NEW YORK — Kim may be the Kardashian family member considered to have the most drama in her life, but sister Khloe has had her fair share lately.
Her husband, Lamar Odom, was abruptly traded last December by the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks.
The transition is one of the events documented in the second season of the E! Entertainment Television series “Khloe and Lamar,” which premieres Sunday.
The 27-year-old Kardashian Odom talked about their move to Dallas and the couple’s “active” sex life in a recent interview.
AP: The new season of “Khloe and Lamar” will show Lamar being traded to the Mavericks. People might not realize there’s no notice with something like that.
Kardashian Odom: You get to see kind of an inside view of how fast it happens. I stayed behind so I could pack and figure out what to do. … Moving in general is stressful, so moving to a state that I’ve never been is stressful. Then when your husband’s having a very emotional transition, that’s like adding one more layer to this. Then I’m having the camera crew film and for them, they love it. They’re like, `This is gold!’ I’m like, `Can’t you just leave us alone for one week?’ But, you know, that’s what you know we signed up for.
AP: You’re often spotted at your husband’s games and often with a camera.
Kardashian Odom: I’m like a soccer mom.
AP: Yes! Are you proud of him?
Kardashian Odom: I’m proud of him. I’ve had a very supportive family. Lamar has no siblings, and so I want him to know that someone is always at his games supporting him. I wasn’t able to be at one home game and so my brother went for me. I always want Lamar to know someone is at his games supporting him.
AP: Are you trying to get pregnant?
Kardashian Odom: I was writing down my ovulation days, but it took the fun out of trying to get pregnant in my opinion and for Lamar, too. We were both like, `OK, this is like, I don’t want to be told, when (to have sex)’ … like it’s too much and it’s too strategic. It’s supposed to be romantic, so I now stopped all of that. … We’re enjoying each other, we have a very active love life.
AP: Does the attention about it bother you?
Kardashian Odom: I think we got married so fast, I think people expected us to have a baby. Now people want to spin it to make it seem like it’s something bigger, like I’m doing all of these fertility treatments or I can’t carry a baby or whatever the case may be. It doesn’t offend me and it doesn’t bother me. … When it’s meant to be, it will be.
AP: On the last season of your sisters’ reality show, “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” one thing that seemed to happen is (Kourtney’s boyfriend) Scott (Disick) redeemed himself and people started to like him. Have you noticed that? (In previous reality shows about the Kardashian family, Disick was depicted as having anger issues and possibly drinking too much.)
Kardashian Odom: I’ve definitely noticed a change and he’s trying. He’s a great dad. … Also, when you re-watch your episodes of the TV shows, for me like even if I talk to my mom a certain way I’m like, `Oh that’s so nasty,’ and I try to work on it. Maybe he does the same thing. I’ve definitely noticed a growth in him. And there was so much other drama going on (with sister Kim’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries), I think it made him look better, too.
