Shanna Moakler has signaled she intends to avoid the new Kardashians show entirely – which will feature scenes of her ex-husband Travis Barker and his new love Kourtney.
The 47-year-old model and actress was married to 46-year-old Blink 182 drummer Travis from 2004 to 2008 and they have two children together; 18-year-old son Landon and 16-year-old daughter Alabama.
Travis reportedly married 42-year-old Kourtney – who shares three children of her own with her ex-partner Scott Disick, 38 – in a ceremony in Las Vegas earlier this month, with scenes of the couple’s engagement and wedding expected in the new Kardashian Hulu/Disney+ show and reports suggesting the Vegas wedding was just a stunt for the show.
However, Shanna has stated that there is no way she will be tuning into the new series to see how her ex-husband is dealing with life without her.
She told Us Weekly: “I’ve never watched an episode of The Kardashians and I’m not going to start now.
“However, I wish them nothing but success. As long as my kids are happy, that’s all I care about. My ex’s relationship is really none of my business, but I continue to wish them the best of luck.”
Meanwhile, Shanna might not be the only one not bothering to tune into Kardashian’s new reality series – as she was manhandled by critics ahead of the first episode, which aired last week.
After 14 years, 20 seasons and 286 episodes of the original series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, there are concerns there may not be an appetite for a new series centered on the life of the fame-hungry family.
Early reviews branded the series as “aggressively boring” and lacking in new or interesting content – in episode one, Kim complains about the sextape that made her famous and how it continues to haunt her.
In a scathing take, Variety’s Daniel D’Addario said the show is “being held back” because it’s “obsessed with the past.”
He said the new show had “little” new information or gossip about the KarJenners and complained that Kim’s performance on the new show was “muted.”
While The Hollywood Reporter’s Lovia Gyarkye was similarly scathing about the first two episodes of the new reality show, she said it was a “disappointment” with a lack of “shock value.”
Labeling it “aggressively” boring, she said the show felt like an “experiment in marketing, selling viewers an unattainable aesthetic and lifestyle,” and complained that the family constantly flaunted their “staggering wealth.”
Meanwhile, Kourtney’s ex has thanked Scott for being engaged to Travis – as it finally helped him get out of their relationship, which lasted from 2005 to 2015.
He said: “I always had her friends or our family in my ear, like, ‘Don’t worry honey, you’ll find out someday.’ And ‘You’ll get back together one day.’ So my foot was always half in the door.
“Now we’re really just co-parents. I would say it’s probably one of the harder things in my life.”
