Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson work with ‘surrogate agent’

Khloé Kardashian continued to investigate the surrogacy process as she prepared to have another baby with Tristan Thompson on Thursday’s episode of KUWTK.

The 36-year-old mother of True, three, already had made embryos but was told by doctors that she was too ‘high-risk’ to carry a pregnancy to term.

Finding someone who met her qualifications was tough, Khloé lamented, even though she was working with a ‘surrogate agent’ to find someone who would be a good fit for her family.

Looking through the applicants’ portfolios, she rejected some for minor things, like the music they liked, worried that it might indicate a specific lifestyle.

‘I am just convinced that who you are when you’re pregnant really plays a role, the energy that you’re passing on to a baby,’ she told Kim.

Kim, 40, had two children with a surrogate and told her sister not to worry about things like that.

She’d only ever spoken to her second surrogate on the phone, and Kanye didn’t meet her until she delivered their baby.

‘Just on paper?’ Khloé said, shocked. ‘Shut up!’

‘The first time, we had the first surrogate over for dinner with her kids,’ Kim remembered. ‘The second one, I was like, ”Sure.”

‘You got a uterus, here—take my kid,’ Khloé joked.

Khloe and True’s father, Tristan Thompson, 30, arranged an interview with a surrogacy therapist named Adam, calling him over Zoom from Kris Jenner’s home in Palm Springs.

He asked them what they were looking for, and wondered how they’d feel if the surrogate became pregnant with multiples, and wanted to reduce the number.

‘It’s your baby but it’s her body, so she could terminate the pregnancy with any unplanned outcome,’ Adam said, shocking the pair.

‘I’m definitely getting freaked out as the questions go by,’ Khloé said, nervous to give up control over the outcome.

‘This is a big eye-opener,’ she told Adam, saying she was ‘second-guessing things.’

She talked to Kris, 65, about it that November, as her mom parsed her 2020 election ballot.

‘Did you know that Kanye Omari West is on the official ballot as vice-president?’ Kris marveled.

‘I think Kim said that was not accurate, because he’s not someone’s vice-president,’ Khloé replied.

She filled her in on what she’d been finding out about surrogacy, and Kris asked, ‘So what’s the next step?’

‘Crying,’ Khloé said. ‘It’s way more overwhelming than I thought this process was.’ 

Tristan urged her to try and trust the process and said that it would all be ‘magic’ in the end.

While in Palm Springs, they called True at home and watched her brush her teeth, ruminating about the need to give her another sibling.

Too much: 'It's way more overwhelming than I thought this process was,' Khloe admitted to Kris

‘I do think this is the right choice for us,’ Khloé affirmed. ‘But I’m not gonna force it.’

She added in a confessional, ‘If I find someone in the next year, I’m okay with that.’ 

Kim and Khloe also finally unearthed the identity of the writer behind Nori’s Black Book during the season 20 episode titled Season Of Change.

The hilarious parody Instagram account imitated the voice of Kim’s seven-year-old daughter North West, and was so good they were sure it was someone in their circle.

To their surprise, it was written by a total stranger named Natalie Franklin, who they tracked down and flew in from her hometown to find out how she’d done it.

‘She made up this personality, and luckily, that’s who North’s personality is,’ Kim marveled.

The hilarious entries found ‘Nori’ making fun of Kim with quotes like, ‘Happy Mother’s Day Mommy. I’m proud of you and the millions of products you launch every day.’

‘Nori’ also joked about injuring herself at dad Kanye West’s Sunday Service, but being insured for $75 million, and poked fun at her aunt Kourtney Kardashian, 42, for ‘not working.’

She also described coaching her sister Chicago, three, to smile more in pics.

‘I asked Ms. Personality what needs to be done for her to finally serve face?’ that entry read, making Kim suspicious that the ‘spot-on’ imitation was written by someone who knew them.

She guessed that her pals Jen Atkin, Stephanie Shepherd, or cousin Cici Bussey were behind it, but all of them denied it.

Kim’s friend Tracy Romulus, 41, suggested they send the culprit a KKW Beauty press box to find out her address, which is how they located Natalie.

After she was tested for COVID-19, the bubbly writer met the Kardashians for lunch. She couldn’t believe her eyes at first, asking them, ‘Are you real?’

Kim and Khloé peppered her with questions about how she started it all, and how she knew so much about someone she’d never met.

‘I just guessed,’ Natalie admitted, recalling that she’d started it after seeing North in a Babies ‘R’ Us commercial when she was an infant, with her face blurred out.

‘I’m on the phone and I’m like, ”God, North would be so f***Ing pi**ed, can you imagine you’re North West and you’re wearing Babies ‘R’ Us? The nerve!’,” Natalie said. ‘A light bulb went off.’

She’d called it Nori’s Black Book because Kim and Kanye were only wearing black at the time, Natalie said, adding that she built Nori’s voice off their personalities.

‘It’s kind of like, ”If you think Kanye has ego, if you think Kim is a little direct, meet North West”,’ she told the sisters.

Natalie even made fun of the way she imagined North would pronounce her brother Psalm’s name, as Sam, and the nickname had been adopted by the Kardashians’ circle.

She also joked on the page that no one recognized Khloé’s pal Khadija Haqq McCray, 38, instead calling her by her twin Malika’s name—so she referred to them both as ‘the Malikas.’

Kim and Khloé were impressed by how smart and creative Natalie was, and she thanked them for the experience of being there.

Kim FaceTimed North and introduced her to Natalie, but the girl was too busy eating ice cream to say more than a dismissive ‘hi.’

‘Do you care?’ Kim asked her daughter, trying to get her to say, ‘Nice to meet you.’

‘Hates all of us,’ Khloé cracked. ‘You got her personality down perfectly.’ 

Elsewhere on the show, Scott Disick, 37, spoke to Kim and Khloé about wrapping up KUWTK, which they’d been shooting for 16 years.

‘I’m just curious if now stopping, we’re going to float apart a little,’ he worried, recalling how the structure of his life changed when they stopped filming during the COVID-19 quarantine.

‘When I started seeing it being a horrible time, it took a lot on me,’ Scott said in a confessional. ‘And before you knew it, I was in a rehab center because I was thinking about too many things in my past, and I felt like I was gonna go out of control without the same structure.’

Kim suggested they arrange biweekly family dinners, which Scott hoped would be weekly.

He suddenly felt the need to connect with each sister individually to assuage his fears that he’d be abandoned when the show ended.

He worked out with Khloé, helped Kim study law, and eventually talked to Kourtney.

‘I know that we are Scott’s only family and he feels insecure about not being able to spend time with the whole family now that the show’s ending,’ she said in a confessional. ‘I want to make sure he knows that we will all be in each other’s lives.’

To cheer Scott up, the Kardashians visited him at home with a gift of remote-control boats.

After they zoomed them around his pool, he asked what was really going on, and they admitted they were concerned.

‘We feel like maybe you miss us,’ Khloé said, and Kim added, ‘Or you’re gonna miss us.’

‘I feel like for so many years we had to be together,’ Scott shared. ‘When it ends, what’s it gonna be like?’

Kris reminded him how close they all lived to each other and said she’d always be his mom.

‘You just show up,’ she promised. ‘I’ll make you lunch, breakfast, dinner, brownies.’

‘I really do value this family I’m in more than anything else in the world,’ Scott told the cameras.

‘Scott, we’re family,’ Kim emphasized. ‘We’re always going to be together.’

In a confessional, she told him, ‘I need you to know, when this is all over, you’re still our brother. Us filming doesn’t connect us. We’ve been connected way before.’

Keeping Up With The Kardashians will return next week on the E! network.
