When the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion was announced, host Andy Cohen said no topic would be “off limits.” Now that the reunion special has been filmed, Cohen promises he left nothing off the table.
“I went into them. I was like, ‘Look, I’m asking everything. I am. I’m asking everything,'” Cohen revealed on his SiriusXM radio show Andy Cohen Live on Monday.
“By the end of the day, I do not think that there was a topic that we did not cover,” he said. “Mention a Kardashians’ scandal to me and I will tell you if we covered that.”
Among the topics discussed? Estranged family member Caitlyn Jenner, Kim’s exes Kanye West and Kris Humphries, Khloé’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson and ex Lamar Odom, Kylie Jenner’s lips, “fake butts,” and Kim’s shocking 2016 robbery in Paris. Even Kim’s infamous sex tape with Ray J was discussed, proving that, truly, no topic was off limits.
“Kim and Khloé specifically were like, ‘We want to do this. We want to do this right. We want to go out with a bang. We want this, we want to go there. Do your thing, do your thing,'” Cohen said. “But it was a bit kind of intimidating when I sat down with them because they were so not used to this.”
In fact, Cohen went on such a deep dive, he revealed, “Kendall at the end said, ‘Wow, this was so great. We actually talked about so much stuff we have never talked about and have never been able to put to bed or address.'”
But he added that fans should not expect a Real Housewives-style reunion full of fighting that Cohen is famous for hosting on Bravo. “I think that Kris [Jenner] very consciously didn’t want it to have the rancor that some Housewives reunions have, or the level of acrimony,” he said.
“And the thing is, the Kardashians, they’re not going to get out there and fight. That’s not what they do. And it’s not what I wanted from them. What my goal was to talk about everything, to quote Bethenny Frankel, ‘to mention it all.'”
Filming for the reunion took place on April 23, and Cohen shared a behind-the-scenes sneak peek on Instagram. “No grounds rules. Nothing’s off limits. It’s on,” he said.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians is in the midst of its 20th and final season on E!. The reunion special, called Keeping Up With the Kardashians: The Final Curtain, will air after the series finale this summer. A release date has not been announced.
