Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” included a lot of busy moments for the family. Kris Jenner was cast in Ariana Grande’s “Thank U Next” video, and Rob Kardashian’s daughter, Dream, celebrated her second birthday. Meanwhile, everyone forced to evacuate their homes as the California wildfires spread to their area.
Here’s what you might have missed on “KUWTK”:
Khloe sang Jordyn Woods’ praises at the launch of her collab with Kylie
At the beginning of the episode, which was filmed before Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, Kylie and Jordyn threw a launch party for their lip kit collaboration, and Khloe gave a toast that included her talking about how proud she was of Jordyn.
“I’m so proud of both Kylie and Jordyn,” Khloe said. “Jordyn, for you to be turning 21, I’ve known you forever and I’m so proud of you and the woman that you have grown into and are growing into, and to see you guys stick together and be best friends through thick and thin is such a blessing.”
Kim Kardashian continued working toward prison reform
As Kim continued her law school journey, she also worked on helping to get the First Step Act passed to help with the effort toward prison reform. The attorneys she worked with told her that President Donald Trump’s cooperation was absolutely necessary to get the act passed, which meant that she’d need to get him on board.
In the meantime, Kim was expecting a visit from Alice Johnson, a former prisoner who she helped get clemency. Kim and Alice were due to speak at a prison reform summit together, and Alice’s family wanted to cook a meal for Kim and her family. Alice and her family met Kim at Kendall’s house since she was the only one who didn’t have to evacuate.
Alice and her family made dinner for Kim and her family, and they talked about what life had been like for Alice since she left prison.
“It’s really good to spend time with Alice and her family and just hear from her about what it’s like to really have her life back and really be adjusting so well,” Kim said. “There’s so many people in Alice’s situation who really do deserve a second chance and that’s one of the reasons I’m fighting for this First Step Act. Alice is really thankful for everything she is able to do and that just makes me happy.”
As Kim waited to speak at her conference, they found out that Trump had endorsed the First Step Act right before she went on stage. The US House and Senate have since voted to pass the act.
Kardashian acknowledged that some people have criticised her for meeting with Trump but that to her, she would work with anyone because people who are incarcerated “don’t care who signs that clemency paper.”
“I did consider the fact that I would get a lot of backlash if I went to the White House,” she said “People talk s— about me all day long. I didn’t really care.”
“When I outweighed the options of bad stories about me that would probably last a week in this news cycle, versus saving someone’s life, that wasn’t an option. I will gladly go there and take the heat.”
Kris Jenner filmed the “Thank U Next” music video with Ariana Grande
After Kris got a call from Ariana Grande’s team asking her to play themum from “Mean Girls” in the “Thank U, Next” music video, she couldn’t say yes fast enough. When Kris arrived on set, Ariana was so excited to see her – especially since she came bearing some Kylie lip kits for her.
“This is the first time that I’ve ever been in a professional music video with an iconic artist and someone I admire very much,” Kris said. “I don’t want to let Ariana down.”
By the end of the shoot, Kris said she was having the best time, and that Ariana “couldn’t be more supportive” of her while she was on set.
The California wildfires rolled in, threatening the Kardashian family’s homes
As the California wildfires began to threaten the area where the family lives, Khloe and Kourtney found out that there was a voluntary evacuation in effect, and they began packing things up in case they’d have to leave.
It didn’t take long before their area was under a mandatory evacuation, and Rob initially didn’t want to leave because he had activities planned for Dream’s birthday. Eventually, everyone was able to get out safely, and as Khloe and Kourtney settled into their hotel, they watched the homes near theirs go up in flames on the news.
Later, when Kim arrived, they decided to stop talking about the fires so much in front of the kids so they wouldn’t be scared, and they spent the night jumping on the bed and trying to distract themselves from what was happening outside.
Finally, the family was able to return to their homes, and Khloe was relieved to see that her house was untouched, although the fire came up to her backyard.
“I am so relieved that my house is fine – there’s smoke damage, but it’s nothing compared to so many other people’s homes that have been completely destroyed,” Khloe said. “It breaks my soul to think about someone having to completely rebuild and lose every single tangible memory, but we have our health and our family and that is what matters at the end of the day.”
