There’s a pattern with Scott Disick and the Kardashian ladies. He does well for a while, they all love him and then he screws up big time. He disappears, maybe goes to rehab and then slowly creeps back into everyone’s lives by displaying good behavior. Right now, we’re in the last phase of that cycle and this time he’s bought a house in order to get back in everyone’s good graces.
The problem is I don’t think he means any of it.
In a deleted scene from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Disick gives Kris Jenner a tour of his new home, and while he walks around showing her his new home life, he mumbles stuff like, “It’s a lot to get used to.” And when Jenner mentioned that he’s going to be domestic before he knows it, he says, “I wouldn’t go that far.”
You really start to feel bad for him. It’s not that a father of three should be blacking out in Vegas clubs all the time, but he’s never given the impression that he wants to be a soccer dad. Kourtney and Kris are trying to mold him into someone he’s not and it just isn’t fair.
He does need to grow up, but I don’t think it’s fair to expect him to go from the party-boy lifestyle he loves to living in suburbia and being happy about it. All these changes he’s making, he’s doing it because he has to, not because he wants to.
If Kourtney were trying to break the cycle, she could be a little more willing to compromise. Maybe they live closer to the action of Los Angeles and not an hour away in Calabasas. It just seems like meeting in the middle on these lifestyle choices would make it easier for Disick to be consistent and get the whole family out of this cycle.
If for no other reason than there are three small children involved.
Certainly, no one has the right answers but the two of them, but from the outside, the fix seems pretty simple.
