On Sunday, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” returned for the show’s 16th season on E!.

Here’s what you might have missed on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”:
Kim and Kanye announced they were expecting another baby boy
The season started off with a bang, because the very first scene of the show included Kim and Kanye sharing some very important news with their family.
“We have an announcement to make: We’re having a baby,” Kim said when everyone gathered to share a meal. “We’re having a boy.”
Then, she and Kanye were off to Chicago with North, where they wanted to show her the house he grew up in. But since it was technically owned by Donda’s House, the organisation that Kanye turned over to rapper Rhymefest and after the public beef he and Rhymefest had, he was worried he might not let them in to see the house.
Eventually, Kanye decided he wanted to hash things out even though Kim wasn’t feeling the same way. She later vented to Kris, saying that she was getting frustrated with Kanye’s feuds.
“I can’t, like, babysit him and figure out who’s f—– him over today and who he’s gonna forgive.” She added, “It is so frustrating to me to see him not, like, care and see people walk all over him.”
But in the end, she and Kanye did get to show North his childhood home.
“It’s so special that North gets to see that life that Kanye lived that really made him who he is. That was really cool to see,” Kim said.
When they got home, Kanye invited Rhymefest over to talk to hash our their feud. According to Rhymefest, many people back in Chicago felt Kanye had turned their back on them and admitted there was also some miscommunication and apologised for bringing things up publicly. He also brought Kim a peace offering: A crystal meant to bring her good vibes. Kanye also acknowledged his part, saying that he was going through a tough time.
“It’s good that we all had a calm, understanding conversation,” Kim said. “I just think that everyone should communicate to each other and not on social media and I think you just get so much more done if you have a conversation.”
Kourtney discussed her breakup with Younes Bendjima
Now that Kourtney has officially split from Younes Bendjima, she shared that she’s suffering from a lot of anxiety.
So to make her feel better, Khloe decided to plan a fun weekend in Palm Springs to check out Kris Jenner’s new pad, where she could have fun and let loose.
But even though she was supposed to be having a good time and hanging out with her friends, Kourtney spent most of her time on the trip talking about the split, which Khloe didn’t like. At that point, Khloe whipped out the karaoke machine to pull Kourtney out of her funk.
“I’m feeling much better and you know as scary as this might be, I’m really ready,” Kourtney said. “This is the first time I’ve really been single in a long time so I’m just going to embrace it and really enjoy the time to myself and be focusing on my kids and myself. I’m excited for the future.”
Khloe gave some details about her life with True – and Tristan
Though it’s obvious this was filmed far in advance, it was interesting to see Khloe give a brief update about her life with daughter True and partner Tristan Thompson, especially following the cheating scandal involving Jordyn Woods.
In her talking head, Khloe said that she is loving being a mum and also that she and Tristan are doing “great.” The latter statement may be a surprise to some fans give the recent news and even the trailer for the upcoming season, which sees Khloe discussing trust and saying that Tristan doesn’t respect her.
MJ and Scott spent time together
Now that MJ is settled into Calabasas, she shared that she’s starting to feel a little left out because the family is pretty busy, and she said when Kris does come over, she ends up taking calls. So Scott took it upon himself to hang out with MJ instead.
While having tea with MJ, Scott shared that one of his favourite memories with his late father was eating the scrambled eggs he’d make for him, so he invited MJ over to teach him how to make them. Then, when Kris seemed a little jealous of their one-on-one time, they invited her to join them on their next tea date.
“I don’t think that Kris is going to be able to sit through a whole tea without using her phone,” Scott admitted.
They all put their phones in a pile when they arrived at tea, and Kris did manage to give MJ and Scott her full attention.
“I didn’t realise that MJ feels like I don’t pay attention to her,” Kris said. “It makes me really really sad that she thinks I don’t give her enough attention. I have to try harder.”
