Kourtney Kardashian said the tensions unfolding themselves in KUWTK Season 15 still exist and have always existed because of Kim and Khloe’s criticizing nature.
In the trailers for episode one of KUWTK Season 15, Kim and Kourtney can be seen having some explosive fights. The topics range from Kourtney asking Kim for a more lax schedule to Kim bashing Kourtney for not looking interesting enough. In a new interview with E!, Kourtney says that she is still working out the leftover tensions from the feuds with her sisters, but that her focus is her own growth now.
She added that the tensions that are extremely visible this season were simmering under the surface in season 14, explaining, “I think it started at the end of season 14, a lot of tension building between us. I felt like every day almost I was being picked on and criticized and I just couldn’t take it any more.”
She also added that she is still working out her problems with Kim and Khloe, and has now shifted her focus to herself and being more expressive. She said, “Honestly, I think it’s ongoing. I’ve been really working on myself a lot and I think through my growth, I’m better at expressing myself. I think in the past I’ve always been great at like not being emotional. I think that I’m better now at expressing my feelings. So I think this is ongoing. It’s a lot of communication instead of letting things go back into the way that they were. It’s definitely a process and you’ll see it throughout the season.”
In one of the trailers, Kim says about Kourtney, “She just doesn’t want to be a Kardashian anymore!” Kourtney was asked about her thoughts regarding that accusation, and she laughed it off by saying, “I’m definitely proud to be a Kardashian.” She also added, “I was watching that moment and I was like, ‘Are they talking about me?!’”
Kourtney further said that these days, her favorite sister is Kendall, the 22 year old supermodel. Kourtney explained the reasons behind their sudden friendship, saying, “Kendall because we’re just like really best friends. We’re on the same wavelength. Like we like the same stuff, we like to do the same stuff. We have good conversations, we have fun together, there’s no drama with us. Kendall has my back in this season, you’ll see. When I was watching some cuts, I see my sisters talking about me and I obviously have no idea because I wasn’t there and I’m like, ‘What?! They’re saying this about me?’ And then Kendall has my back.”
Kourtney and Kendall have been known to have tensions between them in the past, but being in fresh relationships and being the only two sisters without a newborn baby to take care of seems to have brought them together.
The first episode of KUWTK Season 15 airs August 5.
