Britney Spears Gives Father Cash Bonus For Keeping Her Off Drugs

These days, Britney Spears has attained full-blown icon status and been granted admission into the pantheon of pop gods alongside Madonna and Michael Jackson.

But it wasn’t all that long ago that it looked as though Spears was headed for the kind of tragic flameout that’s all too common among stars who hit the big time while still in their teens.

Britney’s 2007 meltdown is the stuff of legend, and enough time has gone by that it’s easy to laugh at the shaved head and the umbrella-wielding attack on the paparazzi.

But the fact remains that all that erratic behavior was fueled by very real pain and mental illness — and serious indulgence in a wide array of substances.

These days, Spears is a sober and responsible mother and a consummate entertainer, still capable of wowing diehard fans on a nightly basis with her acclaimed Las Vegas residency.

It’s wonderful that she’s been able to move on from her harrowing past, but those who helped her through that difficult time are eager to ensure that she never forgets it.

And it seems there are two reasons that they want her to remain forever mindful — so that she doesn’t go down that road again, and so that she remains grateful to the ones who helped bring her back from the brink.

According to a new report published today by Radar Online, several members of Team Britney appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom today where a judge determined they were owed large sums of money by Spears’ estate in exchange for their services to the singer.

As you may recall, Britney was placed under a conservatorship in order to protect her from herself following her breakdown.

Since it seems to be working out for her, the arrangement has remained in place for over a decade.

And today, Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, and a “co-conservator” named Andrew Wallet were compensated to the tune of $ 426,000 for their roles in keeping Brit on the straight and narrow.

According to documents obtained by Radar, Jamie and Andrew argued that they provided “stability and leadership” to Britney and helped keep “literally hundreds of people in check.”

Now, bringing stability and keeping people in check are pretty vague boasts, but Jamie and Andrew’s lawyers went on to provide some specifics:

“By way of example, and not by way of limitation, at the planning stages of the Circus Tour, the Declarant instructed entertainment counsel to spread the risk of the Conservatee failing to fulfill her duties on tour because of some third party providing illegal substances,” they claimed.

“The financial stakes were high, and failure was not an option.”

That’s legalese for “Jamie and Andrew kept Britney off drugs so that she could continue making a whole lot of money.”

Andrew argues that he righted the ship of Britney’s career multiple times, including at the start of her Vegas residency, when she was apparently quite vulnerable:

“At the beginning of the conservatorship, the estate was nearly out of fund and cash equivalents,” Wallet said in the affidavit.

“The estate and person of the conservative were in total chaos with tremendous liabilities. The problems were of epic proportions over a period of years.

“Extraordinary skills have been employed by all in order to achieve the results enjoyed at the present time. Petitioner has had many months at a time where all of his professional time was spent in services rendered exclusively to the conservative.”

Again, it’s a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo, but there’s much to be learned here.

For example, like every recovering addict, Britney is never out of the woods and relies heavily on the support of those around her.

Also, being one of the supportive people around her is apparently quite a lucrative endeavor.


Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: CHEATER! CHEATER!

Tonight’s episode is an uncomfortable and super emotional one for me.

But when we signed up for this show over a decade ago, we signed up for a reality show, which meant showing you guys inside our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly.

To relive these moments all over again is incredibly difficult emotionally but I also hope that with every trail [sic], tribulation and curve ball life throws at us, that we ALL get to learn from our journeys.

So wrote Khloe Kardashian in the lead-up to a new episode of her family’s wildly popular E! program on Sunday night.

As viewers found out a short while later, this installment of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was a mega awkward and difficult one, as Khloe and her loved ones learned that Tristan Thompson had been cheating on her.

It’s an old story for all celebrity gossip followers at this point, but the wound was reopened and made fresh yesterday evening.

The episode opened innocently enough, too, with Khloe bouncing herself on a birthball ball and saying simply:

“Tristan is on the road… All I do is sit on this birthing ball.”

Sadly, however, Khloe had no idea at this time that Tristan was out and about, having random Instagram models sit on his face.

But the truth then came out.

Thanks to the Internet.

“There’s a last night. I know Khloé’s gonna die,” said Kim Kardashian, who just happened to be filming a testimonial when she received a text about it.

Added Kourtney, upon discovering the horrible truth herself:

“This is really shocking and obviously heartbreaking. The whole thing makes me disgusted.”

