Kylie And Jordyn Were At The Same Party This Weekend

It’s been a few months since the height of the Kylie and Jordyn drama, and we’ve all pretty much moved on. Sadly, we have jobs, so we can’t just spend our entire days refreshing Instagram to see who has liked Kylie’s latest post. But while most of us civilians have accepted the fact that Tristan Thompson is garbage and moved on with our lives, we don’t really know where Kylie and Jordyn stand in the aftermath of all of this.

Of course, in the weeks following the initial chaos of Jordyngate, there were endless reports on Kylie and Jordyn texting, or meeting up, or sending smoke signals to each other across Calabasas, but all of it was pretty much based on nothing but rumors and anonymous sources, which are hard to trust.

But this weekend, we finally know for a fact that Kylie and Jordyn were in the same place at the same time. Thanks to the good people of TMZ, there is photographic evidence of both of them arriving at Bootsy Bellows in WeHo on Friday night for their friend Stassie Karanikolaou, better known as @stassiebaby on Instagram. I’ll get to more on her in a minute.

Sadly, I was not at the party, so I can’t attest to what happened once they were inside, but at the very least, Jordyn knew for a fact that Kylie would be at this party, and she still chose to go. Who knows if they had a long conversation, or even really interacted at all, but it’s hard to avoid someone in a club VIP. In my heart of hearts, I feel like Kylie and Jordyn can at least have a casual conversation without things getting weird. They left in separate cars (Kylie with Stassie, and Jordyn with Jaden Smith, because this friend group is insane), but I hope they at least had a chance to chat inside.

As if there wasn’t already enough to think about at this party, Tristan Thompson happened to be at the same club on Friday night. He most likely wasn’t invited to Stassie’s party (that would be messy af), so it’s fairly likely that he didn’t even cross paths with Kylie or Jordyn, but honestly I’m feeling inspired to write a screenplay about Friday night at Bootsy Bellows. There’s got to be a movie somewhere in all of this.

After the party on Friday, Kylie spent Saturday celebrating Stassie’s birthday again with a really questionable party themed around The Handmaid’s Tale. I’m not sure she knows what the show is actually about, but I’m glad she and her friends had fun running around the house in bonnets and calling their makeup artist/friend Ariel Tejada “Commander Ariel.” Sorry Kylie, but I really don’t think Gilead would take kindly to your thirst trap selfies.

The birthday weekend for Stassie continued on Sunday, with a pool day where everyone wore pink bikinis.

You can tell that Kylie and Stassie have been friends for along time, because they’ve clearly had all of the same surgeries. Love that! According to Instagram, the only other person at the pool day was Yris Palmer, who owns a lash extension company that the Kardashians endorse.

As for Stassie, here’s what you need to know. First, she is not the same person as Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules. They do look a little similar, and I’m sure Stassi Schroeder would die to be invited to Kylie Jenner’s pool, but this is a different Stassie. Stassie Karanikolaou (I memorized the spelling so I’m going to say it as many times as I can, okay) and Kylie have been friends for nearly a decade, so she’s not some new sidekick tagging along to get followers. She’s an old sidekick tagging along to get followers! In the months since Kylie and Jordyn hit their, um, rocky patch, Stassie has been seen with Kylie a lot, so she’s really making the most of this opening.

Stassie is a model, because basically anyone with four million Instagram followers can be a model. She also has a YouTube channel, and it’s not exactly premium content. Her most recent video is a haul from White Fox (obviously sponsored), and it’s honestly one of the lowest-energy videos I’ve ever seen. Being good at YouTube is a talent, and I’m not sure Stassie has it. Actually, I’m p sure she doesn’t. But what do I know, she’s the one with 200k subscribers.

In terms of where Kylie and Jordyn stand in their friendship now, it’s still tough to know. They still both follow each other on Instagram, so it seems like things haven’t gotten worse. Neither of them liked the other’s photos from the birthday festivities this weekend, but Jordyn did like a video of Stormi that Kylie posted the other day. Kylie hasn’t liked any of Jordyn’s recent posts, but she’s probably busy coming up with new and creative products that will destroy your skin.

So for now, you can all go about your important daily routines, but I’ll probably keep checking to see if Kylie throws a like Jordyn’s way. At this point, it’s just the humane thing to do, Kylie. And as for Tristan Thompson, I hope he had a terrible time at the club on Friday and no one wanted to go home with him.

