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.

Protest music aside, there is a slew of good underground music out today
An invigorating slew of protest music hit the shelves today.
Detroit-based emcee Tee Grizzley collaborated with Queen Naija and the Detroit Youth Choir to craft a melodic ballad that attempts to open up a dialogue with police. Meanwhile, alt-Jazz pioneer Terrace Martin took a different approach in his collaboration with Denzel Curry, Daylyt, G Perico, and Kamasi Washington, with "Pigs Feet" being more of an angry f*ck you than an attempt at communication.
Kylie fans are doing the most this holiday season.
This holiday season, Kylie Jenner fans have been very vocal on social media. The fans of the cosmetic company owner and influencer have been patiently awaiting the announcement of Kylie highly speculated pregnancy with current boyfriend Travis Scott. When Kylie's sister Kim Kardashian began posting daily Christmas cards in the 25 days leading up to Christmas, Kylie fans went wild with speculations.
Many fans suspected that from the lack of Kylie's presence in the Christmas cards, that card twenty-five posted on Christmas, may boast the first glimpse of Kylie's baby bump. All of this buzz made everyone fans or otherwise very invested. Christmas day came and with it big disappointment. First of all, Kim Kardashian-West waited longer than usual to post her Christmas card of the day. Blame it on the excitement of Christmas morning or a smart PR move, but Kardashian-West did not post a photo till almost 5pm PST. Some fans were staying up just to see the Christmas card that could confirm Kylie's pregnancy, but they were let down when Kardashian-West finally posted the photo with no Kylie to be found.

Good Morning to everyone except Kylie Jenner.

Elite Daily joked that Kylie has been doing everything but appearing in the Kardashian Christmas Card photoshoot, but in doing so they brought up a great point. They noted that Kylie's recent interview for LOVE magazine was strategically done by her mother Kris Jenner and her sister Kendall took the photos. They speculate that this was done to avoid any up close and personal questions and undesired baby bump shots. Olivia Harrison from Refinery29 speculates that Jenner is avoiding confirming her pregnancy because of her young age and fearing that it will cause for a gap in relating with her youthful fans. She also speculates that since Kylie hasn't confirmed her relationship with Scott, she'll just announce the pregnancy when she has her baby.
Personally, I'm beginning to wonder if she is pregnant after all. Following TMZ's announcement, no one in her family has confirmed; however, fans are convinced. From the shift in full body mirror selfies to close up face selfies, the change in social media activity is too fishy for her most dedicated fans to ignore, but still no confirmation of the alleged pregnancy. Metro speculates that since we didn't hear via Instagram, Jenner may be saving the big announcement for the return of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on January 7th. Other speculations consider that she may just have her baby and announce the actual birth of her child. I actually think it's wonderful that she's taken a step back from social media in a way and focusing on herself and her pregnancy if she is in fact pregnant. Live your life Kylie!
