Season 12 of the smash hit E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on Sunday, May 1. Episode 3 airs tonight, May 15, and E! has released three exciting sneak peeks of the newest episode, according to Gossip Cop. One clip released this week features an argument between Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian over Kris Jenner's decision to help her only son, Rob Kardashian, Jr., purchase a house.
"You are one of the world's biggest liars."Khloé Kardashian's argument with her mother centers around the fact that Kris Jenner and other members of the family, particularly Kim Kardashian West, have repeatedly accused Khloé of enabling her younger brother and his refusal to seek help as he has dealt with clinical depression and significant weight gain over the past couple of years. Gossip Cop reports that the new house was purchased via the Kardashian family trust, but Kris Jenner claims in the clip that Rob Kardashian covered the down payment himself.
"I would have such deep fights with my family because I was 'enabling' Rob [Kardashian] by letting him live with me, and then the one person who yelled at me the most, which is my mom, now she's helping Rob?! I just find it mind-blowing."Rob Kardashian and his fiancée, celebrity entrepreneur Blac Chyna, announced that he is going to be a father, via a pregnant emoji posted to Blac Chyna's Instagram account on May 6. Her spokesman then told People that the couple would have preferred not to announce it that way and that Blac Chyna wanted to wait until Mother's Day to announce it officially, but the Kardashians leaked the announcement to the press without her permission as a form of promotion for Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.Khloé Kardashian's argument with Kris Jenner was filmed long before the pregnancy announcement. The relationship between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna became known to the family in Episode 2 of Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians; this has reportedly caused friction because Kris Jenner's youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, age 18, has been the on-again, off-again girlfriend of Blac Chyna's ex-fiancé, Tyga. Tyga is the father of her son, King Cairo, age 3. Blac Chyna and Tyga called off their wedding in 2014. Kris Jenner calls in her old friend, Faye Resnick, in another sneak peek at Episode 3 of Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, tasking her with helping to set up Rob Kardashian's new house. Faye Resnick is now known to a new generation of television viewers, after having been portrayed by Connie Britton on the wildly popular FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson earlier this year. Kris Jenner was portrayed by Selma Blair in the miniseries, and her late ex-husband -- the father of Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, and Rob Kardashian, Jr. -- Robert Kardashian, Sr. was portrayed by David Schwimmer.Kim Kardashian West and Khloé Kardashian discuss Rob Kardashian's newfound joy and confidence since beginning his relationship with Blac Chyna in the third and final sneak peek at Episode 3 of Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. They express their relief that their younger brother's depression seems to have lifted and he has taken steps to embrace his public image instead of expending energy trying to avoid prying eyes and hiding from the press.Kim Kardashian West brings up the bad blood between Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna, and suggests that Rob should have pulled Kylie aside and let her know about the relationship before the entire world found out. She and Khloé agree that their brother lacks loyalty.
What do you think of the sneak peeks of Episode 3 of Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians? Are Kim and Khloé right that their brother lacks loyalty because he kept them all in the dark?
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET. Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have yet to announce their wedding plans.
