The much anticipated reality TV show revealed a lot in its epic return — while also leaving a bunch of juicy details out

'KUWTK' was anything but satisfactory. Sure the episode revealed the usual drama that the infamous family faces every day, but not the answer to a question we've wondered about for a while now.
Yes, Kris Jenner decided that it was not quite time yet to reveal Kylie Jenner's "situation" — only hinting at a person taking unsolicited photos at Kylie's house. As Kris was doing interviews, the camera kept pointing at her as she took a serious call concerning the situation and asked her daughter if she wanted the person arrested.
With yet another week of vaguely hinting at Kylie's privacy and current situation, us fans are left disappointed again — I'd honestly feel a bit guilty about constantly talking about her pregnancy if it wasn't teased every time the show aired promos. However, 'KUWTK' definitely delivered on other fronts this Sunday.
For instance, Blac Chyna finally agreed to sign the family law agreement and hopefully will stop causing trouble for the family. The agreement centered around custody payments and other legal negotiations which have been going on for a while now.
Although no one explicitly said anything about Rob Kardashian's revenge porn incident last year, Kim did briefly mention that he should've "controlled himself" because he had sisters. Honestly, he shouldn't have done it anyways as it was illegal and nonconsensual — but the Kardashians aren't ones for remarks to shake the boat.
Kourtney Kardashian was also a subject of this week's episode — she's finally come to terms with her relationship with 24-year-old former model and boxer, Younes Bendjima. While getting ready for a week-long vacation with her boyfriend, she reflects on how she's ready to introduce her kids to him and how Scott Disick is a "co-parenting partner who's not fully reliable."
And who can forget the main attraction of this episode — Khloe's mime prank. In an effort to cheer Kris up, she hired a mime to be cuffed to her mother for an entire day. Like most of the girls' other pranks, it seemed to have both an amusing and annoying effect.
Kris Jenner then showed up to Khloe's house dressed like a mime — and handcuffed herself to her daughter. It was actually a really happy and uplifting scene for the audience considering all the other things going on in the episode.
However, is there more to come? Next week's episode is mysteriously titled "Bun in the Oven" — which could allude to Khloe's pregnancy, Kim's surrogacy or Kylie's pregnancy confirmation. We'll just have to wait another seven days but hey, at least you'll know you're in for a night of antics and drama.

The ice cream company released a powerful statement this week.
With Black Lives Matter protests popping up left and right, lots of well-known public figures and companies are taking a stand against police brutality.
Celebrities are putting their lives on the line protesting, childrens' toy companies are donating tens of thousands to organizations like the NAACP, and even infamous YouTube stars are hitting the streets. But Ben & Jerry's—yes, the ice cream brand—have made the most detailed statement of all.
"The murder of George Floyd was the result of inhumane police brutality that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy," reads a lengthy statement on the Ben & Jerry's website. "What happened to George Floyd was not the result of a bad apple; it was the predictable consequence of a racist and prejudiced system and culture that has treated Black bodies as the enemy from the beginning."
The statement continues: "Four years ago, we publicly stated our support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Today, we want to be even more clear about the urgent need to take concrete steps to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms."
Ben and Jerry then outlines a four-step plan to end white supremacy. First is calling on President Trump to disavow white supremacy, instead of calling on the military to shoot American protesters. Second is calling on Congress to pass H.R. 40, a bill with instructions to study racism, its deep roots in American history, and how antiquated beliefs are still prevalent today. Third is creating a task force to help increase police accountability, and fourth is a "call on the Department of Justice to reinvigorate its Civil Rights Division as a staunch defender of the rights of Black and Brown people." Trump has never made plans even half that detailed!
It's a little sad that ice cream companies are more adamant about ending centuries of white supremacy than our own government officials even at the state level. Especially when other companies have issued statements that attempt to overshadow their previous racist actions, Ben & Jerry's commitment to justice is admirable. Ben and Jerry are officially the two coolest white boomer men we know, and we will be celebrating by vacuum-inhaling three pints of Chunky Monkey.
