On Sunday’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the tension between Kim, Khloéand Kourtney Kardashian showed no signs of slowing down.
“Kourtney’s got a new boyfriend and a new therapist and I don’t know which one’s the problem, but she’s a different human being,” said Kim, 37, referring to Kourtney’s recent ex Younes Bendjima. “She’s so nasty to us.”
Khloé, 34, and Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick, 35, also raised their concerns about Kourtney’s new therapist — “If you’re watching, we hate you,” quipped Kim at one point — before the three sisters finally sat down to try to hash things out.
“We all have different realities of what goes on when we have our fights,” said Kim. “We all communicate really weird, and we just don’t ever express what’s really bothering us and we all walk on eggshells around each other.”
“We always just sweep things under the rug and we don’t talk anything through,” added Khloé. “That’s just what this family does.”
Kim suggested they see a therapist together, but Kourtney, 39, shot the idea down before falling silent, interrupting the conversation to edit a photo on her phone. The move infuriated both Khloé and Kim, who stormed out of the room.
“If you don’t care to fix relationships with your sisters, I can’t force you to,” said Khloé.
Kourtney broke down into tears, explaining that she felt like they didn’t have her back.
“They don’t take my feelings into consideration,” she said. “I don’t even want to be around my sisters because it just gives me anxiety.”
Kim and Khloé, meanwhile, felt that the main issue was Kourtney being unable to “handle any sort of responsibility.”
“Listen, there’s two new things in her life: boyfriend, and then her therapist,” Khloé told momager Kris Jenner. “Ever since then she’s been a raging bitch and instead of her owning it, she takes it out on everyone else. It’s so rude. It’s not how you raised any of us. We’ve said it in so many different ways. She’s so not engaged and I think that’s what infuriates everyone.”
Eventually, Kourtney agreed to a session with a family therapist.
“I’m here to do this group therapy with my sisters, which I didn’t think that we needed,” she said. “But I think that because we just don’t communicate that well, maybe having somebody else guide the conversation could be very helpful.”
“I think generally we just need to learn how to communicate together,” she continued. “And I’m the one who invented ‘mean fighting,’ just saying the meanest things possible, but I’m just not wanting to fight like that anymore. I don’t want to be mean and I don’t want to spend my time around people that are mean and putting me down.”
“You surround yourself with people that seem to be the opposite, in my opinion,” Kim said. “You’re preaching that you just want this zen life and you’re so positive and you don’t want to fight, but most of the time you’re arguing about stuff that it’s like, again? This? Everyone sees it and everyone comments on it.”
