It’s pretty much the law that fresh episodes of at least two members of the Kardashian family doing something — anything — appear on TV at all times. Fortunately, Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons premieres this Sunday, November 2, to ease any Kardashian withdrawal you may be suffering since the most recent season of Keeping Up ended.
Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian hit the idyllic beaches of the Hamptons, but as per usual, things aren’t always what they seem. The Stir sat down with the Sisters K to get the lowdown on what to expect from the new season and found out why Kourtney knows she’s never going to get Khloe back in the Hamptons for three months again.

Khloe: Kourtney and I think out of all the seasons, this would be the most raw. By that I mean we always have highs and lows on all of our Takes series, but this one, I think, things would just happen, even off-camera, and we would pick up our iPhones and film things. You see a lot that is really raw and unedited. They’re intense. Kourtney says this is our darkest season yet; I don’t know if it is, but there’s a lot of highs and a lot of lows. Kourtney and Scott have always wanted to spend a summer in the Hamptons with the kids. Scott’s from New York and his parents have a home in the Hamptons. Scott lost his parents about a year ago, and she wanted to go there to handle personal things. I went really as support.
Kourtney: I think the first half of the season, there’s a lot of fighting between Scott and me, and even Khloe. We’re all living together, and we’re family, so there are moments of something is fine one minute and it’s not the next minute.
Khloe: I also think Kourtney had an idea in her head of what this whole summer was going to be and that was definitely not my vision. In the first episode, I go to South Africa for three days and Kourtney could not fathom that I would do such a thing. We just got there and she wanted this whole picturesque thing all summer. I was like, “I’m getting an opportunity to go to South Africa with French [Montana] for free, who would turn this down?” That was my take on it. We have the whole summer to hang out together. So I think we just saw things very differently and that’s okay. There are fun times. There’s a lot of us being silly and goofy, what you see in every season — us just being us. I think people relate to one of us out of the whole craziness of us. Scott has a really hard time and I think those moments are hard to watch, especially for Kourtney while being pregnant and emotional. I think people don’t realize we have to relive those emotions. Even though it might have happened a few months ago, once we see it again or hear social media’s opinions, it makes us get those emotions back in our system, which isn’t good all of the time.
Kourtney: And I’m always pregnant. I set boundaries. The other day Khloe and I were going to go out and we had this whole day planned and I was like, “Everyone — you can come over to my house but I am not getting off the couch. I’m so tired.” Everyone’s great at listening to my boundaries. The Hamptons, I felt, was very relaxing even though it was emotionally draining. Khloe thought it was a little more boring, but to me it was nice, especially being pregnant, just to be able to relax. It was really, truly a vacation summer.
Khloe: And I don’t have a summer to vacation. I am so restless. I have to do things. I need to work out every day. The Hamptons is very relaxed. Everyone’s like, “I’m surprised you didn’t lose weight in the Hamptons because all you could do is work out.” I’m like, “That doesn’t happen!” Everyone is at a farm stand or playing tennis. I’m way too active and I need structure. I can’t just lounge.
Khloe: With filming, it’s not as easy because people don’t realize you need to get city permits or country permits or work visas. It’s a lot more technicality that goes through it. I knew about a week or two weeks before [the South Africa trip]. I’m very accommodating so if they [the production team] said they couldn’t do it, then I would respect that one.
Kourtney: No, I felt with that one, you were like, “I’m going guys.”
Khloe: Normally I’m fine, but it’s not as easy to be spontaneous. When you get to, it’s awesome. In life I like to be more like that. If I could go somewhere even for just the weekend, I think that’s fun.
Kourtney: Well, I can’t travel anymore [being pregnant] so I’m stuck in LA.
Khloe: But what would you want to do if you could?
Kourtney: I always like a good vintage shop in Paris.
Khloe: Oh stop. For Kim’s wedding, we went to Italy, and it was the first time I had ever been there and I was very hungover so I don’t remember a lot of it. We were only there for that one day and I thought, This is so beautiful! I can’t believe we’re only here for a few hours. I would love to go to Italy and really explore.
Kourtney: I would do another Hamptons summer but I know I couldn’t get her to come back. I’d love to go to Dubai. I’ve never been.
Khloe: I love Dubai so I would love that, it’s just going to be really hot.
Kourtney: We could stay inside. Don’t they have indoor skiing?
Khloe: They do — in the Dubai Mall. The Dubai Mall is the biggest mall. I had an appearance once for our clothing line there, and I had two appearances in the same mall within an hour of each other, and we had to take a car to get to the next location. It was totally different groups of people because the mall is huge. You can go indoor skiing; there’s an indoor aquarium all in the same mall.
Khloe: For sure. This mall is ginormous.
