'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Season 17: Khloe Kardashian praises Lamar Odom for talking about his addiction
In 'Darkness to Light' Odom has spoken about how Khloe is the love of his life and how thankful he is to the entire Kardashian family for accepting him for who he was and for making him a better person
It won’t be long before fans get to see The Kardashian family back in their element as the famous family’s reality show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ season 17 will be premiering on channel E! on September 8, 2019. Over the years, fans have been treated to ample amount of drama, controversies and gossip thanks to the Kar-Jenner clan giving fans a peek into their lives through the show.
Apart from their respective businesses, some of the sisters even have their own spin-offs after the show 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' first aired in 2007 where Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian made their debut on television along with younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and their mother Kris Jenner as the manager and producer of the show.
While initially a fair bit of the show’s seasons revolved around Kim and sometimes Kylie, there were times when other sisters like Khloe also stole the spotlight and mostly it would be because of some personal upheaval in their lives.
Khloe’s personal life, as fans would know, has been through the wringer. She married former Lakers player Lamar Odom in 2009 a month after they met but by 2013 their relationship was on the rocks. Odom’s overdose put breaks on her divorce proceedings with the former NBA star and saw her support his recovery following which they finalized their split in 2016.
You’d think she would have sworn off relationships by then but then her heart led her to another athlete and that too a basketball player Tristan Thompson. Their relationship which began in 2016 heightened when they announced that they were expecting their first child by September 2017. What happened after that was media fodder. Tristan cheated on her when she was pregnant and despite her trying to salvage her relationship, his cheating ways put an end to all her hope. With the birth of her daughter True, Khloe is much more poised and has made the decision to let Tristan be part of his daughter’s life despite his indiscretions, their relationship, however, is as good as over. Khloe’s mature handling of the situations in her life has led many fans to be curious, some have also been critical of her decision to let Tristan into True’s life and her act of staying by Odom’s side during his overdose. Fans have been looking for answers as to why she made certain decisions and we hope the coming season will give us that.
In the season to come, Khloe is expected to reveal her feelings about ex-husband Odom as was teased in a video on August 25. It talks about how she perceives Odom’s attempt at painting his overdose and how she feels about his memoir. Odom, the 39-year-old basketball player has opened up about his addiction, to snorting insane amounts of coke and how deep his addiction was in 'Darkness to Light' his 2019 memoir. In the memoir, the NBA player has also spoken about his drug use and infidelity which caused an end to his marriage with Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe, however, has now moved on and will be speaking about how she found his decision to write a memoir a courageous one. In the preview clip from the show, Khloe is seen in Kim's house talking to her about the article that came out regarding Odom’s confession to the world. Khloe is very calm and supportive about his decision to open up and tell the world his truth. She believes that it shouldn't be something he should hide behind but be proud of his progress which will help the others too out there who are going through drug abuse issues and are finding it hard to leave or cope with.
Khloe goes on to tell Hollywood Life: " So it doesn’t bother me. I appreciate it’s so honest. It’s not all great but I appreciate the honesty in it". In his memoir, he has also written about how Khloe is the love of his life and he is so thankful to the entire Kardashian family for accepting him for who he was and making him a better person.
The former NBA player is happily dating Sabrina Parr who is a personal trainer and will be competing along with his new bae in 'Dancing with the Stars' Season 28.
