When Kourtney Kardashian seemed to struggle answering a question on the red carpet, her sister, Kim, stepped in. The awkward moment, which happened during the build up to the People’s Choice Awards, reignited rumors of long-running tensions between the two siblings. Then, to add to the embarrassment, fans were left stunned as the camera slowly cut Kourtney out of the shot.
Kim and Kourtney are known to bicker on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Indeed, tensions have been apparent since 2011 when Kim’s tears over a lost a diamond earring caused her sister to remark, “Kim, there’s people that are dying.” Clashes continued in the latest season, with Kim labelling her sister a “fake humanitarian hoe.” While a recent spat saw Kourtney shame Kim and Khloé for eating candy.
The bickering, however, makes for compelling viewing. Indeed, it was the continued success of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that brought the three sisters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloé, with their mom, Kris Jenner, to the People’s Choice Awards. They were nominated for The Reality Show of 2019, an award they took home later that night. However, it was the red carpet incident that got fans talking.
In typical Kardashian style, the sisters and their mom showed up to the event immaculately turned out in designer outfits. They stopped for a brief interview with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic. Inevitably, they were asked which designers styled them for the awards. Kourtney, however, seemed to stumble over the answer. “I didn’t plan this,” Kourtney admitted. “Naeem Khan? Is that how you say it?”
It was then that Kim chimed in. “All that matters is that we’re wearing KKW Diamonds!” she declared in a timely namedrop of her fragrance. Then Kim turned to Kourtney and said with a patronizing smile, “I was saving you since you didn’t know who you were wearing.” Kourtney protested, “No, it’s Naeem Khan, I just didn’t know how to pronounce it.” Saucer of milk for the Kardashians.
