Lamar Odom is leaving Los Angeles, after all. But instead of setting up a Mardi Gras, his travels will bring a new southern twang to the Kardashian series.
The longtime Lakers forward -- and husband of Khloe Kardashian -- is being traded to the Dallas Mavericks, according to ESPN, days after the trade that would have sent him to New Orleans fell through. Dallas, the defending NBA champions, will take on the star and his high salary in the wake of his clear displeasure with LA's aborted attempt to deal him for Chris Paul.
What this means for the Kardashian TV series remains to be seen, but it seems that Khloe will be following Odom to Dallas. When the trade on Thursday looked like it was still alive, Kardashian said she would follow Odom anywhere, and early Sunday, she tweeted, "I am sure I will love it but I am a tad thrown off."
Given that there is an entire spinoff called "Khloe and Lamar," it would figure that the happily married couple would have the E! network cameras following them to their new Texan home. It should be an interesting challenge; in this season of "Kourtney and Kim Take New York," much of the friction between Kim and her now-estranged husband Kris Humphries has to do with his desire to live and practice in his home of Minnesota, while she lives in New York.
