Whenever a celebrity first gets on, they, naturally, always want to introduce the people around them to the life of luxury they’ll soon be accustomed to. Some people get a house, others get cars, but then there are some family members and friends who make freeloading a way of life once someone they know starts getting paid. You know, they stop working like they’re they ones bringing home the bacon. Here are some of the worst offenders.
Lamar Odom’s Father
Lamar Odom’s father should be ashamed. He hasn’t been a part of his son’s life for decades. But as soon as he realized what he’s been missing, he returns with his hands out. That’s very tasteless. This poor old man was begging on TV for tickets to the game and whatever else he could stiff Lamar on. Lamar is being played because as everyone says,” you only get one father”.

Oftentimes when couples mix business with pleasure, it can cause tension in the relationship but not for these couples. Here are 15 celeb couples that became partners in the bedroom and boardroom.
Daytime darling Kelly Ripa met her husband Mark Consuelos on the set of ABC’s “All My Children.” After keeping their relationship a secret for over a year, the couple snuck off to Vegas to elope. Ripa and Consuelos continued to play married couple Hayley and Mateo on the soap opera for six years until leaving the show. Having no problem working together, Ripa and Consuelos founded production company Milijo in 2007 and made several films that premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta is known for its over the top drama, fancy gay hair stylists and larger than life cast. Kim Zolciak, the show’s resident white woman and most notable character (next to NeNe) is now gone after moving into (and losing) her “dream” home, getting married, and lying about the duration of her pregnancy. Sadly, there’s no more vanilla in the RHOA coffee, but just in case Andy and them wanna add a little milk back in, here are 15 replacements who would fit right in.
‘You Can Get Up And Move On After Things Fall Apart:’ Liza Morales Pens Open Letter About Losing Lamar Odom to Khloe Kardashian
Anyone who has been there knows that it is rather difficult to get past a rough breakup. Being unable to stroll through your local supermarket without seeing your ex and the very famous woman whom he left you for, plastered on magazine covers seems unfathomable. While this sounds like a storyline from a horrible soap opera, it is indeed the reality for former Starter Wives: Confidential star and mother to Lamar Odom’s children, Liza Morales. The Daily Beast recently published a rather detailed open letter penned by the New York native, where she recounts what it felt like to watch the love of her life marry another woman and how she moved on. The letter in its entirety reads:
“I don’t think I’ll forget the tight knot I felt in the pit of my stomach the morning I received the text message with three simple words on the screen. It read “I’m getting married” and it was from the man I’d spent more than 10 years of my life with. Years that included us getting engaged in 2000 and becoming parents to one daughter and two sons. Yet not long after our separation Lamar Odom was getting married to Khloe Kardashian, a woman he’d met four weeks before. How could the man who’d constantly given me reason after reason for why we couldn’t get married just yet now be ready to tie the knot so quickly? There aren’t words to explain how I felt that day.
I met Lamar in the 9th grade in Queens, New York, and was completely taken in by his wit, charm, and that devastating smile he so easily flashed at anyone he met. We dated from the 11th grade on and shared a tight bond due to a lot of things, including the fact that we both were products of broken homes.
Though my parents weren’t together, I did have a very close relationship with my father, whom I loved dearly and consider my hero. He worked very hard to make sure I could attend Catholic school and have everything I needed. But when I started dating Lamar that all changed. My father is Puerto Rican and he didn’t approve of me dating a black man. His small mind and small thinking ended the relationship with my dad. I wanted a life with Lamar and needed my family to support that. The next 10 years would be an amazing journey filled with many ups and down but Lamar and I were creating the family we’d both always dreamed of. Or so I thought.
We talked about marriage a lot during those days but Lamar would always tell me that NBA marriages never lasted. He’d point to Shaquille O’Neal’s marriage ending or Dwayne Wade’s marriage ending as examples of why we should wait until he retired to tie the knot. He told me he wanted to leave the game early and then the timing would be perfect for us. I listened to the many reasons why we weren’t married yet and believed them, knowing deep inside something wasn’t right. And then I slowly morphed into the girl I promised myself I’d never become, the girl who stayed long after she knew she shouldn’t. Truth is, I wanted that fairy tale so badly that I couldn’t bear to walk away from that life or take my children away from the comfort and security of a two-parent home.
I struggled to deal with all the groupies around him and with whatever else that was going on and just stayed put. My denial came to an abrupt end in 2006 after the death of Jayden. Lamar and I never really talked about our loss, which I know wasn’t healthy and also meant our relationship would never last. It couldn’t. I found out soon after that he’d had a long-term relationship with another woman—a relationship he said he’d end but he didn’t—and that was that.
We kept things cordial for the children’s sake after the breakup, but that changed when he married Khloe. Now we only communicate through third parties and lawyers, which I regret deeply since it is exactly what we each experienced as children and said we wouldn’t do to our kids.
I’ve only met Khloe once, at my request since she is my children’s stepmother and I felt it was important to get a sense of her and what she’s like around my children. It was a very pleasant meeting, she gave me a hug so I’m happy it happened.
Though some frown upon my decision to do a reality show, I agreed to be a part of “Starter Wives” so I could tell my own story of how things unfolded after Lamar married Khloe. We weren’t really together so I didn’t fall apart as many have suggested. I’ve have to deal with a lot of tabloid lies as the result of all the attention Lamar gets since he’s married to someone so famous.
To be honest I’m really doing the show for my daughter to prove to her that you can get up and move on after things fall apart. I did it to show her how you make mistakes and fix them and that you can never give up on yourself. She needed to see that and hear it from me. I think I also hope my father sees it as well. The only time I’ve seen my dad in recent years was at the funeral for my son. That was the first time Lamar had ever met him or that the kids had a chance to meet him. I’d really love for my kids to have their grandparents in their lives. They’ve met Lamar’s father (his mother passed away before we met) and are very close to my mother. I’d like to see that change and see them have relationships with both of their grandfathers.”

