I don’t even watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but I just might have to catch a few episodes during this new ninth season.
In the trailer for the reality show, everything we heard about in the news plays out in front of our eyes: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West get engaged (you get a preview of how the whole thing went down in the trailer), Bruce and Kris Jenner tell their family they’re separating (“We’re better as friends than we are the other way”), and of course, Khloe and Lamar go through some heavy marital problems.
Of course, you would think the latter situation would be one they wouldn’t want to talk about on camera, but it seems Khloe is ready to open up. In the trailer she is confronted by paparazzi who ask if she is behind Lamar Odom’s downfall, and when asked how he’s doing, she just shrugs. The reality personality goes on to say that she’s ready to move forward despite the tumultuous state of her relationship:
“I have to move on with my life and that means changing a lot.”
But Lamar still loves her and whatever the truth is about why he hasn’t been seen with the family and what he’s dealing with, he still wants to make things work. He tells Kourtney during a phone call with Khloe on speakerphone that, “I would do anything to be accepted back by you guys, you guys are all I’ve got.” But will she take him back? Should she?
Whatever decision they decide to make is clearly going to be what’s best for them, but I just find it odd that Odom keeps saying the Kardashians are his only family and all he has when he has two children that were there before he met and married homegirl. Just a thought…
Check out the supertrailer for the new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and let us know what you think.
Up until this point, Lamar Odom’s substance abuse issues were all speculation. Folks of course drew their conclusions, but no one could really prove anything. However, TMZ recently acquired a video of what appears to be an inebriated shirtless Lamar and a friend, rapping about drugs, making money and creeping around on his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
While the video doesn’t exactly confirm or deny whether or not Lamar is actually battling with a crack addiction, as he could really be under the influence of anything in this video, it looks pretty damaging. What can be proven by this video, however, is that not everyone that Lamar has in his circle can be trusted. Even if he is actually struggling with this addiction, for someone to release the video to the media like that is pretty well, cruel.
“And when Khloe’s out of town / I still be on the DL,” he incoherently babbles at point in the video.
It’s all pretty difficult to watch. Let’s just hope it’s not as bad as it looks.

In West Indian culture, there’s this…ritual that if a woman is trying to trap a man, all she has to do is drop a little of her menstrual blood in his food, preferably spaghetti. Ms. Prada has a song called “Voodoo Pus$y” and the black community, for right or wrong, has long hypothesized about the hold Erykah Badu and her green eyes have over the men in the Hip Hop community.
Now, some may find these type of speculations derogatory or, I don’t know, sexist. But if you ask me, women have powers we don’t often utilize. So, it’s not such a leap for me to speculate that the Kardashian women have…something going on. I know I write this at the risk of sounding like a crazy conspiracy theorist. Maybe I am crazy. In fact, I’m sure of it; but as far as this is concerned, I have evidence.
I know, I know. You’ve heard about the Kardashian family and Kanye’s mouth diarrhea far too much this week. But it was all of Kanye’s weird interviews of late that have gotten me thinking about all of this. There used to be a time when Kanye kept relatively quiet about his love interests. Sure, he’d name drop them in a song or two but I don’t remember a time when I heard Kanye speak more about his woman than his art. And we know how important his art is to him and the rest of the world. As someone who finds the value in a lot of Kanye’s bravado, I don’t get this.
First, there’s the fact that Kanye, who is supposedly so against being mocked, criticized or even challenged, is all of a sudden so eager to put his personal life in the limelight. I’m sure you’ve listened to the soundbite or read the transcript of the interview in which Kanye, who used to be mostly about the music, said that he and his finance, the mother of his child, are “in the exploitation business. We get paid to exploit ourselves. I’mma give my daughter the opportunity to exploit herself.”
I don’t know if exploiting what are supposed to be the most intimate moments of your life for financial gain and increased fame is something to brag about.
