Tiger Queens! Kourtney and Kim Kardashian Pose in the Same Vintage Roberto Cavalli Gown

The aggressive argument stemmed from tensions that have been simmering since last season over Kourtney’s boundaries when it comes to filming the reality show. The fight escalated after Kim expressed her frustration with her sister’s work ethic — or, in her opinion, lack thereof.

“It was pretty intense,” Kim admitted during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show. “I feel like it’s been a lot of built-up resentment from Kourtney, or just feeling like she doesn’t really want to film anymore.”

While Kim said that she and Kourtney are “fine now,” they did have to take a break from filming after the fight. “We shut down production for a week after that,” she said. “I think everyone was really shook for a minute and just was like, ‘This isn’t our type of show. We want everyone to be comfortable and safe.”

Young Doctors and Nurses Feel Like 'Soldiers Going Into Battle' Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

By De Elizabeth

Tiana Woolridge was only 6 or 7 years old when she knew she wanted to be a doctor. Two decades later, she is finishing up her fourth year at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine. When she enters the medical field as a pediatrician in a few months, she’ll be doing so in the midst of a pandemic.

Like many other students currently navigating academics amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Woolridge is completing her final year of medical school via online courses, with no IRL commencement ceremony on the horizon. “Any graduation is huge,” she tells MTV News. “But medical school graduation is so big. For a lot of people, this has been a goal for their entire lives.”

Despite grieving a chapter of her life that looks a lot different than she once imagined it, Woolridge is feeling resolved. While she is not graduating early and immediately entering the medical force like some of her peers, the 27-year-old is ready to do her part. “We went into medicine because we want to help people,” she says. “We want to prevent suffering. We want to help explain the confusing, scary, and anxiety-provoking things, and be a sense of comfort for people in an uncertain time.”

On The Frontlines… Without The Tools They Need

As the number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. continues to increase, so does the strain on the healthcare industry. Hospitals are becoming overloaded due to the spreading outbreak, with a dire need for more personal protective equipment (PPE) in order to keep medical professionals safe — and all of this is projected to get worse. According to data from University of Washington Medicine’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, as of March 30, the U.S. is predicted to need 220,643 hospital beds, which would create a shortage of 54,046 beds, and experts believe that the country’s healthcare providers will need more than 26,000 new ventilators to save lives.

And it’s not just equipment: there’s an acute need for more healthcare workers in general. To keep up with the growing demand, some healthcare professionals are finding themselves reassigned to treat COVID-19 patients, regardless of their area of expertise.

That’s exactly what happened to Billie*, a registered nurse working in a neurology unit at a South Carolina hospital. Prior to the outbreak, the 31-year-old took care of patients who were dealing with side effects of a stroke, cardiac illness, or neurological disorders. But all of that changed in March, when her entire floor became dedicated to treating people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 — a task that soon became more challenging when she realized that her hospital was not properly equipped with protective gear, and that nurses were being given contradictory information about which type of masks were needed.

At one point, Billie and her fellow nurses were reusing N95 masks, and cleaning them between shifts, when ideally, such masks are only meant for one-time usage. “But now, [hospital officials] are telling us, ‘You only need to use surgical face masks,’” she says, noting that surgical masks are not as effective against respiratory droplets or airborne particles — both of which are possible ways that COVID-19 could be transmitted. “We’re having to go into different patient’s rooms. Let’s say one patient is coronavirus positive, and the other one is negative. You’re going to both rooms with the same face mask on — and you’ll be wearing the same face mask for four hours. Before all this happened, you could be fired for wearing the wrong protective equipment to a patient’s room.”

In addition to the possibility of physical consequences, the lack of protection is beginning to take a mental and emotional toll for Billie. “I don’t have a history of anxiety, but there’s a little bit of chest pain towards the end of the shift,” she says. “In that moment where you’re seeing patients whom you know are COVID-positive, and they’re coughing and breathing in the room, you wonder: ‘Oh my gosh, am I getting the disease? Am I having trouble breathing, or is that just anxiety?’”

