Last night's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York focused on some events we saw play out months ago in real life, because these girls are celebrities and all.
Kim taking it all off for W Magazine (and feigning horror and how nude she looked in the final issue) and Scott Disick's nightclub fight were both shown last night.
Our staff member reviews all the action on both fronts here:
We're all in agreement that Kourtney & Kim Take New York is just as scripted as the other Kardashian reality shows, but does that keep us from watching?
Certainly not. In fact, last night's episode was reason enough to tune in for a few "realistic" reasons: the Kim Kardashian naked spread in November's W Magazine and the infamous club fight that transpired in October.
The producers happily burned whatever weaksauce script they had come up with, and instead captured the very essence of Kardashian drama.
We read about the details surrounding the night Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Scott were out at a club when a male fan asked Kim for a picture.
Things got out of hand when the fan's girlfriend accused Kim of hitting on her boyfriend. Though Kim did her best to convince the woman she wasn't trying to hit on her boyfriend, the woman continued to antagonize Kim.
Then Scott came to Kim's defense and attempted to break up the argument.
Things became heated, one thing lead to another and Scott had to be separated from the vagabonds. This all apparently happened while Kourtney was in the bathroom, so you can imagine her surprise when Khloe and Kim insisted it was time to go.
Given her past with Scott, you can (sort of) understand why Kourtney refused to talk to him the rest of that night. It wasn't very fair, but at the same time we don't know the private details of their relationship.
What we do know is we like Scott a little more after he stood up for Kim. After the club incident, Khloe doesn't loathe Scott as much as she used to. It was the first time in awhile we viewers saw everyone on the show being somewhat "real."
Next crisis: Kim's nude spread in W Magazine. While I get that Kim was embarrassed that the "art" promised to cover her naked body wasn't delivered, I have to wonder if she and the editors were on the same page.
Wouldn't you want it made crystal clear (and in writing) that you are only going nude for this high-fashion magazine if objects were covering your girly bits?
While the cover looked great, Kim's silver-painted body was on full display inside the magazine. Why are you only finding out it goes to press that you're naked?
There was a miscommunication somewhere along the line, and if Kim was as newly-New York'd as she claimed, she'd have acted sooner upon finding her naked ass all over the pages of W Magazine. And there would have been lawyers involved.
Things You're Talking About To Soften The Blow Of Monday Morning
Khloe visiting her sisters in New York means lots of inappropriate behavior with Kourtney. I'm so excited! And look! I was right. Kourtney jumped up and latched on to Khloe in the lobby of the Smyth Tribeca. Naturally, Kim hung to the side.
Once upon a time Khloe was adamant about moving to New York and being on her own. Last night she proclaimed that she loves visiting New York, but could never live there. Amazing what an ice rink on your finger and a big-ass home can do to change your mind.
"Who do you like better? Me or Kim?"
Kim's eye makeup doesn't even move when she sobs. Not one smudge. What does she use?
"I don't talk to people of your nature."
After seeing a copy of the magazine, Kim declared that she's never going nude again. Famous last words.
Khloe, your purple Birkin matches Scott's cashmere sweater. You two really have a chance at rebuilding your relationship.
