Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: A Literal Family Feud
This season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has featured one very prominent feud between family members.
Loyal viewers have watched as Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have teamed up and tried to bring down Kourtney Kardashian due to her lack of committment to hanging with her siblings.
On Sunday night, however, a different kind of family feud broke out.
A literal family feud broke out.
Because these same siblings and their loved ones were featured on… you guessed it by now probably… FAMILY FEUD!
The game show!
All did not go smoothly leading up to this special appearance, however, as Kris Jenner discovered that the family’s opponent, Paris Hilton and her relatives, had dropped out just 24 hours prior to taping.
Talk about a major crisis!
Why not Kanye West and his family, Kim suggested quickly, almost as if this had been the scripted plan all along?
So it was then decided: Kanye, Kim and his cousins would take on Kris, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and their cousin Cici Bussey.
Due to the uneven numbers, Jonathan Cheban was asked by Kim fly out from Miami at 4 a.m. to participate on Kris and Khloe’s squad.
There was just one problem wth this plan, Khloe pointed out:
“Love Jonathan and all but he’s not a Kardashian.”
Others agreed and, therefore, on the day of the taping, a suggestion was floating for Kris Jenner’s mom, Mary Jo, to take Jonathan’s spot on the show.
“Jonathan should not be on our team,” Khloe said, to which an annoyed Kim shot back:
“How do I break the news to Jonathan that he’s not gonna play, and he just got on a plane at the drop of a dime.”
(Editor’s Note: This may, literally, have been the biggest First World Problem of all-time.)
Could Cheban just go on Kim and Kanye’s team?
“Jonathan’s a big boy … I’m not going to kick one of my family [members] off TV,” the rapper replied. “It’s their first time on TV.”
“Jonathan gets on TV all the time.”
To conclude this enthralling debate, host Steve Harvey stepped in said producers could put Kris and MJ on the same mic and have an uneven number of teammates.
Upon losing against her own family, Kim directed the blame right at Kanye’s cousins, saying:
“Kanye’s cousins sunk it for us, not gonna lie.”
Elsewhere, Kourtney and Scott Disick went at it.
The former was angry about the latter introducing his young girlfriend, Sofia Richie, to the ex-couple’s three children.
“So last night we got home, the kids were there. So, of course, they met my girlfriend,” Scott told her simply.
Kris then appeared to take Scott’s side.
“I don’t understand why she can introduce her boyfriend to the kids but you can’t introduce your girlfriend,” she told him.
The latest disagreement between these exes featured Scott accusing Kourtney of being “overly controlling.”
This is a word she REALLY hates being used against her. The mother of three defended herself as follows:
“We have rules. Kids need rules. It’s not hard.”
In a confessional, Kourtney added that being controlling or not has nothing to do with the situation.
“He gets everyone on his side and tries to play the victim,” she explained.
In the end, Scott did apologize for not giving Kourtney a heads up about the meeting between Mason, Reign, Penelope and Sofia.
As a result, the episode’s second feud came to a rather quiet conclusion.
