Kourtney Kardashian slams KUWTK as 'toxic', says she's made to look like a 'b***h'
Kourtney Kardashian is speaking up about her long-running TV show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ and the effect it had on her mental health. In a fresh Bustle interview released on Thursday, the reality TV star revealed how “toxic” the set of the show was towards her at the end. "Shooting our show, it became a really toxic environment at the end for me," she said.
Kourtney also confessed that she was almost made to play a character who fights a lot and is mean to her sisters for no reason towards the final seasons of the long-running reality TV show. "I would fight with my sisters. There was, like, just a lot going on. And even for me personally, I wasn't in the happiest place. I felt like I was being almost a character," she added.

The Poosh founder also revealed that on the show she was profiled to suit the narrative of a really “b***cy” sister - "this is Kourtney, and she's in a bad mood, so even though she was laughing really at lunch, we're going to cut out the laughing and let's only use the annoying comment that she said."
Kourtney also added that while on the show she was "used to always being a b***h and having no feelings," she's the complete opposite in real life. "I just have feelings. Like, an abundance of them. I would just start crying all the time," she said.
‘The Kardashians’ star’s therapy journey has helped her change her mindset, "Normally I'd have a really good comeback [to insults], like, 'Well, you're covered in cellulite.' But then I would be like, 'I have nothing mean to say. I'm not a b***h anymore," she explained.
Kourtney has also previously talked about KUWTK’s toxic environment, "I have been filming the show non-stop for 14 years. I was feeling unfulfilled and it became a toxic environment for me to continue to have it occupy as much of my life as it was. Privacy is something I have come to value and finding that balance of private moments with being on a reality show is hard," she shared, explaining her brief exit from the show in 2020 on Vogue Arabia.
