Khloé Revealed Why The Cheating Scandal Is Airing On 'KUWTK'

Diply 30 Oct 2018

If you're wondering how the Kardashians have managed to keep Keeping Up With the Kardashians on the air for 15 seasons, it's because they know that drama sells.

There's always something going on with this family, and at this point, I don't know what I'd do with myself if the show ended. Where would I get all my piping hot tea???

It seems like every member of the Kardashian family has their own sort of personal drama going on.

For Kylie, it was that she was hiding her pregnancy from the public for nine months.

For Kim, it's generally dealing with Kanye and his antics.

Kourtney was going through a public and messy breakup, and Kendall has had her own share of publicity fails.

I think the biggest, most dramatic event that people are talking about right now, is the cheating scandal between Khloé and Tristan Thompson.

If it feels like we've been talking about this all year, it's because we have, but it hasn't gotten old yet.

For those who need a quick refresher, let me help you out real quick.

Sometimes there's just too much going on and it's kind of hard to keep track of all the drama. I get it.

So basically, Khloé and Tristan announced that they were expecting their first child together.

And everything seemed to be going so well, right up until it wasn't.

Footage was leaked of Tristan getting a little too cozy with other women at a bar.

YouTube | E! Entertainment

It allegedly happened while Khloé was just a few months pregnant, but the footage wasn't released until days before she was due to give birth.

I'm 99.9% certain that the timing of that video release was orchestrated to line up with her due date — which is pretty rude — but anyway...

Khloé never really said anything about the cheating scandal, but the rest of her family made it blatantly obvious that it wasn't just a rumor.

Not to mention all the fans who had Khloé's back and roasted Tristan anytime they had the chance.

In the end, it was clear that Khloé had made the decision to stay with Tristan and work through things together as new parents.

And who are we to judge? If Khloé is happy, then whatever, right? I'm sure all she wants to do is move on with her life and not keep reliving the drama.

Over the last few months, she's come to her own defense, and has made it known that she's very much not here for people shading her relationship with Tristan any longer.

Anyway, as we know, their show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," has famously aired a lot of the dramatic events that happen within the family.

YouTube | E! Entertainment

And as we expected, we'll get a firsthand look at the cheating scandal as it happened.

Obviously, rewatching this episode is going to be pretty difficult for Khloé.

YouTube | E! Entertainment

She took to Twitter to explain her thoughts on the events being made public.

Load Comments

Twitter user, @AnnaP53, mentioned how bad she felt for Khloé, and that the upcoming episode is probably going to be a rough one.

Twitter | @AnnaP53

To say the least.

Load Comments

Khloé confirmed that the episode will definitely be hard to watch, but added that she signed up for the show for the good and the bad.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

Even if that means that the bad is hard to relive, she does have a point.

In the E! Entertainment promo for the upcoming episode, we see a few brief clips of how dramatic the whole event is going to be.

YouTube | E! Entertainment

We hear Kris say, "These guys are, like, always going for sloppy seconds."

What a true queen.

Load Comments

We see Kim on the phone with somebody, saying, "They have another video of him."

YouTube | E! Entertainment

Of course, the "him" is most likely referring to Tristan.

Load Comments

We also see a clip of Kim saying, "Unfollowed. I hate him. Sorry, not sorry."

YouTube | E! Entertainment

And as we all know, Kim did unfollow Tristan on Instagram, and in turn, Tristan blocked Kim.

Of course, months later we saw in a video Kim took that Tristan unblocked Kim and followed her again, which means clearly things are better between the family.

Load Comments

We'll have to catch the whole episode to see all the drama unfold...

YouTube | E! Entertainment

...which, you can be sure, there'll be plenty of. I'm so glad that Khloé is willing to spill this tea with us.

Load Comments

UPDATE Well, it finally happened.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

The cheating revelations episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians aired, and Khloé was an absolute champ about the whole thing.

Load Comments

No one could have blamed Khloé for wanting to keep this part of her life out of the spotlight.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

But instead, she decided to face it head-on, and she handled it with as much grace as you could ask for.

Load Comments

Throughout it all, over the last seven months, she has tried to keep her focus where it really matters.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

It's nearly a cliché to talk about how much meaning having a kid can bring your life, but it's pretty clear where Khloé's priorities are.

Load Comments

By allowing herself to be front and center of such highly publicized drama, she's also been given a platform to talk about what it's like to live this kind of experience.

Fans showed their support, letting Khloé know that she was absolutely off the hook for anything she wasn't comfortable with.

Twitter | @Khlocaine_

After all, even though we're here for the drama, these are real people and real heartache we're talking about.

Load Comments

And, honestly, we can't blame her for having some reservations about how much she was ready to engage with the whole thing.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

I'm not gonna lie, it also sounds like next week's episode is going to be just as messy.

Load Comments

Her tweets reveal just how strange it must be to relive these moments of your life months after they've already happened.

Twitter | @khloekardashian

I'm sure sometimes it's fun to sit back and laugh, but with drama like this, it's hard to imagine having to relive it.

Load Comments

At the end of the day, Khloé made the choice to put her story out there.

Twitter | @khloekardashian, Twitter

In doing so, she was able to demonstrate the strength it took for her to salvage a family, and to build the best life she can for True. I'm not about to say I could have handled it any better.
