Khloe Kardashian and NBA star Tristan Thompson are expecting a baby together. The couple is said to be “madly in love,” according to US Weekly.

An insider tells the magazine that Khloe and Tristan’s love is “infectious.”

“They are madly in love with each other. They are so happy and want to spend all their time together,” says the insider.

Us Weekly broke the news Tuesday that the 33-year-old reality TV star and her 26-year-old beau are expecting a baby.

This is new territory for Khloe, a Love Addict who has a history of failed relationships with men.

Khloe chases the highs of Dopamine, a brain chemical that controls love and lust in humans.

Dopamine is at the center of nearly every sexual attraction. Without Dopamine, our sexual interests would be non-existent. Dopamine is the key to our survival.

What is Dopamine?

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that stimulates the reward centers in our brains and helps us maintain our sexual attraction to one individual.

High levels of Dopamine cause humans to engage in high-risk behavior, such as food binging, drug addiction, bungee jumping or sky diving.

That rush you feel when you drive your Porsche at 150 mph, that’s Dopamine.

All addictive drugs trigger dopamine in the brain. One could argue that being in love is similar to a drug addiction. When we break up, we experience withdrawals just like a drug addict.

That rush you feel when the one you love sends you a text message: that’s Dopamine.

Dopamine is the chemical behind our cravings for sugar, cake, chocolate, sugary beverages, sex, drugs, cigarettes, coffee, video games, etc.

That rush you feel when you think about someone or something that brings you pleasure: that’s Dopamine.

You get a bigger rush of Dopamine when you eat high-calorie, high fat, high carbohydrate foods than you do when you eat low-calorie vegetables. That’s because vegetables don’t trigger Dopamine.

Dopamine Fades

The problem with Dopamine is it eventually wears off and fades away. Once Dopamine fades, so does sexual interest in the same partner.

That’s because consistently high levels of Dopamine raises blood pressure, causes rapid heart rates and leads to high-risk behavior that is not conducive to survival.

God in His infinite wisdom created a Dopamine cut off switch that kicks in when we experience too much passion for a prolonged period of time.

In drug addicts, the Dopamine cut off switch drives them to seek higher doses of cocaine or heroin to reach higher highs and turn the Dopamine switch back on.

But in relationships, once the Dopamine is switched off, it tends to stay off.

There is an instant lack of sexual interest that usually kills relationships. Men and women usually lose interest in their partners and seek a new source of Dopamine: which means they move on to someone else.

This is what happened to talk show maven Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin Hunter. They still love each other, but his sexual interest in her is non-existent. He found a new source of Dopamine Supply in another woman.

This is what will eventually happen to Khloe and Tristan — probably within the next 6-12 months.

But Wait, There’s Good News!

Here’s the good news: if you and your partner are equally yoked, then your love will survive the test of time. Even if the Dopamine fades, your love will let a lifetime.

If you are in a longterm relationship, please share your love stories and tell us your experiences after the Dopamine faded.

    Madly in LUST… You know what I always wondered? Do mixed couples act like they do in porn movies..where the woman screams give me that n****r dick and he say take it you white Bish? I bet they do…adds to the excitement to do taboo shyt like that…

  • Li

    after watching these Kardashian women….I must say they know how to get a man and make him fall in love with them.

  • ebonics

    It’s simple. He’s either gay, or she put a spell on him.. he looks mad zesty to me, sweeter than bear meat.

  • Ebony Starr

    Is that why they refer to drugs as “Dope”?

  • Renee26

    Well after 10 years with the side piece I’m sure his dopamine has faded with her too

  • Renee26

    Lol probably so…those yt bih’s swear they get a pass to use the N word once they get some black dack. This could be why

  • Coy little wink

    When the dopamine/passion fades…aren’t u supposed to role play or something…I think its called WORK ?

    But when it fades but u are yoked properly u stay… that’s real love? Or WORK?

    I mean u said all that Auntie but I still got questions…

  • ebonics

    I think they are witches… look at their mama, she looks like pure evil. Every man they touch seems doomed once they finished with em.

  • You Could Never

    He found a new source of Dopamine Supply in another woman.

  • Tammie Reed

    He fine, just too damn tall for me! I just DO NOT like men that tall lol.

  • Noirluv45

    “Here’s the good news: if you and your partner are equally yoked, then your love will survive the test of time. Even if the Dopamine fades, your love will let a lifetime.”

    This can’t happen if he’s plunging his tool into multiple women’s ink, right? If not, then cheating interferes with the above.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I wonder does she use the same baby voice she used when she sunk Lamar into the sunken place. Does she call him Tristy or tristy cakes?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile… Yt men say that ish too but thats none of my business lol….

  • cherrypie

    my guy is 6’6 and I’m 5’3 but I love tall men. Tristen just looks like a straight up cornball kinda dude. Like someone said above or below – he has no sex appeal AT ALL

  • NicoleZee

    For real??? I thought ALL women preferred taller men. I’ve dated short men, even made a baby with one, but I prefer taller dudes, they’re sexier, depending on how their face looks. Tristan looks too boyish for me. Somehow, I hope my son takes after my grandfather in height since both me and his dad are short :(! My granddad was about 6’2″ and very handsome, and my grandma was very short like me, I’m 5’1″!!