Kylie Jenner Is Saying She Didn’t Discount Jordyn’s Lip Kit On Purpose

While we’re all waiting for the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson scandal to play out on the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians it’s also still happening in real life. Kylie Jenner is now saying she had nothing to do with one of the shadier moments of #Jordyngate, and personally, I’m calling bullsh*t.

Back in happier times, Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods did a collaboration for Kylie Cosmetics, and in the immediate aftermath of their fallout, the price of the Jordyn Lip Kit was slashed in half. The entire world noticed, and it seemed like one of the most savage things Kylie could have done to her ex-best friend. But now, over a month later, Kylie is coming forward to say that she wasn’t the one behind the discount. Sure, Jan.

When asked by the New York Times about the lip kit discount, Kylie had a lot to say. “That is just not my character. I would never do something like that and when I saw it, I was like, thrown back. Jordyn knows I didn’t actually put it on sale.” I have some thoughts about this. First, is “thrown back” something that people say? I think she’s looking for “taken aback,” or “thrown off,” or even “shook,” but I guess she still has some things to realize. Also, she did actually put it on sale. Even if she wasn’t the one calling the shots, it’s still her company, and the lip kit was obviously on sale.

Kylie’s explanation for the shady-looking discount seems like it could be legit at first glance. She says that her company was in the process of switching from white to black packaging, so all the older stock was getting discounted. If this is true, then why wasn’t, like, half of the website on sale? I’m pretty sure that Jordyn’s lip kit wasn’t magically the only product with white packaging that was left in stock. And if this sale was planned weeks in advance like Kylie claims, then it seems like they could’ve easily just changed the start date to make it less shady. But they clearly wanted to be shady!!

kylie cosmetics slashing the prices on the Jordyn lip kit is the only level of petty allowed

— ??‍♂️⭐️RAVE NYMPH⭐️??‍♂️ (@acaiprincess) February 23, 2019

Interestingly enough, Jordyn’s lip kit has now been restored to the full, original price. This is probably the clearest piece of evidence that Kylie Jenner wanted to be a messy bitch, but then felt bad. If Kylie Cosmetics was actually so desperate to get rid of all this white packaging, there’s no reason that they would be raising prices. If anything, this sh*t would be getting cheaper and cheaper. As someone who has worked retail, I know that if I want something that’s on sale, it’s almost always smart to wait a week or two for the price to drop even more. Either Kylie is really bad at running a store, or she’s really bad at lying about not being shady.

So now that Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods are reportedly working on repairing their friendship, you can buy a Jordyn Lip Kit for the original price of $27. I’m so happy that these two are mending their relationship, and making more money in the process!

Who Is Karizma Ramirez, Tristan Thompson’s New Woman?

It’s been just two weeks since the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson scandal rocked all of our worlds, but the drama really never ends. I’ll admit, in the days since Jordyn’s interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, I’ve tried to focus on other things, like my job and my real human relationships. But after six arduous days of pretending to be a real person, luckily there’s new Kardashian drama to keep me occupied. Tristan Thompson, who is the literal worst, has already been seen out and about with a new woman who’s been identified as model Karizma Ramirez. Who is Karizma Ramirez? Let’s go through the details.

On Tuesday night, Tristan was seen with Karizma Ramirez in NYC, after having dinner together at Nobu. They also apparently went to Carbone together last week, because even a douchebag like Tristan can’t resist their spicy rigatoni alla vodka. Seriously, I’ve been trying to get a table at Carbone for months, so should I just agree to go on a date with Tristan Thompson? I’m really weighing my options at this point.

Thank You Next: Tristan Thompson spotted with new woman. Just last week Tristan was giving kisses goodbye to Jordyn Woods and now there is a new lady he’s been connected with. Sources claim the NBA player met up with Karizma Ramirez, an east coast chick that use to work at Hooters, on two occasions. It’s unclear if she’s his new boo, but it’s a strong possibility. Ramirez has a history of dating celebrities, she was linked to dating Chris Brown while he was with Rihanna. www.LOREALLUCHI.com ??

