Being on ‘Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian’ Isn’t As Easy as It Looks Trainer Gunnar Peterson Says

Getting a revenge body is harder than it looks.

That’s what celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson had to say about being on Khloé Kardashian’s reality show, Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian, where the 34-year-old provides contestants with the tools to better their physical and mental health, acting as a mentor.

Having a personal trainer at the ready along with a nutrition plan may seem like the hard part of a getting a “revenge body” is done but it’s not.

The trainer to the stars is a regular on Khloé Kardashian’s fitness show and says there’s a lot more that goes into it than meets the eye.

“You think that because it’s all laid out for you that it’s going to be easy to execute, it’s not,” Peterson told Page Six. “There’s a lot of discipline and there are a lot of mental games,” he added.

Peterson has trained Kardashian for years and calls himself the “OG” or original guy of the show because he’s participated in all three seasons. Other celebrity clients of his include Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, and Angelina Jolie to name a few.

Contestants face ‘self-doubt’ and ‘self-criticism’

Watching contestants on Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian meet with personal trainers and talk with nutritionists or dieticians may seem like a dream come true like the biggest weight-loss hurdles have been passed because of the tools provided by the show but the contestants are responsible for much more.  

“They’re thrown into what may look like, ‘Oh, cool so I get a trainer, somebody to help me with my diet, this is gonna be great,’…there’s still a lot of work required on the contestants part,” Peterson told the publication.

They face mental challenges throughout their transformation.

“If [the transformation] doesn’t happen the way they envision it happening right out of the gate, then there’s self-doubt and then there’s self-criticism,” he added.

Peterson continued, saying he provides mental support for those on the show as well helping them with the physical training by checking in with contestants.

“You have to remind them, ‘Hey I’m on your team, I’m here for you, I’m your guy, I’m checking in with you just to make sure we stay the course so this becomes routine,’” he said.

So routine, in fact, exercise becomes like taking a shower, he added.

Gunnar Peterson’s advice for staying consistent with workouts

Peterson passed along tips to stay consistent with exercise by thinking of it in another way. “Treat it like a first date,” he said. Another way to think about it? “Like a job interview,” he added.

“You’re not going to cancel those,” he said.

When does Season 3 of ‘Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashianpremiere?

The newest season of Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian premieres Sunday, July 7, at 9/8c on E!.

Expect to see “inspiring” transformations from contestants this season, according to Kardashian, who recently posted a trailer for the show on her Instagram.

“The transformations this season on #RevengeBody are SO inspiring. proud of everyone who was/is on this journey Don’t miss the season premiere July 7 at 9|8c only on E!,” she wrote.

The video for the new season shows one contestant puking during a workout, which their trainer likens to an “exorcism,” while another person expects the experience to be “kind of fun,” including “sippin’ mimosas.” Kardashian is quick to provide a reality check. “This is gonna be really hard,” she said in the video.

Queen Elizabeth Wouldn’t Allow Prince William and Kate Middleton to Get Divorced — Here’s Why

As predicted, the whole Prince William/Rose Hanbury cheating scandal has mostly disappeared over time. With a new royal baby to celebrate and various other royal engagements, plus no hard evidence incriminating the Duke of Cambridge, people have mostly accepted that either the infidelity never happened, or Kate Middleton is choosing to look the other way. In either instance, their marriage seems safe for now.

To see the couple interacting in public and gazing adoringly
at each other in photos, it’s easy to believe that their marriage is stronger
than ever. But there’s a good reason that Prince William and Kate Middleton are
avoiding divorce and it has everything to do with the Duke of Cambridge’s
grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Elizabeth warned Prince William that she had ‘enough’ with royal divorces and he should carefully consider that before proposing. Royal fans speculate that may be one of the reasons he waited so long to propose–and why they’d never split up.

Are Prince William and Kate Middleton breaking up?

There are so many reasons for Prince William to stay
married. The first and foremost is he loves his wife. The pair met in 2002 while
they were both
University at St. Andrew’s. It wasn’t until a few years later,
however, that Kate caught the Prince’s eye while wearing skimpy lingerie during
a charity fashion show.

