Kourtney Kardashian wanted more privacy

During season 17, Kourtney reached her breaking point after sharing so much of her private life with the world over the years. It didn’t go over well with Kim and Khloé, who felt like they had to pick up Kourtney’s slack.

Kim explained the issue to the camera, saying, “Our job is being open and honest and sharing a lot of ourselves, and it just seems for the past few years now, Kourtney hasn’t really been open about her personal life on camera.”

“So all of the days that Kourtney isn’t filming, Khloé and I are picking up the slack and having to share more. Cause if we’re not sharing our lives, then what is the show?,” she added.

The sisters got into a huge fight

Season 18 of KUWTK kicked off with the sisters getting physical. Kim and Kourtney got into a huge brawl on the show when Kim commented about her sister’s work ethic.

“You have this narrative in your mind … I will literally f*ck you up if you mention it again,” Kourtney said. “But, honestly, change the narrative in your mind. I work my f*cking a*s off.”

“But also, if I didn’t want to work my a*s off and I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, that’s f*cking fine!,” she yelled at her sister. The two got physical, with Kim sharing later on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that blood was actually shed.

“I don’t really ever resort to violence like that, but she scratched me so hard, which you guys didn’t see … I was bleeding, so you didn’t really get to see that detail, but when I looked down at my arm and I saw she had really scratched me and I felt it all on my back, I just went over and slapped her back. It’s not, like, my proudest moment, but we were going through it,” Kim explained.

Kris Jenner broke down in tears over the fight

On the Oct. 8 episode of KUWTK, Kris was devastated over her daughters’ fighting, telling Kourtney as she dabbed away tears, “I just wanted to tell you that I watched the episode this morning on the way to shoot today. I just feel really bad.”

“And I just wanted to tell you … if you need somebody to talk to, then we should sit down because I just feel really bad,” she added.

Kourtney explained how she felt like “everyone was ganging up on me for two f*cking years.”

“I feel fine now. But like, it’s just such a natural thing in our family, what everyone does if someone goes any way against what everyone else is doing, it just seems like they just attack,” she added.

Khloé shared in a confessional how she and Kourtney had been “reconnecting,” explaining, “Things were better.” She added that old feelings came up again when the episode aired but assured, “I value Kourtney, I love Kourtney and I want her to feel loved and valued by me too.”
