If Sunday night's episode shed any light on what's happening between Khloé Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom, it's that Lamar is definitely not "Keeping Up" with Khloé -- and you can't help but feel bad for her.
The E! reality show hints that it will in fact make the couple's highly publicized marital problems a plotline in this second half of its eighth season, but just how much will it reveal? At the beginning of Sunday's show, Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick visit Khloé and Lamar's home, and Kourtney proceeds to search the house for Lamar even after Khloe tells them he is away at an NBA training camp. Weird? Definitely. Surprising? Not really.
Longtime Kardashian fans know that Khloé was anxious to get pregnant right after marrying Lamar in September 2009, and while she has been open about her struggle to have a baby, at this point she seems no longer interested. A very pregnant Kim (who's suddenly enjoying pregnancy, apparently) drags resistant Khloé to the fertility doctor she hasn't seen in a year, determined to get her younger sister back on the baby train. (Why is this family so pushy?)
While there, Khloé takes a mysterious phone call from Lamar, who says he needs to talk to her, and then apparently abruptly hangs up. The oddest part about this whole exchange is that it's impossible to hear Lamar's end of the call, and there's no closed captioning to see what he's saying, as you'd expect.
But it's not until the end of the episode that it becomes clear that things have really changed between Khloé and Lamar. While having lunch with youngest sister Kylie Jenner, Khloé takes multiple phone calls from Lamar, and while (again) it's unclear what he's saying, he seems to be accusing Khloé of not being where she says she is. When Kylie asks what's up, an exasperated Khloé tells her she "doesn't even know" what's going on in her life with Lamar.
In her one-on-one interviews interspersed throughout the episode, Khloé remains very vague about all of this, saying only that there are "personal" things that "no one knows and no one needs to know" except for her and Lamar, and that he has a lot of "emotional" issues.
What do you think? Will Khloé and Lamar's highly-publicized marriage problems play out in more detail on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians"? Should they talk about them on the show? And most importantly, do you think Khloé and Lamar are headed for divorce?
