Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom are pulling the plug on their E! spinoff show

You know how I keep telling you guys that my mom watches crappy reality programming like The Voice and Ice Loves Coco? Not that Ice Loves Coco is a terrible show – at all. If a marathon of Ice Loves Coco is on, I’ll totally watch it. I keep talking about this stuff because my mom always recaps her favorite shows whenever we go out to lunch, and she’s admitted that Khloe & Lamar is one of her favorites too. She loves both Khloe and Lamar. I mean… I like them, but I don’t feel the need to watch their show or anything. Still, I acknowledge that their spinoff show is popular, and it has a following, and some people are really rooting for this marriage to work out in the long run. So… this news is interesting. Khloe and Lamar have decided to pull the plug on their show!

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to pull the plug on their spin-off show “Khloe & Lamar.”

Sources tell TMZ, the show’s second season will be its last … because Lamar wants to focus on reviving his fizzling NBA career.

As we previously reported, Lamar was relegated to the Dallas Mavericks’ inactive list after putting up career low numbers this season. If he’s lucky, he’ll be traded. If not, who knows …

But we’re told Lamar is determined to make a comeback — and he feels he should focus on only one project. Lamar will be living in L.A. full-time and he’s hired trainers to help him get his game back.

According to sources, Khloe and Lamar WILL make occasional appearances on the reality mother ship,”Keeping Up with the Kardashians” — but that’s it. No mas.

[From TMZ]

I’m going to choose to believe that this is a good thing. That Khloe has decided that her marriage is more important to her than being pimped out by her mother. I want to believe that somewhere deep inside, Khloe knows that putting so much of her life and her marriage out there for public consumption probably isn’t the best idea, and she and Lamar made this decision together. Because somewhere deep inside, I’ve got to wonder if Lamar kind of blames Khloe and her family for his career slump, and I wonder if their marriage is struggling, big time. Whatever goes down between them, I do think it’s a good call to have it go down in private, though.

You know Kris Jenner is going to be PISSED.

    Great news!!!! Now if we could just get the rest of the klan to follow them.

    • bee says:

      Could it also be that the ratings for this season are down? I’m not sure if Lamar is seeking therapy, however, that is something he should do. Lamar is not the only player the Lakers traded and his performance took a turn for the worst when he went to Dallas. Yet, people assumed it would be Khloe that would have a problem in Dallas and it end up being Lamar.

      • dedi says:

        I totally believe it has everything to do with rating and not their marriage. A Kartrashian walking away from money.
        NO WAY.

    • leelee says:

      This is why I love Khloe and Lamar. The krap hit the fan where his game was concerned, and instead of focusing on being a reality star, he buckles down, goes home, hires trainers, and tries to get his mojo back. Khloe is an angel of a wife for putting her marriage first above all else, and doing whatever it takes for Lamar to recover livelihood. Can’t imagine Kim or Kris, doing that for their marriages EVER. People rag on Khloe because she’s not petite like Kim & Kourt, but she is awesome and Lamar scored himself the best Kardashian sister, hands down.

      • Annie Banks says:

        LeeLee first off the show got cancelled they did not quit! Khloe coming from the family she does is not one to back away from fame and fortune! I think you really need to stop drinking that Kardashian koolaid! Poor Lamar he needs to run from this family! By the way had to laugh at the other nights show when Rob arrived at their condo and Khloe who was supposed to have been in bed is in full makeup mode with bright orange lipstick on! Yeah she is the one who acts the most down to earth! GMAFB would ya! Oh yeah forgot thank goodness that show will not be on tv anymore!

  2. hairball says:

    Thank the f*ck god.

    • Rice says:

      Yes, indeed hairball. I think we should increase our sacrificial offerings so we can get the rest of them off tv.

  3. G says:

    Good for them. I’m rooting for them.

  4. Pat Dorty says:

    Yeah!, one down one to go. I can’t believe all of the idiots who watch their shows and think they’re real.

  5. po says:

    If she’s got money coming in from all of the crap they sale she really doesn’t need cameras following them around. I think its been a tough year for them. The only person I think could stand so much attention would be Kanye. Kim and Kanye are perfect for each other. I’m just waiting for the reality show.

  6. Jayna says:

    Smart move…plus I find Lamar boring. The guy Issa great basketball player. He needs to concentrate on that.

  7. Launicaangelina says:

    I root for them. Khloe just gives a different vibe from the rest of the family. I am not a faithful fan of the show but I’ll catch an episode every now and then. I also wonder if the show is impacting their marriage and his game. Maybe having the spotlight off of them will help them conceive…

  8. That girl says:

    Truth be told- the show kinda sucks compared to Keeping Up. Not that that’s a gem but…

  9. J O'C says:

    I think she really loves him – this isn’t just some publicity stunt. That she would [sort of] step out of the Kardashian machine so that her husband can focus on his basketball career says a lot.

    • Annie Banks says:

      Perhaps she does love him but I think she is just with him for the prestige of it all. For starters she is a Kardashian and they all love the money and the fame that it comes with. Its really too bad that 95% of the world really does not care for them and Ryan Seacrest has them believing people actually care for them. They are one family who really needs counseling and one who needs to learn boundaries as well as what true class is!

  10. Agnes says:

    good for them! hope things work out for them.

  11. lucy2 says:

    She doesn’t seem as horrible as the rest, hopefully she and her husband realize that none of that is good for them. Stopping the show sounds like a good idea.

    • Annie Banks says:

      Are you kidding? She has the mouth of ten truck drivers and has no class what so ever! She is playing the part at being oh Khloe the ever so wonderful sister who loves all! She is a devil in sheeps clothing just like her mother! They all are!

