'Khloe and Lamar' Will Capture Couple's Move to Texas on Season 2
Leave it to a Kardashian to make life’s surprise twists into ratings gold.
The second season of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s spinoff series, Khloe and Lamar, will premiere at 10 p.m. on Feb. 19 and it will capture the couple’s impending move to Texas.
News of Lamar’s trade from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks broke over the weekend. It followed a dramatic series of events last week after the basketball player discovered he was one of two players in a possible deal for New Orleans guard Chris Paul, which the NBA ultimately blocked. On Friday, Lamar didn’t show up for the opening day of the Lakers’ training camp.
Khloe expressed some sadness and surprise about the news, but kept a postitive outlook on it publicly. So, viewers are probably wondering what the straighshooter actually said behind the scenes. I know I am.
According to E!’s announcement on Tuesday, the couple will deal with Lamar’s need to prove to his overprotective wife that he can handle himself. Plus, he’s dealing with the fear of keeping his bond with brother-in-law Rob Kardashian strong now that he’s moving out and improving his relationship with his estranged father.
Averaging two million viewers per episode in its first season, Season 2 of Khloe and Lamar will span 12 new episodes of the couple that married after only knowing each other for 30 days and made it work. We're looking at you, Kim.
The network also announced that reality series Ice Loves Coco starring rapper and actor, Ice T, and his model wife returns the same night at 10:30 p.m. for 10 new episodes. It averaged 1.7 million viewers per episode in its first season.
