Why Kardashians Use Fake Houses on Show
A day after it was revealed that the Jenner mansion seen in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is not the family home at all, Kim Kardashian is coming clean about the family's use of fake houses.
Answering a fan's question on Mobio Insider about whether it was true the Kardashians use "fake houses" for their reality show, Kardashian explained that they use exteriors shots of different homes for "security purposes."
"My old home in Beverly Hills was really my home & I would get people showing up at all hours ringing my gate & had to call the police on several occasions," Kardashian wrote. "People hoping [sic] the gate & scaring me. It was so unsafe. The hollywood star tours would stop by too, bc they recognized my home from our show. After that we realized how unsafe it is to show the exterior of our homes. So now we use different homes for the outside for security purposes."
But, she added, "When we film inside, thats obviously our real home."
News that the Jenner house seen on the show is not the real family home first broke Wednesday when the Los Angeles mansion was listed for sale for $6.25 million and pictures of the interior did not match the sleek, modern interior of Kris Jenner's home as seen on television. The real family home is actually 20 miles away.
Whenever the "fake" mansion sells, the Kardashians may have to pretend they live in a different house, since the new owners could deny the reality family use of the exterior shots.
