Season 17 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on Sunday and showed us all what it was like for Khloé Kardashian to decide whether or not to invite Tristan Thompson to their daughter True's first birthday party in April. Keep in mind that Khloé had not seen Tristan since he allegedly cheated on her with Jordyn Woods in February, and she admits on camera to still having "so many raw emotions" toward him. How could she not?

Still, regardless of the pain he has caused Khloé, is it really fair to keep Tristan from being at True's birthday party? If he wasn't invited, True would miss out on having her father there. If he was invited, Khloé would have to plaster a smile on her face to mask the pain.

It also sucks that Tristan is the one who made such a mess of their relationship, yet Khloé is the one who is expected to be the bigger person. In the end, Khloé made the decision that she thought was best for her daughter.

Everybody had an opinion, including Auntie Kiki.

It was definitely not an easy decision for Khloé to make because, either way, she was damned. Damned if she didn't invite Tristan and damned if she did. It also didn't help that everyone had an opinion about it, especially Kim Kardashian, who was very against Tristan being invited to the party because she felt that everyone would be more focused on what was going on between Khloé and Tristan than on celebrating True's birthday.


The best advice came from grandma Kris.

Perhaps the best bit of advice came from Khloé's mom, Kris Jenner. “Nobody wants to be left out of the memories that are made,” Kris told Khloé. “I am not going to tell you what to do with Tristan because those feelings are still really raw, I am just asking you to be a little easier.” But the part that really hit the nail on the head is when Kris said, "Hopefully when True looks back at all the pictures, she’ll see both of her parents there having a good time."


Tristan was invited, and he did show up.

Khloé ended up inviting Tristan. It may have been incredibly uncomfortable for her, but she did what was best for their daughter. True got to celebrate her first birthday with both of her parents, and that's a beautiful thing.

True's party went well for the most part.

If you look at the party from True's perspective, it was a huge hit. She had fun and was surrounded by her loved ones. Hopefully, she's too young to even notice the drama surrounding her parents. According to Khloé, Tristan tried to kiss her during the party. 

"He was just kind of lingering … He was like, 'So, do you want to grab a glass of wine?'" Khloé told her assistant the day after the party.

"I go, 'This is the problem with you. You can’t just take what you get,'" she added. "Then, this morning he was like, 'Thank you for letting me see True. She looked great, you looked even better.' … Sometimes I feel like if I give an inch, he’ll take a mile and take my kindness for weakness."


And there was even more drama.

The basketball star had a little confrontation with Kanye West at the party. Viewers got to see a heated conversation between the two, but the footage had no audio. According to Kanye, Tristan was pissed that the family used Kanye's song "Runaway" in a promo.

“He felt like we were using my music to reinforce his narrative,” Kanye said. Oh well, it wouldn't really be a Kardashian party without some drama, would it?
