Khloe Kardashian Marriage Falls Apart, Rob Struggles With Depression and Weight on KUWTK Season Finale
Khloe Kardashian continued to struggle with husband Lamar Odom while brother Rob wrestled with depression and body issues on the season finale of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Things kicked off with Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick discussing Lamar’s flakiness of late, and getting pissed off when plans with the couple seemed in doubt again.
“I feel like a connection with him because he’s married to my sister, but I don’t know what goes on in that house,” admitted Kourtney, saying the pair “live in their own world” with “weird stuff going on.” Kourtney got a better idea of the issues Khloe was dealing with when Lamar’s agent called looking for him. “As many times as I have protected Lamar or dodged a bullet for him, lately everything is getting more than what I can protect or control,” she told the camera, adding, “I’m getting bombarded with questions, and I don’t know what to say.”
Rob was forced to face his own personal issues during a hike with stepbrother Brody Jenner, where the former “Hills” star expressed some concerns. “I’m starting to get worried, because Rob is kind of pushing us away a bit… I think he’s depressed,” Brody told the camera. He went on to tell Rob that people are urging him to get back into shape because it’s “affecting [his] personality.” “I just don’t want to be places,” confessed Rob, going on to tell the camera, “I’ve been holding inside a lot of issues, not just with Lamar and Khloe, but with myself, and it’s just not healthy for me.”
He continued, “It’s hard when you have everyone looking in and assuming they know what’s going on, and they don’t know half the story.” Rob and Khloe later had a serious talk about their respective problems as Lamar continued to spiral out of control. “You’ve tried so many times,” Rob said, trying to comfort his sister, but she pointed out that no one else knows that.
Khloe explained to the camera, “A lot had been going on the past couple of years, just with me and Lamar, and I made that choice myself to just keep that within my marriage, but lately it’s getting bigger than me.” “What am I supposed to do?” she asked Rob. “I’ve done everything.” Rob went on to tell Khloe he’s now “100 percent committed” to moving out, saying it’s “necessary” because he’s “in desperate need of fixing” himself and getting away from “bad energy.” “I hate to see my sister hurt,” Rob told the camera, going on to call Lamar his “best friend and brother” and “part of our family,” but stressing how much he’s “been holding in.”
He suggested to Khloe that “maybe it’s time for a change for everybody,” and she acknowledged to the camera that she understands why he wants to move and that their home “is not the best environment to be in.” “I’m at war with myself. I want to help [Lamar], but then maybe the best help is maybe stepping away,” Khloe told the camera. “And I just feel like I might need some more help, so I kind of have to tell my family.”
The finale wasn’t all a total downer, though — Kylie Jenner had a massive Sweet 16 where Drake and Big Sean performed. The planning didn’t exactly get off on the right start, however, when Kylie rejected all of her mom Kris Jenner‘s ideas for the bash. “I really want this to be my organic thoughts, and all me,” said Kylie. Problems further arose when Kris took it upon herself to reorganize the teen’s room, leading to an argument about personal space and growing up. Through tears, Kylie cried that she wanted to move out, but later decided to “be annoying” and get revenge by packing up her mom’s belongings just like Kris did to her. The stunt did not go over well, and Kylie vowed to plan her birthday party by herself.
She later gave her mom a personal invitation to the bash, and admitted to now realizing how much work is involved in planning the family’s infamously extravagant celebrations. The “Alice in Wonderland”-themed party went off without a hitch, with Kris giving Kylie credit for pulling it off and acknowledging she’s growing up. The only hiccup: Kourtney became upset at how much Scott was drinking at the shindig, and after he later disappeared for a time, she called him “disgusting” and stormed off. With help from Khloe and pals, Kourtney realized she was just being too “sensitive” and needed “to loosen up.”
And Kylie drama aside, Kris also had her hands full with… a pig! Kendall agreed to watch a pal’s pet, but left the little piglet in her mom’s care for part of the time. Cut to a lot of squealing when it found its way into the pool. “I know, I’m the worst babysitter in the world,” Kris said as she tried to dry and comfort the pig. The matriarch soon got into being a pig caregiver, buying accessories and grooming the oinker’s little hairs, leading Kendall to contemplate getting her mom a pet pig of her own. Kris even brought her new pal to Kylie’s bash, where Kendall secretly gave it back to its actual owner. It all ended well for some of the Kardashian clan… but far from well for others. Stay tuned for season 9!
