It's been four months since Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian broke up, and Blac's stock is plummeting precipitously due to her sudden lack of any real connection to the family that made her a household name.
Even before she started hooking up with Rob, most of Blac's tabloid headlines were Kard clan-related, as the press loved Chyna's feud with Kylie Jenner that stemmed from the teen reality star's relationship with Tyga.
These days, Kylie and Tyga are no longer together, which means Blac has no reason to continue meddling in the affairs of the Jenners and Kardashians.
Sure, she still has a child with Rob (and make no mistake, Blac plans to cash in on Dream Kardashian as soon as she's legally permitted to do so), but their co-parenting relationship is going surprisingly smoothly.
That's all well and good, but amicable exes don't score reality shows, and Blac is likely aware that her window of opportunity is closing.
Which may help explain why she's growing desperate in her efforts to introduce a bit of drama in her life.
The video above shows Blac and Tyga partying in the same club.
That might not be so interesting on its own, but rumors about Blac and Tyga have getting back together have been circulating non-stop lately, and some fans are taking this as visual confirmation.
Fortunately, we probably won't have to speculate for much longer.
If these two are engaging in any sort of ex sex, you can bet they're doing so with their careers in mind.
Separately, they're D-listers at best.
But together, maybe Blac and Chyna are almost as favor as a more well-established Kardashian?
We're sure some agent or network exec has done the calculus.
Does Blac plus Tyga equal one Jonathan Cheban or one Malika Haqq?
Probably not, but a reunion would likely attract the ire of both Kylie and Rob, which would at least briefly put Blac and Tyga back on the cover of a tabloid or two.
It's strange to think there are people who look at the world that way, but reality TV is big business.
And Kardashian is the biggest name in the industry.
Obviously, it's an incredibly cynical move if Blac and Tyga are really faking their romance so that they can work their way back into the lives of Rob and Kylie.
But with how much they stand to gain, they'd also be foolish not to try something like that.
