Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this Kardashian reality spinoff contains lots of voyeuristic moments that center on married life. It also deals with some serious issues, including the death of a parent, addiction, and divorce. Expect plenty of salty language (“s--t;” “f--k” are bleeped) and strong sexual references.

What's the story?

KHLOE AND LAMAR, yet another installment of the Kardashian reality franchise, follows Khloe Kardashian and her husband, L.A. Laker player Lamar Odom as they learn to live as a married couple. The pair, who married after only a two-month courtship (in front of the reality cameras) has settled into their Los Angeles home along with Khloe’s brother Robert. Also hanging out with them is Lamar’s best friend and business partner Jamie Sangouthai and Khloe’s friend and assistant, Malika Haqq. Facing the challenges brought on by their careers, their families, and their friends isn’t always easy, but they are learning to figure it out together.

Is it any good?


The show offers a voyeuristic look at Khloe’s adjustment to marriage and Lamar’s attempts to cope with these adjustments. Unlike its sister series, it occasionally moves away from the shallow materialism of the Kardashian world and explores some of the difficult challenges Odom has faced throughout his life.

Despite these brief serious moments, Kardashian fans will find the same kind of family drama and silly behaviors the franchise is known for. But reality show antics aside, there is an attempt to send a positive message about marriage, and underscores how much this couple cares about each other. 

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about reality shows. The Kardashians have built a reality franchise by living some parts of their lives in front of the camera. Do you think they do this for the money? For the fame? Do you think they ever go too far? 

  • How have the Kardashians changed over the years? Do you think they are becoming positive role models as their lives change? Why or why not?

Love the Kardashians, espically Khole!

I didn't think I would watch this show at first but, now I just can't get enough. I love the Kardashian sisters (espically Khole!) and if you did enjoy their other shows then you will love this one. Something I don't understand is why CSM didn't call Khole and Lamar good role models. First off, Khole is a good friend and even though she does have her diva moments she trys her best to help her friends along. And secondly, Lamar is forgving and generous. And lastly, Khole and Lamar love each other and even though they have fights (like all married couples) they do show how much they care and love each other. So overall, great show and its for sure worth watching!
