Poor Khloe Kardashian! Will the disastrous aftermath of her marriage to Lamar Odom ne'er cease? I mean, clearly it has in her present-day life, but that isn't the case on this season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This week dealt with Khloe becoming a bit of a party girl to hide from the pain she was feeling. I'm not saying you should turn to drink in times of trial, but, like, the odd glass of bubbly does not an alcoholic make, yeah? *Herein the author pauses to take a sip of her delicious and refreshing chardonnay*
Everyone tried to intervene and get Khloe to open up. Seriously, everyone. Even Papa Brucie Jenner took a shot, though I gotta say -- his heart was barely in it. At the end of the day, only one thing really managed to crack her severely bronzed facade: When hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Lamar's jewelry was stolen as she was moving out of the home they once shared.
Stress is a funny beast. It can send you into peals of laughter in the grocery store when confronted with a line so long, the only logical reactions are tears or gnashing of teeth. It's no small wonder that this theft made Khloe collapse so utterly. It wasn't just the lost stuff that left her bereft. Even in her state of shock, Khloe acknowledged that there was more to this than lost dollars.
With the loss of the precious collection, Khloe was made to feel like a failure yet again: She felt like she let Lamar down! On top of that, someone had invaded her home, violated her trust, and made her feel unsafe at a point in her life when she was doing all she could to stay strong. Ohhhffff. It was like a punch to the gut to see Khloe quietly put all that guilt upon herself in the episode's final moments. I think it might have been the first time on the show that we really, REALLY saw the extent to which Khloe blames herself for the end of her marriage. Sadness!
Do you think Khloe has moved on since this episode aired?
