If Scott Disick is a sociopath, as Khloe Kardashian began to earnestly believe circa the last season of “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” he’s finally figured out the part of being a sociopath that lets you get by in normal society. It’s the part where you turn with deep and meaningful eyes to the camera that follows you endlessly, and you say, “I’m really in a good place with my girlfriend, and I want to work on improving my relationship with her sister.” Except you say it the way Scott Disick does, in an almost lilting way that assures the world that everything is going to be all right some day.
God, I love sociopaths. They listen closely to you, smile a lot, repeat back things you want to hear, and then manage to impress Kanye West with their impeccable taste in clothes, as evidenced by Scott’s interactions with Kanye on last night’s premiere of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”
Scott Disick has been compared to Patrick Bateman of American Psycho fame. In fact, before I knew that others was comparing him to Bateman, there I was, patting myself on the back for coming up with my all too original observation. “Why, he’s bound to eat human brains sooner or later!”
Still, he’s been showing signs of changing, of wanting to settle down and be a good family man, a man who would only drink cocktails at dinner parties, the kind of dinner parties that don’t result in shoving money in a waiter’s mouth. (May Kim Kardashian’s 29th birthday live on in infamy for the spectacle Scott made!) He’s gone to therapy and tried to prove himself to be responsible over and over, which the previews for upcoming episodes of KKTNY do not necessarily support.
At this point, I’d like to take the opportunity to remind you that people like Scott Disick exist everywhere. They might be in your grad program, saying winning things to people while leading a double life (ahem, I know who you are). They might be your best friend from high school because you once got in a fight with her and decided to start calling her one (To the Aries this applies to: Sorry about that).
They might even be your friend who will remain anonymous who once convinced a young man to get a suite for her at the Waldorf, only to lock him out when he went to do an errand for her. The bill was something like 400 dollars. I almost called her a sociopath but then remembered there’s a fine line between sociopaths and strong women. (See also: Eleanor of Aquitane.)
The point is– Scott may charm you into thinking he has changed, but don’t be surprised when he’s throwing punches at walls again or saying something heinous about a woman’s body to her face. That’s just who he is. He’s now learning how to act like other people. Give him a nice pat on the back for it.
