Kim & Kourtney Kardashian: How Dare You Attack Khloe Kardashian For Putting Lamar Odom First

Mon, July 9, 2012 11:57am EST by 30 Comments
Keeping Up With the Kardashians Recap

Kim and Kourtney took selfishness to the extreme on last night’s, July 8th, episode of ‘KUWTK.’ They had the nerve to criticize Khloe for putting her beloved husband Lamar Odom first – ‘ to the extreme ‘.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian – are you two really in the position to slam the one happily married sister in the family – Khloe Kardashian – for putting her husband’s needs ahead of her demanding sisters and mother? Especially when her husband was going through a major career crisis!

It was a shocking display of self-centeredness when the two of you piled on to stressed-out Khloe, who was dealing with the overwhelming fallout of her husband, Lamar Odom, being benched by the Dallas Mavericks.

Khloe, not only had to organize and oversee moving all of her and Lamar’s possessions back home to LA, but she was also was trying to manage Lamar’s emotional needs and his business strategy so he’d be able to revive his NBA career .She was doing both with love and maturity and shouldn’t have had to be dissed for her loyalty by jealous sisters.

Lamar was understandably in a full-blown confidence crisis after his game fell apart in Dallas and he got booted from the team.

Bruce Jenner was  the only family member besides Khloe who has sympathy and understanding for what Lamar is going through.

“Every time you raise the bar, it requires greater commitment,” he counsels Lamar, urging him to train hard, and he’ll get his game back on.

Meanwhile Kris Jenner, Kim and Kourtney only care about ONE THING – pressuring Khloe to come to NYC with Lamar, for the grand (and to be filmed of course) opening of Scott Disick‘s new restaurant, RYU.

They don’t just, not care, about what Khloe and Lamar are suffering through, they’re actually angry at Khloe.

“I understand putting your husband first but I think Khloe takes it to the extreme. I think maybe she’s too stressed,” whines Kim.

Really Kim – I guess it’s not too surprising that you would find it ridiculous that a wife would put her husband first – obviously, that’s not something that comes naturally for you. Kris Humphries sure found that out.

“She’s trying to make Lamar’s world so perfect – so that’s making me frustrated,” continues to moan Kim some more, because Khloe is doing the right thing – hyperfocusing on what Lamar needs to get back in the game.

It’s Khloe, who’s on the phone to Lamar’s agent, Jeff Schwartz, asking what Lamar’s strategy needs to be in this crisis. And HollywoodLifers – remember, there was a HUGE crisis following Lamar’s embarrassing departure from the Mavericks. Both the general press and sports press made it major front page news and the attention was a further blow to Lamar’s fragile ego.

Lamar’s agent advised Khloe very specifically: “I want him in the gym. For the next two months I want him low key, just working on his basketball. He needs to disappear. He can reemerge at the end of the basketball season,” he instructed.

“Publicity right now wouldn’t be a good thing for his sporting career,” Schwartz warned.Definitely, not music to Kris Jenner’s ears.

Khloe took these instructions ultra seriously and so did Lamar – he started working out six hours a day.

But anyone watching had to feel for Khloe as she struggled to support Lamar, while fending off 30 phone calls from mother Kris Jenner, who was on her case to satisfy Kardashian empire business demands.

“My family just thinks I’m sitting here, lying out in the sun every day, going to spas,” Khloe said, freaking out.

“I think I’m about to break and crumble. I get migraines every day. They don’t get what I’m under and they don’t back off,” Khloe confessed tearfully. “My family is pressuring me and pulling me in a million directions.”

Khloe was so right to feel pulled in a million directions. She’d only been back in LA for a couple of days and her family was insistent that she stop focusing on Lamar’s career meltdown, or on unpacking her house and getting settled.

Instead, they’re angry that she can’t run over for sister lunches and then run to New York City.

“I was so looking forward to getting Khloe back and it’s not like that,” complains Kim.

“She has all these excuses. She can unpack any time,” accuses Kourtney!

Her sisters are relentlessly self-centered and unsympathetic to her needs and the needs of her  marriage which is under huge strain.

Kim led the most pointed attack. “Do you think because Lamar has lost his mom, grandmother and every other female figure in his life you need to be all of that,” she digs, as if it’s a bad thing that Khloe wants to be Lamar’s best friend and support.

