The Kourtney Kardashian-Kim Kardashian KUWTK fist-fight was bonkers

Last November, Kourtney Kardashian sort of announced that she would take a step back from Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kourtney has been unhappy for a very long time – I’ve said before that I think Kourtney is just an unhappy person in general, and I think she seeks out therapists who do not actually provide much help, plus she’s lazy as hell and she never does the work of “being fulfilled as a person.” For the past few “seasons” of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe, Kim and Kourtney have been at each other’s throats, and it’s often Khloe and Kim telling Kourtney that she’s being a lazy a–hole, and then Kourtney cries and says that they’re bullying her and on and on. I feel like that happened again? This led to one of the worst physical fights between the sisters ever, and the cameras were there to cover it:

This is the fight which led to Kourtney’s announcement that she was stepping back from filming last November. And honestly… I still feel the same way, which is that Kourtney is the a–hole. I know that’s an unpopular opinion and almost everyone is like “no, Kim is always the a–hole.” But Jesus Christ, Kourtney is just such a stupid, self-absorbed jackass. And as much as she whines about how “raising her kids” is such a priority, she dumps those (very unhappy) children constantly so that she can travel and go on all of those trips by herself or with some silent young boyfriend. It’s not that hard, just leave the family and leave the KUWTK production and go away and be “private.” Why do I have such strong feelings about this? I don’t know. But lord, Kourtney is the worst. And that fight was SO BAD.

Kourtney’s tweets about the drama. Yeah, raising your kids is a job. But…

    These are grown ass women fighting like toddlers. They all need to grow up.

    • Nanny to the Rescue says:

      Indeed. Are there no adults on this show?

    • Swack says:


    • theothercleo says:

      This. They’re pathetic. Kim is 39 and Kourtney is 40,they’re both mothers and they’re fighting with their sister on TV to get attention and money. This family is toxic.

    • Tomatonose says:

      give us the plastic surgery tips, miss guru and all..

    • mika says:

      I dont know. I have sisters, and a brother we are very very close. Normally everything is great and they are my best friends. Also I am an adult and am extremely balanced emotionally in my day to day life. But once or twice a year, something snaps around my siblings and we all become teenagers again and we fight UGLY.

      Cant hate on the Kardashians for this one. I get it.

      • vesper says:

        Same….I have two younger sisters and we fight constantly with each other and our mom. LOL! But we also are totally ride or die for each other. So I can relate to the dynamic between the Kardashians. But Kourtney is way more passive than me, I would have never let my unhappiness build to such a breaking point. I feel she has some level of jealousy because she isn’t as ambitious as her sisters. Kim and Khloe really had their sights on building their brands, Kourtney was just floating on their coattails. Frankly, I think she was staring to hate herself for being such a bandwagoner and not having her own dream. Girl needs some serious follow thru in her own life. And she isn’t that engaged as a parent, anyone can see that.

  2. Ali says:

    I’m in the camp Kim is always the a–hole.

    So kourtney quits the show because she doesn’t want to do it.

    But no mention of her kids father. Isnt he watching the kids when she is away?

    • FC says:

      I actually like Kourtney. If I was that rich, I’d prioritize raising my kids and just enjoy my wealth. “Work” in this sense means wearing spandex bodysuits in the spotlight 24/7—Kim and Khloe have always been more about that. Kourt just wants to collect her KUWTK paycheck and be a rich LA mom with a hot f*ckboy sidepiece. Nothing wrong with that.

      • FC says:

        I also give Kourt points for staving off the inflated lips/ass trend.

      • Keiji says:

        I think there’s nothing wrong with having boundaries, but you can’t have the best of both worlds. If she quits she will lose the benefits she gets from the show, but she doesn’t want that. I think they’re all rich and famous enough that they don’t need the show anymore. They probably feel bad though about the jobs the crew will lose.

      • milliebillie says:

        Kourtney is my least fav. Her whole thing is motherhood and pretending to be religious and this is her excuse whenever she’s being criticized, but she does not discipline her kids and leaves the parenting to nannies. Kendall even said she was the worst mom out of all the sisters. She also just seems really dumb. I’m really curious which memorial she’s describing as boring? Also she said God was punishing the world with coronavirus, which is insane?

    • AnnaKist says:

      Isn’t he also really busy with his own young sweetheart?

