Things got nasty between Kim and Kourtney got into a real physical fight in front of the cameras.
It was ugly and uncomfortable and such a departure from the kind of content the show has been presenting all these years, that Kim told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that they actually shut production down for a week afterward.
She said that mom Kris Jenner cried when she first saw the clip. “She was like, who are you guys? What is going on?” Kim told Jimmy.
According to the reality star, this was a culmination of Kourtney’s growing frustration with being part of the show, and a facet of her not simply telling her family this is what she was feeling.
“She’s not the type of person to make a decision and say, ‘Okay guys, I’m not gonna film.’ But she would come to work with an attitude every day, kind of take it out on everyone from the crew to us and wouldn’t really make that decision,” Kim Told Fallon “So we would kind of just keep on pushing her to figure out why she was so unhappy.”
She also revealed that things took a nasty turn when Kourtney finally did explode, and it was even worse than what was shown on the show. “I don’t really ever resort to violence like that but she scratched me so hard, which you guys didn’t see,” Kim said. “When I looked down at my arm and saw that she had really scratched me and I felt it all on my back, I just went over and slapped her back.
What followed was a nasty-looking fight that Kim admitted was not her “proudest moment,” but it was their reality at the moment and thus it made it to air.
As for Kourtey? Confirming what has been hinted around and suggested for awhile now, Kim said, “She’s made the decision to take time off now, and I think she really needs it. I think that will be so much better for her.”
Kim even went so far as to ask her followers on Instagram for advice on activities and things to do to keep her kids happy, but when Jimmy asked if she got any good tips, Kim had to say no.
“Everyone was like you have everything at your house, they shouldn’t be bored.”
