As the family prepares for the upcoming premiere of Season 13, Kourtney Kardashian has allegedly taken “drastic” action to save her kids, Mason, 7; Penelope, 4; and Reign, 2, from their hard-partying father.

And “my dad’s emphasis on sexuality [in his career] kept me out of the dating ring [when I was younger].” She was also scarred by her parents’ 1999 split — Howard divorced college sweetheart Alison Berns, the mother of Emily and her sisters, Ashley and Debra, after 21 years of marriage. He used to be one way, and then he marries a model.” (Howard, 61, married blond bombshell Beth Ostrosky, 18 years his junior, in 2008.) She muses that her mom’s re-entry into the working world might have been the straw that broke Howard’s back.

“I believed that my parents were very much in love,” Emily says, reflecting on her past. “Maybe he couldn’t handle it when she went back to work as a psychoanalyst.” Raised in tony Old Westbury, LI, the Stern daughters’ sheen as progeny of a celebrity belied a much more complicated adolescence.
