Kim and Kourtney Kardashian prove that sibling rivalry is real


by Jennifer McShane
11th Nov 2019

Wealthy, famous and beautiful they may be, it’s hard to imagine each of the Kardashian sisters being immune to the endless Internet debate over who wore it better. They are public figures by choice and as a result, everyone has a ‘favourite’ Kardashian. Some are in the limelight more; Kim has gone out of her way to break the internet on multiple occasions and is extremely savvy when it comes to her public image.

Whereas Kourtney, for example, is known more for her sarcasm, wit (she’s a source of much-needed humour on KUWTK) and low-key business ventures.  She has her moments, albeit not as frequently as Kim. So, one could see her annoyance when Kim steps in to steal one of those moments.

Kris Jenner and her daughters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian all went to the People’s Choice Awards. Kim was in a Versace corseted dress, Khloé was in a sheer LaQuan Smith dress, Kris was in Alexander McQueen, and Kourtney was in a Naeem Kham suit.

It all seemed par for the course until things got pretty awkward when they did an E! interview with Giuliana Rancic, who asked what designer each woman was wearing.

Kourtney started to explain, and then Kim interrupted her during the live interview.

“I didn’t plan this. Naeem Khan, is that how you say it?” Kourtney started.

“Everyone is wearing KKW Diamonds,” Kim cut in. “We’re all wearing that.”

Then to Kourtney, she said, “I was saving you because you don’t know who you were wearing. That was my save.”

“No, I just didn’t know how to pronounce it,” Kourtney rebutted.

“Oh,” Kim said.

You could literally cut the tension with a knife, and the resulting footage is quite something:

The interaction isn’t out of the ordinary (sisters, even world-famous sisters will throw daggers to each other very occasionally), but this certainly isn’t the first time Kim has stepped on Kourtney’s toes.

Frankly, the roasts never seem to stop between Kim and Kourtney.

In one episode of KUWTK, Kim, Kourtney and Scott Disick talk about the reaction to Kim calling Kourtney the “least interesting to look at” out of all of her sisters. “People hate Kim from her comment on the show.”

In an attempt to clear her name, Kim explains that she wasn’t criticising Kourtney’s looks but her personality, which is when she tells her sister that she’s the “most boring.”

“We got into a fight. I said, ‘You’re the least exciting to look at,’” Kim says. “What I meant is you’re the most boring – as if that somehow makes it all better.

What we wouldn’t give to be a fly on the wall.
