The most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians included drama about the annual Kardashian-Jenner Christmas party. The episode, which aired June 9, focused on Kim Kardashian taking the reins on the event instead of the usual host, momager Kris Jenner, as Us Weekly reports.
"It's turned into such a s**t show," Kim told Khloé Kardashian and their grandmother, MJ. Kim said that the event had deteriorated over the years and the guest list was beginning to include people they didn't even know.
Kim decided to host the annual party at the Kardashian-West residence and immediately came across obstacles. Namely, Caitlyn Jenner asked to be invited. Kim told Scott Disick and cousin Cici Bussey, "Last night, Caitlyn called. … Caitlyn wants to totally go to the Christmas Eve party."
In a testimonial interview, Kim explained that Caitlyn had not been invited to the Christmas party since she published her 2017 book, The Secrets of My Life, which led to a falling out with Kris. Kim eventually said that Kris gave her permission to invite Caitlyn, but things still didn't go smoothly from there.
After Kim invited Caitlyn, Khloé said it was a mistake. Kim said she was just trying to make peace with Caitlyn, but her sister responded by saying, "Do we care about Caitlyn’s peace when she’s never cared about ours?" Khloé then prompted Kim to disinvite Caitlyn, but Kris insisted that she remain invited and said, "I promise you. I’m fine. Just let it go. Vodka’s my friend."
After the invite list got sorted, there was more drama, but this time between Kim and her husband, Kanye West. The budget Kim created did not align with the artistic vision Kanye had for the evening, which led to KKW calling her husband to speak with him about his extravagant plans. "This is so inappropriate," she said to him. "This is so much money for a party for one night. … Finances stress me out more than anything in life. First of all, we can’t put snow in the street, from the city. … We do not need an ice-skating rink."
The party ended up being amazing in the end, compete with a snow-covered hill for sledding and an all-white, Dr. Seuss-styled aesthetic. Friends like Sia, Jennifer Lopez, Kathy Griffin, John Legend and Paris Hilton all made appearances. Even Jordyn Woods, who came to the party with Kylie Jenner, was all smiles, just weeks before the Feb. 2019 cheating scandal with Tristan Thompson.
