How Will Khloe Kardashian's Divorce Play Out on TV?

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has filed papers to officially split from Lamar Odom

Last month, Keeping Up with the Kardashians wrapped up a season heavily focused on Kim Kardashian's pregnancy. Younger sis Khloe Kardashian featured prominently all season, too -- but her story arcs didn't even hint at the big event going on in her life, which was the disintegration of her marriage to Lamar Odom. She did talk with family members about her struggles with infertility, but the reportedly philandering Odom wasn't present, and was rarely mentioned by name. We wondered whether Khloe would finally open up about Lamar's rumored cheating and drug use during the season finale, but no. 

But now, Khloe is finally filing for divorce. "The split should be pretty cut and dry," according to TMZ, which notes that there's "an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate... and no kids."

At this point, when Khloe resumes filming, there will be no hiding the fact that she's single again. "At first, she was adamant about not letting E! address the situation," a source told Us Weekly. "Then she realized it would ruin the series' integrity not to show what she was going through. But she won’t let them air anything that will hurt Lamar too much."

If that's true, then she'll hardly be inclined to bring any more attention to Odom's homemade rap video from last month, which TMZ called "the last straw" for Khloe. In the clip, an obviously inebriated Odom raps about doing drugs, making money and enjoying the company of other women. "And when Khloe's out of town I still be on the DL," he says at one point.

While TMZ reported that Khloe "went ballistic" when she learned about the video, it's highly unlikely that TV cameras caught her in that moment when she took off her ring forever. 

Fans may remember that after Kim's break-up with Kris Humphries, Khloe openly dissed him on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. "If you ever come across someone who barks for most of his words, don't date him," she told her big sister. 

Now that the tables are turned, will Kim have some choice words for Odom? Not if momager Kris Jenner doesn't want her to. Despite everything, she reportedly still considers Odom "family."
