There are a lot of people out there in the world today who know about celebrities and their happenings and their whereabouts, but I’m not one of those people. So when I hear that Tristan Thompson is embroiled in some drama with his girlfriend (or ex-girlfriend? don’t know) Khloe Kardashian, all I can do is shrug.
I get that having encyclopedic, but ultimately useless, knowledge of NBA players is just as pointless as having vast knowledge of celebrities. I am both the pot and the kettle in this situation and I am blacker than a coal mine at midnight. But I don’t even know who Khloe Kardashian is, other than she’s a “Kardashian”, but I don’t even know what being a “Kardashian” means either.
I think Kim Kardashian is her mom, but I don’t know anything else. Is Khloe an actor? A TV star? Does she possess exceptional beauty? Did she make…ahem…a “fornication tape”? Is a “fornication tape” rumored to exist? Is she only famous because of her drama with Tristan Thompson or was she famous before all of that happened? I thought about going to look up info about her but I don’t want Google/the NSA to think that I’m some kind of vapid celebrity junkie, so I didn’t. That’s why I have to make all these guesses.
Now that I think about it, I don’t know if I even have the correct Kardashian in mind because I know there are multiple. Hopefully I got the right one. I wish I could Google this but I can’t.
Whatever drama does or doesn’t exist between her and Thompson is, apparently, irrelevant now because Thompson is playing better than he has in a long time. If there’s a “LeBron Effect”, this dude definitely seems like he wasn’t benefiting from it at all.
