The details of the scandal made headlines

The cheating scandal first made headlines in February, when Thompson was caught cheating on Kardashian with Woods. Woods was quick to share her side of the story, sitting down with Jada Pinkett Smith on Red Table Talk to explain: “It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out. Nothing.”

She added: “But I don’t think that he’s wrong either, because I allowed myself to be in that position. And when alcohol’s involved, people make dumb moves or people get caught up in the moment.”

Khloe Kardashian wasn’t impressed with Woods’ interview

Kardashian fired off a tweet after seeing Woods’ explanation of the story, writing: “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”

She added that Thompson was also to blame, but explained “Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”

Despite the cheating scandal, Kardashian defended Thompson

Even though Thompson disappointed and hurt Kardashian, she still defended his abilities as a father to their daughter, True.

When a fan tweeted: “hunny keep raising your daughter the best way you know how. All she needs is her mom. You’re doing great. Keep ya head up,” Kardashian responded: “Thank you love! You’re so very sweet. But he is a good dad to her. My sweet and special baby True will NEVER be put in the middle of him and I. I can promise that.”

Jordyn Woods is using the publicity to her advantage

There’s that old saying “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” and Woods is definitely using the media attention to her advantage. She’s gained more than a million new Instagram followers and is leveraging the attention to make bank with sponsored posts and business deals.

Woods’ eyelash line Eylure is taking off and she is reportedly planning party appearances in Dubai and the Middle East. According to The Blast, Woods “has been flooded with calls from companies who want to get their brands seen with the star.”

She took to Instagram this week to announce: “I am so excited to come to London next week to celebrate my @eylureofficial lash collection launching exclusively in @superdrug. All three lashes will be available in stores on the 25th of March!”

According to TMZ, paparazzi caught up with Woods at a West Hollywood restaurant last night, where she was hit with a stream of questions, but said nothing. Woods was asked: “Do you miss Kylie?,” “Have you moved your stuff out?,” “Have you seen Kylie and Travis are back together?,” “When will we see you with Kylie?,” “Have you spoken with Khloe?,” and “Do you regret doing Red Table Talk?”
