khloe and lamarI know that some people are staunchly anti all things Kardashian. I am not one of those people. Neither, I hope, are you. For one thing, they are way too easy of a target. I don't think you need to be particularly smart or clever to slander these strangers. Are they smart? Yes. Are they downright cunning when it comes to controlling how their image is presented to the public at large? Totally. But being controlling isn't evil.

These latest rumors being bandied about Khloe Kardashian seem intent on destroying her reputation. They don't just seek to dissect her personal life. They go a step further. They are out to make her look like an evil person. Seriously, they stop juuuust short of saying she's a murderer. But barely.

It's, like, if Khloe isn't going to address what's going on with her marriage to Lamar Odom, they are going to make her pay or something. It's extremely messed up. While sure, there's an argument for picking and choosing what you share (or overshare) with the public, she's been vocal about trying to strike a balance. Her privacy is important to her. She shouldn't be bullied by the press this way.

The latest that's got me all sad-faced? A rumor circulating that the reason Khloe hasn't divorced Lamar yet is because if he dies, she'll get a huge insurance payout. Please! That goes past bad to straight up evil. I can't for a minute believe it's something Khloe would do. When 'sources' say she just wants Lamar to get help? I believe that over some shady rumors. Plus, leaving morality aside -- the woman is not hurting for dollars.

Do you think there's any way this rumor could be true, or do you think Khloe's being persecuted?
