Tensions run high among the Kardashian and Jenner families as they are forced to decide whether to attend the ESPYs in the Season 11 premiere of E!'s hit series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." During the previous season the Kardashian siblings were torn between their support of Caitlyn Jenner and their love for their mother after the former Olympian made some questionable comments about her marriage to Kris Jenner. Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian agree that they must attend the ESPYs to back Caitlyn, 66, and their younger siblings Kendall and Kylie Jenner during episode 1.
In the episode Kim questions whether she and her siblings should go to the ESPY Awards. While Kourtney, 36, agrees that it's in their best interest to go, Khloé, 31, is worried it may make their mother uncomfortable. After much consideration she and her sisters decide to attend and bring it up to Kris, 60. The topic is breached during a face time call. Although they initially feared the Kardashian momager would be uncomfortable with their decision, she is in full support of her children's decision. As the big night gets closer both the Kardashians and Jenners are on high alert. Kim, 35, Kourtney and Khloé decide to get ready together while Kendall, 20, and Kylie, 18, get dressed together at the teen's Calabasas, California, mansion.
The Kardashian sisters are calm, cool and collected whereas the Jenners seem much more tense. A fight erupts over a borrowed brown dress, during which Kendall calls her sister "the biggest b---." During her one-on-one interview, however, she is aware that the fight was caused by nerves rather than actual malice. The big night arrives and goes off without a hitch. The entire family, and Caitlyn, attend a dinner with Kris afterward during which Kris expresses her support for Caitlyn, calling her ESPYs speech "beautiful."
While Caitlyn's first public appearance was the focal point of the "KUWTK" Season 11 premiere, Kourtney's public split from Scott Disick also comes up several times during the episode. The mother of three spends much of the episode trying to get her life back to normal after their separation. Despite her inclination to withdraw from public she decides to participate, spending time with her family. With Khloé by her side she takes a trip to a California winery to get better acquainted with Corey Gamble, her mother's new beau. Numerous members of her family note that she seems happy and is doing the best she can to heal and be there for her children. During the episode Kourtney reveals that she and Scott, 32, are cordial and spend a limited amount of time together for the sake of their children.
"Keepin Up With the Kardashians" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on E!