So while Tristan might just be pulling his classic move of hooking up with whatever groupie is in the town he’s visiting for an NBA game, I still need to know more. Especially because of the recent drama, Google searches of “who is Karizma Ramirez?” are going to be through the f*cking roof. We might forget her name by this time next week, but for now, let’s dive in.

First, I’d just like to reiterate that her name is Karizma. It’s like charisma, but if you put it through a blender and then tried to put the pieces back together. I’m not sure if this was her birth name, or if she came up with it all by herself, but still, great work to whoever picked this name. I see a spelling bee in your future!

Karizma Ramirez is a 28-year-old model from New Jersey, and she’s like, really pretty. The most important fact about her past, other than that she competed in the Hooters Swimsuit Pageant in 2010, is that she used to date Chris Brown. Yikes. I’m not trying to come for Karizma personally, but it strikes me that she might not have the absolute best taste in men. Just a casual observation.

Frustratingly, Karizma’s Instagram is private, which seems like an odd choice for a model. At the time I’m writing this, she has less than 6,000 followers, so it seems like she really doesn’t just approve anyone. Interestingly, one of those 6,000 followers is Blac Chyna, which is probably just a coincidence, but it really makes me wonder. Are Karizma and Chyna in cahoots? I always low-key thought that Blac Chyna would be the one to bring the Kardashian empire crashing down, so I wouldn’t put anything past her.

Maybe, instead of asking “Who is Karizma Ramirez?”, we should be asking ourselves “Who does Karizma Ramirez work for?” Have I just exposed a secret anti-Kardashian mafia? Idk, only time will tell. Either way, Tristan Thompson is a dick, and I hope Khloé Kardashian is doing amazing right now.

Why Aren’t We Coming For Tristan Thompson?

Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that Tristan Thompson *may have* hooked up with his kind-of sister-in-law’s best friend, Jordyn Woods, last week. Since that fateful night, the internet has been living for all the drama as it unfolds, giving us some of the best memes of 2019 so far. It’s also left us with a lot of questions. Was Jordyn really feeling loose off the goose—I mean, hennything is possible—and did the alleged hookup take place? Does Khloé have a right to feel surprised when this is very similar to how her relationship with Thompson began? And should any of us really be shocked by Tristan’s behavior, given that this is the same dude who made out with a girl in a club while his baby mama was on the verge of giving birth? (Sidenote: I need celebrities to be smarter about the way they cheat. Did you think we wouldn’t find out bro, really? We found Bin Laden in a cave, you didn’t think we would see you bringing your thirst trap in through the front door of your hotel?) But I digress.

I’ll admit it—I have been eating this sh*t up all week. If Kris Jenner cooked this story up, someone get this lady her Pulitzer, because this is the stuff of Shakespearean tragedies. Betrayal! Lies! Infidelity! Borderline incest! There’s something that makes this cheating scandal particularly juicy, in a way that others haven’t been. On some level, I think a driving force behind the internet frenzy is schadenfreude. Until last week, Jordyn Woods had it made—free mansion living, lavish vacations, partnership deals with already-established brands. I’m sure all of us would like our friends to hook us up like that! Jordyn Woods had the easiest job on the planet, and all she had to do to keep it was not hook up with three men in the entire world: Kanye West, Travis Scott, or Tristan Thompson. (Let’s be honest, if she hooked up with Scott Disick we wouldn’t be mad at her—we’d be mad at ourselves for being shocked in the first place.) To see someone so expertly f*ck up the sweetest, easiest gig in the world, while we’re sitting here in our not-mansions, earning meager salaries, is pretty sweet.

And yet, we could make the same jokes about Tristan, but we aren’t. Tristan also committed a betrayal, and f*cked up a sweet arrangement, and I have not seen nearly as many people dragging him for it. I mean, he’s averaging 16 points per game for a team that has one of the worst records in the NBA. He’s making a ton of money, but he could stand to benefit in the future from being linked to figures as public as the Kardashians. Instead, he effectively ripped Khloé’s family apart (and his own) by hooking up with someone in her inner circle, nuking his own shot at permanent fame and wealth in the process. (Where do most good-looking athletes go after they retire? Television—only Tristan has now ended up on the sh*t list of one of the most powerful families in Hollywood.) Of course it was f*cked up of Jordyn to hook up with her best friend’s sister’s man. But isn’t what Tristan did just as bad, if not worse? It takes two to tango, but the only person in this equation who had a responsibility to remain loyal to his relationship was Tristan. The person who actually stepped out on his relationship was, you guessed it, Tristan. Where are the memes about him f*cking his way out of that? (The only ones you’ll see on the internet right now are from his last cheating scandal.)

