'Kourtney & Kim Take New York' recap: 'Go Get Your Man'

How did I forget that the second riveting season of "KKTNY" started last week? I missed the premiere, probably still in a food coma from Thanksgiving to be quite honest.

All I can do is thank my lucky stars for the re-run episodes. Speaking of those, I thought that the repeats of the Fairytale Wedding would be in heavy rotation for at least the next three months, but I guess that would just be awkward now, huh?

Instead, the opener included a quick re-cap of the tabloid coverage and proceeded to give us a glimpse of how the divorce came about. Honestly, I thought that moving in with Kourtney, Scott and Mason was a good idea for the newlywed couple. I mean, Mason is the smartest Krayon in the box, so I’m still not sure what exactly went wrong here. I guess there was only room enough in the Krew for one Kris (Jenner) Kardashian, so Mr. Kris Humphries-Kardashian just had to go!

Fast forward to Episode 2

As usual, we start with a(nother) recap of Ep1, flashing back to divorce tabloids. Teardrops! I can’t help but be reminded of how I wake up each day, checking the news to see if I was just having a really, really bad dream. But, I wasn’t. Enter the Cheban twins, who whisk us away to the Disick house, where we ultimately end up with only 2/3 of the Kourtney, Kim, Khloe Krew … as Kim decides that she should spend some time her husband convince him to come back to New York with the Kool Kids. 

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Kim persuades Kris into thinking that she is working “18-hour” days, while he is just a free agent. Is that the same thing as being poor? If so, it only makes sense that he should just come back to NY.

This situation is reminding me more and more of J.Lo’s first marriage. And Kim’s first marriage. Either way, Kris decides to come back to New York, and not just because "KKTMN" sounds completely absurd!

OH, and can we talk about how Scott was wearing a “Team Kardashian” T-shirt while proclaiming that he isn’t “asking for a ton of respect”? Darn right you aren’t asking for respect, diddy-boppin’ around in that mess AND letting the world know that you sleep in your baby mama’s guest bedroom? You better not ask for any R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!!!

True to form, the tail end of this episode was a bit of a cluster. Kourtney is going all “Hoarders"/"Intervention” on Scott’s mom, throwing away old blankets and other family treasures. Kim is upset with Khlo-money for … I’m not sure what exactly. Man, I’m ready to see the ring leader come back next week with her Justin Beiber haircut. Hopefully she can set things straight. You know who I’m talking about. Kristen Mary Houghton Kardashian Jenner Kardashian.

See ya next week, dolls! XOXO!!!