Their relationship hit a few snags after that, including a
breakup that left fans absolutely devastated. Then the press gave Kate Middleton
the rude nickname “Waity Katie” because Prince William was taking so long to
propose. But as it turns out, he had a good reason to take his time.

The Duke of Cambridge wanted to make a permanent
to his life partner and wasn’t willing to take a gamble on love
if he wasn’t ready. When he did propose to Kate in 2010, he really meant it.

Queen Elizabeth can’t stand how many divorces there are in
the royal family

While the Queen must approve any potential marriage, she does
not hold that same power for divorces. But as head of the Church of England,
she has some say in what happens in the messy aftermath of those royal splits.
And it’s not good.

High profile royal divorces include Queen Elizabeth’s sister, Princess Margaret, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and obviously Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Each took a significant emotional toll and reflected badly on the entire family, especially the scandal with the future King having a not-so-secret affair with Camilla Parker Bowles for years.

The Queen’s goal is avoiding any more divorces during her

There have been lots of happy announcements from the royal
family in the recent
including many weddings, pregnancies, births, baptisms, and other
happy occasions. The aging monarch is no doubt delighted that all the recent
unions have stayed intact.

Again, if Prince William and Kate Middleton wanted to divorce,
they wouldn’t need the Queen’s blessing. But if her comments in the past are
any indication, then they should try to avoid splitting up to stay in the
monarch’s good graces. At least until her reign has ended.

‘Claws’ Welcome to Pleasuredome: Desna and the Girls Find Leverage on the Owners

In Claws, Welcome to Pleasuredome, Bryce convinced Jennifer that Brienne should see her father, E.J. Also, back at the clinic, Bryce, Uncle Daddy, and Toby finally get the first customer for their rehab organization, and it’s Brenda, Jennifer’s mom. The girls also figured out the Lovestones’ secret with the governor, and Desna bought a new place. How did the girls find leverage?

Girls attend unique masquerade party in Welcome to Pleasuredome

While in Joe Dupree’s office, Polly answered the phone and pretended to be Joe. The person confirmed the Lovestones’ car delivery at a fundraiser for the governor. Polly received the address and told Desna, who immediately wanted to crash the party and get leverage on the owners.

It turned out to be a bizarre sex-themed masquerade party hosted by the Lovestones. Ann met a French man who she started a conversation with because she knew he had information. She also ended up sleeping with him, however, thought of her cop on-and-off girlfriend, Arlene the entire time.

The party provided champagne laced with the drug Molly, and after drinking an entire glass, Polly told Joe that he put Penelope’s dead body in their salon. Before Joe could adequately react, Virginia gets thrown out of the party, alongside a talking pig.

While the other girls are making friends, Desna snuck into the governor’s room by pretending to be the woman from Gold Touch Development. Through tazing Trip, all over his body, Desna found out that the governor is getting paid off to build private prisons. The deal is worth millions, and it’s the leverage she needs.

Desna moves into the Lovestones’ office and a new house in Welcome to Pleasuredome

The next day, bright and early, Desna moved into the Lovestones’ office and was sitting there when they arrived. She told them she knows all about their illicit dealings with the governor. Therefore, she wants them to be silent partners while she runs the casino.

Desna also explained that if they do not do what she says, she’s going to tell everyone everything, including the parties they throw. Mac admitted they underestimated Desna and seemed to comply with her rules.

Even though it is slightly above her budget, Desna bought a penthouse on the beach. She invited Dean and Virginia to move in; however, Dean said he’s his own man. Dean brought up Mac Lovestone and how he wants to be friends with him.

Desna warned him again that Mac is not a good man and Dean needs to stay away from him. But Dean called her out, saying she remains around him for the money. Therefore, Dean decided that he wants a friend, so he will continue living in the motel with Virginia, and begin a friendship with Mac.

Roller continues to try to get back with Desna in Welcome to Pleasuredome

Roller has been trying to rekindle things with Desna for all of Season 2 so far. After Desna and Roller killed Clint, they hooked up, and Roller didn’t want to be “friends with benefits” anymore. However, Desna told Roller she needed to focus on herself.

