Kim Kardashian rushed to Kanye West’s side after hearing news of his hospitalization on Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Get the full episode recap below.

The episode picked up where last week left off, with Kim in New York City getting a phone call from one of West’s friends saying he was having an emotional and mental breakdown. “I get a call from one of Kanye’s friends and my heart drops,” Kim said in a confessional. On the phone, she asked, “But what is he… This is like, serious?” She added on camera, “They’re not telling me anything and I am so scared and I don’t know what to do.” She then told Kanye’s friend on the phone, “Oh my god, I just got to New York.” After hanging up, Kim told Kourtney and Kris Jenner, “He’s crying on the phone to me and he wouldn’t say what’s wrong and I’m like, ‘Tell me what’s wrong.’ I just don’t know what to do.”

Later, Kim told her mom, “I just feel bad because it’s going to be so public.” The girls were in New York to attend an event honoring the late Robert Kardashian Sr., but Kim told the momager she’d have to pull out of the event. “I think he really needs me and I have to get home,” said Kim. “I think that’s the right thing to do.” Kris agreed, and Kim got on a plane back home to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Kris, Kourtney and Khloe accepted the honorary award on behalf of their late husband and father. Khloe noted in a confessional, “I know that Kim’s overwhelmed, but I know my dad is with her.”

Kris later told Kendall and Kylie that Vogue would be reviewing their new clothing line, the Kendall + Kylie collection. “That’s really terrifying,” Kendall told her mom. She added in a confessional, “This line is something very personal to Kylie and I and if they don’t like it, I don’t know how I’m going to feel about it. I’m nervous.” Kris then noted, “Getting a review from Vogue and having it be positive would mean everything to the girls.”

Khloe and Kourtney later asked Kim for an update on Kanye’s medical condition, but she told them, “I’m not in the mood to get into it right now. I’m emotionally drained and exhausted but it will be OK.” She went on to say the rapper was resting and taking much needed time off, and felt “that will be really good for him.”

Kendall sat down with Kylie to discuss the situation with Vogue reviewing their fashion line.. “F**k! I don’t know why I’m so nervous,” she told her sister, adding in a confessional, “I’m really proud of the line, but I’ve worked really hard to be taken seriously and recognized in Vogue and in the fashion world. If this doesn’t go as well as we hope, it might tarnish some things in the modeling world, so it’s even more frightening.” Kylie asked her sister if she’s having “second thoughts” about the clothing line review, and Kendall explained, “It just freaks me out. Everyone wants an excuse to talk sh*t and I don’t want this to be that.” Kylie assured her sister she felt “confident” about the line because they “worked so hard on it,” adding, “There’s no way they’re not going to love it.” Sometime later, Kris showed Kendall the Vogue review and exclaimed, “They loved every single piece!” Kendall said in a confessional, “I was really bracing myself for a bad review, but instead we got a really good one.”

Khloe confronted her best friend Malika Haqq about spending all of her time with her new boyfriend, “Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Magro-Ortiz, who she met while filming the reality show “Famously Single.” When Malika showed up to her photo shoot, Khloe asked, “Where the hell have you been? I thought you couldn’t come here today because you were with your boyfriend?” Malika explained, “I told you I would if I could and I’m here.” She further told her friend that since she’s now in a relationship, “Some things have to change, I’m sorry.” She then insisted Khloe should understand since she also has a boyfriend, NBA player Tristan Thompson. “I took a back seat, the same way [you’re] taking a back seat now.” But Khloe shot back, “I don’t like the fabrications of it all. How many times do I call you and you never answer my phone calls? You’re trying to say how I’ve changed when I do try to make an effort, so let’s not play that game.” Eventually, however, the two girls decided they both need to make an effort to hang out more.

As the episode ended, Kim, Khloe and Malika sat down for dinner after ordering in Chinese food, and Kim proceeded to read her fortune cookie. “Your troubles will soon cease and good fortune will smile upon you,” she read aloud, adding, “Thank you lord!”
