As the title of this episode indicates, true colors are shown – and a lot of people are seeing red.
If we counted correctly, there are four fights happening simultaneously including the one still simmering from last week between Kim and Khloe from when Khloe was visiting New York and woke Kim up an hour early. The two sisters see each other for the first time since then in L.A., but thankfully they’re too busy with Kardashian Kollection business for that to ignite.
Probably the true colors there are us starting to see what a baby Kim is not to at least apologize to her sister for calling her an “ugly troll” when Khloe seems ready to make up. But there are more true colors to come in this rainbow.
Things start off with Scott Disick, Kourtney’s boyfriend, and the father of their two-year-old boy, Mason; deciding that he wants to get back to his true self and explore his Jewish heritage. He’d like to have some sort of religion in his life that he can pass on to his kids.
Kourtney laughs at the idea, saying Scott’s interest in Judaism is just “another one of his fads and he’ll be over it in a week.” She reminds him later that at one point he wanted to be a race car driver too and that went nowhere.
Then there’s the announcement that Kim and Kourtney are taking off to L.A. on their business trip, and Kris gets the bright idea to have a party. Scott, still reeling from battle scars from his past as a bad boy, knows that’s not going to fly with the Kardashian chicks and tries to warn Kris.
The sisters says there’s no way anyone’s going to have any fun while they’re not around to ruin it. But Kourtney is kind enough to go before the camera to explain to us why:
“In our family we’re a bunch of strong women,” and Kris is a strong man, so there’s a “power struggle.” That’s true.
Meanwhile, Kris Jenner – the girls’ mom – calls Kim with “disturbing” news that Kim’s bestie, Jonathan Cheban, wants to write a tell-all about Kimmie. Kim loses it because they’ve been friends for years, he knows everything, and she can’t believe he would do this to her. Mom cautions her, “You can’t trust anybody but family.” Nice.
Kourtney suggests that Kim set a trap for Jonathan to see if he takes the bait. Kourtney tells her to go to dinner and ask him what’s going on, and if she doesn’t hear the word, “book,” he’s “beyond shady.”
All fired up, Kim meets with Jonathan, he fails her test; and she walks out of the restaurant while he stresses out trying to explain. Kim says he’s betrayed her and they’re done.
Poor Scott meets with a rabbi who invites him to a learner service. He likes the feeling of getting in touch with his faith, and he and Kris go out for their first free night without their wardens. They meet up with Kris’ friend Josh, who encourages Kris to have a little gathering. Kris says he doesn’t see why he and Scott shouldn’t because the suite is their home too.
Scott reminds him that Kourtney and Kim had forbidden any such thing. “Kim said I could have people over,” Kris tells the always dapper Scott, adding, ”Don’t let the Rolex and the suit fool you. You’re just like Bruce and all the other whipped Kardashian men.”
Kris says he’s going to have a “handful” of friends over, he gets a keg and tons of liquor. Girls march in, and when the crowd runs out of cups Kris asks if someone would like to use little Mason’s. Scott comes home and tells Kris he better get everyone out or he’s going to have security do it.
“I don’t want to walk around walking on eggshells like you,” Kris says. “If I want to have a party, I’m gonna have a party.” Kim and Kourtney get back from L.A. and see pictures of the soiree.
Scott tries to cover for Kris and says he gave the party, but Kris won’t let Scott take the blame and apologizes to Kim. She forgives him but warns him not to let any more fun happen in her “private suite” again.
No, the whipping doesn’t stop there. Kris Jenner decides she’s going to be “all over this guy (Jonathan)” if he dares to try to write a tell-all. She gets a copy of the book proposal only to find it’s a tutorial on how to become a wonderful “It” girl like Kim.
Kim tries to call Jonathan to apologize several times but he ignores her. She goes over to his apartment, but he tells her to get out because she should have known better so now he’s mad.
Just when Jonathan’s about to be our hero, he makes up with Kim after Kris gets the idea for her to offer to do a forward to the book.
Back to Scott trying to get some religion, he decides he’d like to have people over for Shabbat, and invites Jonathan (who’s also Jewish). Kourtney remains dismissive. Scott gets so discouraged over her lack of support that he decides to call the whole thing off. Kourtney feels bad and helps serve the meal and entertain. We find out she’s never even heard of Manischewitz wine so we have a long way to go here.
Was that four fights, or more?
