Kourtney and Kim Kardashian found themselves in a physical quarrel after a little argument about work ethic, on the season 18 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This may have come across as surprising to some, as the Kardashian-Jenners are infamously close and loyal, but those who have tuned into the episode could’ve foreseen this outcome.
So, how exactly did the KUWTK stars get to this situation?
After taking a break from filming, the sisters came back, with some more excited than the others. Kourtney was grappling with being back at work after her vacation in Italy with her kids. In a confessional, the mother of three lamented that she was just being torn in a lot of different directions having to shoot for prior shows, making her anxious knowing that she’s going to have no real privacy.
As Kourtney’s anxiety grew, she began ranting to sister Khloe about her hair and that she honestly doesn’t want to film ever again, leaving Khloe confused since Kourtney had prior decided to stay on the show after a shaky season 17. Furthermore, Kourtney’s attitude was condemned during an argument about a bill for a family vacation.
Kourtney felt that Khloe didn’t know “the whole story,” so she ordered the latter to stay out of it. After that, Kourtney confessed in another confessional that she felt Khloe didn’t have her back anymore.
During a sit-down, Kim and Khloe Kardashian confronted Kourtney about her “bad vibes” and “negativity”. Kourtney defended her side saying that she’s just kidding around, but Khloe accused her of being rude. Since then, Kourtney revealed that she felt ganged up on for it always used to be Khloe and her going against Kim and not the other way around.
The tension took its climax at the very end of the episode. During a visit with Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall Jenner, Kim brought up their youngest sister Kylie Jenner’s inability to walk in a fashion show due to sickness. After noting that she would’ve done the show if she were on her “death bed,” she unintentionally probed into Kourtney and Kendall’s work ethic, throwing shade that they wouldn’t do the same.
Kourtney only got more triggered as Kim only smiled throughout her backlash, resulting in her throwing a water bottle and lunging at Kim. Kourtney swore at her sister while Kim retorted to never come to her like that again, swearing that she’ll punch Kourtney in the face.- Advertisement -
As Khloe tried to disperse the situation, it was too late as a punch was thrown and several scratches were already exchanged. In an unexpected, shocking turn of events, amidst continuing insults from both sides, Kim slapped Kourtney many times.
Can Kourtney and Kim come back from this and make peace with each other? To answer that, be sure to tune in to next week’s all-new episode.