    • Erinn says:

      I mean, Kortney can ALSO be an a-hole too. I don’t really watch the show or anything – but I’ve been desperate enough between GOOD shows that I’ve watched some chunks of it over the years.

      I’ve watched Kortney shame her sisters quite a bit about food. On her blog she promotes unsupported claims for things like turmeric being a solution to so many issues (you’d have to ingest SO much of it to get ANY minor benefit) and things like that. She’s obsessive about food in a very unhealthy way, and she pushes that on to everyone around her. To the point where she was opening one of the other sisters fridge and railing on about how horrible their reasonably healthy fridge of food was. She’s one of the woo-woo people who believe any trendy bit of food ‘wisdom’ and she’s militant about it. Didn’t she also go after schools for not feeding the kids up to her insane level of standards as well?

      I find she’s the most self-righteous of the bunch, honestly. She seems to think she has SO much more moral high ground than the others for some reason. I guess maybe because she hasn’t screwed with her body as much? At the end of the day though, she’s just another dummy who’s riding on the fame afforded by Kim’s sex tape.

      Team “they’re all giant asshats”.

      • Original Jenns says:

        SAME! The main reason I’m team no one, and Kourtney is an a-hole is that during one fight she shamed them for working, saying that her priority is her kids, not work, and that she’s just different from them in that way. So, basically, if you work, your kids are not your priority and also, so priviledged because most people have to work to take care of their kids, Kourt! They are all looney in their own way, but she’s the most self righteous, and I think this continued argument stems from her still thinking that way. It’s not that she doesn’t want to do the show, that’s her right, it’s the judgment she passes on working moms – and don’t tell me that’s not what she means, that’s exactly what she said awhile back. Must be nice that the job your sisters are doing keeps the money rolling in for all of your quack diets and vacations away from your kids.

    • Jen says:

      Yeah. I think Kourtney has been pressured to keep doing the show by her sisters for a couple years when she just isn’t interested in doing it anymore. That’s her choice and doesn’t make her wrong.

      • Keiji says:

        No, they’re happy for her to leave if it makes her happy, but she’s half in half out which means the other sisters have more workload and less time with their own kids.

  3. OriginalLala says:

    I mean, can’t they all be A-holes? They are all desperate, attention-seeking a-holes who will do anything for any kind of attention, including wearing blackface, cultural appropriation, defending Trump, and the list goes on..yeah, they’re all A-holes.

    • sunny says:

      Truly they are. Also I am amazed they fight like this- they are adults!

    • Arpeggi says:

      Yep! They can all be a-holes and also maybe Kourtney is actually suffering from depression? We all know that this family doesn’t deal with mental health issues properly (or acknowledge them) so it can only get bad, right? Still a-holes though

    • Reece says:


  4. TIFFANY says:

    I just don’t believe this….none of it.

    Although I will say Kim was scrappy in those fight scenes.

  5. runcmc says:

    I’m not gonna watch the fight video but about her tweet: three of her sisters are moms and on the show. It’s pretty judgy of Kourtney to be like “but I’m a mom and my kids are my priority!” … she’s basically implying her sisters don’t care about their kids as much as she cares about hers. Rude.

    • Esp.Lumiere says:


      I watch the show. Kim can be the a**hole a lot of the time. But honestly, Kourtney makes money off the show and she doesn’t do anything/reveal anything. I’m glad she’s off it. Her whining is just annoying. I dont feel bad for her at all.

      • Melissa says:

        None of them reveal anything outside of bad script writing.

      • AnnaKist says:

        But isn’t that her contribution to the show? After all, every sit-com has pretty much the same formula; the smart, witty character, the dopey character, the overbearing/loud/judgy/nerdy/slutty/lazy etc. character. Then one of he main characters decides to bow out of the show, presuming her star has risen sufficiently that she can name her price for another hit show, which never eventuates and she fades into oblivion while her old show limps along for another season or two before being shot dead and buried quietly by the network… We live in hope.

      • geekychick says:

        I always liked Kourtney best, because I think she knows how bonkers their fame is nad let’s it be known in a passive-agressive way- That’s her function on the show. and tbh, Kim was the ahole. She always treats Kourtney like she is beneath her and K’s love to pile on her.