    Kourtney stayyy busting out babies lol…her a** dont need no more kids and the other model one is the only one that seems to be somewhat normal IMO but they all like black dudes except Kourtney

  • TheOwley

    NFL sucks in general. NBA too. Haven’t watched a game and won’t. Will not go down the road for a game either. I thought I was going to die without it. Wrong. I am reading books bought but never read. That $300 will get me a nice new vacuum cleaner.

  • NicoleZee

    Where is your guy from and what is his ethnicity??? I learned that height can also depend on your ethnicity and what part of a particular country you’re from. I love the talls too because I am a shorty!

  • NicoleZee

    Interesting. When used to refer to drugs, I thought dope only referred to cocaine or crack, not weed or meth or anything else.

  • bashi

    Yes she’s does that baby voice keeps the coons in line lol ?

  • Reina1718

    When isnt she madly in love?? She looks at all them dudes the same…potential husband…she been loving rappers & basketball players, throwing them bday parties, buying them all gifts…she been thirsty

  • Ebbie U.

    She’s always in love. She stays in “your name goes here” love smh

  • PLEASEDontTellMe
  • Tammie Reed

    I just like them taller than me but NOT super tall like basketball players… eww! I dated a guy from the Cavs once back in the day and I would get nauseous at how big his hands and feet were. It turned me off, its just NOT my thing lol.

  • Tammie Reed

    As much as I despise dudes that tall, my son is 17 and 6’3″ already! Me and my hubby like wtf happened here? My hubby is only 5’8″ and I’m 5’5″. Then I did some family research and found out my granddad was 6’7″ never met him though, he died before I was born lol.

  • cherrypie

    Girl, i know. Its nothing like climbing that ladder lol. He’s black. We both are. He’s from Michigan

  • Tammie Reed

    She must like the thrill of newness then when it wears off she’s on to the next one! How she finds dudes to date her, I have NO clue. She has been recycled so many times in the sports arena but dudes so thirsty they will date her anyway knowing her past. Good for her maybe she will go away after the baby and sit her entire ass down! Tired of that WHOLE family damn!

  • EMILY POST

    Always amazing how Liberal elite media views non black women when they have out of wed lock children and take wealthy athletes away from pregnant ladies. I love the way they try to sugarcoat whorish skank behavior when the woman is white but if she were black.. She would be every name under the sun.

  • Passion

    Yep, anyone who gets with these trash cans always end up in the garbage dump.

  • NicoleZee

    Oh! But most men have gross feet when you think about it. Even men that have never played a sport have bad feet. Completely gross, men should always keep their socks on. I remember this guy my relative used to date, he had huge bubble sized corns on EVERY toe, he was obese, but not athletic. I remember dating a guy that had half of some of his toenails missing, like how do you have a full toe and the toenails are half grown. Huh??? I really commend podiatrists that can stomach bad feet! Ick!

    Khloe was just screwing Lamar Odom, James Harding, French Montana, Trey Songs, and probable several others we don’t know about , that wasn’t publicized, and probably raw not too long ago. You can tell her current victim is the epitome of a dumb jock, for not long into their so-called relationship he is now also hitting the beast raw. This decade can easily be compared to the 80’s, everything is about glamour, luxury this or that, drugs galore, Trump is prominent( hated to throw him in there but there is relevance , he was a big fixture in the 80’s) blatant homosexuality, etc. Then mid 80’s to late 80’s what happened AIDS, we can be sure to expect the pestilence rates to climb at top rate speed. Not being a downer , just observant!

  • stav

    As was everyone she was just screwing under the guise of it being a relationship.

  • Ryan

    I can’t get over these negros mating with a sasquatch. Unnatural. That whole family must use roots.

  • Yashara Bat Orion

    if they in love why does rumor have it that he’s still seeing his baby mama?

  • cherrypie

    Yeah its crazy how genetics are. Every women is different. I just like looking up at his tall ass and him bending down to kiss me lol

  • Tammie Reed
  • Tammie Reed

    My hubby has very nice feet and bow legs so…………………..I used to own a nail salon back in the day in Cleveland and when I first started dating my husband I asked to do his feet just to see, I was pleasantly surprised!

    I always start with feet first then I move my way up lol. He has very nice teeth as well. Not one damn cavity, me on the other other hand smh!

  • Malcom Flex

  • KA

    LOL!

  • NicoleZee

    Hmm, maybe Cleveland still has some nice looking clean men then! These other cities suck. I can’t tell you the number of gross men with bad hygiene that have approached me, and I’m the exact opposite. I always make sure my hygiene is on point, as well as my health. It’s an epidemic Ms. Tammie, every man it seems is gross and needs some type of “help”. Be glad you are married and not out here dating anymore. Most men look for someone to use. The last guy I dated needed a place to stay, and got upset when I wouldn’t help him get a place to live since he was tired of staying with his family. And then….I actually met a good looking guy but he needed shelter too and only wanted sex. I’m done!!! I’ll just raise my little boy and adopt a bunch of cats!!! LOL!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    He’s the girl, and they are the perfect couple! Being who they are (their popularity), there is an endless supply of black men who will bed or wed one of them Kardashians, but how real or how long it will last, and at what cost (Lamar, Tyga, Kanye) is a coin toss!

