‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Lamar Odom Brings Khloe and Rob Together
Lamar Odom acted as a mediator for Khloe and Rob Kardashian, who’ve been feuding ever since he proposed to Blac Chyna without telling the family. Get the full recap below of Sunday’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Kim told Kourtney that her husband Kanye West was filming his new music video in Iceland, and invited her sister to tag along since the trip would coincide with her birthday. “I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland, but I just don’t know how I’ll feel being away from my kids on my birthday,” Kourtney said in a confessional, before admitting that the vacation might be good for her. Despite being hesitant to do so, Kourtney accepted her sister’s invitation. But when she later told Scott Disick that she’d be going away on her birthday, he became sad with the realization that it would be the first time in 10 years that he wouldn’t be spending Kourtney’s birthday with her.
Later, Lamar asked Khloe about the details of Rob’s upcoming nuptials, but she explained to him, “Rob hasn’t told us anything,” adding, “He doesn’t talk to me, I hear he talks to my sisters way more.” The former NBA player offered, “I just hope he’s focused. Marriage ain’t easy,” to which Khloe joked, “It’s not? Your marriage wasn’t easy?” Khloe and Lamar then called Rob to check in with him, and Lamar and him made plans to grab dinner. “I have always loved Lamar and Rob’s relationship and bond and I want them to hang out,” Khloe said in a confessional, before admitting, “but I still want my time with Rob. Rob hasn’t attempted to do anything with me.”
Scott sat down with Kris Jenner and explained that he and Kourtney had spent every one of their birthdays together for the past decade, and was considering flying to Iceland to surprise his ex on her birthday. But Kris deflected his question, saying that Kourtney just wants him to be a “good person and a great dad.” In lieu of flying to Iceland, the momager suggested, “You know what would be the best birthday present ever? Just be that fun dad and that responsible dad that she’s always praying that you will turn into.” Scott understood, but maintained, “It’s just hard sometimes when you’ve had all these memories and then they’re stopping one by one.” Later, Kim told Scott over the phone that it would probably be for the best if he didn’t show up in Iceland unannounced.
Meanwhile, Kim ran into a dilemma in Iceland of whether to spend the day supporting Kanye on the set of his music video, or celebrating Kourtney’s birthday with her. She was determined to juggle both, and so she accompanied Kanye to his costume fitting, before taking a dip in a blue lagoon with her sister and friends. Kim then told her husband that instead of spending all day on set, she and Kourtney would stop by later. The rapper was a bit disappointed, but ultimately said it was “fine.” Kim and Kourtney then spent the day sightseeing, during which Kourtney revealed that Scott had sent her a bouquet of flowers.
Lamar brought Rob to Khloe’s house for an impromptu visit, to which she asked “What’s the point of this?” Lamar asked, “Do you want to go out with Rob to dinner?” before adding, “And Blac Chyna?” But Khloe shot down the idea, saying, “No, that’s not part of the plan. It’s not Blac Chyna too… I’m not going from A to Z.” She further said in a confessional, “I need to talk to Rob first. Rob and I just need to have a private conversation and hash things out so we can just move on and get out of this awkward space.” Rob understood his sister’s concern, and assured her that just the two of them could sit down and talk. Khloe said in a confessional, “Rob and I have a long way to go, but I want my relationship back with my brother.”
