Khloe Kardashian thinks 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' makes her family closer.

The 30-year-old star appears on the programme alongside siblings Kourtney, Kim and Rob, half-sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, mother Kris Jenner and stepfather Bruce Jenner and hopes their experiences ''help'' their fans.

She said: ''The show brings our family closer together. When things are good in your life, you want to be boastful and shout from the rooftops.

''And when things are going badly, it can be natural to want to hide away. But I hope people watch our show and relate to all of our ups and downs. I hope it helps our fans in some way.''

Kim's husband Kanye West - with who she has 19-month-old daughter North - only makes limited appearances on the show and she admits she has to ''compromise'' on how much of their lives are now shown on screen.

She said: ''Kanye is more private than I am but he understands my life. I was ding the show before we met and he respects that. He is very supportive of what I do.

''Obviously there are times when he doesn't want things shown on camera too much, but he knows how important it is for me to share my life. It's definitely a compromise.''

Despite Kanye's reservations, it was his idea to film his surprise lavish proposal to Kim on her 33rd birthday in October 2013.

Kim's sister Khloe told Closer magazine: ''It was Kanye's idea to film his engagement to Kim. He was the one who called the production crew and said get all the family to San Francisco.''
