Less than two weeks after the death Lamar Odom’s high school pal, Jamie Sangouthai, the former Clippers forward is facing another devastating loss.
According to Us Weekly, Bobby Heyward, 30, died Saturday from a suspected drug overdose. Heyward, who worked as a producer and writer, was a friend Odom and Sangouthai, who also died from drug-related complications.
Eerily, Heyward had just taken to Instagram with a tribute to Sangouthai days before his untimely death, writing:
#RIP To my big brother Jamie who always brought light into any room he walked into and laughter as well at all times J you will always be missed. Family for life. #BandOfBrothers #tbt
While the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office did confirm Heyward’s passing, they did not reveal his cause of death.
Sangouthai died as a result of a bacterial skin infection known as fasciitis, which is caused by IV drug abuse.
One thing’s for sure, reality TV weddings aren’t the same as televised royal weddings, but these weddings are just as entertaining (if not more). Reality weddings are usually filled with much drama before walking down the aisle and many of them have been ratings gold, which means it makes sense for Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker to be the next reality stars to showcase their wedding on the small screen. And we’re sure Mama Joyce will keep fans entertained about her thoughts on the weddings — going back and forth from she’s not going to say anything and hopes she’s wrong to she knows her daughter is making a big mistake and she’ll regret it. Oh brother! But Burruss and Tucker’s big day (and the drama leading up to it) hasn’t been experienced by just them.
Here are 15 other major reality TV weddings filled with tears, love, romance, hilarity and much drama.
Khloe Kardashian ended 2013 by filing for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom, after countless rumors of substance abuse and cheating. Lamar, however, is still keeping hope alive for a reunion with his estranged wife.
“I want to make it work with Khloe,” the former Clippers player told InTouch Weekly.
It appears that he has already taken steps to make this happen. According to Lamar, he has plans to see the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star very soon.
“I’m going to see Khloe,” he added. “I’m going to see her soon.”
But before their big reunion can take place, Lamar has to recover from an injury that he suffered while playing overseas in Spain.
“I’m focusing on getting better,” he finally concluded.
Interestingly, it appears that his attempts to get his wife back may actually be working. Sources close to the family claim that Khloe is willing to give her marriage another shot—despite being advised not to by worried friends and family members.
“He confessed his feelings and cried his heart out to her on the phone,” insider said of a mid-March phone conversation. “She’d been avoiding his texts and calls for weeks, but when she heard him pleading with her to take him back, she melted.”
I suppose only time will tell if his attempts to get Khloe back are actually working.
Would you like to see Khloe and Lamar back together?
There seems to be a very dark bad luck cloud hanging over the heads of estranged couple Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. According to the TMZ, their former Tarzana, California home was recently burglarized. The thief reportedly got away with nearly a quarter-of-a-million in valuables—specifically jewelry.
The home that the couple once shared has been vacant for over a month and was recently sold to “Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco. Khloe and her mother, Kris, reportedly returned to the home on Monday night to collect the last of her belongings when she noticed the jewelry was missing. Sources say watches and gold chains were among the missing items. There were no signs of forced entry into the home, which has led investigators to believe that the heist was an inside job. It is also being reported that the tradesmen, who were hired to work on the home for the past month, are being eyed by police. The swanky mansion was first put on the real estate market back in November following Khloe’s divorce filing.
Kardashian reps have yet to comment on the heist, but Khloe posted a cryptic message about karma that seems to be directed at the culprits to her Twitter account.
‘I’m Not Going To Feel Sorry For Gabrielle:’ NBA Groupie Speaks On Alleged Relationship With Dwyane Wade
When news first leaked that Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade fathered a child outside of his relationship with Gabrielle Union, many assumed that the child’s mother was Sandrina Schultz, a woman that has been tied to the shooting guard since he was married to now-ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade. But it turns out that the infant’s mother was actually Aja Meteyor and Sandrina says she was very hurt by the situation.
“With Dwyane, that was a shock,” she said during an interview with The Break Room. “I didn’t know he was having a baby. He didn’t tell me and we are friends. We’ve been friends close to 10 years now. It was really heartbreaking in the sense that we have discussed relationships and babies. Then you come out to find that he had a baby. That was a little bit too much for me to handle.”
Though she insists that they’re just friends now, she says that the majority of her romantic relationship with Dwyane occurred while he was still with his ex-wife.
“We started when he was going through some trials and tribulations with his ex-wife. Now we’re just friends I do want to clarify that.”
It’s unclear if their affair overlapped into his relationship with Gabrielle Union; however, she was sure to throw shade at the “Being Mary Jane” actress and make it obvious that she doesn’t care much for her.
“Gabrielle [Union], whatever. She… I don’t really have too much to say about her.”
As for whether or not she feels remorseful when she creeps around with players who have wives and girlfriends at home:
“I don’t feel sorry for anyone that’s married or a girlfriend to these atheletes. We all know athletes do their thing. I haven’t met one athlete who didn’t have many girls on the side. When you choose this lifestyle, you just have to accept it.”
And she specficially doesn’t feel any remorse towards Gabrielle because, wait for it…Gabby has more money than she does.
