Much more went down on Sunday’s new Keeping Up With The Kardashians that Kris Jenner’s collaboration with Ariana Grande.
Unfortunately, some of it was very serious, including a raging wildfire and talk of prison reform.
But a clear highlight was a scene of Khloe piling praises onto Jordyn Woods, whom she would later blast as a home-wrecking “liar.”
Hindsight is 20/20, which makes one scene from Sunday night’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians so entertaining.
“I did wanna say,” Khloe announces at a party. “I’m just so proud of both Kylie and Jordyn.”
“Kylie,” she says. “I know how hard you have worked on your company and everything.”
“And,” Khloe continues, gushing: “You’re so generous to share that with me and Kourtney and Jordyn.”
“And it’s such a blessing because you don’t have to share your blessings with us,” she says, adding: “But you kind of do.”
“Jordyn, for you to be turning 21,” Khloe continues.
“I’ve known you forever,” she says. “I’m so proud of you and the woman that you’re growing into.”
“And to see you guys just stick together and be best friends through thick and thin,” Khloe adds.
Yes, Kylie and Jordyn had an inseparable bond — the kind that only a temper tantrum from one of Kylie’s flesh-and-blood sisters could ruin.
“It’s just such a blessing,” Khloe continues. “Congratulations on everything, and this will be a huge success.”
Khloe praising Jordyn is dramatic irony at its best.
So remember when the 2018 Woolsey fire, which devastated swaths of southern California, made its way to Calabasas?
It resulted in some truly bizarre drama when Rob refused to evacuate.
His reason was both bizarre and touching: he didn’t want to miss out on a balloon delivery the next morning, for Dream’s second birthday.
That’s super sweet … but Khloe was pissed that he would endanger his life.
You can’t throw your daughter a party if you die. And yes, people died in that fire. Thankfully, Rob did not.
Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney rented a suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Though the hotel is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, keep in mind that this was months before Brunei instituted the death penalty for gay people.
The Kardashians weren’t ignoring a boycott or shrugging at murder — because this was filmed last year.
The three worried mothers watched live coverage of the raging inferno as it encroached upon their property.
“This has probably been the longest night of my life,” Khloe admitted.
Khloe later reflected upon the people who had lost everything in the fire, saying: “it breaks my soul.”
Notably, the episode made no mention of Kim and Kanye’s controversial choice to hire private firefighters to defend their neighborhood.
Everyone understands the desire to protect one’s home, but it really highlights how insulated the rich can be from the climate crisis.
Kris Jenner actually recognized that economic divide and vocally acknowledged it.
“There’s a lot of people who can’t afford to stay in a hotel,” Kris pointed out. “People died in their cars.”
The episode also featured Kim’s panel with Van Jones as she discussed her political activism for justice reform.
She spoke about studying the law and about the First Step Act.
Kim then very diplomatically spoke about appealing to the orange menace, Donald Trump, to grant clemency.
“I did consider the fact that I would get a lot of backlash if I went to the White House,” Kim admitted.

“People talk s–t about me all day long. I didn’t really care,” she said dismissively.
Here, she is hinting at a larger problem where stars can’t differentiate between trolls and actual criticism so they dismiss it all as “hate.”
But Kim then points out that it doesn’t really matter, because inmates “don’t care who signs that clemency paper.”
That … yeah, that’s absolutely right.
