In a recent episode of the popular talk show "The View," co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin ignited a debate with her candid remarks on Kylie Jenner's budding relationship with actor Timothée Chalamet. Griffin expressed skepticism about the longevity of the romance, suggesting that it might just be a fleeting phase for Jenner. Drawing parallels with Kim Kardashian's past relationship with "Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson, Griffin remarked, "Both of her sisters, or at least Kim, rebounded with a scrawny white guy and was perfectly happy for a little bit, so it may just be a rebound."
The backdrop to this discussion is the recent news of Jenner's split from Travis Scott, the father of her two children, Stormi and Aire Webster. The separation reportedly took place either during the holidays or in the early days of January.
Sara Haines, another panelist on the show, offered a more optimistic perspective. She highlighted that Jenner and Chalamet are of the same age and might share many common interests. Contrasting Jenner's current choice with the family's history of dating rappers and athletes, Haines noted that the cosmetics mogul was "breaking with the family type."
However, the conversation took a sharp turn when Joy Behar weighed in with her critique of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Behar didn't mince words, stating, "Kylie Jenner and the whole Kardashian family do not have the vibe of being brilliant." She further added, "All they care about is plastic surgery and their big behinds. It's not like a big intellectual group of people."
Whoopi Goldberg, the show's moderator, was quick to defend the Kardashian-Jenner family from Behar's scathing comments. In a pointed response, she said, "Okay, if you have enough time to sit in judgment of other people's relationship you have too much d--- time on your hands."
Outside the heated discussions on "The View," the romance between Jenner and Chalamet has been the talk of the town. The duo reportedly met in January and were first linked together in April. While they haven't publicly commented on their relationship status, they were seen getting cozy at the U.S. Open men's finals earlier this month.
As with any topic discussed on "The View," the co-hosts' opinions on Jenner and Chalamet's relationship have sparked a flurry of reactions, both in agreement and dissent, from fans and viewers alike. Only time will tell if Griffin's prediction about the relationship being a mere "rebound" holds true.
