During the second episode of season 16 of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the family tried to organise their trip to Bali and Kim Kardashian found out that Kanye West told fans he was moving back to Chicago without discussing it with her first.
Here’s what you might have missed on “KUWTK”:
Scott wanted to join the family trip to Bali
Some of the family was getting ready to take a big trip to Bali, and there was a debate about whether or not Scott should be invited. Kourtney had her hesitations; on the last family trip, he snuck a woman along with him, much to everyone else’s surprise, and this time, she was hoping for a “drama-free vacation.”
But Kim and Kris thought that Scott should definitely be invited, and Kim decided to try to help convince Kourtney it was a good idea. She planned to invite Scott to join her and Kourtney on a trip to New York to see Kanye perform on “Saturday Night Live,” and if that trip went well, maybe Kourtney would want to bring him to Bali, too.
The trip to New York did end up going well, but Kourtney was worried that Scott might not be able to maintain co-parenting boundaries if he came to Bali. But when the two of them had a chance to talk one-on-one about the situation, she felt a little better about it.
“My past with Scott has always been complicated, and I just feel like this New York trip has really made me feel excited,” she said. “It’s really nice to see how much Scott has grown and how much he’s invested in really being a great dad to the kids.”
Ultimately, Kourtney decided that it was ok with her if Scott came to Bali, and he was happy that he wouldn’t miss out on that time with his kids.
MJ had a health scare
Kris’ mum, MJ, said she hadn’t been feeling well, and although she’d been suffering from pneumonia, doctors found a mass they hadn’t been able to identify, which had Kris worried. She said until the results of her biopsy were in, she couldn’t imagine going on vacation.
Ultimately, Kris decided to skip out on the trip so she could be around in case MJ needed her, even though she said she was having FOMO about not going to Bali with the rest of her family.
“The results of MJ’s biopsy are saying it’s a terrible intense infection, which is still very serious,” Kris said. “I could never leave her now.”
Kim found out Kanye wanted to move to Chicago via social media like everyone else
While Kim was working on a photo shoot, she started getting text messages from friends, asking her if she was moving to Chicago. That’s when she found out about Kanye saying he was moving back to Chicago while talking to a crowd at an event – and yes, she was hearing about this for the first time as the rest of the world, and she was not on board.
“I know Kanye really loves being in Chicago but I had no idea that he wants to move there until I hear about it on social media,” Kim said. “I’m a little bit annoyed. We have to talk about this. I have to get there in person and see face to face what’s really going on.”
When Kim made it to Chicago, she found out that when Kanye said they could move into his mum’s house, he meant it seriously, not that they could just stay for a few weeks, and for the time being, Kim decided to “ride it out” and see where the idea went. But the rest of her family seemed against it, including Khloe, who was living in Cleveland part time at the time and knew what it was like to uproot her life and be away from her family.
But then, at Kanye’s SNL performance, he ranted about President Donald Trump, which had Kim even more stressed out.
“I don’t know if they will invite us back ever,” Kim said. “I can’t control it.”
Kris told her that she should try to pay more attention to Kanye to keep him calm, but Kim said that she has “a million kids and a million jobs” and doesn’t have much more to give.
When Kim talked to Kanye later, she told him that since the kids are in school, she didn’t want to make them leave their routine and their cousins and asked him if having a second house in Chicago would be an option rather than permanently moving to Chicago.
“When I went to Chicago I felt like I was home. There were a lot of things that I missed, just not being there for a long, long time,” Kanye said.
Kim said she was willing to split her time, but during the school year, she wanted to remain in California with her kids. And in the end, they agreed that they wouldn’t move full time, but they would spend more time in Chicago so Kanye could feel at home more often.
