Whew, this is tense.

Now we all know siblings clash at the best of times, but the E! red carpet probably isn't the place for a sibling spat. Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian had a seriously awkward interview moment at Sunday night's (10 November) People's Choice Awards, and of course, it was all captured on video.

The entire Kardashian family rolled out their best fashion lewks for the occasion, with their series Keeping Up With the Kardashians up for Best Reality Show. The show eventually won and Khloe Kardashian even walked away with the Favourite Reality TV star gong (not that she noticed…).

But, the real excitement was before they picked up their accolades. Kris Jenner, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe were asked who they were wearing by E! presenter Giuliana Rancic. Kourtney, who was wearing a bedazzled trouser suit with a little bralet underneath, tried to answer, and said: "I didn’t plan this…Naeem Khan? Is that how you say it?" But Kim then cut her off, leaning into the mic to plug her latest KKW Beauty fragrance. "All that matters is that we’re wearing KKW Diamonds! That’s all that – we’re all wearing that," she said. Classic Kimberley.

Kim then told Kourtney: "I was saving you since you didn’t know who you were wearing. That was my save," and Kourtney clapped back: "No, it’s Naeem Khan, I just didn’t know how to pronounce it." Kim then simply responded, "Oh."

Yes, we feel the tension through our screens too.

Kourtney and Kim have been clashing a lot lately. If you'll cast your mind back to 2018, Kim harshly told Kourtney she is the "least interesting to look at" on an episode of KUWTK? Ouch. And, in the latest series of the show, Kim called Kourtney a "fake humanitarian hoe" after an argument over... clothes.

Kim and Kourtney's awkward exchange comes following the news that Kourtney announced she would be stepping back from Keeping Up With the Kardashians to spend more time with her children – Mason, nine, Penelope, seven, and four-year-old Reign.

"I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there," Kourtney explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "But I’m not saying goodbye. But I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18."
