Kim Kardashian accused Kourtney of “yelling” at and “degrading” Kim’s nanny while the familly was on vacation in Idaho.
Based on Kourtney’s recollection of the incident, as shown on Thursday’s episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” the oldest Kardashian sister appeared to have had an argument with Kim’s nanny over how to discipline Reign, Kourtney’s youngest child.
Kourtney said that, according to Reign, the nanny (who the show kept anonymous) had told him he “would go to jail if” the six-year-old boy “talked in the car.” Kourtney confronted the nanny over this.
“She was crying and she thought she was going to lose her job,” Kim told Kourtney of her nanny’s reaction. “She said she felt so degraded by you and you just started yelling at her.”
“She’s lying,” Kourtney replied, denying she’d yelled at Kim’s nanny for her comments to Reign.
The sisters continued to disagree over the specifics of the Idaho incident, with Kim explaining that her nanny was upset that Kourtney had confronted her in a restaurant instead of in private.
Kourtney, in turn, said that she didn’t have the conversation with the nanny in private because Reign is “big on [Kourtney] confronting people in front of him.”
“He wants to know that I have his back in front of him,” Kourtney explained to Kim and Khloé (who was also present during the conversation but didn’t participate much).
Kim, however, disagreed with that approach and insisted that the conversation between the adults “should have been in private” before remarking that Kourtney “can’t even keep a nanny.”
In a confessional following the argument, Kourtney called Kim’s comments “hurtful” and said they were “random lies.”
However, the sisters appeared to put aside their disagreement a few days later, with Kim visiting Kourtney’s house to apologize and Kourtney accepting the apology while also reflecting on why the two fight so often.
“It’s just not a good way to be,” Kourtney told Kim about both of their tones during the fight.
In recent years, Kourtney and Kim have shared a tense relationship on ‘KUWTK’
While Kim and Kourtney appeared to reach a positive conclusion to the argument on Thursday’s “KUWTK” episode, the two have been no strangers to fighting on-camera during the E! show’s 14-year run.
In 2018, Kim famously called Kourtney “the least exciting to look at” in an episode after the sisters couldn’t agree on a time to shoot the family’s annual Christmas card.
“I need Kourtney to not be so f–king annoying with a stick up her a– like she runs this s— because she doesn’t,” Kim was filmed telling Kris Jenner about her older sister. “She is the least exciting to look at, so she can be out.”
Two years later, Kim and Kourtney had a physical fight that made it to air over Kourtney’s work ethic, before Kourtney announced in July that she was taking a break from filming the long-running reality show. “KUWTK” is coming to an end this year after 20 seasons.
The family also had a heated conversation over parenting styles in 2019 when Kourtney shared that her daughter, Penelope, had “scratched” her nanny’s face.
Reacting to Kourtney’s story, Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble suggested “whooping” Penelope if she ever did that to him. That comment led to a massive fight between Gamble and Scott Disick, who is Penelope’s dad and Kourtney’s former partner.
But as Kim put it on Thursday’s episode, in the Kardashian-Jenner family, “fights are our thing.”
