Keeping Up With Kardashians Recap Kim Apps

(E)

On Sunday’s new “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kim Kardashian was still feeling insecure after unflattering paparazzi photos from her trip to Mexico emerged. Kourtney and Khloe devised a plan to help their sister regain her confidence by deleting all the apps on her phone and disconnecting her from social media. Get the full episode recap below!

As the show opened, Kim, Kendall and Kylie all get fitted in elaborate dresses as they prepared to attend the Met Gala. Kim became very uneasy during the car ride to the event, fearing that her dress was wrinkled and she looked like a sweaty mess. Kim then asked an assistant to blow dry her dress to get the wrinkles out. “I feel like I’m going to throw up,” she said as she made her way out of the car and headed for the red carpet.

Meanwhile, Kourtney decided to plan a birthday surprise for boyfriend Younes Bendjima, but started acting oddly while struggling to wrap up the gift she bought him. Khloe said in a confessional, “I know Kourt has been out on the dating scene recently. She’s planning a little birthday surprise tonight. I don’t really know the details tonight but she’s like doing this whole exchange. She’s putting like a hotel key into this wallet.” Khloe added, “I’ve never known Kourtney to be this giddy ever in my life. I’ve never known Kourtney to plan anything.” As Kourtney nervously wrapped her gift, her friend Jonathan Cheban told her, “Just be fun. You’re so fu**ing weird about it.” Khloe continued in a confessional, “I know a little about this guy but I’m not gonna ask a lot of questions because she’s super awkward. She will shut down.” Kourtney then asked if she should put her gift in the box or just hand it to him. After Khloe told her sister she should obviously box it up, Khloe then wondered whether or not to put a bow on it.

Later at lunch, Kim brought up her Mexico photos, prompting Jonathan to tell her, “You have a real insecurity problem lately.” “You know what it is, that Mexico trip really fu**ed me up,” Kim explained. Khloe added in a confessional, “Kim looked absolutely amazing at the Met Ball. Even though I hoped those photos would give her another surge of confidence and make her realize it was just bad photos in Mexico, it seems like the Mexico pictures are never-ending.” Khloe further theorized a lot of Kim’s insecurity is also stemming from her Paris robbery because she was “mocked and made fun of” following the incident, and didn’t want to be “ridiculed” by the public again. Unfortunately, Kim later became convinced she looked old in a new batch of paparazzi pictures.

Kourtney and Khloe got together and decided they needed to help get Kim out of her rut by “disconnecting her from all social media” so she could’t look at photos or comments. The girls felt Kim needed to “remember how hot she is” in order to start feeling good again. As Kim walked into the room, Khloe exclaimed, “Wow, you look gorgeous! Look at that bod!” Khloe then attempted to distract Kim by asking her to help organize her closet upstairs, while Kourtney asked to borrow her phone to “call the kids.” “Kim is normally not this insecure,” Khloe said in a confessional. Kourtney added, “If she just didn’t have access to social media or stopped looking at the blogs, I think that she would start to feel better.” “I feel like one of the best things she did for herself after her Paris incident was she really detached herself from the Internet and social media,” Khloe noted. “I think we kind of need to step in and do something like that so she realizes this does not matter and we need to take that bullsh*t out of her life.”

While rummaging around Khloe’s closet, Kim began insulting her sister’s wardrobe. She first insisted the pile Khloe planned to throw away the coolest clothing she had, then asked, “So you’re keeping this?” referring to Khloe’s sequined jackets. “I like sequins,” said her sister, who added in a confessional, “Why did I even offer this? It’s probably the worst idea I’ve ever had because now I’m being tortured.” Kim then quipped about another item, “This is ‘Jersey Shore’ on another level.” Kim then headed back downstairs to get her phone but Kourtney wasn’t done deleting the apps just yet. “What are you doing?” Kim asked suspiciously as her sister frantically tapped on the phone. Kim then grabbed back her phone and exclaimed, “You deleted my apps?!” Kourtney played dumb by asking, “Oh, did I?” “That’s how I learn all my news,” Kim told her sister. “It’s like the healthiest thing for you,” Khloe said, while Kourtney added, “You just need to live your life and be happy. Why do you need to see this nonsense?” “You guys are right,” Kim admitted. “I just need to let this not bother me. I don’t need this negativity in my life.” As for permanently deleting her apps, however, Kim said, “I’ll live like this for like two days and see how I feel.”

Kris later surprised Khloe with mother/daughter time by taking her to a wine tasting. The momager soon became tipsy and got in the mood to make prank phony calls. She first rang a random hotel and said to the concierge, “Hello, can I please have Khloe Kardashian’s room?” The employee informed her that she wasn’t listed as a guest, but the momager replied, “I think she’s under another name. I think it’s like Funny Bunny or Fred Flinstone. That’s the two that I know she normally goes under.” Kris’ second call was to a bakery to find out what pastries Khloe buys there. She asked what Khloe ordered for Thanksgiving, but the employee was confused. Kris then began asking about strawberry rhubarb, before adding, “Do you happen to now of a a toeologist? My foot is killing me!” The employee, once again, had no idea what Kris was talking about. “He gets an A for customer service,” Khloe joked after her mom hung up the phone.
