The first promotional photos for season eight of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ were released on May 24, and while the family looks totally great and happy, there is one glaring omission from the portrait — Kanye West!
So is this the nail in the coffin confirmation that Kanye West definitely won’t be showing up in season eight of Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Despite the fact that he and Kim Kardashian are having a baby together, he was left out of the reality show’s new promo photographs.

It’s never appeared truer what Kim once said, that she and Kanye “live different lives.” These promo pics include everyone — the other boys Lamar Odom and Scott Disick even piled in for the picture — except Kanye.
The big, happy family photograph only emphasizes that Kanye isn’t there, and is perfect symbolism for his and Kim’s disagreement over privacy issues and the idea that Yeezy is not yet “part of the family.”
Kanye West Thinks Kim Kardashian’s Show Is Demeaning
Whether or not it was Kanye’s decision to stay out of the promo photos, he has reportedly voiced his displeasure for Kim’s reality TV role before. “Since Kim got pregnant, Kanye’s been emboldened to suggest that maybe she should move on to the next stage of her career,” a friend of the rapper told OK!. “He’s been watching her shows and he thinks they’re demeaning to her and the rest of the family.”
While Kim’s pregnancy promises to dominate much of the drama of this upcoming season, don’t expect to see Kanye by her side as long as the cameras are rolling. His absence has been obvious during scary moments on the show like Kim’s miscarriage scare.

The reality TV/privacy dispute really puts Kim in an uncomfortable situation where she has to keep her family life and her love life separated. It’s already started causing friction, as HollywoodLife.com reported EXCLUSIVELY. “Kris is upset, she feels like family always came first but Kim has slowly been slipping away,” a source close to the family revealed.
A picture usually speaks a thousand words, but this one seems to speak even more than that about the possible struggles Kim and Kanye may have going forward. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