Kendall Jenner, meanwhile, referred to Thompson as an “idiot.”

As for who broke the life-altering news to Khloe?

Kylie Jenner explained why she took on this challenging job:

“No one had the courage to tell Khloe because she was days away from giving birth,” said the cosmetics guru, adding for fans to consider:

“I’m the one who told Khloe. … She should hear from one of us versus on the Internet.”

And that’s exactly what happened.

How did Khloe take it? Surprisingly well. Better than we would have, that’s for sure.

“Everyone wants me to make a decision right this second and I just want to go and give birth and try to enjoy this,” Khloe said, admitting that she still wanted Tristan in the delivery room and continuing:

“I don’t want anyone to talk about it and make him uncomfortable and make me uncomfortable.”

The reality star later admitted on Twitter Sunday night that she was “in shock” at the time, but she still handled herself like a boss.

And she did it for her daughter:

keeks writes on twitter

Khloe did kick Tristan out of their shared home after being told all he had done, however, and also did consider flying back to Los Angeles to give birth.

But she was too far along to do so. It would have been too dangerous.

So the episode concluded with Kim, Kourtney and Malika Haqq waiting for their private plane to Cleveland, hoping they would arrive before Khloe had the baby.

khloe on facetime

“It’s going to be hard to look at [Tristan] or be in the same room as him,” Kim said, revealing what she wanted to say upon first seeing the dishonsest baller:

“To be continued motherf–ker. It’s not over.”

Of course, it not being over also applies to the romance between Tristan and Khloe. 

They are basically going as strong as ever at this point.

Still, we always find ourselves asking and wondering: Can this really last?


Kris Jenner Fights to Stop Keeping Up With The Kardashians Cancelation

15 seasons isn’t enough for Kris Jenner. She wants 25 or more.

But she may be in for a rude awakening, because Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ ratings have been getting stomped.

Is the show that made her family a household name on its last leg? Or will it go on forever?

RadarOnline reports that Kris is prepared to fight for Keeping Up With The Kardashians to continue.

“Kris says all the time she wants the show to go on for ten more seasons,” an insider reports.

Can you imagine?

“And,” the source continues. “If she had her way she’d do the show until she dies.”

Bold of this insider to imply that Kris Jenner is capable of dying.

Kris is eternal.

Kris is reportedly looking to secure a new contract that guarantees multiple seasons.

In the mean time, however, it looks like her brood has grown too successful for the show that made them stars.

“Kim is already moving on to produce new projects of her own,” the insider notes.

Kim has her own products, her video game from a few years ago was massively lucrative.

She’s a model and a mogul.

“And,” the source says. “The rest of the girls have terrific footholds in modeling and merchandising.”

Kylie Jenner is poised to become a billionaire, but none of Kris’ daughters are hurting for cash.

And it doesn’t look like they care about KUWTK as much as they once did.

“Of the family,” the insider reports. “Only Kris is for keeping the show on the air the #1 priority.”

Well, all of her children except for Kendall are parents, now. Priorities change.

“And the network has already given up on their once lucrative business of creating spinoffs of the show,” the source adds.

Yeah. No more Kocktails with Khloe for us.

“Even Ryan Seacrest, who is still as involved as he can be, has other things he’s working on”

“and leaves Kim to her own devices in terms of keeping the show relevant”

We would joke that Ryan Seacrest is too busy dealing with the serious accusations of sexual assault from his former stylist.

The woman had multiple witnesses to her allegations.

But it doesn’t look like Seacrest is too bothered. Like too many others, his career seems unscathed by the horrible #MeToo story about him.

Unfortunately, Kris has felt discouraged by some of those closest to her.

“It doesn’t help that pretty much the only advice people give Kris about all this,” the insider begins.

The source continues: “Is that she — and the kids — should quit ‘KUWTK’ before they get fired!”

It’s understandable that friends would suggest something like this.

Better to cancel a show with dignity, they reason, than to end up getting canceled.

But the insider says: “That’s just not where her heart is at all!”

It’s true that Season 15’s ratings weren’t as good as Season 14’s, and were certainly worse than what KUWTK saw years ago.

But isn’t part of that just a result of people changing how they watch television?

The Kardashians still rake in a sizable share of the market — enough that Kris can probably talk her way into renewal for years to come.

Maybe her friends are right. Maybe she should quit with her head held high before, one day, E! makes that choice for her.