      • Tomatonose says:

        @annkist, nerdy? Please don’t give them too much credit.

  6. Cmc says:

    She rarely travels without her kids and when she does it’s because Scott has custody of them at the time. Kim does not comprehend that mental self care is a thing and eviscerated both Rob and Kendall for having mental illness, on television. All Kourtney wanted was out of a show that destroyed almost every meangingful relationship she ever had. Can’t imagine anyone actually thinking Kourt is in the wrong here.

    • Swack says:

      She’s wrong in the fact that she is teaching her children that violence is a way to settle things.

      • L says:

        Kim attacked Kourtney.

        I don’t know why Kourtney is getting the blame, did you watch the video? Kim threw hands and Kourtney tried to defend herself. Then Kourtney was crying while Kim sat behind Kendall all smug.

        Kim is always the aggressor.. Look up the Bentley scene where she attacks her siblings with her handbag. She is also manipulative. There’s what, 18 seasons showing the piece of work that Kim is.

        For someone that wants to be a lawyer, she clearly has trouble solving arguments with intellect rather than fists… Kim is like her mother.

      • Pinetree13 says:

        That’s not true L. Kourtney scratched Kim to the level she made her bleed. Kim slapped her hard after that. The whole thing is messed but kourtney got physical first

  7. Kat says:

    First thought that popped up was ‘pathetic’. Who the hell fights like this at that age??

  8. Zapp Brannigan says:

    This family is enmeshed and toxic as hell, and you only have to look at who parented these women to see why. The best thing all of them can do is live their lives at an appropriate emotional distance from each other, establish firm boundaries and get the hell off my tv.

  9. MellyMel says:

    They’re definitely all a-holes, but if Kourtney is that miserable, she should go. I don’t get the excuse that she’s a mom that needs to spend time with her kids, when all of them except Kendall are moms, but whatever. She doesn’t need the money, let her go.

    • Heather says:

      Disclaimer: I have a 16 year old daughter who likes watching this show with me. Hence, I must admit that I actually watch it.
      I am 100% Team Kim/Khloe on this one. Kourtney was given the option to leave the show last season; she declined to quit. And now she’s complaining about every single aspect of doing the show, right down to “doing glam” to prepare for it. Khloe suggested that she just not do heavy make-up, then, and Kourtney said no way, she wouldn’t be filmed without full make-up.

  10. Melissa says:

    So when getting naked isn’t doing it anymore and you’ve either aged out of the wedding stories or the NBA has opted out, cue the physical altercation.

    If I had to pick a side, Kourtney is the least offensive – now I feel like a raccoon selecting the most palatable piece of garbage for lunch.

  11. Astrid says:

    The pictures of them in this post looks like a Halloween Party event. They all look crazy tweaked and pulled and tanned with flesh hanging out.

  12. grabbyhands says:

    I can’t understand why people still think this is real – every second of their lives is scripted and I’m sure PMK already has the roll out of stories for TMZ right through to the eventual “reconciliation”.

    Let’s face it – the whole family had a round table of how to draw attention back from the pandemic coverage and this is what they came up with. Next up, several weeks worth of content of someone in the family thinking they have COVID19 (or at least, pretending they think they do). I wonder who will get chosen for this story line?

  13. Rae says:

    Team Kourtney, to be honest.

    • Jules says:

      I’m team no one and I won’t watch the clip… but from what I’ve seen and read, Kim is just deplorable. And Kourtney, even though she is a Kardashian, really seems to loathe her sisters and what they represent. Almost as if she hates herself for being part of it too? So I’m not gonna hate on her for quitting the show, if she really wants to separate from the trash of it all, do it.

      • Hoot says:

        Jules – I held off watching the first clip, but eventually I gave in and I did. You hit the nail on the head in your second and third sentences, especially with what Kourtney says near the end. She “hates being a celebrity.” These three sisters have been too enmeshed with their family for soooo long – it has reached a point where they must separate and live their own lives without so much input from each other.

        The fight scene was abominable, but with all the negative verbal sparring they constantly do with each other the tension was bound to explode. I hope they do not act like this in front of the children. Their interaction with each other sets a poor example, and children emulate what they learn in their environment. I can’t imagine what their teachers will have to put up with when all the kids are in school… the acting out will be epic.