Does anybody remember the time when Kanye reluctantly and awkwardly appeared on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”? What happened to that man? Now, he’s proposing in baseball stadiums for all cameras to record. One minute, he’s fighting the paparazzi for making money off of him, then the next, he’s thanking them for showing the world how fresh he is. Certainly the paps played a role in Kimye becoming more influential than Barack and Michelle Obama.
Then as if that weren’t enough, there’s the fact that Kanye keeps trying to convince us that Kim is talented, that she deserves a star on the Walk of Fame. Kim is smart. I will give her all of that. But I’m still confused about the talent. He says it’s her beauty but aside from the plastic surgery and intense contouring, she really had very little to do with all of that. Should we still consider her beauty a talent? Ok, Kanye. I get that you love your fianceé, but are we all required to love her as well? He’s just trying too hard. The Kanye I thought I knew was alway self conscious. He was the first to admit it. But at the end of the day, as far as his romantic life was concerned, I assumed he couldn’t care less about whether we, the public, liked the women he took home at night.
For weeks rumors have been circulating that rapper-turned-reality-star The Game has been creeping around with Khloe Kardashian. In case you missed it, the rumors began to surface around the time word got out Khloe was experiencing difficulties in her marriage with Lamar Odom. If you ask The Game’s fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, what she thinks about the rumors, she says she’s not too worried about them because she believes the friendship is strictly platonic.
“”It doesn’t bother me [the rumors]. Jayceon and Khloe have been friends for a long time.,” she told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite.
She went on to say that Khloe used to date one of The Game’s friends.
“She actually, back in the day, years ago, used to date one of his close friends, so that’s where their relationship stems from. They’ve always been really good friends.”
“You know how the media is, and the paparazzi is, and how people speculate on things, and that just goes along with the territory. So to tell you the truth, no, it doesn’t bother me or affect me either way.”
Tiffney also commented on Khloe’s current relationship woes with hubby, Lamar Odom.
“I think that she’s going through a lot right now in her situation with her husband, and at the same time, Jayceon is there to support her and encourage her as a friend. So no, it doesn’t bother me.”
Well, I guess if she doesn’t have a problem, neither should anyone else. As for whether or not she and her fiancé will be returning to VH1 for season three of Marrying The Game, Tiffney says she’s not sure as of yet.
“You’ll have to talk to the people over at VH1 about that. The network is really in control of when they put us back on the air, but I’m sure that with the fans being interested in what’s still happening with Jayceon and I and the kids, the show will be back next year.”
The Game lashed out — threatening to go all Kanye on paps last night — and it was all in defense of Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe and Game were getting swarmed as they walked out of Tru Nightclub — where she was hosting — and Game put all the paparazzi on notice, shouting … “Put your cameras down, or there’s gonna be 7 broke cameras!”
And just to make sure the paps were paying attention, Game played the Yeezy card, adding … “You thought Kanye was a problem? I’m a REAL problem!”

“Dont Judge Unless U R In It”: Khloe Kardashian Says She’s Going To “Ride Til The End” For Lamar Odom
Despite dropping the Odom from her last name on social media, and not having been seen in public with her husband since early in the summer (last seen at Kim Kardashian’s baby shower to be specific), it seems that Khloe Kardashian is sticking to her vows, and will stand by Lamar Odom during this troubled time he’s having. Just a few hours ago, the youngest Kardashian sister posted a stream of thoughts on Twitter where she said that she’s going to “Ride til the end” and despite what people might say or how they might judge, this is a journey that she has to travel on her own, her own way–not in a way to please anybody else (including her family).
Not all scars can be seen and not all love can be explained. The deepest love is also the hardest to express. Only those in it, understand
If I love u. Its a deep 4ever love. Ride til the end. Family/friend.Its simply called love. I take it seriously. Dont judge unless u r in it
We all have our own journeys in life. So even if u don’t accept mine. Be kind….We all have a journey 2travel & I want to walk mine, my way
Two things define you: your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything.
