Speaking with Playboy magazine extensively, Lamar Odom gets quite candid about his relationship with wife Khloé Kardashian and her infamous family.
In the interview, Lamar says about his bride: “I was kind of surprised at how intelligent she was. You don’t know what to expect. Next thing I know I’m spending every day with her. We just hit it off.”
So much so they got married 30 seconds later. Anyway, here are a few tidbits from the interview – including Lamar’s thoughts on the possibility of a sex tape leak, how being married to the youngest Kardashian sister has changed him, and how he gets along with the rest of the family.
On what would happen if a sex tape of Odom and Khloé leaked: “When people see us in person, they see Khloé’s not small. I’m not small. People see us and are probably like, Damn, I wonder how that looks. We wouldn’t have anything to be ashamed about, but no, that’s not going down.”
On how marrying Khloé has changed him: “Men, most of the time our goal is to have what we want when it comes to women…Most men like more than one woman. A lot of them would not want to admit that because that might not be cool, right? Most people don’t want to get married. Being married, that’s a responsibility. I always used to tell that to women. I don’t want a girlfriend because that means I’ve got a responsibility. I have a responsibility to call you. I have a responsibility not to be with another woman. I have a responsibility to be there on time when you need me. With her I was like, If I do what I normally do, I’m going to lose her. And if I lose her, I think it’s going to hurt a lot. Right then and there I knew. We were together every day.”
On whether it was true that he withheld sex until they were married: “I tried to. I didn’t know why I wanted to wait. We came together and knew what we wanted from each other really early, and everything we did felt good, from a hug to a kiss. Then there was a time when I just tried to be a gentleman about the whole situation. I was accepted by her family. She stayed at my place and vice versa. I thought, We’re going to step back for a second. Keep it classy.”
On adjusting to the dynamics of the Kardashian family: “People have the wrong idea. They’re a really strong family and fun to be around…I’m perfect for that. I come from a big family. I’ve always been on a team. I understand. The circus is what makes it tick and keeps it going.”
I’d rather watch a video of Raz-B reading from the dictionary than watch a sex tape with those two. That’s not a knock to their aesthetic value. It’s just that giant sex should be sacred.
