Jordyn Woods' Red Table Talk interview was dignified, regretful, and quite believable

"I may have done something wrong but whatever I did, I don't think I deserve this."

It feels like months since the Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods cheating scandal first kicked off - and it probably feels like even longer for Jordyn herself.

For the past 12 or so days, the 21-year-old has received death threats. She has been called a whore and a home-wrecker. She's been advised to stay in her house, afraid to look at her phone, and ostracised by the people she thought would be part of her family forever.

Nobody knew for sure exactly what happened that night, but they did know one thing - if anything went down between Jordyn and Tristan, there was two of them involved.

And yet, we all focused on Jordyn. Of course we did. She's Kylie's best friend. She's got nine million followers on Instagram. She's interesting. Tristan isn't.

But she's also a young woman who's been absolutely dragged for filth for the past week or so. And Tristan? Well, he hasn't received even a quarter of the shit that she has.

In her first interview since the whole debacle started, Jordyn admitted that she shouldn't have been in Tristan's home.

She said that she knew what it must have looked like for her to have her legs "laying right over his." She said that she understood why people thought they were getting a bit "cosy."

She told Jada Pinkett Smith that she takes full responsibility for what happened, that she takes the blame - even if she, arguably, shouldn't.

"On the way out, he did kiss me," she admitted. "No passion, no nothing, he just kissed me. It was like a kiss on the lips. No tongue kiss, no making out, nothing."

"I don't think he's wrong either because I allowed myself to be in that position. I was like, that didn't just happen.

"I got in the car and I was like, no that didn't happen. I was more so in shock. Like let me just pretend like this didn't happen."

And really, who among us hasn't been (or at least knows someone who has been) involved in a similar enough situation?

One where you were a bit drunk, a bit loose, and ended up back somewhere you shouldn't have been, with people you shouldn't have been with.

A situation you try to pretend didn't happen, feel immense guilt over, and know you've done something wrong. A situation where hindsight is everything.

We've all been in one. The only difference here is that the whole world was watching when Jordyn Woods found herself in it.

"They're putting their focus on a young black woman who made a mistake," she said, "and a mistake that is not worthy of crucifixion."

"I may have done something wrong but whatever I did, I don't think I deserve this."

Khloe has since responded to the Red Table Talk interview.

Within an hour of it being shared online, she declared that Jordyn was the reason why her family had split up, and condemned the 21-year-old for speaking out.

Unfortunately for Jordyn (and anybody else who's absolutely done with all of this) the saga is far from over.

There'll be more reactions, more clap backs, and more reasons to point the finger and place blame.

But Jordyn's interview was solid. She was dignified, she was regretful, and she was totally believable.

Whether she's actually telling the whole truth or not is anybody's guess, but she's told her story, given her side, and taken full responsibility for a situation that isn't entirely her fault.

She's the one taking the brunt of the blame for this. And her response, whether you want to believe it or not, should be worth something.
