Khloe Kardashian is shocked and hurt by her brother Rob’s behavior in the Aug. 28 episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’. As he declines family invite after invite, using Blac Chyna as an excuse, poor Khloe feels like she and her brother are drifting even farther apart! Will he ever reach out to her?
As usual, a bulk of the drama pertains to Khloe-and-Rob, but first, there’s a subplot where Scott Disick, 33,t tries to win Kourtney Kardashian, 34, back. Scott tells Khloe Kardashian, 32, that it’s his birthday this weekend, and he’s celebrating it in Las Vegas. Khloe is eager to have a distraction from Lamar Odom, 36, and she’s excited to party her stress away. But will Kourtney come? Not so fast…
Before they all jet off to Vegas, Khloe calls her lawyer to finalize her divorce papers with Lamar. She questions whether she can still make medical decisions for Lamar, who has asked Khloe that she stay on as his medical advisor — even though they’re getting divorced — and she’s not thrilled with the responsibility. “It’s bittersweet. I was holding out to help Lamar, but he’s not helping himself. I need to move on and just be done,” Khloe says in a confessional. “It’s time for me to start the next chapter of my life.”
Kris asks Khloe and Kourtney if they’re going to Scott’s birthday, and Kourtney hesitates. She’s afraid that if she goes — without the kids — Scott will get the wrong idea and think Kourtney wants him back. Obviously, Kourt is not here for that. She does end up going to support Khloe, though.
Back at Khloe’s house, she confides in Kris Jenner, 60, about Rob Kardashian, 29. Khlo says she’s had almost no contact with him, and it makes Kris sad that her son isn’t communicating with his sister. “There’s no effort on his part. He hasn’t reached out to me once,” Khloe admits. The sisters have been trying to include him and invite him to things, and Khloe’s frustrated that he isn’t making the same effort to let them in.
Things get heated between Kim Kardashian, 34, and Khloe when news that Khloe is refiling for her divorce hits the web. Kim starts to comment, but Khloe butts in. “Don’t try to act like you care. Nobody cares but me,” she scoffs. “Nobody gives a sh*t, and I understand why.” Kim is visibly shocked, and her jaw drops. “I think we dropped everything to help you. Your decision to want to get a divorce again is inevitable,” she says, defending herself. Khloe isn’t having it, though. “I don’t need anybody to care,” she fires back. “It’s not that we don’t care. I think it’s the best decision but I don’t want to rock the boat in case you change your mind,” Kim explains.
More drama with Rob flares up when Scott mentions he invited Rob to his birthday, but Rob declined because of Blac Chyna‘s pregnancy. “He said, ‘I’d love to, but because of Chyna, I’m not coming,'” Scott says, shaking his head. Ugh.
At Kris’ house, the matriarch tries to get Rob to get in touch with Khloe. “She misses her brother,” Kris tells him, but Rob defends his behavior. “You all aren’t that welcoming of this relationship, so you can’t expect me to be, like, let’s all hang out,” he says. “It’s not that easy.” Kris urges him to make the first move, and Rob agrees to reach out to Khloe. A laugh-out-loud moment comes when Rob calls Khloe on the phone, and Kris creepily grins from the next room as she spies on him. Hilarious.

Rob and Khloe hang out, and Khloe tells him he misses her. It’s so awkward — Rob refuses to talk to her, even though they used to be best friends. Khloe tries to tell Rob that he should be close with them, but Rob reiterates that he doesn’t think his family is accepting of Blac. Khloe says that no matter what, Rob shouldn’t eliminate himself from his family’s lives. Agreed!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rob is treating Khloe unfairly?
