The matriarch wants to keep Lamar on her shows and doesn’t care if it comes at the cost of his basketball stardom, can EXCLUSIVELY report. Do YOU think his career is doomed?

Kris Jenner is trying desperately to keep her reality empire intact, and she doesn’t want to lose Khloe Kardashian‘s husband Lamar Odom from her stable of stars — even if it causes him to be kicked out of the NBA forever!

Kris, 56, is pushing Lamar, 32, too hard, sources close to the family tell EXCLUSIVELY.

“Kris is eager for Khloe and Lamar to do another season of their reality show, but Khloe has been telling her that she is not sure yet,” a friend close to the family tells us. “She doesn’t want to push Lamar into doing anything he doesn’t want to do, because she knows it will only backfire. Kris thinks doing another season will help their relationship, but the real reason she wants them to do another season of Khloe & Lamar is because she thinks the show keeps them relevant. Plus, if Lamar doesn’t get picked up for the NBA, the focus of the next season can be about them starting a family and undergoing infertility treatments.”

Unfortunately, NBA insiders tell EXCLUSIVELY that Lamar’s reality stardom could cost him his basketball career for good.

“Lamar should get the shows out of his system now, because nobody wants to deal with the headache it will bring to the locker room if a team signed him,” sources say. “Teams have to deal with enough, and these outside distractions will not be welcomed. Teams are now worrying about younger and cheaper players that are not headcases who do reality shows — they are against it.”

Do YOU think Lamar should quit reality TV, HollywoodLifers?