Their Own Lives Are At Risk, Every Day

Even with proper protective gear, medical professionals are still concerned about contracting COVID-19, as over 100 doctors and nurses around the world have already died from the novel coronavirus. Luis Seija, a first-year resident at Mount Sinai Hospital practicing internal medicine and pediatrics, began working with coronavirus patients in mid-March — around the time that New York City began to see an influx in cases. He tells MTV News that N95 masks were soon in high demand at the hospital, so he started making attempts to supply his own. “I have three key hooks right next to my front door,” he says of his New York apartment. “Two of them have keys, and one of them has an N95 mask.”

Seija took a two-week hiatus from working to self-isolate, and is using that time to advocate for his colleagues on the front lines. “I’m doing a lot of outreach and a lot of different projects to make sure that we have enough of what we need,” the 28-year-old says. But as the date of his return to work approaches, his concerns are increasing. He says he wasn’t worried about contracting COVID-19 before he left for his hiatus, but says his ritual deep breath before entering the hospital doors has been getting longer and longer each day since March. “I am scared to go back.”

Chika Lota, a nurse practitioner in Chicago, shares similar concerns. She describes her facility as the “first stop” for patients who think they might have COVID-19; from there, some might be sent home to self-isolate, and others are directed to the emergency room for further interventions if needed. “We do our part with hand hygiene and following the guidelines for putting our masks on properly,” Lota says of her team’s PPE protocol. “But at the end of the day, I have patients coughing in my face when I’m taking a sample. You just never know. So I do worry.”

But Lota worries even more about the many healthcare professionals across the country who are less protected than she is. “It’s really frustrating to hear about people who are doing a service and they’re passing away because they may not have adequate equipment. That breaks my heart.” She adds that some of her patients have expressed similar concerns.

“I had a patient the other day who broke down in tears,” Lota recalls. “She was afraid to even come in, because she didn’t want to impact us. I don’t think patients should worry about that on top of being sick.”

Despite their fears, both Lota and Seija are committed to doing everything they can to help fight the pandemic. “There’s an inherent advocacy that comes with being a physician and this situation has really brought that out,” Seija explains.

But some healthcare workers also feel that the myriad issues being exposed by the current crisis are more than what they signed up for. “It’s really disgusting, honestly,” Billie says of the preparatory failures that led to such a widespread crisis. She adds that nurses at her hospital are disproportionately under-equipped compared to doctors, despite having just as much, if not more interaction with the patients. “We feel like we’re commodities, not actual human beings at this moment.”

The Next In Line Are Also Afraid… 

With all the headlines about under-equipped hospital staff, many medical students are feeling fearful as they get ready to enter the workforce. Jamie Ho, a sixth-year medical student at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., tells MTV News that she “feels like a soldier going into battle.” The 23-year-old intends to practice cardiology or neurology, and she feels nervous about possibly joining the frontlines of the pandemic, especially when PPE is not a guarantee.

“Healthcare workers should be adequately protected and supported by the management team and government,” she says. “They should have enough PPE, and the focus of guidelines should be towards optimum protection rather than resource management. Infection of healthcare workers would deplete the workforce and is a risk for transmission to vulnerable patients and other colleagues.”

Joanna Watterson, a third-year medical student at New York University studying to practice emergency medicine, feels similarly. “I’m afraid for my country and my city and all its people,” she tells MTV News. “I’m saddened about the lives that we will lose, and frustrated that some of those could have been prevented if we had been more prepared. I worry about the fallout from this trauma that healthcare workers are all experiencing right now. … We see death as medical students, but not like this. Not to this scale. It’s tragic.”

Because Watterson isn’t slated to graduate until next year, she isn’t able to volunteer to enter the workforce early, like many of her fourth-year classmates. But if she could, she would. “Ultimately most of us went to medical school to help people,” she says. “It’s hard to watch this all happen, to know we have some skills and knowledge, and be totally unable to help.”

