Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom quit their reality show
Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom have decided not to continue with their reality series, so that he can concentrate on his basketball career, it has been claimed.
According to TMZ.com, the married couple are pulling the plug on their show, which currently airs on E!, and will significantly limit their time on the main family programme Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
TMZ also reports that Lamar Odom is keen to revive his playing career, after he was put on the Dallas Mavericks “inactive list” following a less than successful season.
Lamar Odom, 32, released a statement earlier this month when the news was announced, which read: “The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team.
“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my team mates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Lamar Odom, who now lives in Los Angeles full-time with Khloe Kardashian, has hired a trainer in a bid to improve his skills on the court.
It is believed Lamar Odom is hoping to be traded from the Mavericks once the basketball season draws to a close.
Khloe & Lamar, which airs in America on Sunday nights, has proved a more than successful spin-off of the main Kardashian vehicle.
It followed in the footsteps of the family’s other spin-offs, including Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, as well as Kim’s Fairytale Wedding – which followed the most famous Kardashian as she prepared to wed her now estranged husband Kris Humphries.
It was reported earlier this month that the Kardashian family had signed a $40 million three-year contract with E!, with sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, as well as parents Kris and Bruce Jenner, all earning equal pay.
The seventh season begins airing in the States on May 20.
