Last night, the stunning reality star posted a revealing outtake from a nude photoshoot on her Instagram account.
The shot, which shows Kourtney sitting on a rock in the nude with wet hair, appeared to be both a salute to Mother’s Day—Kourtney, 38, captioned the shot “mother nature”—but also a dramatic visual riposte to her on/off partner Scott Disick, with whom she was pictured having a dramatic argument on the E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians last night.
Disick, clearly positioned on the show in the classic role of Stage Villain Ex-Boyfriend, admitted secretly bringing a woman with him to Costa Rica, where the K-folk and their film crew were enjoying a little quiet vacation time, doing entirely normal things like have dinner surrounded by fire dancers (which as Scott pointed out, with a gigantic clunk, was conveniently appropriate as he “already felt under fire.”)
In perhaps the least convincingly authentic fight scene ever committed to tape, the sisters confronted Disick about bringing the “random” girl to the house.
“I’m doing everything I can to not think about her,” Disick mewled. “Every night you get to go to sleep with our kids but I have to go to sleep alone, sad and miserable.”
The former couple have three children: Mason, 7, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 2.
Their relationship, as regular viewers know well, consists of a three-part loop: Scott pines over Kourtney, Kourtney tells Scott it’s over and they aren’t ever getting back together, and then Kourtney and her entire family go ballistic when he is spotted with other women, thereby giving him hope and sending him into another fit of romantic self-pity.
Accused of playing the victim on last night’s show, Disick attempted what would surely have been the greatest reverse in romantic history when he told Kourtney, “So let me fuck you then, then I wouldn’t have to do this.”
Amazingly, this charming line did not work—even when he added, in his defense, “I’m a fucked up horrible sex addict.”
Things swiftly resolved themselves in typical Kardashian style, when Khloé threw a glass of water in his lap, saying, “If you need to get your dick wet so badly then get your dick wet.”
Kim followed suit, and then their mother, Kris Jenner, did the same.
That’s right: all this stuff happens in front of your mother in Kardashian-land.
This turn of events has not come completely out of the blue: Disick was caught with another woman during their trip to Dubai in last week's episode, and in early March, Kourtney stepped out with 23-year-old model Younes Bendjima.
Either they both never learn, or else the ratings on this particular storyline are so, so hot they’ve decided to keep the feedback loop running a few more weeks yet.
