Introducing the cast:
Khloé Kardashian Odom
The youngest of the Kardashian sisters was also the first to the altar when she married Laker star Lamar Odom on 2007. It was a whirlwind 30-day courtship followed by a splashy Hollywood wedding, and Khloé wouldn't have it any other way. The quick-witted, sharp-tongued third of the K-sis trio is never one to toe the line. A business powerhouse, Khloé's the co-spokesperson (along with Kim) for diet product Quick Trim, she's an avid and outspoken supporter of PETA and, of course, there's that little chain of hip clothing boutiques called DASH. Heard of it? Now, the challenge is balancing all those pressures with life as a wife—of a man she only knew a month before marrying and is still learning about daily! And did we mention they live with Khloé's brother, Rob? Talk about a crowded house!
Lamar isn't just a graduate of the School of Hard Knocks, he's valedictorian. Born and raised in the rough neighborhood of South Jamaica in Queens to single mother, he found himself alone at 12 when his mom Cathy died of cancer. Fortunately, his grandmother stepped in, and Lamar credits her with making him the man he is today. Seeing basketball as his ticket to a better life, he became a high school star with a college scholarship, only to see that slip away over an SAT scandal. Fate intervened with another college opportunity, and he was drafted to the Clippers a year later, at just 19. He was traded to the Miami Heat and went on to play for the 2004 US Olympic team and eventually ended up back in LA with the Lakers, where he counts three championships to his record. Busy Odom has his own record label, clothing line and charity called Cathy's Kids, which helps urban children further their educations. And a new marriage to that equally slacker wife, Khloé. These guys really need to get something going, don't they?
One of the famous Kardashian Kids, Rob is the only son of the late attorney Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. That fame has been a blessing and a challenge for Rob, who constantly struggles to prove himself to those around him. Having lost his dad at just 15, he has grown up surrounded by women, so he's built a remarkable bond with his new brother-in-law, Lamar. The two have a fun-loving relationship and are often found in the "man-cave" of Khloé and Lamar's house—where Rob also lives. Now, if he can just clean up his room—and launch a career!
Born and raised in California's San Fernando Valley, Malika has been one of Khloé's BFFs since they met as teenagers. One of five children with a single mom, Malika and her twin sister studied acting at an early age. When her sister eventually married and moved away, she struggled with forging her life as an individual, which is why her bond with Khloé is so strong. The two support each other in every way, Khloé even entrusting Malika with managing one of the DASH stores for a time. With an absentee father, Malika struggles with meaningful, lasting relationships with men (and what's up with her "thing" with Rob?), but Khloé's always there to support her—and vice versa!
