Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian had an explosive argument on KUWTK that ended in tears.
Kourtney Kardashian's KUWTK future is up in the air after Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have threatened to fire her.
Ever since Keeping Up with the Kardashians first aired in 2007, it's never failed to shock and entertain us. Every episode Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and their momager Kris Jenner let us into their homes and their personal lives. From actual births to cheating scandals, literally nothing is off-limits on the TV show.
However, recently fans have noticed that Kourtney has become more and more private on the show and now Kim and Khloe are calling her out for it. In fact, the arguments between the sisters got so heated on KUWTK this week (Dec 8) that it ended with Kim and Khloe threatening to removed Kourtney from the series and Kourtney considering leaving it for good.
Is Kourtney Kardashian leaving Keeping Up with the Kardashians?
In this week's episode, Kim and Khloe catch Kourtney with a hickey and Kourtney refuses to reveal how she got it. She says: "My sisters are pretty nosey when it comes to anything in my life and I try to keep certain things private. I don't like to share about dating." Kim adds: "Kourtney having a hickey is wild to me. I had no idea she was even hooking up with someone."
Kim and Khloe then secretly follow Kourtney via car to try and find out what she is hiding from them. Kim explains: "I kind of feel like an asshole following Kourtney, but early on we all made a pact to share our lives. That's our job. Kourt spends a lot of time off camera and won't talk about her relationship, but you'll see paparazzi photos of her and her guy."
Later Kim and Khloe read through fan feedback about KUWTK and notice that viewers have been complaining that Kourtney "hides a lot of her life from the cameras." Khloe then responds: "I'm not surprised that the report says that people don't feel like they know the real Kourtney, 'cause sometimes I don't think Kim and I know the real Kourtney".
Kim and Khloe then call Kourtney. They tell her: "We have a proposal for you. It starts with an f and ends with a d". Kourtney then explains in a confessional that it brought her to tears. She adds: "If Kim thinks she has the power to fire me from our family show? It's just crazy. Sometimes we need a break and I don't want to film with Kim."
It doesn't stop there though. Khloe calls Kris and states: "You, as our manager, should want this show to be successful. And you should talk to Kourtney and say, 'Ok, Kourtney. If you're not willing to bring anything than you're done.'" Kim then adds: "Everyone needs a fucking consequence. Let's show her. If she doesn't want to show up, if she doesn't want to work, she has too many fucking boundaries, she's out."
The episode ends with Kourtney defending herself. She explains: "I, of course, am grateful for all the years of filming our show. But, you know, I've spent so many years on camera and I'm just in a different headspace. It just was a lot of pressure on everyday life and I've just outgrown that. I think the private moments are so special and I just need more of them."
She adds: "My well-being is more important than the show. I'm not giving in and I'm not going to change my boundaries. That's not gonna happen."
The show then ends with Kim, Khloe and Kourtney in disagreement.
As it stands, it's unclear if Kourtney has made up with her sisters, if she's decided to continue on starring in KUWTK or if Kim and Khloe are trying to force her out. Seeing as Kourtney is an Executive Producer of the show along with Kim and Khloe, they cannot technically fire her.
It seems like we'll find out what happens in this week's episode (Dec 15). We'll update you as soon as we know more.
