In the Kourtney & Kim Take New York special Kim Takes Dubai, there’s a scene in which Kim Kardashian appears to be debating leaving her husband before her October 31, 2011 divorce filing. Except the scene was filmed in Los Angles on December 6.
Kardashian and Kris Jenner were caught in their lie when paparazzi agency Pacific Coast News took pictures of the mother and daughter leaving a Los Angles sound stage with the same outfits from the Dubai scene. The photos were dated December 6 with a blurb detailing the location. The images were syndicated on People.com and other outlets the following day.
The Dubai episode aired January 8, in a situation exacerbated by body-language experts and other critics examining the car scene and calling it a scripted and badly-acted fake.
That didn’t stop Jenner going on HLN, claiming the whole scene was shot in Los Angeles: “We shot the entire episode in Dubai. Everyone is going to take a shot about something and, you know, challenge you at every turn. [I let rumours] roll off my back. [My daughter and Kris Humphries] are great people, and they just need to move on and get on with their lives.”