At the beginning of Welcome to Pleasuredome, he came to the casino to ask Polly for advice on getting back with Desna. She said he should fix his “playas ball” theme and dress better and gave him walking lessons. Polly also fitted Roller in a nice tux and taught him how to eat dinner with a lady properly.

While on his way to dinner with Desna, a beautiful girl asked him to help with her car. Roller complied, and when he bent over to check under the hood, masked men grabbed him from behind, covered his face with a towel, and threw him into a van.

Was Queen Elizabeth Really Behind the Royal Feud Between Princes William and Harry?

For months now, rumors of a feud among Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, have been running wild. Fans and news media have been following their every move for quite some time, analyzing all that they do in order to determine as to if it is a result of tension between the two princes.

When Harry and Meghan Markle recently split their household from William and Kate Middleton, rumors of a royal rift reached an all-time high. On Easter Sunday, usually a day of family celebration for the royals, it looked as if the brothers were going out of their way to avoid each other and not have any interaction whatsoever.

Now that Meghan and Harry have welcomed their first son, Archie Harrison, claims of a feud have pretty much died down. However, the question on everyone’s mind is: Why did William and Harry have such a considerable disagreement? Was their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, actually behind the royal feud between her two grandsons?

When did the royal feud rumors start?

The rumors began way back in the fall, and as it turns out, the original claims were not about William and Harry at all. Instead, it was being said that their wives were at odds with each other, with many believing that Kate was having a hard time adjusting to Meghan’s strong personality. Sources said that Meghan and Kate were very “different” people and that they really “did not get along” at all.

Before we knew it, Meghan and Harry announced that they were leaving Kensington Palace to live at a new home in the countryside town of Windsor, further fueling the belief that Meghan and Kate were having problems. When the royal sisters-in-law were seen acting friendly and cordial during an engagement at Westminster Abbey, the rumors were put to rest. However, the focus shifted to Princes William and Harry.

Princes William and Harry were always very close

Growing up close in age, the brothers always had an excellent relationship. They always got along wonderfully, supporting each other as they lived life in the royal spotlight. The two princes suddenly lost their mother, Princess Diana, at a very young age. It appeared as if William and Harry’s relationship got even stronger, as they leaned on each other during one of the most difficult and tragic times of their entire lives.

Prince William was concerned when Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle

Fans couldn’t have been happier when Harry and Meghan began their courtship and eventually married. It seemed to happen fairly quickly, especially in comparison to William and Kate’s relationship. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were together for seven years before announcing their engagement, while Meghan and Harry dated for only two years before deciding to get married. Apparently, William was concerned that the relationship was moving so quickly, and Harry’s feelings were extremely hurt as a result.

Was Queen Elizabeth behind the royal feud between Prince William and Prince Harry?

The last thing that royal fans want is to see any sort of tension between the two princes. The fact that they were arguing at one point raises the question as to if the queen was actually behind it.

Apparently, her majesty issued a warning to both of her grandsons to choose their spouses carefully, as she didn’t want any more divorces in the royal family. Harry’s grandmother was concerned that his relationship with Meghan was moving so fast, and didn’t keep quiet about her feelings. Is Queen Elizabeth the reason why William didn’t approve of Meghan?

It seems that although the feud may have been indirectly caused by the queen’s comment, William was only expressing concern because, like his grandmother, he loves and cares for his brother and that the queen didn’t intentionally cause tension.

‘Big Little Lies:’ Does Jane Chapman Have a Boyfriend?

Jane Chapman recently moved to Monterey Bay and is the single mother of a son, Ziggy. It was revealed that her son is the result of an assault by Celeste Wright’s late husband, Perry. The Wrights have twin boys that Celeste and Jane allowed to meet after Chloe Mackenzie told them they were brothers. Ever since then, Jane has promised not to keep any secrets from Ziggy. However, does Jane have a boyfriend, and is she holding that from her son?

