Lamar Odom’s overdose has become a central plot line on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and his own cousin is lashing out at Kris Jenner’s reality show for exploiting his “mistake.”
Despite being busted for lying about not filming during the time of his October overdose at a Las Vegas brothel, Jenner has introduced Odom’s serious situation into the ailing show, revealing how Khloe Kardshian was by his side during the trauma.
“They see an opportunity and they take it. Question is, what price?” Odom’s cousin Simone Greggs asked Life & Style Magazine.
She slammed Jenner for being insensitive to the severity of his problems.
“His situation being retold on TV is a reminder of the time in his life that should be forgotten,” Greggs said.
“He should not have to be constantly reminded of it. When you make a mistake, you want to move on.”
Greggs slammed the momager’s manipulations of her troubled cousin.
“You don't want to be reminded of it or held hostage. That hinders progress,” she said.
But a Kardashian source said that there was no way they weren’t going to exploit Odom’s overdose.
“The family puts everything on TV. If anything, they think these moments are the most important because it proves they’re a normal family with normal problems.”
Greggs couldn’t disagree more.
“It makes us so upset to see his situation being part of their show. But the Kardashians have a platform – and they go for it.”
