‘KUWTK’ Finale: Kourtney Kardashian Reaches Her Breaking Point After Fight with Sisters
Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 17 came to a dramatic end on Dec. 15. The season mostly focused on the rising tension between Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney Kardashian, and it ended without any real resolution. In the KUWTK finale, Kourtney snapped after getting into a heated fight with her sisters and suggested that she was done filming the show.
‘KUWTK’ finale recap
In the episode, Kris Jenner rounded up the sisters and told them how frustrated she’d been with all the fighting. She then organized a trip to Wyoming to “press a reset button, and really get everybody back to the family I know and love.”
Upon arrival, the group partook in exercises that improve communication. During a ropes course, the tensions started coming to a head. At one point, Kourtney jokingly teased and booed Khloé. In response, Khloé called Kourtney a “bully” and a “b*tch.”
The response hit Kourtney hard.
“When Khloé calls me a bully, it’s just the exact opposite,” Kourtney said (via People). “I feel like I’ve been bullied for the last two years by Kim and Khloé, 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 sh*t.”
She contemplated leaving Wyoming and flying back to California, but Kendall Jenner convinced her to stay.
The Kardashians discuss the future of the show
In a later sit-down, the family discussed whether there’s a future for KUWTK, which premiered in 2007.
“If we continue to work together and try to be respectful of what everyone else’s needs are around us and listen to what each other are saying, I think that we can definitely carry on filming this show,” Kris said.
But some people weren’t so optimistic and positive.
“If everyone acted like you did, filming-wise, then we’d absolutely have no show,” Kim told Kourtney.
“I have three kids that are my priority more than the show,” Kourtney retorted. “Why do I have to say it 25 times? I’m not going to change my mind.”
“What I’m saying is I’m getting to the point where I’m not happy. Everyone has their breaking point,” she added. “Life is short. It’s not all about filming this show.”
Kourtney admitted in a confessional that she’d reached the end of her rope and no longer wanted to do the show.
“It’s not okay that I feel like I’m at my breaking point,” she explained. “I need a break and I don’t want to film anymore.”
Kourtney Kardashian has decided to step away from ‘KUWTK’
Kourtney told Entertainment Tonight in November that she’ll no longer regularly appear on KUWTK.
“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she explained. “But I’m not saying goodbye.”
“I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18,” Kourtney continued. “It isn’t airing yet but it’s being filmed.”
We can’t wait. It’s unclear when season 18 will air. But we’ll let you know as soon as the word is out.
