Lamar Wants Off E!...Khloe, Not So Much
Oh, Lamar Odom. Nobody explained this before you reached the altar?
You're a Kardashian, now. This is blood-in, blood-out. Your family will never do without life's most basic necessities: food, water, shelter, Gucci, Prada, Coach, and a camera sticking down somebody's craw ever minute of every day.
Though the former Los Angeles Lakers star and recent failed Dallas Mavericks experiment has nixed his and wife Khloe Kardashian's E! reality series "Khloe & Lamar" after the upcoming season, TMZ reports Khloe hasn't thrown her own towel in quite yet. In fact, she's reportedly still in discussions with the network to plaster her face all over a third unscripted series.
Calling Khloe a "huge draw," TMZ's E! source claims "We're definitely in the Khloe Kardashian business."
And as ever, business is a-booming. Already a fixture on the flagship ring of the Kardashian circus, "Keeping Up with The Kardashians", Khloe has already co-starred in the previous one-off (for her, anyway) spin-off "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami". More recently, E! last week extended "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" into the next three seasons. In the process, the network also re-upped their first-look development deal with the entire family.
That means that if Khloe squeezes out another hour of "Love me! Love me! F***ING LOVE ME!", E! will almost definitely be exactly where Khloe sticks it.
One wonders what Odom thinks about all this. Following his release from the Mavericks after months of in-fighting with management and coaches, Odom and Kardashian reportedly nixed the series so that he could get his NBA career back on track. If it's a new show Khloe wants, does anybody genuinely believe he won't at some point be again spending as much staring down a camera's barrel as working his low-post game?
