Where Was It Shot?: Keeping Up With The Kardashians

On April 18, 2016, the First Family of the world landed their ample assets down on our small island of ice. In fur koats, nude bodysuits, and a whole lot of Givenchy, the women generously allowed the Icelandic wind to touch their shiny hair, the Icelandic water to hydrate their flawless skin, and the Icelandic people to watch them, uh, do stuff.

 Yup, we’re talking about the kontentious Kardashians, who, on season 12 episode 10 of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ spent a lively weekend in Reykjavík for Kourtney’s birthday. While the whole klan wasn’t present, Kim was here, and who really kares about the others?

 A significant portion of the episode occurred at the Blue Lagoon where the krew lazily swam and drank booze with white mud on their faces. In an iconic move, Kim spent her whole geothermal jaunt defiantly holding her iPhone 7 Plus over the water, taking selfies. Fittingly, her Instagram posts from the day were super sexy. She also snapchatted the scale in the dressing room to reveal she was only 4 lbs away from her pre-baby weight—a momentous occasion for Iceland.

 Other than that, the girls did the usual tourist activities—Golden Circle, glaciers, Friðheimur, etc. As with all episodes of KUWTK though, there was some major drama. This plot revolved around Kim angsting over how to balance time with Kourtney for her birthday and Kanye who was supposedly shooting a music video here. Be a good wife or a good sister? It’s a tale as old as time.

 While we at the Grapevine pride ourselves on being kool with the kids, there was actually a kontroversial debate at the office on whether or not we would kover the Kardashians’ trip. Obviously, the kosmopolitan side won, and photographer Kart (silent K) Bicnick stalked Kim for a while as she ate a Bæjarins Beztu hot dog surrounded by adoring Icelandic fans.
