Summertime, and the TMZ Video Embedding is Easy

Wednesday’s altercation in the streets of Hollywood between Mr. Khloe Kardashian and a pair of paparazzi vehicles is the latest instant national story anchored around some exclusive TMZ video.

The gossip site posted the Splash News footage last night and as a result, this morning it’s powering stories on both coasts. At press time, 25% of those answering an Access Hollywood poll are for Team Paparazzi, while New York Daily News entertainment reporter Rachel Maresca documents how Lamar Odom‘s famous wife backed him up on Twitter.

Odom, Kanye West and their significant reality TV others are accustomed to the paparazzi posse, so it typically takes something extra “special” to provoke. In this case, per The Huffington Post, the trigger was apparently a ruder-than-usual question:

According to Fame Flynet, the agency that obtained photos from the scene, Odom flipped out after being questioned about reports he has been cheating on his wife of four years.

After a Decade in Dallas, Kevin Boie Set to Oversee ABC7′s Digital Content

Kevin Boie is shifting to a city with no NFL football team. On the other hand, he’s doubling his immediate NBA cheering options and will soon be able to see first-hand what a properly motivated Lamar Odom can accomplish on the hardwood.

Boie is the new director of digital content for ABC7 in Glendale. He starts in January after five-plus years as a senior Web producer with FOX 4 KDFW and another five before that as the managing editor of the news website (previously

Mark Cuban Ready to Look at Dodger Books

The 2011 NBA trophy is parked in Mark Cuban‘s kitchen and Lamar Odom now wears a Mavericks uniform. So really, the colorful owner has no need to segue into baseball.

But this morning on the “Dan Patrick Show,” Cuban confirmed he’s still interested in buying the Dodgers and will approach the upcoming opening of the books like any other deal:

“My concern on the Dodgers is that someone is just going to come in and overpay. I’ve got a lot of money but I don’t have unlimited money, and to me, you’ve got to pay the right price because you don’t want all your money going to Frank McCourt.”

Lamar Odom’s Radio Shack Routine

There’s a whole bunch of ink and AM radio chatter being devoted this week to Lamar Odom, sensitive guy. He has abandonment issues… he should have taken the NBA trade veto more like a man… he’s a great guy, wronged.

Now comes a hilarious snippet from the rising star of the cross-town Clippers, Blake Griffin. What he told LA Times columnist T.J. Simers about the league’s most valuable sixth man suggests that Odom’s real problem this past week may have been a head swollen by reality TV:

“The other day I went into Radio Shack for something and the guy says, ‘Oh man, you don’t do like Lamar Odom does and send someone in first to check to see how many people are in here, do you?’ I was like, ‘Man, I just walked in to buy this thing — could you ring me up?’”

Lamar Odom’s PSA for Life Insurance Awareness Month

Off the court, Lamar Odom has gone through his share of personal heartache.

The Los Angeles Lakers forward lost his mom, Cathy Mercer, at the age of 12 to colon cancer. As a result of that tragedy, Odom signed on to be a spokesman for Life Insurance Awareness Month and appeared in a PSA on behalf of the Life Foundation.

Lakers Collapse at Home: Lamar Odom Talks Reality TV

Yikes. Tough timing for a non-basketball story about Lakers 6th man Lamar Odom. Odom is profiled in today’s LA Times, talking about the trouble he’s had adjusting to the demands of reality TV for his show “Khloe & Lamar.”

From the LAT:

There has been a sense of disquiet among even the most loyal Lakers fans as the team has struggled to regain the championship footing of the last two seasons. And yet, even as the team continued in the playoffs, Odom still made time to film the reality show. Friday, he sat down to tape one of the confessional-style interviews that populate the program, according to an E! spokeswoman.

Still, the producers say they went to great lengths to make sure the Lakers were OK with cameras trailing one of their star players.

Fox Sports West Contributor Commits Foul Analogies

Ugly. That’s the word that came mind when FishbowlLA stumbled over paragraph two of Matt Smith‘s Fox Sports West column celebrating LA Laker Lamar Odom, ahead of the power forward’s expected anointment this afternoon as the NBA’s sixth man. Check it out for yourself:

Odom is like caulk or grout–admittedly not the most flattering of analogies–without either your house falls apart. Odom fills in the cracks… all of them.
