Kourtney Kardashian: Penelope and North Are Already Becoming Besties

Not all of the Kardashian clan is currently mired in drama: The Kardashian cousins are already becoming besties!

“Whenever [Penelope] sees [North] — the second she walks into the room, Penelope gets so excited,” Kourtney Kardashian tells PEOPLE at the Los Angeles premiere of Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway on Sunday. “We never really had cousins that were close in age.”

But while Penelope, 14 months, is “just in awe” of Kim Kardashian‘s daughter with Kanye West, Kourtney’s 3½-year-old son Mason is still adjusting.

“He gets a little jealous because he and Kim were so close. He doesn’t understand because he’s not the big center of attention,” Kourtney said. “I don’t think [Kim] knows what to do; she’s just like, ‘You don’t like me anymore?’ She feels like he … is getting older and changing, and I think she gets confused and doesn’t know how to handle it.  He’s like, ‘Why don’t you like me anymore?’ ’cause he sees her with the baby.”

In hopes of alleviating the situation, Kourtney confesses she’s been lathering on the attention for her oldest child.

“I give him so much attention, and he gets so much attention from everyone else that I’m like I don’t even know,” she said.

Cooper on

Time for Mason to get a haircut no?

Just Me on

Like I’m like I don’t even know like why doesn’t Kim get her head out of her giant axx and she’s like I don’t know so we both don’t know like so yeah.

Ashley on

Cooper: Yes. With a capital Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tieraney on

I wonder if the rumors are true that Kourtney is pregnant again?

Me on

Just Me – thx – I needed a good laugh 🙂 u were right on the money! (like, u know? whatever… 😉 )

Kandy on

Cooper – yes! Cut the kid’s hair already.

Ana on

has anyone tried to count how often this family says “LIKE”? Go back to school!

Sandra on

That’s par for the course for kids to go through what Mason is. Don’t worry, he’ll get distracted with someone or something else and adjust like normal. Cute kids though, long hair and all.

Shelley on

Cooper, YES! Mason looks like a girl. His daddy Scott is always so manicured and this kid always has his hair in his face.

Jill on

It’s stunning this is an”article”. Kourtney can barely string a sentence together. Pathetic these people capture the attention of the American people.

Katy on

Do they come with their own dictionary? I’m totally confused. Need a translator.

jsp81355 on

Next thing we know the babies will have their own clothing line and their own reality show. And a 14 month old and 3 month old are now “besties”? Spare me.

betty on

There are no words to express how sorry I feel for these young children.

Deb on

oh please exactly how old is the latest kid of this weird family

Tami on

Seriously did that article even make any sense at all?

Maerilyn on

I thought Kourtney was the one that went to college. The girl really needs to learn how to express herself if she’s going to give interviews.

Monica on

Monica says Shame on you you shameless people hating on innocent children

weedo on

weedo on

why is she dressing mason in pink. get his hair cut. yes mason you are a little boy……………….

Ashlee on

That picture really makes Mason look like a little girl. Definitely time for a haircut.

Neen on

Whenever I see a picture of Mason I think he looks like Mogli from the Jungle Book…

seycas on

Oh, gee I’m like I like babies, but I’m like my son thinks this whole family I’m like SUCKS!!!

mom23 on

Why do people always feel the need to tell a parent they should cut a boys’ hair if it is long???? Why do you care? They obviously like it that way….

Betty on

Cooper cut your own kids hair let others do there own thing.

kelly on

Oooooooooh please how can a 14 mos old connect to a 3 mos old?..any baby is going to laugh at another one, and what about masons hair, he looks like a girl, and as far as attention, what about scott giving mason some..seems like mason is a ma ma boy..

Shoshanna on

Just Me – LOL!

Hugh on

Was this article meant to mock Kourtney or something? I don’t even know what she’s trying to say.

Noneya on

Why cut his hair?!? Nobody ever tells Brad Pitt to cut his greasy hair!!! It’s her kid anyway!!

