Khloe Kardashian is amazed she married basketball star Lamar Odom because she used to be distrustful of men who played the sport
Khloe Kardashian never thought she would date a basketball player.
The reality TV personality is married to LA Lakers star Lamar Odom and she admits she always expected sportsmen to be cheaters, but has now realised her perception is wrong.
She said: "Before Lamar, I would have said, 'Ew, there's no way I'd date a basketball player.'
"I stereotyped them - I thought basketball players have ample opportunities with girls, are always travelling and don't have time for a girlfriend.
"But their bad reputation is silly, Lamar and I spend loads of time together. I think it depends on the man. You could be a secretary and a cheater - it's not the career, it's the person."
Khloe and Lamar currently star in their own self-titled TV series and she says her husband is now as comfortable in front of the cameras as she always has been.
She said: "Having cameras follow me around is like second nature and I'm really used to it now.
"Lamar didn't know what to expect when we first started but now he's a pro.
"I met Lamar's dad for the first time on camera, which wasn't planned. I was kind of uncomfortable about it because it was such a personal thing, but that's just reality TV for you."
