Exclusive interview! Chapman Ducote joins Kourtney & Kim Take Miami cast

Scott Disick Chapman Ducote Kourtney Kardashian Kristin Ducote

Kourtney & Kim Take Miami is returning for an all new season tonight at 9/8c on E! and in addition to the previous season's cast, fans will be meeting a new face -- Chapman Ducote. Chapman is President and CEO of Merchant Services LTD (a credit card processing company in Miami Beach) and a Le Mans Series race car driver who has become somewhat of a mentor to Scott Disick. This incredibly busy entrepreneur, sportsman, and soon-to-be reality star took time out of his incomprehensibly busy schedule to talk with Starcasm about everything from how he met the Kardashians to which sister is his favorite!

How did you meet the Kardashian/Disicks?

The first week of filming K&KTM, Scott went looking for some office space to rent. I have a beautiful 18,000 foot property on the water in Miami Beach, and when he came to check it out he noticed all of my racing trophies, suits and pictures in the lobby, and asked to meet me.

How long have you known Scott?

Scott and I met for the first time on camera while they filmed our first episode together in my office.

Has your style been an influence on Scott's trademark look, or is it the other way around?

Surprisingly, our shockingly similar styles developed entirely on their own. The first time we met, we were both taken aback - it was like looking in a mirror. Khloe commented on it several times. We have the same hair style, clothing tastes, and attention to detail. As we got to know each other, the similarities continued to surprise – we both like race cars, speed boats, and Tom Ford clothes, to name a few.

Do you have a favorite Kardashian sister?

They are each very different, and I enjoyed meeting and working with them all. Khloe was definitely the most fun of the three sisters to film with. She is very down to earth and hilarious.

Do you think its time Scott and Kourtney tie the knot?

Getting married is a personal decision, and timing is very important. It took me a long time to get down the aisle, and I'm glad I took my time because I was 100% sure of my decision to tie the knot. They are happy and committed, which unfortunately is more than many married couples can say.

How long have you and your wife been married? Do you have any children of your own? If so, do they play with Mason and Penelope?

We've been together for three years, but just got married 6 months ago. It's very new and we're still learning what it means to be married, which is sometimes challenging, and often humorous. I have the good fortune to be married to my best friend, which makes the job of husband a lot easier. My parents have been married almost 50 years and hers 42, so we have big shoes to fill. No children yet, we're taking a year or so to enjoy being newly weds, then we'll start trying.

Have you watched the previous seasons of K&KTM?

Before I met Scott in my office, I hadn't seen a single episode. Getting to know the family really piqued my interest, and I've made up for lost time. Great stuff!

Will this season be different than the first since Kim is pregnant? Did she and Scott get along ok?

You'll have to wait and see. My friends call me "the vault" for good reason.

What do you think of the Khloe/Lamar divorce rumors?

I think Khloe and Lamar are a strong, wonderful couple who love each other very much. Negative rumors are like parking tickets, annoying but not something to obsess over. In showbiz or any biz for that matter, you need to have thick skin. The people close to you know the truth, and that's what matters.

What is the biggest misconception people get from Kim? Kourtney? Scott?

In person, they are all surprisingly down to earth and approachable. Even though they have their squabbles, you can tell they are fiercely loyal and family oriented. Kim in particular is very driven and hard working, and I can appreciate that, because I work 24/7.

Will we be seeing much of Kanye this season?

See above. Lips = sealed. :)

What is your favorite thing about Scott?

I was completely shocked, but to be honest, Scott has real, raw talent behind the wheel. I believe he could develop into a real race car driver, if he focuses on it. My wife has been trained with me at the race track for a few years, and Scott on his first time in the racing karts, was able to keep pace with her, unlike any of my other friends. Impressive! He is also extremely witty in person, and remembers details of every conversation. He always finds a way to make those in his company laugh. That's a gift.

Have you seen Scott Disick's young adult book covers? Thoughts?

When you have looks like Scott and I do, you can't hide them. Don't give my wife any ides or I'll be on the cover of her new book, Naked Paddock, with no shirt, looking equally broody and wind blown. She already has me committed to run the full length of Lincoln Road in Miami Beach in a tight red speedo (which you'll also see on the show!), if the Kickstarter.com campaign for her book raises $100,000. Ah, the things we do for love.

Be sure to tune in to two all new episodes of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami tonight at 9/8c and 10:30/9:30c on E!
