Lamar Odom

STANDING OVATION

at Lakers Homecoming

Lamar Odom
returned to the Staples Center last night to play the Lakers ... for the first time since he was traded away to the Dallas Mavericks ... and was welcomed by the L.A. fans with a standing ovation.

With his Kardashian wife in the stands ... the crowd erupted when Lamar came out on the court ... even Jack Nicholson got out of his seat to show his respect for the former Lakers star.

Odom dropped 10 points ... but it wasn't enough to propel the Mavs to victory ... 'cause the Lake Show took the victory 73 to 70.

Funny thing is ... Odom was traded away so quickly last month, the Lakers haven't had time to remove his image from the tickets.

After the game, Odom told reporters it felt "surreal" to get ready in the visitors locker room ... but explained, "It gave me energy."

That fat disgusting pig of a wife, Khloe Kardashian, showed up.

I was wondering why Staples Center smelled so bad.

It's SO obvious that TMZ gets paid to support the Trash-canians....here you have a story about Lamar Odom's returning to LA to play the Lakers.....it makes sense that Khloe would be pictured (supporting her husband) - YET who else has a picture here? Pimp-Mom and Fake Face.

Before they take it down, go see Bruce's cut up face on hollywoodlife. The cut is all jagged and stitched up on his right cheek. Kris is hiding it in this photo. Wow.

And then he was met with Boos when the crowd remembered he was married to a Kartrashian.

Lamar isn't even a starter, why would we care about him going back to LA? Oh that's right, TMZ is based out of Cali, all the people that work there know nothing about sports (which they prove over and over again) yet try to act like they care about the Lakers and its somewhat Kardashian related so of course Harvey Seacreast will plaster it out there as if anyone cares.

Why must you cover this 3rd rate bbal player and the gypsy family he married into?

They all give me the dry heaves. Kim's a ho with a grotesquely fat rear end and wears more makeup than a clown. Khloe is an ugly man and the third one looks like a raisin face.

Stop reporting on these useless gypsy grifters and report on real celebrities, you know, who have some talent or relevance.

Love Lamar. Khole's a hoot.
Let's get to the Kim/Kourtney getaway to Mystic. I was reminded just how LARGE Kim is. The tent she was wearing left her jiggling (with no one there to photo-shop her proportions). The woman is GINORMOUS and she is not in good shape. She can afford a stylist so, why doesn't she?

Did Khloe forgive Odom for his escapade with the strippers and the hot lap dances he enjoyed?? He alledgedy (Radaronline)disappeared into a private room with one of the dancers? Oh,well,boys will be boys,right??? Washington D.C, Jan.8th,at exclusive mens' club.

My only takeaway from this is that Bruce Jenner looks like a freak.