… And They’re Coming Together In Powerful Ways

In response to not being on the frontlines themselves, med students have volunteered to help healthcare workers with daily tasks in order to take some of the burden off of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals. Raven Batshon, a fourth-year medical student at Detroit’s Wayne State University, has felt empowered by seeing the medical student community supporting healthcare workers in whatever ways they can. “We’re not allowed in the hospital right now because there’s not enough protective gear,” Batshon, who plans to practice family medicine, says. “So we’ve found other ways to get involved, whether it’s through phone triage or babysitting for some of the physicians, dropping off groceries, walking dogs, creating PPE — the list goes on and on. It’s been really beautiful to see everyone come together and find creative ways to support the community that we’ve been trying to serve for the last four years.”

Even so, this is still a frightening time for everyone — the general public, students, and healthcare workers alike. Woolridge notes that the pandemic has been a lesson in handling uncertainty, especially given that there are so many unknowns: What will happen? How will this affect me? Will I get sick? Will my loved ones get sick? Woolridge says she’s been coping with her own anxiety by practicing mindfulness meditation, journaling, and turning to her faith.

“There’s been a lot of emotions,” Woolridge says. “A lot of fear, frustration, anger — all of those things. And the best way to combat a lot of that is just by kind of focusing on the present moment and just taking one step at a time, one day at a time, rather than trying to plan out exactly what’s happening in the future.”

For Batshon, a sense of optimism and belief in the goodness of others is seeing her through the uncertainty and the darkness. “This will pass,” she emphasizes. “We’re going to be a different world on the other side of it. But we’re all going to be in it together. If we continue to have this love and support that people are showing over and over, we’ll be able to overcome whatever lies on the other side.”

Tori Roloff: Jackson's Big Brother Transition 'Hasn't Been Terrible'

A new role! Zach Roloff and Tori Roloff’s 2-year-old son, Jackson, has mixed feelings about becoming a big brother.

“We can definitely see moments and glimpses of him not wanting us to talk to [our 4-month-old daughter], Lilah,” Tori, 28, tells Us Weekly exclusively. “He wants us to talk to him, but I think overall he’s a pretty easygoing kid. The transition hasn’t been terrible.”

Her husband, 29, agrees, opening up about how “helpful” their eldest has been since Lilah’s November 2019 birth.

“Jackson’s all about order,” Zach explains. “He’s Mr. Professional, so Lilah has her thing and he has his, and those things don’t cross. But if she’s crying, he’ll go find a binky or a burp cloth.”

The Little People, Big World stars are doing “great” quarantining with their family of four amid the coronavirus pandemic even though their kids are “in different seasons of life.”

“Lilah’s a bit more chill and is not moving yet, but Jackson is go, go, go all the time,” Zach tells  Us, which is why he and his wife “divide” their time. “I usually take Jackson and then Tori will hang out with Lilah, or vice versa. We just divide and conquer.”

The reality stars, who wed in July 2015 in Oregon, think that parenting is much “more relaxing the second time around.”

Tori tells Us, “With every kids, you have to take it in stride and figure out what each kid is doing. I think that things worked out pretty well with Jackson, so we were like, ‘Let’s try to do that again.’”


A post shared by Zach Roloff (@zroloff07) on

When it comes to adding babies to their brood, the TLC personalities are both on board. “We say we’re built for this,” Zach gushes. “We love it. It’s all part of the game, the fun, waking up at two in the morning. … It’s strengthened [our] relationship.”

The youth soccer coach considers Tori to be a “great mom,” telling Us, “I love watching her with the kids. I think she just has that sense.”

Little People, Big World airs on TLC on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

Supermoon: Brian Cox’s brilliant stargazing guide for amateur astronomers revealed

Tonight, Britons are in for a treat when the “brightest pink Moon of 2020” will appear, making the lunar body much larger than usual at around 3:30am. But, with less pollution in the air and fewer planes in the sky, there has never been a better time to become an amateur astronomer and explore the whole of the cosmos. This hobby is nothing new, it follows traditions that go back to the birth of humanity, and cultures around the world have celebrated, investigated and built monuments in hope of understanding how the universe works.

Professor Brian Cox previously revealed two of his favourite constellations in the night’s sky that can be seen with the naked eye.

