Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9 Episode 7 Recap: Khloe's Courage to Drop Lamar

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9 Episode 7, the reality show's midseason finale, finally showed us the beginning of the end for Khloe and Lamar.

She wasn't the only one mulling a gigantic life change, however, as siblings Rob and Kourtney Kardashian also took big steps towards improving their futures.

It was Khloe and Lamar at the center of the drama, though, and you knew that was coming months before you could watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians online.

We are all aware how things unraveled between the two of them - drugs, arrests, other women, crack videos - but this provided a behind the scenes look.

In the end it took sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, along with Khloe's best friend Malika Haqq, holding an informal intervention of sorts to make her listen.

Despite her hard work, the marriage is over. It's not her fault that the situation is what it is, but at some point she has to look out for herself and protect her soul.

No wonder this emotional episode was titled "The Courage to Change."

She finally is convinced to file for divorce after the final straw - that messed up Lamar Odom crack video about her that made its way onto the internet.

The heavyset Rob Kardashian decided to go have his blood work done to see if he has any thyroid issues, and in turn receives some crazy results:

If he doesn't make major lifestyle changes, he'll become diabetic and his organs will shut down. That's a sign you're likely eating a bit too much, man.

He knows it too, and begins the process of getting some of his tattoos and stretch marks removed, while hiring a personal trainer as well as a nutritionist.

Again, he displayed some courage of his own after hitting bottom.

Meanwhile, Kourtney decides to take Scott away for a weekend in Arizona at a life transition spa (yes, these things really exist) to relax and open up.

The surprising thing is that while Scott takes to the meetings and activities and actually does open up emotionally, Kourtney doesn't really hold up her end.

Despite all he's going through with his parents, Scott is the one asking Kourtney to express her feelings and open up more, which she agrees to work on.
