Kourtney Kardashian has spoken about her decision to step away from her family's series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians after 14 years of filming the show, saying that she felt "unfulfilled".
In her cover interview for the July/August issue of Vogue Arabia Kourtney addresses the decision she made last year to take a step back from the show, which was revealed to viewers during series 18.
Tensions had been running high within the family after a physical fight broke out between Kourtney and Kim, and arguments between the sisters appeared to suggest that things were at tipping point.
Speaking about the decision, Kourtney said, "I have been filming the show non-stop for 14 years… I was feeling unfulfilled and it became a toxic environment for me to continue to have it occupy as much of my life as it was," she says. "Privacy is something I have come to value and finding that balance of private moments with being on a reality show is hard."
She continued, "People have this misconception that I don’t want to work, which isn’t true," she says. "I am following my happiness and putting my energy into that which makes me happy."
In the clip of the show where she announces the decision, she says she wants to dedicate time and energy to being a mother, something she spoke about in the interview with Vogue Arabia, "I always try my absolute best when I’m with my kids not to be on my phone, to be present in what we’re doing, and have those moments where you’re looking in each other’s eyes and connecting," she says. "It’s so important."
