Flip It Like Disick co-star Willa Ford has opened up about Scott Disick's comeback and how he's trying to make up for his past destructive behavior. He hopes this new career path will help him continue to reform his image.
Fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians have known Disick for more than a decade. He's Kourtney Kardashian's ex-boyfriend and the father of their three children, Mason, Penelope, and Reign. But the man that appears on the show now, which just aired its 16th season, isn't the same person that viewers met in 2007 when the series premiered. Now a mostly sober family man, Disick was once a huge partier who consistently started rowdy, drunk arguments and cheated on Kourtney. In an attempt to revamp his image and pay back the Kardashians for the pain he caused, he's started his own business flipping homes, which has turned into a new reality show, Flip It Like Disick. On the series, he renovates high-end mansions with interior design guru Ford.
Ford, who was a pop singer in the early aughts, launched her company WFord Interiors in 2012. She decided to join Disick on Flip It Like Disick because she though it was "a great story to be a part of," mostly due to the fact that Disick was getting a chance to rehabilitate himself. In an interview with Us Weekly, Ford said Disick had "been through a lot" and "hit the bottom" and now he wants to "make it up to his family and the people around him." She added that Disick shows her a lot of respect on set and defends her when the contractors are arguing with her. Ford added that as long as he continues to do that, "I'm good.”
Disick is obviously living a very different life than he did in his 20s. He's been exclusively dating the same woman, model Sofia Richie, since 2017, and has made his kids more of a priority. He continues to be on good terms with his ex Kourtney and remains a huge part of the Kardashian family. This latest spinoff is his next move toward becoming a more reliable and stable adult. It's also a great excuse for him to revamp his famous friends' homes. So far on the show, Disick and Ford have renovated the houses of celebrities like Khloé Kardashian's ex French Montana and musician Steve Aoki.
While a romantic reconciliation between Kourtney and Disick might not be in the cards, she told him on an episode of Flip It Like Disick that she's really proud of him for the work he's doing. It looks like the show is already helping him make it up to her and the rest of her family.
Flip It Like Disick airs Sundays at 9pm EST on E!.
