If you’re a fan of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” or “The Kardashians,” you’ve probably wondered what goes on behind the scenes and how the shows are played on your televisions.
A producer revealed how the show was put together, what it was like working with the Kardashians, which moments of the show were scripted and who was her favorite Kardashian.
According to the producer, filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians was “an unforgettable journey.”
Delphine Lauren is a producer based in Los Angeles, California. She previously worked on E! reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” during its 2007-2021 run.
Lauren’s role as producer on the show consisted of sticking to a certain budget and hiring other crew members including camera crew and make-up artists based on the budget.
She describes working on the set of the show as “unforgettable” and a “roller coaster” as she followed the family and documented the highs and lows they went through over the years.
Lauren explains that before filming, cast members are asked what particular life event they want to film to serve as a story arc for the show, and the crew spends the next few months following them and capturing key moments from their travels.
She added that the producers’ experiences with filming were also exciting and there should be a reality show documenting their lives.
Lauren claims “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” wasn’t scripted.
“Following people like the Kardashians…the reality of their lives is not the reality of anyone else on the planet,” says Lauren.
“They’re living such a great life and being able to follow that from the point of view of reality as they live, it’s been so much fun.”
She also tells fans that “nothing was scripted” into the show. “You tell them what you want them to talk about, but they take it from there,” says Lauren.
“So you have a direction to go in and it’s just developing itself and it’s really fun to see.”
Lauren shared that it was important to build relationships with the cast members during filming.
“I feel it’s very important for the producer to establish a relationship with this talent because you want mutual respect,” she says.
Lauren revealed that her favorite Kardashian to work with was Kim.
“I especially liked Kim because she understands budgeting,” she says. “She’s a businesswoman, she cared, it’s always been her show, she rallied the family… She was like, ‘Guys, this is our show. ‘” We want it to be successful, we want it to be good.”
Despite Lauren’s experience as a producer, some fans weren’t convinced that the show wasn’t scripted and that she was under an NDA contract.
“Unwritten? This has NDA written all over it,” said one fan.
“It may not have been scripted but it was definitely planned. Another fan pointed out that they know they’re going to get important calls or what topics to bring up, but it’s not like they follow a script.”

That’s why scenes of them like eating salad or any one of them would be like, ‘Wait, so how was that thing you did?’ As if this was the first time they had spoken about it.
Some fans speculate that some of the moments featured in the show were scripted for dramatic effect, such as Kris Humphries’ suggestion that Kim and Kim lose her diamond ring in the ocean on vacation only to find it back soon after.
However, there is no concrete evidence that Keeping Up with the Kardashians was written or not, and we can just take Delphine Lorraine’s word for it.
