Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: Kris Jenner Hits a New Low

by at .  Updated at . Comments

This week's Keeping Up With the Kardashians was all about Kris Jenner's venture into the world of talk show hosting. In other words, it was not good.

As you likely recall, not even the birth of North West or the non-stop tabloid fascination with Kim Kardashian & Co. could save this unmitigated disaster.

Still, it was time to watch it unfold with the benefit (?) of hindsight.

Check out our Keeping Up With the Kardashians recap below!

Kathie Lee Gifford sighting? Minus 100 right off the bat.

Fortunately, we all know Kris' dream will be short-lived, so that makes it a little easier to stomach what she's trying to do, knowing that she fails at something.

We don't wish failure or unhappiness upon anyone, for the record, but when it's Kris trying to squeeze Kim Kardashian and siblings dry? We're okay with it.

Plus 400 for knowing right off the bat that this tanks.

Minus 600, though, for having to watch her stroke her own ego for the duration of this episode as she pursued her "life-long dream" of having a talk show.

We're not the only ones who are on to her.

Kourtney Kardashian made zero bones about the fact that Kris was making her big talk show all about her kids - and gave her a list of notes. Plus 500.

Her concerns were more than legitimate.

Kim Kardashian, incredibly, was bullied by her mom into shooting a video just after North West's birth for the show. Kim was clearly coerced and sad.

We're not feeling bad for someone in the exploitation business, which Kim is, but Kris clearly took it to unprecedented depths with this stunt, so Minus 2,800.

Kanye West's move to create a different sort of celebrity for Kim, with more privacy? May need to work on that, given that he too appeared on Kris.

Still, good thing 'Ye (Plus 500) offers some sort of balance to Kris, who would have North and Kim appear on the show constantly for the sake of ratings.

At least we got to see Khloe Kardashian drive Bruce Jenner into the desert to look for aliens for some reason in a totally unscripted journey. Plus 300.

Bruce just wanted to camp, shoot guns, and walk under the desert moon. Not happening. Khloe enlisted a guy who claimed he was abducted by aliens.

He was pissed, which eventually required Khloe to intervene.

The upshot? Brandon and Brody Jenner hired actors dressed up as aliens to scare the ISH out of everyone at night. Plus 1,000, as a good time was had by all.

Except for Lamar Odom, who kept obsessively calling Khloe. It was awkward, especially given the events we know have played out over the past few months.

"There’s a lot of emotional issues and as much as I’m trying to enjoy going camping with my family I also have to cater to Lamar’s needs," Khloe tells the camera.

"It’s really scary when nothing’s really working and you know if you give up no one in his life would be able to help." That's putting it mildly ... Minus 200.

Rob Kardashian says it's "Lamar is just being Lamar." If that's true, Lamar being Lamar may not be the most stable dude ... which of course we know. Minus 500.
