E! Network Planning Up to Four New Kardashian Spinoffs

The Kardashian petition was a flop.

A petition started by a 41-year old Colorado woman who begged E! to get rid of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries after 72 days of marriage didn’t gain any headway with network executives. Despite more than 165,000 people who signed the petition, which went viral in a matter of days.

E! is not only keeping the popular reality show on air but will add more spinoffs to its lineup. NBCUniversal cable entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer revealed to the Hollywood Reporter that the network has no plans to get rid of the Kardashians.

“I think it will have its own life expectancy,” she says of the lucrative brand that the family has built, “and we’ll just go along with it and help hone what’s right for E! and what’s not right for E! as we develop a whole other world.”

When you add in Kris and Bruce Jenner‘s two youngest daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Hammer reveals she hopes for “two, three, even four new Kardashian [spinoffs].” In fact, E! aired a Sweet Sixteen special for Kendall on Monday.

The network has already revealed that camera crews will follow Lamar and Khloe Odom to Dallas. Odom was traded to the Dallas Mavericks from the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this week. Odom said is brother-in-law Rob Kardashian will tag along to Dallas.

“We’ll have the whole family here,” Lamar, 32, told Us Weekly. Khloe’s friend Malika Haqq will also accompany them.

“I’m disappointed to leave my home, but I’m here now,” said Lamar, adding that “Khloe is a great wife… She’ll make anywhere feel like home.”
