Just when you though Kourtney Kardashian will never forgive her husband Scott Disick and that the couple will never get back together, reports have come out that the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" stars have decided to reunite.
We all know that Kourtney and Scott's marriage came to a breaking point after The Lord was caught engaging in hot PDA with his ex-girlfriend Chloe Bartoli. While everyone was sure that the Kardashian sister would never take her husband back, it has come out that she has decided to reconcile for the sake of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" ratings.
According to Hollywood Life, Kourtney decided to do so not because she thinks Scott will clean up his act, but because she knows that their relationship drama plays a key role in adding up to the show's ratings.
"Scott is one of the key players on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians". He helps bring in the ratings, which means more money for him, the network, and the Kardashians. But either way, he already signed a deal with E! before the cheating scandal, so they have to contractually pay him anyway," a source said.
The website also pointed out episodes where the Kourtney-Scott relationship drama brought in huge ratings. "Their reality contracts have escalators in them, meaning if she meets certain ratings numbers, she will get more money," a source said.
And apparently, the highest-rated episode of Season 9 was the one where Scott flipped out on Kourtney when she revealed she was pregnant with their third child. And in 2010, one of Scott's alcohol-fuelled episodes drew in almost 2.5 million viewers, the report said.
Now, to shoot these episodes, the two of them will have to talk to each other. "Scott and Kourtney will have to film scenes together and talk about their problems. They'll talk more on the show than they talk in real life," an insider said.
It looks like the ratings of "Keeping up With The Kardashians" will decide the fate of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's marriage.
