Keeping Up With The Kardashians Recap


Keeping Up With The Kardashians” this week centered around Kylie Jenner admitting that she got her lips plumped. Throughout the entire episode, her family tries to convince Kylie that it’s time to own up to her cosmetic procedures. The whole episode 9 of season 10, in a sense, also focused on improvements of different kinds. Kim Kardashian worked on improving and relaunching her website, Khloe Kardashian had her butt lasered to remove cellulite and a stretch mark, and Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian worked on fixing up a home he bought to flip for a profit.

It all started with Kylie at an event for her hair extension company, and being asked on the red carpet how she gets her lips so full. The youngest member of the family wouldn’t fully answer but freaked out afterwards, telling Khloe and two friends, Malika and Khadijah Haqq, “No one’s ever asked me about my lips. My heart literally dropped.” She also said it was the first time anyone’s ever asked about her lips, and it made her “feel a little uncomfortable.” Khloe tried to calm down her little sister at the event, but said later to the camera, “Kylie decided to plump her lips, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that,” but noted, “If you’ve done something, it is right to cop up to it.”

It became an issue at another photoshoot where a New Zealand journalist asked her how she gets her lips so full. Instead of admitting that she gets them plumed, Kylie said she applies six different colors, acknowledging later, “I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.”

Throughout the episode, other family members discuss how they need to talk to Kylie about owning up to having her lips plumped. Over a lunch that Khloe and Kim had, the latter said, “We need to have a serious talk with her to school her with what to say.” And Khoe said if she were ever asked by a reporter, she would, of course, say Kylie had her lips plumped and not lie.

When Kim and Kendall Jenner sit down with Kylie, her older sister says, “Just be honest… it’s not that big of a deal.” Kim warns, however, when getting cosmetic procedures done to be “subtle and don’t go overboard,” adding, “I don’t want you to get carried away.” Kylie notes how the family has “eyes on us all the time,” leading to her insecurities. Later Kim convinces Kylie to stop dodging the question, and Kylie agrees she’ll just tell people, “Yes, I plump them.”

As noted earlier, Khloe also had a slight improvement done to herself. While Kim and Kendall looked on in a doctor’s office, Khloe had her behind lasered to remove cellulite and to make it smaller. Another subplot was Disick hiring Kourtney to help decorate a house he wanted to spruce up and flip. But while furniture shopping to fill the 5,000-square-foot home, Disick felt, “By the time she gets done, I’ll be losing money.” Later, Disick fires Kourtney because it’s too hard to mix their professional and personal lives. An annoyed Kourtney says she might take Disick on in the house-flipping business, cracking to him, “See you on the flip side.

One other subplot is Kim fixing up her website, and deciding to do a nude shoot for it. During the naked photo session in a desert, we learn that Kim has psoriasis. She notes at the session, “I like to lay out all my insecurities before a shoot.” Episode 9 of season 10 ended with Kylie doing a photo shoot for Teen Vogue and talking about not feeling insecure anymore.