Douglas Smith, the actor who plays Corey, did an interview where he dished about Corey and Jane’s on-screen relationship.** SPOILER ALERT ** This article contains information from Big Little Lies Season 2 Episode 3.

Is Corey Jane Chapman’s boyfriend?

Coffee Shop Tom is gone, and her aquarium co-worker, Corey, is now in the picture. He’s an attractive surfer, who Jane asked if he was “on the spectrum.” The viewers were first introduced to him in the Big Little Lies Season 2 premiere when he referred to Jane being in “The Monterey Five.” In Season 2 Episode 3, The End of the World, Corey and Jane go on a date. Jane finds his random facts endearing, and they go on a walk after dinner.

She then admits to Corey that she has a son, and he immediately asked to meet Ziggy. Jane doesn’t want to introduce Corey to Ziggy as a boyfriend, so they settle on surfing lessons. Corey tries to kiss Jane, but she recoils because her past left her scarred. Realizing Jane must have some trauma, Corey decided to slow dance with Jane in her driveway. Jane accepted his touch and cried silent tears on his shoulder while they embraced.

At the end of the episode, Jane ran into Bonnie Carlson at the beach, where Corey is giving Ziggy surfing lessons. Jane explained to Bonnie that while she likes Corey, he is not her boyfriend yet. Jane continued that she only told Ziggy he is giving her surfing lessons so far. Bonnie also asked if he knew about her past trauma, and Jane admitted she hadn’t told him. Bonnie then encouraged her to open up to Corey.

Douglas Smith “Corey” interview

When Entertainment Weekly asked Smith if it was a good sign that his character wanted to meet Ziggy so soon, he said yes. He thinks it’s better than the “stereotypical” response guys usually give when they after finding out their potential partner already has a child. Smith thinks Corey is very empathetic and can sense Jane has been through something because Corey’s been through therapy.

When asked if the viewers and Jane should trust Corey, he said, “anything is possible,” and everyone has “the propensity for good and bad.” Smith also said he was indeed surfing in the last scene with Ziggy and had been surfing since a child. He said it’s therapy for him, and resetting at the beach is a large part of his life. When asked if Jane tells Corey the Monterey Five secret, he said his character has “high emotional intelligence.”

‘Big Little Lies’ The End of The World: Celeste Wright Misses the War With Perry

Celeste Wright continues to struggle with the death of her husband, while her mother-in-law still refuses to believe Perry could be an evil person. Madeline Mackenzie also has a difficult time understanding why she cheated on Ed, and if they can get this rough patch. What else happens in The End of The World?

Does Celeste miss the war with Perry in The End of The World?

Celeste cannot stop thinking about the positive memories with Perry. Her therapist tells her that she should stop focusing on the good, and remember the abusive times and how he almost killed her. Celeste denied the severity of the issue, and the therapist noticed a scar on her arm. She brushed it off and said it probably occurred when she broke up a fight between the twins. However, her therapist believes she inflicted the pain on herself as a way of getting closer to Perry.

Celeste told Madeline that she was a better mom to her boys when Perry was alive, and often feels deader than him. She found Mary Louise Wright in the bedroom with the twins, watching videos of Perry playing with the boys, and reading to them. Celeste joined them and reminisced before she went to bed and pleasured herself while watching an old video Perry sent her when he was out of town.

Mary Louise sees Perry’s illegitimate son for the first time in The End of The World

Mary Louise stopped by Jane Chapman’s job to ask her if she would submit to a paternity test to establish Perry as the father. She wants proof because she can’t believe Perry would cheat on Celeste, much less rape a woman. However, Jane told Mary Louise she would not do that and returned to work.

Mary Louise later saw Jane and Ziggy getting into their car. Mary Louise looked at Ziggy with joy and pain, because she immediately realized Perry did father the child. Jane saw Mary Louise staring and decided to meet with her the next day.

Mary Louise showed Jane several pictures of Perry as a child, and Jane also noticed how similar they looked at the same age. Mary Louise again asked Jane if she was sure that she didn’t give Perry “a sign,” however, Jane blatantly explained to her that the interaction was not consensual. Still, Mary Louise cannot believe her son is evil or capable of doing something so sinister, but Jane can’t agree with her.

