There comes a time in every new romantic relationship in which the partners' previous lives and new lives clash, and that time came for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom on this week's episode of Khloe & Lamar. Yes, trouble was brewing in la la in-love land as Khloe went head-to-head with Lamar's oldest best friend, Jamie.
It seems Lamar's heart is a little too big, and people tend to take advantage of him and his mega wealth. Jamie regularly was letting himself into Lamar and Khloe's apartment without notice, even smoking in there, and basically competing for Lamar's attention. But it was when Khloe discovered Jamie was slacking on his job running Lamar's Rich Soil clothing line that she finally lost it.
"I can’t just know this and not say anything," she said after learning that every single item on the site was supposedly sold out.
The classic best friend, new woman struggle began with Lamar stuck in the middle trying to negotiate as Khloe and Jamie tried to mark their territory. Khloe demanded he say something to Jamie, calling him an enabler, which he seems to be. Lamar gave the slacker slack because of a serious stomach surgery he'd had years ago and probably in general because he's so rich, he may as well buy friends along with everything else.
Khloe finally lost it and changed all the locks on their loft so Jamie couldn't get in without permission. Pretty reasonable for some newlyweds I'd say, but Jamie was pissed and told her she was "way out of line."
"So what? I’ve been around 20 years. You just popped up a year ago. Grow up," he told her, playing the tenure card.
"You grow up," Khloe shot back, just before he finally slammed the door in her face. So mature.
In the end, after Jamie told Lamar to "handle his wife," (whoa!) and they called a truce. Khloe agreed to let Lamar and Jamie handle the business side of things. We'll see how long that lasts. Jamie seems like trouble (and a bit of a jerk?), and I say good for Khloe for trying to make sure he doesn't take advantage of Lamar. Someone needs to.
The other plot line this week involved Rob Kardashian making a pathetic attempt at entering the music business with the BG5 girls. It was lame and doesn't deserve much mention beyond the fact that he had the funniest line of the night when he indignantly asked his mom, Kris Jenner, if she really thought he just wanted to sit around the house all day, play video games, chill, and live off of his family's money. Uh, yeah.
Did you think Khloe was out of line for getting involved in Lamar's business?
