And no, not for falling under the crack-like spell of the Kardashians again and returning to the inner pimp circle. That’s not an addiction recognized by the medical community (yet). We recently found out that Lamar Odom was caught boozing at a bar only a few hours before the Kardashian family’s annual Easter Sunday church parking lot photo op. Sources told TMZ that Lamar pregamed before church to show Khloe Kardashian that he’s healthy enough to be drinking again. Well, TMZ says that Khloe isn’t buying it, and she wants to get his possibly-relapsing ass into rehab. Khaptain Save-A-Ho-For-Ratings to the rescue!
Sources close to Khloe (so basically Khloe trying to look productive on the set of Kocktails with Who Kares) claim that Khloe is doing everything she can to get Lamar into treatment before shit goes off the rails and we get a repeat performance of 2013 Lam Lam. Lamar is apparently OK with physical rehab, but he refuses to go to the kind where you sit in a circle and acknowledge your demons while clutching a mug of coffee with both hands. Sources say Khloe offered up an outpatient program, and Lamar still wasn’t having it.
A source tells TMZ that Lamar’s family, including his two kids, are backing Khloe up on her rehab request. They’re not confident Lamar can do the casual alcohol thing because addiction problems run in their family.
While Khloe is dedicated to Lamar’s recover, she’s apparently not that dedicated. Khloe has reportedly told friends and family that there will come a time where she stops trying to “save” Lamar. You know, when she gets a call from the network telling her that the “Khloe Saves Lamar” story line is no longer doing well with KUWTK audiences. But if Khloe isn’t saving Lamar, what will her character do? I guess they could always give her a multi-season story arch about finally seeing a white penis.
