When asked about the split, Kris explained how she still remains close with her daughters ex-boyfriend Scott saying, “Scott is like my son. He came over yesterday. He was on his way over to see the kids. He’s a great dad. They’ve got things to figure out.”
Back in July, Kourtney dumped Scott after photos surfaced of him getting close with his ex-girlfriend on a yacht while on vacation. Although the Kourtney and Scott were not married, they have been in an on-and-off relationship for 9 years and share three young children together.
When asked about Scott’s reported drinking and prescription drug problem, Kris simply replied, “You know what. I don’t see that side, so I don’t want to talk about what I don’t know. I just know that you know, they’ll figure it out.”
She goes on to explain how she isn’t forcing any pressure on her daughter to forgive Scott, however she is hoping for a reconciliation between the two saying, “I don’t tell her things like [you should forgive Scott] because I don’t think that’s my place. But my kids were brought up to be very forgiving people. My wish is that, you know, they work it out and figure it out and we’ll see what happens.”
Kris ended the interview stating, “[Scott’s] a great dad and he loves the kids and he loves Kourtney…I love him.”
The View was on major damage control following the controversy earlier this week.
The show was hit with huge public backlash after co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy Behar commented on Miss Colarado Kelly Johnson, questioning why she was wearing a stethoscope if she was “just” a nurse.
Soon after the show aired, thousands of viewers (including many nurses) criticized the hosts for disrespecting the nursing profession. In addition, Kelly Johnson appeared on Ellen where she talked about the attention she was able to bring to nurses through the pageant, although she chose to forgo talking about The View scandal.
Rightfully, the insensitive and ignorant commentary from Michelle and Joy caused for the show to lose several big sponsors, including Johnson & Johnson and Eggland.
Therefore on Friday, not only did the hosts apologize for their comments, but they also invited a slew of nurses as special guests. The hosts talked to several nurses from NYU College of Nursing about their training, their jobs and the struggles they face as they provide healthcare to others.
I have a feeling this scandal will definitely have Joy and Michelle thinking twice before poking fun at any group that provides a positive service to the public. Although the controversy probably did help bring publicity to The View, which has been a sinking ship for the past few seasons.
