Khloe Kardashian’s marriage might be falling apart as she’s forced to choose between fame and Lamar Odom. So would she give up starring on reality TV to become a basketball wife who stands in the background while her hubby gets all the attention?
Things have been a little bit rough for Khloe and Lamar lately – they had to move to Dallas when Lamar was traded to the Mavericks; Khloe is feeling pressure to get pregnant from her family and her fans; and the couple got a bit of a scare when Lamar was almost demoted to the Texas Legends D-league team.
So since so many things have been going on in Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s life, it makes sense for them to stop and look at how reality TV is affecting them.
According to Hollywood Life, a source close to the family says that Lamar is tired of being on TV and might want to quit Khloe & Lamar, but Khloe wants to continue with her reality career because “there would be NO Khloe” without it. Her relationship with Lam-Lam was won her plenty of fans, so of course it would hurt to give up all of that attention. Unfortunately for Lamar, Khloe allegedly thinks that their relationship drama is good for TV, and while she wants him to be happy, she’s been taught that fame is more important than husbands and boyfriends. So basically she might risk losing Lamar to continue to have their troubles filmed.
It’s hard to imagine Khloe Kardashian giving up on her relationship with Lamar Odom in the name of fame, however – he makes her incredibly happy, and Khloe seems smart enough to realize that love is more important than a silly TV show. According to HL’s source, they are considering couple’s counseling, which Khloe wants to have taped for Khloe & Lamar. However, maybe she and Lamar need to work out a compromise instead – they can both take a big break from the cameras and go through counseling together, working on a way to balance Lamar’s NBA career and Khloe’s reality TV job.
Lamar is reportedly worried about the future of his NBA career, but he can’t play basketball forever – perhaps he and Khlo need to have a serious talk about what he wants to do with his life once his NBA days are over. Since they could be numbered, he needs to respect Khloe’s reality show and the related gigs that come with it for bringing in a big chunk of money – it might prove to be unwise for the couple to quit and throw that all away.
It would also be hard for Lamar to quit the NBA to be a full-time reality show star, however — he doesn’t seem like the type of guy who would be happy sitting at home all day. Then again, if Khloe ever does get pregnant, maybe he could be a stellar stay-at-home dad.
But for now, it’s a tough spot to be in – the cameras being around probably are having a negative effect on Lamar’s game, but they’re how Khloe makes her money. Maybe she needs to allow Lamar play a more limited role on Khloe & Lamar, or maybe she needs to focus on finding another TV career – she’s already done multiple radio programs, so a TV talk show would be the next logical step.
What do you think this couple can do to end their marriage troubles?
