Kanye West will appear on the eighth season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Khloe Kardashian says during an interview with MTV. The new season launches Sunday (June 2) on E!, though West’s appearance on that episode has not been confirmed.
West will appear, though, in episodes with his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Khloe’s sister. “I wouldn’t say [Kanye] is like a main person, fixture on the show, but he’s definitely on because he’s a part of Kim’s life,” Khloe says to MTV of Kanye’s role on the program this season. “But, he’s not on like we are.”
West and Kim are expecting their first child in July. In the first episode of the new season, Kim learns the gender of her baby. Kim is slated to hold her baby shower Sunday in the Los Angeles area, according to rapfix.mtv.com.
West appeared in 2012 on the seventh season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” The rapper-producer caught flak for his appearance on the program. West is also working on his forthcoming album and performed his new track “New Slaves” on “Saturday Night Live” May 20.
UPDATE: It was revealed yesterday (June 2) on the season eight premier of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” that Kanye West and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian are having a girl. “I’m so excited we’re having a girl,” Kim said on the episode. “Who doesn’t want a girl? They’re the best and I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted. He wanted a little girl.”
Kim was joined by her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe and Kourtney during the doctor’s appointment when the doctor revealed the sex of Kim’s baby. They were all watching the ultrasound together. Kim is due in July.
Kim’s sister Khloe told MTV News that Kanye and Kim made a mutual decision to announce the sex of their child on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” “Kim and Kanye, they both mutually agree on obviously what they want to have on the show or not,” Khloe said. “And so I think everyone is curious and wants to know. And we have opened up so much of our lives, so I think it’s only natural. And I’m excited. I’m excited for everyone to find out so I can stop holding in information.”
