On The Kardashians, the family’s new Hulu reality series, Kourtney Kardashian’s relationship with Travis Barker and the anguish it has caused Scott Disick, her ex-boyfriend and father of her children, have been major plot points. But in the latest episode of the show, Kardashian lamented to her friend Steph Shepherd that, in reality, the Disick drama is much more minor in her life, and the show is being editing in a way that misrepresents the situation.
“[Travis and I] film and have the best time ever, and then we’ve been watching the edits, and it’s been so annoying because they’re swirling us in with this Scott drama,” Kardashian told Shepherd, via BuzzFeed.
Kardashian was particularly upset with her relationship with Disick overshadowing her engagement during the episode Barker proposed to her. “While shooting our show, we are all executive producers, so we get to see cuts of the show and give notes on the episodes and make sure our stories are being told,” she said. “I am in one of the best places I’ve ever been in my life, and it’s time for our show to catch up.”
“That night [Barker proposed to me], I wasn’t like, ‘God, everyone’s such fucking assholes for bringing up this [Disick’s reaction] because it wasn’t a part of the night. It was like two seconds of the night. I didn’t even remember it until I saw a cut of the episode,” she added. (In the episode, Kendall Jenner accused Kardashian of not having sympathy for Disick and how he felt about her moving on and marrying Barker rather than him.)
In a confessional, Kardashian added that the way the show was edited is “enabling this old narrative and buying into something that doesn’t really exist.” She continued, “It should be an empowering episode about me getting out of toxic relationships and really having this fairytale love story that is my reality.”
With the Disick stuff in particularly, Kardashian told Shepherd, “I wish they would take that out and put it in the next episode, and give us our respect and let us have our moment. I’m like, ‘Why is the fairytale not being told? Like, how could this be taken negatively?’” She added that she and Disick “have been broken up for seven years,” and she’s “allowed to create new memories and new ways of doing things.”
