Kourtney Kardashian’s ex boyfriend Younes Bendjima is being sued after he allegedly attacked a security guard at Coachella who refused to let him enter the restroom with Kourtney. Mario Herrera says he was working the music festival back in…
Chicago West was ready for primetime this week.
Not that the infant was really given a choice.
On the latest installment of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim and Kanye’s surrogate was very close to giving birth (man, these episodes were filmed a loooong time ago), as the series gave fans an inside look at Kardashian’s baby-naming process.
How did she arrive at North and then Saint and, as we all know by now, Chicago?
While at lunch with Kourtney, Kim said that she might want to look at “zodiac signs” as inspirations for her thid child.
Kourtney wasn’t in love with the idea, however, strangely commenting: “No, that’s like, the devil.”
In the end, of course, Kim and her rapping husband went with the city in which the latter was born over anything allegedly related to Satan.
“They’re gonna go crazy and then they’ll get used to it, and then they’ll go, ‘oh that’s normal,'” Kim remarked, acknowledging the likely reaction to this unusual name.
The name clearly is way out there, but the child herself is quite adorable:
Elsewhere, let’s remain on the topic of babies…
Khloe was also close to giving birth during this episode, and she made a major/awkward announcement at one point.
She decided between Kim and Kourtney as the godparent of her impending daughter.
“I always thought Kourtne would be the godparent of my child,” she said in a confessional.
However, Khloe admitted that she had grown closer to Kim of late, prompting Kourtney to almost campaign for the gig by dissing her sibling as a mother.
“You know who’s always sick? North and Saint,” she said to Khloe, sort of randomly and definitely with an ulterior motive.
Could Kris Jenner be of any assistance?
When Khloe asked her mom for advice, Kris compared the parenting style of Kim and Kourtney, both of whom have three children.
“Kourtney has a certain set of values and she goes to church,” she said, adding of Kim:
“She’s very hands on with the home work … the grooming’s impeccable.”
Okay, so: Kourtney will try to instill positive, Christian values in your child and Kim will make sure she looks stylist.
Who do you choose, Khloe?
Kim, of course!
“From what I envision my parenting style to be, I envision it more like Kim, a little bit stricter,” Khloe said, causing further friction between herself and Kourtney.
“Once Khloe has her own daughter and she is really a mom she will realize we have more in common than she thinks as far as parenting styles,” Kourtney later told the camera.
There was also a very dumb flash mob non-prank this week, along with a tease about next Sunday’s episode.
As the installment concluded, we were given got a rare peek into Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy, with the family discovered she was going into labor.
In a testimonial shot, the beauty expert explained of her pregnancy.
“I’m not trying to keep a secret. I’m really doing this for myself.”
Well, the secret is now out.
And we’ll learn a lot more about it next Sunday, apparently.
This season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has featured one very prominent feud between family members.
Loyal viewers have watched as Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian have teamed up and tried to bring down Kourtney Kardashian due to her lack of committment to hanging with her siblings.
On Sunday night, however, a different kind of family feud broke out.
A literal family feud broke out.
Because these same siblings and their loved ones were featured on… you guessed it by now probably… FAMILY FEUD!
The game show!
All did not go smoothly leading up to this special appearance, however, as Kris Jenner discovered that the family’s opponent, Paris Hilton and her relatives, had dropped out just 24 hours prior to taping.
Talk about a major crisis!
Why not Kanye West and his family, Kim suggested quickly, almost as if this had been the scripted plan all along?
So it was then decided: Kanye, Kim and his cousins would take on Kris, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and their cousin Cici Bussey.
Due to the uneven numbers, Jonathan Cheban was asked by Kim fly out from Miami at 4 a.m. to participate on Kris and Khloe’s squad.
There was just one problem wth this plan, Khloe pointed out:
“Love Jonathan and all but he’s not a Kardashian.”
Others agreed and, therefore, on the day of the taping, a suggestion was floating for Kris Jenner’s mom, Mary Jo, to take Jonathan’s spot on the show.
“Jonathan should not be on our team,” Khloe said, to which an annoyed Kim shot back:
“How do I break the news to Jonathan that he’s not gonna play, and he just got on a plane at the drop of a dime.”
(Editor’s Note: This may, literally, have been the biggest First World Problem of all-time.)
Could Cheban just go on Kim and Kanye’s team?
“Jonathan’s a big boy … I’m not going to kick one of my family [members] off TV,” the rapper replied. “It’s their first time on TV.”
“Jonathan gets on TV all the time.”
To conclude this enthralling debate, host Steve Harvey stepped in said producers could put Kris and MJ on the same mic and have an uneven number of teammates.