“I can’t feel sorry and I’m not going to feel sorry for Gabrielle because she has more money than me in the acting world. I’m not feeling sorry for anyone and no one is feeling sorry for me. I’m not really into breaking marriages. I don’t wanna none of these guys like that.”
The model and author also insists that being called a groupie is nothing to be ashamed of.
“There are groupies out there that are bad ones, but then there’s the good groupies or the successful groupies. You know, Kim Kardashian, Khloe and all of them,” she explained. “But my take on the whole groupie thing is that I have a certain group of men that I’m interested in and thus far it’s been NBA players. I love these groups of men and I’m not going to stop because I’m labeled as a groupie.”
Sandrina adds that players who seek out a certain type of woman can also be considered groupies.
“And for them, whether it’s the dark-skinned girl or the light-skinned girl with the big booty, long hair and all these other kinds of characteristics that they like. You know, they, themselves, are groupies.”
She also discussed her alleged affair with Lamar Odom, which supposedly began during the beginning of his relationship with soon-to-be ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian. Sandrina also claims that she was with Lamar the night he met Khloe at a nightclub.

Is Lamar Odom something like the cat with 9 lives, or what?! After alleged drug and alcohol addictions, people are still willing to give the brother a chance. According to ESPN, Laboral Kutxa, a Spanish basketball team, announced that they’ve reached an agreement with the 34 year old former Laker. Odom has signed a two month contract with the option to extend it to the remainder of the season.
He comes to the team filling a roster spot that opened due to an injury.
ESPN reports that these types of deals usually contain clauses that leave room for veterans to return to the NBA if the opportunity presents itself. But sources claim Lamar’s plan is to play out the entire season before determining whether or not he wants to come back to the NBA.
Odom could make his Laboral Kutxa debut as early as this Saturday against Valladolid. Laboral Kutxa is ninth in the 18 team Spanish league and last in the Euroleague group.
Laboral president, Josean Querejeta said in a statement, “We’re very happy to have signed a very important player who has had a long and fruitful career in the NBA. We’ve worked very hard over the last couple of days to make this happen, we felt we needed a boost and had to break the collective cloud that has been hanging over us over the last while so we could get back to winning.”
Lord knows we wish Lamar the best and hope he is able to find some type of peace and whatever healing he may need on the court, over there in Spain.
Sometimes you know within a matter of minutes if the person you just met is your soulmate and partner for life. That appears to be the case with these celebrity couples who wasted no time moving from dating to engaged within a matter of months or even days.
Big Sean and Naya Rivera
Rapper Big Sean had a longtime girlfriend back when he signed with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. Even though she was there for much of his success, the couple parted ways in 2013 and soon after that the Detroit rapper was in the arms of another woman. Big Sean met actress Naya Rivera on Twitter first before taking their romance offline and into the real world. After dating for just six months, Sean popped the question this past October.

Oh? Kim Kardashian Says Khloe Wasn’t Trying To Have A Baby With Lamar Because ‘She Knew It Wasn’t Right’
After years of the public being led to believe that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom didn’t have children together because of Khloe’s fertility issues, her older sister, Kim, is now saying that there’s a lot more to that story. According to Kim, Khloe wasn’t really trying to have a baby with Lamar.
“For so long everyone in our family was feeling so sad for Khloe, thinking that she wasn’t getting pregnant and everyone around her was,” Kim told Jimmy Kimmel. “And the whole time she wasn’t trying [to get pregnant].”
Kim went on to say that in addition to Khloe’s marital woes, she wasn’t really ready to be a mother.
“She wasn’t showing up to these doctor appointments behind our backs on purpose, and she just knew it wasn’t right [to get pregnant at that time].”
Kim later released a statement regarding the comments she made on the show, insisting that people are twisting her words.
“I’m so tired of people twisting my words,” Kim tweeted. “Khloe did start fertility and she wanted to have a baby, but I believe in the middle of the process she realized timing wasn’t good based on what was going on with her relationship. She was not ready to tell us everything so she stopped treatment without telling us. “
We can’t really see how her words were being twisted, when she clearly said that Khloe “wasn’t trying.” However, considering how quickly their marriage unraveled, it’s probably best that the soon-to-be divorced couple never had children.
Unfortunately, reality TV celebrities realities aren’t that great! They’re under curse — a curse that causes them to end their marriages in nasty divorces!
In fact, there are so many reality TV stars who married and divorced each other — prior to and during their reality TV superstardom — that all of them couldn’t possibly fit into this list. But Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are currently going through a mess of a divorce, and Porsha Williams and Kordell Stewart messy divorce was finalized just last month. MadameNoire is recapping the many celebrity couples who found fame on reality TV series and fell victim to failing marriages — a guilty pleasure of juiciness for the cameras and audiences to witness.
While some celebrities had a very successful year, others are all too happy 2013 is coming to an end, especially these stars.
In just a few short years, Lamar Odom went from winning the Sixth Man of the Year award with the Los Angeles Lakers to an unemployed NBA player who allegedly disappears on crack binges for days at a time. Instead of suiting up to play in the 2013-14 season, Odom has been mysteriously absent. Although his wife of four years initially vowed to stand by her husband’s side while he battles drug addiction, even Khloe Kardashian-Odom has her limits. After weeks of speculation, the reality television star has filed for divorce and asked the courts to officially drop her married name.
