So Who Is Heather Sanders, Kylie Jenner's Other Best Friend? - Trendinggistsonly

You won't have to wait until the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashiansto find out on all the latest drama in the Kardashian-Jenner world—just look on social media. Earlier this week, news brokethat Jordyn Woods, Kylie Jenner's best friend, allegedly hooked up with Tristan Thompson, Khloé Kardashian's boyfriend and the father of their daughter, True.

A lot has happened since the news broke: Khloé and Tristan have called it quits; the family reportedly completely cut off Jordyn; and Jordyn broke her silence on the drama at a press event for her new Eylure lash collection, thanking her fans for "coming out and supporting me through everything that’s going on."
But one person who has kept mum through all this is Kylie, who hasn't comment on the drama unfolding. Kylie is reported to be privately conflicted over whether or not Jordyn, her best friend who lived with her, will be permanently cut out of her life. As a source told People, Jenner was so close to Jordyn, she has "basically lost part of her world."
However, TMZ did report that Kylie was out and about in Calabasas with her other best friend, Heather Sanders yesterday. Paparazzi got photos of them walking: See photos here 
So, did Jordyn officially get the boot? Is Heather Sanders taking the main bestie title? Who is Heather Sanders, anyways?
Ahead, everything you need to know about Kylie's friend Heather Sanders.

How did Heather Sanders and Kylie Jenner meet?

Kylie met Heather at her sister Kendall Jenner's Sweet 16 celebration where Tyga was performing. Heather was dating (and is currently engaged to) King Trell, Tyga's longtime best friend, who she also shares two kids with. Kylie and Heather have been inseparable ever since.

What does Heather Sanders do for a living?

The mother of two owns her own fast-fashion label, Sorella Boutique, that started off as online-only before she bought a store right on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles.
In addition to her boutique, Heather and her fiancé launched their own family YouTube channel, titled "Heather and Trell's Family," which boasts over 84,000 subscribers. She's also a InstaFamous celeb with over 1.4 million followers.

But are they really close?

Heather and Kylie's friendship runs deep. The two were expecting at the same time (Heather with her second daughter and Kylie with her first) and leaned on each other during their pregnancies. Kylie even threw Heather a gender reveal party. Heather thanked Kylie on Instagram, writing, "Thank you baby mama, today was beautiful. You're truly the sweetest. I love you forever... love the way you love 💙💙 #issaBOY"
When Kylie announced her pregnancy and the birth of her daughter Stormi Webster, Heather wrote a sweet message to her "pregnant sister" on Instagram and shared a photo of the two holding their baby bumps.
"Congratulations To The sweetest,Loving, Most Caring person on earth! So happy we got to share this experience together! Sleep together,Eat together, Workout etc Love Having you as my pregnant sister for 9 Months," she wrote. "You are going to be such an amazing Mom, and your beautiful baby is the luckiest girl in the world to have you as her mother💕 You Were Made For This! I Love You So Much! Can’t wait for Your Snap Back We Not Even Ready, The Most 🔥 Mama Ever!!"

What about Jordyn and Heather's relationship?

If Heather's Instagram photos are any indication, she and Jordyn were pretty close. In 2017, Heather posted a photo of her and Jordyn and used the hashtag "#realsisters." Months later, Heather was a part of Jordyn's birthday celebration (which also included Kylie's other best friend, Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou) and wrote, "Happy birthday to a real one @jordynwoods."

Does this mean Jordyn's officially cut off?

Jordyn was reported to be cut off for nowby Kylie, but not even the family is convinced Kylie will end things with Jordyn permanently. "Jordyn and Kylie are sisters and inseparable best friends," a source told Us Weekly. "The family doesn’t expect them to not be friends anymore. Time will dictate what happens here.”
Regardless of Kylie's longterm status with Jordyn, Kylie has been hanging out with Heather as the Jordyn/Khloé/Tristan drama continues. Kylie posted an Instagram Story of her and Heather stopping to admire the hail falling in California. And the two, of course, were photographed during that outing by paparazzi. It was Kylie's first public sighting since the scandal broke, and she tried to dodge photographers by hiding behind a red Cartier bag.

Hmm, So Fast! Kylie Jenner Steps Out With Other Bestie

Kylie Jenner's already moving on from Jordyn Woods, and hanging with a different BFF.
Kylie stepped out yesterday for the first time since news broke Khloe was kicking Tristan to the curb for allegedly cheating... this time with her sister's BFF, Jordyn.
KJ was all bundled up and trying to cover her face next to her pal, Heather Sanders.

It's snowing in parts of L.A. right now, so, Kylie and Heather were definitely dressed for it out in Calabasas -- and they even recorded a video to commemorate the oddly chilly occasion.
As for Jordyn ... she's moving out of Kylie's pad and back into her mom's house for now.
It's unclear where exactly things stand between Kylie.