But we kind of hope that she doesn’t. We’d miss the show.

And so would a lot of people.


Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: A True Story

Keeping Up with the Kardashians finally answered one pressing question this week:

Where the heck did the name True come from?!?

We refer, of course, to the only daughter of Khloe Kardashian and that rotten dirty cheater, Tristan Thompson, who welcomed a child into the world this past April.

A child named True.

On Sunday evening, viewers tuned in to see Khloe (still ignorant to Tristan’s cheating ways) host a grand baby shower for her friends and loved ones.

The expectant parents asked their guests to write down name suggestions on a wall, with Kris Jenner’s mother, MJ, actually be the person we can all blame thank for coming up with this unusual moniker.

“Grandma, do you want to help pick a name?” Kim Kardashian asked her relative. “True, your grandfather?”

Your grandfather,” MJ corrected. “T-R-U-E.”

So there we have it apparently.

While the name was a major topic of conversation, so was Khloe’s pregnancy itself.

“Out of all my kids, I worried for a second about whether or not Khloe would have a baby,” Kris said at one point, adding through tears:

“It’s such an amazing blessing. We are beyond excited and thrilled to welcome my ninth grandchild, that’s a lot of people.”

Khloe was equally psyched, although she chose to fly out to a pretty boring city in Cleveland in order to be near Tristan when she gave birth.

Scott Disick actually met her there, full of jokes and insults.

“For the longest time, I’ve always wanted to go to Cleveland to see where Khloe lives,” Kourtney Kardashian’s ex quipped. “But I just didn’t know if there was anything to do there.”

The friends came up with a name for their podcast in Cleveland (The Lord and His Lady), but Disick ended up getting on Khloe’s nerves because she wanted to focus on the tiny human set to come out of her vagina…

… not on Scott’s antics.

“I love Scott and I love hanging out with him, but I really want to learn how to give a baby CPR,” Khloe complained to the camera. “He’s hamming it up for the podcast, probably more than usual, but it’s f-cking annoying right now.”

ELSEWHERE, Kylie Jenner recently had her baby and was coming to terms with new new body.

She felt really insecure after posing for a Calvin Klein photo shoot alongside her siblings.

My body’s not, you know, what it used to be,” the 21-year-old beauty mogul explained while baking with sister Kourtney.

“It is a shock to the system to see your body, especially at such a young age, change so drastically, just not be the same size.”

Later, sorting through clothing in her closet to see if anything fits, Kylie confided in Kim.

“We’re getting rid of everything. … Nothing in my closet fits me,” Jenner said. I feel like my hips, they just spread.”

Kim, of course, has been here before.

She’s given birth to two kids and irritated the Hell out of the Internet by talking about only her need to lose weight for many weeks afterward.

“I know it’s really early and Stormi’s so little, but you just have to roll with it,” Kim told her sister, adding:

“You just have to be confident, get some things that make you feel good about yourself and find your balance.”

To her credit, Kim ended the episode by heading to D.C. for the March for Our Lives really.

She talked to students there about the need for better gun control laws in America.

“Seeing these kids taking up their time to talk about issues that are so important, I think is just so selfless and so great of them,” Kardashian concluded.

“I honestly feel like there’s so many adults out there that can learn a thing or two from these kids.”

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Welcome… Alex Rodriguez?!?

As evidenced by the Kim Kardashian sex tape, at least one cast member on Keeping Up with the Kardashians knows a thing or two about how to handle a rod.

This was relevant on Sunday night because former Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, often referred to by the nickname “A. Rod,” made an unexpected cameo on the popular reality series.

Can’t say we saw that coming.

Also the boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez, Rodriguez was on hand to help the ladies with their baseball skills in anticipation of a charity game that was held to raise money for the Watts Community Center.

This is an interest in which Kris Jenner has often decided to devote her time and interest.

The big and very poorly-played game pitted the Kardashian family — including Kim, Kourtney, a then-pregnant Khloe, Kris and Kendall — against family pal Tito Jackson and his loved ones.

The Kardashians called themselves the Calabasas Peaches due to the movie A League of Their Own… and they were very much in a league of their own terriblenesss.

“The Jacksons have to go down,” Rodriguez said in an attempt to coach the women up, adding:

“Dear God, let us all play like New York Yankees.”

