Fans call out Kourtney for slamming production over 'Scott story line' on 'The Kardashians'
While Kourtney claimed the focus should be on her 'fairy tale' romance, fans felt she did nothing about it, despite being an executive producer
If there is one thing that reality TV stars can all agree to, it is that the real villain is editing. Regardless of what is said and done, people often fall back on the fact that series are edited to make them look back. And turns out, 'The Kardashians' are no different.
One of the running storylines and one that seems never-ending on the Hulu series is the whole Kourtney-Travis Scott drama. While Travis and Kourtney have been broken up for years now, everyone seems to be concerned about how he feels when it comes to anything and everything surrounding her new relationship. But Kourtney seems to believe that the main culprit here is, and you guessed it, editing.
As Kourtney sat down with Stephanie Shepherd, the two discussed filming over lunch. While Kourtney enjoyed filming with Scott seeing that they had a good time together, she wasn't too thrilled about the edit she was getting on the show. She explained that as the executive producer, she got to see cuts of the show and give notes, to make sure that their stories are being told. Kourtney was upset with the whole engagement party drama, seeing that the focus was shifted to Scott, on what was meant to be a very special night for her. She spoke about how she is in a very good place in her life and the show needed to catch up instead of focusing on the past. She argued that the whole conversation with her sisters wasn't even a part of the night and was a fleeting conversation at best, however, in the episode, it was blown out of proportion.
She went on to claim that the scene was "enabling this old narrative and buying into something that just doesn't really exist." Kourtney added that the episode should have been an "empowering" one about her. It should be "getting out of toxic relationships and really having this fairytale love story", which is her "reality". She went on to talk about how things between her and Scott are not as bad as it's being made out to seem and that they have been broken up for 7 years -- and she is allowed to make new memories. For those of you wondering, Kris, Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie do in fact serve as executive producers on the show, while Fulwell 73 and Kardashian Jenner Productions are the production companies behind the Hulu series.
Despite this whole conversation, it looks like the internet wasn't entirely convinced. Fans on Reddit found it odd that Kourtney complained about the way she was being portrayed and yet, little to nothing was done to change that. "This is interesting kourtney calling out production on the Scott story line" asked a fan, to which another replied -- "Well if they approve the cuts—then who said keep that in? Ha"
Fans on Twitter were off the same opinion as well. "Kourtney moaning about shows editing when she has a say about what goes in and making out like it's worst thing in world cause she wants a fairytale lol she's showing her true colours #dramaqueen #Kardashians" Said a fan. "Kourtney I promise you aren’t the editors chosen one for getting a bad edit we just haven’t seen Khloe’s love drama yet but we all already know it’s there before even watching the season #Kardashians" tweeted another. "Kourtney will never not complain #Kardashians" said a fan.
