KARDASHIANS fans tore the show and Hulu apart over MAJOR editing flaws during the show’s season two dramatic premiere.
The premiere saw Khloe Kardashian reveal the news that she was expecting a baby with Tristan Thompson and covered her arrival.
After the Kardashians premiere aired, fans took to an online forum to weigh in, with many noting that it was strange to see both the baby announcement and the birth of Khloe’s son.
“It was pretty cool to see the baby being born (end of July! So recent!) but I know from next week we’re going back to Jan/Feb 2022 smh,” one reviewer commented.
Various viewers had different theories as to why the producers edited the show the way they did.
One speculated that Kim Kardashian’s breakup with Pete Davidson, who will debut in the second season, was to blame.
One user guessed: “I think the skite breakup screwed it up. They probably had more footage of them going to Marilyn Monroe fittings, to the MET, to that white house event they attended, to that trip to the bahamas and blah blah blah.”
Someone else suggested, “IMO they did the whole Khloe thing to get more viewers. Because that’s really all most people are looking for in season two. That and Kylie’s baby. “
A third fan wrote, “You see everything in PoV media about paps or people with phones. It’s been like this for 15 years of the show, and most reality shows. We watch the show for all the missing pieces, more info, behind the scenes and in pov as if we were there at the time.”
Another fan seemed to agree that Kim and Pete’s split was to blame: “They’re trying to change the narrative (of Pete and Kim’s script) and buy time to re-edit it.”

APPEARANCE OF PETE
Fans learned that the Saturday Night Live star will make her debut on the show in July.
Pete appeared in an early teaser for the show, making an NSFW comment to his then-girlfriend.
In the teaser, Kim suggests taking a shower with her now ex-boyfriend, who drops his phone and runs after her.
The SKKN mogul told the New York native, “Baby, do you want to take a shower with me real quick?”
Pete didn’t hesitate, replying, “Okay!”
The Suicide Squad actor threw his cellphone in the air, jumped after the Kardashian and followed her into the next room as she appeared to strip.
Viewers weren’t convinced by the exchange, however, saying he felt like Kim was “playing” and that Pete’s reaction was too over the top.
Critics also questioned the couple’s actual chemistry, calling the scene too “forced”.
One wrote on Reddit, “This scene is so corny, I’m sorry. It doesn’t feel authentic or real.
“That’s not to say that I don’t think they’re really dating, but this scene seems so forced. Like, ‘Look at all of us having sex! Doesn’t Pete have so much chance ??’ Yawn.”
Another added: “So scripted and fake. ‘Baby…'”
A third posted: “This really looks like an acting scene for him…of course in front of the cameras rolling he would ‘drop’ his phone and his pack of cigarettes. It’s too calculated.”
Yet another user commented, “Kim gives the same acting performance as at the start of a porno. It’s absolutely cringeworthy.”
Pete had yet to appear on the show, with producers picking up where they left off last season and bringing viewers into more recent Kardashian happenings.
Months after fans learned that Khloe, 38, was having a second baby with her cheating ex, she shared the first glimpse of her son.
At the start of the episode, the fashion mogul discussed her decision to welcome another child with Tristan Thompson, 31.
She revealed that they opted for an embryo transfer with a surrogate days before news of her cheating with Maralee Nichols went public.
In a confessional, Khloe got emotional, saying, “There’s something I need to talk about. That day when you were filming with Kim about Tristan and you found out Tristan had a baby with someone else, there was just something I wasn’t ready to talk about.”
The mum-of-two went on to say, “I don’t even want to cry but Tristan and I — I don’t even know if I mean Tristan and I — have another baby,” Khloe said in tears. .”
She added: “And obviously it’s just very private and I don’t want it to come out because I want to protect my mental well-being as well as the surrogates and all that. … it’s just been a lot to go through at at the same time.”
Her family rallied around her throughout the first part of the episode.
Khloe reflected on the moment fans first saw in the Season 1 finale which first showed the drama unfolding, revealing the moment she told Kim, 41, the news: ” There was a minute, I don’t know, I wasn’t with you guys, but from what I could see watching the final, I think [Kim] said, ‘If that’s not a sign that you shouldn’t have another baby with him, I don’t know what is.’
“But what you didn’t see was, I think, I said, ‘I have to tell you something, take me off the speakerphone. “”
After the SKIMS founder pulls her sister off the speakerphone, the TV personality is shown with a shocked facial expression as she is told about Tristan’s love child.
Khloe’s voice quavered as she revealed she told her sister, “And I told her. I said, ‘Well, we did an embryo transfer a few days ago. I mean it’s supposed to be a really exciting and amazing time and it’s just a different experience I think. I mean, I know.”
After her family threw her a low-key baby shower, Khloe learned that her baby boy had arrived.
Fans watched her rush to the hospital to witness the birth of her son.
On the way to the hospital, she told Kim, 41, who was following her, “I’m not ready.”
Her older sister encouraged her, saying, “You’re never ready.”
She even brought Hulu cameras inside the hospital which showed the special moment the baby was born.
Fans also got a glimpse of the first time Khloe was able to hold her baby boy for the first time in a tender moment.
Kim and Khloe both appeared in high spirits, with Kim waving the camera for plenty of videos.
The sibling duo were at bedside when Khloe’s surrogate pushed the child.
Someone, who appeared to be Kim, shouted, “There he is! Oh my God, he looks like True.”
Khloe immediately picked up the baby, skin to skin with the baby and rubbing his head and rocking him as he cried.
She gushed in a confessional: “I’m so grateful. It’s such a beautiful gift that we can have.
“Since December, it’s been this dark cloud that hangs over me every day. I feel depressed and sad and now that my son is here, I can move on.”
