Remember how Kim Kardashian threatened to fire Kourtney, which is not something that she can do, from their family’s show?
Well, Kris is stepping in. In this sneak peek clip, Kim finally admits that she can be vicious and cruel to the ones she loves, especially Kourt.
Last Sunday on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney’s attempts to set personal boundaries set Kim into a rage spiral.
"Everyone needs a f–king consequence," Kim spitefully declared. "Let’s show her."
"If she doesn’t want to show up, if she doesn’t want to work and she has too many f–king boundaries, then she’s out," she said menacingly.
Kim directly threatened Kourt with firing, while Kourtney maintained that simple boundaries to maintain her well-being were not a bad thing.
In this new sneak peek clip, the Kardashians are in Wyoming, where Kanye reportedly wants to live full time even though it’s no substitute for his meds.
While traveling through the dreary and frankly creepy countryside, Kris has decided that she wants to play at family therapy.
"I want each one of you to pick one person sitting here," Kris tells her assembled family members.
She continues: "And tell them what’s the one thing you’d love to focus on strengthening in your relationship."
The momager explains: "What we’re gonna do is build the communication."
"Khloe, is there somebody on the bus that you’d like to strengthen with?"
It turns out that there is, in fact, someone with whom Khloe would like to strengthen.
"I feel like Kourtney and I sometimes fizzle," Khloe confesses after some consideration.
"So, I think I would love to get us back on course and maybe not be so reactive," Khloe says.
She then quickly clarifies that she’s not calling out Kourtney as a bad sister or some sort of firecracker.
Khloe says that she means less reactivity "For myself."
"The way you say things," Kris briefly summarizes, before asking: "What about you, Kendall?"
Kendall, who is drinking from a cup (which lets us playfully imagine that she’s drinking Pepsi), appears a little unprepared for the question.
"I think sometimes, there’s a lot of, like, judgment between all of us," Kendall expresses to the group.
Everyone present chimes in with agreement.
"And we think it’s fine because we’re family," Kendall says.
The hottest person in the group then singles out one family member in particular.
"Kourt, you say it a lot," Kendall accuses. "Like, ‘We can’t be so juudgmental.’ But you are, too."
Kendall explains: "Like, we all have to realize that we all are."
Since Kourtney was already brought up twice, Kim decides to throw her hat into the ring.
"I want to fix, you know, my relationship probably with Kourtney," Kim admits.
She expresses that she would like to mend fences and make amends "for those mean reasons and those mean comments."
"I mean, I can be so mean," Kim acknowledges to her family and to the cameras.
"You guys go back and forth though," Khloe points out. "It’s an equal."
Equal it may be, but one person making an effort to stop being cruel to someone whom she loves isn’t going to be a bad thing, right?
And we have to imagine that Kourt is exhausted with having multiple adversarial relationships, especially with Kim.
Remember, Kim has an intense drive to do things. At the end of the day, Kourtney would rather chill like a normal person. Feuds are exhausting.
