Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s on E! was especially relatable because it was family oriented. Kim was hesitant to enter the dating scene, and everyone fought like dogs to get their hands on a pair of Los Angeles Lakers tickets.
Kim’s Blind Date
Kris Jenner’s quest to find Kim a cute Armenian boy is hands down one of the most hilarious aspects of last night’s episode. After expressing that she is over dating people in the industry, Kim tells her mother that she would be interested in finding a nice Armenian boy like her father.
As usual, Kris takes Kim’s comment a little too far and goes searching in Glendale, California where the Armenian population is apparently hopping. She and Kourtney search in supermarkets, restaurants, little shops, etc. for a boy that might meet Kim’s impossible standards.
It is amazing what lengths a mother will go for her daughters happiness, even if Kris is somewhat overbearing. Finally, Kris finds a man that she thinks Kim will like through a friend. He is Armenian and rumored to be good-looking (Kris has only spoken to him on the phone at this point). Kim flips out that her mother wants to set her up on a blind date and flat-out refuses to partake. Kris gives Kim the blind date, Alecko’s, phone number in hopes that she will change her mind.
Eventually, Kourtney is able to convince Kim that it is rude to leave Alecko hanging. Kim gives him a call and he mentions a date at her favorite restaurant. This ropes Kim in and she decides to give the blind date a chance.
Alecko takes Kim out to eat and they have a good time. Kim comes home happy to have put herself out there but convinced Alecko is not the one for her. Although she was annoyed with her mother’s pushy attitude about dating Kim sees that she is only trying to make her daughter happy and active instead of a bump on the couch.
Khloe’s Lakers Dilemma
Now that Khloe Kardashian is married to Los Angeles Lakers star, Lamar Odom, she receives a set of four family tickets. Unfortunately for her, everyone in her family wants to go but there are not enough tickets.
Throughout the episode Khloe’s mother, Bruce, and everyone else in her family tries to find ways to bribe her into having access to the tickets. Kris bakes Khloe and Lamar tons of food, Bruce tries to help with chores, and Rob tries not to say anything at all.
Due to Rob’s politeness Khloe decides to let him go with his date, her and her friend Malika. This causes Kris, Khloe’s mother, to get very angry that non-family members have a chance to go.
Khloe decides that she has had it! On the evening of the Lakers game she tells everyone that nobody is going to the game and that they are all going to watch it as a family at home. At first people rush madly for the tickets, but they finally get the message. Instead of fighting over the tickets they enjoy a nice family evening together.
