TV Watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Kim Kardashian West and Khloé Kardashian paid their respects to the Armenian Genocide Memorial in the country's capital on Friday.
The sisters were joined by Kanye West and cousins Kourtni and Kara on their emotional trip to the memorial site in Yerevan – which is dedicated to the estimated 1.5 million Armenians killed by the Ottoman Turks at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Kardashians, who are of Armenian descent, somberly placed bouquets of red tulips at the Tsitsernakaberd memorial's eternal flame.
The Armenian government is well aware of the furor surrounding Kim and Khloé Kardashian's visit to Armenia – and they know what you're thinking.
However, not only did Kim, Khloé and cousins Kara and Kourtni meet with the Armenian prime minister on Thursday, but other members of the Armenian government have spoken positively about the visit.
"Kim Kardashian is a world-famous woman, and we should be proud to see the world's attention focused on Armenia," said the speaker of the Armenian National Assembly, Galust Sahakyan, as reported by Azatutyun, an Armenian radio station.
Kylie Jenner is one entrepreneurial 17-year-old. With a fashion line, a line of hair extensions and even an upcoming mobile game with sister Kendall, she's about as enterprising and independent as a teenager can be.
Still, she is a teenager – and what mom says, goes.
In a sneak peek at the upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, matriarch Kris bemoans the lack of quality time she's been able to spend with her youngest daughter and asks that she join her on a road trip so that they can "have a little bonding moment."
She met with the prime minister on Thursday. But Kim Kardashian West is also making plenty of time for sightseeing in Armenia – her ancestral homeland – with husband Kanye West and daughter North.
In her latest Instagram photo, the reality star is seen in what looks like one of the country's ancient Christian churches – possibly a chapel inside Geghard Monastery, a medieval site in the Kotayk province that the family was photographed visiting on Thursday.
Did Khloé Kardashian's best friend get in the middle of her relationship with French Montana?
French certainly thinks that's the case.
In a sneak peek at this week's Keeping Up with the Kardashians, things get a little awkward for Khloé and French when they find themselves in the same place at the same time. When he goes to sit by her, Khloé stops him, telling him that her BFF, Malika Haqq, doesn't want French sitting at their table.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, Kim Kardashian West and sister Khloé met with the Armenian Prime Minister on Thursday.
Also in attendance were Kara and Kourtni, cousins on their late father's side.
"Hovik Abrahamyan hailed the fact that members of the Kardashian family never forgot their roots and added that their visit would make [Armenia] better recognizable," reported the Public Radio of Armenia of the event.
Not long after touching down in Armenia, the Kardashian sisters (minus Kourtney) are taking the country by storm.
Kim and Khloé Kardashian took several photos with family and friends (including Kim's stylist, Jen Atkin) in front of the Mother Armenia statue in Yerevan on Thursday.
"The Mother Armenia statue symbolizes peace through strength," wrote Khloé, 30, in the caption of an Instagram photo commemorating the occasion.
The Kardashians have taken Manhattan and the Hamptons – and now they're taking Armenia!
