For the third consecutive week TMZ has nothing to do but report on Lamar Odom constantly. In the past 24 hours alone they have made him the top item on their site for hours at a time. Forget about going to TMZ Sports because it might as well be called LMZ. The thing is they don't even try very hard. In that regard they are just like their sister publication People aka Kneepads. That magazine loves to print publicist statements like they were gold. I swear if Kneepads could get an interview with Angelina Jolie they would also announce the world is flat if Angelina wanted it.
Yesterday TMZ reported that Lamar loves the Kardashian family because of that long tweet supporting them. I called into question whether it was him and TMZ agreed because they had no reason not to. TMZ used both opportunities and will use any opportunity to remind you he is using drugs and that the Kardashian family should be given sainthood. Earlier in the day they acted as if Lamar was going to be arrested at any second. They of course used that opportunity to tell you he is doing drugs again and that Kris Jenner did everything she could to get him Robert Shapiro as a lawyer and that Shapiro would only represent Lamar if he went to rehab. They then got down on their knees for Shapiro. If I get arrested and have money I'm calling Shawn Holley, not some guy who had his prime two decades ago and now is more worried about his pseudo lawyer service.
Do you know how many people more famous than Lamar use drugs everyday in Hollywood? Who do terrible things to their body and to others? Who hole up in hotel rooms with hookers and cheat on their wives? Tons. Way more interesting stories too. So you have to ask yourself why they care about some guy who was on some reality show for a couple of seasons and played some basketball. Kris Jenner. She sat next to Harvey Levin every day during the OJ trial and they became best buddies. I'm pretty sure she knows all his secrets too so when she needs a favor Harvey gets on his old school kneepads and looks up at her with his plastic cup and straw and white teeth through his permanent spray on tan and just tells her to let him know when he can stop.
