5. Kim Is a Wig Model
KUWTK Season 7, Episode 3
Knowing how difficult Kim is finding her divorce proceedings, Khloé recommends her sister finds a distraction: "You have to do some silly and outrageous and kooky things to take your mind off it." Next stop: the hair shop! (Literally, a warehouse called the Hair Shop.) "Khloé's talk inspired me to have more fun and I'm kind of obsessed with 007," Kim explains, as she stocks up on a collection of bizarre costume wigs. What follows is a series of disguises that confuse and frighten her family members.
"You're weirding me out right now," Rob says when Kim's "Southern belle" character meets him at a bookstore; "I'm really uncomfortable," Scott mutters when Kim's Russian spy character, Natasha, visits the family and terrifies Mason; "You look like mom," Kendall tells Kim when she arrives to a lunch date wearing a cropped dark wig and Alexander McQueen scarf. (To which Kim replies, "I am mom! . . .I'm gonna get you girls a record deal!")
Eventually, the flashbacks to Kim crying about the dissolution of her marriage to Kris Humphries subside as her costume therapy helps her find closure. "Role-playing and putting wigs on just helped me get out of my funk," she reasons, as one of the best ever episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians comes to a close.
