On the 11th episode of Khloe and Lamar (strange in itself because typically the Keeping up with the Kardashians franchise runs 10 episodes a season), Rob’s obsessive compulsive disorder escalates in Dallas, and Malika gets jealous of Khloe’s new friendship.
Khloe has always known that Rob has slight OCD when it comes to cleanliness, organization and the number 7. Now that he’s in Dallas, Khloe watches in amazement as he complains about the maid and tries to reorganize Khloe’s closet. Rob tells her he’s having issues with his apartment back home and is feeling stressed by it.
Malika, Khloe’s bff from L.A., arrives for a visit. The friends have missed each other, never having spent this much time apart. Malika wants to go to lunch and Khloe lets her know they will be joined by her new friend, Porschla Kidd, wife of Mavs player Jason. During lunch, Malika feels left out of the conversation gets a little jealous. This gets worse when Malika, Rob and Khloe visit an animal sanctuary and are joined by Porschla. Malika is put out, not understanding why Khloe can’t spend time with just her. Malika complains to Rob who coldly tells her to live with it. Khloe begins to notice that Malika is acting standoffish and is keeping her distance. On the way home in the car, Rob thinks he left the bear cage open but Khloe says she saw him close it. Still, he wants Khloe to call the place to make sure. Malika gently mentions why she acted rudely at the sanctuary and reminds Khloe she’s only in town for a few days. Khloe thinks she is being dramatic but tells her she will make time just for her.
Khloe researches OCD online and learns that it the behaviors are worse when the person is under pressure. Since Rob is having issues with his apartment back home, Khloe realizes that’s why Rob’s compulsions are getting worse. Rob is trying to handle his L.A. troubles from Dallas but it’s overwhelming him. He hits a pothole but he thinks he hit an animal and makes a dozen U-turns to try to figure it out. When he nearly kills them driving the wrong way on a one way street, Khloe insists she take the wheel. He refuses to get in the car. Khloe tells him he seriously needs to get help. Rob himself is freaked out by his inability to let go of the situation.
Malika comes to the condo dressed up and ready to go out as planned with Khloe. When she sees Khloe is still in casual clothes, Malika lets loose on her. Malika yells that her feelings are hurt because Khloe moved away and now doesn’t want to spend time together. Khloe apologizes and admits maybe she handled things wrong. Rob calls an OCD therapist to try to get help. Khloe is very proud that Rob is addressing his issues like a man.
On next week’s episode of Khloe and Lamar, Khloe questions whether she’s really a Kardashian. The next episode of Khloe and Lamar airs Sunday, May 13 at 10 p.m. on E!