He told The Sun in 2011: “If you’re out of a city it helps a lot – the glow from street lights obscures all but the brightest of the sky’s treasures.

“But even so, some are so spectacular that you will see them from anywhere.

“Orion is the easiest of the star patterns to spot and is filled with fascinating objects.

If you’re out of a city it helps a lot

Brian Cox

“The bright star at the top left is called Betelgeuse, If you look carefully, you will see that it’s a red star. 

“This is because Betelgeuse is a red giant – a star at the end of its life, rapidly running out of nuclear fuel.”

Professor Cox explained why this star will one day shine as bright as the Sun before revealing the other wonders of the Orion constellation.

He added: ”Betelgeuse is so enormous that if you placed it in our solar system where the Sun sits, every planet out to the orbit of Jupiter would be inside it.

“It is also likely to explode very soon – by which I mean in a few thousand years, although it could be tomorrow – and when this happens it will shine so brightly that for a few spectacular weeks we will have a second sun in our sky.

“If you’re away from the city or have a pair of binoculars handy, then Orion has something else to offer.

“Look at the stars hanging below his belt – these are known as Orion’s Sword.”

But, Professor Cox had a second phenomenon that he recommended trying to spot.

He continued: “My favourite of all the wonders of the winter sky is the Andromeda Galaxy.

“It’s quite faint but easily visible with binoculars or the naked eye on a dark night.

“If you want to fire your imagination with the romance of astronomy, have a go at finding it.

Why ‘Trillion tonne rock hurtling towards Earth’ was ‘bad news’ [EXPLAINED]

“It appears as a misty cloud between the constellations of Cassiopeia and Pegasus, yet it is far more distant than all the stars you can see in the sky.”

The British physicist even speculated on what might be going on millions of light-years away.

He added: “Andromeda is an entire galaxy containing hundreds of billions of stars, 2.5million light-years from Earth.

“That means that if you were to travel at the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second, it would take 2.5million years to reach it.

“Imagine how many stars and planets there are in that misty patch of light.

“There must surely be life in that stellar island, even space-faring civilisations far more advanced than our own.

“Yet because of the vast distances that separate us, we will never meet anyone from Andromeda. 

“We can only gaze up at its light and dream.”

NHS medic tells of her horror at shifting 40 coronavirus bodies

‘We’re overwhelmed with deaths’: NHS medic tells of her horror at shifting 40 infectious coronavirus bodies from full-up morgue to fridges in hospital car park… and her distress of spotting patients she KNEW

  • Sally Goodright was working at West Middlesex University Hospital in London
  • She says staff there are ‘so overwhelmed with deaths that they can’t cope’
  • Joined with five other employees at the hospital to move bodies into fridges
  • Tells how upset she was to see the names of patients she regularly treated

A NHS worker has told of her horror at loading 40 bodies of coronavirus victims into fridges in a hospital car park because the mortuary is full.

Sally Goodright said staff at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, West London, are ‘so overwhelmed with deaths that they can’t cope’.

She joined forces with five other employees at the hospital to move the bodies and said how upset she was to see the names of patients she regularly treated.

Sally Goodright said on Facebook yesterday that staff at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, West London, are ‘so overwhelmed with deaths that they can’t cope’

Ms Goodright, whose normal role within the NHS is as a podiatry assistant in nearby Richmond, also urged people to stay at home and criticised those she saw on her journey home who were setting up badminton nets and playing football.

She wrote on Favebook yesterday: ‘After the morning delivering urgent care to diabetic patients I was asked to join a team to help out the staff in the mortuary.

‘The staff are so overwhelmed with deaths that they can’t cope. Two large fridges have been placed in the car park because the mortuary is full.

‘So along with two podiatric surgeons, a podiatric professor, two audiologists and myself we were asked to ferry 40 bodies from the morgue to the fridges.

Ms Goodright is working at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, West London

‘The fridges are situated the other side of the hospital so we had to work in pairs to get the heavy, bulky trolleys across.’

Ms Goodright added that all of the dead were still infectious so they needed to wear full personal protective equipment (PPE) for hours despite it being ‘hot and sweaty’.

