Kim and Kourtney's feud seems to be more than just drama for the cameras.
And an insider explains why these two sisters just can't get along.
RadarOnline reports on what is fueling Kim and Kourtney's feud.
"Kourtney thinks that Kim is just starved for attention," a source close to Kourtney says. "Which she is."
Like we said, it's a source close to Kourtney, so don't necessarily expect fair and balanced reporting.
The insider continues, describing how Kourtney feels: "She also thinks that the way that Kim parents her kids is just repulsive."
The source says of Kim: "She flaunts them around like they are accessories and that his just not how Kourtney parents."
The insider goes on to say that Kim and Kourtney are "not on good terms," even now, almost a year after the recent KUWTK squabbles were filmed.
The source shares that, regrettably, Kim and Kourt "will probably never be close like they were."
That's so sad.
Apparently, this all boils down to sisterly issues, as the insider explains: "Kim has always tried to one up Kourtney ever since they were little."
Middle Child Syndrome strikes again.
Kim apparently can't resist acting up "because she is her big sister and Kourtney has always resented her for it."
There's another factor -- because Kourtney herself is just over it.
The source says that Kourt "doesn’t want to do KUWTK anymore and her family knows this."
To be fair, Kourtney wasn't totally onboard to do the show when it was first suggested. Kris and Kim were the ones who pushed for it.
"She hasn’t wanted to do this for a couple of years now," the insider reveals.
Perhaps she has simply outgrown it.
Whatever the reason, Kourtney is weary, "and told Kris that she does not want to sign another contract after this one ends, which is next season."
"She got what she needed out of the show," the insider explains. "And it has made her insanely wealthy."
Kourtney is worth an estimated $35 million -- a fortune, even if it pales in comparison to Kim's wealth and is dwarfed by Kylie's colossal success.
"At the same time," the sourc says. "It has destroyed her relationship with Kim and it is beyond repair."
If you argue too often on camera, that can spill over into real life.
This is so sad! You hate to see sisters have a falling out.
But it doesn't really make sense for these squabbles -- and that is exactly what they are -- to amount to severing their sisterly bond.
Kourtney and Kim are both adults, even if neither of them act like it.
We would hope that they both have the perspective and common sense to cool off after their argument.
Again, what we've seen so far on this season of KUWTK was all filmed in late 2017.
That said ... if any of the Kardashians were more sensible or less dramatic, they wouldn't be nearly so entertaining to watch.
