In the Season 17 (!) premiere, “Birthdays and Bad News, Part 1” Khloé decides to invite her ex to daughter True’s first birthday party.

Meanwhile, Kim gets a devastating medical diagnosis that could change her life.
Claire and Joanna Darrow (Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Wendie Malick) accept the case of young attorney Cassidy Piper (guest star Elysia Rotaru), who faces felony charges and the possible loss of custody of her daughter.

Tom Cavanagh and Michelle Harrison also star.
TV broadcast journalist Tamron Hall returns to host Season 6 of this true-crime series. The premiere, “Vanishing on I-95,” revisits the 1990 case of Lorraine Hendricks, a Florida woman who was en route to Vero Beach, Fla., to visit a friend when she vanished. Two days later, her abandoned car was found, soon followed by the discovery of her corpse in a wooded area. As her story hit the area papers, one reader had the chilling suspicion her husband played a part in this death.
