The 39-year-old tour manager had called the model, 24, after getting caught in the middle of a fight between her and sister Kylie Jenner, 23, on last week’s episode.
After a family weekend in Palm Springs, Kendall had asked Kylie to give her a ride to her Beverly Hills home—and when Kylie refused, they brawled, with Corey getting involved.
Tough call: Kendall Jenner got an earful from her mother’s boyfriend Corey Gamble who called her a ‘rude person’ on Thursday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Corey and Kendall finally spoke over the phone and she was expecting an apology after he cursed at her, but Corey instead got fed up with her.
‘Let me tell you one thing,’ he blurted. ‘Kendall, you’ve been a rude person for years, man. You’re an a**hole when you feel like it. You get riled up for no reason.’
‘What did you call me now?’ Kendall spat.
‘No, no, no, no, I’m about to tell you the truth about how you are,’ Corey continued. ‘You don’t apologize for nothing. You get into one thing, now you got something to run and harp on… yeah, you trippin.’

Heated conversation: Kendall wanted to talk about the incident in Palm Springs, but Corey got fed up and told her, ‘You’re an a**hole when you feel like it. You get riled up for no reason’
‘Just because I don’t kiss your a** doesn’t mean I’m an a**hole,’ Kendall retorted. ‘It just means I don’t f*** with you.’
‘Kiss my a**?’ Corey asked, infuriated. ‘I don’t need nobody kissing my a**. What the hell are you talking about?’
Kendall told Corey he had acted like ‘a f***ing bystander’ who let ‘this whole thing happen!’
No apology: The model never received an apology from Corey for cursing at her
‘I was just trying to make sure you were straight, man,’ Corey moaned. ‘That was it. You don’t even know what you’re talking about.’
As the season 19 episode started, Kendall and Kylie’s older sisters worried about the two of them.
Kim Kardashian, 39, noted that Kendall struggled with anxiety that might have caused her to be extra-upset about the fight, as she’d been left shaking.

‘I don’t think she’s had that kind of adrenaline since she’s been an adult, and that’s tough,’ Kim said.
Khloé Kardashian, 36, said Kendall felt alone and was disappointed that no one else had reached out to her.
Kris Jenner, 64, spoke to Kylie at the Kylie Cosmetics offices, and heard her side of things.

‘I think that she thinks she’s right in the situation and I think I’m right in the situation,’ Kylie sighed, admitting that she had been in ‘party/happy mode’ that evening.
She told Kris that there had been a miscommunication between her and Kendall, and ‘the whole night just got blown out of control.’
Kris cautioned her about talking out of turn when she was drunk.
Both right: ‘I think that she thinks she’s right in the situation and I think I’m right in the situation,’ Kylie sighed to her mother Kris Jenner about their fight
‘I love my sister,’ Kylie affirmed. ‘I think we’ll figure it out just like we always do. It was just an unfortunate situation.’
Kris told her what she told all her daughters in such instances: They needed to talk it out.
Corey tried to get Kris’ mind off things and took her to Karina Smirnoff’s dance studio to learn the tango.

Their teachers were Dancing With The Stars vets Artem Chigvintsev, 38, and Cheryl Burke, 36, and Corey gave them a giant disco ball similar to the show’s Mirrorball Trophy.
It had gotten a dent when it felt out of the car as they evaded the paparazzi, he said.
As the dance lesson started, Corey got a call from Kendall and received permission from Kris to speak with her.

Corey asked her to come to a Los Angeles Lakers game with him, saying he had ‘the best seats.’
Kendall said she had plans, but wanted to talk about his role in the Palm Springs fight.
‘I’m definitely not cool with how everything went down,’ she emphasized. ‘I feel like you were the adult in the situation and you handled it very badly.’
Not cool: ‘I’m definitely not cool with how everything went down,’ Kendall emphasized on the phone as Corey reacted. ‘I feel like you were the adult in the situation and you handled it very badly’
‘I understand,’ Corey returned. ‘But that was you and Kylie doing that…’
‘You wanted me out of the car,’ Kendall went on, recalling how she’d eventually had to get out of the vehicle and was not able to head home that night. ‘You guys were yelling at me.’
‘Kendall, y’all was goin’ on for five minutes before I even opened my mouth,’ Corey said. ‘You had already called her names, and you had already…’
Kendall said she hadn’t called anyone names, adding, ‘I just know what you were trying to do!’
False charge: Kendall said she hadn’t called anyone names, adding, ‘I just know what you were trying to do!’
‘No, no, no, you thought,’ Corey said. ‘You was in your mind, like you always are!’
He reminded her that no one was against her, to which she said, ‘You said ”F*** you” to my face. You can’t even say, ”I’m sorry.”
In a confessional, Kendall said Corey was trying to deflect and stay on good terms with Kris.
‘I just don’t know how to feel about that,’ she said. ‘It doesn’t make me feel nice.’

