This week's new Keeping Up With The Kardashians trailer showed, among other things, some intense feuding.
Kim and Kourtney sound like they are once again at each other's throats.
A report says that Kris worries that, even if their fights are good for ratings, one day it could tear apart their close-knit family.
An inside source opened up to HollywoodLife about the rising and ebbing tensions between Kim and Kourtney.
"The girls do fight very dirty," the insider acknowledges of the sisters.
The source adds: "They don’t hold back and often say very hurtful things."
Yeah, they've more or less made a whole career out of that.
And even after all of these seasons of filming, as we saw in the recent trailer, they're still fully capable of putting each other on blast.
The only good thing about their fights is that, when the sisters have differences, they aren't allowed to fester for long.
"But, they also don’t shy away from talking about it," the insider observes.
"When things get ugly," the source adds. "Kris forces them to talk it out."
"She works very hard to play peacemaker when her girls fight," the insider notes.
The source explains: "because she knows how important it is that they stick together.”
Kris is sure to emphasize to her children that solidarity is a source of strength. She drives home that message again and again.
“If they don’t have each other they have nothing," the insider characterizes.
According to the source: "One of Kris’ biggest fears is that they’ll get into some sort of ugly family feud."
"She knows it could tear them apart," the insider acknowledges.
Second perhaps only to already being rich and beautiful, the way that the Kardashian family works together has been a key to their success.
So, what about that nasty feuding that we saw in the Season 17 trailer?
"Kourtney and Kim are getting along as of today," the source announces.
"They’ve always been the ones in the family that fight the most," the insider notes.
We been knew, as they say.
"It’s been that way since they were very young," the source reminds the world. "They love hard and fight just as hard."
In the Keeping Up With The Kardashians trailer that aired just days ago, Kris' concern was palpable.
"I feel like the really funny side of you guys outweighed the mean side,” the momager expressed to her daughters.
Kris added: “And I feel like it’s gotten a little Mean Girls."
Nice nod to Kris' role in Ariana Grande's "Thank U Next" music video.
Kourtney can be heard vocally complaining about her younger sibling.
"Kim can be the biggest f--king evil person on the planet," Kourt gripes.
This is when we hear a furious Kim announces that she's icing out Kourtney.
"We’re firing Kourtney, she’s out," she declares angrily.
Kris clearly tries to calm Kim.
"As much as I love you," she tells her daughter. "You fight a lot dirtier than you used to fight."
"I feel like we just need to press a reset button," Kris expresses.
She adds: "You guys have got to get back to the fact that we’re just family."
