“I wanted to tell you guys something…I went to the doctor and had my scan,” she told her family before starting to cry during their family trip to Aspen, Colorado. “They found — and this just makes me really emotional — but they found a cyst and a little tumor on my ovary.”

She continued, “Dr. A said I’ve gotta have my ovaries taken out, and I’m emotional about it because they came in handy with you guys,” adding in a confessional, “That’s where all my kids were conceived, and that’s where they were grown, in my tummy. So this is a very sacred place to me.”

In her own aside, Kim admitted she feels “really sad” for her mom, noting that she can’t imagine what she’s going through or how scared she may be feeling about the news of having to undergo therapy.

“Listen, if I can get through the hip replacement, I can get through this,” Kris said. “I’m not nervous to be put to sleep. I’m not nervous with Dr. A. She’s the best doctor in the world. But then you go to do it and… it’s so real.”

When Khloé gets sister Kourtney Kardashian on the phone, Kris tells her the news. In a confessional, Kourtney explained that she understands what her mom is probably feeling because she’d be feeling it too.

“It’s your womanly power, and it doesn’t mean that it’s taking away who she is or what she’s experienced, but I would feel this sentimental feeling of what it’s created,” Kourtney said.

Kris cried throughout the entire exchange and shared that it’s a sign of her getting older and being officially done with a part of her life, which is sad: “It’s a whole chapter that’s just closed.”

New episodes of The Kardashians hit on Hulu on Thursdays.
