News! Khloe Kardashian had a big announcement to make on Wednesday. The 36-year-old star called in to SiriusXM Hits 1 to tell The Morning Mash Up stars that her 33-year-old brother Rob Kardashian is coming back to their family show Keeping Up With The Kardashians next season

Rob was frequently on the show, often providing laughs with Kourtney’s then partner Scott Disick. But during season seven he became a more minor character.
That did not stop him from appearing on other shows. Rob worked on the spinoff Khloe & Lamar in 2011 and on Dancing With The Stars that same year.
In 2016 he was the star of his own spinoff, Rob & Chyna, with then fiancee Blac Chyna with whom he shares daughter Dream.
But then his world came crumbling down.
Back at it: ‘My brother’s coming back around, like he’s feeling more confident and comfortable, I think, you know, he just started a new season,’ said the mother to True Thompson

Kardashian had a messy split from the music video star that led to him getting into hot water with the law when he shared revenge photos of a nude Chyna on Instagram.
There also has been a long custody war with Chyna over Dream and added to the mix is Chyna’s lawsuit against his family for her being fired from Rob & Chyna.
With all of the stress of juggling a bad split, a custody fighs, being a single parent and finding himself at the center of a lawsuit, Rob stepped back from filming KUWTK.

He became a recluse and was not seen in family photos for years.
in January 2019, Kim Kardashian explained Rob’s absence during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, saying, ‘He has his moods. Sometimes he’s like, “Look, I didn’t sign up for this” and then he’s like, “I’m cool to do it.”‘
In March Rob dropped a hint that he was returning to the show when he said, ‘My sisters forgot we were filming #KUWTK and thought it was bad girls club.’

Oh baby! In 2016 they appeared in the reality TV spinoff Rob & Chyna which saw them bicker
The use of the word ‘we’ made fans think he was on set.
In June he was spotted at Khloe’s birthday party flaunting a noticeably slimmer frame, making it clear he was camera ready.
Family members have said he is dedicated to a healthier lifestyle that includes partying less and exercising more while watching his diet.
This is vital to his well being as in December 2015 he was formally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which he has since said he no longer has.
It is not sure what Rob’s story line will be during next season of KUWTK but it is likely his ex Blac Chyna will not be on screen.
Also on the radio show, Khloe was asked if the show will go on forever.

Khloe says they feel at the end of every season that everything is covered and there is nothing more to film then something ‘diabolical’ happens.
‘We always say when it becomes un-fun and we are dreading doing something then we will give it up.
‘It’s not going to last forever, we know that, we’re so OK with that,’ said Khloe.
She also said she understands that Kourtney wanted to hit the pause button; earlier this month Kourtney said filming the show for so many years has become ‘toxic.’
Meanwhile, Rob continues to shared cute photos of his daughter Dream, aged three.
On Wednesday he posted a shot of the child at the beach in a white swimsuit and a beige summer hat.
The tot held a bucket in her hand while standing next to two beach towels as she enjoyed some quality time with her famous father.

Rob, who shares Dream with his ex Blac Cyna, captioned the snap with two heart face emojis.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was inundated with gushing comments from his followers over the sweet photo. One wrote: ‘She’s so beautiful’, while another said: ‘Keep it coming with the pictures. I love seeing her sweet little face on my TL’.
It comes shortly after Rob shared another adorable picture of Dream on Sunday, marveling in her selection of garments. The tot donned a large grey Muppets t-shirt, matching leggings and a pink Los Angeles Dodgers baseball hat. The proud dad captioned the photo: ”She dressed herself but she rocking the Dodgers hat let’s go’.
Dream was born in November 2016 with Rob and Chyna confirming their split the following month after just under a year of dating.
