‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ Recap: Kim’s Baby Shower


After a month away, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has returned to TV, and it’s picked up just in time for Kim‘s baby shower.

Sisters Kourtney and Khloe are planning it and although they’re putting a lot of work and thought in to, Kim’s not really into the idea. “I really feel like my pregnancy has gotten a lot of negative attention,” she explains, “so I really just don’t think that I need a baby shower.”

Meanwhile, Kris is still dealing with being uncomfortable with Bruce having a gun in the house. Now, she wants to come up with a plan to get rid of it once and for all … if only she could find where he hides it.

In order to do that, she pretends to be into the gun, so Bruce will show her where it is. “How do I get into the safe to protect myself?” she asks. But Bruce isn’t so easily fooled. “You can’t have the combination until you take a basic gun-safety course.”

Although Kim is against having a baby shower, Kourtney and Khloe continue with their planning … until Kim discovers she has a registry. She heads over to Kourtney’s to confront her and her mother. “Because you love me, respect my wish and I’m not having a baby shower,” she tells them.

Still, they keep on trying to persuade her by showing her the video of Kris’ baby shower. “Ok, I’ll have a baby shower!” she relents.

Khloe’s husband Lamar Odom, who has been making headlines lately, also makes an appearance in this episode, in an odd scene where Kourtney tells him she thinks it’s weird that in the three years he’s been married to Khloe he’s never been to Kourtney and Scott’s house. He then says he doesn’t want to go to Kim’s baby shower because men don’t belong there, and Kourtney reminds him that he went to hers, which he doesn’t remember.

Kris eventually gets her gun license, so Bruce has to show her where he keeps it and give her the code. The moment he leaves the house, Kris and Kylie put the gun in a block of cement so Bruce can no longer use it.

But Kris’ plan is somewhat foiled when Bruce surprises her with a gun of her own! He then goes to get his to compare them, and that’s when they have to tell him what they did. “You can throw the cement block at the bad guy,” says Kris, which Bruce does not find funny in the least. So he just takes the one that he gave Kris … meaning there is still a gun in the house.

It’s finally time for Kim’s baby shower, which is a garden theme and is attended by Kim’s friends, like Kelly Osbourne, and Kanye West‘s family. Then Lamar and Scott show up, but without Kanye, who they were supposed to bring with them as a surprise to Kim. “Why can’t you guys do the one thing we asked?” complains Khloe.

Kanye does eventually show up with some of his family members and seems genuinely happy to be there. “I knew all these people were coming, but it’s like, damn, a lot of family,” he tells Kim.
