Kourtney Kardashian was left in tears on Sunday’s episode of KUWTK after Scott Disick introduced their children to new girlfriend Sofia Richie, leading to a dramatic war of words between the exes.
The 39-year-old reality star confronted Scott and told him she felt blindsided by the move despite the children already having met her then boyfriend, Younes Bendjima.
‘The thought of my kids being introduced to another woman and having somebody else in their lives, it is hard for me and hard for them. There is a lot going on for them,’ Kourtney told the cameras.
The drama unfolded when Kim called Kourtney and found her sister was upset and crying.
Kourtney refused to speak about it on the phone and insisted on texting her sister and told her that Scott, 35, had introduced their three children to girlfriend Sofia, 20, despite an agreement they had made in therapy.
‘I think it is just more of a principle that they made this rule and have been going to co-parenting therapy together, and I want to be there too support Kourtney and Scott, but it is really their thing and I do not get involved,’ explained Kim.
Scott then phoned momager Kris Jenner, 62, and complained to her about the same issue and explained how Kourtney had reacted badly to the news.
He explained to Kris that they had discussed the issue with the therapist and agreed to wait until after the holidays to do it.
‘I don’t understand why she can introduce her boyfriend to the kids but you can’t introduce your girlfriend, because she is my daughter I don’t want to go against her, but I see your point, too, so I would ask her why it isn’t mutual,’ said Kris.
Kim then told her mom she also agreed with Scott.
‘But it’s Kourtney and she has to be difficult,’ said Kim.
‘She is kinda difficult these days, she is like a little rebel,’ agreed Kris.
Kourtney then told the cameras how difficult the situation was.
‘I know it can be confusing and it makes me upset especially as we sat in front of a therapist and said what we thought was best for the kids, we felt like a lot of changes have been made lately and this was not the best time.
‘Scott and I went to therapy today for the first time since he introduced the kids to his girlfriend and it is hard to go when I am the only person who is doing what we speak about and following.’
After the therapy session Scott and Kourtney sat down to hash out their differences and he started by telling her he was ‘extremely appreciative’ of the relationship he continued to have with her family.
‘Not when you do just whatever you want,’ she told him icily.
‘What is doing whatever I want? Living my life the exact same way you are living it?’ he asked her.
‘It is called giving someone a heads up and having a respectful conversation, giving someone that respect,’ she told him.
Scott told her that despite his best efforts not everything always went as planned.
‘That could also just be an excuse. I make sacrifices all the time and you are not following through with the things you say you are going to do and then you just go and do whatever you want and I am not okay with it,’ she replied.
Scott then asked Kourtney if she felt she was a ‘difficult’ person or ‘overly controlling’ and she told him she was not.
‘No. I did have to be with you in our relationship though,’ she told him.
Scott then asked her if there was any chance she was in denial about anything and she said no.
Scott then told her it was okay to have high expectations for people but that those expectations could not always be met.
‘I understand that I am a perfectionist and I actually try not to be controlling,’ she said.
‘You are something,’ said an irritated Scott.
‘I would bet you $1 billion there is not a human being you know that wouldn’t go with what I just said, you are in denial’ he told her.
‘Don’t paint me out to be some way that I am not. We have rules, kids need rules, it is not hard or complicated, I am not crazy,’ she said.
‘You are out of mind if you think I am wrong,’ Scott replied.
‘We agreed to something and you have to follow it,’ she said.
Kourtney told the cameras that Scott knew she hated being called controlling as that is how she had to be in their relationship.
‘It has nothing to do with what is going on here. He just tries to get everyone on his side and play the victim and it is really not fair,’ she said.
Kourtney told him he had to follow the guidelines and Scott walked off saying, ‘You’re sick girl.’
Kris then spoke to Scott about his issues with Kourtney.
‘She fires these missiles at me and I told her I was trying to do the best I can,’ Scott told her.
‘I think she is trying her best to cope. When Kourtney gets upset she often responds the same way I do, which isn’t pretty. I think when it comes to ones kids and you are the mom and they live primarily with her, you have a great deal of control and everything the way you want it.
‘I remember when my kids used to go to their dad’s. It is the hardest thing in the world to surrender and being a mom is the biggest job of your life and the hardest thing you will ever do. Her response and reaction, although it is not what you would have loved, you have to remember that it is hard on everybody.’
Scott said he realized after his talk with Kris that he should have been clear with Kourtney and that he now realized it was hard on his ex.
