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.
Across town, Kim Kardashian was seen leaving the Scoop clothing store in Manhattan. Kim did a quick clothing change and then grabbed lunch with her BFF Jonathan Cheban and her brother-in-law Lamar Odom at Cipriani. The family has been in town to help Scott Disick open his new restaurant and spend some of their forty million dollars of E! money.

Well, I have some unfortunate news, so I hope you’re all sitting down. The Kardashians will definitely NOT be leaving our TV’s anytime soon – or our pop culture lexicon. Despite Kim Kardashian‘s sham wedding (with accompanying very public divorce) and the tremendous negative backlash from the media and the public, American’s favorite famewhores have just inked a $40 Million three-year reality television deal with E!. So, if this doesn’t confirm that Kimye is a publicity stunt – really, I don’t know what would!
Yes, despite petitions, and threats, and absolute proof that their shows are staged crap – they will be back whether we like it or not!
Ironically the numbers for last season’s KUWTK averaged only about 3 M viewers per episode – on par (or below) with most Housewives, but apparently the Kardashians’ scandals and drama are worth their weight in gold for the network; which basically exists purely to broadcast the family’s lives. The deal does not include any new shows! So when Kim and Kanye West start pimping out their totally authentic romance, they will iron out their own deal. Which means more ka-ching!
The less famous and thereby second-rate family members, Rob Kardashian along withKylie andKendall Jenner will receive considerably less. Scott Disick and Mason also get a cut of the profit, but they have a separate deal with the network. You know Kris was trying to insure against any possible break-ups!

Can anyone REALLY “Keep up with the Kardashians“!? If we shared and commented on every story about them in the news on a daily basis, we’d have to rename the site to Kardashian Tea. In an effort to prevent any such name change, we’ll just touch on a few of the highlights of the day.
First up, Kris Humphries reacts to the news that Kim Kardashian wants to enter the political arena by running for mayor. As you might guess, Kris reportedly finds the whole thing laughable, but not surprising. Honestly, are any of us ever surprised by Kim’s attempts at grabbing headlines?
Radar Online’s source shared this week that “Kris was told about Kim’s plans to become mayor of Glendale as it was making news yesterday. He doesn’t watch any of the Kardashian reality shows on E!, but he is telling his friends that he isn’t surprised that Kim said that because he feels there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do as she is so publicity hungry. It’s just ridiculous and sad to him that Kim is so fixated on fame and celebrity. There is no way that Kim would ever move to Glendale though, she complained whenever she had to stay at Kris’ condominium in Hoboken, New Jersey. Kim said that Hoboken wasn’t exciting enough for her.”
Kris also joked that if Kim can land a job as mayor, that he has a shot at the White House.
Humphries, please don’t give Kris Jenner any ideas. You know she’s punching out campaign buttons for her Kimmie as we speak and would gladly shift gears to running her presidential campaign.
Moving on! The media can’t seem to make up its mind on Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. One day they’re pregnant and the next, they’re not having sex and heading for divorce!
First up, a source tells Us Weekly that Lamar’s father was full of B.S. with his claims that Khloe was pregnant. It’s supposedly a complete fabrication.
Khloe and Lamar are allegedly heading for a split, not a baby. According to sources, the two are fighting constantly and aren’t even having sex, making conception a little impossible.
A source shared with Hollywood Life: “They’re not having sex. They’ve had a lot of blow-out fights that won’t be included on the show. She and Lamar are definitely headed toward divorce. They’ll be done by the end of the year.”
Khloe is also begging Lamar to go to counseling with her and promising that NO cameras will be involved in the sessions.
Why is it when things get REAL, the “reality” TV stars suddenly don’t want cameras around?
And finally, some NBA “experts” weigh in and state the obvious. Lamar needs to drop the reality show drama and focus on playing the game if he plans to continue his career in pro basketball. “If Lamar wants to get back in the game, he needs to keep working out. He needs to lose every distraction and focus on getting back the sixth man award.”
What do you think Lamar will choose? Basketball or a big glass of Kardashian Kool-Aid?
Khloe tried to squash the divorce rumors by sharing a picture of her having dinner with her man. Nothing says “we’re still in love” more than a strategy dinner meeting with the Pimpmomager.
TELL US – WOULD YOU VOTE FOR KIM? KRIS? WHAT WILL THE KARDASHIANS DO NEXT FOR A HEADLINE? DO YOU THINK LAMAR AND KHLOE WILL MAKE IT TO THE END OF THE YEAR WITH THEIR MARRIAGE IN TACT?
Aaaahhh… the Kardashians. Really, who can keep up? Who wants to? Not I! Anyway, America’s chief famewhorians are dominating the news once again with their antics. It’s more Kimye and more of Lamar Odom‘s NBA woes.
Sadly for Lamar, Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban is speaking out about Lamar’s experience with the team and admitting that filming Khloe & Lamar contributed to his lack of focus. Pimpmomma Kris Jenner is not going to like hearing that!
“I do think that if you know you’re on camera all the time, you know you’re on camera all the time. It means you pay attention to how you’re going to look on camera,” Mark told to ESPN, alluding to the fact that Lamar was more interested in seeking on-court and off-court fame than he was being a team player! Reportedly, Lamar is hopeful he will return to the Lakers as the couple has relocated to LA.
Lamar’s wife Khloe Kardashian admits that it’s unfortunate that it didn’t work out with the Mavericks, but she is excited about moving home to LA. “We’re sad that, especially with the season almost over, and we’re not able to finish the season with the Mavericks,” she told Ellen DeGeneres. “But it’s been such an amazing organization to be part of, and to move to Dallas even though it was short, except for those tornadoes.”
Khloe also talked Kim Kardashian andKanye West‘s media-loving relationship and she is thrilled for the new couple, who she believes is a perfect match! “I like Kanye. I think Kim and Kanye have known each other for a long time. I think that they’re good friends and they’re compatible,” Khloe gushed. “I think a friendship is where good relationships stem from. I think they’re cute together.”
And now that Kim is dating someone famous enough for her family’s approval, no one is holding back from slamming poor sacrificial lamb Kris Humphries! “Honestly I don’t know why this divorce takes so long,” Khloe sniped. “I feel like they’ve been getting divorced longer than they’ve been married and it’s like I don’t know why it’s such a long process.”
“I like Kris as a person…I just do not like them together. And I felt like I said this.” Queen of the famewhores herself, Kris J also had some not so kind words for her former son-in-law. According to RadarOnline, Kris is beyond thrilled by Kim’s illustrious new match which has put her back in the good graces of the media – somewhat.
“She loves that they’re together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris,” a source reveals. “Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere.”
“Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multi-millionaire superstar,” the source continues. “His money and fame are all going to benefit Kim now and she’s going to have all the perks of being his girlfriend, and her mom thinks this is going to be great for her own career.”

