The most recent episode of "Khloe & Lamar" dealt with the clash of best friends over a work related matter and got to the bottom of a an unclear friends with benefits relationship.
No Work, No Pay
Lamar Odom's best friend, Jamie, has been repping his T-shirt line for some time now. We saw him and Khloe Kardashian argue about the way he does business earlier in the season. In this episode, the basketball star's best friend gets a little out of control! He parties hard in Vegas, misses a few important brand meetings, and is late for a meeting where the BIG boss just happens to be there.
If you ask me, this guy just seems plain irresponsible and unappreciative. His rich friend is employing him despite how many times he has screwed up. If that had been anyone else besides the ball player's best friend, then he would have been fired on the spot.
In order to teach a lesson, the firing is done. This leads to the friend disappearing and spiraling into a deep depression. He does not answer his phone calls forcing Lammy to make a house call. During the house visit, we discover that Jamie has gone through colon disease, an illness mostly older people get.
It was easy at first to blame the friend for not being responsible, but I do have a little sympathy when someone goes through a difficult transition period in their life. He seemed to have it pretty together before hand and needs a little help getting back on his feet. Good luck to him!
Friends or Lovers?
Rob Kardashian invites friend (with benefits) Malika on a trip. After a steamy night together, she thought that the trip meant more, but one night at the club, the young Kardashian runs into an old "friend." She is immediately on him like butter on bread in front of everyone! Uncomfortable, M packs it in for the night and gets her own room. She feels confused and a little disgusted that he would ditch her.
Fortunately, the dude figures out that he was disrespectful of the situation (even if the girl's older sister did have a point that they were not exclusive so they could do whatever they want). They go out to lunch together and get the whole situation resolved. If you ask me, I would not date him after the rainbow jean jacket disaster he wore to lunch (Just kidding...) The episode leaves us off wondering whether they will make it official or just be friends.
Next Sunday is the first season finale and is bound to be entertaining. Tune in at 10/9pm Central on E!