‘I truly don’t want Kourtney to hurt about anything,’ he told her.
Kris told him it took her five years after her divorce to find a ‘happy place’ where everyone was happy.
Kourtney then tried her hand at horse riding as sister Kendall showed off her more advanced equestrian skills.
She then told her sister about her latest therapy with Scott and admitted that it had not ‘gone well.’
Kendall asked if Scott had brought Sofia around more and Kourtney said she was not sure but that he had apologized to her over the situation.
‘Ultimately we are going to have disagreements but I think we do a really amazing job of getting along and working together and trying to do our best to put the kids first,’ Kourtney told the cameras.
There was also drama of another kind as the family appeared on the Family Feud gameshow.
‘We are literally obsessed,’ Kim told the cameras as she recalled their previous appearance on the show.
‘We have to win and we have to do this.’
Kourtney told them that she thought none of them should go on the show as Kris joked they would probably be up against Amber Rose and Blac Chyna.
At the Calamigos Ranch, Kourtney and Kim took out a paddle boat and Kim complained her wrist was hurting when she used her phone and took selfies.
She ultimately had to get producers of the show to take selfies for her.
Kim then went to see orthopedic surgeon Dr Levi Harrison to get her sore wrists checked out.
He looked at her and explained she had symptoms of carpal tunnel and she admitted it was sore when she took selfies.
‘It is a term I have called selfie-wrist, actually its called Kim Kardashian wrist,’ joked the doctor as he explained why she was in pain and insisted she do exercises.
Kim told the cameras she needed her wrists to be in good shape for Family Feud.
‘I am not going to lose because I can’t hit the button,’ she told the cameras.
At Khloe’s house the girls played the Family Feud video game to audition for their team and Kim joked she wanted them to play against the Hilton family.
Kourtney told the cameras that Kim took it all too seriously and she did not want to be on the show.
Kim then told Kendall how excited she was for Family Feud as she roped the model into taking part.
The girls then talked about their behinds as Kourtney poked fun at Kim’s.
‘She likes having a big butt, I’m not saying anything offensive,’ said Kourtney
‘No I don’t, I cry about it daily,’ said Kim.
‘I used to have the best a**,’ said pregnant Khloe.
Kris then told them that the Hilton family had pulled out of the show and Kris wondered if Kanye’s family would play in their place.
Kim said she thought he would but she would have to jump ship to her husband’s team and suggested roping in friend Jonathan Cheban for the Kardashian team.
He told them he was in Miami at a food event and Kim agreed to fly him over.
‘This is so perfect. Kanye is so good, I should definitely go over to the West side, I am not going on Family Feud again to lose,’ said Kim.
Kim then told her mother about her wrist issues and having a ‘selfie-assistant’ from the TV show crew.
But backstage there was drama as Kim’s grandmother actually showed up, which meant no place for Jonathan.
‘I love my grandmother obviously and in a perfect world she should be on the team but how do I explain that to Jonathan when he got on a plane at the drop of a dime. I don’t want to waste someone’s time like that,’ said a worried Kim.
‘I it such a clusterf***. There is real family feuds going on backstage at Family Feud,’ said Khloe.
Kim called Kanye in to try and resolve the situation, but the rapper was not feeling it.
‘Jonathan’s a big boy, we have enough people,’ said Kanye.
‘I love Jonathan but I’m not kicking my family off for Jonathan when it’s their first time on TV, Jonathan’s always on TV,’ he told them bluntly.
In the end Kris spoke her mother, MJ, to try and fix it.
‘Kim created this mess and I have to clean it up, just another fire to put out,’ said an exasperated Kris.
Steve Harvey then got involved and brought in the executive producer to sort the situation and in the end they let the Kardashians have six players to make everyone happy.
‘There would have been a brawl in here after this hell,’ joked Jonathan.
Kendall admitted to being ‘so nervous’ about going on the show as the family got competitive and the Kardashians went on to win the show.
The show finished with Kim telling the cameras that the wrist exercises had helped her overcome the carpal tunnel syndrome, despite her family poking fun at her for it.
‘It’s not good for business,’ said Scott.
‘I know so I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do,’ said Kim.
‘I did it. I limited taking selfies and SnapChats and my wrist is better,’ she added.
Kris told her that she still ‘had a bit of an obsession.’
‘It is legit how I make my money, so you should be begging me to stay on,’ she told her mother.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians will return next week on the E! network.
