After a string of dramatic rows that involved not only the Kardashian family but the KUWTK production crew, things came to a head with the warring siblings as the future of the show continues to look uncertain.


E!

Despite sharing incredibly intimate and personal events in her life, including her breakup with Scott Disick and the dramatic birth of her first child, Kourtney has recently taken a step back from the show, favouring privacy with her kids.

But this has caused a rift within the family as Kim and Khloé Kardashian accused both Kourtney and momager Kris Jenner of not pulling their weight where the show is concerned.

“Kourt spends a lot of time off-camera and won’t talk about her relationship,” Kim said at the beginning of the latest episode. “You’ll see paparazzi photos of her and her guy that I can’t say his name on the show because Kourtney doesn’t want to.”

In a confessional interview, Kourtney said that she felt like her sisters put the show before her, later adding that she didn’t want to film in a “toxic environment”.

After feedback from fans highlighted that the viewers thought Kourtney “hides a lot of her life from the cameras”, Kim and Khloé revealed that they share more of their own personal lives to compensate.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I told production before I told my family members because I wanted them to be able to capture when I first told my family something like that,” Khloé said.

She continued: “When big things are happening in one of our lives, it’s our job to articulate that to the powers that be and make sure that all of this is captured and documented and in an appropriate way.”

At one point, Kim said she’d be happy for Kourtney to take a break, but revealed that her frustration was about having to “cover more hours” on the show as a result.

“I am so happy for Kourtney if she needs time away or a break or something,” Kim said in her confessional interview. “However, the anger and frustration for Khloe and I is we are putting in more work covering her hours.”

And, in a heated phone call with Kris Jenner, Khloé voiced her frustrations, name-dropping her cheating scandal with Tristan Thompson as an example of having to share more than she wants to.

“Kourtney gives us nothing. They get all my cheating stuff, they get all this other shit that I wish would go away,” Khloé vented. “Is it my job? Sure, I take one for the family team.”

But things got worse when, in a video call with Kourtney, Kim threatened to fire her for not being present and pulling her weight on the show.


E!

“We have a proposal for you. It starts with an F and ends with a D,” Kim said, later adding, “Everyone needs a fucking consequence. Let’s show her — if she doesn’t wanna show up, she doesn’t wanna work, she has too many fucking boundaries, she’s out.”

Still, Kourtney wouldn’t budge. “If Kim thinks she has the power to fire me from our family show, it’s just crazy,” she said. “Sometimes we just need a break, and I don’t want to film with Kim.”

But it wasn’t just Kourtney who Kim and Khloé were mad at. In another phone call with Kris about not filming, Kim suggested they boot both her and Kourtney from the show.


E!

When Kris said, “If you don’t want me on the show, I don’t have to be on the show,” Kim quickly shot back, “OK, so let’s kick off you and Kourtney.”

The episode culminated in a fight that involved the KUWTK production crew, and things didn’t exactly get any better. In fact, when a producer suggested that Kourtney be more present, she argued back before eventually removing her mic and walking out.

Last month, it was revealed in an interview that Kourtney would be taking a break from KUWTK in order to spend more quality time with her children.

“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she said.

This weekend marks the series finale of KUWTK and sees the family head to Wyoming to try to sort the drama out once and for all. However, if the teaser trailer was anything to go by, I wouldn’t hold your breath…