Are you ready for a whole bunch of Kardashian-related news? I can tell you’re excited! Well, would it surprise you to know that the seventh (yes, seven!) season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians has graduated to a full hour of television. E! is so confident that you have nothing else to do with your time that not only have they managed to find 44 minutes worth of “umms” and manufactured drama, they’ve also ordered 18 episodes. Is this one of the signs of the apocalypse?
Hollywood Life reports that Kim Kardashian‘s current “boyfriend” Kanye West has “signed on” to appear for the seventh season, since he doesn’t have anything to do either. Given the success of Kanye’s latest musical effort, his collaboration with Jay-Z, one must assume that he has genuine feelings for Kim, because it’s not like he needs the PR. He might be participating in this latest charade as a favor to her.
Moving on from Kim, pobrecita Khloe Kardashian is having a rough few months. First, insta-husband Lamar Odom was cut from the Dallas Mavericks. On Monday, Khloe tweeted the following, presumably to Lamar: ” “U deserve so much better. Know ur worth and know ur skills that have been proven and earned! U showed ur strength, I love u.” She was spotted at LAX by the TMZ cameras, and said “No, I like Dallas. I’m glad to be home, but I liked Dallas.”
A source tells Radar Online that Lamar is “depressed” after not only being fired from the Mavericks, but let go from the L.A. Lakers:
“Lamar hasn’t gotten over being traded from the Lakers, and he has been depressed and moody ever since it happened. Lamar felt that he was ripped away from his Laker family with no warning or notice. He couldn’t fathom the fact that the Lakers traded him after all of his years with the team.”
Radar reports that Khloe has a “romantic getaway” planned, to whisk Lamar away from the cameras. Except she might take E!’s reality show cameras. The source adds that, “Khloe has been extremely supportive of Lamar, but she is growing increasingly concerned for her husband because she has never seen him like this before.” A vacation may be just what the doctor ordered.
While Khloe has said she will follow Lamar wherever his NBA career takes him, this might be the end of the road. The insider adds, “Lamar wants to keep playing basketball, but it might be time for him to retire which has Khloe even more concerned.”
In even sadder news, Hollywood Life alleges that Khloe went through a miscarriage in February, and is worried that her inability to get pregnant will mean the end of their relationship. “She’s scared that if she doesn’t give Lamar a baby, then he’ll leave her.”
Well, it looks like Lamar Odom just freed up some time in his schedule to devote to filming his reality shows Khloe & Lamar and Keeping up with the Kardashians. It was announced this morning that after four months, he’s stepping down from playing pro basketball for the Dallas Mavericks.
“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team. I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
I won’t pretend to understand a thing about pro athlete contracts, but does this mean he still gets paid even though he’s not playing?