Upon losing against her own family, Kim directed the blame right at Kanye’s cousins, saying:
“Kanye’s cousins sunk it for us, not gonna lie.”
Elsewhere, Kourtney and Scott Disick went at it.
The former was angry about the latter introducing his young girlfriend, Sofia Richie, to the ex-couple’s three children.
“So last night we got home, the kids were there. So, of course, they met my girlfriend,” Scott told her simply.
Kris then appeared to take Scott’s side.
“I don’t understand why she can introduce her boyfriend to the kids but you can’t introduce your girlfriend,” she told him.
The latest disagreement between these exes featured Scott accusing Kourtney of being “overly controlling.”
This is a word she REALLY hates being used against her. The mother of three defended herself as follows:
“We have rules. Kids need rules. It’s not hard.”
In a confessional, Kourtney added that being controlling or not has nothing to do with the situation.
“He gets everyone on his side and tries to play the victim,” she explained.
In the end, Scott did apologize for not giving Kourtney a heads up about the meeting between Mason, Reign, Penelope and Sofia.
As a result, the episode’s second feud came to a rather quiet conclusion.
Ted Lieu thinks Kim Kardashian is doing stand-up work with clemency and prison reform, but the congressman says Donald Trump should be swayed by more than just beautiful celebs. We got Ted outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and he…
Keeping Up with the Kardashians asked viewers to suspend their disbelief this week.
First, because the episode was filmed WAY back in December and focused on the family’s celebration of Christmas.
Second, because Kris Jenner believed she was the target of a murder plot.
We’ll get a summation of the latter storyline over first.
We actually have documented it at length already, sharing multiple clips of Kris Jenner initially testing her drinking water for samples of poison and then being tricked by Kim and Kylie into believing Kourtney was out for her.
Totally hilarious… we guess?
Definitely not totally scripted by producers desperate for some levity… right?
Elsewhere this Sunday, the crux of the installment centered on further tension between Kim, Khloe and Kourtney.
“We really haven’t resolved anything with Kourtney since the therapy session,” Kim said early on in a confessional, adding:
“We’ve so much more to really hash out and it just hasn’t happened yet, so we’ve just all been kind of walking on eggshells around each other.”
As chronicled on The Hollywood Gossip, this filmed rivalry has been ugly and intense at times, while almost definitely phony.
At one point on this episode, Kourtney said she didn’t want to invite Scott Disick to her mother’s holiday party, which caused quite the backlash for some reason.
“You have to invite Scott,” Kris told her eldest child. “You can’t just have him come to a party for 10 years as part of our family, he’s still part of our family.”
Speaking of the party and of invites… why did Caitlyn Jenner not receive one, Kendall wondered?
Simple, Kim replied:
“Scott has never done anything mean or said anything negative. So that’s different.”
It certainly is true that Caitlyn had some harsh things to say about his relatives, most notably Kris Jenner, during his promotional book tour last fall.
But Kendall wasn’t satisfied with this response about her dad, snapping back at Kim:
“Is that actually a joke?. They’ve both done f-cked up things in different ways.”
Kourtney basically agreed with Kendall’s point and emphasized that whether Disick would be a part of the gathering or not was her call in the end.
“This is exactly why my sisters and I haven’t been getting along. They just don’t have my back and they don’t take my feelings into consideration,” she told the camera.
“And now I feel like the same thing’s happening with Kendall. If it’s not exactly what they think there is always criticism and judgement and I’m not here to be criticized every day.”
Kourtney added that she’s “so over everyone and their bitchiness” and even confided in Kendall that she wanted to skip family Christmas altogether this year.
Kendall, of course, shared this admission with Kim and Khloe, who just used it as fuel in their fiery rage against their sister.
“She drives me so crazy, I just don’t even know what to do,” an annoyed Kim said at one point.
Kourtney eventually acquiesced and stuck around for the celebration, but only after Disick vowed to be nice to her then-boyfriend, Younes Bendjima.
Oh, then there was the whole dual pregnancy thing.
This episode was filmed so long ago that Khloe had not yet announced she was expecting, but she was waiting on Kylie to do the same, wanting to give her younger sister a “time to shine” and also wanting to stay out of the spotlight until she was showing.
“I’m just like, chubby right now,” Khloe confessed during a conversation with Kris. “I don’t want someone to be like, ‘Are you pregnant or just hungry?'”
Finally, Kylie called Khloe and said her pregnancy confirmation was forthcoming.
“I just don’t want to be in the spotlight,” the Kylie Cosmetics founder explained. “I’m just gonna be low-key.”
That surprisingly did end up being the case, with Kylie saying almost noting about her status in public until after her daughter was born.
But these cast members had a lot to say last night!

