It was dour o'clock for the Kardashians this week on the show. Minus Scott Disick trying to appropriate Native American culture, there weren't really any laughs, as it were. Instead, we got the moment we (grief vultures that we are) have long been waiting for. Khloe Kardashian decided to officially file from divorce from her husband, Lamar Odom. It was pretty gut-wrenching. I mean, they basically ended the show with a black-and-white montage dedicated to Lamar that wasn't in any way different from the one they did for Scott's mom last week. You know, the woman who actually died. Awkward.
We all know that the show, and the family who are its stars, are the masters of micromanagement. So how Khloe REALLY reached her decision to legally and physically leave Lamar isn't something we'll ever really know. And, you know, we shouldn't. Because as much as over-exposure is their business, I encourage this impulse to maintain their own, separate-from-T.V. private lives.
