Siblings fight. It's natural. But what's less natural is displaying your whole life in front of millions of people every week. So when the Kardashian sisters argue, you know it's going to be larger than life. Over the last few years, Kourtney Kardashian has found herself at the center of many a quarrel between her and her sisters, and, according to a recent interview with her sister Kim, the upcoming season will see it get even worse. But what is the root of this rift, and will the family get through it intact?

Kourtney Puts Her Family above all Else

For years, Kourtney's relationship with her on-again, off-again partner Scott Disick was the emotional center of Keeping up with the Kardashians. We all know how important Kourtney's familial relationships are to her from watching this, so it makes sense that she would want more time to focus on her family--that's the reason she's been giving for taking a step back from the show. However, with her and her sisters' livelihood having been their reality show for so many years, it's bound to be difficult for her to balance the two.

Khloe and Kim Begin to Resent Kourt

Kourtney's dilemma between spending time with her three children, Mason, Penelope, and Reign, and filming Keeping up with the Kardashians began to take its toll back in 2018, when Kim famously lost it over Kourtney pulling out of the family Christmas card shoot. Both women are working mothers, whose families are very important to them, so tensions were running high. These tensions have continued, with Khloe (also a mom) and Kim expressing their resentment over Kourtney possibly stepping back from the show and leaving them to pick up the slack.

Kim Speaks Out

On Tuesday, Kim joined Laura Wasser on her podcast, All's Fair with Laura Wasser to talk about the upcoming season of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Kim revealed, “I might need an attorney when that first episode comes out,” citing her feud with Kourtney as the reason. The media mogul and aspiring attorney explained that tensions would rise to an all-time high, explaining that, "Our family’s never dealt with this before." Kim has been the most vocal (and dramatic) about the conflict between the sisters, so she might just be playing up the drama for publicity.

Will the Family Be OK?

Families, especially the Kardashians, fight all the time, and usually make up eventually. Even though this tension between Kourtney's sisters, her professional life, and her being a mom has steadily risen over the past few seasons, we can be sure the women will work it out. As Kim assured Laura Wasser, "You know, we’re a really close family. It all works out." In the meantime, it will be exciting to see how the drama plays out, and we can be sure that the Kardashian-Jenners will find ways to entertain us in the meantime.
