‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Scott Disick Struggles To Move On Without Kourtney Kardashian
Early on in the episode, Khloe and Kris Jenner helped furnish Lamar Odom’s new house so it would be ready when he was released from the hospital, where he had been staying following a drug overdose months prior. Also moving into a new house was Scott, who decided to buy a place in Calabasas to be closer to Kourtney and their kids. But when Khloe came to visit, Scott admitted he was “depressed,” despite his beautiful new place, adding, “I’m single and I live here by myself.” Khloe then told Scott a story about kicking Rob and Blac Chyna out of her house after finding them sleeping there without her knowledge.
Scott and Kris went out to lunch to catch up, and he told her he was “emotionally f*cked up,” but happy to be living close to Kourtney and the kids. The Kardashian matriarch assured Scott he was starting to make good choices and was back on the right track. “At the end of the day, I still love Kourtney and that’s what’s important to me,” Scott added in a confessional. Kris and Scott later bonded while taking a cooking class together to learn how to make healthy meals for his kids.
While on a press tour in New York City, Khloe admitted she was having a really difficult time being away from Lamar. She then called her mom and complained about getting aggressive texts from Caitlyn Jenner for talking about her during her “Howard Stern Show” interview. Khloe said that Caitlyn had told her to “get a life and to shut up,” but Khloe insisted in a confessional she said “nothing bad or harmful” about Caitlyn. She then told her mom, “She can tell me to f*ck off all she wants. I don’t have a relationship with her. I’m done!”
Kris then called Caitlyn to discuss the situation, asking, “What’s going on with Khloe?” Caitlyn responded, “She’s out there talking sh*t about me… You don’t go on ‘Howard Stern’ and call me a liar!” Kris said she didn’t believe Khloe meant to intentionally hurt her, adding, “We’re the parents, we have to be the bigger [people].” But when Caitlyn began criticizing Khloe further, Kris yelled, “What do you think I said to you about Vanity Fair?! All you said was negative sh*t, so now you know how I feel!” Kris then started crying and said, “You’re making this so hard… Khloe isn’t out to get you. You were her dad since she was five-years-old. Give her a break!”
Kim called Kylie to tell her Blac Chyna posted an Instagram photo of an iPad Rob supposedly bought her, but Kendall became suspicious it was the same one she had gotten him. Kendall’s suspicions are confirmed when she discovers the gift also included a pen and keyboard for the iPad. “I gave that to him for Christmas!” she shouted, and Kylie told Kim over the the phone, “You’re gonna die right now. He re-gifted Kendall’s gift.” “I’m so mad. I would have given that to someone else!” Kendall said, adding in a confessional, “Rob is dating someone that has kind of had a bad history with my family, and he fully re-gifted my gift.” An angry Kendall then called Rob asking for her gift back, but he shot back, “That’s the first time you’ve ever got me a gift your entire life!” adding, “You’re hilarious. Buy it yourself, you moron.”
Kris and Kourtney helped Scott shop for kitchen appliances for his new house. When the two women disagree over what color towels he should buy, Scott Jokes, “I do trust [Kourtney], she did run my life for 11 years.” Kourtney said in a confessional, “When it comes to Scott, I’m not looking to get back together anytime soon.” Kourtney added that she doesn’t have “specific boundaries set,” but believes it’s alright to help out her ex pick out stuff for his new house as a friend. Scott, however, became upset when Kourtney abruptly left to hang out with Khloe without helping him finish shopping.
Later, Kris had dinner with Kim, Khloe and Kylie, who told her she needs to stop “babying” Rob. Khloe revealed she had kicked him out of her house, and didn’t want their mom buying him his own place. Kim told Kris, “You should not be paying for your son, that is almost 30 years old, to buy a house,” to which Khloe added, “Drop him. Cut the cord.” But the momager shot back, “All of you can f*ck off, and go think of something else to talk about. I’ve seen you guys through so much sh*t that you do that I have to f*cking put up with.” She then mocks Kim by saying, ‘I’m married for 72 days.’ Really? That was normal.” Kris continued, “You guys can do anything you want and it’s okay and I’m supposed to accept it all. And I’m gonna do the same thing for him. So stop judging me!”
Despite getting into a fight the night before, Kris still helped Khloe put the finishing touches on Lamar’s house. Khloe admitted she was incredibly grateful, giving her mom a big hug and saying, “Without you, I don’t know what I would do. I think we’re all very verbally abusive to you and we need to stop doing it.” Khloe later told her sisters they shouldn’t be so hard on their mom, and they agreed.
Kourtney and her kids, Kris and all of the sisters were supposed to go to Scott’s house for a family dinner, but he went missing. “There’s definitely times where he’ll take a few step forwards, and then a few step backwards,” Kourtney said in a confessional. “It’s this cycle that’s been going on for years, and that’s why I finally had to step out of it.” Kourtney later found out that Scott had been hanging out with Tyga, and told the family, “He needs to grow up. Not just for me, but for his kids.”
