Kourtney Kardashian’s Drama and Transparency Carried ‘KUWTK’ For 10 Seasons, Say Some Fans

Is Kourtney Kardashian the “most boring” sister of her family? By now, most fans are aware of the huge, blow-out fight that happened between Kourtney and Kim Kardashian West, where Kim called her sister the “most boring.” As a result, Kourtney has decided to step back from filming their reality show. But fans don’t necessarily agree with Kim’s assessment. In fact, some believe that the oldest sister has been carrying the show all along. 

Kim Kardashian West and Kourtney Kardashian got in a huge fight 

Season 18 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered with what is perhaps the biggest fight in the show’s history. The argument centered around Kim and Kourtney’s differing opinions about work ethic. As Kim pointed out, she would still show up to filming even if she was “on her death bed.” However, the most important thing in Kourtney’s life is being a good mother, not necessarily their reality show or being a celebrity

Kim insisted that Kourtney “doesn’t care about anything.” But Kourtney completely disagreed with that assessment. 

“I don’t want to hear this narrative anymore about this work ethic, and how she’s the only one who has work ethic and she’s doing this, this and this as if she’s better because she works more,” Kourtney said during a confessional. “It’s such bullsh*t we don’t always have to do things the same way.”

In a later scene, the disagreements continue. Kim announces that it doesn’t matter if Kourtney wants to step back from the show, because she’s “the least exciting to look at” anyway. She later clarified that she meant Kourtney was “the most boring.” But fans don’t agree with this opinion at all.

Kim may not think that Kourtney has contributed much to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but fans think she’s done more than her share. A TikTok video by @bysalma did a particularly good job at explaining this point of view.

As she points out, the first 10 years of Kourtney’s relationship with Scott Disick were televised, including his drug problems, cheating, relapses, and endless drama. In addition, she birthed all three of her children in front of cameras, while Kim had her children in private.

Kourtney starred in several spin-offs, including Kourtney and Khloe take Miami, Kourtney and Khloe take the Hamptons, and Kourtney and Kim take New York. 

“This b*tch carried Keeping Up With the Kardashians on her back,” @bysalma says in her video. “It is so disrespectful of Kim to say that Kourtney hasn’t contributed to the show…She has done her f*cking dues. How about [Kim] pick up the slack now? [Kourtney has] picked up the slack for 10 years. I will never accept that Kourtney is a slacker.”

Viewers agree that Kourtney Kardashian carried the show for years

Fans on Reddit had the same opinion. After a user posted @bysalma’s video, a discussion followed which seemed to prove that most fans believe Kourtney has done more than her share of work on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. 

“Honestly so true. The first few seasons was honestly all about Scott and Kourt and their messy ass relationship… nobody was as honest as her imo,” one viewer wrote. 

Another person wrote, “High key agree. Kourt is one of the only things keeping the show interesting, and the last episode made that very clear.”

When the same video was posted on Twitter, fans again agreed with her point of view. 

“She’s always been my fave because despite coming off super bougie she’s actually really humble. And when Kim said she’s the least interesting to look at I was like??? At least Kourtney isn’t filled with plastic to look pretty,” one user wrote in response. 

Fans online seem to be able to realize Kourtney’s contribution to the show with no problem. It’s too bad Kim can’t see the same thing.
