Kim Kardashian Fights With Kris Jenner On 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' & The Reason Is Heartbreaking
Guys, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is finally back, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Don't get me wrong — Rob & Chyna was a pretty decent placeholder during the hiatus, but is there anything that satisfies a need for reality TV like KUWTK? And best of all, the season premiere brought a classic theme of the show back: Kris fighting with her daughters. Except this time, it was completely heartbreaking. On Sunday night's new ep, Kris got into a fight with Kim over Caitlyn Jenner, and it's obvious that getting used to life after her divorce and Caitlyn's transition hasn't been easy for the family matriarch.
Time for the ESPYs rolled around, and Caitlyn needed someone to help dress her for the occasion. Naturally, she asked Kim — because let's face it, if you have a huge event coming up, and you want to look fabulous, Kim is the person you call. You know, if you have that kind of access. Of course, Kim agreed, and helped her find the knockout gown she wore that night. But the dress isn't the point; the symbolism of Kim helping Caitlyn was the point, and that's exactly what hurt Kris' feelings.
As we've seen on KUWTK (and I Am Cait), dealing with Caitlyn's transition hasn't been easy for Kris at all. But to her, seeing Kim dress Caitlyn was like disrespecting Kris — and she made that pretty clear when she explained it in a rant via text message to Khloe, including the actual hashtag "#notloyal" in her text. Yep, it was that serious. And the situation wasn't made any better when Kim called her to find out what was up and Kris accused her of being a traitor, despite the fact that she had no idea this would hurt her mom at all.
Fortunately, their fight didn't last long, and she and Khloe planned a fun day to make it up for Kris — including a stay at the hotel where Pretty Woman was filmed. And when they sat down to brunch, it made a lot of sense that she was upset. Like she said, it's not like she has anyone to talk to who's been through the same thing. But even if she feels like her kids are #notloyal sometimes, they do always have her back. Maybe her hashtag should be #mostlyloyal instead?
