Scott Disick's Hamptons Struggles Stem from Pain

by Christine DiStasio

If you caught the season premiere of Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons , you were probably confused by Scott Disick's apparent hatred for Southampton. Because, for someone who wants to be royalty so badly, it's weird as hell that he'd absolutely hate a place where some of America's royalty vacations every summer. Scott loves being rich, Scott loves hanging out, and Scott hates peasants — the Hamptons couldn't be more perfect for him. And yet, he desperately wants to get out of there and away from Kourtney and his kids. Why? It's no secret that Scott is having a hard time with his parents' deaths and, it seems that Scott's family history is why he wants out of the Hamptons.

In case you've been living under a rock and aren't up to date with what's been going on with everyone's favorite non-Kardashian — Scott's mom and dad died, both at 63, within months of each other in the past year. Bonnie and Jeffrey Disick appeared on Keeping Up With The Kardashians a few times, especially after Bonnie fell ill. But Scott wasn't able to see his parents very often as he lived in L.A., and was in California when his mother passed. What does this have to do with Scott's hatred of the Hamptons?

Well, in the first promos for KKTH, Scott's struggles with losing his parents were brought to the forefront and during the season premiere, Scott opened up to Khloe about his intense anxiety and inability to sleep. I can't pretend to understand what Scott's going through or how he feels, but everyone should be able to sympathize with how losing both of one's parents, in such a short period of time, would be so hard on someone.

Here's the deal, Scott grew up just a hop, skip, and jump away from his summer home with Kourtney in Eastport, L.I., a town that borders Southampton, where his parents lived until their deaths. Scott was candid about the fact that it's hard for him to be spending the summer so close to where his parents lived now that they're gone. And it's also hard for him to think about the fact that he has to decide whether or not he wants to sell his parents' home.

Scott admitted during the KKTH season premiere that it felt weird to be in the Hamptons, so close to his parents home now that they've died, when he spent so little time on the East Coast while they were alive. And, pile on top of that the difficult chore of going through his parents' belongings and deciding what to do with their home (while Kourtney pushes him to get it done, by the way), it's a recipe for disaster. Scott's grieving and being in the Hamptons is just throwing in his face, every single day, the tragedy he experienced in the past year.

I don't necessarily agree with how Scott's taking it out on Kourtney and his family, but loss is exceptionally hard for some people to deal with. And it's obvious that Scott's not just feeling grief, but also guilt about how much time he was able to spend with his parents. The Hamptons is probably not the best place for him to be right now (especially with Khloe feeding into his desire to run from his feelings, rather than confront them) and he clearly knows that. He's going to need a vacation from his Hamptons vacation when this is all over.
