Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick: Couples Therapy Saved Our Relationship

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars open up about their romance's ups and downs

Oprah Winfrey didn't pull many punches with Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian. As part of her massive Kardashian-family interview on Oprah's Next Chapter (the second part of which aired Sunday on OWN), Winfrey sat down with the couple and asked how they've managed to stay together for the past two years.

"We go to therapy, which helps us a lot," Kardashian, 33, revealed. "I could go [into the therapy session] despising him, but by the time I leave -- even if he's not in there -- I feel like I understand him so much more."

For his part, Disick, 28, seemed fully aware of how badly he could come across to viewers, saying, "I definitely have some a**hole tendencies." He blamed a lot of that behavior, as well as his "black sheep" status in the family, on his own insecurities.

"I am insecure about a lot of things. It is tough being in a big family, especially being [an only child]," Scott admitted. "So yeah, I take things pretty hard, and I am sensitive where people would never imagine that I am."

Disick confessed that it took him a while to bond with son Mason, and that he was miserable during the early months of parenthood. He also said that he doesn't feel worthy of Kourtney most of the time.

"She's pretty fantastic and doesn't do much wrong. It would make my life easier if she made more mistakes," Disick told Oprah in a web exclusive (watch below). "I probably don't deserve such a good person, but she makes me better, so in that sense I do deserve that."

Kourtney, now nine months pregnant with a baby girl, told Oprah that she and Scott were together on a trial basis when she got pregnant, and that fear of being a single mother kept her in the relationship (she admitted she "couldn't imagine doing it by myself"). Now, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star believes that staying with Disick was the right decision.

"He's grown so much over the years," said Kourtney of her partner. "I love seeing him as a dad -- he's great with Mason -- and I'm not saying that we're perfect."

And while Scott knows he's made a lot of mistakes, he hoped out loud that America likes him more now than they did two years ago.

"I can't ever take back the things I've said or done to anybody," he said regretfully. "Making Kourtney cry one, two or a million times [was the worst thing I've done on camera]."

But at least he now realizes what he has in his relationship with Kourtney. "When we met, it took a little time -- she didn't just say, 'Oh, I like you' -- and I realized I could actually be happy with somebody and have a best friend and a lover," Disick told Winfrey. "It was the first time I was able to be comfortable with somebody and think, 'Oh my God, I'm so lucky. I love this person.'"
