Kardashians Recap January 7 2018


On Sunday’s new “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kim and Kourtney competed over who’s healthier, Khloe struggled to keep her temper under control, and Kris Jenner planted a secret tracking device on her mom. Get the full episode recap below!

Early in the show, Kris told family friend Jonathan Cheban that she bought her mom MJ a condo nearby because she’s getting worried about her now that she’s older. However, she still wanted to find a way to keep an eye on her 24/7. Meanwhile, Kim and Kourtney get into an argument over who ate healthier. Kourtney insisted she was healthier due to her gluten-free diet, but Kim shot back, “I just read an article that said gluten-free diets have more arsenic in it and can be bad for you.” Kourtney, however, told her sister to follow her regiment if she wanted to stay in shape.

Kim and Kourtney later decided to take a sweat test to see who’s healthier. Kim explained that they had to go into the sauna and sweat into vials in order to collect samples. A skeptical Kourtney said in a confessional, “I’ve never heard of a sweat test and it sounds gross, but we do some pretty crazy things to get the information we need, especially when it comes to beauty and health.” After using the vials to collect their sweat, Kourtney was quick to question how accurate the results would be. “I don’t want to take false results from sweat mixed with makeup and spray tan,” she noted. Kim added, “That was exhausting. I think I definitely need to start drinking more water.” They eventually agreed that getting a blood test instead would be a better idea.

Kris bought MJ a new pair of sneakers, but secretly planted a tracking device in the soles so she could keep tabs on her. “I don’t want MJ to feel like I’m breathing down her neck, but I really want to know where she is all the time so I know she’s OK,” Kris said in a confessional. Kris didn’t tell her mom what the electronic device in her shoes was actually used for, so when MJ asked, “Does it tell you your steps?” her daughter vaguely responded, “I think so.”

Later, Kim and Khloe got into a series of arguments after Kim accused her sister of making up and embellishing stories. Khloe eventually flipped out on her sister, telling her she lacked loyalty. At lunch with her friend Malika Haqq later that day, Khloe said, “I’ve been getting into an obscene amount of fights with Kim.” She added in a confessional, “Kim and I have a long history of her doubting me, but I don’t think I’m a liar.” Malika suggested that she not snap on her sister when she criticizes her, but calmly explain it bothers her. “I always want more patience,” Khloe said in a confessional. “When it comes to my sisters, I have such a short fuse.”

Kris started panicking when she couldn’t reach her mom on the phone, so she drove to her house to check on her. When she arrived, MJ was hanging out with a group of her friends and explained that she simply had her phone turned off. Meanwhile, Khloe listened to a self-help tape in the car that featured mantras to help keep her calm. She then called up Kim to apologize for snapping all the time, but her sister hung up on her.

Kim and Kourtney went to the doctor to get a blood and urine test to settle once and for all who was healthier. The doctor revealed that both were equally “clean,” noting that neither had arsenic, mercury or other toxins in their system. Kim said in a confessional, “I don’t even understand what that means honestly. The whole point of this test it to see who’s healthier, and we’re both fine.” Kim and Kourtney agreed that they should just stick to the diets that work best for them.

Later, Kourtney caught her mom looking at a tracking device on her laptop and asked what she was doing. When Kris explained that she was spying on her mom, Kourtney said, “You’re psychotic. That’s just invasive.” Kris insisted she just wants “to make sure she’s safe,” but her daughter insisted, “You can’t worry about her like this. She’s the one who taught us all how to be independent women. Let her live.” Kourtney threatened to tell MJ about the tracker if Kris didn’t do it first, so the momager later confessed to her mom that she put a tracker in her shoe. MJ laughed and understood that her daughter meant well, but added, “You should feel a little creepy about putting things in my shoe. No wonder I was limping around!”

As the episode ended, Khloe told Kim that she felt bad about yelling at her all the time, but “it stems from years and years of you not believing me.” Kim admitted she wasn’t sure why she always questioned whether or not her sister was telling the truth, and does believe she’s an honest person. “I’m sorry for my short-temper with you. I love you.” said Khloe. Kim replied, “I love you too and I’m sorry if I doubted you.”
