Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap: It’s War, Caitlyn
Period cramps and Caitlyn are the source of all the drama on the new Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Rob is still on his journey to happiness and physical fitness, but he gets derailed on the latter when workout buddy, Season 13 MVP Khloé, gets her period and can’t move due to menstrual cramps. Rob refuses to empathize despite Khloé’s insistence that her monthly plight is incredibly painful and he misses a group workout, claiming to be on his “meriod.” Khloé ain’t havin’ it and, ever resourceful, contacts a chiropractic sports physician to give Rob the physical sensation of menstrual cramps. I can’t wait to see what elaborate scheme she comes up with to get Kim, Kris, and Kylie to stop scratching their psoriasis.
Meanwhile Caitlyn contacts Kim asking to hang out, but Kim is hesitant because of Kris’s negative reaction to the advance copy of Caitlyn’s book. Kim reads the book and similarly objects to the portrayal of Kris as a money hoarder who knew all along about Caitlyn’s desire to transition. She also takes offense to Caitlyn’s assertion that all references to the Kardashian name were removed from the Diane Sawyer interview because research groups associated the name with publicity stunts. Kim blasts Caitlyn for claiming she was the only famous one when the show started, saying, “No one knew who you were for the last few decades.” Actually, Kimberly, the many fans of the cult masterpiece Can’t Stop the Music, yours truly included, knew all too well who Caitlyn was.
Kendall goes to India to shoot for Indian Vogue and meets Prince Manvendra, an openly gay activist who was in an arranged marriage with a woman. She invites Prince Manvendra to talk to her sisters and mother about the difficulty of his coming-out process, including his parents disowning and disinheriting him. Kendall sees parallels between his story and Caitlyn’s, and even Kim, still upset with Caitlyn about the book drama, lauds Caitlyn’s bravery and compares her coming out favorably to Prince Manvendra’s.
Kim can’t, however, keep her frustration with Caitlyn secret from her little sister. She relays her concerns to Kendall, who is immediately upset with her father for disparaging her sisters’ name. She goes to Kris to assure her that while she will always love Caitlyn, she sides with Kris in this matter and feels that Caitlyn is pushing all of her kids away. Kris tells Kendall that she is particularly upset about Caitlyn’s alleged lies being permanently on record in a book that her grandchildren will read someday. Don’t worry, Kris. By the time your grandkids might even remotely be interested in reading Cait’s memoir, it’ll be hard to find in the bargain bin at Barnes and Noble. They might still be able to listen to it for free on Audible, though.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
