*Mary J. Blige recently sat down for an interview about “Black Nativity” and her new Christmas Album.
But, during the interview, she offered advice to couples like Khloe & Lamar that are battling addiction. Because Mary comes from a relationship (her and K-Ci) that involved drugs, she believes that you should not stay.
“I can’t comment on anybody else’s life. But, I’m going to say this. Two hurt people can not help each other. They can not. So, if you’re an addict and he’s an addict, who’s gonna help? So, somebody’s got to step in. I don’t know? If you can’t help me, I’m the type of person I’m bailing. I’m bailing, God Bless you, somebody else gotta help you. For real, two people hurt can’t help each other.”
Do you have any insecurities and if so, how did you overcome and learn to love yourself?
“I had to learn how to trust my gut. Trust what I know to be right … not right, but not waiver on who I am. Know who I am, know what I want, and know it. Not waiver on it and be secure in that. And I still struggle with it. But I really…I can’t be moved. You can’t move me and that all comes with loving myself and I’m like my best buddy. I like hanging out with me and I’ve accepted everything about me good, bad whatever it is. That’s why I’m able to, that’s why no one can tell me anything negative about myself. Now there’s room for fixing myself if need be. Cause I’m not perfect and everything is great, but because I know myself and I know the good about myself and I know the bad about myself, I know what I need to check. You know so, that’s it. So, it’s really about this self love thing and I keep getting tested. “
*Lamar Odom will not be prosecuted for his run-in with a photographer last month, after reportedly agreeing to pay for the pap’s busted equipment.
Khloé Kardashian’s husband argued with the snapper in Hollywood last month. He was accused of breaking the man’s equipment and the case was referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney for possible misdemeanor vandalism charges. (Police originally sent the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for possible felony charges, before it was transferred to the City Attorney.)
TMZ reports that Lamar has escaped any further legal trouble after reaching an agreement: The athlete will be required to meet with the photographer and a City Attorney hearing officer to discuss the incident and their “rights and responsibilities.”
The July 10 altercation was caught on video and kicked off when a photographer reportedly asked Lamar to respond to allegations he had been unfaithful to Khloé.
“I would never cheat on my wife, that’s why I wear my wedding ring,” he was heard telling the paparazzo, before asking the man’s name and adding: “I’m gonna step out the car and I’m gonna talk to you.”
There was then a break in the recording and Lamar was next seen holding the photographer’s belongings. When the man asked Lamar to return his things, the basketball star told him to “shut up” before handing them back.
Lamar has been accused of having affairs on more than one occasion.
Reality TV star Khloé has continued to show her support for her spouse, and when the incident with the paparazzo took place last month she hit out at him for allegedly trespassing.
“wow can’t believe a paparazzi snuck into our gated area and violated our private property!!!!” she tweeted. “This becomes stalking at some point!!!!! Its wild!!!! (sic).”
Again, word has it that the NBA player has had enough of the reality show cameras in their home, and this time – sources tell HollywoodLife – Odom has put his foot down.
The sources claim he gave Kardashian an ultimatum, telling her that either the cameras go or he does. Sources also told the site that Odom was so fed up with the cameras constantly following him that he packed his bags and went to Las Vegas for a week.
However, the GossipCop.com, which touts itself as a rumor-busting website, says none of these reports are true. They report that the couple is currently living in Los Angeles, where Odom is training with the Clippers. Filming on the current “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” season wrapped weeks ago, filming on the next season of “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” begins later this month, and cameras haven’t rolled for the in-limbo show “Khloe & Lamar” in months. And therefore, notes GossipCop, rumors that Odom left because of cameras are ridiculous.
The website also points out that the couple appears to be happy — with Khloe tweeting a photo of Odom in bed, with the caption “My sleeping prince.”
*For all the folks who just can’t get enough of the Kardashians, tonight’s the night.
Yep, E! has prepared Kardashian franchise, “Khloe & Lamar,” to fill in the Sunday night slot.
There’s a bit of a buzz about the show and especially it’s opening credits.
“I seriously got chills when I first saw the opening credits for ‘Khloe & Lamar’,” Khloe Kardashian wrote on her blog last week. “I can’t believe it’s actually happening!!!! I’m beyond excited. I just want Sunday to be here already!!!! …OMG OMG OMG!!!!! Can somebody pinch me please?! LOL.”
“Khloe & Lamar”, which is the third spin-off of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, will follow Khloe’s adventure as a newly wed with husband Lamar Odom. She would juggle career and position as stepmother to Lamar’s children and live in the same house as her brother Rob Kardashian.
Check out the trailer for the show and, on a side note, be watching out for Lamar’s rather curious looking father.
