Following his possible drug overdose resulting in a coma, Lamar Odom has been discharged from a Las Vegas hospital. While that’s undoubtedly a positive he could suffer lingering medical issues and may even be in need of a kidney transplant!
Yesterday Lamar was transported from Vegas to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA with Khloe Kardashian by his side (who is his doctor?!) to receive “specialized care.”
Reportedly the former NBA superstar will undergo 6 hours of daily dialysis in the hopes of rehabilitating in his failing kidneys. With the dialysis Lamar is “showing signs of improvement,” but he still ultimately may need a kidney transplant in the future. “His kidneys are shot,” explains an insider to TMZ.
We all know that the Keeping up with the Kardashian klan loves nothing more than being followed around by kamera krew filming their every waking breath, but besides the obvious, what kreates the hierarchy of the family’s favorite ways to garner attention? Following at a close second behind being E!’s own EdTV is obviously dressing your child in an outfit that costs more than the average person’s salary and finding new ways to pose nude in every publication known to man. Of course, all of the Kardashians also adore posting vague, yet poignant (and often pointed) quotes on Instagram, but more so than that, they relish in stirring up drama on the same social media site.
Doing both this week is the most level-headed (it pains me to type that) Kardashian, Khloe. She’s using her Instagram to inspire and to insult, although I think the latter was unintentional (albeit totally stupid on her part!). Khloe is quite the kontradiction, isn’t she?
Khloe Kardashian just cannot quit Lamar Odom, at least according to sources who spoke to Us Weekly. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been very open about her painful and public split. And truth be told, the public was on her side. I mean who would side with a guy who has been accused of having major drug addictions and multiple infidelities?? So why oh why would Khloe take him back?
Khloe started the rumor mill herself when she phoned in to Australia's 2Day FM Breakfast With the Stars radio show on and said "It's definitely not anything I'm through. I'm going through it, but I'm not through it." And reliving the entire ordeal on her family's hit show has been tough, to say the least. "It's really hard to watch yourself on TV. It's definitely different in that the world has to watch, too," Kardashian explained. "It's definitely not the easiest thing to do, but it's what my life is."
One thing I love about the Kardashians is their unfailing ability to make anything — anything— news! Frankly, I’m surprised we don’t get a GoogleAlert everytime they pee! Wait — I shouldn’t give them any ideas…
“Khloe is eager to get out of the constant media spotlight that comes with living in Los Angeles. Dallas has welcomed her and Lamar with open arms, and she is embracing this as an adventure,” Khloe a source close to the couple explains. “Khloe has been telling her closest friends that she is thrilled about the move because she will be getting away from the constant family drama.”
The constant dramz as of late has been caused, of course, by Kimmie behaving completely selfishly following her heart and filing for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere $17M profit and 72-days of marriage. Gotta love that Kim!
Reports have stated that Kim has been taking out her frustrations over being lambasted by the public heartbreak on Khloe which has caused the two to fight. “Kim and Khloe had been feuding up until November, but the two have since made up. However, Khloe is still extremely hurt that Kim called her an evil troll during an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”
“Khloe loves her family, but there is just always a situation where one family member is mad at another. She is embracing this move in a big way,” the friend admits.
Khloe is so excited about the move she has already started house hunting in Dallas. “Khloe will be going back and forth between L.A. and Dallas getting their households coordinated. Khloe will be spending Christmas Day with her hubby in Dallas as his team plays the Miami Heat,” the source continues. “Khloe and Lamar have a rock solid marriage, and they spend as much time as possible together, they are very much in love.”
Another reason Khloe is so excited about the move is because she is hopeful that a more relaxed lifestyle will increase her chances of conceiving. “Khloe has told Lamar that leading a calmer life in Dallas will help her get and stay pregnant,” the friend reveals.
In other Kardashian news apparently their Kardashian Kollection for Sears isn’t selling! According to MSN Money Sears erroneously bet on the Kardashian Kollection “stirring up consumer excitement” only to be rewarded with dismal sales and a lot of clearance racks boasting the products. Oops.
“Sears was betting the Kardashian name and collection of fashion products would stir up consumer excitement,” Unfortunately even on Black Friday sales were very low! Sears, which has consistently had negative earnings, “posting losses in every quarter so far this year,” failed to see a profit and the highly anticipated Kardashian Kollection did little to boost revenue for the struggling chain.
Marija Dabovic, a retail industry analyst for investment research firm Value Line, claims that “Sears Holdings has yet to see meaningful improvement,” after relying on the fame of Kim and ko. to deliver with their collection that offers “almost every product that women would want.” Including some blatant knock-offs!
Unfortunately, the kollection has been besieged by troubles including Sears being forced to pull certain products for copyright infringement. The biggest issue likely stems from the Kardashians recent fall from grace!
Sears launched the Kardashian Kollection right before Kim’s Fairytale Wedding when the family was right in the midst of a media frenzy over the event and generating tons of fan excitement. Sadly, I’m sure Sears wasn’t anticipating Kim’s Nightmare Divorce three-months later, which caused a media and public backlash.
Unfortunately the department store chain has already invested big on “initiatives” that have not been “effective” which is industry speak for getting burned by the Kardashians and there is little they can do to recover their losses if the klothes don’t sell. Well, what were they expecting with leopard-print jumpsuits?
