How the Kardashians Exploited and Destroyed Lamar Odom for Reality Ratings

The Kardashians are arguably the worst thing to ever hit American culture — they’re a group of famewhores who are famous for things like intentionally leaking sex tapes and engineering divorces and drug abuse to exploit for their reality show. The latest person to surely be exploited for their pathetic show is Lamar Odom, who the Kardashians used and then destroyed… and now, he’s fighting for his life in the hospital.

Within hours of Odom’s hospitalization, Khloe, Kris and 7-months-pregnant Kim had hopped on a private plane. According to Radar Online, they had a camera crew in tow. (The 11th season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” filming now, premieres next month.) Caitlyn Jenner was en route.

By early Wednesday morning, media outlets such as TMZ, Radar, People, Us Weekly, E! (home of their reality show) and “Entertainment Tonight” suddenly had real-time updates and unobstructed views of matriarch Kris and her daughters outside the hospital, dressed in designer black dresses as if they were all widowed first ladies, straining to show distress on perfectly made-up, Botoxed faces.

The Kardashians let it be known that they “dropped everything” when they heard of Odom’s collapse, as if this were a heroic response rather than a merely decent one. In Khloe’s case, she’d been on a lingerie shoot. In little sister Kylie’s case, she’d been on a Web stream. “I love you guys,” she tweeted. The next day, Kylie donned a tight strapless two-piece and went to the mall. Paparazzi just happened to be there.

Model sister Kendall was flying in from Shanghai Fashion Week. “Please don’t go,” she tweeted. Kim publicly canceled the baby shower she’d planned for this weekend, letting the world know, by the way, that she would have had a “Troop Beverly Hills” theme.

“It’s a s- -t show,” an unnamed source said. “The Kardashians are trying to run everything. They walked into the hospital with cameras rolling. It was shocking, but hardly a surprise…They are all crying and pretending like they care.”

… Odom, 35, and Khloe, 31, filed for divorce in 2013, but he remained an ­unwilling, off-screen character on the show. He reportedly begged his ­estranged wife to stop airing his phone calls and to stop using him as a plot point, but she refused.

“She would tell him, ‘You owe me this after you humiliated me by cheating with other women,’” a source told Radar.

It was reported that Odom became extremely upset last Sunday night after an episode aired in which Khloe once again humiliated her husband. Odom’s best friend had died of drug-related causes, and he’d called Khloe for consolation. She then self-servingly told the cameras that “I’m really on high alert for Lamar because anything, I think, will cause him to spiral and that’s really the last thing I want for him.”

Later in that same episode, Khloe said “my heart dropped to my stomach” when she heard that Odom might have shown up at one of her paid nightclub appearances. Her sister Kim told cameras that the idea of Khloe still talking to Odom “makes me sick.”

… The source added Odom suspected Kris Jenner manipulated Khloe into leaving him for plot purposes. “Now he feels they’re using him to boost the show’s ratings,” the source said.

“Lamar had no idea he was going to be Khloe’s storyline during the past season,” another source told Radar. “She’s always talking about how much she loves the guy, but has no problem exploiting Lamar for her gain. How low can Khloe go? Lamar would call her about losing his best friend this past summer, and the first thing she thinks is to document it?”

The Kardashians, said the source, “have blood on their hands.”

… In the weeks leading up to Odom’s overdose, he’d once again felt publicly humiliated by the Kardashians. He’d approached Khloe outside a Beverly Hills SoulCycle at 6:45 in the morning — caught by paparazzi, of course. The Kardashian camp spun the ­incident as stalking.

Odom, however, insisted that Khloe had told him where she was going to be and set him up. He fought back through TMZ: “Y’all beat me down, degraded me, said I would do everything in the world. I’m a womanizer, a f–king drug addict, everything. I probably couldn’t even get f–king hired at Home Depot right now because of how people look at me. It’s over . . . if it happens again, I will air everything out.”

… Meanwhile, the leaks keep on coming, and they’re all about how Odom’s tragedy is affecting the Kardashians: Scott Disick checked into rehab this past week. People magazine was told exclusively that “it’s hard for Khloe. He is on his last leg.” And Kim had to fly back to LA because she has health issues, too, you guys.

“We’re told Kim has an appointment with a pregnancy specialist,” TMZ reported on Thursday. “Her placenta is growing too deep into her uterus.”

And so Lamar Odom’s fight for life competes with Kim Kardashian’s vagina for attention — which, in Kardashian world, is the way it should be.

It’s a sad indictment of us as Americans that these lowlifes, who are among the most despicable, shallow, empty-headed, vain, narcissistic, selfish, and evil people to ever walk the planet, are superstar celebrities right now. How low do they have to sink before the rest of us wake up and stop idolizing the worst family in America?
