In a new interview in Cosmopolitan magazine, Khloe expresses no regrets about the past two, tumultuous years.
“People hate us for showing stuff and they hate us when we say, ‘Fine, we won’t show it anymore.’ I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t change a thing. You learn as you go,” she says.
“Your life is meant for you to understand and process, not to make anyone else happy,” she adds.
Except, that’s exactly what she did with her marriage, creating the perception of marital bliss that few couples could ever hope to live up to in the “real” real world.
Indeed, for most of those years Khloe’s happy marriage was a major story line in “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and tabloid interviews.
Nothing was aired on their reality show, or reported in the gossip rags, about Lamar’s drug problems or serial infidelity.
Khloe once even bragged that her birthday gift to Lamar was “good pussy!”
On the rare occasions when gossip rags stumbled onto the truth about her crumbling marriage, the family unleashed a fusillade of heated denials.
“Married life is incredible and I’ve never been so happy. I feel so blessed to have Lamar and I can’t wait to spend my life with him!” she gushed in one stinging rebuttal, calling a tabloid story about her marriage “hilarious.”
She stuck with the public relations fantasy until the truth could no longer be ignored. Paparazzi caught Lamar holed up in a hotel room on a three-day crack cocaine bender with another woman.
It would to fans of the show.
The biting irony of the whole sordid affair is the wide disparity between Khloe’s real life and her reality television life. Aren’t they supposed to be the same?
E! Entertainment, which airs “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” and various spin-offs, bills the show as a “chronicle” of the family as they “meet life’s challenges and triumphs head on.”
But if there are any doubts about the “reality” of their reality show, Khloe’s failed marriage should finally erase them. The show is as carefully scripted as “I Love Lucy,” or “Modern Family.”
The only difference is bad acting.
