‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Trailer: Kanye Joins the Kast

ALTHere’s something else to add to Kim Kardashian’s IMDb page: Yet another season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Just days after the reality star was declared by the Internet as being “emblematic of the shallowness of American culture in the first two decades of the new millennium,” a trailer for the latest season of the E! series was released showing the 31-year-old vacationing with her family in the Dominican, modeling in her underwear, and getting over her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries with Kanye West. Nothing quite as satisfying as proving those skeptics wrong, eh?

Of course, it’s the footage of Kanye (who passed the Kardashian litmus test of being crazy, famous, and having a ‘K’ in your name) that will likely garner the most attention. Kourtney Kardashian’s baby announcement and Khloe Kardashian’s airing out her marital woes with Lamar Odom will feel like old news to fans by the time these episodes air, so the hook seems to be, yet again, Kim’s relationships. (The trailer also shows a segment about Kris Jenner’s former affair and — “Spoiler alert,” says no one — Scott Disick being a complete nightmare of a human being.)

Since the very nature of reality television is voyeurism, it makes sense that Kim — who has turned voyeurism into an incredibly successful business enterprise for herself — the center of the Keeping Up universe. Would this family’s quirks — Kris’ lips are botched! Mason’s young life has been on display since the minute he was born! So krrrraaaazaaay! — be enough to keep interest in this show going? Or, as the trailer would suggest, does this family need manufactured drama to thrive in the reality world? Watch the teaser and decide for yourself:
