Well, the drama surrounding Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian continues as everybody wants to know will they continue with reality television? Yesterday it was reported that the couple had decided not to film another season of their reality show Khloe & Lamar, citing Lamar’s desire to focus on basketball. Khloe’s rep denied the rumors, but she was probably ordered by Kris Jenner to put the kibosh on the speculation whilst she tried to convince the couple to continue. Afterall, marital meltdowns and professional instability equals ratings gold!
RadarOnline is reporting that it was totally Lamar’s idea to quit the show and now he is feuding with his over-bearing pimpmomager-in-law! “The idea to pull the plug on the show was all Lamar’s. He felt that it was becoming a distraction and Khloé fully supported her husband,” a family insider reveals, adding that Lamar’s family stressors, Khloe’s fertility issues, and his basketball career were the major reasons.

“Kris doesn’t think it was necessary for them to not do another season of the show though and told them that Ryan Seacrest‘s production team would work with Khloé and Lamar to film less. Kris told Khloé that viewers could be inspired by what they are going through right now because the unemployment rate is so high,” the insider added.
“However, Khloé isn’t budging and told her mom there will be no show, period. This is the problem when a mother makes money off of her kids, it could cloud her judgement. Kris gets a 10 percent commission on all of her children and Lamar’s deals that she has brokered. Kris is now losing money because of Khloé and Lamar’s decision to not do another season.”
Apparently a major reason Lamar was over the show was E!’s insistence that he be filmed on court. “Kris was not happy about the decision and is already trying to figure out how to keep the two of them in the limelight. Khloe wanted another season of the show but understands how important it is for Lamar to get his career going. Plus Lamar didn’t want the cameras following him around when he doesn’t even know where he will be playing ball,” a family source tells HollywoodLife.
“He thought it would be completely humiliating and a huge distraction. The fact that he is even making appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians is a huge deal because at first he didn’t want to do any reality TV. Khloe pretty much had to choose her marriage over reality TV, so I am glad she made the right decision — even though Kris was not supportive of it.”
I have to say, I’m impressed with Lamar for standing up to his MIL and for deciding to focus on his career. He and Khloe definitely seem more grounded than the rest of her family and she needs to give ol’ Kimmie Kakes a talking to about being a supportive partner and choosing reality TV over your vows!
