Lamar Odom has succeeded where so many before him have failed: at standing up to Kris Jenner.
The Kardashian matriarch had reportedly been pressuring her son-in-law to give up professional basketball and dedicate himself fully to the life of a talentless, shameless hack reality TV star.
But TMZ now confirms Odom has gone in the opposite direction and will be concluding his series with wife Khloe Kardashian after this season in order to focus on his faltering NBA career.
The heretofore solid sixth man was placed on the inactive list by the Dallas Mavericks a few weeks ago after failing to connect with teammates, showing general laziness and falling to career lows in points and rebounds.
He's now intent, though, on reviving his career, with insiders saying he'll reside full-time in Los Angeles and work out with personal trainers.
The most recent episode of Khloe & Lamar earned -65 points from our critic, as it focused on Khloe's family visiting the struggling couple in Dallas.
