The marriage between Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian, in no small part due to the several reality shows that the couple has been on as well as the Kardashian brand being so well-known. Still, there are aspects of their lives that aren’t caught on camera. Now, the former NBA star is ready to tell-all in a new memoir.
Released last Tuesday, Darkness To Light: A Memoir is Odom’s personal account on the darker aspects of his life that he hasn’t shared with the public. The central topic of the book is Odom’s drug addiction, which caused the basketball star to go to some dark places.
Among some of the darker passages in the book, Odom recalls a time where he was hallucinating on cocaine and got upset at Khloé for trying to hold an intervention. At one point, he even threatened her life and started smashing walls.
“At that point, I couldn’t tell reality from fantasy. I was on ecstasy and coke. I was sure that people were coming for me. They wanted to get me.”
The drug addiction also lead Odom to become a sex addict, with his infidelity being the prime reason for the deterioration of his marriage. Many of his more outrageous sexual escapades are documented, as well as a specific moment where Khloé caught him and took her anger out on the women violently.
Khloé has not publicly commented on any of the things Odom has wrote, but according to Odom she did text him privately and that the conversation was friendly.
Have you been following all the Kardashian drama? Will you be picking up Odom’s memoir?
I’m going to start this off by saying that Khloe Kardashian does not deserve all the shit that’s been happening to her. Say what you want about the family, but Khloe has always been my favorite. She’s the HBIC. She’s the realest, most likable “character” on the show. Maybe it’s because she’s the black sheep; never really fitting in because she’s too big, too tall, maybe she’s OJ’s daughter, maybe she’s someone else’s daughter, maybe she’s not even a Kardashian!Khloe has to deal with a whole different ball game of bullshit in the media, and she’s better for it.
Seriously, convince me otherwise that Khloe has gotten the short end of the stick. She deserves to be happy, damn it.
After E! hits like Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami, or whatever else they put on TV, Khloe finally got her own show, Revenge Body, but when you realize how totally messed up the whole thing is, you really feel for her.
So is Revenge Body revenge on who, your bitch-ass family for being assholes? I’ve never seen the show, so that’s what I’m choosing to believe.
Not only is she the whipping boy for her famous family, or so it seems, but her struggle in love is relatable if anything could ever be. Woman is hot as hell, entertaining, provocative, hilarious, and doing her best despite being “The Ugly Kardashian”, which I don’t agree with. Because none of them are ugly. It’s their job to be stunning.
Girl can’t get a break. She marries who she thinks is the man of her dreams, only to have that not work out, then a series of crap relationships (same, girl), before finally getting what she’s always wanted – a baby. The love the tallest Kardashian received when she announced her pregnancy was outstanding. I contributed to it. We were all rooting for you, girl. All of us. Because you deserve it.
But then this shit,

Girl, join the club. There are so many sob stories out there for good (or at a minimum, decent) women falling for idiots who treat them like how you treat your iPhone after you’ve decided that you’re not going to replace that broken screen.
This is one of my favorite list titles on this listicle of list titles, because it’s beautifully specific. Angst in romance novels might as well be oxygen, because the air is usually so tense you can cut it with a knife. I have enough angst in my life as it is, so I’m down for anything low-angst.
I’m not gunna lie, finding lists to fill out this article was difficult. Most of the romance novel lists on Goodreads have titles like Best Dirty Talker in Romance and Stalkerific Romance Novel Heroes. People really fetishize terrible relationships, and I don’t get it. There are enough crap relationships in real life, why is reading about disfunction so fantastic? Let’s give an all around honorable mention to honorable people.