  • KA

    He is into him and she is into him and desperate. It works LOL!

  • Goddess™

    I agree…I agree with you Em! They had a field day with Black Chyna…calling her every name under the sun.

  • Goddess™

    Okayyy…?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Whew! Funni, and so true…this is what self-centeredness (vanity, ego, narcissism etc.) and desperate looks like! Thanks for the description!

  • KA

    Yeah, I was trying not to use the “n” word LOL

  • Tammie Reed

    I didn’t say that there were some still there lol. I’m sure its worse now. I don’t live there anymore but I feel you! It was slim pickings when I lived there and was in my dating days but I always tried to travel. Most men there want you to take care of them and depend on you if you had a little something. I got lucky and had very good grades in h.s. and went to college and thats when I got to see there was more to life.

    The lick in Cleveland for men is to find a decent girl that is on section 8, gets food stamps and she’s also a hairstylist or something getting paid under the table. Thats ballin to them. #HoodRich

    Then he’s usually a barber with a record and a few baby mamas or something like that. They ball off the system and the girls recycle no good ass guys and fight over them. Their fun is going to the bar every weekend or a cabaret where you bring your own bottle, thats the legist of it. Most of my friends back there are STILL doing the same exact thing not much.

    I always hated living there and their crab in the barrel mentality they have. As old as my mom is, she is on her 3rd marriage and takes care of her man too! He has NO job and never has worked, just odds n ends, I don’t get it but thats her. Its an industrial town and a lot of hard working people there but they don’t do much but what is required. (Not all but most I have came across or grew up around). I couldn’t take it anymore and moved! I try not to go home unless I absolutely have to but yeah its not for the faint at heart.

    In an interview she said that when she was with Lamar she was “fake trying to get pregnant?”

    3 of these kardashians are expecting??? Lawd it’s going to be a long winter. We’re gonna have to hear about this every day.
    Somebody check on Kourtney before she come up in here talking bout she pregnant too.
    Nevertheless chirrun are a blessing. Congrats to them.

  • Dahl

    Whyyyyyyy??????

  • NicoleZee

    It seems to be the same everywhere, let the women tell it. And even when I have traveled to other countries, I never wanted to get involved with anyone because long distance relationships are just dumb and don’t make sense. I lived in Lansing for a few years and it’s similar to what you said Cleveland is. Atlanta is my hometown and I moved back here years ago, but the men here are no different either. WTF??? Yes, Atlanta has more companies that can give you more job opportunities and more income, but I don’t think any city is better than the next as far as finding a mate goes. Most Atlanta men seem to be married, gay, or both! Pickings are slim around the world it seems. I’ve met several women that are nice ladies and they just want a good guy, but sadly, I think focusing on finding someone is a waste of time. I just say focus on yourself and be the best you that you can be. Maybe love will find some people, or maybe not, either way, we all have lives to finish so being depressed or distraught over being alone or lonely does no one any good. Being alone isn’t a bad thing, but I think it’s the loneliness that drives people into having mental health problems. However, settling for someone you really don’t want just to fill that void is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. I had to learn that the hard way. I refuse to settle for someone’s husband, a woman beater, cheater, or someone who is bat shit crazy and needs to be institutionalized just to have someone! No way, no thanks!

  • Tammie Reed

    My relationship isn’t perfect either, its just hard all the way around. Married people want to be single, single people want to be married, you have to weigh the odds. I don’t have the answers either and Atlanta is not all of that either i understand about the dating life here too but atleast its nice weather here, lots to do and a better environment for my kids. Wherever you go, you will have challenges its just life. I try to be happy and live my life to the fullest, travel, meet people and try new things, treat people like I want to be treated and thats all I can do.

  • disqus_MNq5Mrn4CF

    yes. .that was her ‘story’ this summer. lying ass. This after James Harden and Rashad Mccants both said that basically she was no good luck charm. She needed sympathy so all of a sudden she was faking with her Lammy.

  • Lolly Asher

    The kardashians are breeders. People always say what do they do. They multiply.

    Because two women are equally stupid enough to continue to sleep with a man who cares only for himself.

    Yes, Atlanta always has great things going on. I love just getting out and strolling with my little fellow, he loves the park and we both adore midtown.

I go to bed every night thanking God for him and wake up every night morning doing the same. And he is the same way. He is the best looking most attractive and funny manliest best provider all around good man I know and I can’t even think of ever being with another!!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Or maybe you could just with them the best?

    He left the woman who was pregnant with his FIRST child so her chances are not that good. Still waiting to see which one cries miscarriage? That would be the one carrying Kim’s baby. Just saying.
