Lamar Odom almost bailed on his E! reality show with wife Khloe Kardashian, he tells the LA Times.
- "By the third or fourth day, I realized how tough and demanding it was going to be. I was like, 'I don't think I could do this.'"
Odom was worried about the stress that filming the show would have on his basketball career with the LA Lakers.
- "But we worked through it. What I do is, like, usually on a game day, I won't film, because I have to have my mind in a certain place and I have to rest my body. The Lakers, of course, had their concerns when I went into this, but I made the promise to them that I would remain the same player, if not try to get better.""
Wife Khloe says Odom didn't grasp the 24/7 reality life, even though she warned him about it. "I think he thought we could send the cameras away whenever you want, but you can't," she said.
Khloe has her own worries about the show's affects. See what her fear is after the jump.
"If he has a bad game, I know in the back of their heads, the NBA wants to blame this show," Khloe said. She admits that she worries about getting backlash, similar to when Jessica Simpson was criticized by Cowboys fans while dating Tony Romo.
