Confirmed: Lamar and Khloe Kardashian Spin-Off Reality Show

As we reported days ago...this happened.

According to RyanSeacrest.com:

Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian will shoot their own reality series for Ryan Seacrest Productions.
"Khloé and Lamar," will begin shooting in early 2011.
Odom had mentioned recently that the spin-off was a possibility.

And even though they will be shooting right in the middle of the season, Coach Jackson doesn't think it will be a distraction to Odom.

"Lamar usually doesn't get distracted by things that are outside (basketball)," Jackson said, before his Lakers faced the Suns on Wednesday. "I know the Kardashians will be very careful with what they do."

Odom spoke extensively on the subject before the game as well, and said that he'd had a discussion about the endeavor with Jackson and Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak. But ultimately, the decision was his.

"That's between us," Odom said, when asked for the details of what the team and he discussed. "I respect their opinions and what they have to say and how they feel; I should. But at the end of the day, we always talk about how this is life and we have decisions to make. The Lakers make decisions that they need to make, and Lamar does the same, and (everyone here) does. This is the life that we live, this is entertainment. Whether it's sports, reporting ... we're all in the industry, somehow some way."

Jackson seemed to agree and mentioned that in terms of players marketing themselves, the team really doesn't have much to say about it.

"Outside of those hours that we have (together), the time's theirs," Jackson said. "Our restrictions don't include whether they have another workout or activity, whether they have a trainer off-site -- these are things we're still dealing with in the NBA, what physical outside distractions they might have. But their career and possible extraneous things that could happen, then you'd say they can't do ads, they can't do commercials -- so where's it end?"
