‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Family Fights With Rob Over Blac Chyna Emoji
The Kardashian sisters got into a fight with their brother Rob on Sunday’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after his fiancee, Blac Chyna, released an emoji resembling Kylie Jenner getting slapped across the face. Get the full recap below!
As Gossip Cop reported, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” aired a mini-recap last week that teased the drama to come after the family discovers what appears to be an emoji of an animated Kylie getting slapped in the face by Chyna’s hand. The new episode began with Khloe and Kourtney speaking to their friend Jonathan Cheban about the family’s relationship with Chyna. Khloe admitted she didn’t celebrate Mother’s Day with Kris because Rob and Chyna were at the party, explaining, “There’s a lot of tension unresolved with my brother.” But Kourtney did attend the Mother’s Day party and said “everyone was totally fine and got along.” She even revealed having felt Chyna’s pregnant belly, further noting in an on-camera confessional, “My brother’s having his first kid. What am I going to do except support him?”
Later, Lamar Odom told Khloe he planned on going away to a basketball camp for a few months, but she wasn’t happy about the idea. “I want to keep Lamar in a positive space, surrounded by positive people,” she said in a confessional. “Basketball is obviously Lamar’s passion and love, but going to a basketball camp is a big step and I don’t want to set him up for failure.” She further admitted, “There’s not a lot of trust there.”
Kim told Kourtney that she and Chyna had a cordial phone conversation, during which the model revealed “she’s doing animated emojis,” which would be dubbed “Chymojis.” Chyna wanted to let Kim know about her emojis because Kim had similarly released a collection of her own “Kimojis.” Kim told her sister that Chyna axed the idea to have an emoji depicting her “kicking a tiger, like for Tyga,” adding, “I think it’s super cool for Chyna just to give me the heads up.” Kim said Chyna was “so friendly” during the phone call and acted “totally normal as if nothing ever happened,” despite their past feud. Kourtney noted in a confessional, “It’s nice that she’s running [the emojis] by Kim who’s the original Kimoji inventor.”
But shortly later, Kourtney discovered the “slapping” emoji, and told her stylists about the situation regarding Chyna. “It sent me over the edge,” she divulged while getting her makeup done. Kourtney said she was “in a mood” after learning about the emoji and was gonna call Chyna to confront her, “but then Kylie was like, ‘No, just call Rob.’” Kourtney agreed, “I don’t want to yell at a pregnant person,” but she did yell at Rob, and added in a confessional, “This is the first time that made me question Chyna’s intentions.” Kourtney revealed that during her talk with Rob, he insisted the emoji wasn’t supposed to be Kylie, but she had her doubts he was being honest. “Just when everybody was welcoming Chyna into the family this comes out,” she added.
Khloe later asked Kylie, “Aren’t you upset that Chyna made an emoji about you?” but Kylie wasn’t convinced the emoji even looked like her, saying the animated girl had “thick brows, side bangs and purple lips,” and that she had never wore her hair in that same style. “I really think it looks like this girl that [Chyna] hates that she had a public fight with,” Kylie told her sister, adding in a confessional, “I know everyone is really upset, but I talked to Chyna and I really don’t think the emojis are of me.” She added, “There’s so much misunderstanding going on… I’m really tired of my family fighting with Rob over every little thing.”
Kim also thought the family should smooth things over with her brother and his pregnant fiancee, and so she sat down with Kourtney to try and mediate her conflict with Rob. Kourtney admitted she and Rob hadn’t spoken since she yelled at him over the phone, to which Kim responded, “I cannot believe you haven’t talked to him since then and I cannot believe he hasn’t cared enough to call you. I feel like this is so ridiculous and we all need to just get over it.” Kourtney admitted she could relate to the family not being accepting of a significant other, noting, “I know what it’s like to be having your first baby and people aren’t supportive. It took years for people to like Scott.” Kourtney further confessed on-camera that she had overreacted and should have calmly asked Rob about the situation instead of assuming the worst and yelling at him. Kim decided to try and get the two on the phone together to patch things up, but Rob didn’t answer her phone call.
However, Kim later visited Rob in person to sit with him while he spoke to Kourtney over the phone. She dialed up her sister and then handed the phone to Rob, who told Kourtney he didn’t appreciate her “negative assumptions” and preferred she talk to him “normally and calmly.” Kourtney apologized for “making accusations,” and he accepted, saying they shouldn’t be fighting over “petty” things. Kourtney further assured her brother, “I’m excited for this new chapter in your life.”
