Khloe — it could not have been easy to allow the cameras to roll while you shared the devastation of your marriage falling apart, but you did it with grace and class.
Khloe Kardashian, there’s no doubt that your viewers’ hearts were aching for you as you opened up about your very personal problems with Lamar Odom on the two-part Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiere. Khloe, it’s astounding and admirable that you shouldered the burden of your marriage falling apart, virtually alone for two years, before finally revealing your agonizing situation first to your family and then to your viewers.
Khloe Kardashian Is Courageous For Revealing Her Lamar Odom Heartbreak On ‘KUWTK’
The two-part season premiere really opened up the curtain on the terrible issues you’ve been dealing with as you tried to protect Lamar.
It was smart to actually decide to deal with the Lamar situation on the show. So many questions have been asked about it, and there’s been so much rumor and conjecture, that it was wise to address it and set the record straight, in the most positive and protective way possible.
“It’s my job to protect Lamar,” you said during the show. And for that reason, you had kept Lamar’s alleged drug issues quiet from the world and especially from his basketball teammates and management, while you tried to get him help, even though you felt like a ‘shattered’ person.
When you finally tell your sisters what’s been going on during the show, they all express their support but also say that they don’t know what to do to help.
Khloe, you must have felt so lonely for all the time that you were alone with your breaking heart. Only Rob Kardashian, who lived with you, was aware at all about Lamar’s sad breakdown and the disintegration of your marriage.
Khloe Kardashian: ‘It’s My Job To Protect Lamar’
In fact, your mom, Kris Jenner, was stunned when you revealed to her on the Jan. 20 episode that you hadn’t seen Lamar in two months.
Khloe — what makes this situation so incredibly hard for you is that it’s clear on KUWTK that you still love Lamar so much, and clearly a part of you was hopeful for so long, that he would come to his senses and get help.
You never say on negative word about Lamar on the show. You are extremely respectful and protective of him. In fact, you even enlist Kourtney and Kim to talk to Lamar on the phone and convey their love and support to him.
Kim tells Lamar that he’s “family” and that he always will be, no matter what happens.
Even when Lamar’s father, Joe, goes to RadarOnline and says that he wishes Lamar had never married Khloe, and that “she’s controlling,” and that she hurt his career, Khloe takes the high road. She never blames Lamar for his father’s unkind ,extremely hurtful and of course, untrue, words.
Khloe carries off the extremely difficult role of honestly revealing her heartache while also placing Lamar in the best possible light.
She does this all with dignity, courage and class.
Don’t you agree, HollywoodLifers? Let me know.
