made by just one person but by all of them together.

”It’s about everybody deciding at the same time that maybe this is the moment where we take a minute and stop Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” she said. “But it’s been the most amazing chapter of my life.”
On September 8, 2020, it was announced that Keeping Up With The Kardashians would be coming to an end.
Kim Kardashian confirmed the news on Instagram, writing: “After what will be 14 years, 20 seasons, hundreds of episodes and numerous spin-off shows, we are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.
“We’ll forever cherish the wonderful memories and countless people we’ve met along the way.

“Thank you to the thousands of individuals and businesses that have been a part of this experience and, most importantly, a very special thank you to Ryan Seacrest for believing in us, E! for being our partner, and our production team at Bunim/Murray, who’ve spent countless hours documenting our lives.”
KUWTK first debuted on October 14, 2007 and focused on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian–Jenner blended family, led by matriarch Kris.
Sources close to her told The Sun that she “pulled the plug” on Keeping Up With The Kardashians over fears that Kanye West was causing “irreversible damage” to their brand.
The insiders said she had “had enough” of her daughter Kim’s unpredictable husband.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye earlier this year after almost seven years of marriage.
Following the end of their contract for new episodes with E!, the Kardashians have signed a major deal with Hulu where they will produce and create content specifically for the streaming platform.
