Now that they’ve both been exiled from the Kardashian family, Bruce and Lamar are turning to each other for support. Bruce even called Lamar on New Year’s Day to give him some fatherly advice for 2014, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
When he’s not keeping up with the Kardashians, Bruce Jenner is making it his business to be there for Lamar Odom.

Bruce, 64, wants Lamar, 34, to let go of all the pain he suffered in 2013 and try to move forward with his life. That’s why he told Lamar that it would be in his best interest to refrain from watching the Kardashian family’s famous reality TV show — because it will only make him suffer.
Bruce told Lamar to “hope for the best but expect the worst when it comes to that show and what they’re going to reveal because this is how they survive — by putting everything on the table,” a source close to Lamar tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We hope Lamar listens to Bruce’s advice!

We’re told Bruce and Lamar spent an hour on the phone on New Year’s Day, Jan. 1, because Bruce wanted to make sure that Lamar was mentally well.
“He told Lamar to forget about everything that happened in 2013 and not drag all the drama, defeats and embarrassments with him,” the source reveals. “Bruce told him, ‘It will eat you alive and ruin any progress if you stay in the past.’ He also told Lamar to stay off the websites and turn the TV off and not listen to gossip about him. He basically gave Lamar a lot of advice and mental support.”
We’re so glad Lamar has someone to turn to during this difficult time. So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think that Bruce gave Lamar good advice? Let us know.
