Baby on board? On Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Sunday, November 13, episode, Kim Kardashian considered the possibility of giving kids North and Saint a new baby brother or sister. As she debated what it really means to be a mom, Kris Jenner debated what it means to be a good daughter.
Kim dropped the news that she’s been considering getting a surrogate and moving forward with a third pregnancy, as Khloé Kardashian was complaining that Kim’s hips have been so curvy since getting pregnant. Kim told Khloé that there was a chance she could be the surrogate! Is that or is that not the most Kardashian thing you’ve ever heard?
Kim headed off to her doctor hoping to find out if her body would even be well enough to have a third baby on her own, given that she’d had so many medical problems in her previous pregnancies. The answer wasn’t exactly yes, so she took sister Kourtney Kardashian along to a different fertility specialist. Sadly, he labeled any third pregnancy “high-risk” and suggested a surrogate.
“If the two doctors I trust have told me it would not be safe to get pregnant again, I have to listen to that,” she said sadly. The only benefit she could see to surrogacy was the ability to have a baby without being noticed by paparazzi, which would let her raise the child privately for as long as she and husband Kanye West wanted.
At Kourtney’s suggestion, Kim met with a woman named Natalie who had carried a pregnancy and used a surrogate. When the mobile mogul revealed her fear that she wouldn’t love the third child in the same way as the two she carried, Natalie reassured Kim she absolutely would love them all the same.
Where Is the (Brotherly) Love?
Kendall Jenner went to will.i.am’s studio to film the music video for the remake of the Black Eyed Peas’ 2003 hit “Where Is the Love?” The young model called it a “direct response” to gun violence and said, “I think it’s very crazy what’s going on in the world.”
Feeling passionate after recording her part in the clip, Kendall got lunch with Khloé, and the two agreed that with the huge platform the Kardashians have, it would be wrong for them not to start speaking out about the causes that matter to them.
When Kendall told big brother Rob Kardashian about her plans to get more active, he warned her against the potential “backlash” and “hate.” He succeeded in scaring her into believing that if she started speaking up, she’d do more damage than good. Luckily, Kim told Kendall later that it was the right thing to do and that she could come along to a lunch she was hosting for Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization dedicated to combating gun violence.
Asking the Tough Questions
Kris invited Faye Resnick over to discuss the idea of finding a videographer to help her mom, M.J. Shannon, make an oral history of her life. M.J. agreed to the legacy video right away, but when Khloé and Scott Disick told Kris she should be the one to interview her mom, she shot the idea down. She later revealed she was worried about being an “emotional wreck.”
Ultimately, Kris agreed to interview M.J., but she was right: She did start crying. M.J. asked her biggest fear, and Kris choked out, “Losing someone,” before walking off camera. As Khloé consoled her mom, the other sisters stepped up to ask M.J. questions like, “How many people have you slept with?” and “Do you have any quotes that you live by?”
“I’m so happy I did this,” Kris told the camera after she came back out to finish off with a few emotional questions.
Every Kardashian-Jenner for Gun Safety
At the Everytown lunch, Kim, Kris, Khloé and Kourtney were honored for speaking out … but Kendall was missing.
“I would say if you’re passionate about something, get behind it 100 percent. F–k the backlash. Who cares?” Kim fumed to the camera.
Luckily, Kendall showed up just in time to hear the testimony of survivors of gun violence. She heard from the daughter of a San Bernardino shooting victim, the mother of a teenager who was killed for listening to loud music and the sister of a woman who died at Sandy Hook.
“It just makes me want to get more involved in Everytown,” she said. “It would be irresponsible of me to take this platform for granted. I need to appreciate it and use it.”
