Lamar Odom Wanted to Quit Filming Lamar and Khloe Show After Three Days

I’ve often thought it would be tough for Lakers forward Lamar Odom to maintain focus on basketball with everything he does off the court, and it turns out I’m not the only one. During a visit on The Ellen Show this week, Lamar admitted that a few days into filming the Khloe & Lamar show he wanted out. Here’s the video as shared by the LA Times:

In case you couldn’t watch the clip, Khloe Kardashian actually didn’t want to do the show because she knew how much work it involved. Being mindful of his playing career, she didn’t want to put Lamar through the show, but he’s actually the one who wanted to film it. Lamar said he thought it was going to be easy, but three days into filming he wanted to back out of the contract.

I couldn’t tell you how the show is, but just what we suspected is the case: having your own show is pretty intense and requires a lot of time and effort.

But Where Was Uncle Fester?

That apparently is the Kardashian family Christmas Card, featuring Lamar Odom. Unlike last year where he was photoshopped in, it looks like he was present for the shoot this time. It’s just unfortunate Hand, Cousin It, and Uncle Fester couldn’t make it. The seamstress is probably still working on their clothing.

Ty Lawson’s Fairly Inappropriate Tweet

Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson is reaching out to the Kardashians, and doing it in a pretty immature way that commissioner David Stern might not be very happy with.  I’m not sure if this is serious enough to warrant any type of punishment, but Twitter is obviously becoming somewhat of a problem in the NBA.  Paul Pierce’s Twitter account was supposedly “hacked” during the playoffs when “someone” wrote about the Celtics sweeping the Magic after they went up 3-0, although that one really shouldn’t bother Stern.  Charlie Villanueva tweeted during halftime in a game against the Celtics last season.  His coach — Scott Skiles — was none too pleased.  Shaq did the same a week later as a way of mocking Villanueva.  His coach — Alvin Gentry — didn’t seem to care at all.

Lawson’s tweet is a bit more inappropriate than the one’s we’ve seen from NBA stars in the past, and Cowboys receiver Miles Austin, the alleged new boyfriend of Kim Kardashian, might be a little offended by this Tweet if they’re indeed dating.  Check out this screen shot of Ty Lawson’s tweet about Kim Kardashian, courtesy of Sports by Brooks Live:

For those of you who don’t excel at reading between the lines or aren’t exactly with the times, he’s using “hit” as a sexual reference.  Tisk tisk, Ty.  Tisk tisk.

UPDATE: Ty Lawson is denying he sent the tweet

Lamar Odom/Khloe Kardashian Getting Paid for Marriage?


This whole Lamar Odom/Khloe Kardashian wedding news never sounded right from the day it came out. To say they met one day and were planning to get married the next day isn’t even a stretch. Plus, add in the fact that after dating Rashad McCants Khloe said she was swearing off ballers (I guess it’s a hard habit to kick). Then you mix in Odom’s previous long-term relationship and his kids and you figure it would take a little more than a month of knowing each other before they would decide to tie the knot. Well now it seems as if all those reasonable questions are being answered.

TMZ is saying that Odom now wants a prenuptial agreement but they won’t have enough time to draw one up prior to Sunday’s wedding. That means the marriage supposedly will be non-binding and essentially a sham, as Sports by Brooks wrote. To make matters more disgusting, TMZ also says that a reality show is paying for the million-dollar wedding — can you say Wag the Dog? So what does this all mean? It means the whole wedding is a paid-for sham and nothing more than a publicity grab. At least we’ll have to give them this much — it worked! But how shallow can you be to sell your love on TV? I guess Shawne Merriman would know something about that.

Khloe Kardashian and Rashad McCants Now Dating?

Well, I had a pretty good idea that Rashad McCants wasn’t going to grace the pages of LBS for his play on the court, so I guess this was his way of making himself relevant. The National Ledger passes on a report from life & style weekly saying the younger sister of Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, is dating Timberwolves swingman Rashad McCants.

The report claims, “Khloe Kardashian has scored a basketball player boyfriend! Life & Style has learned exclusively that she’s dating Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rashad McCants. Reggie Bush, who dates Khloe’s big sis Kim, introduced the couple, both 24, in the fall.

“They’re getting serious,” says an insider close to Khloe. “Rashad knows that the Kardashians are incredibly close; if you date one member, you basically date them all. But he’s not worried — he loves Khloe and can’t wait to get to know the whole family better!”

I dunno about you, but I have a hard time being convinced that Khloe came from the same gene pool as Kim. Just my thoughts on the matter. And if I were a player on the T-Wolves, I’d much rather go after a no-name girl that’s hot than the lesser of the three Kardashian sisters. He could do much better.