I’m not exactly shocked, though. I mean, think about all the conversations you’ve had with your friends about the f*cked up things men do. Do you ever notice that those usually end with someone going, “he’s a f*ckboy, what do you expect” or “I know better now”? These sentiments loosely translate to my least favorite phrase: “boys will be boys,” a phrase that, according to Google, is “used to express the view that mischievous or childish behavior is typical of boys or young men and should not cause surprise when it occurs.” It gives men a blank check for their actions, literally from childhood. And we know that allowance doesn’t just stop when men hit adulthood—it is used to explain away the bad behavior of adult men. On an extreme end, it can be invoked to excuse Supreme Court Justices’ alleged sexual assaults. In less severe instances, like here, it’s used (even subconsciously) to minimize the hurtful actions of a man whose choices have negatively impacted his family.

Jordyn Woods, however, doesn’t have the luxury of a “girls will be girls” dismissal (even though she’s 21 years old to Tristan’s 27)—instead, she has to go to the media to try to defend herself, while Tristan has been able to remain mum ever since the story broke. It’s proof that she’s being ascribed more responsibility for an incident in which two people are equally to blame, mainly because she is a woman. In her interview, she and Jada briefly commiserated over the difficulty of being a black woman in the public eye. It’s easy to try to write that off that as “playing the race card” (whatever that is), but I think she has a point. Right now, Jordyn is being characterized as a home-wrecker (even by Khloé Kardashian in her recent tweet).

Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!

— Khloé (@khloekardashian) March 1, 2019


On the one hand, I get it—Khloé’s extremely hurt. It’s easier to lash out at the “other woman” rather than direct that anger toward the man you put your trust into. But whether she likes it or not, this is playing out in the public eye and is bigger than just her and Jordyn’s Instagram followers misery. To me, this implicitly calls upon the jezebel stereotype of black women, which dates back to the 1800s and implies that black women are inherently more sexual than white women, and are seductresses who break up marriages and families. Kardashian did eventually acknowledge Tristan’s own culpability, but it came as an afterthought, after days of publicly shading Jordyn.

Instead of having empathy, we shame women into staying in harmful archetypes that we claim we want to do away with. Why aren’t we instead shaming a f*ckboy so disloyal he will (allegedly) hook up with practically his own in-law?? It’s because we still don’t hold men to the same standards as women, in pop culture or in our personal lives. This scandal started out fun, but it has quickly revealed that even though we think we’re progressive in 2019, we’re still treating women like it’s the 1800s. If we’re demanding equality, we need to dish it out on all ends, and that means I better see more memes, tweets, and articles dedicated to flaming Tristan’s bitchass and revealing him for the piece of shit he actually is.

LIVE Updates On The Jordyn Woods Interview

In the history of the world, there are certain pivotal events that we all experience together. Everyone remembers where they were when man first landed on the moon, or Barack Obama was elected President. Today, we are at a crossroads, after which we will never be the same. This saga feels like it has been going on for years, but it’s only been 1o days since news of Jordyn and Tristan’s cheating surfaced. We’ve all been losing our minds over the last week and a half, but today, we should finally get some answers. After the longest 10 days of my life, Jordyn Woods is breaking her silence.

On Tuesday evening, Jordyn Woods sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith to record an interview for Smith’s Red Table Talks show. We still have no idea how this interview will go down. Will Jordyn be apologetic right off the bat? Will she come up with excuses, or use this as an opportunity to spill tea about the Kardashian family? We’ll find out soon. The interview is scheduled to go live today, March 1, at 9AM Pacific, and this is where we’ll be keeping you updated live as the interview unfolds.

AND. WE. ARE. LIVE. Jada immediately tells us that she’s known Jordyn her whole life, because her dad worked on Fresh Prince. This is going to be emotional, I can already tell.

“This is grown woman mess on a ‘mother level.” – JORDYN HAS SPOKEN.

