This is both surprising and not surprising at the same time. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are in couples therapy, according to reports. The reason it's not surprising? Well, because it seemed like the pair really loved each other at one point, and it's only natural to want to fix things. The reason it is surprising? Lamar's seemed averse to any therapy since day one of this whole mess. He went to rehab for less than 24 hours! He must really want to mend things with Khloe if he's going the therapy route.
But should Khloe be considering taking him back?
I think it's great that Khloe and Lamar are going to therapy, really, I do. And as much shit as I've talked about him since he cheated on Khloe and generally started acting like a massive yahoo, I'd be lying if I said a small part of me didn't want to see these two get back to where they were at some point. But I think it's going to take a lot more than mere therapy. Their problems are more on Lamar than Khloe, so it isn't fair or right if the only action he's taking is going to couples therapy. Lamar needs help on his own. For his depression, for his drug problems, for his cheating. Couples therapy may fix some aspects of their marriage, but definitely not all.

That said, it definitely bodes well for Lamar that Khloe is going to couples therapy with him in the first place. I honestly thought she was done. I kinda hoped she was done. But now, it seems like she's willing to give him a second chance. Let's just hope that she insists he does more than couples therapy. 'Cause that and that alone ain't gonna work.
Do you want to see Khloe and Lamar get back together?
