Khloé Kardashian and Scott Disick arrived at a Connecticut pool party Sunday in one piece – but they tell PEOPLE they had a close call only a day before.
The near-disaster unfolded, say the pair, who were there to help host Foxwoods Resort Casino’s Liquid Sundays, on Saturday when they headed out to have some fun on the water – and not for the first time: she recently posted a photo of the two of them in a tub together.
« We actually fell in the bay yesterday, » Disick revealed.
« No, you – not me, » clarified Kardashian, who’s spending the summer on Long Island’s South Fork for the family’s current reality show Kourtney & Khloé Take the Hamptons.
« Sorry, » Scott was forced to concur. « I fell in the bay. We were tubing behind our boat – »
« I don’t do big bodies of water, » said Kardashian, « so I held on for dear life. »
Was it so dangerous that they nearly died? « Kind of! » Kardashian said. Disick agreed, saying, « Close, close. Yeah. »
He added, « We saw the tapes, because we were dying to see them, » she said. The footage looked frightening. « It was really ridiculous, » said Disick.
« I literally was flying way above [the tube], but I would not let go of the handles, » Kardashian described the moment.
On a lighter note, she admitted she hadn’t planned her wardrobe Sunday to fit in with the rest of the bikini-clad partygoers.
« I didn’t realize I was at the pool today, hence my outfit, » she said, referring to a skintight black dress and towering heels. « I’m very dressed up, but let’s go out with a bang. I’m a little overdressed. »
Asked to name her go-to pool party drink, she said, « I don’t know if Champagne is a pool party drink … you feel full. » Still, inside the event, she appeared to be drinking pink Champagne.
Disick, who this summer was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning but has taken steps to seek help, joked that « I’m gonna drink out of the pool. »
In fact, he stuck to bottled water as he hung out near the deejay and chatted with friends as reality show cameras rolled.