Jordyn is in the kitchen with Jada and her mom, and Will Smith joins us via FaceTime. He obviously loves Jordyn, and tells her that she’s supported. Jordyn is already crying, so this is going to be a long 30 minutes. Will instructs her to “take her medicine, and tell her truth.” He is so f*cking wise.

Jordyn says that Sunday night she went to a bar after dinner with friends. She was minding her own business, but Tristan was there. She says that normal LA culture is to go to someone’s house after being out at a bar. That night, it was Tristan’s house.

Jordyn says that she was hanging out with Tristan, but they never left the party to go to a private area. She says that there were other girls around, and she wishes they would hold themselves accountable, but she doesn’t want them to go through what she’s going through.

She is adamant that she never gave Tristan a lap dance, but she can see why people would say they were “getting cozy.” Her “butt was never sitting on him,” but she had her legs over his legs. Jesus girl, we need a crime scene reenactment.

She is firm in her denial that anything intimate happened between her and Tristan, but she acknowledges that someone in her position shouldn’t be hanging out with Tristan like she was. She admits that she didn’t leave until 6AM, but says she was with other people the whole time. She also says that she was drunk, but has never blacked out in her life. Sure, Jan.

BOOM. Jordyn admits that when she was leaving, Tristan kissed her on the lips. There was no passion, but it still happened. This is important.

Later that day, she was talking to Khloé and Kylie about that night, and she says that she was not honest about the actions that had taken place. Even if she’s telling the truth about not hooking up with Tristan, she lied by omission in that moment.

“DID YOU SLEEP WITH TRISTAN.”

“Never. Attach me to a lie detector, whatever it is, I need people to know the truth.”

Now Jada and Jordyn have pivoted, and are talking about how tough they can have it as black women. This is so, so true, and here’s some insight into how this issue has affected our discussion of this scandal as a whole.

Jordyn says that her family can’t go out in public right now, but I dare anyone reading this to tell me what Jordyn’s mom, or brother, or sister look like. I get that she’s probably been unfairly scapegoated in this whole scandal, but her family isn’t that well-known.

Jordyn reiterates that her main mistake that night was going to the afterparty in the first place. Honestly, that’s how most of my nights out go, so I can relate to this feeling.

She says that she told Kylie she was coming to the Red Table today, and that she has reached out to Khloé to repeat that there was no malicious intent in what happened.

Jada reminds her that there’s a lot of pain happening, so it might take many attempts, and also a good deal of time, for people to feel safe and open enough to let her back in. This is how I feel every time I say I’m never drinking again.

The first question from the fish bowl is if this was a publicity stunt. Jordyn simply says “It’s been real.”

She says that she did apologize to Khloé, but has not been able to see her in person yet. For the third time, she offers to take a lie detector test, even though all those SVU marathons taught me that polygraphs aren’t really that reliable.

Jordyn says that it’s hurtful how many people who she considered friends have taken to social media to bully her. She also says that 90% of the people who have spoken out as sources aren’t her real friends.

AND WE’RE DONE. 

So here’s what happened: Jordyn was adamant that she and Tristan never hooked up. She acknowledged that she did things she shouldn’t have, but she never did anything with malicious intent. She’s reached out to Khloé and Kylie, but they haven’t been open to sitting down with her yet. Also, I want Jada Pinkett Smith to be my mom.

UPDATE: Khloé has already responded to Jordyn’s interview with the below tweet:

Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!

— Khloé (@khloekardashian) March 1, 2019


“Why are you lying @jordynwoods ??” she writes. “If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!” YEESH. Safe to say Khloé isn’t buying Jordyn’s story.

What do you all think? Do you believe Tristan gave Jordyn a peck on the lips? Or do you think there’s more to this story?

UPDATE #2: Finally, more than a week after the initial scandal broke, we are finally getting an acknowledgment from Khloé Kardashian that Tristan Thompson is equally responsible for what transpired (or didn’t transpire) between him and Jordyn. In a new tweet she fired off, Kardashian wrote:

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. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired,then yes I would address him publicly as well

— Khloé (@khloekardashian) March 1, 2019


“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. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired,then yes I would address him publicly as well,” she said. Completely wrong choice in wording aside, this is officially EXTREMELY messy. We probably will never know the truth of what actually happened.

What do you think? Do you think Jordyn and Tristan hooked up, or it was just a peck on the lips?
