Its all about the bottom line with Kris, and Khloe could care less about that. She is still holding out hope that her marriage to Lamar can be saved, revealed one insider. It seems that Khloe Kardashian is the most level headed of the entire Kardashian family. Khloe seems more worried about getting Lamar Odom help, and working on their marital problems than about her familys brand and money. However, Kris Jenner, the momager who is behind the total success of the Kardashian brand is reportedly all business and wants Khloe to divorce Lamar once and for all. Khloes entire self-worth and identity is wrapped up in her marriage and relationship to Lamar. Remember, four years ago, before Khloe married Lamar, she was just sort of fledgling. Kourtney was on her way to having her first baby, and Kim was dating Reggie Bush. Khloe was living with Kourtney in a townhouse, and her life was just lumped into her sisters, the source revealed. So when she met and married Lamar, it was a huge change for her. It was a chance for Khloe to distance herself from the Kardashian name. All of a sudden, Khloe was getting tons of attention from the media, and she was very popular with Lamars teammates wives. She had this huge mansion, a wardrobe to die for, and the man of her dreams.
