We probably don’t need to tell you that the Kardashian-Jenner clan is not your typical family.
For example, most moms probably wouldn’t be too thrilled with a guy who got their daughter pregnant three times, refused to marry her, cheated on her repeatedly, and is now dating a woman literally half her age.
But for reasons that aren’t entirely clear, Kris Jenner is still a big fan of Scott Disick.
In fact, she’s so tight with former pseudo-son-in-law that Kris and Scott produced a reality show together.
Unfortunately, Sunday night’s season premiere of Flip It Like Disick wasn’t exactly a smash hit.
It’s almost like there’s already 47,000 house-flipping shows on basic cable; TV audiences are pretty much over the Kardashians, and they especially don’t care about Scott now that he’s no longer with Kourtney. Weird.
Anyway, it’s a testament to Kris’ clout at E! that she was able to get execs to bankroll such an obviously ill-fated project.
And it’s a testament to her work ethic that she’s still trying to figure out a way to get it picked up for a second season.
Kris has been in this game a long time, and she likely knew from the start that viewers would be tuning in more to check in on Scott’s personal life than to see if he’ll be able to turn a profit in the real estate game.
And so, her answer to the show’s dismal ratings is to drum up some interest in Scott’s relationship with Sofia Richie.
Scott and Sofia have been dating for almost two years, which is more than a little gross, considering she’s 20 and he’s 36.
Anyway, despite her youth, Disick and Richie are reportedly considering marriage, and apparently, Kris is pushing him to act now, so as to score some free advertising for Flip It.
“Kris is trying to push Scott to propose so that they can capture it on camera, and he is not having any of it,” a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
Yes, its seems that Kris sees this as a “two birds with one stone” situation, but Scott’s not sharing her somewhat cynical perspective:
“He wants to do this under his terms, and everyone is getting really impatient,” says the source.
“Scott loves Sofia, this is obvious, but he refuses to be forced into anything.”
And it seems Disick might be feeling the pressure from more than one source:
“Sofia is getting very impatient,” says a different source.
“She has been trying to remain confident that he will want to marry her, but her hope is starting to dwindle.”
We can understand why Scott would be reluctant to propose, but he has no one but himself to blame for this situation.
There are two old adages that one should always keep in mind:
1. Don’t date a teenager and expect them not to act impulsively, and
2. Don’t launch a business venture with Kris Jenner and not expect to give up your right to any sort of personal privacy.
Words to live by.
