The group of people who inexplicably watch Khloe Kardashian‘s spinoff, Khloe and Lamar, were dealt a blow this week when rumors surfaced that the pair had told E! they would no longer film their show. Lamar Odom, who has had troubles with his basketball career this year, allegedly wanted to focus on his career rather than continue to participate in the reality television empire his mother-in-law is head of.
Well, a “source” close to the situation tells Radar Online that this isn’t true. Lamar has always wanted to do a show and Khloe was just the easy way in:

In 2009 he went to VH1 to pitch a show. Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens had shows and he wanted one too. The producers basically told him he was boring. He wanted to have his own show long before he met Khloe. Don’t blame Khloe for dragging him into the show. He definitely wanted to do it. It was perfect for him when he met her.
The source says that Lamar likes the notoriety and relatively easy paycheck reality television affords him (who doesn’t?), “Lamar really likes the fame that he has now. He makes good money. He’s into the whole scene. It is very easy to get caught up in everything.”
It wouldn’t make sense for Lamar to drop out of the show now while he waits to be signed to another team and give up on the income. But, he may just need to do a Jason Hoppy and stand back while Khloe takes the spotlight. TMZ reports that E! is definitely interested in pursuing a reality show with just Khloe, putting it simply “We’re definitely in the Khloe Kardashian business.”
When will they change the name of the E! network to just be Kardashian Planet?