“Imitation Is A Form Of Flattery”: Liza Morales Speaks On Claims That She And Khloe Kardashian Look Very Similar
Khloe is on the left, Liza on the right. In case you were already confused.
In an interview with the New York Daily News recently, Starter Wives Confidential star and the mother of Lamar Odom’s children, Liza Morales, spoke on Khloe Kardashian as a mother in the future, and the claims that homegirl bears a resemblance to the famous Kardashian sister. Things got a little shady, if you know what I mean, but Morales makes it seem as though she and Khloe get along just fine.
For some reason, conversation veered away from talking about her upcoming TLC series and instead began to focus more on Khloe, and somehow, all of a sudden the new reality star was asked if she felt that Lamar’s new wife would be a good mother, since she gets the chance to spend a lot of time with the son and daughter Morales shares with Odom, and has also struggled in the past to get pregnant. “I don’t know if she’s good maternally, I don’t know. As long as my kids are good, I’m good…As long as my kids are taken care of and I haven’t heard anything negative, then I’m good.”
On top of that, Morales also decided to give a response to the many people who seem to think that she and Kardashian are strikingly similar in their physical appearance. I personally don’t see it aside from the dark hair, but that’s just me. Older than Khloe, Morales makes it clear that if anything, the Kardashian sister looks like HER, not the other way around:
“I’m 100% Puerto Rican and I was here first. I was here first, so she has a resemblance to me. I don’t see it. We both have dark hair. We both have a cherub face. I don’t think we look alike, but I have heard it. Imitation is a form of flattery!”
In her interview with the New York Daily News’ entertainment site, Confidential, Morales also talks about why she and Odom went their separate ways after the death of their son, who passed from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, but also says that she’s moved on and can’t wait to have sex again in the future after being celibate for the last four years: “I’m not waiting for marriage, I’m just waiting for a good man. I will be like a caged animal out of the Bronx Zoo.”
Well all right. While other sites, including those at the NY Daily News who interviewed her, tried to come at Morales’ head for saying she didn’t know if Khloe would be good maternally, let me say that it clearly says that she claimed she “didn’t know” whether or not she would be a good mom, not that she would be a bad one for this reason or the other. You truly don’t know what type of parents folks will be until they actually get a baby in their hands to take care of 24/7. But as for Morales’ comments on herself and Khloe looking similar…uh, no comment. Check out the full interview here.
Liza Morales Tells MN How She Feels About ‘Khloe And Lamar’ And Why She Thinks Her Ex Will Watch Her On ‘Starter Wives’
I think a first in television history may be happening right now. Two exes are starring in reality shows at the same time, and while neither one is on speaking terms with the other, they’re talking a lot about one another to the cameras. That’s the case with Liza Morales, star of TLC’s new reality show “Starter Wives,” and her ex-fiance Lamar Odom, who now is a part of the Kardashian franchise and pops up on camera whenever Kris Jenner and Ryan Seacrest say so.
Liza has had a rough time since her split from Lamar and the death of their third child and when we caught up with her at the “Starter Wives” screening she had some surprising things to say about her time since she and Lamar split four years ago, and just how much contact she, her ex, and her ex’s wife, Khloe, keep in touch. Check out the exclusive.

The fashionistas were out and about this week in a variety of lush colors and interesting fabrics. Per the usual, we’re watching the fashion trends going on, but this time around, we’re checking them out from Cali, as well as London to see whose looks we would steal and who we would like to tell to stop. You down? Let’s begin.
The very fabulous actress, Kerry Washington, stepped out for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association luncheon in Beverly Hills yesterday, and for the occasion she went frilly and flirty. She wore this pink and red Christian Dior dress with its fluted skirt and pleated details, with a pair of nude pointed-toe pumps. Her jewelry was pretty simple for the occasion, opting for a small black watch, a small blue ring and small diamond hoop earrings. Her hair was lightly curled and luscious, and she sported a dark pink lip. I absolutely adore this dress and the nude shoes are a perfect and safe pick. The Dior dress is cute and fierce enough to make it through day and night events. Steal!
