It’s Fun Friday


Please don’t let the picture below make you want to click off this blog post.  I’m going to share just a few reasons why I like-no, why I love-this Kardashian-Odom woman!

Khloe Kardashian-Odom

I am by no means obsessed with reality-TV, but one day when I was sick, I got hooked on the Kardashian family.  Kim was my favorite, followed by Kourtney, and then Khloe.  That changed when I learned more about their highly dramatic family.  I won’t go into that, but rather I’d rather talk about why I admire and respect the youngest Kardashian, now turned Kardashian-Odom.  Of all the people in the “K” family, some even turned “Jenner,” she’s the one who isn’t in it for the drama, nor her looks.

Khloe: I love her!  I love for the woman she’s become.  She’s overcome hard times, (her father died of cancer, she went to jail for a DUI, she’s gained a lot and lost a lot of weight, and since she’s a celebrity, she’s criticized for each and every move she makes).  I’d like to think that she and I are a lot a like, and here’s why.  We both love our families, are outspoken women, love our husbands to pieces, and think that “friendship” is the root of a marriage.

The Khloe Kardashian-Odom/Jenner Family

Khloe on Family: Khloe has more love and respect for her family than any other celebrity that I know.  Her mom, Kris Jenner, can criticize her for her weight and call her “fat,” but Khloe says it’s all out of love.  Since Kris is her manager (and manager of her other daughters, and son Robert), Khloe respects mother’s judgment and harsh words.  While Khloe might seem “blunt,” and “direct,” as some people call her, she’s the only one who told Kim that her marriage to Kris Humphries would be a bad idea…and she was right.  (HERE is my blog about Kim’s marriage).

Mr. & Mrs. Lamar Odom

Khloe on Marriage: Khloe’s marriage to basketball player, Lamar Odom, came as a surprise.  The had known each other for nine, yes nine, days before they became engaged in 2009, and they are still going strong.  On some blogs and websites, it’s been said that they are one of the strongest celebrity couples.  I agree.  When Lamar got traded to the Dallas Mavericks, I thought it was cool that she made the move with him.  She even Tweeted, “I ride or die for my Lam! It’s where I go… It’s who I am with :),” and then, “I can survive anywhere…As long as I’m with Lam I’m good”  I love her ways of thinking about marriage.  If you watch her spinoff show, Khloe and Lamar, you will see how much these two love one another.  Just because they got married very soon after meeting one another, that doesn’t mean anything.  Oh, and they also made an Unbreakable scent together, (I have it, and LOVE it!)  One more thing, Khloe makes it a big deal about how much Lamar dotes on her, and makes her feel beautiful – no matter that, and that’s one think I love about them-that they show how much they love each other.  Khloe and Lamar, I wish you a very happy life together.

(Her) Weight: Khloe has always been judged about how she looks, but mostly about her weight.  Just recently, she’s been on several talk shows where every interviewer has asked about her weight.  I think it’s inspiring that she finds “curves sexy,” and that she’s comfortable in her own skin.  That’s hot!  I found THIS to be an amazing view of how she thinks about her weight, and about weight in general.

Anyway, when I woke up on Monday and found out that she’d be moving back to L.A. because Lamar and the Dallas Mavs have parted ways, I was sad.  She and Lamar had once lived at the hotel where I got married, The Rosewood Crescent Hotel, and she’d filmed her spinoff show in part of Dallas where I live.

In closing, Khloe has taught me that not every celebrity is alike, and that she’s her own person, no matter what!  I’ll always cheer for her and Lamar, as I wish them love and luck wherever they are!
