Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom Rent Kondo Krib in downtown Dallas

The ever-industrious gossip beavers over at E! Online gleefully revealed yesterday that after a brief but fevered and pap-trailed hunt for a house in the Lonestar State reality tee-vee star Khloé Kardashian and professional dribbler Lamar Odom have opted not to buy a big house in hoity-toity Highland Park or veh-heh-hehrrry posh Preston Holler and settled instead on a 2 bedroom loft-like condominium at the glittery 33-story W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences in downtown Dallas.

The high-floor condo crib, owned by Mack Hicks, the son of Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks and previously on the market at $1,625,000, was reportedly snatched up by Mister and Missus Odom just a few days before Jesus's birthday at a rental rate of $7,500 per month. It's not clear if the price includes the furnishings or if Missus Odom will have to bring in a nice, gay or lady decorator in to whip the place into reality tee-vee worthy condition.

The corner apartment is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that open to a narrow wrap around terrace and luxuriously equipped with automatic window shades so neither Missus or Mister Odom nor any of their cadre of personal assistants, bodyguards and publicity minders need ever suffer the indignity of pulling a damn shade when the sun gets dips down to a blinding level.

The open plan main living/dining/entertaining space includes a floating seating area/tee-vee lounge, billiard nook, kitchen-sized wet bar with loads of wine storage cabinets, snack/beverage counter, and an ice maker. The living room area is open to a streamlined Euro-style Varenna kitchen with sleek ebony cabinets, snow white counter tops, and fully integrated appliances by name brands that include Miele and Kupperbush.

The W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences complex offers hotel guests and residents access to 24-7 security and controlled access, doormen and concierge services, a zero-edge swimming pool and a lap pool, 5,000 square foot Bliss spa, two state-of-the-art fitness centers, an entertainment lounge, and VIP access to the on-site Craft restaurant by star chef and Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio.

Mister Odom, who has long and lucratively dribbled and shot orange rubber balls for the Lakers, was recently signed to the Dallas Mavericks through the 2012-13 season with an only "partially guaranteed" $8,200,000 annual salary. According to various sports related reports we can only barely understand, Mister Odom's contract apparently allows the Mavericks to cut and/or buy out his contract before the end of the season if they find themselves with a better option for a power forward.

Back in Los Angeles Mister Odom and Missus Kardashian-Odom shack up in a gated, 8,347 square foot mock-Med (mc)mansion in a gated enclave in hot as Hades and super-suburban Tarzana, CA. Property records show the then newly hitched couple picked up the 7 bedroom and 9 bathroom mini-estate in December 2009 for $3,950,000.

Now then, please someone get Your Mama a nerve pill, a tall gin & tonic and a promise we won't have to speak on the real estate matters of any of those over-exposed Kardashians for kwite some time.

Mama, it is a sign of my love for you and your work that I would even read a post with the name Kardashian in the title. At least this gets one of them out of California for awhile. Do the Kardahians know that Debbie already did Dallas. Of course that was a while back so perhaps it's time Dallas was done again.

"Kondo Krib."

Cute.

Mama, I admire you soldiering on even to kovering the kraptastic kartrashian klan. Good thing too, or I'd be klueless where they live as I find their version of reality a bit much to stomach.

I read that they just inked a deal for a kartrashian magazine now too. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm waxing nostalgic for the good old Paris Hilton days. At least there was only one of her.

Tom Hicks does NOT own the Rangers. He had to sell the team in Bankruptcy court b/c he went broke. The Hicks are cash strapped losers and are hated in Dallas.

Love the NYC Greenwich vibe in this dallas glass box building! Bravo to the decorator (or the pink Mercedes driving staging lady) for this charming transformation. Now of that decorator can do some magic with Khloe and make her less drag looking we have a winner all around!

Mama. We love you! But please...you cant have it both ways. You despise this Klan as much as anyone. So to raise their name AND for a rental?? I would rather hear about Beyonce's Mom than any of them...and that says it all.

all the k hate, seems like they are living the new American dream, famous for nothing and getting rich, i want some

What is most funny is that Kim Zolciak is stupidly paying more rent than Kloie and Lamar.

I also despise this Kult. At Least they live within their ridiculous means. At least they actually do have money invested in real estate and own their property so that when this is Famous for nothing dies out they will not be homeless and Bankrupt like the Others so called "better folk"

Kondo Krib!!!That is really nice!!!

pj said...

It figures they would rent there..."klassy" hotel & scene (not!) and the W is directly across the street from the American Airlines Arena where the Mavericks play. BTW...Ross Perot Jr. has the penthouse floor and helipad on the roof of this building.

The kitchen area needs to be re-painted or re-done because it just looks tacky.

Kelsey said...

I like the kitchen and the pool table. I wonder if they will ever buy a house there.