  12. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Well thank goodness. No one needs to view their sex life, and they should not be pimping it out for the world to see. Good for them and any former or potential viewer of their show.

  13. Kate says:

    Have to say like her the best of all of them and she looks fab in that dress! LOVE!

  14. WaywardGirl says:

    I can’t stand the Kardashians but I’ve always liked Khloe the best.

  15. jover says:

    My day is already better.

  16. Hubbahun says:

    what does ‘no mas’ mean?

  17. Cathy says:

    I don’t like the way she’s wearing her hair with that dress/shirt whatever it is. It’ makes her face look and fatter. I also never realized before, but she does have a decent set of legs on her.

  18. Stubbylove says:

    I’d pull the plug too if my husband had no job (the NBA is done with him – if he’s lucky he could play for a European team) and I basically did nothing all day except get ready to go out. I like Khloe – only one I can stand – this is good – she needs to find her own way.

  19. Roxy750 says:

    Smart move.

  20. TG says:

    I used to be a big fan of the entire Kartrashian shows but have not watched any episodes of Kloe & Lamar. Don’t know if that is just because Kimmie Dear and Mommy dearest have finally killed it for me of if Kloe and Lamar are just boring. Because I am secretly looking forward to the Kartrashian’s show in May and still have no interest in watching Kloe and Lamar. That being said she was great on the show with the family and I think her not being a true Kartrashian is a big reason why she is different in a good way.

    • person3514 says:

      I don’t understand why everyone thinks her not being a Kardashian really makes her different.

      In my opinion, this family behaves the way they do because of the mother. I think their personality traits are like thier mothers, which unfourtanately they all have in common.

      Maybe Khloe is just the most decent thing that could have appeared out of that cave…

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Agreed. Pimp Mama Kris is the (evil) driving force behind this fame-whoring family. I just hope Khloe & Lamar make it, as they seem to really care for each other.

  21. Rice says:

    I’m a huge Star Wars fan. Thus it pains me to know that Chewbacca will no longer be getting it’s own reality show. Somehow Keeping up with the Kartrashians does not do it for my wookie fix.

  22. Candyland says:

    I feel bad for Lamar. He was an LA Laker. Then a Dallas something or other. Now he’s just an inactive ball player. Sucks.

    Bet HE pulled the plug on the show. Hope he gets his groove back.

    • Abby says:

      Not to nit-pick, but the Dallas Mavericks were the 2011 NBA Champions…. Not really “something or other.”

      • KJ says:

        Yyyyyeaaa, let’s not try and diminish the Mavericks here. They were the champs last year after beating the Miami Heat (a team with 2 of the best players in the league, LeBron and D Wade), and have the German powerhouse that is Dirk Nowitski.

        And when he was with the Lakers the year prior, he had his best year. He was named 6th man of the year, no small feat. He was bitter about being sent to Dallas, which I’m sure was compounded by the Kardashians being LA-based and his obvious deep connection to his team mates like Kobe and Derek Fisher. That reality show didn’t help. This seems like the smart thing to do. When you go from being one of the top players on a top team, to the most anticipated player for another top team, to the D-leagues, then to unemployment, something there is wrong.

  23. me says:

    Was the show getting ratings? I have seen it and thought it lacked something…just not that interesting. They will still be on “keeping up with the kardashians”…I mean khloe just signed a new 3 year deal and lamar as well (though his pay cut is way smaller). I bet they are making room for Kim’s spinoff instead.

    • Carolyn says:

      Poor Khloe. Now Mama Kris has taken away her own show to make room for “Kween Kimmy and King Kanye: Too Kool for Skool”. Gotta have Konnexions. The lengths this family goes to to try and keep relevant is beyond words.

  24. Mia says:

    Good for them. It’s nice to see a couple in Hollywood that actually cares so much about each other.

  25. Kim says:

    THEY are pulling the plug? Try the plug pulled itself! He has no job & doesnt want a baby with her anymore. I think they will be divorced soon & that doesnt make for a good husband/wife realty show. Plus no one ever wanted to watch her, she is Kim K sister hence why she gets even a speck of attention.

  26. Kim says:

    Oh no! How ever we will get our fill of a fugly, vapid, grown ass woman, baby talking to her husband & speaking to him like he is a total idiot?

  27. TXCinderella says:

    Lamar was let go by the Mavs under a “mutual agreement” cover. I didn’t really think they would last long here, even though fans accepted them with open arms. Out of all the Kadashian clan, Khloe and Lamar were the most likeable. I think they both missed the limelight of living in L.A.

  28. Rux says:

    I am totally behind Khloe & Lamar. I believe their relationship/marriage is not “for show” and they really care about each other. I am sad to see the show go as I actually liked watching it with my mom BUT I am happy they pulled the plug and Lamar will focus on basketball and Khloe on keeping their lives private. I pray so much she gets preggo. But just remember, they will not hurt for money as E! gave that whole family $40 mm which Khole and Lamar have their own side deal. I wish them the best.

  29. Lynne says:

    I think it is being dropped rather than them deciding for the sake of his career. Lamar has been filming all week in NY for the mother show, IMO he loves the cameras.

  30. gg says:

    Wait – I thought they got canceled.

    One down, how many more crap shows to go? Not counting the future Kim Kloves Kanye …

  31. zoey says:

    Good. Now take Kris J, Kim, Kourtney and the rest of your useless family, begone.

  32. tonina says:

    I think they are the less bad of all the Karkrashians.

  33. MB says:

    Girls got great legs and that leather jacket in the first pic is delicious. I want.

  34. Dana says:

    I also wonder if pimp mama’s shameless schmooze of Mavs owner Mark Cuban contributed to K&L’s decision.
