Lamar Odom

Kris Jenner Is NOT

My Momager-in-Law

6/1/2012 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

60112_lamar_odom_launch_v2Lamar Odom the basketball player and Lamar Odom the reality star are two completely separate people and he likes to keep it that way ... but maybe he should think about merging the two. 

Our photog spotted the former Los Angeles Laker out in L.A. yesterday and asked him if Kris Jenner (mega-manager that she is) is handling his basketball career. Lamar explained, "Those are two separate entities -- the basketball player and the guy that's on reality TV ... She handles the reality star."

An interesting statement from L.O. because when he and Khloe pulled the plug on their reality show ... he claimed he was going to focus on his basketball career. Not a good move on Lamar's part to say he's still in the reality TV world ... if he's serious about having a team take him seriously.

Then again, considering the Kardashians are printing money ... and Lamar's NBA career is well, y'know -- perhaps it IS time to let Kris take over.

When I heard that Khloe and Lamar were putting their show on hold to focus on his basketball career and their marriage, I thought, thank goodness someone in this family FINALLY has some sense! However, it has since occurred to me that Kris is probably behind all of it and it was just ANOTHER publicity stunt. UGH! Enough please!

Glad I live in the USA where freedom of speech exists. The Daily Mail out of the UK runs 5-10 articles PER DAY on the Kardashians/Jenners. While they say comments aren't moderated, they are. It's almost like Kris Jenner is reviewing the comments. Even though TMZ runs a lot of K stuff be glad you're given the right to speaK your mind unlike the DM in the UK.

He is a idiot he ruined his basketball career just to be on a reality show which will not last for long. His career is over now for good he got too involved with that families drama and stupid reality shows and now he's seen as a joke. Notice that when Kim was dating Reggie he was only seen a few times on the show and never got involved with being filmed. No coach will want to hire him with that baggage. Trust me Khloe will be filing for divorce very soon these witches only care about money and fame and use men to get that. Lamar is not bringing home any bacon and she will soon look for another basketball player to suck out dry just like the other whore Kim. Some men are so stupid.

I mean seriously is no one else sick of seeing these fame whores on tv? I mean I get the dad (r.i.p) was a big deal with the whole OJ trial but after that the only reason any of the got famous was because one of them screwed the right person. Their mother is SO annoying I mean come on enough is enough already

I mean I get it their dad (r.i.p) was a big deal with the OJ trial but after that the ONLY reason any of the got famous (excluding Bruce Jenner) was because one of them screwed the right dude. I mean REALLY enough is enough already

According to the "STAR", Kris Jenner has denounced SCOTT DESICK'S family as "classless and an embarrassment!" Scott's father was found to have a criminal past. This is SO hilarious, as Kim was arrested for stealing Ray J's mother's charge card and running up the bill (Ray J got her off the hook) or she'd have a felony record. She also made and promoted a pornography video and posed naked for millions of leering men. And Jenner has the nerve to call SCOTT'S family classless!!!! What a joke---ha. ha, ha! Too funny!

He probably would not have been sent walking and wouldn't have done Dallas either if Mama Kris and her charms had taken control.
