Ever since moving to Dallas, things are troubling for the only stable Kardashian couple, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The couple has always seemed rock solid and very in love, but several recent stressors have left them feeling disconnected and at odds with each other. Previous reports have stated Lamar is “depressed” about leaving LA and the Lakers, and apparently, the couple is “not happy” and their marriage is “in crisis” as a result!
“The situation in Dallas is not good,” a friend tells Life & Style (via their print edition). “He is not happy and Khloe isn’t either.” Apparently, stress over their attempts to conceive along with Lamar’s performance on the court this season, are driving a wedge between the Khloe & Lamar stars.
Being away from her family is also a struggle for Khloe, who is reportedly “jealous” that Kim and Kourtney are spending so much time together and is “sad” to see them getting “so close.” Why anyone would want to spend more time with Kim is beyond me! Khloe “misses her family and friends terribly,” the source adds.
Lamar’s recent transfer to the Texas Legends, after a family issue caused him to miss games, is apparently weighing heavily on his heart. The NBA star issued a public apology to his Mavericks’ teammates and revealed he is re-focused and ready to win!
“It was really personal and it was something I had to tend to,” Lamar explains of his decision take a ten-day break. Some unfounded rumors have speculated Khloe suffered a miscarriage. “Sometimes we have to fix whatever’s going on off the court in order for us to fix what’s going on on the court.”
Lamar is empathetic of his teammates’ frustration with both his erratic playing and his lack of focus this season. “I’ve had some things that bothered me and was easily distracted,” Lamar admitted to ESPN. “So, it was easy for me to lose my focus. Again, sometimes we need everything in order in order to give ourselves 100 percent.”
After a great performance in a recent game, he feels he’s back to his A-game. “I just told them to stick with me and at this point in time in my life I need them,” he told his teammates.
And, Lamar also said he is enjoying Texas! “The town, the city has been great. I’ve had a lot of fun since I’ve been here and the reception has always been warm. I’m having a great time here.”
Speaking of professional athletes who need to get their head in the game, Reggie Bush is supposedly still not over Kim! Why do I think Kim’s people planted this story?
“He can’t seem to get her out of his mind,” one of Reggie’s friends informs Star magazine (via their print edition). “It’s like he’s addicted. It’s embarrassing.” If this is true, being addicted to Kim is definitely embarrassing!
“He should be focusing on his career, but he thinks about her all the time,” the source reveals. “He just can’t help himself.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star allegedly flew to Miami where Reggie offered to give her another chance if she promised to leave the celeb-life behind. Which, obviously didn’t happen. As we previously reported, shortly after that alleged trip, Reggie was spotted with a couple of different women!
Poor Kimmie Kakes. According to a new report, Reggie Bushisn’t the only famous man who wants nothing to do with her, after dumping her again recently, for the umpteenth time, apparently other athletes/singers/rappers/actors are also shying away!
If you’ve been keeping up with Kim Kardashian’s drama, you know she and her pimpmomager Kris Jennerare hell-bent on finding her another famous dummy to trick into marrying her! Life & Style reports that after divorcing Kris Humphries, and getting her heart-broken again by Reggie, Kim now fears she’ll be single forever. “She’s like, ‘No one will date me!'” says a close friend.
And she might just be right! According to the friend, guys no longer want anything to do with Kimmie Kakes due to their fear of getting “Humphried.” Yes that is now a verb. “The Kris situation was so ugly – guys are now worried they’ll get Humphried!”, reveals the source. In fact, sources say that Kim was indeed trying to get hooked up with NBA star Jeremy Lin, but he and his people quickly put the kibosh on that plan! Ouch.
On top of being dateless, Kim’s family is STILL upset with her for bringing them down with the divorce backlash, and her relationship with her sisters remains strained. “Her family is concerned they’re going to sink along with Kim,” admits an insider. Going to? Seems like they already have.
However, the latest issue of Star magazine is reporting that Kim, 31, is not giving up on love just yet. So where does a famewhore reality star go to find love after being deemed undateable in her own country? If you guessed Saudi Arabia, you guessed right!
