The late-night show host brought up the delicate subject of her failed relationship with basketball player Tristan Thompson, and he tried to understand why does she have a weakness for professional ballers.


“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” scheduled a five-episode run in Las Vegas from April 1-5, featuring a list of deluxe guests to appear at the Zappos Theater inside the Hollywood Resort & Casino, and the Kardashian’s had to be part of it.

Kourtney, 39, Kim, 38, and Khloé, 34, walked on stage for their interview with Kimmel, and they discussed some of the reality TV stars current issues, and Khloé’s poor choice of men was addressed.



“I do want to ask about this character you had a baby with. Is it time to stop dating basketball players?” the 51-year-old asked Khloé, referring to her controversial relationship with ex Tristan Thompson, who cheated on her while she was expecting his baby.

“I like what I like, what can I say?” she replied after trying to figure out whether the audience’s cheers was an affirmative or negative answer to Kimmel’s question.

Wondering if there was something about the sport that attracted her, the TV host went on to ask her if she actually was a fan of basketball or had even played it herself.


“I don’t like to play basketball, I just like to observe basketball.”

Despite not promising to change her taste in men for the time being, Khloé did say that she should have listened to her grandmother’s advice when she told her she would do better dating “accountants, or something like that.”


Before her relationship with Thompson, Khloé was married to NBA player Lamar Odom, from whom she divorced in 2016 following multiple rumors of infidelity on Odom’s part.

James Harden, Rick Fox, and Rashad McCants are other professional ballers Khloé has been romantically linked to. She is also known to date athletes from other disciplines and several rappers.



While Khloé seems to be in a place where she can finally laugh about her past troubles caused by Thompson’s treason, but she and her family went through an emotional ordeal because of it.

In fact, in a very recent promo for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Khloé addressed the issue candidly, complaining about how the exposure made it all worse for her to cope with.

"It just sucks it has to be so public. I'm not just a TV show. Like, this is my life," the mother-of-one told to the camera while at the show’s “confession boot.”


63-year-old momager Kris Jenner also opened up about the controversy that involves Thompson having an affair with Kendall Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods, in her recent appearance at On Air With Ryan Seacrest.

“First of all, I pray about it,' the matriarch mogul said. I really do. I find that, you know, just the spiritual side of me has to kick in because otherwise, you know, I feel like I wouldn't survive,” Kris said.
