We don’t have to tell you that just like most reality shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a scripted and inorganic television program. But, one of the show’s producers Russell Jay recently revealed that the show is more fake than some of us even imagined, in a testimony on behalf of Kim Kardashian’s soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries. Court documents retrieved by Life & Style reveal that Jay testified that many of the scenes from the show were scripted, reshot and edited by Kim to portray Kris in a negative light. He also exposed many other deceptive tactics used in the filming of the show.
One point that Jay highlighted was that Kris’s surprise proposal depicted on the show wasn’t actually a surprise at all. Jay says that Kim was well aware of the proposal beforehand and that she repeatedly filmed the scene until she nailed the perfect “surprised face.” It was also revealed that Kim would literally orchestrate scenes from scratch. For example, there was one scene where Kim is shown asking her mom and manager Kris Jenner for advice and confessing that she was having trouble in her marriage. According to Jay, the scene was filmed well after Kim filed for divorce in October of 2011.
There was also a scene where Kim blasted Kris for throwing a party in their hotel room while she was “out of town.” Jay testified that Kim was actually in the hotel the entire time and completely aware of everything that was going on. It seems that many of the crying scenes from the show weren’t even real. Jay says the Kardashians frequently used crying sticks to stimulate tears during filming.
While no one really needs to be told that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a pile of bologna, Russell Jay’s deposition certainly helps Kris Humphries’s claim that Kim only married him for publicity reasons.
Kim and Kris are both schedule to appear in court on May 6th.
