Lamar Odom's rehab reality show is a terrible idea

Lamar Odom should be focusing on his health, not on making a buck by telling his story

Lamar Odom will reportedly showcase his road to recovery following his near-fatal overdose in a new reality series.

According to Us Weekly, Odom, who just finalized his divorce with Khloé Kardashian and then promptly checked himself into a San Diego rehab facility, is dedicated to remaining on a healthy path.

"He went to continue making sure he stays sober and on the right path," a source told the outlet. "It was something he chose to do." The source added of Odom's decision to go to rehab, he “wanted to feel 100 percent again. He did not relapse, but felt like he wanted to get away and start fresh for the new year."

I can't be the only one thinking that a reality show is a terrible idea for Odom, who should be focusing on himself and his kids.

Filming a reality show is a hectic and consuming endeavor. There is a reason so many people get divorced after partaking in one. It puts strain on otherwise ordinary life moments.

The last thing a newly recovered addict needs is unnecessary stress.

Odom's lawyer Walter Mosley told Huffington Post in a statement, "Lamar is still a free agent with respect to his television rights and he looks forward to exploring the opportunity to work in television again in 2017. We’re going to aggressively try to find a place for him."

Little else is known about the reality show as of now, but here's to hoping Odom can be an exception to the reality show rule and make it work for himself while maintaining his sobriety.