But I’m so proud of  Khloe for standing up to her pushy sisters and mother, and putting her marriage first. She went right back at Kim and Kourtney.

“You two are calling me out,” she told  them off. “Kim, you’re system isn’t working (it sure isn’t) and Kourtney, you’re not even sleeping in the same room as your boyfriend, I have to do what’s right for MY marriage.”

You go, girlfriend! Not doing what was right for her marriage and Lamar’s career was what got him in trouble with the Mavericks. Giving into Kris Jenner’s pressuref to do a Khloe & Lamar reality show distracted him from his game and almost destroyed his career.

Luckily, Khloe didn’t listen to Kris especially, and she made sure Lamar followed his agent Jeff’s advice and focused on his workout, staying out of the press and off TV. Now he’s signed on to be an LA Clipper.

It rocked that Khloe finished the episode by telling her sisters: “you know what, I am an Odom – good-bye Kardashians.”

Your overbearing sisters sure got what they deserved. They’ve tried to force you to get a DNA test this season and now they dissed you for standing by your man. Meanwhile, you’re the only sister to have a successful marriage. Don’t forget it! Stand your ground and keep standing by your man!

I continue to pray for a divine intervention in the lives of Khloe & Lamar. There was true love in that relationship. To hell with being a celebrity, its about true love until (a natural) death due they part.

She is right to be a supportive wife over her own devoring family members but I truly believe that the KLOE LAMAR reality show is not good at all for LAMAR’s career.
They should drop it for several reasons:
1) it is not interesting at all and every show turns around their bed or on it, silly feathers and all…
2) It is hurting his career because what is he?
– a sport guy or a soft porn actor?
3) their life is dull no hobbies, no intellect, and Lamar is not a man, like most men, that can live with only a wife at home, he needs his pals around otherwise he is be bored.

I so agree Cheryl. My hubby have been married for 21 yrs and I would do anything 4 him. When u get married ur hubby comes first and when u have kids the kids and ur hubby are ur first priority, ur family will have to adjust to that or it’s going to be their loss by missing all the important events for example the christening, graduation, birthdays, etc………….. You gave them a warning so there is nothing else u cn do about it and u shouldn’t have to.

Oh go Khloe!! I think you are the best Kardashian – the most realistic at least. She says it, it’s not about the publicity to her. The marriage matters more. I love when Khloe stands up to her family. It seriously seems like she genuinely cares about Lamar.

See this is what i HATE about hollywoddlife.com they are over dramatic. Honestly Kourtney and Kim were not that bad. I can see why they were annoyed. Khloe wasn’t wanting to do anything and forgot about her whole family who needed her at New York. And when she asked lamar, lamar didnt care he said go ahead! So it was khloe being stubborn. I mean yes I do love Khloe but I dont think kourtney and Kim were being selfish. Ever think that Khloe has seen Lamar everyday for the past year and hasnt seen or had time to spend with Kourt or Kim. Maybe they miss her. But guys your sticking up for Khloe because who hate Kim. And also I love how the title says How dare kim… um it was kourtney too….

How dare they criticise Khloe?? Kim look at your track record, you spotlight hogging pornstar.
And Kourtney, why don’t you keep your man on a leash!!
You do what you feel is best for you and your husband Khloe… You are the my ONLY FAV KARDASHIAN now.

Could this be the 1st of many kracks in the kard empire? ?

This post is as dramatic as the Kardashian clan. I totally agree with Khloe and any other married woman or man, needing to put their marriage first but really?? does she have a life of her own?? ever since she married Lamar, every single episode where she comes out, is about him… his training, his life, his career, his happiness. I’ve never seen him stressing like that over her. Put your marriage first? absolutlely but in order to take care of her marriage, she also has to take care of herself and not neglect her own needs as well. Its all about balance, give and take and the shows make it seem like shes driving herself crazy trying to be his mother and fulfill his every need. I can’t help but feel bad for her. She always seems stressed.

i was watching the episode and kim and kourtney have no bussiness giving reletionship advice. Kim coudn’t stay maried TWICE & Kourtney can’t commit to marriage ( i dont blame her).
At least Khloe knows how to make her relationship last for 3 years & going strong.

