OK, this video is pretty interesting — for the love of Scott Disick, take it with a grain of salt! Some of you will be appalled by Scott’s reaction, but if you can suspend any negative opinions about the Kardashian reality-TV shows, you’ll get a kick out of the conversation. They really don’t hold anything back, those Kardashians.
So here’s Kourtney Kardashian asking her boyfriend (the father of her two kids), Scott Disick, what he thinks of her being a surrogate mother for her sister Khloe, in last night’s episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami:Confession: My kids were up late last night, so I haven’t watched the episode yet. But, before the above conversation takes place, Khloe apparently admits, after months of speculation and hinting, that she and her husband, Lamar Odom, are having trouble conceiving. “I don’t ovulate,” she says, “and now my uterus lining isn’t think enough, and I have to take pills to make my uterus lining thicker.”
Kourtney and her sisters are often very generous and open with each other (particularly when it comes to their bodies). So it’s no surprise that Kourtney would consider carrying Khloe’s child. Will Scott ever be into it, though? Or have things finally gotten, as he says, too “weird” for him…. (Update: Just watched the episode, and yes! He gets into it. Love!)
Indeed, surrogacy is no shenanigan, and this is no joke. Unless she’s a really good actress, Kourtney’s frustration with Scott’s reaction to her desire simply to have the conversation is plainly evident.
As I’ve said before, the Kardashian shows and spin-offs are good! In their own (OK, often over-sexualized) way, they’ve dealt with pregnancy, pregnancy weight, infertility (tons on that), breastfeeding (body odour, safe products, pumping, breastfeeding in the backseat of the car, and more), and now surrogacy. It’s hard to hate on a show as parent-friendly as this….
What do you think? TOUGH question: Would you consider being a surrogate mother for your sister?
