The drama between the Kardashians and Jordyn Woods is one of the biggest celebrity feuds of 2019. When it was first revealed in February that Tristan Thompson had cheated on Khloe Kardashian with her sister’s best friend, the world could not stop talking about it.
However, despite it being five months since then, the scandal has not gone away. In fact, it does not seem as if the Kardashians themselves want the scandal to go away anytime soon, especially if they do not yet have another one to take its place.
The drama with Jordyn Woods has been talked about on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’
As expected, fans were able to watch the Kardashians deal with the fallout of the drama with Jordyn Woods on the final two episodes of season 16 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, both of which aired in late June.
On episode 11 — titled “Treachery” — we got to see how the whole family dealt with the news of Thompson and Woods. And on episode 12 — titled “Aftershock” — Khloe Kardashian went on a getaway to help cope with the situation before we also got to see how she and the rest of the clan reacted to Woods’ famous interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith.
All the drama will continue in season 17, though a premiere date for that has not been announced yet.
The Kardashians use scandals to get ratings for ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’
The Jordyn Woods scandal helped raised ratings for season 16 and the final two episodes were some of the most widely-watched ones of the season.
It’s clear that drama helps draw in viewers and the Kardashians have understood this formula a long time ago. The family often uses airtime to talk about noteworthy events in their lives, especially those that have also been discussed widely in the news. For example, they opened up about Kim Kardashian’s robbery incident in Paris, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s infamous relationship, Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, and Khloe Kardashian’s divorce from Lamar Odom.
In fact, this pattern of the Kardashians using real-life drama to improve ratings is so obvious to fans that many believe the Jordyn Woods scandal was staged. There are rumors that Kardashian and Thompson split up a long time ago and the family is simply trying to invent a scandalous affair in order to get viewers to tune in to their show.
Whether it was staged or not, there’s no denying that lots of people were curious to see how everything unfolded on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Can another scandal dethrone this one?
Because the Kardashians seem to need drama going on around them in order to sustain a reality TV career, it looks as if they might not be able to let go of what happened with Woods until something else comes along to take its spot. But what exactly?
It’s hard to predict what will be the next scandal to hit the Kardashian family because quite a lot of things in the past have really come out of nowhere. However, there are a few events that we might be able to predict.
One possible scandal could involve a romantic partner. The family has had some bad luck in the romance department and we have seen many failed relationships being memorialized on Keeping Up With the Kardashians over the years. It’s likely that there are more dramatic moments to come in the future.
Or, as with some other scandals in the past, another one could hit the news without anyone being able to predict it. The Kardashians have a lot of family members, so there are all kinds of possibilities for what another huge drama could entail.
