Brody Jenner, the 29-year-old son of Bruce Jenner, will become a permanent fixture on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, In Touch magazine is reporting.
The reality show already features Brody Jenner’s stepmother Kris Jenner, her children from her first marriage to Robert Kardashian and her two daughters with Bruce.
“Brody Jenner is going to be a full-time cast member on the next season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” a source told In Touch.
Brody Jenner is no stranger to the reality realm.
He has previously made guest appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Brody Jenner also appeared with his brother Brandon in The Princes of Malibu and was featured on The Hills while dating its star Lauren Conrad.
His decision to take on a more solid role comes as Kim Kardashian, 32, admitted the breakdown of her marriage to Kris Humphries has left her ready to quit the show.
Kim Kardashian explained: “Going through a divorce for anybody is devastating and heartbreaking, and then to have to do it and feel like you have to explain what is happening is such an awkward thing.
“You have to explain your choice to millions of people, and then they’re disappointed. I’m disappointed. Why are they disappointed?”
Now comes word that Brandon Jenner and his wife Leah will also be joining the show as regulars.
Khloe Kardashian wrote on her blog khloekardashian.celebuzz.com: “I’m always excited for each new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but I’m especially excited for this upcoming season because you’re going to be seeing a lot more of the Kardashian/Jenner clan!
“My stepbrothers, Brody and Brandon, and Brandon’s wife Leah are going to be on the show much more, which means an even closer look into the inner-workings of my crazy, wonderful family! Get ready people!”
Taking a step back from what she said earlier, Kim Kardashian chimed in: “As everyone knows, we are extremely proud of the show and all of us are staying on through at least season 10.
“The show remains to be my number one priority and it’s a big part of my life and I enjoy every moment of it. It has given me such a rare opportunity to share more of my life with all of you and has brought my family closer to each other. I’m looking forward to the new season and beyond.”
The new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is set to premiere in July.
