Khloé Kardashian appeared on the season 16 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and all seemed well in her relationship with Tristan Thompson, but we know now it's the calm before the storm. While viewers thought that the famous family would kick off the new season on Sunday, March 31, by addressing the cheating scandal between the basketball star and Jordyn Woods, it looks like they're leaving the drama for a later episode.

More from MamáLatinas: A timeline of Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship

While most of the episode titled "Chicago Loyalty" focused on Kanye West and his relationship with his old friend, Rhymefest, there was also a quick recap of how things were going in the Kardashian-Thompson household. Khloé gushed about how well things were going with the Cleveland Cavaliers star and their baby girl True.

Khloé said things were going "great" between her and her beau at the time.

When this season taped, it was following the first cheating scandal that took place in April 2018. Photos of Tristan making out and getting cozy with multiple women surfaced just days before his daughter with Khloé, True Thompson, was born. Khloé eventually forgave him and took him back.

"I have come to a place in my life where I am super comfortable. It's been a few months. Me and Tristan are great," she says in the clip, and she said how much she loved being True's mom. "I am loving being a mommy. It's bittersweet. I love seeing every milestone with her but I feel like she grows--like in one week she's a complete different baby."


Viewers reacted to what Khloé said on social media.

It was reported in February 2019 that Khloé had ended her relationship with the basketball player after he was involved with her little sister Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods. So knowing all that we know now, it's so difficult to hear that Khloé thought things were going well in their relationship, when they really weren't. 


Tristan appeared in another clip during the show.

Khloé was on FaceTime with her then-boyfriend while she was shooting a scene during a photo shoot for her clothing line Good American. They were being playful as he watched her get spray-tanned on her abs. He called her "babe," and she ended the call saying, "I love you."

The episode also focused on Kourtney Kardashian dealing with anxiety after her breakup.

Khloé was shown trying to cheer up her big sister after Kourtney split from her model boyfriend Younes Bendjima. The sisters headed to Palm Spring for a girls' weekend to try to take Kourt's mind off the breakup and to celebrate her being single. 


The famous sisters got together and did the same for Khloé.

This time the goal was to show Khloé a good time while she dealt with her heartbreak. A week after news broke about Tristan and Jordyn's hookup, the sisters took off for a girl's trip and to show their sister Koko some love following the devastating situation. Kylie was also there, showing that her loyalty was with her big sister and not her former best friend, Jordyn.

If you missed the episode, watch a recap below.

Kim and Kanye announced to their family that they were having a fourth child, Scott Disick confronted Kris Jenner for neglecting her mom MJ, and so much more happened! We can't wait for the rest of the season to unfold.
