Recently, we saw Kourtney vacationing with her kids in Nantucket. As part of their desire to co-parent, Scott Disick even came along so that they could both be with their kids.
That sounds great for the kids, but on top of the work involved in being a parent, spending time at the beach playing nice with your ex doesn’t sound much like a vacation to us.
Well now Kourtney’s gone on a very different vacation — one without Scott or the kids. But she did bring Younes.
Kourtney Kardashian’s been the long-suffering ex during Scott Disick’s ongoing spiral of bad behavior.
Imagine glancing at the news and finding out that your ex was sloppy drunk in a bar asking strangers to suck his dick.
Just hearing that, on a non-famous level, might make someone laugh or smile with smug satisfaction.
(Who really wants to hear that their ex’s life is better without you in it?)
Hearing that as a celebrity, when your ex is also the father of your three children, is another matter entirely.
So while it’s hard to look at the lifestyle and wealth of any members of the Kardashian family and go: “Wow, she really deserves a vacation,” we’d say that Kourtney comes about as close at it comes to needing a break.
(There she is in Nantucket, looking gorgeous but … not really on vacation, you know?)
Normally, the Kardashians vacation at beaches and other coastal communities.
They’re from L.A., folks — Kylie Jenner has shivered while wearing long sleeves before because the temperature was in the low sixties.
(Almost enough to make you believe that they’re illuminati lizard people or whatever … but almost everyone from SoCal is like that)
If the Kardashians went vacationing in snowy mountains (which is so fun), their tiny bodies would freeze.
Kourtney’s pal, producer Simon Huck, knows this.
But he still wanted to take her and Simon Younes some place that Kourtney hadn’t been a million times.
That’s Simon Huck and Kourtney, standing in front of the Spinx.
Now, full disclosure: I love Egypt. I’ve never been there and I can’t imagine going unless it’s the dead of winter.
At some point, I want to be fully versed in Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs — right now I only know a few dozen. Like I said, I love Egypt.
So this is way, way more exciting than most Kardashian vacation spots.
(Like, really, another tropical vacation? Groundbreaking)
Kourtney and Simon have been great friends for ages (you don’t want to go on an international vacation with strangers), so it’s no surprise that they set off when Kourtney needed a real, grown-up break.
And she even brought Younes!
Those two on the camel in front (to our right) — that’s Kourtney and Younes.
Also, those are the Great Pyramids of Giza in the background.
A lot of people snap photos with those wonders of the world in the background, but most don’t get quite such a good shot.
They and some friends (Simon’s a publicist, “Pip” who’s out in front of the camel works for J.P. Morgan — they were a pretty mixed group) took an adventurous tour of Cairo.
Kourtney and Younes also soaked up the sun at the beach (because of course they did) and smoked from a hookah with Emilie and Simon.
You know, Younes might be Kourtney’s boy toy.
And going on vacation with him doesn’t change that, of course.
But … we’re starting to wonder if she might be catching feelings for the guy.
The Kardashians aren’t really known for being great at just using and discarding guys.
They get attached.
Sometimes it seems like they’re prisoners of their own hearts, you know?
So … we’re a little curious to know if Kourtney and Younes are in a real relationship at this point.
Or if Kourtney just brought Younes because she wanted to have fun.
