The Kardashian-Jenners are always trying to convince the public that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are on the verge of breaking up. Even though the couple just had their second child over the summer, the tabloids are always full of stories about how Kourtney is fed up with Scott’s partying, drinking, lack of steady job/income and general irresponsibility and is ready to kick him to the curb. And now, just in time (what a coincidence!) for the upcoming season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, the Kardashian-Jenners are at it again.
According to HollywoodLife.com, momager Kris Jenner is encouraging Kourtney and Scott “to ‘play up’ the drama in their not-so-perfect relationship for the cameras” because she sees it as “an opportunity to bring in huge ratings.” Can you say publicity stunt?
“Things couldn’t be worse for Kourtney and Scott right now. They are non-stop fighting and at each other’s throats, but Kris doesn’t seem to care. She says, ‘Save your drama for the cameras!’ Kris has even gone so far as to tell them to ‘play up the chaos in their relationship.’ Kris also thinks it’s a good idea that Kourtney and Scott live in separate homes because it will add more complexity to the storyline, which will also include Kim Kardashian’s blooming love affair with Kanye West,” a “friend of the Kardashian family” (aka Kris) tells the website, sounding not at all like a press release.
So that’s what this is, a “storyline.” The Kardashian-Jenners are famous for inventing storylines and faking scenes for their “reality” shows. And since Kris reportedly tried to cause problems for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom to drum up ratings, why should the public think Kourtney and Scott’s relationship drama is any different? They probably have their issues like all couples do, but they’re not married, so Kourtney could call things off at any time if she’s really that unhappy. But they’re still together and insisting they’re fine; even Kim just said that the two are “better than ever.” So either they’re lying, which the Kardashian-Jenners have been known to do, or Kourtney really needs to grow a spine and just leave already. This “OMG she’s going to dump him” “storyline” has been dragging on for years now.
What do you think? Are Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick headed for a breakup? Is this just another storyline for the Kardashians’ “reality” shows? Sound off in the comments!
