After 10 seasons of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” TV personality Khloé Kardashian wants to temporarily quit the hit E! series reality show, Radar Online wrote in an exclusive report Tuesday. The youngest Kardashian sister has been with her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, since he had a near-death experience at a Nevada brothel last week and was rushed to the hospital. She hasn’t moved from his bedside, and she doesn’t plan to go back to work anytime soon.
Even though Khloé, 31, is back in Los Angeles after Odom, 35, was taken in a medical helicopter to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, she does not want to do the show. “She has no plans to resume filming ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ and will continue to be at the hospital every day with Lamar,” an insider told Radar Online.
Her momager, Kris Jenner, isn’t “happy” about the break, as Khloé’s a major part of “KUWTK.” “For now, she’s hoping Khloé will change her mind,” the source said. “Kris isn’t ready to play hardball with her daughter by reminding her that she is contractually obligated to do the show.”
Jenner, 59, isn’t the only family member who is worried about Khloé dropping everything to be with Odom. “This recovery could take months,” the insider added. “There are commitments that Khloé is obligated to do, and she just can’t not show up. It’s causing a lot of stress.”
One person who reportedly doesn’t mind Khloé taking time away is her boyfriend, Houston Rockets guard James Harden. "Lamar essentially has zero consistent family other than the Kardashians, and James understands that," a source told People magazine Monday. "The last thing he would want to do would be to add more stress to her plate."
Odom was found unconscious in the Love Ranch brothel outside of Las Vegas last Tuesday. He was rushed to the hospital in Pahrump and then taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas hours later. He remained in a coma until Friday. It will reportedly take months for Odom, who supposedly overdosed on cocaine, to recover.
