Kourtney Kardashian reveals she WON'T be live-tweeting KUWTK

Thursday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians features a heated altercation between Kourtney Kardashian and her sisters.

But the 40-year-old has revealed she won't be watching the drama unfold, opting instead to spend time with her three children, according to a tweet sent by Kourtney on Thursday afternoon. 

'I won’t be live tweeting #KUWTK tonight, as I’m spending time with my kids while they are on spring break,' began the reality TV star.

Kourtney's diatribe continued, 'I realize that a lot of the conversation right now surrounds my work ethic, and I feel like I need to just make one thing clear: raising children is a job as well.' 

'In fact, it’s the hardest and most rewarding job that I have ever had.'

'I don’t judge anyone who chooses a different route, and I hope that everyone can appreciate my choices as well. With love, Kourt'.

It's not the first sign of the eldest Kardashian sibling distancing herself from the show that made her famous.

In a fight between Kourtney and her sister Kim in last week's episode of KUWTK, Kourtney called the show 'torture' and described it as being like she's 'stuck in a f***ing trap'.

Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner has a theory about Kendall Jenner's recent hostility toward her family. 

In a sneak peek at Thursday's episode of KUWTK, the 24-year-old model suggested her big sister's split from the husband of her children, Scott Disick, was to blame.

'I think that situation might have mentally f***ed her,' guessed the reality TV star.

The teaser began with Khloe telling Kendall how she tried to mend things after the sisters had a heated verbal altercation.

'I sent Kourt the nicest text,' she said, before reading aloud from her phone: 'A million percent we need to have a conversation. If not today, it can be any day, but we can’t let this continue and sweep it under the rug like we typically do.'

The Good American founder continued reading: 'You’re someone who I love and respect and I want you to always feel good when you are around me,” she continues reading. “I would like for this to be a conversation where BOTH — in capital letters — sides get to be heard. I don’t want to feel like this is a one-sided relationship. Whatever we can do where the communication improves, I will do that.' 

'Nine hours later, she sent me a video of the private plane she was on,' Khloe revealed to her little sister.

The cause? When Scott Disick, the father of Kourtney's three kids, sons Mason, ten, and Reign, five, and daughter Penelope, seven, entered the room to sit with them, Jenner dug a little deeper

That was when Kendall laid out her own theories about Kourtney.

'I don’t thing she is extremely self-aware,' said the catwalk stunner. 'She can’t sit back and be like, "Alright, I was wrong," or like, "Alright f***, I f***ed up." She can’t do that.'

'I know how this happened. Honestly, I think starting with their breakup,' she said, referring to the couple's 2015 split. 

Despite Scott's clear denial, Kendall continued, 'I’m just saying, I think that situation might have mentally f***ed her. And I don’t think she dealt with it.'

Kourtney does appear to be struggling very hard on this season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

After the 40-year-old got into a physical fight with 39-year-old sister  last week, she was seen crumbling during a teaser for Thursday's new episode.

The ex-partner of Scott Disick broke down in tears during a talk with where Kim sits off to the side looking peeved.

Khloe, seen in a black headband with big hoop earrings and a blue plaid shirt, begins, 'If I don't give you what you want, you blow up and you're like, "Oh, you're stupid" or "You're disloyal."'

Kourtney, who wears a red, white and black plaid shirt, wants examples of this. When did I ever say you're stupid?'

Khloe gets annoyed: 'I don't have the date and the time, but I know for a fact-'

Kourtney interrupts. 'This isn't also gonna get us anywhere,' says Kourtney.

Khloe points out Kourtney is interrupting.

But Kourtney doesn't stop and she looks mad and says they are there to be 'helpful' and won't 'make things better.'

The tone between the two is not positive and does not seem to be constructive.
