Happy Monday Reader! I hope you had an amazing weekend. This past weekend Tony, myself and our friend Joe went out to a Chinese buffet. Inexpensive and tons of sodium. Everything that fulfilled Joe’s cravings 😛 And to be honest, it was good for a moment but I felt grossed out after. I was still full into the next day. I couldn’t wait to get back to the gym.
Today I wanted to touch on one of the biggest stories we’ve been hearing about all over social media and tabloids: the Khloe Kardashian/Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson cheating scandal. Some of you may be interested in celebrity news, some of you may not. This post will be more than just the celebrity gossip itself, I promise.
When the news broke that Jordyn Woods who is the best friend to Kylie Jenner, sister of Khloe Kardashian hooked up with Khloe’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson, social media went wild. Memes for days it seemed like. A lot of people sympathize for Khloe being cheated on again; others were quick to say this situation shouldn’t have been a surprise.
Jordyn was kicked out Kylie’s house and cut off from all businesses with the Kardashians. She went silent for nearly a week until she did a public interview on the Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. I had a chance to watch the interview as well as keeping up with tweets from Khloe Kardashian all weekend.
Long story short, Jordyn admitted Tristan kissed her but they didn’t hook up, didn’t make out, she didn’t dance on him, etc etc. But nonetheless, she admitted to being wrong because she was not honest about it. She claims she has had no communication with Tristan since the incident and she said wanted to take a lie detector test.
Soon after the interview was aired, Khloe had no problem taking it to Twitter so quickly. She excused Jordyn of being a liar and the reason for why her family broke up. She also defended Tristan stating that he will be a part of their lives because of their daughter True.
First question, if you follow, what do you think about the situation? How do you feel for everyone involved? Kylie? Jordyn? Khloe?
Secondly, have you ever been in this type of situation or know of someone who has?
I saw nothing wrong with Jordyn doing a public interview. She had nothing else to lose in this situation. She lost a close family, her best friend, and she’s been embarrassed all of over social media. Whatever. Let her do the public interview. She went silent out of respect knowing she was in the wrong. Khloe taking it to Twitter so shortly after the interview was a terrible idea and she should’ve thought twice.
Yes, she was cheated on by Tristan, I get it. But to go on social media and bash Jordyn and defend the man who cheated on you makes her really dumb. Needless to say, she went back on Twitter the next day and took back what she said and reverted the comment back to Tristan, blaming him for the reason why their family broke up.
So why is it ladies? If you’ve ever been done wrong by your significant other, whether he or she cheated on you, played you with different men and women, why is it that we’re so quick to blame the other female/male before pointing fingers at the unfaithful one in the relationship? Is it easier to blame the other “person?” Is it because we just love that person too much that we end up not loving ourselves more?
I was in a long term relationship with someone that played me out and cheated with other women. And I’ll admit, I was always quick to jump at other bitches first. Maybe I was oblivious or maybe I really believed someone that I once loved could change his ways. Don’t we all believe in change? Don’t we all believe in second chances?
But how many chances are too many chances? I’ve had friends who been played and cheated on as well and I could talk up a storm as to why they need to leave that person but I could barely take my own advice at the time.
It’s easier said than done sometimes. Being cheated on has its way of shifting your trust and giving you a distorted vision of what love looks like. Some give up on love entirely; some stay with unfaithful partners who keep the same cycle going.
I learned a lot about myself and what I wanted in my relationships moving forward. I’m very fortunate I found someone who shares my same vision of loyalty, trust, communication, and commitment to each other.
Ladies and Dudes, do me a favor if you ever run into these kinds of situations: remember to love yourself first. Your heart and mind deserves to be at peace knowing you are with someone who remains loyal to you.
Also, if you ever have an intuition that your partner is doing something wrong, go with it. Your intuition won’t lie to you. There’s a reason for it.
Let me know your thoughts on this post. I hope you enjoyed the read. Hope you enjoy the rest of your Monday!
Until the next post,
With love and support,
