This Is How Jordyn Woods Is Trying to Take Advantage of Her Sudden Fame
If you’re a fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, then you definitely know who Jordyn Woods is, and the scandal she caused within the family. Ever since the news broke of her alleged affair with the father of Khloe Kardashian’s daughter, Woods has had more than her share of the spotlight. Although a lot of the attention she’s received has been negative, Woods has been able to benefit from the scandal.
Who is Jordyn Woods?
Longtime BFF of Kylie Jenner, Woods often hangs around the entire Kardashian-Jenner family. She previously lived in Jenner’s guest house and made occasional appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The family treated her almost like another sister, and Jenner often gave her expensive gifts, including two cars and a Cartier bracelet worth $14,600. The pals even have matching tattoos to commemorate their friendship.
However earlier this year, the relationship hit some major rocks. It all started when witnesses claimed they had spotted Woods kissing Tristan Thompson, the boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian.
For the Kardashian-Jenners, it felt as if Woods had thrown a knife at their back. She was asked to move out of Jenner’s guest house and was insulted on social media and the reality show by Kardashian. Suddenly, Wood’s name was all over the media, and not for a good reason. Most fans viewed her as a home wrecker.
Woods, who is also good friends with Will Smith’s family, went on the talk show Red Table Talk to discuss her side of the story with Jada Pinkett-Smith. She claimed that although she kissed Thompson, it wasn’t something that was done intentionally or regularly. However, Kardashian is still upset, because it seems Woods keeps changing her story about what happened, and can’t seem to just tell the truth.
How all the attention has boosted Jordyn Woods’ fame
Having famous friends benefited Woods before the whole scandal hit. Just like Kim Kardashian, who once acted as a sidekick to Paris Hilton, Woods was able to gather a pretty large Instagram following from her occasional scenes on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. However, before she was caught with Thompson, only regular watchers of the show really knew who she was. Once the affair hit newsstands, everyone suddenly knew who Woods was.
Even bad attention can be good in today’s world, where having social sway means making big bucks. Woods has used her new fame to kickstart several projects. One is a fashion collaboration with Boohoo.com. Recently, Woods announced her new clothing line with an Instagram video that she captioned: “Something exciting is coming…@boohoo.” The video featured her leaning against a convertible, wearing a mini dress, stilettos, and bedazzled sunglasses which featured the jeweled letters J and W.
The fashion line will be a 60 piece collection that ranges in sizes from 2 to 26. Woods told Refinery29 that designing something women of all sizes can wear is important to her. “It wouldn’t feel right for me if every body type wouldn’t be able to wear something I designed,” said Woods. “I’ve been in situations to where there has been cute clothes that I couldn’t get in my size and I know how it feels.”
Has Jordyn Woods benefited from the scandal?
Although she lost her good friends, the Kardashians, there’s no doubt that Woods has benefited from all the fame that the scandal gave her. In fact, as far as friendships, it may not be all that bad. While Kardashian will probably never forgive Woods, there are rumors that Jenner may have already forgiven her. But the rumors are conflicting, so we don’t know for sure.
She’s also gained a lot from having her name out there. She has her new fashion line, and it’s highly likely that she’ll receive other offers, based solely on the fact that people now recognize her name. If she wanted to, she could probably even write a memoir about her experience.
So, was it worth it? That’s a question only Woods can answer.