I can respect Kardashian’s decision to stand by her man, because only she knows how she feels and who the real Lamar Odom is, not how he’s being portrayed in the media and through what he’s battling with right now. Let’s hope that these two can work things out, and that they don’t display too much of their personal struggles on their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In a recent episode we saw Khloe talking about some personal demons Odom was dealing with (but not directly speaking on drugs or cheating). But honestly, some things as complicated as their current issues just need to be dealt with in private. Good luck to them!
It’s been a tough couple of months for Khloe Kardashian. After four years of marriage to Lamar Odom (their anniversary was last Friday and they didn’t spend it together), it seems that the couple are slowly but surely going their separate ways. Odom has been caught in a whirlwind of accusations about the state of his life, including whether or not he’s been cheating on Khloe, or if he’s just been spending his free time (since he’s a free agent in the NBA) doing drugs. The youngest Kardashian sister hasn’t spoken about the rumors and issues she has going on with her marriage aside from a few angry Tweets, but during a Facebook chat with her fans, she thanked them for their support during an obviously tough time.
The 29-year-old held a chat with her Facebook followers yesterday, and though it was brief, it received thousands of comments from her fans and supporters. According to Us Weekly, about 12 of those who took part actually received a response from Khloe. One fan showed her a lot of love for being strong during her struggles with her estranged husband and they were one of the few to get some love back.
“I think you’re so amazing and beautiful and love how you carry yourself through all of these hard times!!! You are such an inspiration to me!!!
In a brief response, Khloe thanked the fan and revealed that she’s doing her best to keep her head above water.
“I’m trying my best! Kisses.”
There’s no telling how things will work out between the two, but with Khloe already dropping the Odom from her last name on Instagram and Twitter, and the fact that they haven’t been seen together in months, it’s not looking too hot. But let’s hope they can work things out because despite how fast they married, we really like these two together…
As bad as everyone claims Lamar Odom is doing these days, it seems his father, Joe, will be worse off in a minute if he doesn’t make things right with his son.
We told you last week how Joe went on a tirade against the Kardashian family, claiming that they really care nothing about his son, whose life is currently all over the place. He even went as far as to say that they’re to blame for his current state and that Kris Jenner is an “evil b***h” and Kim Kardashian is a “p**n star.” Of course, Lamar lashed out in response to his father’s statements, even reminding pops in front of the world that he “wasn’t there 2 raise me.”
“He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me. He disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return.”
Joe Odom went on to apologize, probably because he initially assumed Lamar wouldn’t respond, and as it seems, because Lamar is that man’s meal ticket.
Joe reached out to TMZ and and told them that Lamar has stopped paying his rent, which he had been taking care of for four years now. Joe claims that after he spoke to Radar Online about the Kardashian family, his son called him and went off over his comments and told him that he’s on his now and needs to pay his own bills. Those bills include the $2,900 per month rent that Joe is unable to pay. He says that he can’t afford it and if he can’t find the money, he’ll be kicked out of his apartment by the end of next month (people kick folks out that quickly??).
You would think that Joe would learn after speaking publicly to the media in the first place that doing that only makes things worse. His issues with his son need to be handled privately, and I doubt Lamar is about to pull out his check book now that he’s confiding in TMZ.
On a side note, the four-year anniversary of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar’s marriage was on Friday, but it looks like they spent that day apart. After being seen hitting the gym, Kardashian posted a photo on Instagram of a gift she received from her friends, twins Malika and Khadija, on her anniversary–but nothing from her estranged husband. Oh Lamar…
Update (12:45 pm):
Earlier today, we told you that Lamar Odom’s estranged father, Joe Odom, came forward to make some pretty heavy accusations against the Kardashian family. Lamar responded to his dad’s Kardashian rant via his Twitter page, insisting that his in-laws are the “only family” that ever “loved him” and blaming Joe for his “downfall.” In an interview with TMZ, Joe has since come forward to apologize for his comments, offer clarity for his statement and defend his sobriety. According to Joe, he has been clean for thirty years and also believes that his son, Lamar, is also drug free.
