'Original socialite' Paris Hilton has had her say on the end of KUWTK after Kim Kardashian announced it would be coming to an end.

Paris Hilton has explained why she thinks Keeping Up With The Kardashians has to come to an end - insisting the famous family needs a break from the spotlight. Paris' pal and former employee Kim Kardashian dropped the bombshell news earlier this week that 2021 would mark the end of the reality smash. And after a whopping 20 seasons, "original socialite" Paris understands why the family have decided to step back from the show. She hasn't yet spoken with the Kardashian-Jenner clan about their show's end but reckons they want to move on to focus on their businesses and family life. Paris herself boasted a hugely popular reality show, The Simple Life, which ran between 2003 and 2007.

Paris added: "And after 20 seasons, I think they are ready to just live their life and not be on camera every second."
