There’s going to be even more family to keep up with on the next season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Khloe has just confirmed that her stepsibling and former “Hills” star Brody Jenner will join the show next season.
“I’m always excited for each new season of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ but I’m especially excited for this upcoming season because you’re going to be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian/Jenner clan! My stepbrothers, Brody and Brandon, and Brandon’s wife Leah are going to be on the show much more, which means an even closer look into the inner-workings of my crazy, wonderful family!” she wrote on her blog. “Get ready people!” Brandon and Brody are Bruce Jenner’s kids from a previous marriage.
In addition to his starring role on “The Hills,” on which he courted Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari, Brody has occasionally made appearances on “Keeping Up.” He and brother Brandon also starred on their own short-lived reality show, “The Princes of Malibu,” back in 2005; that show featured appearances from their stepfather, award-winning producer/songwriter David Foster. Spencer Pratt also appeared on the series.
Perhaps the move to add more family to the series comes in the wake of Kim Kardashian’s decision to leave some of her personal life personal. She recently confirmed that she has no plans to leave the E! series anytime soon, but she has made it clear that the baby she’s expecting will not be the focus of her on-camera life.
“I’m going to keep that private,” she told MTV News back in January, adding that the birth of her child with Kanye West isn’t likely to be featured on the show. West has made several appearances on her E! shows. The eighth season of the show is currently filming and is expected to premiere on E! in June. Kim confirmed that baby Kimye is due in July .
