Bible, we’ve never been more devastated than we are right now. In case you already forgot, this past Tuesday, the world of reality television experienced a hard loss, as news broke that Keeping Up With the Kardashians would officially be leaving our screens next year.

To our amazing fans – It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 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. Our last season will air early next year in 2021. Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever. With Love and Gratitude, Kim

Of course, we’ve been scrambling ever since, trying to make sense of the shocking decision. After a heartfelt post from Kim, we still needed more. Lucky for us, though, momager Kris has just done what she does best, and has come to the rescue to fill in the pieces…

“You’re going to make me cry all over again,” Jenner revealed to On Air With Ryan Seacrest, as she sat down (virtually, of course), with the radio host Wednesday morning. What’d she have to say about the family’s on-screen exit?

“It’s funny, when we talked yesterday, I kinda had my wits about me, and I thought I was really strong. And, you know, this is the right decision,” she continued. Unfortunately, that moment didn’t last long…

“Today… I woke up and was in the gym at 5 o’clock with Khloé and Kim, and we just kind of sat there and looked at each other and said, ‘Whoa, what a ride.’ It was quite the morning,” the emotional star revealed.

As for who’s taking it the hardest? Something tells us it’s not who you had in mind… “I think Khloe… is probably the one who is taking it the hardest and really hasn’t stopped crying since we announced. She’s been so sweet and just emotional about it,” Jenner explained.

Well, now for the answer we’ve all been waiting for: why. would. they. do. this. to. us? I mean, literally, Kim, you’re being so rude. “I think for us to take a minute and breathe and everybody slow down a bit,” the KUWTK star continued. “Not slow down professionally, but just, you know, figure out what our next steps are.”
