Last night was the premiere of “Khloe and Lamar,” yet another show focused around a Kardashian. Every time I think that this family and their 15 seconds of fame are up, E! gives them another show. I blame Ryan Seacrest and all those random commercials that feature them eating salads and working out. All over twitter, people were tweeting their excitement for this new show, making me further question why people are so obsessed with this family. So I watched (I’m not proud to say), and here’s what I thought.
First of all, and this is not to offend any Lakers’ fans, but as a Celtic’s fan, I cannot take Lamar Odom seriously when he’s on a reality show dealing with “dramatic issues.” I guess I can now understand why people in Boston thought it would be hilarious to wear Khloe masks during last year’s NBA finals. Though the premiere episode was sad and emotional (all the ingredients for a good reality show), I just couldn’t get past how annoying Khloe is.
To me, she’s the “other” Kardashian, even though there are a million and four Kardashian sisters, or at least it feels that way. She likes to hear herself talk, so she does…a lot. So much to the point where I just sat and wished for the next commercial. She thinks that because her family is super close, so close they need to show the world every Sunday, that Lamar’s family should be like that, too. Okay that sounds great and all, but not when Lamar’s dad is a drug addict. Cue the sad music and that is the only non-sarcastic part of this post.
Khloe tries to reunite them and that is just one big mess. All his dad wants is money, not that you can really blame him, can you imagine how much money these people make for sitting around filming their lives? I can, and it’s ridiculous. But the moral of the story is that a. Some families are not perfect, and b. Khloe needs to stop with the prying/Khloe needs to not have shows where she is the star.
So in conclusion, I most likely plan to never watch this show again because it’s only a matter of time before there’s another Kardashian spin-off. Personally, I’m waiting on a Bruce Jenner talk show spin-off…anyone else with me?
