Why Kim Kardashian’s Feud With Kourtney Kardashian is Totally Fabricated For Reality TV

Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been on the air for over 10 years now, and fans have witnessed all kinds of fights and arguments between the family members. Recently, though, the conflict between Kim and Kourtney Kardashian seems to be the most prominent.

On TV, it looks as if these two sisters have a very bad relationship and are constantly at odds with one another. However, what fans might not realize is that not everything on KUWTK is real life. In fact, when we dig deeper, it seems like Kim and Kourtney’s feud might have just been exaggerated for their show.

Kim and Kourtney have fought a lot and said some nasty things about each other over the years.

For example, Kim once called Kourtney “the least interesting to look at” and “the most boring” person on their show. Kourtney has been mean to Kim as well, calling her a “fake humanitarian” and mockingly telling Kim that “there are people dying” when she lost some expensive earrings.

Earlier this year, the two sisters had intense arguments when they were planning a joint birthday party for their two daughters. The two ladies could not seem to compromise and were constantly taking jabs at each other.

Recently, the sisters also clashed when Kim felt like Kourtney kept slacking off on filming KUWTK, and, as a result, Kim and Khloe have to film more in order for the show to have content. In response, Kourtney admitted that KUWTK is no longer a priority for her.

Kourtney even said in another instance that two of her sisters – Kim and Khloe – often gang up on her. She shared: “I feel like I’ve been bullied for the last two years by Kim and Khloe if I don’t do something that fits their mold of how they want me to be. I just think no matter what, my sisters, they’re always looking for a reason to give me s***.”

Kim Kardashian once hinted at the fact that Kourtney was her least favorite sister

Given all this drama between Kourtney and Kim, it’s not surprising that Kim once hinted at Kourtney being her least favorite sister.

Back in 2017, Kim went on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and was asked to name her top three sisters. Kim’s response was “Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie,” which made a lot of fans wonder why she left out Kourtney. However, Kim has never actually revealed the reason behind it.

Why Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s feud could have been fabricated for TV

There seems to be a lot of evidence that Kim and Kourtney really dislike each other. However, the truth is that they actually get along better than the drama on KUWTK is implying.

For one thing, it’s well known by now that the Kardashian family and their producers are willing to stir up arguments in order to make their show more entertaining for viewers. This is actually not something unique to KUWTK – practically every reality series today does this. As such, sometimes it’s best to take what happens on TV with a grain of salt because we never know what has been faked or exaggerated for ratings.

Moreover, the Kardashian sisters have always shared that their children get along well with each other, especially their two oldest daughters, North and Penelope. If their kids are close friends and spend a lot of time together, then it’s likely that Kim and Kourtney’s relationship is quite good as well.

This is quite evident when we listen to how they talk about each other when they are not filming KUWTK. The two of them always maintain that they love each other and, even though they might argue sometimes like any pair of sisters would, at the end of the day there doesn’t seem to be anything but love and support in the Kardashian family.
