Keeping Up with the Kardashians is getting pretty desperate for storylines in Season 16.
It’s nothing to be ashamed over. It’s something that happens to all long-running television shows.
On Sunday night, however, the reality star really scraped the bottom of the writing barrel, pretending that feuds existed between multiple family members who always get along.
FIRST and FOREMOST, Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian continued to have beef… for really the dumbest of reasons.
“Kourtney and I have been getting a bit closer over the past couple years and I love that she hangs out with me and my friends,” Kendall explained in a confessional.
“But, to be honest, I felt like there were just some moments where she was a bit rude and it really started to get to me at a certain point.”
She was referring here to Kourtney coming on a ski vacation with Kendall and allegedly “trying to be cool” by insulting her half-sister all over the place.
For example, the oldest Kardashian put her “muddy” shoes all over Kendall’s car, Jenner told Khloe and also told her to “chill the f-ck out” when she was stressed about losing keys while skiing.
Did Kourtney agree with this analysis?
Of course not.
She also confided in Khloe and said the thought Kendall was being “so f-cking annoying,” supposedly throwing a fit over adding potatoes to a grocery list and then getting mad when Kourtney said she would cover the cost.
Yes, these were truly, reportedly topics of debate between the loved ones.
“I definitely think it was unfair for Kendall to say I was bullying her,” Kourtney told Khloe in the car, adding:
“We were just having a good time. She’s just way more uptight than I thought, because I wasn’t trying to make fun of her at all.”
The argument over the potato actually continued between Kendall and Kourtney later on because the former took major exception to how the latter was making her look.
“Shut the f-ck up she said that,” Kendall snapped.
“I did not say one thing about steering off of a f-cking list. This is gonna make me mad, right now. I hate that she’s like trying to make herself look better to make me look f-cking crazy.
According to Kendall, she just wanted to avoid “wasting food.”
Following her chat with Khloe, a peeved Kendall called up Kourtney to hash things out; that was NOT the end result, however.
“Listen, I don’t have time to talk with a lunatic. We can talk when you’re ready to talk like an adult,” Kourtney told her.
After Khloe tried to make peace, and got blamed herself for spreading so much gossip, this happened:
Naturally, it was revealed that the two sisters were play fighting in order to punish Khloe.
“We came to the conclusion that Khloe made this a little bit worse than it needed to be,” Kendall confessed later on.
“So, we decided to stage a little fight to annoy Khloe and freak her out a bit for getting into our business.”
This had to be the first time the stars admitted a storyline was fake, right? Progress!
Elsewhere on the episode, Kris got into it with Kylie over… a parking spot? Over Kylie being a successful businesswoman?
It was hard to really tell because this was also so stupid.
“In front of everybody at the office she’s like, ‘Don’t ever park in my parking space again. It’s the one thing that means something to me. I’ve worked so hard,’” Kris told Kourtney over the phone at one point, stunned that Kylie talked down to her.
And also seemingly stunned that Kylie does work, despite Kris often defending her in the past over this exact issue.
“I’m important,” Kris added. “I’ve helped build this business with Kylie and I’m older. I’m the mom. I deserve a little bit of respect.”
How did Kylie feel about her mom challenging her at work? We’ve also got a clip of this ridiculous exchange and debate below:
What did you think of Keeping Up with the Kardashians this week?
Engrossing and suspenseful and intense and emotional?
Or is Blac Chyna right for once and this show has gotten very contrived and lame?
