Lamar might be learning that the TV spotlight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be — even for an NBA star! Could this end their marriage, too?
Trouble in paradise for Khloe Kardashian and her LA Lakers hubby Lamar Odom? The couple, not yet married two years, were thrust into the mega-spotlight when they agreed to shoot their own E! reality show Khloe & Lamar. But the LA Times says Lamar has definitely had second thoughts about the Kardashian family hunger for the limelight.
“By the third or fourth day [of filming], I realized how tough and demanding it was going to be,” Lamar tells the Times. “I was like, ‘I don’t think I could do this.'”
Khloe echoes Lamar’s concerns — and says she tried to warn him of the intense pressure!
“I think he thought we could send the cameras away whenever you want, but you can’t,” she says. “And I didn’t want to put him under that pressure. I said to Lamar during our first meeting that we would shoot during the offseason, and he was like, ‘No, no, no. I’m boring when it’s offseason.’ ”
But Lamar says for now he’s staying put and letting the reality show live on — maybe for a Season Two?
“But we worked through it,” Lamar says. “What I do is, like, usually on a game day, I won’t film, because I have to have my mind in a certain place and I have to rest my body.”
So HollywoodLifers, what do you think of the Kardashian attraction for the spotlight?
