In the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (scroll down for video), big sister Kim Kardashian is “terribly worried” about Khloe’s way of dealing with her ex, Lamar Odom. Seems Khloe, 31, just can’t stop “getting herself into trouble” where Lamar is concerned. According to Hollywood Life, it’s hard to tell whether the exchanges between Khloe and Lamar are “harmless banter or dangerous flirting,” and Kim, 34, doesn’t want to wait to find out. The protective oldest of the Kardashian siblings wants to put a stop to it now.

The episode is set to air tonight, Sunday, October 4, and the whole world will have a chance to see what Kim is so concerned about. The preview makes it clear that Khloe is definitely getting in over her head with Lamar again, which is “never good news.” Kim knows that, and fans know that, but Khloe doesn’t seem to get it. Now Khloe’s having “flirty” phone conversations with her ex-husband, Lamar, 35, and Kim says watching Khloe get “tangled with Lamar” again is making her feel “sick.”
“As a big sister, I’m very protective, and for him to be flirting with her on the phone makes me sick to my stomach.”
In the clip, Kim and Khloe are enjoying some KUWTK sister time together in the kitchen when the phone rings. Khloe is eager to answer it, even though Kim is watching “warily,” and clearly isn’t happy with her sister’s attitude. Fans agree with Kim. Twitter user Miss G wrote that she feels so bad for Khloe because she’s still so in love with Lamar.
I feel so bad for khloe she’s still so in love with Lamar 😕

Miss G isn’t alone. Tons of fans are tweeting how much they loved Khloe and Lamar together.

Lamar and Khloe’s “messy” relationship is getting in the way of Khloe’s future happiness. Current boyfriend James Harden didn’t like what he saw earlier this year, when Lamar said some really scary things about other men dating Khloe. In an interview with In Touch, Lamar claimed that he would never consider himself “serious with another woman” because he and Khloe will never part. That’s not good news for James. There was even a veiled threat in Lamar’s little rant.
“To sum it up, if a man is attempting to court Khloé, he’s probably wasting his time.”
A source spoke to Hollywood Life about James feelings for Khloe and the “bizarre” situation.
“James is rethinking this whole Khloe situation and is starting to believe his NBA friends who told him she was bad for business. He’s thinking about ending this before it gets too out of control.”
No wonder Kim is slamming her sister for continuing to talk with Lamar. It sounds dangerous! In the clip, Kim points out that Khloe wouldn’t jump so fast to answer a call from French Montana, another former flame. But Khloe doesn’t see the point at all. To her, Lamar is a completely different category. “Why would French and Lamar by in the same category?” she says to Kim.
Khloe will have to decide for herself, but keeping Lamar in her life isn’t going to help her build a good relationship with James or any other man. Right now, James is “100 [percent] committed to her,” “focused on making his relationship work,” and he doesn’t want to walk away. On the other hand, a source told Hollywood Life that Lamar’s interview left James “dumbfounded” and “actually scared.”
Some fans think the ongoing friendship between Khloe and Lamar is a good thing. One Twitter user suggested that they might be each others’ sanity right now.
@PerezHilton I see no problem with Khloe talking to Lamar. Right now, they might be each others “sanity”

What do you think? Should Khloe cut Lamar out of her life altogether, or is a little chatting back and forth okay?
