Keeping Up with the Kardashians Recap: A Thing of Beauty

This week on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 14 Episode 7, it was a time for new beginnings … and some old issues.

Khloe brought home her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, for the summer, while Kourtney tried to set some boundaries with Scott.

You can imagine how that went over.

If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know that Khloe and the Cleveland Cavaliers forward are getting serious.

“Tristan has always gone out of his way to make me feel at home,” she said. “And in Cleveland he’s gone above and beyond.”

“In L.A. I want to do the same for him.”

While she was stressed about whether to live at her house with him or get a place closer to UCLA, she decided she was overthinking it.

“After talking with Tristan we have come to the conclusion that I’m crazy,” she recounted. “I don’t know why I was stressing myself out.”

“We have our beautiful home in Calabasas. All Tristan really wants is to be with me and for us to enjoy our summer together.”

“That’s really all that matters.”

Proving what a sweet guy he is to have around, Thompson surprised Kardashian with a birthday party with her family and friends in L.A.

“I’ve never had a surprise party ever,” Khloé said. “We were at dinner and Tristan was so calm. He was as cool as a cucumber.”

“He’s good at surprise parties. I had no clue.”

She gushed, “Tristan is just incredible. I’ve never been this happy. I am so lucky to be with someone that is so thoughtful and so sweet.” 

Not so happy with the situation? Lord D.

“I didn’t even get invited to her birthday,” he complained to Kim and his ex, Kourtney, using the flawed argument, “I’m family!”

Knowing Kourtney was the reason he didn’t make the guest list, she tried to explain it away, but only made the situation worse.

“I didn’t want you to coming to the birthday and be photographed going in,” Kourtney said, with Scott not buying it for a second.

“Photographed going in is your concern?” Disick said. “My concern would be … to be there for your sister who I love and care about.

“For the past 10-12 years,” he went on, “[he’s] been there for through thick and thin and marriages and all these different things.”

Kourtney later came clean to Khloe about this.

“I’m a little bit caught off guard. I just said that I didn’t want to be photographed even though that’s really not what I meant,” she admitted.

“I just try to be positive. And I didn’t want to say I just didn’t want you there. So if I can’t say anything nice, I just won’t say anything at all.”

Then Kourtney opened up to him, as well …

“There’s times when I want you to come and there’s times that I don’t,” she told Disick, and he did understand, at least to a point.

“Obviously I’m not able to handle everything that well,” he said. “I don’t have the best support team. I can try to f–king be a better person.”

“It’s [just] not the simplest thing.”

Hilariously, he then joked, “When do you think were gonna get married by the way, like 40?” Kourtney then responded in kind:

“You think when I turn 40 I’m gonna go, hey I’ve been looking for this drunk guy and he has a bunch of dirty s–t stained underwear?”

He walked into that one.

Kim, meanwhile, was stressing about the launch of her KKW Beauty line, which was inspired and aided by her one and only. 

“Kanye saw the plans and it was so helpful his input,” Kim said. “He called the florist and we made that whole flower rose room last minute.”

“That was honestly like the biggest attraction,” she said. 

“It’s so exciting to do something on my own. Basically for the past almost decade my sisters and I have always had a licensing deal.” 

“Going from being a licensee to an owner is so much more responsibility. I feel like this has been what I’ve been working for for 10 years.”

Kim was uneasy about taking on such a high-profile role, as she was still easing back into the spotlight after her October 2016 robbery.

“I’ve been like slowly taking my time to come back and this is a serious, sit-down, major interview,” Kim said of interviewing the CEO.

“This isn’t … I don’t know how something like this could go. If they want to ask me crazy questions, it’s Steve Forbes,” she said.

“It’s hard for me to get back out there.”

In the end – following the re-release of new promotional images (fans thought she was wearing blackface in the originals) – it was a hit.

Kim was happy with how the launch party turned out, and the family mogul proved she isn’t ready to cede that title to Kylie just yet.

“There’s such amazing press on this launch party,” she gushes. “And I’m so happy we made so many changes so it would be perfect.”

Get it, girl.


Jessica Simpson Schoolgirl Pic Dubbed Creepiest Thing Online

Jessica Simpson's latest Instagram post is receiving a lot of backlash, which is nothing new for her, but … well, you gotta see the photo.

The one-time alleged singer/actress turned fashion entrepreneur and mother of two is no stranger to catching heat for her shared images.

This one is just different, though.

See the image in question below, along with some of the reactions it got on Instagram, and see which side you come out on …

1. Jessica Simpson Schoolgirl Photo

Jessica simpson schoolgirl photo
Jess channeled her “inner school girl” in a pic for her fall clothing collection and the Internet is sufficiently freaked out for a number of reasons.

2. Not For Adults

Not for adults
A lot of people shared this view, though we would argue that any handle like @hansonfreak isn’t appropriate for adults either. Just saying.

3. Maybe if You Were 2 LOL

Maybe if you were 2 lol
In her defense, some of Jessica Simpson’s best quotes sound like a two-year-old could’ve said them.

4. No, No, No

No no no
We don’t understand what the first part of this comment even means, but clearly they weren’t a fan.

5. Or Your … What?

Or your what
What kind of hooker does this person frequent?!

6. Get Creeped Out

Get creeped out
That might be a stretch, given how much of the Internet is currently devoted to Farrah Abraham-related content. But we admit, the photo is kind of a head-turner.

Pussycat Dolls Founder Responds to That Whole “Prostitution” Thing

Now that Kaya Jones is done talking, Robin Antin would like to take the floor.

And set the record straight.

Late last week, Jones went off on a Twitter rant that railed against her time as a member of The Pussycat Dolls.

The artist used harsh language to describe an allegedly horrible situation, comparing the group to a “prostitution ring” and saying she was forced to “sleep with whoever they say.”

She said members of the band were “abused,” sometimes “hooked on drugs” and she compared her experience as a Pussycat Doll to “war.”

Turning her attention to Simone Battle, a singer in spin-off group G.R.L. who committed suicide three years ago, Jones wrote:

“I want the den mother from hell to confess why another 1 of her girl group girls committed suicide? Tell the public how you mentally broke us.”

Without stating her name, this was clearly a reference to Robin Antin, the choreographer who started The Pussycat Dolls.

And now Antin has fired back.

On Monday morning, Antin talked to The Blast and called the allegations, “disgusting, ridiculous lies.”

She addedthat that Jones, who was in the group from 2003-2005, is “clearly looking for her 15 minutes [of fame].”

As for why her name may not sound familiar to music fans? Antin said Jones was only ever a “trial” member. She was never an official Pussycat Doll.

This could also explain the response of Asia Nitollano.

That artist, who sang with The Pussycat Dolls in 2007, scoffed at Kaya’s remarks over the weekend as follows:

“Who is Kaya Jones? Lol She was not apart of The Pussycat Dolls the recording group so I do not know her…

“But judging from google she looks like she just wants her 15min of fame. (Side note… it says she’s a Trump supporter… but yet she’s Canadian, which means her vote doesn’t count!!!!

“Same with this comment about The Pussycat Dolls; she wasn’t in the group so her opinion doesn’t count!!!!”

What about Battle‘s suicide?

Antin told The Blast that bringing up this topic was “unfathomable and disrespectful to everyone who works towards suicide prevention and awareness,” writes the website.

And Antin says adds that mentioning a suicide in such a brazen way not only affects the family, but the millions of people that loved and cared for Simone.

She has a pretty strong point there, doesn’t she?

If Jones is going to claim Battle killed herself due to her experience in her singing group and all that included… well… she better have some pretty hard evidence to back up such an assertion.
