Kim Kardashian’s marital problems equaled big ratings for Season 2 of Kourtney and Kim Take New York — bigger than the domestic bliss of Khloe and Lamar Odom on Khloe & Lamar. According to Hollywood Life, momager Kris Jenner has decided that the adorable couple needs to spice up their spin-off with a little relationship strife to gain more viewers.

An insider tells the mag that Kris has been hounding Khloe, telling her that “if it weren’t for Lamar, she would not have her own reality show.” The Kardashian matriarch allegedly asked them “to embellish the conflicts in the marriage” because it’s “what viewers want.”

Understandably, the lovebirds — Lamar in particular — are not totally sold. According to previous reports, the Dallas Maverick has already been worried about the show taking his focus off his other true love, basketball, and the source dishes that he told Khloe that he’s not interested in faking drama.

“Lamar is a pretty laid back person but he has had enough,” explains the insider. “He feels like a puppet.”

Stay strong, Lam Lam! We’d much rather watch Khlomar’s happily ever after. They will beat the odds, dang it!