Scott Disick acted like a self-centered jerk with a drinking problem on Keeping Up with the Kardashians this week.
We’ll give you a few minutes to pick your jaw up off the floor before we explain why…
Prior to taking a trip to Miami for an event called Art Basel, the irritating father of three gushed to Kris Jenner about his newest business venture: flipping homes.
Kris, actually proud of her quasi son-in-law, bragged on his behalf at one point, actually saing:
“My entire family leans on you for our design advice from time to time.”
Down in Florida, Disick explained his plan was to “look into new art that I can start putting into some of my new houses” and later said he yearns to be a “modern day Martha Stewart.”
Stewart is alive and still doing her thing, but point taken we guess.
Moreover, Kris’ boyfriend (and future husband?) Corey Gamble had even arranged a series of meetings with galleries for Disick.
It all looked to be coming together…
… until we cut to a producer telling Gamble that Disick “was out super late last night and he is dead asleep.”
Back in Los Angeles, an annoyed Corey vented to Jenner that Scott didn’t show up after they had prepared for weeks for the trip.
Corey had flown to Miami just for Scott and didn’t even see him during his time there.
“He did not surface … he had a wild night,” Corey told Kris.
Cue Jenner’s confrontation with the man she had only recently praised for one of the first times ever.
“You invited Corey to Art Basel so you could look at pieces for your home and then you bailed,” Kris said. “If you’re gonna go do Art Basel then go do Art Basel. Don’t do Art Basel and pretend like it’s spring break.”
“I didn’t think it was the worst thing to be able to go away for a few days and chill,” Scott replied.
“But when you f-ck up, you don’t just f-ck up a little bit, you f-ck up,” Kris explained. “Sometimes these little setbacks can cost you dearly.”
In the end, Disick totally understood and apologized.
“This is crazy,” he confessed to the camera, adding:
“As much as I understand that I need to be responsible, I don’t know when I ever said that I can’t go out. I’m doing my best in life, but I still like to have fun when I can.”
Thankfully for Kris, she had a couple of ways to distract herself this week:
First, she tried to act as Khloe’s nutritionist and personal trainer.
As previously teased, Jenner brought her pregnant daughter a boatload of donuts, much to Khloe’s dismay… and disgust.
“If I want a doughnut or cookies, I’ll eat them. I’m not depriving myself,” Khloe said after turning them down.
“Everything I’m doing is instructed by my doctor and I would love to avoid a c-section if possible, but if my baby turns out to be really big, I’m gonna have to get a c-section.”
Jenner also went to work out with Khloe, who visited her doctor at one point during the episode and was told the pregnancy was goinga along smoothly.
Finally, Kim took a break from cursing off Kourtney to play the role of mortician.
This is the person who puts makeup on dead people prior to their funerals or memorials.
“I’ve been dying, no pun intended, I’ve been dying to know the tricks of the trade and like, what concealer mortician’s use,” Kim claimed to the camera, clearly desperate for a new storyline.
“I know death is such a morbid topic but I’m like obsessed.” added Kim, who, along with makeup artist and KKW Beauty collaborator Mario Dedivanovic, visited an actual mortuary.
She also tried out this potential new job on her mother, who acted like a corpse in one weird scene.
So… does Kim have a new occupation?
Will she go work in a funeral home?
“I know this is way too heavy for me to ever really take on. But, I’ve learned so much being here and I’m really grateful for the experience,” Kim said toward the end of the episode.
“And I’m really glad that Mario came along ‘cause now I know if, when the day comes [that I die], I’ll be in good hands.”
Well, alrighty then!

Younes Bendjima’s flying solo now, and because of that … it appears his mode of transportation’s a lot more basic than what it used to be. Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-bf was spotted out by himself in WeHo Thursday in very casual attire, before…
They’re tearing this family apart! Or … are they?
A new report says that the sisters are basically just faking all of this for the cameras. Take a look.
RadarOnline reports that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians drama is at least partly just for show.
“Their fight this season is so overly dramatic,” a source close to the Kardashians admits, revealing: “and they all know it.”
That said, there’s some very real tension underlying all of this.
“There is no doubt that the three of them aren’t as close as they used to be,” the insider acknowledges.
“But,” the source says. “They all knew they needed something big to start off the season.”
It seems to be working.
Beneath all of the exaggerations, there are some genuine contentions between the sisters.
“Kourtney,” the insider confirms. “Doesn’t want to be on the show anymore.”
She’s 39 and her life isn’t what it used to be and, even if she’s still the hottest Kardashian sister, she’s over it.
“And,” the insider shares. “She doesn’t like how Kim treats everyone.”
Kim seems to treat them as if they’re all her side-kicks who should just drop everything and do what she has planned.