Corey let Kendall have it then, and before the two of them hung up, she offered one last shot.
‘The way it was handled was really just wrong,’ said Kendall, who never received the apology she sought from Corey.
Kris stood with the dancing pros, waiting for Corey to get off the phone.
‘I feel really bad for Kendall, and I feel bad that she’s so upset,’ she observed. ‘But also, I don’t like being put in the middle between my girls and Corey. It just feels really uncomfortable.’
Really uncomfortable: ‘I feel really bad for Kendall, and I feel bad that she’s so upset,’ Kris observed. ‘But also, I don’t like being put in the middle between my girls and Corey. It just feels really uncomfortable’
Corey felt badly for Kris, too, and let the matter drop so she could show him their dance.
Not long afterward, Kendall was home getting ready for a cover shoot for Architectural Digest.
She recounted her conversation with Corey to a visiting Khloé, but admitted, ‘Corey’s just one side of the equation.’

In private, she explained that she hadn’t heard from Kylie in a week, calling it ‘another slap in the face.’
‘There’s been multiple times in the past couple days that I’ve thought about calling her and just being the bigger person, but I kind of want her to grow up and realize that what happened was wrong, and that I do deserve that phone call,’ Kendall said.
‘I have a big ego too, but it’s not to the level where I wouldn’t be able to put it aside to do what was right in the situation,’ she told Khloé.
Checking in: Khloe listened as Kendall recounted her conversation with Corey
Khloé had spent the rest of her week throwing a ‘babymoon’ for her pregnant best friend Malika Haqq, 37, who was ‘about to pop’ any day.
She took the mom-to-be to the Morongo Casino outside Palm Springs, where they were joined by Malika’s twin Khadijah Haqq-McCray, 37, and three other friends.
Rapper O.T. Genasis, 33, the father of Malika’s baby, was not in the picture, but the two of them had decided to co-parent.

Malika and her pals gabbed about ‘mom-stincts,’ with Khloé relating how her daughter True, two, once stuck a pomegranate seed up her nose, and Khloé fished it out with a fingernail.
She said that she’d done IVF in her twenties, but she was glad she’d waited until her thirties to have a baby.
The gang drove around the back of the casino to protect Khloé’s identity, and arrived in their luxurious hotel room, where the girls planned to play games and relax.

Malika had other ideas, insisting they get dressed up and go gamble.
‘If this is me stepping into mom life, can we do it cute for the last time?’ she asked.
Before they went out, she received a DM from an unknown woman with a screenshot of O.T. in another woman’s DMs.
‘Somebody come get this man,’ the text read, to which Malika responded, ‘Not my man, not my problem,’ and the woman wrote back, ‘Love it. Love you. You’re doing great.’
Due soon: The festivities featured Malika feeling some discomfort as her due date neared
On Instagram, Malika posted, ‘Please stop sending me my ex’s news. I am single. Not my business. And when I get some news, hold that, too.’
She then texted O.T.: ‘Please don’t play yourself. You’re gonna end up on a blog playing with these hos. She’s cute though. LOL.’
‘I don’t talk to b****es that wear pink hair. LOL,’ he responded.

Malika was annoyed to hear about O.T.’s dating life, but still had a great time at the casino.
It was a brief respite from news about the coronavirus epidemic, which was everywhere.
Khloé, who’d been wearing a jacket marked, ‘Wash Your Hands’ in the casino, fell ill.
Back home, she put on a mask, and offered one to her mother Kris in case she had COVID-19.

She said her nanny had gone home and Kim had cancelled her meetings and gotten tested for the virus after a World Health Organization report detected an outbreak in their area.
At the end of the show, Khloé put her head down on a kitchen counter, sick and fatigued.
In a preview of next week’s show, her doctor mandated that she be separated from True.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians will return next week on the E! network.
