E! gives Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian their own series

E! is spinning off a new half-hour series from its docudrama Keeping up with the Kardashians, and it will focus only on Kourtney and Khloe when it debuts in August. Kourtney and Khloe in Miami–a working title, thankfully–follows them as they move to Miami to open a Dash store.

E!’s press release says that the two women will be “immediately faced with important business decisions and loads of work as they design and build the new boutique, all while trying to manage a new staff.” And because that’s not enough artificial drama, “Khloe is offered an opportunity to host her own late-night radio talk show on a local Miami station” but that “puts a strain on the sisters’ relationship as Khloe tries to juggle the radio show with her Dash responsibilities.”

Khloe most recently appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice 2 until she was fired by Donald Trump as punishment for her DUI. Kourtney recently appeared half naked in Maxim.

The network also suggests that the other Kardashians may appear, asking, “will the rest of the family watch from afar or stick their noses in the sisters’ new lives?”

More significantly, what will happen to Bruce’s face in the hot Florida sun?
