Kourtney Kardashian: 'Raising Children Is a Job as Well'

If you don't know, Kourtney Kardashian wants you to know that she's a mom!

The 18th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is now two episodes in. The drama is heating up on all sides - naturally, we were left on the edge of our seat as last week's premiere ended with the highly-anticipated fist fight between Kourt and younger sis Kim Kardashian-West. The altercation got even messier when Kimmy questioned Kourtney's work ethic, and that is EXACTLY what Kourt addressed before last night's show!

"I won’t be live tweeting #KUWTK tonight as I’m spending time with my kids while they are on spring break," the eldest Kardashian wrote on Thursday. "I realize that a lot of the conversation right now surrounds my work ethic, and I feel like I need to just make one thing clear: raising children is a job as well."

She's totally right, but, the only thing that threw us for a loop was the "spring break" bit. Isn't like, every single school in America closed rn?

"It’s the hardest and most rewarding job that I have ever had," a second message read. "I’ve decided to put my focus on my kids and my lifestyle brand, Poosh, which is all about finding YOUR healthy balance for living your best life." Ironically, April 2nd marked the first year anniversary of Poosh's launch - and even though Kourtney wasn't tweeting about KUWTK on Thursday evening, that didn't stop her from providing some Poosh-powered posts!

"I don’t judge anyone who chooses a different route. And I hope that everyone can appreciate my choices as well." Her third and final tweet was signed off "with love."

The Fire That Fueled the Fist Fight

During the March 26th premiere, Kim all-but-calmly sat across from Kourtney. She then said that Kourtney "doesn't care about anything" and doesn't work as hard as the rest of the clan - specifically, her (Kim) and fellow younger sis Khloé Kardashian.

“I don’t want to hear this narrative anymore about this work ethic," Kourt fired back, "and how 'she’s the only one who has work ethic,' and 'she’s doing this, this and this' as if she’s better because 'she works more.'”

Thus, the brawl began, and it really puts the iconic Kardashian purse fight of 2008 to shame.


Kim admitted earlier this week that hitting her sister wasn't her "proudest moment." As it turns out, the whole ordeal was so surprising that the show's production was halted for an entire week - no coronavirus necessary!

“I think everyone was really shook for a minute,” she told Jimmy Fallon on Monday. “This isn’t our type of show. We want everyone to be comfortable and safe.”

She also revealed that momager Kris Jenner shed actual tears when first viewing the footage.

“She was like…who are you guys? What's going on?"

Well, Kourt - congrats on Poosh (and the kids)!