Madeline Mackenzie and Ed’s relationship continues to suffer in The End of The World

Madeline and Ed went to therapy, to try and work through Madeline’s infidelity. The therapist thought Ed’s laid back nature could be mistaken for neglect, however, Ed confirmed that wasn’t the issue. Madeline claimed she didn’t know why she cheated, but the therapist thinks she doesn’t believe in herself because she never went to college.

Madeline explained to Celeste that she walked in on her dad having sex with a woman that was not her mom, and he told her that some things her mom didn’t need to know. Therefore, she always felt like marriage wasn’t to be trusted.

Madeline then ran into Ed at the coffee shop, where he wrapped a conversation with Bonnie Carlson. When Madeline asked him how long he would punish her for, he said as long as he needs and wants. That night, the school gathered the parents to talk about the climate change curriculum that scared Renata Klein’s daughter so much, it pushed her to an anxiety attack.

Madeline made a speech, that mirrored her current relationship woes, and explained kids fear things including climate change and someone shooting their school up. However, their parents always tell them everything’s fine. Madeline ended up breaking down in tears, and ran out of the auditorium, with Ed not following behind her.

She went home and cried in her daughter’s arms, but Ed didn’t return that night. Even though Abigail and Celeste have assured Madeline that Ed won’t leave her, she’s not so sure.

Will Cote de Pablo’s Ziva Appear in ‘NCIS’ Spin-Off Shows?

The likely return of Cote de Pablo‘s Ziva David on NCIS is a coup in more ways than one — especially if the actress tamed the show’s alpha male environment to bring overdue respect to her character. The other side of this potential strategic plot development is de Pablo gaining a lot more power based on the popularity of Ziva.

If this is how NCIS ultimately ends soon, it’s arguably a fitting way to wind up what’s been deemed a possibly toxic environment for the lead actresses going back years. Maybe if de Pablo makes Ziva popular again, she’d be able to wrangle another deal for a prospective/speculative NCIS spin-off show, if not guest appearances on the other spinoffs.

What is ‘NCIS’ really planning for the Ziva character during Season 17?

We’ve bounced the ball back and forth here a few times on whether Ziva will really be returning, is a figment of Gibbs’ imagination, or even if she’s a ghost. Based on the latest information available, it’s a sure bet Ziva really will be back in physical form. Whether it’s as a permanent cast member or just an occasional role for next season, it’s still up in the air.

What a lot of people want to know is whether Ziva’s boyfriend (Michael Weatherly as Tony DiNozzo) will also return. Without him there as the father of Ziva’s child, it’s going to seem unbalanced and a tad forced in the absence.

Writers will have to work around it for now since Weatherly is still tied to CBS’s Bull, despite sexual harassment accusations from Eliza Dushku bringing risk to the fourth season. Although considering Weatherly is on the same network, it seems he could pull off a deal to at least make an NCIS cameo.

Also, with Bull possibly not lasting past this upcoming fourth season, what are the chances of a Ziva/Tony spinoff series ever happening?

The 17th season of ‘NCIS’ might be the primer for a spinoff

No doubt there was some trepidation by de Pablo to return to her role, not knowing what the writers would agree to. Plus, it’s always risky to bring a character back after six years away.

Nevertheless, with de Pablo seemingly working close with the writers to bring a more respectful arc for Ziva, we could see her essentially become a runaway hit all over again. She could dominate the show next season, making it necessary for the producers to create a new spinoff based on the response.

The production team might have been searching for additional spinoff possibilities anyway so they can keep the franchise alive if the main ship sinks and NCIS: New Orleans/Los Angeles ever end. Even if Mark Harmon ultimately wants to stay home and be a normal husband/father/grandfather for the rest of his life, the other cast members can arguably make more NCIS offshoots or spinoff guest appearances worth watching.

Many of the sideline characters have ended up becoming more popular anyway, outside of Harmon/Gibbs still ruling the roost.

