This episode was all about men and women PMS-ing. Namely, Malika, Rob and Jamie!
Malika, Khloe’s longtime assistant and best friend, keeps missing auditions (and a mani-pedi — God forbid) because of her job obligations. She sits down with Khloe and basically says — in so many words — “I need a break from you.” Which sounds like she needs a break from her friendship with Khloe as well as her work relationship. Khloe says that it feels like someone’s punched her in the gut. Kris Jenner calls and doesn’t make matters much better. (Kris didn’t do too well on last week’s episode, either, if you’ll remember.) Kris basically says that Malika probably feels left behind since Khloe is successful and married and Malika is “just” her assistant. Kris has a point, but she just needs to learn how to mince words a little and not be so harsh!
So Malika walks out, leaving Khloe to — God forbid — fend for herself. (What do all of us civilians do without assistants?)
Meanwhile, there’s tension between Rob and Jamie because, according to Dr. Khloe ‘Freud’, they’re both competing for Lamar’s attention and affection. Jamie has a girl over to the house behind Khloe’s back (because not even Rob is allowed to do that) and Rob rats on him. Jamie’s response? Leave cheese in front of Rob’s door, of course! Because that’s mature! Khloe says that Lamar is the hottest guy to date so both Jamie and Rob are competing to be his girlfriend. LOL. Which is kind of true — Rob and Lamar are very affectionate with each other, and Rob gets jealous whenever Jamie comes by and “interrupts” them playing video games. Maybe it’s high time Rob gets a real girlfriend!? If only Khloe would let Rob have girls (“whores”) over — but Jamie does offer him use of his loft, which is half-nice, half-seedy.
The tension between Jamie and Rob comes to a head, and when it does, Jamie pulls the old “I’m from Queens, you’re from Calabasas” line out of his hat and throws it at Rob, who acts like he’s unaffected by the “jealousy” between them (but we know better). Rob and Jamie play a little one on one with Lamar supervising, and it does not go well. Rob keeps fouling Jamie — so much so that he walks out of the game. What a baby!
Through her twin sister Khadijah, Malika lets Khloe know that she needs to talk. So Malika, her sis, and Khloe go to the Lakers game. (Because we all know that’s a great place to talk, right?) Khloe gets up and goes to the bathroom and Malika follows her and spills her guts. She says she’s not happy, blah blah, but she’s sorry she took it out on Khloe, blah blah, and the two hug and make up. Just in time for the episode to almost be over! Isn’t it amazing how that happens? That turmoil on TV only takes a half hour to resolve? Amazing!
And just when the half hour is up, Rob and Jamie play a game of pool and mend their ways, too! We wish everything resolved itself in TV time! Just like The Brady Bunch!
Funny thing is, there’s absolutely no spillover from last week’s episode about Lamar’s sloppiness and Khloe feeling fat — the house looks immaculate and Khloe is as confident as ever! And Khloe and Kris are speaking again! Amazing what can happen in a week.
