After just one season, Kocktails with Khloe, which is described as “the most confusing talk show of our time“, has been cancelled.
The gist of the whole thing?
Khloe Kardashian invites celebrity guests to just sit and chat over
There’s games and food and a fake set, and the chef/kocktail-maker is Sharone Hakman, who appeared in the first season of US MasterChef.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, this “eye candy” (we promise these are not our words) chef opened up about why the show got cancelled.
Two hours away from the premier of #kocktailswithkhloe on @fyi Couldn’t be more proud of this girl @khloekardashian for putting it all out there and being such a positive source of energy. This show is full of laughs, good vibes and of course food + kocktails made by yours truly. Tune in tonight at 10Pst/9c – directv 266, dish 119, TWC 134, fios 129Advertisement
Hakman says he’s still getting his head around the cancellation of the show, which was doing well for the network.
“I still honestly don’t know [why the show was cancelled]. I mean, there’s rumours about this or that. I have my own opinions. But the reality is that I think we’re all so surprised… It just sort of happened,” he said.
The chef was asked whether Khloe had reached out to him after the cancellation, to which he awkwardly replied, “Um, no. No.”
But, that didn’t faze him.
“I’m sure she was upset internally as well. No one wants to get a show cancelled. It’s a lot of people’s jobs.
We confess the last time we cried at work. Can you relate? (Post continues after video.)
“… I’m so bummed about the show, because we had so much fun. It was such a good flow. Just different. Yes, it was very lighthearted in conversation — it wasn’t your everyday sort of interview conversation — but it was good times.”
Despite the lack of communication between Kardashian and Hackman, he said he would miss being in the show.
“Honestly, it was some of the most fun that I’ve had. I’m going to miss the whole team. From out with Khloe in our pre-show meeting and seeing everyone have a good time.
“That makes me sad because the show had a lot of good people. There’s not one negative thing I can say about anybody, because everyone worked hard and everyone walked away having a good time.”

Hackman was confidentially informed the show was going to be cancelled, but Kardashian maintains she wanted to follow other projects.
“Your support each week has meant more to me that you can image, and I’ll continue to make time for our weekly chats. There are SO many exciting things coming up for me that I can’t wait to share with you…I’m not going anywhere :) Love you always! XO,” she tweeted.
