It’s been widely reported that Khloe Kardashian was cheated on by Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson just days prior to the birth of their first child. It’s also common knowledge that when Tristan and Khloe’s romance began, Thompson’s ex-girlfriend was pregnant. While the timeline is not clear, it’s fair to assume an overlap of some kind. Almost everyone has an opinion, and most of those opinions involve the narrative that since Khloe previously married an unfaithful basketball player, it stands to reason she should not have played that same game twice. While I agree that the Kardashian clan might invite the wrong types of men into their romantic lives, I don’t think that’s is Khloe’s particular problem. She consistently puts her own life aside to play Susie Housewife to her partner. And she isn’t Susie Housewife. Khloe Kardashian is an empowered multi-millionaire, based in Los Angeles, who has started an empire. In fact, she deserves a devoted house husband, not an entitled NBA basketball player in his twenties who has yet to sow his oats. I respect the idea of prioritizing our personal lives over our professional ones, but that’s not what’s going on here. She’s completely changing her life to accommodate someone else, and she’s done it far too many times to not learn a lesson.
Now for Julie Chen. It’s worth mentioning that her analysis on the subject is abhorrent and dangerous. When discussing it on The Talk, Chen said, “If I were Khloe Kardashian, I would completely ice him, change all my numbers. I would not let him have any access to the child and I would raise the child by myself with my family and tell the child, your father is dead.” That’s called parental alienation, and infidelity doesn’t justify it.
