The Kardashians are back on TV!
America’s favorite family (c’mon, you know it’s true) just debuted season 17 of their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, with an inside look at the first time Khloé and her ex, Tristan Thompson, were forced to be in the same room together.
The drama went down surrounding the first birthday party for Khloé and Tristan’s daughter. True Thompson is just an adorable little nugget who does not deserve to be at the center of all this awkwardness! #FreeTrue.
Ahem, anyway. Khloé revealed on camera that she is having a tough time moving on from the split, especially since Thompson allegedly wants to get back together!
“Tristan thinks people are disposable — if he sends me enough flowers or enough text messages, I’m going to come around,” she said during the debut episode, which aired on Sunday.
A source told The Sun that Tristan has been chatting with Drake (who would not be my #1 pick for romantic advice, honestly) about how to win back Khloé’s heart. He reportedly bought her a Porsche 911 worth $400,000 in addition to all those flowers.
“I’m really just trying to figure out my own life at the moment. I’m just healing and processing and going through the motions,” a clearly exhausted Khloé told viewers during KUWTK.
That’s a totally reasonable way to feel after your fiance gets caught cheating on you with your little sister’s best friend. Of course, when your last name is Kardashian and you literally built an empire on being image-obsessed sisters who love drama and pushing the best weight loss program for flat tummies, or whatever they’re selling these days… well, it’s hard to believe that Khloé truly wants to move on quietly with her life.
Ahead of Sunday’s premiere, she told Ryan Seacrest that she’s totally over the split and doesn’t blame anyone involved anymore.
“I’m not someone who holds a grudge. If I do that, it’s only going to affect me,” she said during a call to On Air With Ryan Seacrest. “That chapter is closed for me. I want all of us to move on and to be happy, successful people. I just want everyone to just be better people with each day. That’s genuinely how I feel.”
To be fair, the Kardashians filmed these episodes way back in April, so it’s possible that she really has moved on since then. During the episode, Khloé said, “I just haven’t been ready to talk to him because I feel like it’s going to turn into a screaming match and I don’t care to scream,” she continued. “But I said that I would be willing for the first time to speak to him if there’s a therapist involved.”
Before the night of the birthday party, Khloé agreed to let Tristan come over to talk. She claims that after their chat, he tried to kiss her. She claims it was incredibly awkward, but during the party itself, everyone tried to keep things civil.
Well, everyone except Kanye. But what else do you expect?
