Kourtney Kardashian gets weaning advice from Kathie Lee Gifford

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Kourtney and Kim Kardashian were on the Today Show yesterday to promote their upcoming reality show, Kourtney and Kim Take NY. It looked at times like Kim was totally over Kourtney, and like she resented it when Kathie Lee and Hoda were asking Kourteney questions instead of focusing on her. If Kim’s face was capable of conveying normal human emotions I would say that I saw flashes of contempt. (Around 3:10 in)

As is typical for this family, they shared a faux embarassing personal story about how Kourtney’s boobs were leaking while she was on the plane away from her son, Mason, who turned one on December 19. Kim clearly does not approve that Kourtney is still nursing her son, or maybe her last restylane injections just settled wrong. Kourteney said she wasn’t sure she was ready to stop breastfeeding, and Kathie Lee told her how to help dry out her boobs using cabbage and bandages. Kathie Lee explained that she had to do this for a hosting gig at the Miss America pageant six weeks after her daughter Cassidy was born.

Kim on how Kourtney doesn’t apologize
Kourtney will try and find the thing that gets you the most. She wants to make you cry and she never says sorry.

Kim makes Kourtney’s boob issue about her
Let’s start with the fact that I’m sleeping on the plane and she wakes me up on the flight here going ‘I just went into the bathroom and I squeezed my boob and all this milk came out because I forgot my pump I packed it.’

Kourtney on her painful boobs
Since then I’ve had these massive lumps in my boobs, they’re huge and rock hard. So I just twittered [for help]. Right now I have a sticker on me that tingles.

Kathie Lee on how to wean
When I had to do Miss American pageant six weeks after Cass was born, somebody told me if you want to wean you put very cold cabbage leaves on you, then you wrap yourself in an ace bandage. Some natural chemical is released from the cabbage and the milk dries out.

Kourtney on her weaning
And then I was crying too, because I don’t know if I’m done.

Kourtney on how things are good with Scott
He’s been good for almost a year

I had a similar issue when I was nursing and just used really hot washcloths. It can be dangerous if you get a clogged duct and it needs to be treated right away.

Getting back to these twits, I’ve only seen clips of their various shows and have no desire to start watching now. I can be convinced, though, because I know what a sheer pleasure it is to watch other reality shows like the RHOBH. Judging from the stunts these two pull I’m guessing that the Kardashian shows are more about creating faux drama and scripted plotlines and less about natural catfights and bitchiness. Although I would guess that Kim can bring the nasty if any of her sisters are getting more attention than she is.

    (shaking head) Goodness gracious…reallly?! Really?!

    These girls both need to go back to the insane asylum they escaped from!

  2. brin says:

    NO CB, from what I’ve seen (which is very little), Kim just cries, it’s Kourtney & Khloe who are the meanest and loudest.
    Also..Kathie Lee is just gross.

  3. OriginalGracie says:

    I think Kourtney is way prettier than Kim. Other than her horrendous taste in men (the serial killer-esque Scott Disick), I like her.

    Kim is too……..alien looking, feline looking, fake looking, mannequin looking. Kourtney always wears cute stuff and just looks like she’d be fun.

  4. LeeLee says:

    They both need to leave their faces alone!

  5. SexyBrownGirl says:

    I agree!!! I love Kourtney soooo much..its just that Kim and her huge ego and everything else overshadows everyone else…

  6. Quest says:

    What made these girls popular again? Oh yeah nothing.

  7. Rita says:

    15 minutes in a Kimchi bath (Fermented Korean coleslaw) turns you into a prune and you stink so bad neither hubby or baby want anything to do with you.

  8. December says:

    Heaven forbid the world does not revolve around Kim Kardashian!

    Didn’t Kim say (stupidly) that after a year breastmilk has no nutritional value? Twit.

    I think Kim’s a lot like Jennifer Aniston. They both try to project themselves as wanting kids and settling down and being a “good” girl. And in reality, neither want kids or to settle down. Though I think Jen is waaay better than Kim by all means.

    i see more contempt in that last still shot from the show. wow. kim is a cranky pants.

  10. Wicked SteppMom says:

    FYI-If you need to dry up your breast milk & have no desire to shove produce in your bra, you can drink sage tea. I was unable to BF w/my pregnancies & am *very* well-endowed, so I was expecting to be in misery for quite a while. 1 mug of sage tea, 2-4 times per day, for 2-3 days & I was done. I also wore 2 sports bras rather than ace bandages, since ace bandages tend to roll around. If you can’t find sage tea, you can get dried sage at a health food store & a tea ball/tea bag & use about a Tbsp…I usually combined it w/another flavor.

  11. Bubbling says:

    Oh I just can’t watch them, I can only look at them. They are so effin boring and shallow as worm’s grave, I can’t

  12. margie says:

    Agree with the sage tea! I am allergic to cabbage (found that out the hard way when I was trying to dry my milk) and sage tea was a lifesaver.

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    If you nurse your baby long enough (in my experience, until 2 years of age) baby ends up weaning himself. No fuss, no muss, no pain. Just gradually ends…

  14. alma says:

    omg Kim’s face doesn’t move at all! How sad that she had so much work done in her face.

  15. stephanie says:

    Look how hard kim tries… Especially in the last picture. Its annoying. You’re not a supermodel kim!I’m from NYC , its cold!! Put on your coat and put it away!! We’ve all seen it already!!!

  16. jessica says:

    Kim’s closed mouth roll at 3:25 is priceless… lol

  17. original kate says:

    kathie lee gifford HAD to do the miss america pageant 6 weeks after her kid was born? mmmkay.

  18. MYMY says:

    This baby talk is beyond phony and disturbing. Nice try Kin to make it about you.

  19. susanne says:

    I’m impressed that she bf this long. It takes quite a committment- you can’t be away from kid (or pump) for very long.

    I would think she’s too self-centered to bother. who knew?

  20. Aries_Mira says:

    My little one was weaned at 17 months, and she did it on her terms. I never did experience mastitis (thank god!) , but I did have a clogged milk duct early on and it is unbelievably painful! Hot and cold compresses, a hand pump and different nursing positions finally released it.

  21. Isa says:

    I wish I could’ve decided when I wanted to wean.

    Kim looks so uncomfortable sitting there trying not to look fat.

  22. Richi says:

    Isn’t Kim feeling cold out there in the last pic???
