The tension in the room between Kim Kardashian, Khole Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian was so thick during the Season 18 premiere that you could cut it with a knife.
‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ returned for a drama-packed premiere for Season 18. During tonight’s premiere, Kim and Kourtney found themselves in a fistfight after a squabble about their work ethics.
The friction between the sisters started at the beginning of the episode when Kourtney was struggling to get back to work after spending a month in Italy with her children. “I’m also not only shooting for our show today, but I’m also shooting Architectural Digest for my home. So, I’m just being torn in a lot of different directions. And, after being off for a month, it just gives me anxiety knowing that I’m going to be having no real privacy. There’s probably going to be 40 people in my house today,” Kourtney shared in the confessional.
She then opened up to Khole and revealed that she doesn’t feel like filming again. Kourtney’s confession threw Khloe off since the mother of three had the choice to quit. “She could’ve made the decision to quit, she chose to not quit. But she’s here today, exactly where we left off. It’s affecting my mood that she’s so miserable that we’re here doing our job—that she has agreed to,” Khloe said.
Kourtney also had an argument with Kim about a long bill from the vacation they went on recently. When Khloe confronted Kourtney about her “negativity” and “bad vibes”, she begged her to move on past it because she was just joking. The tension between the three sisters, especially between Kim and Kourtney, blew out of proportion towards the end of the episode when Kim walked into the room talking about how her mom (Kris Jenner) was trying to bribe her into walking Balmain’s show in Paris instead of Kylie Jenner.
Kim shared that she and Khloe work their butts off even if they are in their “death beds”. She then went on to question Kendall and Kourtney’s work ethics. While Kendall was quick to shut her down, Kourtney weighed in about her work.
“You act like I don’t do s**t! You have this narrative in your mind… I will literally f**k you up if you mention it again. But, honestly, change the narrative in your mind. I work my f*****g a** off.” Kim smirked at her comeback but this fueled Kourtney, who then threw her water bottle at Kim and then lunged at her.
“I will literally f**k you up,” Kourtney said. Retaliating, Kim said, “What the f**k is wrong with you? Don’t ever come at me like that. I swear to God, I’ll punch you in your face.”
While Khole tried to diffuse the situation and calm the two down, there were scratches and punches being thrown around. Kim managed to slap Kourtney a couple of times too.
While it is not known if and how the sisters come out from this, fans on Twitter claim they have had enough of Kourtney and her “woe is me attitude”. Some also added that their glad Kim smacked Kourtney.
“So glad Kim smacked her around. So sick of her woe is me attitude. She ruins the show and she’s boring,” a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, “Im over Kortney! Obviously she has some things to work on, but omggg stoppp it already!! I can’t (sic).”
“Kourtney is so whiney. i swear i lose brain cells listening to her complain at literally everything. #KUWTK, (sic)” a fan shared. While another said, “Kourtney should just leave the show if she’s just gonna b***h the entire time. #KUWTK.”
“#KUWTK I’m still sick of Kourtney and her attitude. Stop filming, no one will miss your constant whining,” a fan wrote. Another shared, “Kourtney kept yelling ‘Do it or shut the f*ck up’ and Kim not only did it but shut Kourtney’s mouth real quick too. #KUWTK.”
“Kourtney started that fight. Im happy Kim been standing up for herself bc Kourtney been a bully for years. #KUWTK, (sic)” a fan added.
