Keeping Up with the Cheaters

Anyone who keeps up with the Kardashian’s knows that 2018 has been one crazy year for the five sisters. Kim had her third baby, Chicago, born from a surrogate mother. Kylie, only 20 years old, gave birth to her first child Stormi with rapper Travis Scott. And lastly, Khloe gave birth to her very first children True within months of her other two sisters. As both Kim and Kylie welcomed their baby girls into the world happily and peacefully, this was not the case for poor Khloe Kardashian. Days before baby True was born, videos were released of True’s father and Khloe’s long-time boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, making out with another woman.

The episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s where Khloe finds out about Tristan’s unfaithfulness aired last night; however, the world found out about Tristan’s cheating back in April, along with the rest of the Kardashian Klan. This shows the power of social media and just how fast one single piece of information can be sent around the world in mere seconds. For Tristan’s case, he was at the wrong place at the wrong time—and obviously doing the wrong thing. A paparazzi or other person standing by snapped some pictures and videos of the basketball player all over another woman and quickly sent it in. Within minutes, the whole world had seen these pictures and learned of Tristan’s cheating. On the episode, the 4 other sisters saw the news and were too scared to tell Khloe as she was days away from giving birth to True. Finally, Kylie decided that Khloe needed to know what had happened and told her the awful news.

I feel that most people think social media is a great way to find out information that goes on in the world, and it is! But sometimes, in situations like this one it can be devastating to find out certain information from the internet, rather than hearing it in person. And even though Tristan did a terrible thing to Khloe, she was still able to have a healthy birth and bring her beautiful baby into the world.

I agree! In my opinion, social media is both a blessing and a curse when it comes to the spread of information. I can not imagine finding out something that has a huge impact on my life on social media, definitely not the ideal situation.

I agree, there is some information that should respected and not blasted for the entire world to see. Especially something like this, cheating is an emotional thing to experience and to have to share it with the entire world while going through it, I can only imagine how difficult that would be. Sometimes social media and the speed at which news is shared can be a bad thing and people forget that the ones being blasted a real people too.

I watched this episode last night, but do remember finding out about the scandal when it just happened. What is crazy is that not only did that picture/article come out, but as Kim mentioned in the episode, more and more cheating situations started to spread through the internet. It wasn’t just this one time! It was multiple times. Once one person posted and spread the word, more digging and posting of multiple cheating scandals occurred and Tristan was basically shamed by the whole world.
