Lamar Odom is pulling out the big guns for his DUI case.
According to TMZ, the NBA star hired OJ Simpson’s lawyer Robert Shapiro to represent him after his recent, highly-publicized arrest for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Sources say Shapiro is best known for plea bargaining. “These cases are pretty standard — he’ll probably plead no contest to one count of DUI and get probation. He’ll also be required to attend an alcohol ed class,” TMZ reports. ” And, since he refused to submit to a blood-alcohol test, he’ll automatically get his driver’s license yanked for one year. No getting around that.”
We suspect this whole deal was set up with the help of Kardashian momager Kris Jenner. She’s close friends with Shapiro, who worked with her ex-husband Robert Kardashian during Simpson’s murder trial in 1994.
Despite all of the controversy, Lamar ‘s wife Khloé Kardashian is keeping her head held high. “As much as I wish I were made of steel… I’m not,” she tweeted. “I’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.”

7 Reasons Why Khloe Is My Favorite Kardashian
1. 7. Her Savvy Fashion Style
Khloe is classy and chic when it comes to her fashion sense. When wearing dresses, pants, tops or a nice pair of pumps, everything compliments her amazing body. She can rock anything as simple as black, or as funky as some animal print.
2. 6. Her Witty Sense Of Humor
Family feuds and drama fuels the air on their family show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Khloe, by far, makes the show so entertaining, by adding her sense of humor in order to amuse the viewers. Whether it’s helping to enlighten a situation, or giving one of her sister’s a hard time, she seems to always make me laugh throughout the show.
3. 5. Her ability to protect and stand up for all her sister’s
Whether they are being made fun of, scorned, praised, or overwhelmed by paparazzi, we all know, the Kardashian’s are all over the media. From Scott and Kourtney’s rocky relationship, to Kim and Kris’s troublesome marriage, Khloe is able to be a supportive sister and be there when she is needed most. Not to mention, stand up to the media when her family is being bashed.
4. 4. Her capability to ignore the “Father Scandal”
Robert Kardashian, father of Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob, passed away in 2003. Recently, rumors have come through that he is not the real father of Khloe’s. As seen on the show, she was successfully able to ignore all the rumors, despite people telling her to get a paternity test. She kept in mind that whatever the answer may be, he had always been a father to her, therefore, she will forever consider him her father. She also feels as though Bruce has stepped in at a crucial time. Makes sense to me!
5. 3. Her admirable and loving marriage with Lamar Odom
Khloe and Lamar tied the knot after dating for only ten days. TEN DAYS! Everyone had their doubts, but they seem to be growing stronger everyday. He is very supportive of the family’s TV show, and she attends every single one of Lamar’s home games. On the show, we saw Kim’s failed marriage to Kris Humphries, and Kourtney and Scott’s difficult relationship. But her marriage to Lamar outshines them all. One can only hope they find a bond as strong as theirs!
6. 2. She simply puts family first
This reality TV show is all about the crazy life of a famous family, but in the end, they are all supporting each other and helping each other through every roller coaster that they seem to experience. Khloe is everyone’s backbone. She has helped Kendall and Kylie with their PacSun fashion line, Rob with his Arthur George socks, Kim with her pregnancy, and of course supporting Lamar. Family is clearly her number one priority.
7. 1. My final reason for loving Khloe is the way she has loved her body when the media was criticizing her
We see many young women now who are very self conscious of their bodies, and unable to accept themselves as they are, beautiful. It is simply unacceptable for anyone to be criticizing Khloe on her body, when she is nothing but hot and sexy! She has ignored those who say she needs weight loss programs, and has sent a message that you should love yourself no matter what the criticism entails.
