They completely went there.
Andy Cohen, not one to tip-toe round uncomfortable matters at a “Real Housewives” reunion or on his late-night Bravo program “Watch What Happens Live,” did not maintain his prying questions again throughout the hour-long Part One of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reunion that aired Thursday. (Part Two airs Sunday at 9 p.m. EDT/PDT on E!)
“You gave me no ground rules, so I’m gonna go there,” Cohen warns collection stars Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, and Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner earlier than diving in to questions on why the collection ended (Kris says they “were all feeling a little overwhelmed”), early days of the present (“close friends were such haters and so jealous,” per Kourtney), and a lot more.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s ‘wonderful co-parenting relationship’
When Cohen inquires about what contributed to the end of her nearly seven-year marriage to rapper Kanye West, Kim declines to provide any particulars.
“I honestly don’t think I would even say it here on TV, but it was not like one specific thing that happened on either part,” she says. “I think it was just a general difference of opinions on a few things that led to this decision.”
Today, the Skims founder says the 2 “have an amazing co-parenting relationship” with their kids North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. “I respect him so much,” Kim continues. “That was my friend first and foremost for along time. So, I can’t see that going away.
“I will forever be Kanye’s biggest fan,” she adds. “He’s the father of my kids. Kanye will always be family.”

Explosive fights that almost didn’t air
The family reveals there were two quarrels they initially wanted to conceal.
Kris needed to take away a blow-up between Kim and Kourtney that played out during Season 18 in March 2020. But the fight over Kourtney’s work ethic, which turned physical, happened in front of a network rep, which would’ve made leaving it out nearly impossible.
Kylie says she and Kendall tried to omit their heated fight which viewers saw in October 2020. Friction first arose over both wanting to wear an outfit and then escalated when Kylie wouldn’t drive Kendall home.
“We’re very free,” Kylie says. “We let the whole lot be filmed, and within the second you are like, ‘I’m by no means going to let this air on tv.’ But as soon as these feelings go away and months go, you are like, ‘OK, it would not hassle me as a lot.'”
For Kendall, watching the episodes triggers the return of negative feelings. “We actually fought once more,” the model says. “You relive all these feelings and that anger in a manner.”

A snub from Kris Humphries
Cohen transitions to the subject of Kim’s ex-husband, former basketball participant Kris Humphries, by pretending to deliver him out on stage. “I might’ve died,” Kim says, clutching her chest.
As it turns out, Kris says she tried to save her daughter from the marriage, which lasted only 72 days before Kim filed for divorce. Kim says the night before the 2011 wedding, her mom told her “Go. I’m going to place you in a automobile. No one will discover you. Just depart, and I’ll deal with it.”
But Kim worried about the reputation leaving someone at the altar would give her. “I assumed, ‘We’re filming this for a TV present. If I depart, I’m going to be generally known as the runaway bride without end, and it may be an enormous joke, and I believe I simply have chilly toes.'”
By her honeymoon, Kim knew she shouldn’t have gone through with the marriage. And when she began to feel suffocated by Humphries’ large shoes lying about their hotel room, she knew her union needed to end.
“I absolutely broke up with him within the worst manner,” she says. Kim says she “absolutely” owes her ex an apology, which she says she called him “for months” to deliver.
Kim also remembers how Humphries once gave her the cold shoulder when they ran into each other a hotel in 2015. “I had North in my hand and my huge, big stomach. I used to be about to provide beginning to Saint,” she says. “All of his buddies received up and mentioned hello to me, and he simply actually checked out me and would not even communicate to me.”
Kim was ‘super desperate’ for fame
Though Kim denied calling the paparazzi on herself, she copped to visiting places where she’d knew they’d be lurking.
“Anytime I might get hair and make-up for the present, there was no manner I used to be going dwelling and washing it off,” she says. “I might cease off at The Ivy (restaurant) to select up one thing to go, even when it was like some bread to go – something – an empty bag. I might run in and fake like … ‘Did I depart my glasses right here?’ “
The beauty mogul adds: “I believe individuals have to be more sincere about these moments in life once you’re simply tremendous determined and need that.”
Motherhood intensifies Kim’s regrets about her sex tape
When Cohen asks if she thinks the present would’ve been as profitable at its 2007 launch with out her sex tape made together with her ex, singer Ray J launched earlier that very same 12 months, Kim admits “in all probability not.” While she hasn’t had to address the tape with any of her four children yet, she has thought about that moment.
The tape is “one thing that I’ve to stay with for the remainder of my life,” she says. “I attempt to not have any regrets, but it surely’s in all probability the one factor that I want didn’t exist, and if I may erase any of the silly issues that I’ve achieved in life, that is in all probability it. And it is more so from being a mother than something.”
