Think dropped calls are just a problem made up for network carrier commercials? Khloé Kardashian would probably tell you to think again!
On March 17, the 29-year-old landed in hot water after appearing on the Australian morning show, Sunrise, to promote her new children’s line with her sisters called Kardashian Kids.
The topic quickly transitioned into a conversation about Khloé’s nieces and nephews—Kourtney’s children Mason and Penelope and Kim’s daughter North—when the reality star’s satellite connection was swiftly dropped.
The show took to Twitter to inform viewers that Khloé ended the interview after she was asked about baby Nori, writing, “We thought it was a technical glitch but turns out @KhloeKardashian’s people pulled the plug after @Sam_armytage asked about baby North.”
However, Khloé was quick to fire back at the show and refute the claims.
“Why would I cut an interview short because of North? Get over your self Sunrise… The call dropped… stop reaching for a story,” she tweeted. “You are so f—king desperate!”
Khloé didn’t hesitate blaming the incident on her “evil alter-ego” KhloMoney, writing, “Sorry KhloMoney took my phone.”
During the interview at the center of the dispute, the anchor, Samantha Armytage, questioned the reality star about the inspiration behind their children’s clothing line, which was recently released in the States, and asked how North is doing.
“North is fabulous, she is so beautiful. She’s awesome, and Penelope’s obsessed with her—it’s so cute to see that cousin dynamic,” Khloé gushed, before the screen faded to black.
It was her natural ease answering the question that has Sunrise’s executive producer Michael Pell questioning if a publicist is to blame.
“What happened with Khloé Kardashian on the show is a good lesson for publicists everywhere. Don’t try to censor natural conversation,” he explained. “When you watch the interview, you see Khloé had no problem with the questions. It’s obvious someone on her team did, and pulled the plug. Khloé shouldn’t declare war on us, she should declare war on her own publicists.”
