Lakers Brides Vanessa Bryant and Khloe Kardashian have long been the subjects of feud rumors on the Tabloid Circuit, but the latest Word on the Curb claims that Vanessa is seething over Khloe’s upcoming E! reality soap with hubby Lamar Odom.
Earlier this month, E! bosses announced that the network was greenlighting a third spinoff of its smash docu-soap Keeping Up With The Kardashians, this time featuring Khloe and Lamar — who wed after a whirlwind month-long romance in Sept. 2009. No one was more livid to hear the announcement than the Bride of Kobe, say In Touch Weekly insiders.
Not only has Vanessa banned her husband of nearly a decade from guest-starring on the show, she’s reportedly gotten E!’s cameras banned from the Lakers locker room.
“Vanessa and Khloe have been longtime rivals,” an In Touch insider explains. “Vanessa has been pitching her own reality series, with no success yet, and she hates that rival Khloe is impinging on what she considers to be her terrority.”
Another friend adds: “Lamar has been ordered by the power that be to not talk about the Lakers. Lamar might not even be able to wear his uniform on-camera.”