  14. Jen says:

    We all know how scripted this is, but I think there is some real resentment toward Kourtney and the idea that she doesn’t pull her own weight and just enjoys all of the benefits. Kourtney seems like a genuinely unhappy person to me-not sure why she doesn’t take a step back from this circus if she keeps saying she wants to.

    But the only real takeaway I have from this is dying over Khloe wiping foundation and body makeup off the walls after the fight. Those white Kardashian houses must be covered in makeup, their poor housekeepers.

  15. Lucy2 says:

    I’d like to slap all of them, to be honest, but I’m an adult.
    I think that clip is the most I’ve ever seen of their show, and I am definitely not missing anything.
    They all look bananas, and it looks like Khloe’s original face is starting to creep back through all her plastic surgery.

  16. Busyann says:

    Honestly, I think I’ve only seen maybe 20 KUWTK episodes so I dont know much about their dynamics on the show, but what turned me off was Kourtney. I saw the first few episodes when she was still with Scott and I couldn’t understand how and why he stayed with her for so long. Kourtney seems so cruel and stuck up. I cheered when they finally broke up. So, while I don’t condone fighting, and it’s especially tacky on reality tv, I’m not surprised this happened. I would have thought it would have been Khloe against Kourtney though. Khloe seems more…scrappy.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Kourtney was HORRIBLE to Scott. And don’t get me wrong Scott had and has his issues. But I remember how utterly cold she was to him when his parents died. Even Scott said that he felt like he was living with a robot.

      • A says:

        I remember thinking the same – Scott lost his parents in quick succession, and Kourtney didn’t seem to have any empathy for him. She seems really emotionally repressed, though Kim is basically a robot too.

        I’m curious what the dynamic was between Kris and Rob Kardashian – all the kids seem to have issues.

      • Karmak says:

        She was ice cold. Kourtney cared more about Scott’s parents house, and the value of it once she fixed it up. I think that was the reason Scott sold the house. I just happened to be home sick and saw the show. I’m not a fan. After seeing her attitude….. I never watched any of the KUWTK shows.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    I mean that family is toxic AF, so I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting to get out? Who really wants to live two decades of their life in front of a camera?? I mean, they’re all awful people at this point, anyway. You can’t be a normal, ethical person and last that long on reality TV. You’ve got the money at this point. Just leave!

    I will say, out of the bunch of them, Kourtney is the one who’s had the least dramatic work done. As the result, she doesn’t have that startlingly plastic look the way Kim or the others do when you see them in still frames on camera. She still looks mostly like herself outside of the obvious nose job and makeup.

  18. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Kourtney is DEFINITELY the a-hole. And always has been. She has coasted on everyone’s coattails- specifically Kim’s. And it’s why Kim has always resented her. She literally just doesn’t want to work – and it’s not like what she’s being asked to do is hard. Show up to a meeting, show up for a photo shoot. That’s it. And she can’t even do that. She IS lazy.

    • Kay says:

      Agreed. I know Kourtney is trying to establish her lifestyle thing but what has Kourtney done on her own in the last decade? She depends on Kim

  19. Michelle says:

    I have never seen one episode of this trash and I feel like I have not missed a thing. Will we ever be in a place in our lives when these women aren’t pimping themselves out to stay relevant? I hope it is sooner than later. There’s more important things going on than what is going on in their lives.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    So, the only right answer here is they’re all a-holes. They’re creating a narrative for viewers and for some reason people take it very very seriously.

    Kim is the worst to me because SHE HAS ACTUALLY PRAISED TRUMP. You all can say whatever you want, that is legitimately the worst.

  21. Case says:

    I feel like I’ve read a lot about how Kourtney doesn’t actually spend much time with her children — she has nannies (obviously) and that her kids are super poorly behaved, which was something they actually touched on in the show. So this whole narrative that she doesn’t have time for the show because she’s a full-time mom seems like nonsense.

    You know who essentially bowed out of the show with no drama, works hard, and genuinely seems like a great mom? Kylie!

  22. Linda says:

    The show is fake. The fight was fake, badly choreographed and Khloe couldn’t stop laughing. Why is this being discussed as if it was real?

  23. ME says:

    They’re just desperate for ratings. Most of their show is fake and scripted. Why do we even think any of this sh*t is real?

