Ratings for Keeping Up With the Kardashians may be dropping, but the youngest sister in the krew, Kylie Jenner, continues her climb to the top. Her beauty and fashion empire landed her on Forbes‘ top 100 highest-paid celebrities of the year list (she was No. 59), and she has a new show coming up.
Jenner is set to launch another phase of her young career with Life of Kylie, the E! docu-series that’s set to premiere on August 6. The show was initially supposed to start in July, but producer Ryan Seacrest told his Twitter followers that “the Kardashians/Jenners are big on tradition so we decided to push it to August to air on Sunday.” He also said the show would be well worth the wait. So what exactly will we be seeing on Life of Kylie?
As Jenner herself put it in the first teaser for the show, released in May, “When you grow up on camera, everybody feels like they know you, but they don’t.” In Life of Kylie, viewers will be given a chance to see Jenner break down not just the work that goes into maintaining a public image — AKA a significant part of her business — but also the *real* Kylie behind it all. That version of her spends downtime with friends, candidly goofs around with her family (always a highlight of KUWTK‘s run, TBH), and picks her nose. She’s only human, okay?
In the latest teaser, we get a closer look at the real moments behind the curated persona that gets projected out to the world. There are multiple instances of Jenner getting frustrated, being “over it,” and uttering the all-too-familiar phrase “I’m done!”
Of course, Jenner’s dating life has long been a subject of public scrutiny, and while we haven’t been given too much indication of just how deep they’ll dive into her breakup with Tyga and new relationship with rapper Travis Scott, Jenner can be heard admitting at one point that she wants whoever she’s dating to be “obsessed” with her.
One of the most intimate moments to come in the show is our intro to Jenner’s BFF, model Jordyn Woods. In the clip, Woods gets super real about the demands Jenner’s life has on her entire inner circle. “It’s draining, sometimes, being Kylie’s best friend,” Woods reveals in the clip.
Life of Kylie will take us behind the scenes of Jenner’s life. Ultimately, of course, it’s *still* a produced television show, and some things will no doubt be left off screen. But Seacrest assures us that the show will be a revelation. “The Kylie you see on KUWTK and Snapchat doesn’t even scratch the surface,” he tweeted. We’re gonna hold you to that, Ryan!
