It was a big old family reunion in Dallas tonight on Khloe & Lamar. After just a month in the Lone Star State, Khloe and Lamar have been nothing but miserable, so a little burst of Kardashian family antics was just what they needed. Rob Kardashian was the first to arrive, followed by Kris Jenner, who showed up with two surprises -- Kim and Kourtney.
From the get-go Khloe was determined to make Rob fall in love with Dallas and stay. On the surface, she said it was because Rob and Lamar's bromance built Lamar up. "Rob is bringing the old Lamar back, and I love that," she said. But also because she had been completely lonely.
So rather than joining a newcomers' group or getting a puppy, she decided the only way to solve the problem was to make Rob move to Texas. Only Rob had finally started down the road to being a real-life grownup, and he didn't want to turn back. "I don't want to take a step backwards," he said. Too bad, said the rest of his family.
It wasn't just Khloe guilting him into the move either; Kenner, Kim, and Kourtney all told him it was basically his responsibility to make them happy. "I think you're not really thinking about Khloe," Jenner told him. The guilt trip they were all laying on him was unbelievable. For so long everyone has been crying that Rob needs to grow up, and now that he's finally ready, no one will let him.
Being a good brother is one thing, but it really shouldn't be the job of a 25-year-old man to hold his sister's hand when she's a little nervous in a new city. And to do what? "Just come and ball out," Lamar tried to entice him.

At first it looked like Rob was going to show some real big boy balls and actually live his own life despite all of it. "I just want to be independent and that’s all I’m focusing on now," he said. Then he caved. After they thought he had boarded a plane back to L.A., there was a knock at the door, and suddenly the old trio was back together again.
"I’m going to stay here to make you both happy and comfortable," he told them. Sweet for them, but really pretty sad for Rob.
Do you think it's crazy that the Kardashians persuaded Rob into staying in Dallas just so Khloe and Lamar would be comfortable?
