I'm not sure why we needed a two-night, two-hour Keeping Up With the Kardashians special to see Scott Disick open his restaurant, RYU, but that's what we got. While in part one last night Khloe Kardashian was under fire for not giving her family enough time, tonight Scott Disick was in the hot seat once again.
Khloe and Lamar ended up deciding to join the NY festivities and go and support Scott and his restaurant. So the whole family was there to show him just how proud they were of him ... only Scott was nowhere to be found.
Instead he was out boozin' it up on the town until the wee hours of the morning, providing flashbacks of the bad behavior he's repeated over and over again. For awhile it seemed like perhaps he'd changed, but tonight provided a pretty strong suggestion that he likely never really will. Of course, it's not all his fault.
As Kris Jenner astutely pointed out -- Kourtney completely enables him. After all of his cavorting about and ignoring her family, after the restaurant's opening, Kourtney actually gave him a "love" promise ring. Jenner stood by watching, aghast.
"It's the same old story over and over," she told Kim. "He misbehaves, she ignores it, then rewards him for his bed behavior." Then there's the little matter of them having slept in separate beds for the past two and a half years. As Jenner said, "They're too young for that," and they're not even married yet. "I'm just over it," she said.
Kim echoed her sentiments, "We're all over it."
I've long rooted for Kourtney to split from Scott, but with their new baby girl, Penelope Scotland Disick, and, of course, Mason, it was rather depressing to see such a cold, hard look at their dysfunctional relationship. While no one wants to see a family split apart, you really have to wonder just how long they can last like this, and how soon it will be before Kourtney is finally over it.
As for Kanye West's appearance, it was a nice bonus, but we didn't learn anything about him and Kim we didn't already know. Though I have to say the electricity between them is at least a bazillion times stronger than any we saw between her and Kris Humphries.
Do you think Scott and Kourtney can make it in the long run?
