The second the news broke that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were having problems in their marriage, majorly caused by Lamar Odom's drug issues, I was probably a little too torn apart for someone who doesn't actually KNOW the couple. But how could I not be?! Just like every other E! sucker, I was totally envious about how adorable the couple was from the second they decided to get married in like .3 seconds. Which is why the latest news that Khloe and Lamar are on the brink of reconciliation has me ecstatic. Team Khlomar, YES!
Apparently Lamar has apologized, pledged to rid his life of drugs, and is willing to take drug tests whenever Khloe asks him to going forward. Odom told Us Weekly this past Wednesday that he and Khloe are indeed "back on track" and "unbreakable." It really sounds like Lamar is willing to do whatever it takes to save his marriage. Maybe I'm a sucker. I just think the two of them have the kind of love that's worth fighting for. I believe they can make it work.
Why am I so convinced despite all the cheating allegations and all this horrifying drug use talk that Lamar and Khloe are gonna make it out on the other end of this together? Well, it just sounds like Lamar is literally willing to do anything and everything to make this work. It sounds like he's learned a lesson. An insider told Radar Online:
Lamar has also stopped hanging out with his shady drug friends, and has cut off all contact with them. There was a time when Khloe would call Lamar and he wouldn’t call her back for hours, or even days ... Now, whenever Khloe calls him, Lamar almost always answers the phone, and if he doesn’t, he calls her back right away.
I'm convinced that Lamar had a SERIOUS addiction that just ruined him internally and ate at his marriage and relationship with Khloe. Now after making en effort to rid his life of these demons, I hope that he and Khloe can make this work. More importantly, I wouldn't mind seeing them renewing their vows in an E! special within the next year.
Do you believe Lamar is genuine about making things work with his wife?