She said: ‘It all got particularly upsetting when I saw names of patients I treat on a regular basis and names of peoples loved ones that I was unaware had died. We ran out of body bags but still the dead were arriving from the wards. 

‘Everyone is doing such a fantastic job and really working as a team from surgeons, porters, cleaners and the brilliant crew that are making sure the fridges are in situ and in full working order.’

In a Facebook post, Ms Goodright also urged people to stay at home and criticised those she saw on her journey home who were setting up badminton nets and playing football

But she added that she was also left upset by seeing families setting up equipment for circuit training on Twickenham Green.

Ms Goodright also said that on her way home she saw families in Radnor Gardens setting up badminton nets and others playing football.

She said: ‘What part of ‘stay at home – save lives’ do these people not understand? This really isn’t essential exercise. Pop on a Joe Wicks workout and stay indoors.

‘Us in the NHS are tired and I get that staying in is grim but it’s so very important. Please, please stay at home. I want to go back to my old life.

‘I miss my patients who don’t need urgent care but have to stay indoors. I miss visiting my housebound patients that need routine care as we’re only delivering urgent care for the foreseeable. Do the right thing!’

Khloe Kardashian Says She May Never Date Again After Tristan Thompson Split

Single and not ready to mingle.

In this clip from Thursday’s all-new Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris Jenner grills daughter Khloe Kardashian about her love life. As E! readers surely know, the Revenge Body host has been single since splitting from her daughter’s father, Tristan Thompson, in February 2019.

“Are you dating anybody?” the famed momager inquires.

“No, not even thinking about it,” the Good American mogul responds.

In fact, as Khloe notes herself, she hasn’t even been on a date since the split. This news thoroughly shocks the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, who whispers “Stop!” at Khloe’s confession.

“I have friends that are like, ‘I want to hook you up with someone.’ I just don’t care,” True Thompson‘s mom adds. “I’m focused on myself and True and that’s just what I do.”

Even though Kris seems disheartened by this update, Khloe declares she may “never date again.”

“Khloe has definitely been through a rough year and, the fact that she says she doesn’t want to date again is a little sad for me,” Kris notes in a confessional. “Because, I want her to live her best life and hope that she’ll have another baby one day.”

Furthermore, Kris defends it’s good to put yourself out there in order “to figure out what you want and what’s meant to be.” Although Khloe makes it clear that she currently has no interest in romance or having another baby, her mother encourages her to freeze her eggs.

“If I want to I will one day, I just don’t care to,” the mother of one expresses.

“You need frozen eggs,” Kris shares once more.

This pressure from Kris only irritates Khloe, who feels she’s doing just fine on her own.

“I just find it so strange that people find it such a negative when somebody wants to be single. Trust me, if I wanted to date, I would date,” Khloe reflects to the KUWTK camera. “I want to invest my energy in my daughter, in my self-healing. And I think that should be really empowering and should be more rewarded rather than frowned upon…I’m actually f–king fantastic.”

Watch this conversation play out in the clip above.

Tiger King SHOCKER: Joe Exotic’s Husband Sides With Carole Baskin!

Tiger King is unique from many reality shows and documentary series, in that it filmed for several years before a single episode aired.

Actually, Tiger King is unique from other documentary series in just about every way, but let’s stick with this one difference for now.

The unusual production schedule means, or course, that as events from several years ago unfold on their TV screens, the principal players might be just as stunned as the rest of us.

It also means that characters who were only involved in the later episodes — such as Joe Exotic’s current husband, Dillon Passage — may be learning about Joe’s bonkers past for the very first time.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re sure Dillon knew the basics of Joe’s feud with Carole Baskin, but he’d probably only ever gotten Joe’s side of the story.

These days, Passage is making the media rounds and discussing America’s newfound obsession with his husband.

On the topic of “that b–ch Carole,” you might think that Dillon would simply reiterate views previously expressed by his husband — but you would be wrong.

