The Red Table Talk Controversy

Once again, the world got to see another Kardashian drama unfold online when news broke that Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods kissed Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend and father of their child Tristan Thompson.

For days after the news broke it was all anyone saw online, as new updates kept rolling in saying things like “Jordyn Woods is leaving Kylie Jenner’s guest house” and that Jordyn and Tristan had a “fling” going on longer than one drunken night mistake.

With the amount of backlash, Jordyn Woods was getting compared to Tristan who didn’t seem to be getting as much hate, Jordyn decided to do ‘The Red Table Talk’ with Jada Pinkett Smith. Jordyn’s aim of this talk was to tell people her side of the story and to try and get her point across.

This talk did not do Jordyn any favors in trying to win people over and trying to get them to see her truth.

In the interview, Jordyn stressed the main things that she wanted to get people to understand, how she ended up in Tristan’s house, and the events that occurred there. When describing what happened,when she went to leave his house she said “this is where the story gets tricky” and that when they kissed there was “no passion” and “he just kissed me no making out”.

She also mentioned that she is “no home wrecker” and that she should have told Khloe and Kylie the truth from the start instead of leaving the information of the kiss out as she knows now that she “hurt so many more people by not telling the truth”.

After watching the interview Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to give out to Jordyn. In one tweet she said, “BTW, YOU are the reason my family broke up!” Khloe had every right to be mad at this interview but singling out Jordyn and blaming the break-up of her family on only one person was not fair at all and completely one-sided.

Khloe and Tristan’s relationship was never going to last considering days before their daughter was born news broke that he had multiple affairs.

When she too got some backlash for what she said she then tweeted “Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter”.

Jeffree Star also decided to weigh in on the drama when he put up a video of him talking about ‘The Red Table Talk’.

He called Jordyn “fake and phoney” and when talking about Jordyn and Tristan together he said “yall have been hooking up for a month or two” and that “the whole city of Calabasas knows it”.

His input added more fuel to the fire that was not needed. Many people in Calabasas may know the real story but for onlookers like the rest of us, it is easy to pick up that story and run with it without knowing the full truth which is unfair to the people involved.

Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson were completely in the wrong for what they did but the way the whole ordeal was dealt with in relation to the reactions it got was totally unfair to Jordyn. Jordyn Woods was pinpointed as the main culprit in this story as Tristan had cheated on Khloe before it didn’t come as much of a shock to people that he did it again.

Jordyn Woods’ image that she built up came falling down in a matter of days when this story came out. The reactions on social media had a major impact on her life and how she chooses to go on and rebuild that image is another story.
