Viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians know that Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick have a strange relationship. Not really brothers and not yet brothers-in-law, Rob continues to get disappointed by Scott.
The previous few episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians gave fans a peek at how Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick deal with each other. Rob likes to party with Scott but only to a point.
With Rob hanging around a female dominated family unit that includes three sisters and two half-sisters, he needs some male bonding time and Scott Disick has never turned down an opportunity to bar hop and get into mischief.
The N.Y. trip: When the family was in New York for the grand opening of Scott's restaurant RYU, Rob and Scott spent the night of the family's arrival in town drinking heavily with Disick and his partners in the business.
He was hungover for half of the next day and had not welcomed the family or even his wife and son to N.Y. with an email, text or phone call. Read: Trouble for the Kardashians is a delayed sock line.
Rob exposed his passive-aggressive side as he helped the family hold Scott 100% responsible for the immature behavior, when in truth, Rob had encouraged him to go out and never said one word about greeting the family.
The London trip: Last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians featured yet another scene between the two about Scott's inability to tone himself down. They were in London and got the opportunity to earn a bit of cash by going to a club to make an appearance. Read: Kris and Bruce Jenner at war
Scott among adoring female fans with a few too many cocktails in him made a scene that yet again embarrassed Rob. Disick was screaming profanities and refusing to take photos of Rob with fans as they requested. He was throwing around the title of Lord of the Manor, that he'd paid someone to confer on him.
Rob complained about Scott's over-the-top impropriety after consuming more than a bit of alcohol. It reminded fans of the episode in which Scott was paid to appear at a Sweet Sixteen party and once again embarrassed Rob and himself with inappropriate comments to the birthday girl and friends. Rob complained about that as well.
The Dominican Republic vacation: While on vacation with the whole family in the Dominican Republic, Scott was so bored with being behaved he and Rob tied one on and terrorized the teen sisters Kylie and Kendall. Scott went on to get so intoxicated he once again missed at least half the day with a bad hangover. Read: The vacation that was less than fabulous.
Rob took him to task for being unable to control himself and taking things to the extreme. The same complaint he has each time a social situation turns ugly.
Someone should bring this quote attributed to Albert Einstein to Rob Kardashian's attention :“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.”
