Kardashian Fans Want to Know ‘What’s Next’ After the Jordyn Woods Drama

The Kardashian-Jenner family has built their brand on drama and tabloid headlines. From romantic entanglements to speculation about plastic surgeries, there’s always something happening within the family. Still, few things could top last year’s Jordyn Woods-Tristan Thompson scandal: Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend publicly cheated on her with Kylie Jenner’s best friend. With everything that happened as the scandal wore on and a brand-new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the horizon, fans are now wondering how the famous family can possibly “top” the Jordyn Woods drama.

Past Kardashian family scandals

Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on television in 2007, introducing the world to the raucous Kardashian-Jenner family. From seductive, sweet Kim Kardashian to highly organized “momager” Kris Jenner, it seemed as though everyone was different from one another, but equally prone to drama. 

Some of the earliest Kardashian family scandals included Kourtney Kardashian’s ongoing problems with Scott Disick. The two got together early on in the show and over the years, welcomed three children, despite Disick’s scandals, including supposed alcoholism and cheating accusations. They ultimately broke up after the birth of their third child, Reign. Of course, Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries was one of the biggest scandals within the Kardashian family. It took her reputation years to recover, even as the family moved on to other events.

In early 2019, the celebrity world was rocked; news broke that Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner’s longtime best friend, had been spotted kissing Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter. Woods and Jenner were notoriously inseparable and had been BFFs for years. Woods was even living on Jenner’s palatial Calabasas property.

Although Woods denied that her relationship with Thompson had ever gone further than one kiss, the family excommunicated her. Woods moved out of Jenner’s house. To date, no one is quite sure if she and Jenner have resumed communication. Still, the family milked the drama for months on their reality show, seemingly finding any and every reason to bring up Woods or bash her name. Even now, one year after the drama first unfolded on a public stage, people are wondering how the Kardashians will possibly find something that attracts more attention than the Woods scandal.

What’s the next big scandal?

Recently, some fans on Reddit discussed some theories for the “next big thing” that might happen on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Many fans agreed that babies are always a good way to spice up the ratings. Some think that Kylie Jenner and her ex-boyfriend Travis Scott could reunite and even announce a pregnancy. With Kylie Jenner currently leading the pack as the wealthiest member of the family, any drama involving Jenner would undoubtedly draw interest.

Other posters suggested that Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson might elope in the coming season, which would certainly incite controversy among the fanbase. After all, Thompson did cheat on her several times and is a reviled figure among Kardashian fans. A reunion between the two would even stir up memories of the Jordyn Woods scandal. 

One thing fans seem to be united on is that Kim Kardashian’s pursuit of a law career isn’t interesting enough to sustain the show. Neither is Kris Jenner’s relationship with her longtime boyfriend, Corey Gamble. It seems that if they want to stay relevant in the coming year, the famous family will really have to unearth something truly scandalous.