  24. JennyJenny says:

    Scripted ~ you can tell by how fake Khloe comes across during the whole episode. This is something they’ve never done on their show before, they are obviously just reaching for straws.

  25. Rachel says:

    Why is it so hard to understand that Kourtney doesnt want live for the tv show…. it’s her choice.

  26. Suzieq359 says:

    Definitely scripted and Khloe couldn’t pull off a seemingly real reaction. Kourt wasn’t acting. Her emotional voice showed she was legit upset. I think Kim slapped Kourt harder than they agreed to and Kourt proceeding to fight back strong and real. You know Kim was fake cuz she hid her face from the camera and immediately went to check her makeup. And Kenny stayed back through it all.

  27. MangoAngel says:

    I think Kendall is the most mature and even-keeled out of all of them. And that’s something, when the model is the normal one.

  28. Anne says:

    My only takeaway from this was the smear of KKW beauty foundation/ bronzer/ body make up on the white wall.

  29. Lisa says:

    WHY DO YOU ALWAYS PROP UP KIM. In every article!!!!! Admit you like her a lot 🙄

  30. babsjohnson says:

    I’m amazed at how good Kim looks. She was a wreck a few months ago but that makeover did wonders.
    No comment on the staged fight.

    • jenner says:

      You’re joking… right?

    • MangoAngel says:

      @BABSJOHNSON — We must not be looking at the same Kim. She looks like she’s had bicycle tire tubes inserted into her lips and plastic moulding into her cheeks.

  31. Louise says:

    And half sister, Klobacca, plays referee.

  32. Rosalyn says:

    There are a number of underlying issues here. Kourtney really bullied Kim when they were kids/teens and Kim has always disliked her. Kourtney has never healed from her parent’s divorce and despises her mom because of it. Unfortunately for her, the architects of their success are Kim and Kris. She needs therapy and time to heal. I feel for her, but I also see Kim and Khloe’s frustration at her indecisiveness about being part of the show.

  33. jaylee says:

    This is the best episode I’ve ever seen! My only complaint is that I wish production got a better angle on the slaps. Feels like a real missed opportunity.

  34. No Doubt says:

    So fake. Kim immediately goes to the mirror to make sure all the work she’s had done to her face is okay.

  35. serena says:

    Even if it wasn’t for her kids, if she wants out of the show.. let her be. It doesn’t help anyone if she’s there with a long face, miserable (as she had been done recently I guess? I don’t watch the show). Kim and Khloe are bullies, and they know exactly what they’re doing and how their words hurt.. not saying Kourtney is a saint, pretty sure she’s also an a*hole, but I’m on her side on this.

  36. Shannon Brown says:

    That was effing awesome! I would watch this show if they did that every week. As it is, I can’t stand any of these women. Though, to each their own.

  37. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I remember the season of KUWTK when Kim and Kris Humphries were engaged and Kim swung hard on Kris because he messed up her nail polish or something. She hit him with a closed fist too. So Kim definitely has no problem fighting, on camera no less.

    • ME says:

      She also hit Khloe with her purse once…back when Kim got her first Bentley and accused Khloe of being jealous. I think Kim thinks the family has to kiss her ass because you know she “made them all rich and famous”.

  38. Summer says:

    Fake or not. My sisters kids would fight and it made me so uncomfortable. I mean throwing down at the beach,etc. She would just let them. I taught my two girls that violence is never the answer. And that it is never ok. They’ve never once had a physical altercation. There ARE ways around it.

  39. AGreatDane says:

    Gonna play armchair psychologist here (since half of this stuff is super scripted): Kourtney never got over her parent’s divorce, and she knew Kris’ dirt and held water for her, only for Kim (and now Kylie) to be Kris’ favorite. She was closer to Rob Sr. and now he’s gone and she’s been pouty ever since.

  40. RoyalBlue says:

    I don’t watch this show and even I know this is all scripted. This is just Kourtney’s exit story. She probably wanted out and that was how they went about it.

  41. Nibbi says:

    I’ve always thought that show was completely scripted and fake from the short clips ive been able to get through, but i’ve gotta say i’m impressed with that level of bitch-slapping. really seemed like passionate, from-the-heart bitch-slapping. embarassing AF for two grown-ass adults, but i mean wow, could they possibly have faked that sort of heartfelt bitch-slapping violence?
