The Kardashians are back AGAIN!
We now know that not a week goes by without members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan dominating the news — whether it’s failed photoshops, sizzling bikini shots, juicy details about their romantic lives, or the Kar-Jenners just being the Kar-Jenners.
However, just when we thought we had seen it all and knew everything the famous family could do, we were hit in the face with a wrecking ball. — at least I was — when news broke that Khloé Kardashian was welcoming a second child, not just with anyone, but with her cheating ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson!
Phew! That’s a lot to take in indeed.
Khloé Kardashian & Tristan Thompson: Fashionable cheating!
Forgive my lame attempt at trying to merge cheating and relationship, but that was the main vibe of The love story of Khloé and Tristan.
We all know the story, the pair became an fixture in late 2016 as Khloé moved on from her failed marriage to basketball player Lamar Odom.
He was supposed to be the knight in shining armor who was showering Khloé with love and gave her the one thing she had prayed for – a child. However, that fairy tale quickly fell apart when the Chicago Bulls player cheated on her while she was pregnant with their 4-year-old daughter, True Thompson.
The couple went back and forth, Khloé gives Tristan chances and the basketball player squanders it with several affairs – including Tristan kissing his younger sister Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
However, it seems that the straw that broke the camel’s back for Khloé and her weary fans, who were clamoring for her to dump her ass, arrived in December 2021.
Tristan fathered a child with Houston trainer Maralee Nichols and news only broke because she sued the athlete for failing to pay child support.
For those who watched Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” we saw how the drama unfolded in real life and it was super messy! As seen in the last two episodes of the first season, Khloé’s sisters Kim, Kourtney, Kylie and Kendall stumbled upon the news online just like the rest of us.
Tristan didn’t even have the courtesy to let her know he fathered a child with the girl he cheated on at his 30th birthday celebration — a party Khloé threw for him.
Keep in mind that while the Nichols pregnancy saga unfolded in secret, Khloé had finished her new home that she hoped she and Tristan would move into and kick off their journey of expanding their family. Good ! It didn’t end up happening.
In a confessional in the final episode, Khloé bared her heart. “I’m not sure there’s one thing that hurts more than the other in a situation like this,” she said in response to a question asking why she was particularly upset.
She continued, “It’s all an act of treason. It’s all lies. It’s all manipulation. It’s deception. ‘Has Tristan had a chance to tell me? Yes’ ‘Did Tristan was going to tell me if a baby was involved? Absolutely not.’ And that says a lot about his character. The whole thing is despicable.”
Whether Khloé felt that and meant the words she said, why the hell does she have a second child with the man who completely humiliated her? Well, I have two theories.
Is this a policy of respectability?
Listen to me! The Kar-Jenners live by one rule and one rule only – the family is the most important. The clan carefully created an image and a system where nothing can separate them and it worked.
But alongside this family-first image, there is a need to give fans the perception that they are “different” and uninvolved in the “baby daddy” stigma that has plagued most famous women.
If you look closely at the Kar-Jenners, you will notice that they all have their children with the same man. In fact, only Kim is somewhat of an exception to the rule in that she had all four of her children. – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm – while legally married to ex-husband Kanye West.
For older sister Kourtney, she had her three children — Penelope, Mason and Reign — with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. They have never been married. Kourtney is however now married to Travis Barker and they are trying to have a child.
Youngest sister Kylie had her two children, Stormi Webster and son – whose name remains unknown – with her rapper boyfriend Travis Scott.
Kylie and Scott’s relationship is quite surprising as they welcomed their first child less than a year after they met, meaning she conceived around just three months after their first affair in April 2017.
And no, it couldn’t be a mistake! Nothing is wrong with the Kar-Jenners!
Neither Kylie nor Scott took their relationship to the next level, but they have since grown their family.
Could it be that the Kar-Jenners are so keen on having their children with the same man to separate them from other baby mamas who have children with different men? Remember their nemesis, Blacc Chyna
Are they so determined to be “respected” that no matter how awful the man is to them, they wouldn’t budge from having kids with him?
Or is that all for ‘The Kardashians’ Season 2?
It’s not news that nothing happens to the Kar-Jenners by accident. Thanks to awesome momager Kris Jenner, many believe everything about the famous clan is neatly constructed/organized – from Kim’s infamous sex tape to their picks of men – to paint them in a certain light and earn them some big coins!
All is happy for the Kar-Jenners and Khloé having a child with her cheating ex may not be off limits. Just a few days ago, on Monday July 11, the ‘The Kardashians’ season 2 trailer” has been freed.
In the trailer, we see the women having a good life. Kim and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson are thriving, Kourtney and Barker are doing well and getting ready to walk down the aisle, and Kylie and Scott are thriving.
Khloé seems to be the only sister – apart from Kendall who lives quite low-key and is related to NBA player Devin Booker – without a juicy storyline.
She’s single and apparently has nothing “controversial” or “exciting” about her. Could the news of a child with Tristan be a ploy to entice fans and get them interested in watching the show when it airs in September?
Are we going to find out how this whole surrogacy thing went? We would love to know!
