Kim Kardashian doesn't make the same mistake twice.

Recently, when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim was asked to comment on Tristan Thompson's alleged infidelity. "I don't even know how to describe it. It's so f--ked up," she told Ellen DeGeneres in defense of her sister, Khloe Kardashian. "I feel like Khloe always dives into relationships and puts her whole heart into everything. I mean, she moved [to Cleveland], and I've seen her be in a really tough situation before in her last relationship [with ex-husband Lamar Odom]." Kim said she treated Tristan like family and was "rooting" for him.

In a sneak peek from Friday's episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan, Kim offered new insight into Khloe's life after scandal. "Honestly, she's so focused on her baby. Her baby is gorgeous. Gorgeous!" the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gushed. "So, you know, she's so happy."

Knowing Kim to be an "honest" person, Ryan Seacrest asked, "Is there any part of you that roots for Khloe and Tristan?" As her smile betrayed her feelings, Kim replied, "Yeah, I mean…" The audience began to laugh, prompting Kim to explain why she was choosing her words more carefully in this interview. "OK, last time I went on TV and I answered some questions about her I got blocked on social media—and not from Khloe. So, I'm going to...yes, I'm always rooting for her. I'm always rooting for love," Kim told Ryan and Kelly Ripa. "I'm always rooting for families."

"As your attorney," Kelly joked, "that's a great answer!"

In another preview from Friday's episode, Kim said her husband Kanye West is "doing really good," in spite of his recent interviews and controversial tweets. "He's in Wyoming recording. He has a couple albums, so he's just focused on that," she assured the co-hosts. "I will say, he gave me my first gray this week, and I am blaming that on him! But no, he's doing really good."
