Kourtney Kardashian Tries to Convince ‘Notorious Non-Dancer’ Kim to Participate in Dance Class

Kim Kardashian West is many things, but she’s no “Dancing Queen.”

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim, 37, drops in on her sister Kourtney Kardashian‘s dance class — and while for a second it seems like she might be willing to jump in, she quickly clarifies that the dance floor is far from her comfort zone.

“I’m like, a notorious non-dancer,” she explains. “It’s a thing. So let me see what you guys are doing.”

Kourtney — along with the instructor and family friends Larsa Pippen and Malika Haqq — walks Kim through the steps of the choreography.

“Oh yeah, no,” Kim says with a laugh. “I don’t dance. I can’t, you guys. I can be a stage mom! You need to get more into it.”

And try as they may to cajole her, Kim just won’t budge.

“Kim has this inability to let loose. She’s not even moving,” complains Kourtney, 39. “I mean, if she’s just going to sit here and critique us, then she can leave.”

But at the end of the day, Kim says it best: “I just don’t dance — I make money moves.”

Sean ‘Puff Daddy’ Combs Says Notorious B.I.G.’s Death Is Still a ‘Heavy Weight to Wear’

It’s been 20 years since The Notorious B.I.G.’s was killed in a drive-by shooting, but Sean “Diddy” Combs is still deeply affected by his friend’s death.

“That’s something that’s life-changing,” Combs, 47, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “It’s a real heavy weight to wear on yourself.”

In 1993, the music mogul launched Bad Boy Records, and the duo’s careers skyrocketed after the release of Biggie Smalls‘ debut studio album Ready to Die.

For much more on Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs’ life as a dad and his plans for the future, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.

But just as Smalls (born Christopher Wallace) was gearing up for the release of his second album in early 1997, he was murdered on March 9 after leaving an industry after party with Combs, whose new film Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story (produced by Live Nation and available now on Apple Music) shares how Biggie’s death fueled the tight family at the label.

“You get guilt when you lose a friend,” says Combs, who’s a father of six. “It could’ve been you. You have to deal with that. It’s a heavy thing.”

Last month, the star hit the Billboard Music Awards stage with Wallace’s son, Christopher Jordan “C.J.” Wallace, 20, in Las Vegas to honor the late rapper and “was able to release” some of his burden.

“His son is grown up, mature, classy just a great person,” says Combs. “To see that we had a loss but it all worked out, it took some of the stress . I was able to pass the legacy to him and now he can carry it on.”

Thieves of Book Row: New York’s Most Notorious Rare Book Ring and the Man Who Stopped It

Thieves of Book Row: New York’s Most Notorious Rare Book Ring and the Man Who Stopped It

No one had ever tried a caper like this before. The goods were kept in a secure room under constant scrutiny, deep inside a crowded building with guards at the exits. The team picked for the job included two old hands known only as Paul and Swede, but all depended on a fresh face, a kid from Pinetown, North Carolina. In the Depression, some fellows were willing to try anything-even a heist in the rare book room of the New York Public Library. In Thieves of Book Row, Travis McDade tells the gripping tale of the worst book-theft ring in American history, and the intrepid detective who brought it down. Author of The Book Thief and a curator of rare books, McDade transforms painstaking research into a rich portrait of Manhattan’s Book Row in the 1920s and ’30s, where organized crime met America’s cultural treasures in dark and crowded shops along gritty Fourth Avenue. Dealers such as Harry Gold, a tough native of the Lower East Side, became experts in recognizing the value of books and recruiting a pool of thieves to steal them-many of them unemployed men who drifted up the Bowery or huddled around fires in Central Park’s shantytowns. When Paul and Swede brought a new recruit into his shop, Gold trained him for the biggest score yet: a first edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s Al Aaraaf, Tamerlane and Minor Poems. Gold’s recruit cased the rare-book room for weeks, searching for a weakness. When he found one, he struck, leading to a breathtaking game of wits between Gold and NYPL special investigator G. William Bergquist. Both a fast-paced, true-life thriller, Thieves of Book Row provides a fascinating look at the history of crime and literary culture.
