    The Odoms promo show

    Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom are one step closer to the premiere of their very own reality show, “Khloé & Lamar.”

    Beat Mike Tyson

    You might actually be able to defeat Mike Tyson in the ring. The virtual ring, that is. The former heavyweight is launching a new iPhone game called “Mike Tyson’s Main Event.”
