The Word: Keeping up with E! reality TV
Could it be that a Kardashian is actually putting her family’s happiness over her reality TV ambitions? The answer is: Maybe! But don’t tell her publicist that!
According to a source at Us Weekly, “Khloe has pulled the plug,” on her E! spin-off series “Khloe and Lamar.” The reason, according to TMZ.com, is that Lamar Odom wants to focus on reviving his faltering NBA career.
Back from Dallas, where Odom was released from the Mavericks last month, the two “have decided he should train all off-season,” the insider tells Us Weekly. “And she’s exhausted from filming!”
However, Kardashian’s publicist tells Entertainment Weekly: “The show has not been cancelled. It will depend on their schedules, as Lamar’s basketball schedule is a priority.”
If the series doesn’t return for a third season, at least there’s another reality TV show about the trials and tribulations of young married life hitting the network. “Married to Jonas,” starring Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle, will follow the couple as they navigate their daily lives at their New Jersey home while juggling his recording and touring schedule and various sets of in-laws.
Here’s an idea, E!: Have Khloe and Lamar move next door to the Jonases, get Lamar on the (now Brooklyn) Nets with Kim Kardashian ex Kris Humphries, and create the most beautiful reality TV mash-up in the world. Thank (and pay) me later.
