Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom's Marriage Even Stronger After Lakers Shocker

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

Even though Lamar Odom is still a Laker after a shocking trade deal that didn't go through, he's probably not having the best day. But guaranteed he's having a better day than he would have if not for wife Khloe Kardashian at his side.

Once again, she never ceases to amaze in the relationship department, at least for a Kardashian. Khloe's response to last night's big trade deal shocker was perhaps the most, loving, supportive, and positive gesture she could have made for her man.

Odom was in real bad shape last night. In "disbelief," actually. Showing up for practice today was probably pretty awkward after realizing now that if the team was considering a trade, they really don't want him, and will probably get rid of him at some point in the future.

Then in comes Khloe who says that if Lamar gets traded, she will go with him.

Well, ya! I know that's what you're thinking, that of course she should go with him. Lady don't deserve no medal for that! She's his wife and he's her husband and that's what loving, normal couples do for each other. But lest we forget, this is a Kardashian we are talking about. They are not regular people. Their minds work differently than ours.

They have reality shows. But Khloe clearly has her priorities straight. By saying she'd find a way to make her reality show work wherever she goes, she's making a bold statement about putting her marriage first, career second. Who knew!

Khloe is clearly the anti-Kim when it comes to dedication in relationships, but it wasn't naturally a given that she would have followed her husband out of L.A. on a full-time basis. Los Angeles is the Kardashian kingdom. It's one of the reasons Kim refused to move to the Midwest with Kris Humphries.

Let this incident serve as a reminder that Khloe is the real star of the family. I don't know if she really meant it from the bottom of her heart or it was just a well-advised good PR move at the time, but her track record when it comes to marriage and relationships is pretty good so far. What she said confirms that she at least knows the meaning of the word selfless, and that not all Kardashian relationships and marriages are doomed to dysfunction. Let's hope anyway. Keep going, girl.

Would you be sad if it ever became Kim and Khloe Take Detroit or Kim and Khloe Take Charlotte?

    It's not any bigger of a sacrifice than what military spouses make when we pick up and move every time our soldiers get orders. It's good she's not being a selfish brat like her sister, but it shouldn't be "news" when a husband or a wife agrees to move for their spouse's career. Most of us don't have NBA or Kardashian money for flights back home to see the family though. She can afford to fly back to LA every week if she felt like it.

    I think this shows how selfish is Kim wouldn't to Minnesota. That's why Khloe is in a successful marriage and Kim is twice divorced. I think Khloe does deserve to be commended, because look at her environment. It's surprising she made that decision with the people that surround her.

    People say that Miss Kloe is not the most attrative of the girls, she's overweight, she's a smartmouth etc., but I personaaly think she brings the most to the table and when she loves, it's with all her heart and for keeps. She is the MOST attractive, honorable, selflish, considerate member of that whole family besides Mr. Bruce. I'm proud of her that she has not gotten sucked into her family's ego or worse yet, KIM'S!! Good luck Kloe and Lamar.