The tension and romance in a Ziva-Tony spinoff could be dramatic

Now that we know Ziva was apparently involved in some international espionage, continuing stories like this involving Ziva and Tony could become one of the top cop dramas on mainstream TV. A reunion alone of Tony and Ziva is likely going to happen eventually. Imagine how emotional that’s going to be after six (or maybe seven) years apart.

Let’s not forget when Tony quit NCIShe did so by walking into Gibbs’ basement to announce it. Notice the tie-in with Ziva returning recently to the same basement at Gibbs’ home?

Expanding the adventures of Ziva and Tony on a worldwide scale would make a spinoff show potentially worth watching, albeit more expensive to produce. Along with their romantic chemistry, it could be just what the production team wants. Fitting them into cameos in L.A. and Orleans would further expand their presence.

All anyone can hope for is NCIS sets the proper stage rather than pulls a rug out on fans who probably wouldn’t stick around if Ziva’s story fizzles.

How Many ‘Law & Order’ Shows Are There, and Which Ones Are Still On?

NBC’s Law & Order franchise is one of the most successful and well-known series on TV in the past few decades. Since its first episode in 1990, it has given audiences everywhere a glimpse into the inner workings of the criminal justice system. They even use real-life cases as inspirations for the show’s stories.

For new fans who have not been caught up yet with all the different Law & Order spin-offs, things can seem confusing at first. However, in order to clear things up a bit, let’s look at all the shows that have come out in the franchise and see which ones are still on the air.

1. ‘Law & Order’ (1990 – 2010)

The original Law & Order show premiered almost thirty years ago. The series is set in New York City and follows the New York Police Department as they investigate crimes before the criminals themselves are persecuted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

Law & Order is known for having a revolving door of main cast members. Though there are some actors, such as Steven Hill, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Sam Waterston, who did manage to stay for a very long time.

Fans did not seem to mind most of the cast changes. Despite the changes, Law & Order still won dozens of awards until it was eventually canceled in 2010 after 20 seasons.

2. ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ (1999 – present)

Perhaps one of the most well-known series in the Law & Order franchise is Special Victims Unit (or SVU). It was the first spin-off and premiered in 1999. Unlike the original Law & Order show, SVU focuses mostly on sex crimes as well as abuse against children, especially those that are rather disturbing and horrendous.

Another aspect of SVU that is different from its parent show is the fact that, after many years on the air, it still has an original cast member – Mariska Hargitay (who plays Olivia Benson) – in its lineup. A few other actors, such as Ice-T (who plays Fin Tutuola) have also been on the series for a long time.

In March 2019, SVU was renewed for a 21st season, making it not only the longest-running Law & Order show but the longest-running live-action series in television history.

3. ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ (2001 – 2011)

2001 saw the premiere of the third show in the Law & Order franchise, called Criminal Intent.

As its title suggests, this series focuses on revealing deeper motives that criminals have for committing crimes. The cases here are handled by the Major Case Squad. They often involve high-profile people such as politicians and businessmen.

Unlike the other Law & Order shows, Criminal Intent episodes also tend to end with the criminals admitting their guilt and we don’t often get to see them get persecuted in court.

The series won two awards, though it was canceled in 2011 after ten seasons.

4. ‘Law & Order: Trial By Jury’ (2005 – 2006)

The fourth installment of the franchise is Law & Order: Trial By Jury. This one is special in that it focuses especially on the ‘law’ side of things. It does this by showing viewers the many different aspects of getting a criminal convicted in the courtroom.

Unlike the other shows that start out with the discovery of a crime in the civilian world, Trial By Jury episodes often begins by introducing viewers to the crime via a witness’ account.

Despite having a good turnout for its premiere, Trial By Jury’s ratings dropped in the weeks afterward. One of its main cast members, Jerry Orbach (who played Lennie Briscoe), also suddenly died after having only filmed two episodes.

Trial By Jury was cancelled after just one season.

5. ‘Law & Order: LA’ (2010 – 2011)

The poor performance of Trial By Jury did not stop NBC and the franchise’s creator from releasing yet another series. In 2011, the fifth installment, called Law & Order: LA premiered. Its premise is quite similar to the other Law & Order shows, though now the crimes are set in Los Angeles instead of New York City.