As you may recall, she also accused Kourtney, who is a mother of three, of essentially being a layabout whose schedule should be open.
“Khloe has been over the show for several seasons too,” the source admits.
That is understandable. She, too, has been doing it for more than a decade. It’s transformed her life, but everyone runs out of steam sooner or later.
“But,” the insider makes clear. “They exaggerated the nasty fighting.”
That’s how reality television works. You take a minor disagreement that might go unspoken in a healthy family and you follow your impulses. For drama.
And the result is that you get ratings, you get fame, and you get cold, hard cash.
“They are just all in it for the money,” the insider feels the need to explain.
We didn’t think that they were doing a reality series as the world’s weirdest charity drive.
Some might be surprised, since their heated confrontations look so real.
“By now they are all good actresses,” the source says. “Whether people want to believe it or not!”
Of course they are! And we’re not just saying that because Khloe was on that one episode of Law & Order: LA.
All of this is money — sorry, music — to the ears of momager Kris Jenner.
Kris, the insider says, “is loving every minute of it.”
No parent wants their children to squabble and fight. But if they’re just pretending to fight (mostly) and the result is that your family becomes richer by millions of dollars, that sounds worth it.
Even if you get accused of “art-shaming” one of your daughters in the process.
The sisters should be careful, however. As weird as it sounds, human nature means that sometimes, people begin to truly believe the things that they say.
The klaws kame out on the Season 15 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as Kim and Khloe ganged up on sister Kourtney like never before.
These sisters klashed over the family’s annual Khristmas kalendar, with Kim peeved that Kourtney wasn’t making herself readily available and Kourtney irritated that Kim didn’t komprehend she has three kids for whom to kare.
So… did this feud get resolved on Sunday night’s brand new installment?
We started with Kim suggesting to her siblings that they attend some counseling in order to work through a few rather clear issues.
“We all communicate really weird and we just don’t ever express what’s really bothering us and we all walk on eggshells around each other,” Kim explained.
Kourtney objected, but this storyline was in the script, so Kim insisted:
“Well we’re all going to therapy together, so it’s happening. Because we all need to communicate with a mediator and we don’t have that mediator.”
Enter that mediator!
The sisters awkwardly sat around at Khloe’s house and tried to put everything on the table for a change, as opposed to shoving it under a rug.
Said Kourtney to the professional at one point:
“I’m the one who invented mean fighting … I’m just not wanting to fight like that anymore. … I don’t want to spend my time around people that are mean and putting me down.”
From there, revealed to the mediator that Kourtney has been insecure, adding:
“But it’s also an insecurity I’ve never seen from her before.”
(NOTE: This was all filmed many months ago, long before Kourtney split from Younes Bendjmina.)
Kim, meanwhile, was taken aback by Kourtney’s claim.
She wasn’t buying the story that Kourtney was somehow the relaxed sister; or that she had been making any effort of late to let things go.
Quite the opposite, Kim argued:
“You’re preaching that you just want this Zen life and that you’re so positive and you don’t want to fight, but then most of the time you’re arguing about stuff that’s like, ‘Again?'”
Seemingly not eventrying to be cruel, just to explain where she was coming from, Kim labeled Kourtney as “always anxious and insecure.”
Said Khloe in this emotional session:
“Kourtney and I have a really special bond, I haven’t felt that from her in the past couple months and that’s been frustrating for me.
“I do feel a major disconnect between her and I specifically, and I would like to understand what that is.”
Kourtney sat and listed and waited patiently.
But she admitted that she didn’t think her sisters were “genuinely” happy for her.
“It’s like everything is…the show’s more important, work’s more important,” an emotional Kourtney confessed. “Maybe traveling isn’t a priority to you, but it is to me.”
Kourtney has the biggest family of all three siblings and admittedly works the least, but what’s wrong with that?
Why be “resentful” of her lifestyle, as Kourtney accused Kim and Khloe of being toward her?
“We honestly want Kourtney to take her trips, we want Kourtney to live her life and do whatever she wants to do,” Kim later claimed in a confessional, adding:
“We just want her to be held accountable and be responsible that when you take a job and you’re getting paid to do something that you honor that, because all of us do.”
In the end, Kourtney simply said that work wasn’t a priority for her like it is for her sisters and she didn’t understand why they focused on such petty issues.
Conversely, Khloe and Kim said that Kourtney simply wasn’t understanding their side of the issue.
Little was resolved.
“Whatever Kourtney is going through, it’s just so much deeper than me and Khloe and until Kourtney is ready to talk about it we can’t push her or try to be aggressive,” Kim later concluded camera.
“She’s going through a lot of life changes right now and we just have to let her go through that.”
Sure, either that or Kourtney just wants to hang out with her children.
