'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' Recap: Scott Disick Continues Down Destructive Path

Scott DisickLeave it with E! to show an hour-long episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians tonight right in the middle of the VMAs. So as Kim Kardashian, fresh off of her honeymoon, was handing out an award to Justin Bieber in real time, we were watching her and now-husband Kris Humphries in Bora Bora months ago, when he didn't even know she was married before.

Hard to believe he didn't know (doesn't everyone know that?), but even harder to believe was the fact that she'd spring it on him there at dinner with her whole family. It was awkward to say the least, but clearly not a deal breaker ... and not as awkward as watching Scott Disick continue his downward alcohol-fueled spiral.


After getting all cozy with Kourtney Kardashian in a pool, he brought up his recent little fall from the wagon in Las Vegas as proof that he can handle a few drinks. She was clearly surprised that he drank and didn't tell her, especially after all the work he's supposedly done. But like a true addict, he manipulated the facts so he could get his fix, telling her he just wanted to "fit in." 

"I didn't get out of control," he told her. "It's nothing crazy, but sitting here in Tahiti makes me think I wouldn't mind having a drink or two because I believe that I'm in a place that I could have a drink or two responsibly and not get crazy."

Yeah right. So after feuding with Rob Kardashian, Scott decided beer was the way to bond and reconnect. The two slammed back some brewskies, went for a drunken bike ride, and ended up with the bike in the ocean. Good times ... until he went home. Kourtney was clearly and justifiably pissed, but seemingly not going to do anything about it.

"I cannot live my life controlling him," she said. No, but she could live her life without him controlling her emotions by kicking him to the curb. I'm confident things are only going to get worse from here, which is unfortunate.

Also unfortunate was Kris Jenner's ridiculously whiny, pouty behavior due to her bad body image. When Bruce Jenner tried to sweetly plan a renewal of their vows, she freaked out because there might be pictures taken, and she feels old and fat. Not sure if she's noticed, but we can see her on TV too. Personally, I think it was all just scripted as an excuse for her to show off pictures of her and her bangin' body from years past in bikinis. I mean those flashbacks were ridiculous, no?

I will say this week is the first time I've found anything remotely charming about Kris Humphries. While he was trying a little too hard to be the fun guy, he actually seemed a lot more down to earth and even intelligent than the grunting oaf I had him pegged for previously. I love when he rubbed the makeup off of Kim's face. Hopefully Scott and Rob and their douchebag ways won't rub off on him.

Oh, and in case you couldn't tear yourself away from the VMAs, Kim's $75,000 diamond earring that was lost in last week's episode was found on the ocean's floor. Sleep easier knowing that.

Do you think Scott Disick is headed back to his bad behavior?
