Khole Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s reality show is “on hold” just like the NBA star’s career. The couple are disputing reports the series was canceled. A rep told People, “It’s just on hold now while schedules are figured out. It will depend on their schedules, as Lamar’s basketball schedule is a priority.”
The 14-year veteran is said to be wanting to focus on his basketball career after an embarrassing 2012 season, which many blame on distractions from the reality show and his wife’s family. Odom is ineligible to play for another team this season after being released by the Dallas Mavericks but can sign elsewhere this offseason. Averaging just 6-points a game, it is a far cry from when Odom was the 2011 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
E! is hoping to convince Kardashian and Odom to reconsider. Just last week, it was announced that the Kardashian family signed the biggest deal in reality television history, worth a reported $40 million for three years. Despite the contract, Kardashian and Odom will only make occasional appearances on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Though it is reported, Odom has hired a team of personal trainers to get him back into shape, he was photographed yesterday teaching sister-in-law Kim how to play basketball for scenes for the news season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
