Why Lamar Odom Agreed To Do 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Again

Lamar Odom Keeping Up With The Kardashians

A source close to the family says the Kardashians have convinced Lamar Odom to stay on ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians,’ but there is one very special rule they have to follow…

With Lamar Odom‘s NBA career on the rocks, he wants to stay out of the limelight to focus on getting back onto one of the top teams in the country. An insider close to the family told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Lamar agreed to be filmed on Keeping up With the Kardashians…as long as nothing was mentioned about his basketball career.

“Lamar feels uncomfortable with the cameras on him right now, so he came to an agreement with Khloe about what the cameras could and could not tape,” the insider tells us. “Khloe has been very understanding and is just grateful that he will show up to important family events. Lamar still has no desire to do another season of Khloe and Lamar. He thinks his lack of a job right now is all too embarrassing.”

While Khloe is supportive of Lamar’s decision to not want to continue filming Khloe and Lamar, Kris Jenner keeps pushing them to change their minds. Khloe is afraid that pressuring Lamar could ruin their marriage, but Kris keeps telling her otherwise.

“Kris thinks doing another season will help their relationship, but the real reason she wants them to do another season of Khloe and Lamar is because she thinks the show keeps them relevant and that it’s a job,” our source says. “Plus, if Lamar doesn’t get picked up, the focus of the next season can be about them starting a family and undergoing infertility treatments.”

The insider also admits Kris can be very “demanding and manipulative” to get what she wants, which is unfortunate because another season could potentially lead to the end of Khloe and Lamar’s relationship. This leaves Khloe stuck with the decision of either pleasing her family or pleasing her husband.

Tell us what YOU think! Should Khloe listen to her mother, or continue to support Lamar’s wishes to take a break from reality television?

Please let be mature here,you guys don’t dumbs. What is stoping khloe from taking a paternity text. Her mom has told her to decline while she pushes her,just read the line on their faces. This is a smart game,she is not a kardashian and she know so she doesn’t want to prove it. Her mum knows and she does and she is upset with her mum about it but the public must feel her mom is okay with her DNA txt. They are scared to death

Khloe obviously adores her husband and I don’t think she’ll have any problem at all telling her mother to take a hike. Look how she stood up to Kris about the DNA test Kris wanted her to do.
Khloe is the most level-headed, normal one of the bunch and I think she’ll stick by her husband and help him through this next chapter in his life, whatever that may be. I don’t think anyone pushes Khloe around, including her mom. Team Khloe and Lamar!

Sol,

“Black men stupid” Wow! Could it be that you are obviously angry and hostile because “black men” can see through you and will not give you the time of day. Look in the mirror at who you are before making a racial statement like that.

He’s doing it because he’s lazy and apparently egotistical. No team is going to touch him as long as he’s caught up in this reality crap. He needs to be getting in shape and focusing on getting with another team. This stuff has gone to his head. So many young men would love to have a professional basketball career and here this Knucklehead is throwing it away to be on a reality show.

Khloe and Lamar need to distance themselves from the chaos and stupidity that is the Kardashians. As the only normal Kardashian, Khloe should keep away and concentrate on her marriage.

Lamar should do nothing but concentrate on his career. If he does not want to do another season of K&L why would he want to be on KUWTK? Lamar is going to wind up losing his career listening to the K’s and their nonsense about their snoozefest reality shows. What is the big deal? Can’t a man in that family NOT be a part of their reality shows if he wants too? SMH.

Good for Lamar, bad for Kris Jenner, remember this is the
woman who advised her daughter to end her 72 day marriage, she never stops. Why does she think that any of her daughters will ever be “forgotten” really, after all this wedding/divorce drama? Khloe should listen to her husband, and leaving TV it just may help getting preg, [or use a surrogate, like Bill & Giuliana Rancic]
