He’s talking and communicating, according to reports, and now HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Lamar Odom’s media interests could be potentially represented by Kris Jenner for his first TV interview after his collapse. Click here for the full details!
As Lamar Odom, 35, continues his recovery from the suspected drug overdose that caused his collapse at a brothel in Nevada on Oct. 13, his former mother-in-law Kris Jenner, 59, is planning on managing his media interests, including finalizing a deal for his first interview after his horror ordeal, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
And now Kris believes it could be the perfect opportunity to earn some dollar, while protecting Khloe and Lamar’s image at the same time, and hopes Oprah Winfrey, 61, may be on board.
“Kris is already thinking about the possibility of managing Lamar’s media interests for a money-spinning interview,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She thinks it’ll look better for his image, her daughter Khloe and would be a huge audience puller for any major network.”
The source goes on to say that Kris is obliged to present the idea to E! but would prefer to have Oprah, who interviewed both Khloe and Lamar before, take it for a OWN special.
“Kris would obviously give E! first option on it, but she wants to gage an interest first and see if she could attach a big name interviewer to the project, like Oprah Winfrey, who has interviewed Lamar before,” the source revealed.
It’s a little too early to say when this could happen, but given Lamar’s recent progress it could be a lot sooner than we think.
Meanwhile, as we previously told you, with Lamar showing signs off progress, his hospital room at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas has been filled with gifts and messages of support.
“The outpouring of support for Lamar has been overwhelming. He has a lot to live for,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s probably never known just how much he’s truly loved and by so many people. Khloe wants him to fully wake up so he can know and understand he’s not in this world alone!”
Do you think Kris should manage Lamar’s media interests for a big interview when he’s healthy enough, HollywoodLifers? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
