On Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 11 Episode 11, Kimberly Kardashian was tasked with planning her mom’s 60th birthday party.
But from Scott Disick going to rehab to Lamar Odom being found in a Las Vegas brothel, Momager Kris’ big 6-0 felt like an afterthought.
In the midst of party planning, Kim learned that Disick went to rehab, a decision that everyone agreed could only good for the wildman.
But if you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online, you know it’s not the first time, as Khloe pointed out with moderate skepticism.
It was revealed that Kim went to see Scott, bringing along his three kids with Kourtney Kardashian (who did not make the trip there).
Then it was Lamar Odom’s hospitalization which was was addressed, via a series of news reports about the former NBA champion.
Text appeared on screen, describing what had happened to Lamar for viewers and saying that “filming was stopped for a brief period.”
Chances are, if you follow the Kardashians at all, you were well aware of all of this, but it helped but the following scenes into context.
The pain, the fear, the uncertainty. The utter lack of control.
“I’m so overwhelmed with what’s going with Lamar,” Kris said, two weeks after. “It’s heartbreaking. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so powerless.”
Khloe, meanwhile, was spending “every second in the hospital with Lamar. She feels guilty for needing to leave,” Kourtney said.
She also decided not to call off her divorce from Odom so that she could continue making the best medical decisions for her ex.
As we now know, this did not lead to a reconciliation between the pair, but it did show us how much Khloe cares for and loves Lamar.
While this was going on, Kim felt bad about celebrating her own birthday, but Kanye West through her a party and left her no choice.
Caitlyn Jenner was in attendance, hanging out with Corey Gamble, Kris’ new boyfriend who was prominently featured in this episode.
If Corey Gamble is paid to date Kris Jenner, Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 11 Episode 11 was a very good week for him.
Though Kris initially resisted Gamble’s attempts to take care of her and make her relax, she capitulated and let her man do his thing.
Sometimes, even the head of an empire needs rest.