Somewhat surprisingly, Dillon is not taking advantage of his moment in the spotlight to shout “Carole Baskin fed her husband to Tigers!” from the rooftoops.

Instead, he takes a much more nuanced view of the situation — and he admits hat some of Joe Exotic’s behavior was unforgivable.

Dillon was interviewed on Andy Cohen’s podcast this week and he made a startling admission:

“I feel the only person Joe has really done wrong was the situation with Carole,” Passage said at one point.

Given Joe’s strong anti-Carole stance, the statement came as a shock to many listeners, but Passage tempered it by stating that he believes Joe was “being equally tormented by her” during the years of their feud.

He also claimed that Carole engaged in much of the animal abuse and neglect of which she accused Joe:

“I’ve never seen an animal being abused on the park,” Passage told Cohen.

“Carole’s doing the exact same thing. She’s very pro-animal rights and not having tigers locked up, but her tiger cages look like chicken wire in my opinion.” 

Of course, Dillon didn’t enter Joe’s life until 2018, and it’s unclear if he’s ever even met Carole.

So he’s probably just engaging in the same activity as everyone else right now:

Sitting around and trying to cope with his quarantine boredom by obsessively re-watching Tiger King and forming hot-take opinions.

Speaking of the series, we received some all-too-rare good news this week, as it was revealed that a new episode of Tiger King will be released on Netflix in the very near future.

Passage says he will most likely not appear in the new installment.

But fans of the series will get what they’ve been craving — more details on the never-ending feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin.

Flashback: Van Halen Cover the Who's 'Won't Get Fooled Again' in 1993

Sammy Hagar and the Circle haven’t officially postponed their upcoming summer tour with Whitensake and Night Ranger yet, but right now it’s hard to imagine major concerts taking place as soon as July. Nobody knows how this is going to play out, but it’s quite possible that the entire 2020 concert season will get pushed back to next year.

Hagar and his bandmates Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson are quarantining at their homes just like the rest of us, but earlier this week, they teamed up to perform the Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” thanks to the magic of the internet.

They’ve never tackled the song in concert, but Hagar and Anthony did play it a handful of times in Van Halen. They also played “My Generation” at a few gigs in 1988 on the OU812 tour. Eddie and Alex Van Halen were huge fans of the Who growing up and they even learned to play Live at Leeds and Tommy straight through while in their pre–Van Halen band Mammoth.

Here’s video of Van Halen playing “Won’t Get Fooled Again” at 5150 Studios in 1993. As you can see, Eddie puts his own spin on the guitar intro, and the song is a great showcase for Michael Anthony’s background vocals and Hagar’s powerful voice. This was near the peak of the alt-rock revolution, but Van Halen were still getting their videos into heavy rotation on MTV and packing arenas around the globe.

As the Nineties went on, however, the band slowly collapsed. Their 1996 LP Balance generated a radio hit with “Can’t Stop Lovin’ You,” but Hagar left the band shortly after the tour wrapped. This marked the start of a chaotic period where David Lee Roth came back to record two songs for a compilation record and Extreme frontman Gary Cherone joined for a single album.

Popular on Rolling Stone

Roth rejoined the group in 2007 for a tour and they even managed to cut a new album, A Different Kind of Truth, in 2012. But the band has been totally AWOL since the end of their 2015 summer tour. Before the coronavirus shut down the entire concert industry, Roth was playing Van Halen classics at his new Las Vegas show and at arena gigs with Kiss. Hagar and Anthony, meanwhile, play a set heavy on Van Hagar–era songs with the Circle.

The only members of the band who haven’t been playing the music out on the road in recent years are the ones with the last name of Van Halen. Wolfgang Van Halen has been working on a solo album for about as long as it took Guns N’ Roses to make Chinese Democracy, while Eddie and Alex are living completely private lives. Unsourced reports surface every once in a while about the state of Eddie’s health or a mega stadium tour with Roth, Anthony, and Hagar, but they’re just rumors and nobody really knows what’s actually happening.

Most fans have stopped even trying to guess what the future holds for Van Halen. To quote a song they all seem to love, they’ve been fooled before trying to predict the future and they won’t get fooled again.

