‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Kim Manages Sisters After Kris Gets Into Car Accident
As the episode began, Khloe suggested to Kim and Khloe that they throw a special baby shower for Rob and Blac Chyna because they’re going to be out of the country for her official shower. Khloe also told the girls she was feeling neglected by momager Kris, who she felt was slacking on her duties as a manager.
Later, the girls got a phone call saying their mom had gotten into a car accident, and quickly rushed to the scene to find Kris surrounded by police and a wrecked car. “It happened so fast,” Kris said in a confessional. “Within minutes my kids were by my side, which comforted me so much.” Kris assured the girls she wasn’t hurt, but was shaken up and upset that her car was totaled. “It’s just a car, we’ll buy a new one. We can’t buy a new mommy,” Khloe told her.
Kim later offered to take over some of the workload from a stressed-out Kris, who had complained post-accident, “I’m so exhausted. Everything hurts.” Kris then asked Kim to help schedule an event in Australia for Kylie, but warned it would be difficult. “It’s a lot of details,” she told her daughter. “You’d probably lose focus in five minutes.” Kim responded, “Why don’t you just chill? I’ll help you,” and explained she could find someone to do Kylie’s hair and makeup, as well as book a hotel and flight. “I’ve joked a lot that I could be my sisters’ manager better than my mom could be,” Kim said in a confessional. “I think I do give a lot of good creative input. I feel like I could totally handle this.”
Kim’s first order of business was to help Khloe sell her fitness merchandise, so she set up a meeting with a marketing team, and from there she attended Kylie’s fashion shoot. Kim admitted in confessional that she was having difficulty “juggling” all of her responsibilities, adding, “I’m super overwhelmed. Managing five girls is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be.” To make matters worse, Kim forget about the meeting she set up for Khloe’s fitness merchandise and left her sister to do it alone. Kim apologized for being a no-show, but assured her sister she’d make it up to her.
Scott brought Rob to a daycare center to help him prepare for becoming a new dad. First, Rob tried consoling a crying boy, but his methods failed. Scott then sat down on the coach and began reading a magazine while forcing Rob to watch all of the kids. “This is for you to start to understand the responsibilities of children,” Scott told him. “I already understand.” Rob next had to clean up a mess the kids had made, and also chase after a little girl who tried to run outside. At the end of the session, Scott told Rob, “You’re a goodhearted person and you’re gonna be a goodhearted dad. That you can’t teach.” He added in a confessional, “He definitely has the heart of a parent and I think he’s going to be an unbelievable one.”
Kim later told Kourtney and Khloe that Rob and Chyna were fighting, and now he didn’t want to go to the baby shower they were throwing for them. “He said he doesn’t want to celebrate a shower because this pregnancy has been really bad for him and really awful for him,” she explained. But Khloe insisted, “Our brother is coming to the shower. That’s crazy.” She then suggested they try to convince him to attend for their mom, if for no one else in the family, because “she does so much for him.” Kourtney noted in a confessional, “She’s not going to take it well if he doesn’t show up.”
But as the entire family gathered for the planned baby shower, Rob called up Kim and said he wasn’t coming. She broke the news to everyone, and Kris looked disappointed while an angry Khloe said, “F**k Rob. He ruins everything.” The next day, Rob called up his mom to apologize and told her to go into her backyard. When she walked outside, she found several balloons that spelled out “I Love You Mom.” He told her, “I’m sorry about the baby shower. Hopefully we can get the entire family together soon.”
The whole family later gathered once again for a rescheduled baby shower, and Rob and Chyna showed up this time. “I love you guys and thank you for this,” he told the family. He admitted n a confessional he felt bad about missing the first party, adding, “Sometimes when me and Chyna aren’t doing so well, I let it get the best of me and I need to work on that.” As the episode ended, the family showered Rob and Chyna with baby gifts.
