Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom deal with his-and-hers family drama on 'Khloe and Lamar' premiere
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's newlywed reality series, "Khloe and Lamar," is officially here.
Kardashian, known as the youngest Kardashian sister on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Khloe Take New York," and her Lakers forward hubby debuted their show Sunday on E! with the hope that it would attract more viewers bearing the Y-chromosome.
"This show is very different from 'Keeping Up' and the 'Take On' series because those shows are so female-driven," she told PopEater. "This show is very much male-driven. It's Lamar and my brother Rob who lives with us, it's very masculine in a lot of ways, there's a lot of NBA footage, locker room footage and also a lot of us. Lamar and I as newlyweds and learning about each other and experiencing a lot of firsts that happen on camera."
The couple, who recently launched a unisex fragrance called "Unbreakable," married in September 2009 after a whirlwind romance. Their inevitable E! show chronicles their newlywed life, brother Rob Kardashian moving in, friendship with pals Malika Haqq and Jamie Sangouthai and a bevy of baby-making problems.
The premiere episode highlighted Odom's daddy issues when his father, Joe Odom, surprised Kardashian at a book signing with her sister Kourtney Kardashian. Kourtney, who had been working on a campaign to get Lamar on the NBA All-Star team, grapples with how to get Joe back into her husband's life. Turns out the man is just trying to bum a few dollars off his wealthy son.
"My father is someone I'd do anything for," Lamar Odom said. "But he's someone I don't let get too close."
What'd you think of the premiere? Will you keep watching?
