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?
