Kourtney Kardashian Turning To Nicole Richie For Relationship Help With Scott Disick

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick may have seemed like happy parents during the televised birth of daughter Penelope, but behind the scenes Kourtney is reportedly turning to another reality star for advice on how to salvage the relationship.

Publications have been reporting on the rock relationship between Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick for nearly as long as they have been together. Scott has been accused of shirking his responsibilities with the family in favor of partying, and they have reportedly even slept in separate beds.

Though Kourtney Kardashian has reportedly been on the verge of ending the relationship several times, celebs from gather.com notes that it appears she is now ready to give it another chance.

But Kourtney is not going it alone — she is rumored to be seeking the advice of Nicole Richie, who has been able to withstand the pressures of reality television and tabloid attention to Joel Madden.

As celeb notes”

Richie shares a lot in common with the eldest Kardashian sister, including what must be a crazy-busy schedule and plenty of time in the spotlight. But what differentiates the two may be the success of their relationships; Richie’s marriage seems great and Kardashian’s partnership… well, maybe not so much.

Richie may have experienced a bit of a silly start on the small screen via The Simple Life with Paris Hilton. But she’s come a long way since her days hanging with la Hilton. The stylista has several successful clothing and accessories lines, including Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960. Plus she has a family of her own with husband, Joel Madden, and two children. And she even went back to a more polished version of reality TV with her appearance on Fashion Star.

The advice suggests that Kourtney Kardashian may be making a move away from the spotlight of reality television, though that certainly wasn’t the case with the birth of her daughter Penelope. As the New York Daily News noted, the normally private event was broadcast to the world, showing how Kourtney literally pulled her daughter into the world.