Heidi on

Like, excellent grammar Kortney LOL

Kortney what you need to tell Mason is that Kim’s heart grew when she had North, so that she could love North and also still love Mason just as much as she always has. There are a ton of books that address this too, so he can see that this is normal and can feel reassured.

JE on

Yes cut his hair and get him some clothes that are not pink, he looks like a girl. Come on Kardashian’s fine if you want to dress all weird but he is a boy, dress him like it. Hope Kourtney is not pregnant again we really don’t need anymore of this family in the world.

diadore on

These girls, in their 30s, still talk like valley girls. Scary.

JE on

Yes cut this BOY’S hair. Also get this BOY some clothes that look like a BOY( not pink). Hope Kourtney is not pregnant again all this world needs is more of this family running around.

Terrimillward on

Really that’s mason,that hair is long I totally thought that was a another girl with that long hair 😦 sooooo heck ya,needs a hair cut

sally on

of course they are…what else is she suppose to say? They don’t get along? Geesh the one is a few months old!

Dawn on

I agree Cooper, YES, Mason needs a haircut.

Chodegurl on

Hint to Kardashians: Taking the word “like” out of your vocabulary will probably increase your IQ by 20 points. I think you all should challenge yourself to not sound like a 13 year old…may be complicated for you though.


Scott is Jewish guessing he asked Kourtney to uphold the Jewish tradition of waiting until age 3 to cut a son’s hair…Mason has passed that milestone & it is time to cut his hair he looks like a homely little girl!

okiesus on

Cooper – YES!!! and he needs to wear boy clothes.

Sandra on

“She’s just like”
“I’m like, I don’t even know”
Isn’t she university educated? The whole family is stupid

rik317 on

Can these Kardashians speak one sentence that doesn’t include the word “like”? Work on your grammar!

Snoopy on

Are they going to call that baby North West the rest of her life? How many people get called by their full name all the time? Except maybe Lavon Hayes?

Anonymous on

Kim’s baby is not cute at all!!!!!!!!!!!!

loni on

Cooper,yes,yes,yes.Mason has needed a haircut for years.he’s a mess.

Me on

Aww cute story

kbrit on

Too funny Just Me!

JH on

My cousin and I are just under a year apart and grew up besties. I’m happy for Penelope and North to have that built-in friend, growing up under the microscope that their parents have chosen to live under.

Linda on

Get over it, Kim. Get over it, Mason.

cassandrita on

like im like i dont even know….wth the kardashian really need to learn how to talk!

sandy on

Wow! North is walking already? A-maz-ing!!

Abbie Parker on

They should……….

Hannah on

No, don’t cut his hair! Most little boys can’t rock the long locks, but he can. What a cutie!

Anonymous on

I can’t even understand them when they speak! They make no sense and they all sound exactly alike. Here are a few of their favorites….”like, I just feel like, Bible.”

They are truly morons who are making a ton of money for being moronic…yet we all watch. It’s a train wreck.

Bee on

Kourtney sounds so annoying. Baby North is a cutie!!


Why does Kourtney, the College Graduate with the annoying tone of voice, always looks dirty??? I will never forget when Scott & Kloe were in Miami, and Kourtney was pregnant and she reeked of body odor, and her excuse was that she did not use deodorant cause she was pregnant. Yikes.

This is such a f… up family, the 3 girls have chosen people who are not their own race or creed. Kloe, the poor thing, told the world that she rather go to the ”Dark Side” and look what it cost her? Her marriage. Nothing worse than a person who never had anything and all of a sudden becomes a millionaire, and don’t t know what to do with his money. I like Lamar, I really thought that if anyone was going to make it, it would be those 2. How sad.

Mary on

I agree. Mason has been long overdue for a hair cut. Scott needs to take him to the barber shop. I love all of them so much!!

gimme a break on

Really? They talk and go shopping together? Real slow news day.

New Orleans on

Why do ALL of the Kardashian sisters, and their brother, say the word “like” after every third word in a sentenance? But then again, why does their mother use the “F” word and “MF” words on TV in front of her children? HMMMM? So SAD! for all of them. Ratings are dropping, “LIKE” soon! Yeah!
