E! to Air Kardashian Tell-All Special with Ryan Seacrest
Producer Ryan Seacrest is diving deeper into the Kardashian business.
For the first time in the E! franchise's six years, Seacrest will sit down with the outspoken family for a special that is being billed as a "no-holds-barred" conversation about the families' most controversial and most talked-about moments, past and present.

The special, Ryan Secrest With the Kardashians: An E! News Presentation, a bid to keep the Kardashian conversation on E!'s air rather than in the tabloids, will air April 21 at 9 p.m. Also of interest to E! brass: a buzzworthy platform to launch the new series What Would Ryan Lochte Do?
In addition to a broader conversation about awkward moments and differing opinions with the entire Kardashian/Jenner family, the Kardashian special will include more intimate one-on-ones with Seacrest. Among the topics that will be addressed: Kim on her pregnancy fears and her relationship with Kanye West; Khloe on her desires to be a mother and husband Lamar Odom's NBA career; Kourtney on her relationship with Scott Disick; Rob on his recent weight gain; and younger siblings Kendall and Kylie on their budding modeling careers and life on and off the show.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians will return for its eighth season June 2, with an expanded 18-episode season.
