Khloe & Lamar was back tonight with the season premiere, and what a welcome dose of happiness after the depressing season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York we just finished. Twitter was on fire during and after tonight’s episode with people one after another declaring Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom the cutest couple ever. It’s hard to disagree.
They have such a fun and intense relationship. I loved when she said, “I’m obsessed with him,” and “I don’t see any reason there has to be an ending to the honeymoon phase.” Let’s face it, there usually is as the years go by, but it’s great to see her optimism and her extreme efforts to preserve it. Yes, I’m talking about the sex swing.
Talk about an OMG television moment. From putting it up herself with the help of her friend Malika, because who on earth would call a handyman to put it up, it was shocking, intriguing, and hilarious all at once. When it fell mid-use, it was one of those scenes that they couldn’t have scripted if they tried. Fortunately they both had a good sense of humor about it.
I did feel a little bad for Khloe when Lamar rejected her advances a couple of times, but he turned even that around into an incredibly sweet moment when he told her he doesn’t need all of the extreme crazy stuff (An entire sex den was a little too krazy, no?). “We have a passion that doesn’t have to be sexual,” he told her, which made her realize she doesn’t have to try so hard.
“What we have is pure and it’s always going to be here,” she said. Say it with me, “awwwwwww.” But just to save it from all being too sappy, they ended with a big old motorboat. Perfect.
There was also the sweet bromance between Lamar and Rob Kardashian. Though they hit a rough patch in their relationship, it was all fueled by love, and they're back on track. All in all, it was 30 minutes of feel good, which is a nice change from a lot of the drama that occupies most of our viewing hours. And, bonus: Part two of the premiere airs tomorrow night, so we get a double dose this week.
Can you think of any celebrity couples cuter than Khloe and Lamar? What did you think of the sex swing -- too much or intriguing?