Tyra Banks Reveals She Gained 25 Pounds Since Her 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover: 'My Hobby Is Food'

As per usual, Tyra Banks is keeping it real when it comes to her body image.

In a new episode of Harper’s Bazaar‘s Food Diaries YouTube series, the 46-year-old supermodel lists everything she eats on a normal day and reveals that she is 25 pounds heavier than she was when she graced the cover of Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit in May 2019.

“I have a very interesting relationship with food. I have to say that it is one of the most important things in my life,” the former America’s Next Top Model host says in clip, posted Friday, April 3. “A lot of my personal life, and the things that I like to do and my hobby is food: finding new restaurants, doing a challenge where I can’t go to the same restaurant again for six months, finding food festivals. I love a supper club. It is a true, very important thing to me.”

Banks wanted to recreate her iconic polka dot bikini moment, but was open and honest about how much weight she’d gained since the 1997 photoshoot.

“We couldn’t find the exact one in the archives — it was the polka dot bikini so we recreated that bikini,” she said at the time. “I recreated it [the shoot] — 25 pounds heavier.”

Throughout the course of her modeling career, Banks has been one of the leading body image activists in the fashion industry, having started the conversation about unrealistic standards in the industry over a decade ago.

“I’m happy that the fashion industry is finally catching up,” the star previously told PEOPLE. “What I’m hoping for is that the Ashley Graham‘s, the Gigi Hadid’s, everyone is just models. Not plus, not short, not trans, not curvy. I just want it to be normal.”

Kylie and Kris Jenner Mock One of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's Fights In TikTok Video

In case you haven’t heard, Kylie Jenner is now on TikTok. She joined the popular video-sharing app in late 2019 and has since uploaded more than two dozen posts.

Her content mostly centers around her family, so it was only a matter of time before something from Keeping Up with the Kardashians appeared on her account. Most recently, she took to the platform along with Kris Jenner and reenacted an iconic moment involving Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.

Kylie and Kris Jenner’s TikTok video about Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

On Monday, April 6, she posted a video where she reenacted the iconic “ABCDEFG” bit between Kardashian and Disick. She played her sister while Kris took on Scott’s role.

The clip begins with Kris mouthing the words to a soundbite of Disick asking, “So, are we cool? Like, are we in agreement?”

“ABCDEFG… I have to go,’ Jenner replied as Kardashian while sliding on a pair of sunglasses with pearl accents.

“What the heck does ‘ABCDEFG’ mean?!” Kris lip synced to which Jenner mouthed: “It’s just a phrase I like to use that means the conversation is over.”

The real clip of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick’s argument

The clip is from an earlier season of the show when Kardashian and Disick were still together. They had been at home when an argument broke out over Kardashian’s attempts to discuss interior design in the wee hours of the night. Disick felt that it was way too late to talk about work, but Kardashian said there was no better time since Disick stays up late.

After a brief back-and-forth, the Poosh founder tried to end the argument with the “ABCDEFG” line. But it left Disick perplexed and asking her for clarity about what that meant. The scene ended when Kardashian got up and left the room.

After a nine-year relationship and three kids, Kardashian broke up with Disick in 2015 when he was allegedly seen partying with a group of women, including an ex-girlfriend. Each of them has since moved on, but they remain in each other’s lives due to their children.

Kourtney Kardashian has stepped back from ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’

Kardashian stepped back from the show in 2019 amid rising tensions with her sisters.

In recent seasons, Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West had major issues with Kourt’s work ethic, complaining that she did not share enough of her life on camera thus forcing them to pick up the slack. Things became so heated that she and Kim got into a physical altercation that aired on March 26 and April 2.

As the second episode played out, Kardashian told fans on Twitter that she considers parenthood a job and that it’s really the reason she decided to leave the show.

“I’ve decided to put my focus on my kids and my lifestyle brand, Poosh, which is all about finding YOUR healthy balance for living your best life,” she said in one tweet.

Hopefully, she’ll continue to make appearances on the show so we can have more iconic moments like that “ABCDEFG” bit.
