Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: Close to Home
Last night on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 8, Kim became alarmed with rising rate of homelessness in Los Angeles.
Whatever you think of her family, they did their best to find a way to make changes in this case – a selfless case, and for a good cause.
If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know that despite their fame and fortune, the stars are all too human.
This week was no different.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 8 began with Kim Kardashian taking a trip to the Museum of Ice Cream.
Harmless fun. Until the drive home, where she saw rows of tents in a downtown homeless encampment, a jarring, sad visual.
Well, at least once you know what it is. Kim naively remarked at first, “You’re allowed to put a tent on the side of the road?”
If that comment were the end of this, you could call her vapid or out of touch. But Kimberly was determined to educate herself.
“I’m just at a point in my life where I don’t want to be naive anymore. … I really do want to learn,” she said, and backed it up.
She and Khloe then visited Union Rescue Mission and heard the stories of homeless individuals, people who have nothing.
Kim commented afterward that drug use is an unfair stigma: “There’s so many circumstances that can lead to this situation.”
Very true. As was a realization that came next: “The city needs to figure out housing and it’s not gonna be just one person.”
Kim then met with councilwoman Nury Martinez, and after touring another encampment, Kim urged the councilwoman:
“People have to see this. I want to drive down here. I want to bring our cameras. I want to show people what it’s like just down the street.”
“If me speaking about it even brings awareness to one person,” the reality star said, “then that can help make a difference.”
Further showing how serious she is, Kim then volunteered with her assistant, Stephanie Shepherd, at the Alexandria House.
They offered a glam squad, resume instruction and money management to residents of the Los Angeles women’s shelter.
Gotta hand it to her for using her platform for this.
Meanwhile, because the show isn’t all serious, Khloe revealed her plastic surgery plans to look like younger sister Kendall.
She was kidding … we think. Maybe. She said: “I literally will get Botox around my belly button so it looks like that. I’m going to.”
Presumably she means after the baby.
Khloe also continued to get on her mom’s case, confronting her Momager about never remembering their plans together.
Or other key details, apparently.
As Kris wrote a note for herself in her office, viewers saw a shot of her stationery featuring her old name, “Kris Kardashian.”
“Did you forget what your last name is too?” Khloe said, raising a valid point … did she legally take it back post-divorce?
