Members of the Kardashian clan were divided over whether to end the family’s iconic reality show, Page Six is told. Sources say that there were two camps — with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner on one side, and Khloé Kardashian and Scott Disick on the other.
“Some of them needed the money more than others,” said an insider. (Although, we can’t help but note, after 18 seasons so far, none of the co-stars is exactly strapped for cash.)
According to sources, Kylie, Kendall and Kim were all in favor of axing “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” once it became clear that it’s no longer their best money-making strategy. Meanwhile, West has long wanted wife Kim off the reality show, so he joined the Can-It Club.
We’re told that Disick and Khloé both see the show as an easy and reliable payday. Insiders point out that while Kylie has her famously lucrative cosmetics line and Kendall has a thriving modeling career, Khloé and Disick’s clothing companies — Good American and Talentless, respectively — are, by comparison, small potatoes.
No word on where Rob Kardashian’s sock empire fits into the picture.
The source echoed our report from last week, saying that the family would likely have continued with the show were it not for the harsh financial realities of cable TV during the global financial crisis.
“If it wasn’t for the pandemic, it could have kept going,” said an insider. “But times are changing, and budgets are lower, and people want to move on.”
Last week — after the family announced that the show will end next year — we reported that the family’s personal struggles (including West’s mental-health crises) combined with dwindling financial prospects to doom the series. We also reported that they’re considering a streaming deal.
A rep for the family declined to comment.
Radhika Apte reveals real reason why she got married
Radhika Apte needs no introduction to Kollywood fans after her appearance as Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in ‘Kabali’ directed by Pa Ranjith. The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.
Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
