On Sunday’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kris Jenner became furious with Caitlyn Jenner after reading a copy of her new memoir, in which she reveals private details about their marriage. Get the full episode recap below!

Early on in the show, Rob Kardashian posted a series of distressing Snapchat videos in which he reveals Blac Chyna moved out of their house with their baby daughter, Dream. Kim and Corey Gamble went to Rob’s house to check on him, and Rob assured them he didn’t feel “suicidal,” but “wanted people to know that I’m hurt and this is fu**ed up.” He added, “I bet money she does not come back to me.” Kim told her brother, “I’ve always been super cool with her. I have a different relationship with her than what you guys have with Kylie and I always hear her out and stuff, but just seeing the motives is what’s hurtful.” Rob noted, “That’s what I need to know from her in person,” but Kim told him, “She’ll never tell you!”

Kim added in an on-camera confessional, “I’ve always felt like them as a couple just isn’t that healthy and I think they know that too. Rob can be really irrational and he just has to learn to really take responsibility for himself and not blame Chyna.” But Rob continued venting his frustration, saying about Chyna, “You had a baby with me. I would expect you to be in love with me… I wouldn’t expect that to be lies and fake.” Kim added on-camera, “It’s so clear what this relationship is and that they’re just not meant to be with each other.” The next day, however, Rob and Chyna made up and he traveled with her to a nightclub appearance in New York City.

Khloe said in a confessional, “Apparently Rob and Chyna are back together and that makes me sad for Rob.” The sisters called Rob regarding the situation with Chyna, and after he confirmed they were on good terms again, Khloe told him, “She texted all your sisters and said she’s disgusted by you and ready to leave you. You’re staying in something so dark and toxic?” Kim added, “We just think that it’s a really toxic relationship and we’d love you to focus on being a dad and focus on yourself.” But Rob got angry at the suggestion he break up with Chyna and told the girls, “You guys are speaking out of your ass. Stop being stupid.” After he hung up the phone, Kylie offered, “He’s so delusional.”

Kourtney later spoke to Scott Disick about Rob and Chyna’s complicated relationship, telling him that her brother wanted to film another season of their reality show, “Rob & Chyna,” but she thought it was a bad idea. “I think he wants to do it for the wrong unhealthy reasons, thinking that it’s hanging on to his relationship when it’s not,” Kourtney said. Later, Rob sat down with his mom and insisted he wants to be in a relationship with Chyna despite the family’s concerns about the model being bad for him. “Her and I are completely fine right now,” said Rob, and Kris agreed to let her son make his own decision regarding his love life. Rob later wrote the entire family an email letting them know he was grateful they cared about his well-being, but was “working through [his] issues” with Chyna.

Later, Caitlyn called Kris and suggested they get together. The momager was hesitant, but ultimately agreed, adding in a confessional, “My emotions are definitely a roller coaster when it comes to Cait… For the sake of my kids, I’m really trying to be a good friend.” The former Olympian then stopped by Kris’s house to deliver a copy of her new memoir, The Secrets of My Life, and the ex-couple ended up chatting over a bottle of wine. Kris noted in a confessional she believed Caitlyn and her were taking “a really positive step in a great direction” by being cordial with one another. The transgender star then told her ex-wife that she had left her gun at the home and now wanted it back. “The only problem that I have with the gun is it’s registered in my old name,” Caitlyn explained. “I’ve got to get that changed… But in some states, I think if you go through gender confirmation surgery it’s the only way you can.” On that note, Kris exclaimed, “What? Would you have done that?” After pressing the topic further, Caitlyn shot back, “You know what, don’t even go down this road cause I’m not talking about it.” Caitlyn tried to change the subject, but Kris then quipped, “I always wondered why you peed sitting down.”

Kris later told daughters Kim and Khloe that she read Caitlyn’s book, “and basically the only nice thing she had to say was that I was great socially at a party one time.” Kim responded, “But yet, he stayed married to you the longest. So, it doesn’t make sense.” The momager added, “None of it makes sense. Everything she says is all made up.” Kris went on to explain how Caitlyn claims in her memoir that Kris knew her then-husband felt like a woman while they were married, but the momager insists that wasn’t the case. Kim said in a confessional, “My mom’s been putting in so much effort trying so hard to have a good relationship for their kids together. Caitlyn has every right to feel however she feels, but why bring my mom into it one more time? I just feel so bad for my mom.”

Kris went on to note that she’s “really tried hard to improve the relationship and spend a little bit of time” with Caitlyn, but she’s tired of opening her “home and my heart to a person who doesn’t give a sh*t. So, I’m done.” She added, “I’ve never been so angry and disappointed in somebody in my whole life. I’m done!”
