Kourtney Kardashian celebrated her birthday with a girls trip to Mexico on Sunday’s brand new “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Unfortunately, problems arose when Kim began having flashbacks to her Paris robbery, while Scott Disick felt jealous back home. Get the full episode recap below!
Early in the show, Kourtney told her mom Kris that she and 17 other girls, including Kim, were headed to Mexico for four nights to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately, Khloe wasn’t able to tag along because she was with boyfriend Tristan Thompson in Cleveland. Meanwhile, the momager decided to take Scott and his three kids camping since he was on daddy duty while Kourtney was away in Mexico.
Shortly after landing in Mexico, Kim began having a panic attack because she was still traumatized from her terrifying Paris robbery last year, and began fearing for her safety. While in tears, she called up her friend Joe Francis, the owner of the villa where the girls were staying, and said, “I just have anxiety. Are you sure it’s safe here?” “Yeah, Kim it’s safe there, I promise you.” Joe assured her. “I have my kids there. It’s safe.” Kim noted in a confessional, “Ever since Paris, I just like go through this worst case scenario mode in my head. I was so excited to come on this trip and I had no idea that I was gonna end up feeling this way.” The reality star then explained that she realized she and her friends are “the biggest targets ever” because they’re all flaunting expensive luggage and belongings. Still crying, she told Joe on the phone, “I’m just like, ‘Why did I come, you know?” He assured her the villa was perfectly safe, and Kim eventually calmed down and pulled herself together.
That night at Kourtney’s birthday dinner, the girls began drinking shots of tequila while Kim announced, “I think I have a hashtag for the trip: #MILFsGoneWild.” She add in a confessional, “I’ve been trying to not make this about me and get my anxiety together. It’s so much fun to see Kourtney like a MILF gone wild, and all her friends just dancing, drinking and having fun, and just letting loose without kids.” After blowing out the candles on a giant cake, Kourtney then began hitting a large pinata filled with sex toys while all the girls danced the night away.
The next day, Kim’s assistant Stephanie showed her paparazzi photos taken of them walking on the beach, and the reality star was taken aback by the unflattering images. “Oh my God!” she exclaimed. “Like, I don’t get it! Like, I literally don’t look like this!” She later explained in a confessional, “I’m already having this anxiety attack over security, and I’m already just on high alert and now paparazzi’s found us. Just the scrutiny that we get all the time, we’re trying to avoid that.” She added, “I’m doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible and then you take pictures, and if they’re not perfect, people just body shame and criticize you. For people just to think that’s OK is so frustrating.”
Kim eventually stormed back into the house, telling her friends, “I need to untag myself in everything. I’m literally going to go back inside and just start untagging.” Later, most of the girls went jet skiing, but Kim was too upset to join them. Instead, the reality star sulked in the villa while complaining about the paparazzi photos of her. “This is so frustrating,” she said. “I just came to chill out and not worry about anything. This has been the worst trip for me.”
Back in Los Angeles, Kris, Scott and the kids set up tents in her backyard for their at-home camping experience. Scott was disappointed that Kris had bought expensive sleeping bags and hired chefs to cook them food because he was hoping to “rough it,” but Kris insisted that sleeping in the backyard was “rough” enough for her. Kris then received a phone call from Kourtney, who went on about how great a time she was having in Mexico. “I threw up last night four times in my bed and slept in it because I could not get up!” Kourtney laughed, while Kris screamed, “That’s gross.” An annoyed Scott overheard the entire conversation, and added, “How is it that she’s allowed to throw up in bed and I have to go to rehab if I do something like that?” He added in a confessional, “The last thing I want to do is really hear exactly what Kourt’s doing on this Mexican getaway. I get a little jealous because I wish we could have had some of those types of times when we were together.”
When Kim returned home, she told her friend Jonathan Cheban that she felt insecure following the paparazzi photos that emerged from the trip. “It can really hurt your soul if you hear enough bad things about you, even if you know you don’t look like that,” she said. “The last thing I want to have is a complex.” “I think you should forget about it,” Jonathan told her. “Everybody loves you. You look amazing. Just pick your head back up.” Kim then said she was considering skipping the upcoming Met Gala because she didn’t feel attractive, but her friend insisted she looked great and should attend the event.
After returning home, Kourtney caught up with her mom Kris, who asked how the vacation went. “It was the best four days of my life,” Kourtney responded. Her mom, however, told her it was a bad idea to announce on social media that she threw up “and then went to sleep in it.” “Why? It’s so funny,” Kourtney told her mom, who failed to see the humor in the situation. Kourtney then asked, “How was Scott?” “I think he was jealous because you were having fun spending time with other people,” Kris noted. “Well that’s really not fair,” said Kourtney. “I can’t even go anywhere. He needs to get a fu**ing life and leave me alone.” She added, “All he does is try to make everybody else feel bad for him and try to make me look like the bad guy in this situation, when clearly I’m not.”
Kris then asked, “Wouldn’t you be sad if he truly left you alone? You always want what you can’t have.” The momager felt Scott was offering her his “heart on a platter,” but Kourtney shot back, “He’s not! That’s what he makes it seem! To you, to Kim, to Khloe, to the world, to everybody! He sits there and grovels and feels bad for himself… Why can’t he get it together?” She continued, “I have to handle it when he’s out photographed with a different hooker every day. He’s clearly doing his own thing.” Kourtney then noted that she heard from friends that Scott was hooking up with multiple girls, adding, “He tricks all of you guys.” Kris said, “I think you guys should agree to have a different relationship and both of you move on.” Kourtney responded, “He’s showing that he’s never going to change. Why can’t he get his life together?”
