Following this week's announcement that the E! reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" will be ending in 2021 after 20 seasons and 14 years on the air, fans of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" began clamoring for family matriarch Kris Jenner to join the Bravo show's cast.
Then on Sept. 9, Caitlyn Jenner — the "KUWTK" alum who was married to the famed momager for more than two decades — made it clear she too thought Kris would make an excellent addition to "RHOBH."
"Well, put it this way, Kris could handle all of those women and some others," Caitlyn told "Access." "That's kind of in her element. I think she would do really well. She would have a lot to say with all these girls. … She would be phenomenal on that show."
But Bravo exec Andy Cohen soon burst everyone's bubble. As reported by Page Six, the "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" host just cannot see a world in which Kris becomes a "Real Housewives" cast member.
"I don't think she would do it. She is leaving a show for which she has total control over," he said on his SiriusXM show "Radio Andy," Page Six reported on Sept. 10. "Why would she leave and join a show that she has no control over?"
Andy further explained his reasoning: "She wouldn't be an executive producer of the show. She wouldn't have control over the edits." And that, be believes, would be a dealbreaker. "I think for someone who is used to having so much power of a show, I can't see her surrendering that power," Andy added.
Kris thrilled "RHOBH" fans when she appeared on the most recent season of the Bravo series in her capacity as a friend of longtime star Kyle Richards.
