The Word: Lamar Odom is missing on suspected drug binge

I often find myself wondering what you’d have to be smoking to want to marry into the roving pack of bedazzled harpies that is the Kardashian family. Turns out, it’s crack. You have to be smoking crack.

It’s recently been revealed that Lamar Odom (aka Mr. Khloe Kardashian) has been addicted to crack cocaine for at least two years. (Which apparently explains the trouble in the couple’s marriage — which, in true Kardashian form, has been trotted out for the world to salivate over in very public fights/publicity stunt.)

And now, according to TMZ, he’s missing. (Well, the Kardashians have been unable to contact him.) They fear that the basketball star (who is now better known as the poor guy who has to listen to the least famous Kardashian whine all day) is off on a drug binge, following a failed intervention that ended with Khloe throwing him out of the house. I’m thinking that he’s just off somewhere binging on some private time away from Khloe.

Because we all know what happens when you spend too much time with a Kardashian woman: the orange eunuch formerly known as Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner happens.

On a serious note, drug addiction is a serious matter, etc., and I hope they find this guy alive and well.
