I will admit that I used to be a closet Kardashian fan. I’m not so much a fan of the family circus anymore, but I first started watching it when Kourtney got pregnant. It was shortly after I had my first daughter and I somehow found comfort in knowing Kourtney was a relatively young mom like me, dealing with a surprise pregnancy in the best way she could. I loved how she effortlessly seemed to step into her new role of motherhood and how she made it look hard but manageable all at the same time. She showed that it could be “cool” to be a mom and I loved how she marched to the beat of her own drum.
But as strong and independent as Kourtney has always been, there’s also been one major dissonance in her life: Scott Disick, the father of her three children. It’s obvious she loves him, but it’s even more obvious the man has some serious problems. And in the latest Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode, he got really, really real about how messed up his problems really are.
