Are We Out of the Woods Yet?

Story by Daniella Kitawi

In life, friends come and go but most don’t cheat with your older sister’s ex? News recently broke out that 21 year old model, Kylie Jenner’s best friend and housemate Jordyn Woods was caught making out with Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s baby.

This isn’t Thompson’s first cheating scandal either. He was caught cheating with two women days before Khloe gave birth to their baby daughter, True.

If this were to happen to you and your best friend did it, what would you do?

“I’d react the same way she [Khloe] did but I don’t want to hear how or what. Just kick them out [of the house],” freshman Jaiden Armstrong said.

“If my best friend ever did this to me I would be so angry and hurt, like I don’t know what I’d do,” freshman Marjai Kelly said.

The Kardashians are angry but the thing that puzzles people is that most of that anger is towards Woods.

“I don’t think it’s all her fault, people are acting like Tristan isn’t to blame either,” Kelly said.

“I’m not big on the Kardashians but it’s not fair how Jordyn is taking all the blame,” freshman Jayden Harris said.

Everyone loses friends, some grow apart or end in a big dispute; especially in middle and high school. Jenner and Woods met the summer before high school through Jaden Smith, Jenner’s boyfriend at the time, and this is where their famous friendship began.

When news of the scandal broke out on February 21, days went by until Woods finally broke the silence on ‘Red Table Talk’ with Jada Pinkett Smith.

According to Woods, Thompson kissed her but she reciprocated. Some stars had things to say about the scandal themselves. Some took to defend Woods and others bad mouthed her.

Will Smith took to social media trying to give Woods courage. “You’ll never get around the world attacking, but I want you to know that you are supported and I got you and we [Smith family] got you,” Smith said.

“Jordyn knew what she was doing and Tristan knew there was going to be some drama if someone ever found out. Which is pretty stupid cause they did it around people,” Armstrong said.

Some didn’t show as much sympathy.

“I think it’s Jordyn’s fault. We already know Tristan is just a cheater but, like, Jordyn was Kylie’s best friend. She should’ve known better,” sophomore Imani Vera said.

With everyone putting their two cents into this whole scandal, we don’t hear much from Khloe and Kylie. In fact, no one has heard anything from Jenner, who has decided not to speak about the situation. Although according to “Cosmopolitan” a source says she "feels lost" and, "It’s really sad for Kylie because Jordyn was Kylie’s only real friend."

Woods has suffered, aside from the mild humiliation of memes made, things go deeper than that as the model explained on “Red Table Talk”. Not only did the scandal affect her and the Kardashian-Jenners, but her own family as well.

“Everyone’s safety is now… We can’t leave the house,” she said. “My brother can’t go to work, my sister can’t go to school and she’s 12 years old. My mom can’t even go to the grocery store. I’m not here to play the victim. I’m here to take responsibility,” Woods said on Red Table Talk.

The situation just doesn’t seem to be coming to a conclusion, continuing to suck people into it whether they were involved or not.

At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be room for reconciliation, at least for Kylie and Jordyn but whatever happens, we’ll all be there watching and waiting.
