After lashing out at her family over a plate of cookies during a family vacation to Lake Tahoe, it became clear that the 40-year-old reality star’s frustration was sparked by her relationship struggles, as Khloé noted in her confessional.
“Kim has been struggling privately behind camera about her relationship, and it’s tough because Kim is clearly redirecting so much of her frustration and sadness and anger,” the Good American founder said. “And, you know, sometimes you just take things out on something that has nothing to do with what you’re going through. It’s not the cookies’ fault.”
At the time the episode was filmed, Kim and Kanye were still together, but things were definitely rocky.
“There’s no fighting, like, now it’s all calm so I just roll with it,” the SKIMS founder said in a conversation with Khloé, who revealed to the cameras that the estranged pair had been fighting right before the Tahoe trip, which Kanye didn’t attend.
“Kim is dealing with so much right now, and it’s tough because before we left, her and Kanye had this big fight,” Khloé said.
The show then played a flashback featuring Kim crying over her unstable marriage. “I honestly can’t do this anymore,” she said to her sisters while sobbing. “Why am I still in this place where I’m stuck for years? Like he goes and moves to a different state, every year, and I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job…
“I think he deserves someone that can go support his every move, go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming — I can’t do that. He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything,” she continued.
The tearful conversation became even more intense when the KKW Beauty founder said, “I feel like a f**king failure, that it’s like, a third f**king marriage,” she confessed. “Yeah I feel like a f**king loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy.”
Kim officially filed for divorce in February, while Kanye responded in April. They are both seeking joint legal and physical custody of their four kids: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