Yesterday Lamar Odom’s estranged father, Joe, came forward to talk about all of the drama currently surrounding his son. He went as far as to blame the Kardashians for ruining Lamar’s life and even implied that his son has been “cursed” ever since he married Khloe back in 2009.
“Someone’s got to speak out, I’ve got to do something about this. It’s simple. They brought him down. He would be better off without them. Let him go and get his life together. I think the best thing for him would be to have a clean break, divorce Khloe and as a single man try and get his life back together,” Joe told Radar Online.
He also had a few choice words to say about Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner.
“The mother has been talking a lot of trash about my son, saying he’s on drugs and stuff like that. She’s got something against my son, something against my family. Kris Jenner is very negative. She’s an evil b****. She doesn’t care about Lamar, she just cares about their image and money.”
When asked if the Kardashians are drug abusers, Joe responded:
“I blame Kris in particular, she’s been through a lot of stuff herself. She’s no Cinderella. I can’t really say if the Kardashians are doing drugs, but my son would never use hard drugs. I can’t pinpoint right now who’s giving it to him, but I’m going to investigate. The Kardashians haven’t been a good influence on my son.”
“They don’t give a f*** about my son. It’s more about the damage they do to the Kardashian brand. They brought him down. He’d be better off without them. Let him go, get his life together.”
He wasn’t very shy in expressing the way he feels about his daughter-in-law, Khloe, either.
“I wish he had never got married to Khloe to be honest. She’s controlling. Those Kardashian women all are. You get married they think they wear the pants. You just bring them your whole paycheck, that’s how it works.”
“I saw her totally differently when I heard the way she talked privately. It isn’t pleasant. In public she’s nice, but if you see her personally you see the real person come out of her. The mother’s like that too. The whole family, they put up an act.”
“They haven’t been a good influence on my son. It’s been the curse of his life. He hasn’t really accomplished anything since he’s been with them. Without them, he’d still be in the NBA playing basketball. He’d be playing for the Lakers and be one of the top players in the league.”
Joe also claims that Kim hasn’t been very nice either.
“I heard Kim say they don’t have crackheads in their family. That pissed me off. Look at where she came from. We don’t want porno stars in our family.”
“I love my son dearly, but my advice to him would be: Leave the drugs alone. If he is abusing drugs, he’s got to stay straight and get his life together. Go into rehab. If it is crack he is taking, he’s got to get help.”
Surprisingly, for the first time since his alleged drug abuse scandal made headlines, Lamar publicly addressed his struggles. In a statement shared via his Twitter page, the 33-year-old Queens native jumped to the defense of his in-laws and slammed his father for not being there to raise him.
“Won’t continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of sh**. He wasn’t there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me,” Lamar began.
After proving their critics wrong after getting married post dating for one whole month in 2009, almost four years later, it looks like things are really on the rocks for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. If there aren’t rumors of cheating going around, the next rumor is that Odom is battling a crack addiction; but either way, we haven’t seen the pair together publicly in a very long time. Last time Odom spoke to reporters/paparazzi, he told them “Life is good” and that he had spoken to Khloe recently. But despite his claims of things being all good, it looks like Khloe might soon be ready to be “all good” by herself.
The youngest Kardashian sister has quietly taken a stance on Instagram, dropping her husband’s last name from her profile and deciding to go on as khloekardashian instead of khloekardashianodom. She made the change to her account this past weekend and has since been seen hitting the club scene with her sisters and friends. And I’m sure you’ve noticed that she’s been looking quite fabulous these days after dropping a few pounds and upping her fashion game big time. Seems like she might be tired of sitting at home worried about her man and is ready to get back to happy. But could a reconciliation happen? We’ll have to wait and see…
