If the whole point of watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” is to get a glimpse of Kim Kardashian’s private life, where the hell is boyfriend Kanye West?

A source close to Kanye says that he refuses to appear on the show because it would be “bad for his image.”

He has, however, agreed to make a few cameo appearances on the show’s upcoming 8th season.

“He has made several brief appearances on the Kardashian reality shows, but wants nothing to do with future filming,” said a source. “Kanye’s team believes it’s bad for his image and brand to appear on a reality show because it makes him look cheap. And, Kim isn’t pushing the issue at all as she knows Kanye won’t bend on it.”

Kim Kardashian has not said anything about the show coming to a close or her leaving the show, but she did say in a recent interview that West has “taught [her] a lot about privacy.”

“I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything,” she said. “I’m shifting my priorities.”

Kris Jenner blames West for influencing Kim to want to leave show.

“In spite of what Kim wrote today, she does want to quit the show, [and] Kris is flipping out,” said a source. “[Kris] thinks the show will be nothing without Kim, and she is pissed at Kanye [West] for steering Kim towards quitting.

It is a really screwed up situation over there right now.”

Looks like Kim will have to choose between her mother and the father of her child as to who she wants to let control her career.
