KUWTK drama erupts at the Family Feud taping


The taping of the Kardashians and Jenners versus the Wests for Family Feud may not have gone as well as the KUWTK family would like us all to think. 

Jonathan Cheban isn’t a Kardashian or a Jenner but he might as well be. He’s been around since the beginning of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and despite being Kim’s BFF, Jonathan has also managed to bond with the rest of the KarJenner clan.

That’s why it wasn’t surprising at all when Jonathan was present for the recent Family Feud taping. As it turns out, he almost didn’t get to play and that would have been bad news for the famous family who put him on the map.

According to Page Six, there was a big argument before Family Feud filmed over the weekend. The problem was with Jonathan Cheban, who was flown in to film the show. When it turned out that they only needed five players instead of six, there was no way Jonathan was going to let them sit him out.

It turns out that Kendall Jenner was there along with Khloe Kardashian, their grandmother MJ, cousin Cici Bussey and Kris Jenner. That made a complete team of five without Jonathan, who wondered why he’d been flown in from Miami for the event only to not have a spot.

“Jonathan Cheban flipped out backstage because they paid for him to fly in from Miami and then they only wanted five contestants,” an insider told Page Six. “He had a huge blowout with Kris because she wanted her mom, MJ, on. They allowed Kris and MJ to play as one unit since Jonathan flipped out.”

Kim Kardashian played for the West family alongside Kanye and three of his family members who are reportedly his cousins. Both sides were playing for charity, which should have meant this was a fun day and not one where an argument broke out and tension was on the set.

According to the report, reps for both sides were contacted about what happened on the Family Feud set.  It’s not surprising that a Kardashian rep never responded. However, Jonathan Cheban’s rep says there was no blowout.
