No tea for two

There’s a saying I’ve seen on posters and placards.  It reads,

“A woman is like a teabag.  You never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water”

 When I heard the news about Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian’s pending divorce, I thought of that phrase and said well, maybe she’s of the green tea variety.

I mean, what happened to “for better or worse”?  None of us was a fly on the bedroom wall and really don’t know about everything that went on in their lives but I have to think that with the Kardashian family’s penchant for self promotion along with the notion that any publicity is good publicity, if there was any trouble in paradise, we would surely have heard of it.

So things were good then, other than this bump in the road.  Which makes me ask again, what happened to better or worse and stand by your man?

TMZ is reporting that Khloe is waiting for the right moment to get the ball rolling so as not to push Lamar over the edge by OD’ing or committing suicide.

That the lady has a high opinion of herself goes without saying.

But if you’re that concerned with his emotional well-being, then don’t you try to stick it out with him to see if he can turn this hard corner in his life?  Or do you just drop him like he’s a hot potato?

Still, I’m not going to beat up on her too much as I don’t want to be accused of hating.  Truth is I respect the entire family’s business acumen.  They’re far from stupid and are very canny when it comes to marketing themselves as a brand.

Problem is that somewhere along the line with all their achievements, Khloe forgot that a marriage is more like a business than you realize.  It’ll have its up days and its down days and how well you manage those down days will determine the measure of your overall business, aka marriage, success.

Oh well, all we can do is wish them both luck as they move through this trying time.  At least that’s what I’m doing.  Even though I’ll never understand celebrity marriages and the cavalier way they dissolve that which was supposed to be enduring and fruitful.

I guess it’s more us than them.   Our expectations are normal and theirs are, well, Hollywood.  And that’s a whole other planet.
