The newest Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom update sees the reality TV star sticking to the firm stance she’s taken with regard to her estranged husband, despite his weakened condition–and dealing with growing fan backlash because of it. Khloe, who’s been making the publicity rounds to support her current book, Strong Looks Better Naked, as well as her upcoming KUTWK spinoff, Kocktails With Khloe, will apparently “definitely” make use of Odom’s ongoing recovery in the show.
Each successive Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom update has been more heated than the last in recent months, as Odom’s camp continues to allege that Khloe is taking advantage of favorable publicity regarding Odom’s recovery from a drug overdose and seizures to hide how little involvement she actually has in his life. She was criticized earlier this week for pushing her “party” show instead of helping Odom make the transition from his hospital bed to a rehabilitation center; earlier, speculation flared up regarding whether she was actually paying Odom’s medical bills, as she’d led some onlookers to believe.
And, late last year, Khloe made headlines when she declared that she was “going to focus more on [herself] in 2016,” leading some to question how that would make the coming New Year different from any other.
According to a new Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom update from Inquisitr, Khloe is thrilled by what she calls Lamar’s “amazing” story–because she intends to incorporate it into both Kocktails With Khloe and possible future KUWTK-related projects. Though Khloe initially told reporters “It’s not my story to tell,” and “I want him to be able to tell that story,” she later doubled back on that statement. In Khloe’s words, because Kocktails With Khloe is in some measure a chat show, she will “definitely” share Lamar Odom updates and anecdotes when the moment is right.
“It’s such a conversational show,” said Khloe, “and I am kind of bantering with my friends,” she explained, addressing the Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom update complications head on. “It does come up,” she continued, “because it’s my life, so if someone is pulling a story from their life it’s so easy for me to throw one back at them.”
Devoteés recalled that, after Lamar was initially admitted into the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Kris Jenner allegedly had him filmed in secret for future episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It’s not known whether Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have any arrangement–formal or otherwise–relating to film for Kocktails With Khloe.
However, in positive Lamar Odom news, People reports that the former NBA star will finally be moved to a live-in rehabilitation center within the next few days.
