Kourtney Kardashian has announced that she’s taking a step back from filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The 40-year-old has been filming the popular E! reality series since 2007, but now she wants to focus on raising her young family off camera.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight alongside her sisters Kim and Khloe, who will remain permanent fixtures on the show, Kourtney said: “I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there.”
“But I’m not saying goodbye… I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet, but it’s being filmed. Currently, in this room.”
Khloe said she hopes Kourtney will change her mind in the future.
She said: “We definitely love Kourtney and we will miss Kourtney and whatever she decides to do, but people come, people go all the time in this family.”
“We feel like it’s a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, she’ll be back. They all come back.”
Kourtney has three children with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick – Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and Reign, four.
