Although Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have been kaput for awhile (she filed for divorce last December after months of swirling rumors of impending marriage doom), we're just now watching some of the drama unfold on the brand new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Including Khloe's emotional reaction to being forced to leave the home she shared with Lamar during their marriage before she was ready. When it was clear things were over, Khloe put the house on the market, but wasn't expecting it to sell in a lickety-split four days.
E! Online shared a bonus clip from Sunday night's premiere episode of KUWTK, and Khloe looks like she's in a bit of a stupor trying to figure out what to pack, what to keep, what to sell with the house -- which she had listed as furnished. And the kicker is that she only has 10 days to do it in.
With her bestie Malika on hand to help and for moral support, Khloe laments, "It's a lot for me to handle and a lot of stress ... I don't know what I'm willing to part with and I don't know where I'm moving so I don't know what I want to take."
Malika advises her to take it "a step at a time," and "start with the groundwork," as Khloe wraps fancy china plates in bubble wrap.
"Just start with the groundwork," Malika advises Khloé in an attempt to calm her nerves. "Take it a step at a time."
"It's really hard to move when I have to make all these decisions by myself," Khloe responded. "I'm not ready to leave my house. It wasn't supposed to sell this fast!"
It must've been a total emotional roller coaster for the reality star. We saw last season that Khloe ended up living out of her car for awhile rather than stay in her marital home, but she ended up back there, seemingly defeated. With that in mind, you think she'd be more than eager to get rid of it, but there's a sort of finality that happens once papers are signed and new owners are ready to move in.
And I think it's interesting that Khloe bemoaned having to make all the decisions herself and not being quite ready to move on because it's freaking hard to make all the hard decisions yourself is indicative of the larger problem with her marriage to Lamar.
Lamar seems to be very controlling, and unable to face the reality of what a crappy husband he was to Khloe. They couldn't sit down and have an honest conversation about their marriage being over -- instead Khloe had to do it herself, while her clinger ex-husband went on to say, "She'll always be my wife, no matter what."
It's hard to make to all those tough decisions on your own, with no help from the one person who was supposed to love you best. Thankfully, we know that Khloe seems to have moved on since this episode was filmed, and hopefully all of her Lamar baggage got left behind at the house. Now if she could just get divorce finalized ...
Are you surprised that Lamar was MIA when Khloe was deciding what to keep and what to sell with the house?