Kim at bat

(Editor’s Note: The Yankees just lost a playoff game by a score of 16-1 and a series to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox, so perhaps playing like the most recent version of the Bronx Bombers was not a great idea.)

Editor’s Note 2: A. Rod is a giant tool.)

In the end, the Jacksons thrashed the Kardashians, with Kim going down on strikes faster than she went down on Ray J in the aforementioned sex tape.

“We should just hand over the check now because we suck,” she later said.

Still, the game raised $ 15,000 for a charity that helps underprivileged kids.’

kourt with a glove

“I can’t wait to celebrate all the hard work that was put into the community center,’ said Kris as the family toured the kitchen, sports facilities and computer center at the facility.

Elsewhere, Scott Disick and Khloe Kardashian played a pretty dumb prank on Kris by pretending that a talented artist named Art Vandelay had made some paintings.

They then dropped these paintings off at Jenner’s house and watched as she wandered around her house, wondering where to hang them.

So much for her so-called expertise in the world of expensive art, right?!?

Disick and Kardashian were intent on embarrassing their snobby loved one, but soon realized they had maybe gone too far.

“We have to break it to her that we’re completely lying…and basically giving her fraudulent paintings,” Disick noted in a confessional.

evil scott

Over dinner at Nobu that evening, they allowed Kris to schmooze with the fake artist before they dropped the bombshell that she had been had.

“What? No!” Kris yelled upon learning that the paintings had been created by Khloe in her garage.

“You are pieces of sh-t…you had me this time!” Jenner boomed.

Finally, because the writers are truly out of storyline material, Kourtney ordered a DNA test.

“Oh my God I’m Middle Eastern and North African!’ said Kourtney, who was also “4.5 percent French.”

dna results

“I’m so white,” complained Kendall, while Khloe added:

“I’m 41.5 percent Middle Eastern.”

Fascinating, right?

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Kanye West Needs a Band-Aid

Kanye West needs many things in life.

Attention. Professional mental health assistance. A clue.

On Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, however, the controversial rapper just needed one thing from his wife: a band-aid.

And it led to a pretty big argument.

Kim Kardashian eats

“Last night I was just like not in the best mood and I was just like tired,” Kim told Khloe about this tiff early in the installment, explaining:

“I got home and I was like, ‘Hey’ and then I was like on my computer and then he was like, ‘Babe, will you get off your computer, I wanna talk, let’s hangout.'”

Kim was trying to meet a deadline and ignored Kanye, but she responded immediately when Saint reminded his mom that it was time for his bath.

Enter immature Kanye…

“I shut the computer and he’s like, ‘You’re gonna go take a bath with him, but I asked to hangout and you wouldn’t?'” Kim told Khloe of West’s response.

“Maybe just take a bath with Kanye and it will all be better,” Khloe quipped.

But Kim said the issue went beyond just polishing her man’s knob.

She expounded on a recent fight with Kanye, one that centered on him getting a boo-boo and his desire for his wife to fix it.

“We had a fight because I wouldn’t get him a Band-Aid,” Kim recounted, adding:

“I said, ‘Did you look in the proper place, there’s a Band-Aid here.’ He didn’t like that one. So he wanted another one, so there was a Band-Aid there and I put it on him. He didn’t like the color of the Band-Aid.”

What about one of daughter North Jesus-themed band-aids, which apparently exist?


“He was like, ‘I’ve slaved around the world making clothes for you to make sure that you find the best outfit and you let me go out wearing a Jesus Band-Aid,'” Kim said.

“I’m like, so I’m running around to find three f-cking different color Band-Aid’s when I have three kids to look after?!”


Hmm… is there something about a First World Problem we can label this as?

An Ultimate and Ridiculous and Nauseating First World Problem, perhaps?

Khloe simply told Kim that men often needed to be treated like the “first baby” and that, overall, Kanye is someone who requires attention and constant love.

Kim understood and bought some really sexy lingerie for Valentine’s Day. Problem solved!

Elsewhere, however, she continued to have problems with sibling Kourtney.

annoyed Kourtney

This time, they centered around Kim taking it upon herself to get involved in Kourtney and Scott Disick’s relationship after Disick supposedly texted Kim that he wanted another child.

Since both Scott and Kourtney were seeing other people at that time of this filming, Kim figured the two could just go the IVF route and have a fourth kid together without intercourse.

Easy peasy!

She emailed this brilliant idea to the rest of her loved ones… Kourtney included! By accident!

