The Kardashians’ showrunner revealed that Kim Kim Kardashian ‘never’ pressured her boyfriend Pete Davidson to appear on their reality series.
The Skims founder, 41 and the comedian, 28, were first linked last year after they raised eyebrows with a kiss on Saturday Night Live, and confirmed their romance soon after.
Kim recently let cameras into their relationship during a recent episode of her Hulu series and confirmed that she slid into his DMs first.
But it wasn’t until the emotional finale that viewers finally got their first snippet of the pair together, with Kim introducing her man to a crew member off-camera in the post-credits scene.
Although Pete’s name has been mentioned throughout the 10-parter, fans questioned why he wasn’t featured on the main show.
Executive producer Danielle King expressed that the heart of the programme is about ‘this family,’ and the women’s choice to include their ‘significant others’ has been ‘up to them.’
‘I have never once seen; Kim never tried to persuade Pete (to be on the show)’ she said.
‘Pete’s a high profile person, he’s an actor; like Kim has said before; when the cameras are rolling for him, it means performance time. When the cameras are rolling for this family, it’s time to get real.
‘Whether we have in-depth story lines, that’s entirely up to him…that’s entirely a conversation between Kim and Pete,’ she added to Deadline.
Considering their relationship seems to be going from strength to strength we’re hoping this could lead the way to a possible Pete cameo in season two.
Kim also insisted that she ‘wasn’t opposed’ to filming with the SNL star for some episodes, but ‘it’s just not what he does’.
‘But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away,’ she told Variety in a recent interview.
‘I think I might film something really exciting coming, but it wouldn’t be for this season.
‘I’m definitely open to talking, and I definitely explain it.’
The lovebirds, who’ve been dubbed Kete, made their romance official at the end of last year before jetting away on some luxurious holidays and made a bold statement at this year’s Met Gala.
This marks the first public relationship Kim has embarked on following the end of her marriage to Kanye West, last February.
The Kardashians is available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ now.
