Kardashians talk Lamar Odom overdose during KUWTK special


During the 10-year KUWTK special, Lamar Odom is the topic of conversation at least once. 

It has been nearly two years since Lamar Odom almost suffered a fatal overdose. This was an important part of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, especially because Odom was family to everyone. His relationship and subsequent marriage to Khloe Kardashian was all the rage back in the day. Despite the hardships they endured, fans rooted for the couple from day one.

The Kardashian family was heavily criticized for choosing to film during the ordeal. Was it questionable? Absolutely, but it was also real life.

Their lives have been documented for 10 years and had they chosen to not film, an important moment would have slipped away. It wasn’t about the ratings for them, it was about showing the world that moment in time through their eyes.

Khloe Kardashian has been the sister who gets dumped with all of the grief. She is the sister who took care of Rob Kardashian when he needed someone. She has been the one to take care of her estranged husband when he overdosed in a Las Vegas brothel. They are officially divorced now and have been for some time, but that doesn’t make reliving those moments any less painful.

In a sneak peek for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians special, Kendall Jenner is shown bringing up the event that happened with Lamar Odom. It was quite apparent that the subject still bothers the family, especially Khloe.

The sisters explained they were given misinformation about Odom initially. They were told he was dead.

Next: Is Kylie Jenner really pregnant?

Khloe recounted going through the emotions of thinking he had died. This portion of the special is going to be gut-wrenching for all to watch, including the fans who hoped that Khloe and Lamar would remain together forever.
