Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian land reality show

Newlyweds Khloe Kardashian, 26, and Lamar Odom, 30, are adding to the family business with yet another reality show.

Let’s hope it works out better for them than it did for “Newlyweds” Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey.

The show will chronicle shock-jock Khloe’s quest to get pregnant by her multi-million-dollar Laker husband, in addition to other gripping storylines — like furnishing her McMansion — according to reports.

Nuzhat Naoreen of HollywoodCrush MTV reports:

Although E! has not confirmed the details, the show will apparently center around Khloe’s desire to start a family with Lamar, as well as her role as a stepmom to his children (sounds very “Adventures in Babysitting” to us!). Side note: are we the only ones left in the world who didn’t realize he was already a dad?

We don’t doubt that Khloe will be able to carry her own show, as she tends to be the most out-spoken and animated of the three sisters, but we are a little worried that this will lead to Kardashian overload. After all, they are kind of everywhere (they’re practically the royal family of Twitter). Don’t get us wrong, we’re not complaining yet, but we do wonder whether they might be close to their exposure limit. editor says:

It’s a victory for humanity that the Kardashians will finally receive some much-needed television exposure! But seriously, it’s too bad this show can’t be merged with “Basketball Wives” on VH1 or something.

Nuggets will not trade Carmelo Anthony

Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine reports:

Nuggets will not trade Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony will be a member of the Denver Nuggets next season — whether he accepts the team’s offer of a contract extension or not.

With speculation that Denver may trade their All-Star forward growing over the past week, a high-ranking Nuggets official said the club has no intentions of moving its best player.

“There is no way we are trading Carmelo Anthony,” the official said. “We’re 100 percent certain of that.”

Anthony can opt out of his contract after next season and become a free agent, one year after other top members of his draft class have potentially turned this summer into the most volatile in league history.

Celtics sign Semih Erden

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed center Semih Erden.  Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. It’s rumored to be a one-year deal, but we assume it’s nonguaranteed.

Erden, a 7’0” 240lbs center, was selected by the Celtics with the 60th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.  The native of Gaziosmanpasa, Turkey was a starter for Fenerbahce Ulker this past season when they won the Turkish League championship and averaged 8.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.  Erden  shot an impressive 62.4% from the field during the 42 Turkish League games that he played in last season.  Erden will be competing for Turkey in the upcoming 2010 FIBA World Championships to be played in his native country.
