As Keeping Up With The Kardashians has taken us on a tour of the family’s drama. We’ve watched Scott Disick freak out over Younes Bendjima.
This time, however, it’s Kourtney’s turn to do the freaking out on camera. And no, it’s not over Sofia Richie.
Kourtney’s home is infested … with tarantulas. Watch her panic in the video below!
It was supposed to just be a simple scene of Kourtney and Larsa Pippen chatting in Kourtney’s backyard in Calabasas.
They’d chat about stuff and maybe bring up a prearranged topic.
(Honestly, a huge part of the scene’s appeal was that they were both looking great in one-pieces, to no one’s surprise)
To start things off, they laid out some towels to enjoy that Southern Californian weather.
They start talking about their nails, which is … not necessarily the most captivating conversation.
(But, for the record, Larsa is asking if her nail polish is too “stripper”-y, since she usually only goes with white or black but decided that, now that she’s moved to L.A. she wants to try some new things)
Their conversation takes an abrupt turn, however, when the two of them notice — with some possible “help” from a producer or camera operator — that there’s a spider near them.
Specifically, a very large tarantula.
We don’t know what time of day it is, but the shadow from their chairs and bodies nearly reach the tarantula.
So it’s safe to say that this small friend got pretty darn close to the couple.
Who .. squeal and move a short distance away, letting out nervous giggles.
Once calmed, Kourtney talks about her “infestation” problem.
“I just don’t even know what to do,” she laments.
Then, speaking alone with the camera, Kourtney says:
“I swear, we’re, like, outside, like, 50 percent of the time, and I’ve already had the exterminator come out and spray.”
So it doesn’t sound like the tarantulas are going into her house. It sounds like they’re just … minding their own business outdoors.
(Obviously, people seldom want spiders inside of their home, and I get that — I don’t either. But tarantulas aren’t a threat to humans, so why is she spraying her backyard?)
It sounds like Kourtney has a pretty serious case of arachnophobia, because it sounds like she’s obsessing over this.
“I just won’t be able to sleep at night. I just will not feel comfortable until these tarantulas are fully gone.”
While on camera, she calls the exterminator who had apparently already been out there.
The exterminator says that tarantulas are likely more active and therefore more likely to be spotted now because it’s mating season.
That doesn’t exactly seem to calm Kourtney’s nerves. Or Larsa’s.
Larsa says: “I’m going to Beverly Hills. This wild, wild west is not for me!”
Plenty of folks have ethical concerns about exterminating a non-dangerous species that’s also not in your house but just happens to be nearby.
Others worry about the larger environmental impact that can come from spraying poison all over a yard, and what might happen when other species eat the tarantulas that have been poisoned to death.
Not to mention concerns …read more