Kim then tried to bury the email and have it erased from Kourtney’s phone, but Kourtney caught on and was understandably furious.

“Honestly, I don’t even want to look at her after the whole email situation,” the mother of three confessed to her mom and Khloe.

“I don’t think she wants to hurt your feelings,” Kris responded, trying to play peacemaker. “I think she just communicates differently.”

Kourtney didn’t appreciate her mom “there are two sides to everything” approach and shot back:

“She did something really malicious, backstabbing and actually evil. Going behind someone’s back? It’s not okay, it’s not something I will accept in my life.”

Despite her anger at both Kris and Kim, Kourtney eventually settled down and spoke to Scott.

Disick revealed that Kim had twisted his words and vowed to Kourtney he “would not go and call up your family” to discuss this topic of children again.

From there,, Kourtney and Kim buried the tension enough to go away on a joint family skiing trip. Hooray!

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Rekap: Pregnancy is SO Easy!

Breaking news:

Kylie Jenner has given birth!

We repeat: Kylie Jenner has given birth!

What? You knew this already?

It happened way back in February, causing Sunday night’s brand new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to feel very dated and anti-climactic?


Nevertheless, the latest installment of this bizarrely popular E! reality series focused almost entirely on Kylie’s pregnancy and labor.

Early on, Kim joked with Kylie that her expecting state has been the best-kept secret of our generation,” despite literally every website on the Internet writing about it for weeks at the time.

“Your friends deserve awards,” Kim told her sibling, adding that she was never able to keep her pregnancies quiet and saying of Jenner’s close friends.

“Seriously, because now you know you have some real ones.”

Later, while working out with her personal trainer, Kim was stunned when Kourtney Kardashian walked in and delivered the news that Kylie was in labor. 

Kim noted that Kylie had asked Khloe to be in the delivery room, at Kim’s behest, while the family later gabbed once again about the secrecy of this birth (Kim: “Can you believe Kylie got out of the hospital with not one report? Now Caitlyn can never say we have big mouths and we leak everything.”) — along how amazing and how easy it all was.

“It was such a positive experience. …  She would go, ‘I’m not feeling any pain,’” Kris Jenner explained of her youngest child. “She was so calm.”

Oh, Kris also said she pulled Stormi out of Kylie’s vagina.

“Ewww,” Kim replied upon hearing this news.

“Kylie’s always wanted to be a mom so this is really exciting for her,” Kim told the camera, saying of why the young star didn’t make any official statement until after she gave birth:

“She just didn’t want anyone changing her happy moment and her happy pregnancy, so I’m really proud of her that she stuck to her guns and was able to tell her story her way.”

We believe her.

It definitely didn’t have anything to do with Kylie’s shock and shame over getting impregnated at age 20 by a guy she had only been dating a few months.

“I can already tell that Kylie is gonna be the most amazing mom and is so in love with her baby,” Kris added, as the relatives laid it on as thick as humanly possible.

Eventually, Kylie showed up for dinner, Stormi wrapped up tightly at her bosom while making her television debut.

“Now that it’s all said and done, what is your real take on pregnancy?” Kim asked her sister.

“I liked it. I miss it,” Kylie said ridiculously with a shrug. “I had like, the easiest pregnancy.”

What did she miss about it? What did she like about it?

“You never feel alone and like I was really sad to not be pregnant anymore,” Kylie expounded.

With Chicago Westin the picture on the show, all that remains is for Khloe to give birth and complete the trifecta.

“Khloe, I’m just so excited for you,” Kylie said. “I can’t wait.”

“Chicago was like the new girl in town for like a day,” Kim quipped.

“Stormi’s got three months, maybe as the new girl,” Kourtney said.

NOTE: We made some fun of Kylie and company here because the news is just so old and the glee with which she talked about labor was a tad bit nauseating and absurd.

But we really are happy for Jenner.

SECOND NOTE: The episode also included a memorial to the late family dog Gabbana.

And we’ll never make fun of anyone for mourning the loss of a pet.

Khloe, who had taken Gabbana into her home after Kris and Caitlyn’s divorce, eulogized the canine in a testimonial, saying:

“It’s so crazy to me that a dog can touch your life the way Gabbana’s touched my life. … I could always hear her in my home and now I hear silence.”

May she rest in peace.


Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: Hello, Chicago!

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.


Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: A Literal Family Feud

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.
