1 min read

Well, we had a good run.

Kourtney Kardashian, eldest and arguably sassiest (yeah, we said it) of the Kardashian kids has announced she is stepping back from Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The 40-year-old who has quite literally been doing this show for almost 18 years, announced the news with sister Kim and Khloe on Entertainment Today.

“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there," she explained.

“But I’m not saying goodbye … I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet, but it’s being filmed. Currently, in this room," she continued.

Catch up on the latest Smallzy’s Surgery podcast (post continues):

“We definitely love Kourtney and we will miss Kourtney and whatever she decides to do, but people come, people go all the time in this family," Khloem 35, added.

“We feel like it’s a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, she’ll be back. They all come back.”

Kourtney has three children with ex Scott Disick – Mason, nine, Reign, four, and Penelope, seven.

This month also - totally a coinkidink we swear - coincides with the time Kourt opened the car door on Penelope's face, resulting in some pretty iconic pics:
