It’s official: “Rob & Chyna” is reality television gold. The first teaser for the E! series, which stars Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, dropped Monday.
The couple has had a whirlwind relationship, getting engaged and pregnant in a matter of months, not to mention his famous family, the Kardashian sisters, do not like their future sister-in-law. There’s also the quasi-incestuous aspect to their relationship.
Blac Chyna used to date Tyga, who is the father of her son, King Cairo. Tyga ended his engagement with Chyna to date Rob’s half-sister, Kylie Jenner. Kylie and Chyna started a massive social media feud, which ended after Rob began dating Chyna.
Based on that convoluted background, it’s no surprise that the trailer is already filled with drama. It starts out with Chyna throwing flowers, presumably from Rob, into a pool. But the most outrageous moment is when Chyna asks Rob if he’s still talking to other women. “Are you still texting b------?” the 28-year-old Lash Bar owner yells, presumably at her beau, 29. “Yes or no?!”
It’s assumed the couple briefly broke up after Rob removed all Chyna’s pictures from his Instagram page. “One of the people in her crew asked her to do something without him, and he snapped,” an insider told Us Weekly last month. “They’ve been spending a ton of time together and filming a show together. Add to that the stress of a new relationship and it’s inevitable that there will be some tension and fighting.”
The reality show, which consists of six episodes, won’t just show the couple fighting. The trailer also promised to show some softer moments, like when Rob kisses Chyna’s pregnant belly.
Overall, though, the trailer seems a little extreme — like maybe Chyna is putting on a show for the cameras. But that would mean reality TV isn’t real and we all know that’s just not true, right?
“Rob & Chyna” will premiere on E! Sunday, Sept. 11, at 9 p.m. EDT.
