The family openly discusses their feelings about Kris and Bruce living apart, and the three older sisters spend more time together than ever, as Kourtney and Kim make it their mission to support Khloé, who faces continuing uncertainty about the future of her marriage to Lamar Odom. Rob commits himself fully to the designer sock business and moves into his own place, while younger sister Kendall contemplates moving into a home of her own as well.
Is there drama? You bet – especially when Kris starts to feel like she’s getting additional space at home, Kim decides to reclaim some of it for her new family.
