Fights between Kim and Kourtney are commonplace on Keeping up with the Kardashians, but it’s not typical for viewers to almost unanimously side with Kim. Tonight, however, most of the show’s fans took issue with Kourtney’s lackadaisical attitude towards her app.
Kourtney often comes across as one of the more responsible of the Kardashian ladies, but in reality, her younger sister is the take charge, no excuses family member following in Kris Jenner’s footsteps. Sure, Kim’s drama can get annoying, but she certainly knows how to get things done. She wants her sisters to show just as much drive as she does, so naturally, she was very disappointed when Kourtney decided to sit back and delay the release of an important app.
Although Kim was primarily angered by Kourtney’s inability to have the app ready in time, she also took issue with her older sister’s decision to make excuses. Kim would have much preferred for Kourtney to own up to the mistake and promise to get her act together. Instead, Kourtney used the birth of her third child as an excuse for her own lack of punctuality. Needless to say, this didn’t go over well with Kim.
Kim was very, very harsh with Kourtney, but her message was one that a lot of women would benefit from hearing. Having a baby is no easy ordeal, but there’s a point at which it is no longer acceptable to use childbirth as an excuse for professional failure. A lot of women successfully balance work and pregnancy; as Kim pointed out, Kourtney is not special.
Viewers aren’t always happy with what Kim has to say, but tonight, they seemed to approve of her tough approach. Several Twitter users echoed Kim while mentioning Kourtney’s failure to launch her app on time. A few annoyed viewers had even harsher words for Kourtney than Kim had.
Most viewers sided with Kim during this particular Kim versus Kourtney spat, but a few claimed that she could have been a bit more empathetic. Kourtney’s had to deal with a lot of stress of late, and, according to her supporters, the last thing she needs is a huge fight with her sister.
Between a crazy home life and continued drama with Scott Disick, Kourtney has a lot on her plate. However, her inability to abide by deadlines impacts on a lot of other people. If she really can’t balance her work and family obligations, it is up to her to take on a more manageable load instead of leaving her sisters and several other people in the lurch.
