In George Orwell’s classic novel 1984, protagonist Winston Smith is tasked with literally erasing and rewriting the past as part of his work for a government agency known as the Ministry of Truth.
We wouldn’t go so far as to say that Khloe Kardashian was inspired by Orwell, but she is living her best techno-dystopia life by digitally erasing all traces of her douche bag baby daddy.
In other words, Khloe’s basically the head of the Ministry of Tea, Sis.
As we reported earlier this week, Keeping Up With the Kardashians suffers from major production lag time, which means on the latest episodes of the show, Khloe is still dating Tristan Thompson.
So you can imagine how it might be painful for Khloe to watch the latest installments and endure painful reminders of her disastrous relationship.
Fortunately, it seems she has two methods for sparing herself unnecessary pain:
1. She doesn’t watch the show anymore.
2. And as a precaution in case she stumbles across a rerun while channel surfing, she’s had Tristan’s cheating face blurred out of recent episodes.
Yes, a scene in Sunday night’s episode featured footage that was shot by Khloe and showed Tristan holding baby True.
"Are you flirting with your daddy?" Khloe cooed, removing any doubt as to the identity of the baby-holder — whose face had obviously been blurred in post-production.
"@khloekardashian why’s Tristan’s face blurred out in all the pics??! #KUWTK" asked one fan on Twitter.
"Wait? It is!?!?? I did not even notice that," Khloe responded, hilariously playing dumb.
"I don’t know #KUWTK well, you obviously know who it is LOL so I don’t know what the point of that is. I’ll find out."
"They blurred his face in the picture," another follower pointed out.
"We obviously didn’t do anything. He might not have signed a waiver to show those images," Khloe responded.
"Why would I want to blur his face? I’m not hiding his identity LOL #KUWTK"
When a third fan asked, "Isn’t there a paper you have to sign in order to be shown on the show? maybe it’s that?? lmao," Khloe replied, "Yes there is!"
Okay, so Khloe is arguing that Tristan didn’t sign the necessary release forms and producers were unable to use his likeness?
We’re not buying it.
For starters, we doubt those documents have to be signed for every individual episode, and why would Tristan object to footage of him holding his daughter being used on TV?
Whatever the case, this whole charade will be coming to an end soon.
A teaser for the remainder of the season reveals that the Tristan-Jordyn Woods cheating scandal will feature prominently in future episodes.
