Kourtney & Khloé Take The Hamptons, the supplemental spinoff to Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is set to premiere this Sunday. The show follows the lives and antics of KUWTK regulars Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, as well as Kourtney’s partner, Scott Disick.
Disick is known as a partying fellow who likes to soak in his wealth, referring to himself as “Lord Disick”, due to to a lordship he purchased while on a trip to England.
But Disick has also seen some dark times over the past year, many of which were lived out before a television audience on KUWTK.
Both of Disick’s parents died within just a few months of each other. He found out that Kourtney is pregnant with their third child. He has a drinking problem that got him an ultimatum from Kourtney and the disdain and disapproval of kinda-in-law Kanye West. And all this happened with cameras rolling and tabloid keyboards clicking away.
Now, in the upcoming premiere episode of the new show, Disick reveals what he has to do to handle the stress of his life, which is now further complicated by being in The Hamptons where his parents used to live.
“I think my anxiety, especially coming to New York, then my parents not being around anymore and her being pregnant, everything feels like it’s coming down on me,” Disick said.”I literally want to jump out of my skin, it’s that bad.”
Disick revealed that he had to start taking medication just to help him sleep “three or four hours a night” after his mother died.
After taking an anxiety pill in one scene, he remarked: “I take it at night just to sleep.”
Khloe is aware of Scott’s medication regimen, and she is not unconcerned.
“I know Scott has always had sleeping problems and always took sleeping pills,” she said. “I understand that he is trying to cope and I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to do. I don’t want to be too judgmental because I don’t want him to not come to me and do something in secrecy, but it is concerning me and I am getting a little worried.”
