Over the past few weeks, we saw the Kardashians return for another fun-filled season, which started off with a blast. There was the revelation of Rob
's new girlfriend, the Khloe
dating issue, the matchmaking, Kendall
's money issue and the more recent attempt of Rob to break into the modeling industry, thanks to Kim
. On the last episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians
, however, the crazy antics took the back seat as a couple of serious stuff took place.
First, there was Rob's serious attempt of dropping out of college to pursue a modeling career. There was also a serious crime committed right there in the Kardashian store, Dash. How could the Kardashian women deal with all these things all at the same time? By empowering themselves, of course!
"I know my brother, he's a rational, good kid and this just does not sound like something he would do," Kourtney
said about Rob's sudden decision to turn his back on his education. When it came to issues such as these, big sister Kourtney acts much like her sister Khloe, who often takes the role of the voice of reason in the house.
"People work to put themselves through college," Kourtney told Rob in an attempt to prevent him from pursuing a modeling career. "College is an opportunity that you've been given...This should be your priority. Going to college is important."
Kourtney expressed her great disappointment with Rob's intentions and reminded him that their father, the late Robert Kardashian, would not have wanted him to compromise his education for a modeling career. Finally, Rob came to his senses after talking to Kourtney and Adrienne Bailon, his girlfriend.
"You are so close to graduating!" Adrienne said. "Have you really thought about this?"
Rob did a lot of thinking and finally came to a good decision to stay in school, because he knew his late father would have been very disappointed if he pursued a modeling career instead of his education.
"I almost dropped out of school," Rob confirmed. "My dad's dream for me was to go to USC, graduate from USC. If I modeled, all that would've been just thrown away."
Meanwhile, the elder Kardashian sisters encountered some trouble at Dash after an intruder harassed their attendant and vandalized the store. The sisters called the police and reported the crime, and they eventually realized that one can never tell when a crime could be committed to someone close to him or her. So the girls decided that they should learn how to defend themselves, in case the need arises.
took Kim, Kourtney and Khloe to the LAX Shooting Range to get some hands on training on gun firing. Later, they also took some time to learn some physical combat moves.
"I've never done this before and I'm really nervous," Kim said. Khloe, on the other hand, seemed to enjoy the rush of handling such a dangerous weapon in her hands.
"It's just this rush of adrenaline, it's not fun, it's scary," Khloe said. "It's just like almost anxiousness."
It looked like Khloe wasn't the only one having fun, as mommy Kris enjoyed watching the girls rock some real guns.
"The visual of my fashion-forward girls at the shooting range was comical," Kris said. "Very Charlie's Angels."
