On the explosive finale of ‘KUWTK’ on Nov. 10, Khloe was forced to confront her marital problems with Lamar when it all became too much for her to take. Even Rob, the only family member who knew about the issues, admitted that maybe it was time to step away.
It was definitely one of the most emotional episodes ever on the season eight finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Khloe Kardashian reached her breaking point with Lamar Odom, admitting that she had been protecting him and that they had actually been having serious problems for years!
Khloe Kardashian: I Can’t Keep Protecting Lamar Odom
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick start the episode with a discussion about Lamar and the strange fact that they never see him — Lamar has never been to their house and the four of them have never had dinner together.
However, Khloe simply brushed it off when asked about it. Then, during a car ride with Kourtney, she got a call from her agent where she attempted to keep the conversation (which was obviously about Lamar) quiet. She revealed to the cameras — but not to her sister — that she has “protected” and “dodged a bullet” for Lamar repeatedly, but it’s beginning to be too much for her to control.
She turned to Rob for help, after revealing that he was the only one in the family who knew about the problems she was having with Lamar — the problems that have been going on for YEARS.
Khloe Realizes She Needs To Tell Her Family About Lamar
Khloe was clearly emotional talking to her brother; she even flashed back to her wedding with Lamar and moments of him with her family. However, she no longer knew how to help him.
“If someone, God forbid, gets their legs cut off or gets breast cancer, do you just leave someone because they’re like slowing down your life? I’m trying to help and save, but there’s nothing more I can do,” she said to her brother, who let her know that he’s hurting her, too, and it’s not ok — maybe it’s even time to back off.
While he wanted to support Khloe, Rob told her that in order to help himself, he was officially moving out to get away from the negativity. He ended their talk by saying that maybe it was a time for a change for all of them.
Khloe admitted that she’s at a war with herself — on one side just wanting to help Lamar but on the other feeling like maybe she has to walk away to really help him. Ultimately, she realized it was time to tell her family, and lean on them for help.
Kylie Jenner Celebrates Sweet 16
For the rest of the family, who don’t know about Lamar’s issues, it was time to plan Kylie Jenner‘s Sweet 16 party — but she decided to plan it all on her own.
While she and momager Kris Jenner butt heads at first, at the party Kris went on and on about how proud she was of her youngest daughter. So sweet!
When it came time for the party, Scott and Kourtney got in an argument of their own (for the umpteenth time) when he decided to drink more than she wanted. Naturally, Kourtney tells him to pull himself together, but later realizes that she was overacting, thanks to the level-headed Khloe.
Over all, the episode was extremely emotional, especially for Khloe, who proved that she is stronger than we’ve ever known. Are you surprised how much she opened up on the KUWTK finale? Let us know!
