Khloe Sees Why Lamar Keeps His Father Distant on 'Khloe and Lamar' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 11th 2011 3:09AM
Lamar Odom, 'Khloe & Lamar'It's difficult to put yourself in someone else's shoes. On the series premiere of 'Khloe & Lamar' (Sun., 10PM ET on E!), Khloe finally got an opportunity to peer a little deeper into the strained relationship between her husband Lamar and his father Joe.

Because Khloe comes from the tight-knit Kardashian family, where everyone is involved and supportive, it's almost impossible for her to fathom why someone would want to be distant from a member of his or her immediate family.

Perhaps because of the loss of her own biological father, Lamar's distance from his father must be even more difficult to understand.

But in a single phone call, in which Lamar's father used a million different angles to try to get some money out of him, Khloe saw that Joe was nowhere near the dad her father and Bruce have been to her and her siblings.

Sometimes family relationships are just broken and there isn't much you can do about it. Maybe Lamar will reach out to his father to try and help him through whatever he's dealing with, but Joe needs to be ready to be something different than he's being right now to Lamar. He needs to try to be a man and a father.

Right now, he's sad and pathetic, and you can see how it's hurting Lamar every time they talk. It hurts him that this is who his father has become, and it hurts him to tell his father no. But he knows it's what he has to do, or the situation will only get worse.

Watch a bonus clip in which the couple talk about each other's annoying habits:

HOPEFULLY, KHLOE DOESN'T DO WHAT TIGER WOODS' WIFE DID TO HIM: MARRY, HAVE A COUPLE OF KIDS,
AND DIVORCE AS A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE. THESE KIND OF WOMEN KNOW WHERE TO GO TO GET THE DOUGH.

The Kards have really made something out of nothing, that much is TRUE. They are hilarious though. The youngest sister, also physically the biggest, likes to talk like a baby. The middle sister, the sexy Marsha figure, hasn't been able to hold the man she wanted(Bush, but good riddance) and the eldest sister, by rule the example, unwed baby momma with a jerk on her hands. If an author wrote this mess, it would not be believed! I can't turn away from a train wreck either! As far as Lamar goes, I can't call it from just the phone calls. If I had millions I would expect the money conversations, get them out of the way(to whatever end) and then move the conversation on to something else. Lamar lacks the techniques required to navigate through difficult relationships. It may be stuck where it is long-term if steps aren't taken to try and remedy the current direction. In a word, it takes 'effort.'

Serious? Just because Lamar is a multi-millionaire, that doesn't entitle his father to ANYTHING. From the sounds of things, his "dad" is only trying to manipulate money from his son. Don't forget the saying, "once you feed a stray cat, it will never go away." The same philosophy applies to this situation...

Khloe didn'et want anything to do with her father. Remember the episode when her mom wanted them to all go visit his grave on the annivesary of his death, all 3 girls told her it was stupid and would not go with her, Now that's missing a dad.

I HATE THESE CELEBRITIES THAT BEOME RICH AND FAMOUS AND FORGET THEIR FAMILY. FORGET THEIR ROOTS. THEY SHOULD BE ASHAME TO LAY UP ON SILK SHEETS ORDER 100 DOLLARS STEAKS WHILE THEIR SIBLINGS AND PARENTS LIVE ON SS.

You obviously didn't watch the episode....Lamar's dad was a leech, and was constantly asking for money even though he had an allowance and Lamar paid his rent.... Would you support a parasite with a drug habit??

well if there families actually got up off their ass and worked instead of mooching then celebrities wouldnt have to mooch. its one thing to look after your family and throw some cash their way here and there and its another if they feel that you owe it to them. Fame makes people get stupid. i commend Lamar for keeping his distance. I know it must be hard and i'm sure he loves him but who knows what he would have done with that money...drugs, alcohol....?? And props to Khloe for standing by his side. Family doesn't always have your best interests in mind.

Really can't stand the Kardashians and when will their 15 minutes of fame ever be up. The whole family is so classless and it really speaks to America today that these jokes are famous for nothing. The joke is on the commercial sponsors, because they seem to have no idea that the average American does not like this family of users and manipulaters.

They are far from classless. Yes they don't really have any talent in regards to acting, singing, etc. But they are smart business people. They managed to make millions by endorsing products, selling merchandise and hosting their own series of reality shows. Now you can hate, but making something out of nothing is pretty impressive.
