Scott and Khloe appear decided for his or her newest prank to be probably the most epic one within the historical past of pranks they’ve pulled on Kris, nevertheless it stays to be seen how far are they prepared to go earlier than they pull the plug on the paparazzi stunt. Within the midseason preview, Kris is heard on the cellphone with Kim saying, “I should have blacked out. I’ve to go to rehab.” Are they actually going to let the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch and momager extraordinaire join rehab?
Figuring out the Kardashians, they’ll do something to maintain individuals watching Preserving Up with the Kardashians to spice up rankings. Though Kardashians are masters at selling their present to maintain followers watching, the one factor they’re savvier at is sustaining their public pictures. Despite the fact that Scott and Khloe have enlisted the assistance of household buddy and publicist, Tracy Nguyen Romulus, for his or her newest prank, there is no such thing as a manner the household’s publicist will let the prank go on so lengthy that Kris really indicators up for rehab.
Additional, the escalation of this prank appears ill-fated with Scott lately making headlines for checking out and in of rehab himself. It was initially reported by E! Information that Scott was in search of remedy for a substance abuse dysfunction. Nonetheless, it was later clarified in a public assertion from his lawyer, Marty Singer, that Scott was in search of remedy for unresolved grief stemming from the sudden lack of each of his dad and mom inside lower than three months of one another between 2013 and 2014.

What is evident is that the Preserving Up with the Kardashians star’s try to hunt skilled assist for his psychological well being has triggered a media frenzy. Had Scott sought remedy for a bodily well being situation, it seemingly wouldn’t have attracted almost as a lot “adverse” consideration from the media. This double normal for well being can also be evidenced by the wrongful remedy he acquired by the Colorado facility. If solely psychological well being was taken as severely as bodily well being, then in search of remedy for psychological well being issues wouldn’t be almost as stigmatized by the media. Maybe the Kardashians ought to suppose twice about joking about going to rehab sooner or later. Hopefully, Scott’s adverse expertise with the Colorado facility hasn’t discouraged him from in search of remedy elsewhere, so he can lastly obtain the assistance he wants and doesn’t need to undergo in social isolation any longer.