However, viewers didn’t seem to be impressed with LA and the series consistently received very low ratings, which led to its cancellation after less than a year of being on the air.

6. ‘Law & Order: True Crime’ (2017 – hiatus)

The sixth series in the franchise, Law & Order: True Crime, decided to shake things up a bit. Instead of each episode following a different case, this show would follow one case for a whole season. It was named True Crime because the first season dramatized the trials and conviction of real-life brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez.

Even though it follows a famous case that grabbed headlines, the show received poor ratings. After one season, the NBC put True Crime on hiatus with no word about when it will be back on the air.

7. ‘Law & Order: Hate Crimes’ (upcoming)

The last three Law & Order series might have not done as well as those that came out in the past, but NBC still has plans to release more content.

Right now, there is news that the network is working on premiering a new show, Law & Order: Hate Crimes. The new show will feature cases that are discriminatory in nature. It seems to be a fitting topic for the current political climate and is also looking to be following in the footstep of the highly successful Special Victims Unit in focusing on a specific type of crimes.

The exact premiere date of Hate Crimes is still unknown.

Khloé Kardashian Knew What Tristan Thompson ‘Was Capable Of’, ‘Shocked’ by Jordyn Woods

On tonight’s finale episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK), Khloé Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family learned of Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson’s hook-up.

How did the family find out about the cheating scandal?

Khloe Kardashian on Tristan Thompson: She knew ‘what he was capable of’

Sitting down with Scott Disick, 36, and Kourtney, 40, Kardashian said she didn’t feel much at all after Kourtney suggested she let out her feelings or yell and say nasty things.

Scott, ever the one to inject humor into not-so-fun situations said to Kourtney, “Did you learn that in church?”

Still “in shock,” Kardashian calmly sat at the table with Scott and Kourtney looking at her with concerned looks on their faces.

Concerned for Thompson’s safety — he said he may harm himself — Kardashian asked one of Thompson’s friends to check on him. After learning that he was OK, over time Kardashian began to process her feelings.

She told her sisters and mother, Kris Jenner, they all knew “what he [Thompson] was capable of.”

“Look what he did to me at nine months pregnant,” she told them referring to his previous infidelity scandal involving two women at a Washington, D.C., hookah lounge, where he kissed one at fondled another.

As for Woods, Kardashian explained how shocked she was that she was involved. The family would’ve guessed “any other person in the world” would be in this situation before Woods. Overall, Kardashian expressed feeling hurt and betrayed what Thompson and Woods did that night in February of 2019.

Woods reportedly sat on Thompson’s lap, the two “made out,” and Woods didn’t leave Thompson’s home until 7 a.m. the next morning after the party.

Kylie Jenner ‘scared’ of Jordyn Woods

During a conversation between Kylie, Kim, and Kardashian, Woods’s actions in the aftermath were examined along with her actions the night of the hook-up.

Kim highlighted the lack of loyalty Woods showed toward Kardashian while Kylie said Jordyn “scared” her because if she did that to her sister then she’d do it to her.

She added that she had a phone conversation with Woods and expressed exactly how she felt, telling her she was afraid of her and that her actions messed up her family.

She added how bewildered she felt by her former BFF’s ability to wake up the next morning “with a smile” on her face.

Khloé Kardashian wants an apology from Jordyn Woods

One part of Woods’s behavior that bothered Kardashian was that she never received an apology from the 21-year-old model. “Never once has said Jordyn said, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Kim explained that if it were her in Woods’s shoes, she would’ve been “knocking on your door” apologizing over and over immediately after it happened to admit she “f—ed up.”

Kris echoed the same sentiments to Woods when she spoke with her on the phone.

She told her to apologize to Kardashian first because making things right — or as right as they could be — with Kardashian would be the start of repairing relationships with the rest of the family.

We’ll have to wait and see next week during the second half of the Season 16 finale, whether or not Woods apologizes to Kardashian.
