The Kardashians: Khloé Kardashian gives fans something to cry about in season two premiere
We have to give credit where it's due for the first episode of season two.
Given where things left off after the season one finale with Khloé finding out about that Tristan fathered a child with another woman, the show's producers and editors could've dragged the drama out for the entire second season.
Instead, they opted to focus on Khloé's journey to welcoming her second child, and the timeline of events fans of the Kardashian-Jenners have been questioning since the news broke about Tristan's affair, and then the surrogate news months later.
But what the world didn't see amid the media frenzy was how Khloé was dealing with the whole thing. That is, until the premiere of Hulu's second season of The Kardashians.
Apparently, the news broke about Tristan's baby with Maralee Nichols a matter of days after he and Khloé had done an embryo transfer. Not only that, but the 38-year-old Kardashian also dished that the NBA athlete had been adamant about doing the embryo transfer by a certain date.
As it turned out, that push was likely due to the fact he knew when Nichols was due, and he didn't want his secret baby's arrival to happen on the same date as the embryo transfer.
All we have to say to that is "wow," and the tea-spilling didn't stop there.
Khloé gets real about her difficult surrogate experience
Khloé spilled all the tea surrounding the surrogacy in the premiere, which also saw the Good American co-founder in a state of numbness – to be expected with all things considered. All the while momager Kris Jenner and her sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner rallied around her to try and shift the mood from one of "this situation sucks" to that of utter joy for the "blessing" she was about to receive.
It's extremely easy to cast judgement on others – especially the rich and famous. But if there's one thing the season two premiere really drove home, it was that no matter what someone's socioeconomic class is, they're still prone to pain, and their feelings are still valid.
if we're being honest, it was extremely heartbreaking to watch Khloé navigate such a difficult and complex time – one that was supposed to be about love, light, and joy. But as they say, time heals all wounds.
Though we aren't sure this wound is totally healed, we're happy that Khloé won't have to face headlines for the remainder of the season about Tristan's affair or their baby boy who was born on July 28 – and yes, Tristan was there for the birth.
With one storyline taken care of off the bat, there is still a plethora of Kar-Jenner tea to be spilled when The Kardashians returns on September 29 at midnight ET on Hulu.