There is something very unhealthy about Khloe and Lamar’s relationship. She acts like his overbearing mother. She controls everything in lamar’s life from friend to what he eats and when he worksout. It;s her fault as to why lamar is not playing for the Lakers. She is pissed because she knows she’s not going to be as relevant anymore. I feel sorry for Lamar more than anyone. You noticed when Kourtney asked if they could ask Lamar Khloe looked panicked. when Bruce was giving him advice Khloe was seething. If you take a deep look at Khloe and Lamar’s relationship you will see that it’s very unhealthy. She is fine with Kardashian name when it brings her her fortune. I think Kim going out with Kanye has also put a damper on Khloe because she knows that kanye is a way bigger star than Lamar.

some men want a mother/manager as a wife. who are we to judge. it seems to me that khloe and lamar have an “us against them” attitude about the world, and i think it’s a good one. she needs a boss, and he likes to be bossed in certain ways. who says that’s wrong. that the girl put her marriage before a reality tv show tells me (and the world) that she values her marriage more than this nonsense. i think kim and khloe mean well, but they really just don’t get it. scott wouldn’t want that from khloe, so she doesn’t get it. and kim only cares about money-grubbing and fame while it’s in front of her, so she doesn’t get any other prioritization. it’s laughable that kim thinks she knows more than khloe… i mean, utterly laughable. but, if i were khloe, i would not be laughing. i would be insulted and FURIOUS with that two dimensional twit.

I think it’s funny that people get off on trashing these girls beyond all logic. I think that Lim and Kourtney crossed a line because they know how Khloe is about Lamar. I don’t think it’s laughable that Kim would give her advice. Here is the deal. It’s known that Kim puts business first. why do people always equate that with money grubbing, fame whoring etc. Kim works hard for her money and a lot of her work is done off camera. Both Kim and Kourtney put wok before relationships. That doesn’t make them bad it just makes them different from their sister.

I THINK NO ONE BUT BRUCE REALLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT COMING BACK TO LA REALLY WAS ABOUT! THEY WERE TREATING IT LIKE THEY JUST DECIDED TO COME HOME WHEN IN REALITY THEIR LIVES WERE TORN UPSIDE DOWN!
LAMAR WAS FIRED! HE IS 32 YRS OLD AND WAS JUST FIRED FROM A TEAM. HIS CHANCES OF RECOVERING HIS CAREER IN THIS SITUATION IS A LONG SHOT FOR MOST PLAYERS AND SHE WAS RIGHT TO TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY! YES SHE HAD TO TAKE DRASTIC STEPS UNLESS SHE WANTED A UNEMPLOYABLE HUSBAND IN HIS CHOSEN PROFESSION! AT 32 FOR HIM TO COME BACK FROM THAT SITUATION IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE WHEN THE TEAMS ARE REALLY LOOKING FOR THE NEXT FRESH OUT COLLEGE SUPERSTAR THAT THEY DON’T HAVE TO PAY 8 MILLION DOLLARS SO YES THEY HAD A LOT TO LOOSE AND THAT IS WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN WORRING ABOUT BUT IF ONE OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS ARE GOING TO GIVE THEM 8MILLION AND PAY HIS CHILD SUPPORT THEN YES SHE SHOULD STOP WORRYING ABOUT LAMAR AND JUST DO EVERYTHING HER FAMILY WANTS HER TO DO.

Khloe is an entitled b**** who thinks being married makes her superior. Is she Lamar’s wife or mother? He cant book his own workouts? talk to his own agent? Is he retarded?

Kourtney & Kim were spot on. They were just asking her to come to dinner not Africa. That girl is such a drama queen.

I’ll side with Khloe on this issue. She’s supporting her husband. She doesn’t have to be obligated to go to every single thing that Kim, Kourtney and her mother Kris has to go to. She’s a married woman now and she wants to support her husband Lamar Odom through his trade to another team. At this time, he must have been removed from Dallas, but he is with the L.A. Clippers. I thought that Kim and Kourtney’s exchanges with Khloe were completely arrogant and self centered! She’s on her own now and I think she wants to put Lamar first even if she wants to distance herself from the forced nature of her sisters and her mother Kris. Only Bruce Jenner was supportive of Khloe than the others.I imagined NSYNC’s 2000 hit Bye Bye Bye playing in the background of the show as the true kiss off song to her sisters.

I understand where Kim and Kourt have family 1st, but it is noticable that they see eachother more often but because they have the show I am sure once the show is done and don’t have a contract with E kim will focus more on her relationship with Kanye. Family is important but they will realize once their show ends they need to put their happiness first.
