It looks like all that talk of leaving Keeping Up With the Kardashians is actually turning into a reality for the eldest Kardashian sibling.

Fans of the family know that Kourtney hasn't exactly been into the series which catapulted them into fame for some time now, constantly telling her sisters that she would rather focus on her kids than be in the spotlight. While she has butted heads with Kim and Khloé on the subject, she's clearly doing her things her way, and is now taking a break from the reality show.

The 40-year-old star explained her decision to Entertainment Tonight in the video below, saying, "I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there. But I'm not saying goodbye." She also teased what's to come for Season 18 of KUWTK, which is currently being filmed, stating that fans will see her toy with the idea of leaving the show more in-depth then.

Kim and Khloé surprisingly seem supportive of Kourt's decision in the interview, with KoKo adding, "I feel like it's a revolving door, so Kourtney might leave this week, [but] she'll be back. They all come back." She also made sure to note that the series will continue even if Kourtney decides to quit for good.

Kourtney is a mom-of-three to nine-year-old Mason, seven-year-old Penelope, and four-year-old Reign, all of whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. Apart from her lifestyle website Poosh, which she launched this year, Kourt normally is hesitant to take on more work beyond KUWTK, always stressing her want to put her kids first. While a break from the show might be what she needs right now, however, we're sure she won't be gone for long.
