Khloe Kardashian is experiencing a very difficult time in her marriage to Lamar Odom. Amid multiple cheating and drug use scandals, on the part of the Lamar, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star is still standing by her husband. But according to Hollywood Life on Oct. 8, “Today” show regular Dr. Gilda Carle says Khloe is acting out of a fear of failure.
“Khloe is remaining with Lamar because she doesn’t want to admit she’s failed in her marriage,” the renowned therapist told the website. ”Apparently, she doesn’t want to face the truth — that there’s a very high rate of recidivism among addicts, and Lamar will need years of therapy until he begins, if he begins, to get well. She’s living in a happily-ever-after fantasy that is just not supporting her dreams.”
Khloe has talked publicly about wanting to help Lamar but Dr. Gilda says the 29-year-old must get help for herself first.
“Khloe also has said she wants to ‘save’ him, but no one can save anyone,” she said. “We can only save ourselves. She can help him more by letting him know she still loves him, but that she loves herself more and she must take care of herself. I recommend she seek counseling alone, and discover why she’s having trouble letting go, why she’s refusing to take the next steps necessary, and why she has the fantasy of him coming back whole.”
