However, things might not be what they seem. Kourtney, 43 years old, is seen in the same black jumpsuit suit she wore when she was photographed out with her husband in Malibu. Travis BarkerTheir children a month later, in January 2022. Although this could have meant that the Poosh founder just repeated an outfit, internet sleuths believe her matching silver nail polish is a different story.

“Her nails are chrome in the episode,” one user pointed out. “In these pap shots, they are as well, chrome … I’m a nail technician, and lemme tell you, chrome chips soo quickly.”

Fans noticed that Skims CEO mentioned the family Christmas cards during the scene, and wondered if she was trying to make it appear like it was shot at the same time as the lawsuit became public.

“Then Kim mentioned the [holiday] photoshoot to convince us it was December … 💀,” another commenter quipped.

The 37-year old founder of Good American recently took to social networking to thank her family and friends for their support.

“This was definitely a tough episode but there’s so much beauty in watching how close my family is,” Khloé wrote via TwitterIn regard to the final. “We’ll always stick together and love one another deeply.”

Some viewers were less impressed and claimed that the show was lacking energy.

“Explains why they were so emotionless about it all,” a fan commented after the episode had aired. “I wish they had stuck to a real timeline rather than jumble it around to have a good final episode. Do better Hulu.”

The Khloé & Lamar alum, for her part, spent most of the final season 1 installment hiding from the cameras to process the betrayal but made a brief appearance to explain that she was embarrassed to be dealing with things so publicly.

“I find out what Tristan is doing with the rest of the world,” Khloé explained in a confessional during the episode. “A courtesy would be not doing it, but fine, if you do it, you’re not even going to give me a heads-up before the rest of the world? It’s just an additional slap in my face. It’s humiliating.”

31-year-old Thompson’s lawsuit first came to light in December 2021 and Us WeeklyLater that month, Nichols (31 years old) confirmed that he had given her birth. The athlete later confirmed his paternity via social media in January, issuing a public apology to Khloé, who he was still dating when his son was conceived. (Khloé and the athlete also share daughter True, 4.)

Prior to The Kardashians premiere in April, the Revenge Body author told Variety that Thompson’s transgressions wouldn’t be a “long drawn out situation” on the series but also wouldn’t be avoided. “We try as a family to protect the privacy of our partners or significant others, since they didn’t really sign up for this; we did,” she said in March. “But if something is really public like this was, it would be strange if Tristan was a part of the show and then all a sudden he disappears and we don’t ever talk about it.”
