Time to lay your Kards on the table, because it’s yet another episode of the recently renewed for a second season Keeping Up with the Kardashians. We get a quick recap of Kourtney Kardashian’s budding relationship with Scott. At the start of tonight’s episode, Kourtney is feeling nauseous. Sister Khloe Kardashian is thinking Kourtney is preggers. They get a bunch of tests and we see the two girls waiting in the bathroom to get the result.
There are one and a half lines, and Khloe thinks her sister is pregnant. Scott is called over. Khloe and Kourtney try to explain it to him, and Scott’s eyes start bugging out. He just wishes he was told by himself, off-camera. He stands by her, and she makes an appointment with a gynecologist.
Kourtney, like the rest of us, doesn’t feel she’s ready to be a mother. At times like this, I think of Paris Hilton. Terrible as she is, at least she hasn’t brought a child into this world like Nicole Richie or Britney Spears. Kourtney gets the good news (not pregnant), and Scott’s reaction says it all: “Thank God!” She calls up Khloe, whose reaction is to go to Las Vegas and party. Matriarch Kris Kardashian decides to tag along, though she’s not sure what the reason for the celebration is.
They all pack up and take a party bus to Vegas. Almost immediately, Kris has to pee, but there’s no bathroom on the bus. They pull over, and Kris goes to pee in some empty parking lot. You can always count on the Kardashians to bring the classiness. They get to Vegas, and after checking into their hotel suite, they go out to “make it rain.” Kourtney and Scott sneak out early, and he half-jokingly asks her to marry him. She says yes, and this is why the divorce rate in America is about 50 percent.
The next morning, there are somehow no regrets, and Scott still wants to go through with the quickie Vegas wedding. Kourtney says yes, but isn’t so sure. At breakfast, Kourtney drops the marriage bomb, and Kris is devastated. Kim (or Khloe) is all for it. Honestly, I can’t tell the difference between any of these three sisters.
They go to the same Little White Chapel Britney Spears got married at (her first failed marriage to Jason Alexander, not her second failed one to Kevin Federline). Kourtney is still having doubts. Kris calls husband Bruce Jenner, who tells her to just say no. Kris tries to talk her daughter out of it. Surprisingly, she makes a lot of valid points about needing family to be around. Kourtney goes to tell Scott she doesn’t want to do it this way. He agrees. At dinner that night, Khloe tells Kourtney to ride him hard, and she thinks that’s good advice.
In the B-story of this episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the young Kardashians, Kendall and Kylie, are looking at pictures of puppies on the Internet. Even though there’s a family dog, Kendall wants her own. Father Bruce Jenner says no, since he knows he’ll be taking care of it. Kris, always looking for new ways to emasculate her husband, takes the girls puppy shopping. The dogs are adorable, and Kris is falling in love with them. She caves,and they go home with the cute white fluffy dog. Kris decides to hide the dog for a while from Bruce. Great, even in “reality” shows we’re getting these cliche sitcom staples.
While the older sisters are in Vegas, Kendall is playing with her cute puppy, trying to hide it from Bruce. I hate this show, but dang it, I want that puppy! It’s perhaps the single most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Eventually, Bruce finds the dog, and he finds out it’s Kendall’s. Like a true kid, she rats out her mother immediately. He calls Kris, and she just talks about how she stopped the wedding, then hangs up. The episodes ends with Bruce walking into Kendall’s room to see dog poop on the rug. It’s a metaphor for his life.
On the next episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians: the girls take a homeless man in to give him a shave and a shower. No, seriously, that’s what they do.
