Jordyn Woods Shut Down Kim Kardashian's Claim That Kylie Jenner Is The Reason She's Rich And Famous
Just when you thought the drama was over, Keeping Up With the Kardashians has dragged it all back up again. I am, of course, talking about the never-ending Jordyn Woods/Khloé Kardashian/Tristan Thompson saga.
You absolutely don’t need me to recap what went down, but, for the people in the back, here’s the long and short of it:
— In February, reports surfaced that Tristan, then-boyfriend of Khloé, had hooked up with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn, while at a house party.
— Jordyn denied this happened. In a tell-all interview she claimed that Tristan had kissed her as she was leaving, but that was all.
— On Sunday night, KUWTK aired the first of a two-part midseason finale detailing what happened behind the scenes as the drama went down. In the episode, the Kardashians found out about the rumours, with Khloé asking Jordyn for more details. According to Khloé, Jordyn eventually admitted that yes, she and Tristan had made out. You can read a full episode recap here.
— The next episode, which airs this coming Sunday, will continue to address the aftermath of the drama.
Before the first episode aired, Jordyn said that everybody “has the right to speak their truth” but that she hoped the “real her” would be portrayed on the show.
However, judging by her latest comments, it looks like she might not have gotten her wish. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Jordyn appeared to clarify or refute two comments in particular that were made during Sunday night’s episode.
Jordyn was first asked about the claim that she hadn’t apologised for making out with Tristan when the episode was being filmed and that she had instead downplayed the whole thing.
In the episode, Khloé said: “She’s downplaying the situation. She’s saying, ‘It wasn’t intimate; it wasn’t sexual’, and that wasn’t at all what she said on the phone to me originally. I’m not saying things can’t happen. I’m the most understanding person ever. But Jordyn has never once said sorry. She doesn’t have to be afraid of me. I’ve spoken to her with love.”
This was something that Khloé echoed back in May when she tweeted her reaction to Jordyn’s Red Table Talk interview, suggesting that Jordyn had yet to apologise.
However, in yesterday’s interview, Jordyn shrugged the claim off, saying: “Of course I’m sorry and apologetic as much as I can be.”
Jordyn was then asked about a comment made by Kim, in which she appeared to suggest that Jordyn owed her fame and fortune to Kylie Jenner.
“She provides for her whole family off of what you have given her,” Kim said while on the phone with Kylie. She later added: “Jordyn was someone that Khloé really trusted and believed in and supported and employed.”
Kim’s remarks caused a backlash on social media as people called the comments “demeaning” and accused her of having a “white saviour complex”.
However, Jordyn refuted the claims, saying that she works hard and has done so since she was 18 years old.
“I definitely work very hard for a lot of the things I have,” she said. “As you can see, I’m out here hustling and I’ve been working. I started modelling when I was 18 and, you know, I work hard.”
Interestingly, it seems that Jordyn is currently playing the Kardashians at their own game. This week saw her reveal a new clothing collaboration with Boohoo mere hours after KUWTK aired, capitalising on the show’s buzz.