Yes, in a story that doesn’t at all seem planted by pimpmomager Kris to deflect from Kim being dumped by Reggie, Star is reporting that following her latest humiliation at the hands of Reggie, who was pictured with a new girl just two weeks ago, Kim is now trying to move on with a Saudi Arabian prince, who also happens to be a billionaire. Even better, Kim met this prince during her trip to Dubai last October, you know, while she was still married to that poor schmuck Kris H.!
“Kim is over dating singers like Ray J and athletes like Kris and is setting her sights much higher,” Kris Jenner An “insider” reveals. ” And by, she’s over dating singers and athletes, the insider means, they’re over dating her! “She’s determined to marry royalty,” adds the source.
While in Dubai last year, several royals reportedly gave Kim their phone numbers, I’m guessing they wanted to know her rate for the night, with the insider adding: “The one she really had a connection with is a billionaire.”
Kim and her billionaire prince have been reportedly keeping in touch over the phone with Kim now planning a trip back to the Middle East. While Kim will claim her trip is to expand her business in the region, insiders insist she’s really heading there for a rendezvous at a palace with the Prince.
As for Kim, she did an interview this week with Extra while shooting her guest spot for Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, in Atlanta. In the interview, Kim, of course claimed she is single and not looking to mingle. Riiight.
“I’m not dating right now. I don’t really care to,” claims Kim. “Obviously, I’ve learned that I rush into things when I fall in love and get excited. So maybe I should chill out for a little bit.” Kim’s comments are hard to believe, as she was telling the media the same thing back in 2010, while she was secretly having those close to her hand out her number to Kris Humphries and every other professional athlete on the planet. Kris was unfortunately dumb enough to take the bait.
Moving on to Khloe Kardashian’s hubbyLamar Odom, who we reported yesterday got demoted by his NBA team to go play for the D-league aka the Developmental League.
The good news for Lamar? ESPN just reported moments ago that the Dallas Mavericks have called him back to the team, ending his very short stint with the Texas Legends. A source tells the site the team had a change of heart because they “need” Lamar now following their latest loss.
So, why did the Mavs send Lamar to the D-league in the first place? The official word from the team is that they wanted him to get his legs better but sources tell ESPN the Mavs and Lamar’s teammates are very unhappy with him. In fact, his coach Rick Carlisle and teammate Jason Kidd have publicly criticized him this week. “Our fans want to know that Lamar’s in. Our players want to know that Lamar’s in. It’s not about how many points he’s scoring or rebounds; those things are a factor. Our fans, our players want to see the guy playing like his pants are on fire and we haven’t seen that so far and that’s got to change,” said coach Carlisle during his weekly radio show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Galloway & Co.”
Jason, on the other hand, made it clear that Lamar’s inconsistent effort and extended absence were a major concern. “Trust factor is always big,” Jason told ESPNDallas.com. “For that, he’s going to have to earn it with a lot of the guys. But we all give second chances, third chances. For that, we just want him to be him and be comfortable and play.”
In addition to his bad game play–he’s having the worst season of his career–Lamar’s team reportedly became fed up with him after he took more than a week off to deal with a personal family matter. While Lamar told his team last week that he needed time off to go be with his dad, a media report came out stating his father was deathly ill. That report, however, ended up being false as Lamar’s father appeared publicly days later in good health stating he only suffered a minor stomach issue. And folks, let’s just say the NBA doesn’t give you time off because your daddy has a tummy ache.
So now the Mavs, who were already disappointed in Lamar’s game play this season, felt that taking time off was the final straw, hence sending him to the D-league to send him a message.
However, the rumor now is that Lamar didn’t really take time off to be with his dad but rather his wife Khloe. An unconfirmed rumor, which we hope is not true, is that Khloe might have suffered a miscarriage and Lamar was using his dad’s minor illness as a cover up. In fact, the above photo of Khloe was taken in late December which led to some speculation that she was sporting a baby bump. Other sources are also saying that Lamar has been quite depressed since being traded from the Lakers last December, and that his heart doesn’t seem to be in the game anymore. Yikes.
Whatever the case is, Lamar will be back with his team starting today.

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?
