    Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: Family Comes First

    Keeping Up With The Kardashians

    Everyone come quick, the Kardashians are back! They're really back!

    On the season seven premiere—that's right, seven already!—Kim Kardashian says it best when she confesses, "After going through a divorce this past year, it just really taught me that family is the most important thing and can really pull you through any situation in life."

    Preach it girl! It's a lesson the family is learning the hard way.

    Starting with Bruce Jenner, who can't seem to get a clue to come out of the man cave and spend some quality time with the fam—especially since Khloé Kardashian Odom is in town from Dallas and Kourtney Kardashian's baby bump is getting bigger by the day!

    But according to Bruce, he's the one who's being ignored. "What does a guy got to do to get a little respect around here?" he says.

    Kris Jenner is the last person to ask because she's all consumed with the paternity rumors surrounding Khloé. "Ever since my book came out, people have been coming out of the woodwork with false accusations…And it kills me that any of my children are hurting because of my past mistakes."

    Only, Khloé isn't hurting enough to want to take a DNA test like Kris asks—not that her wishes will stop Momma Jenner!

    Bruce, blissfully unaware, discovers what Kris is up to when there's a knock on the door from Dr. John Taddie, a DNA specialist. "I really think Kris has gone too far, again," he says. "I mean she's gotta let this thing go."

    But Kris can't seem to move on. Also? She can't stand Bruce spilling chips on their new furniture. "My wife is driving me crazy, first she's mad that I'm not here and then she's mad that I'm here," he says. "Now I can't even sit on my own furniture. No matter what I do, I can't win with Kris."

    Poor Bruce! Luckily he has a standing offer from Khloé to use her house at will. So, with that in mind, he packs up a few things and heads over to chateau Khloé & Lamar Odom for a little R&R. Scott Disick even comes over to keep him company and, as the two drink beer and eat chips, offers some wisdom and tells Bruce to go home and be honest about how he feels. How very wise, Scott!

    When Bruce talks to Kris though, he gets to see a different perspective and one that he previously hadn't considered. "Bruce can complain that we all ignore him but the truth is he is MIA 24/7," Kris says.

    It's just the push Bruce needs to step up his game. He starts by taking Kendall and Kylie Jenner out for dessert sans their cell phones—gasp! He talks to them and they open up about what has been going on in their lives, it's an emotional moment and Bruce admits, "Kris is right, I do need to speak up in this family."

    Good for you, Bruce! Meanwhile, Kim is starting to speak up when she discovers that sissy Kourtney has been taking control of DASH, the clothing store they're supposed to run as a team.

    "Kourtney thinks that she's the president of DASH and that she's the only person that can make decisions for it," Kim says. "And that's just not the case."

    Even though Kourtney is remiss to relinquish control, she eventually listens to her mom's advice to start involving Kim and Khloé in the business decisions. "I always forget how much fun the three of us have when we actually are working together," Kourtney says. "I have so many fun memories of the original DASH store—I hope we continue to have [those]."

    With Kourtney, Kim and Khloé starting to see eye-to-eye, it's the perfect time for the expectant mama to reveal her big news: She and Scott are having a girl! How exciting!

    Grandmomma Kris should be elated, but she can't stop thinking about the DNA issue. To ease her worries, she writes Khloé a letter with her thoughts.

    "I'm still not happy with my Mom and me being ambushed with this whole situation," Khloé says after reading the letter. But, in spite of that, she tells her mother the truth: No DNA test!

    "If Khloé's OK with, you know, this whole situation then I've got to be OK with it to move on and go back to being a good mom," Kris says.

    Awww, like Kim said at the beginning—family can pull you through any situation.

    Tune in to see what the Kardashians are up to next Sunday at 9 p.m./8 p.m. CT only on E!
