There was no truth to the rumors that the Kardashian family brought a camera crew to Lamar Odom's hospital room following his near-fatal overdose, but that doesn't mean Momager Kris doesn't already have big plans for her son-in-law's return to the spotlight.
According to Radar Online, Kris Jenner is already planning Lamar's first post-overdose interview. Sources say she's also working out deals for Lamar's return to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and even an E! network special focusing on his recovery.
“All of a sudden, Lamar’s become useful to her again,” says one insider.
And while the reports about camera crews filming a comatose Lamar just hours after his hospitalization turned out to be bogus, the source claims the Kard clan has definitely been compiling footage for eventual use on Lamar's TV special.
“Anyone saying they’ve not been filming throughout this doesn’t know what they’re talking about,” says the insider.
It wouldn't be the first time that Kris has used her family's misfortune to drum up ratings, but the source says her excitement over cashing in on a man who's still barely able to communicate is particularly unseemly.
“Kris is licking her lips at all the money she’ll make on the back of Lamar’s OD,” the source explains. “She puts on a good show of maternal concern, but there’s always an agenda with Kris and Lamar’s troubles are no exception.”
