Looks like Lamar Odom is back on the reality show bandwagon. Hot on the heels of news that the former NBA star was returning to rehab, reports have surfaced that he will also be filming his recovery for his own show.
According to People, Odom has a deal to star in a new reality series — which has not yet filmed — set to air sometime in 2017. “The show will be about his life, recovery — all about him,” the source told the magazine about the new series.
On Tuesday, HipHollywood reported that Odom checked himself into a rehab facility in San Diego, Calif. The 37-year-old did so voluntarily, and plans to stay for 30 days. According to reports, Odom was clean when he checked in nearly a week ago, but did so as a precautionary measure with his divorce to Khloe Kardashian being finalized and the holidays coming up.
Odom and Kardashian, 32, tied the knot on national TV in September 2009, but their marriage fell apart after his cheating scandal and drug relapse. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star first filed for divorce in 2013 and the couple finally both signed divorce papers in July 2015, but a few months later, Kardashian called off their divorce following her husband’s near-fatal overdose at a Nevada brothel in October 2015.
In recent months, Odom has been in good spirits, hanging out with his children and spending time in his hometown of New York. Another insider told People, “He’s actually writing while he’s away, he’s doing a lot of writing in there. There’s a book offer on the table, but part of the deal was that he’s going to get in good shape. Everyone’s been so supportive.”
