This season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians is guaranteed to be the most dramatic ever — as Khloé Kardashian is reportedly prepared to address Tristan Thompson's cheating on the reality series. Khloé has yet to publicly discuss the scandal, but that will change once the famous family's show comes back.
"They always discuss real life things on the show. They’ve never ignored a topic," a source told Us Weekly. "It will definitely be brought up, but they don’t know how much. They can film hours about it, but in the end, Khloé is one of the executive producers and will have final say on what actually makes air." As expected, the NBA star is not thrilled about the news.
"He doesn’t understand why it has to be addressed, but Khloé has said if it’s not dealt with on the show, questions will continue to linger," a second insider shared with the publication. "No one has heard from Khloé directly about what she felt or what she has gone through, and she pointed out to Tristan that she won’t do anything to hurt him by briefly discussing the cheating. She has moved on from it."
Khloé welcomed her baby girl True Thompson just days after Tristan's cheating with Instagram model Lani Blair went public — and a brand and reputation expert explained to Life & Style exclusively how addressing the unfortunate incident on screen might benefit the new mom. "I think Khloé benefits now from being a sympathetic character, and will have people connect with her that perhaps didn't connect before," Eric Schiffer explained. "[They'll] see her as someone who deserves empathy, understanding, and the right man. I think her intentions were to have a good man. She's now suffered with multiple partners who have become major, shameful disappoints — either hitting rock bottom or a rock bottom of morality, making boneheaded choices, and ultimately backstabbing themselves."
So, when is KUWTK coming back?
As of right now, no premiere date has been revealed for the upcoming season. However, Season 14 premiered in October — just six months after the previous season ended. This means Season 15 can begin airing as soon as August or September of this year. And along with Tristan's cheating, fans can expect to see more behind-the-scenes moments from Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner also welcoming their baby girls. At the end of the day, you know Kris Jenner is loving the drama.
