‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ Review: The Dominican Republic, Part 1
Tension was running high from all the Kardashians and Jenners on the latest episode of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians.’ As the clan geared up for their annual family vacation, hormonal and uber-pregnant Kourtney Kardashian had a change of heart numerous times about where to travel and the logistics of it all with how far along she was with baby No. 2.
Once the family — and Kourtney — decide on a location of the Dominican Republic, all seemed to be in order. That is until it was time to head to the airport. Kourt decided minutes before the flight that she was too tired to make the long trek in a plane and would rather settle for a good night’s sleep in her own bed. Her difficulty caused Kim Kardashian to miss her flight, but she finagled another plane ride down the following morning.
Meanwhile down in the Dominican Republic, the Kardashian-Jenner family was given the surprise of a lifetime when Khloe Kardashian-Odem, who said she was unable to make the vacation this year, showed up a day prior to everyone’s arrival. Tears were shed and the fun was getting underway.
Things quickly turned sour when Khloe, Kendall and Kylie’s rough-housing went bad when they created a tribe and decided to sacrifice their mother. After pulling Kris Jenner down a flight of stairs in the villa then into the pool, she landed a broken toe, which didn’t put the vacation off to a good start.
By the time the Kourtney, Scott and Mason arrive to the Dominican Republic, not even Khloe’s presence could bring a good enough energy to overlook the sour moods everyone was in. Scott and Bruce had a butting of heads prior to the trip when the father of 10 introduced Kourtney’s baby daddy as his “friend,” which hurt Scott’s feelings.
During the episode’s final scene, the entire family was attempting to enjoy a nice dinner, but when Bruce nit-picks Scott’s parenting and Kris insults Kourtney for her indecisiveness in all areas of her life — including her love life with Scott — the claws came out. Kourtney lashed out at her mother, saying she was the last person to take any kind of relationship advice from, seeing how Kris was going behind Bruce’s back to meet up with an old flame. A stunned Kris found herself at a loss for words, especially since the meeting with her former boyfriend from the episode that aired last week never actually happened. But nobody gives Kris the chance to speak, and the family scatters, leaving mom all alone at the dinner table.
Next week during Part 2, all the drama will come to a head. Stay tuned for your full recap of all the dirt and much more!
