Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are packing it in -- we've learned they are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion. Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Khloe has given several San Fernando Valley realtors a pocket listing -- meaning the house will not appear in the multiple listing service. It's being done on the down low. Any prospective buyer must pre-qualify before seeing the house, meaning they must have the dough to buy the crib. We're told Khloe and Lamar want a cool $4 mil for the house. They paid $3.95 million in 2009. Our sources say Khloe is the driving force behind the sale, telling realtors she wants to "start fresh and move on." TMZ.com

Odom and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, filmed part of their reality TV show, Khloe & Lamar, during this past NBA season. Cameras and workers from the show were frequently in the locker room before and after Mavs' games -- even as Odom's game was in a downward spiral. But on Oprah's Next Chapter, which aired Sunday night, Odom said the reality TV show wasn't a distraction and had no effect on his poor performance with the Mavs. "I think this past year I didn't perform on a level that I wanted to perform as far as being a professional basketball player,'' Odom said. "And so I think I have to reprove myself.'' Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Charles Barkley says Lamar Odom had a difficult time adjusting to life in Dallas because he was suffering from a divorce. Not a divorce from his reality TV star wife Khloe Kardashian, but a divorce from his former NBA team. During a local radio interview on Wednesday, the NBA on TNT analyst and Hall of Fame player said Odom never reached his potential with the Mavericks because his feelings were still hurt from being traded by the Los Angeles Lakers. "I think he just, like, mentally was like, 'Wow, they don't like me anymore,'" Barkley said on the Galloway and Company show on KESN-FM 103.3 in Dallas. "And I don't think he ever regrouped, or ever recovered." FOXSports SouthWest

"You know I love my man Cubes," Barkley said. "I'm surprised it took that long. The D-League thing was, to me, a red flag. But that didn't wake him up. And I've got to tell you something. I always pull for my players. I always pull for the players. But the fact that they've got to pay him, I think is a joke. I mean, because he didn't earn his salary. He didn't earn it at all. "I like Lamar as a person, but I'm disappointed about everything that happened in Dallas. And it's a shame that the Mavs got to pay him, to be honest with you. He don't deserve to get paid for what he put out there this year. He doesn't deserve it, plain and simple. FOXSports SouthWest

"I think it's a joke that he's gonna get paid for sitting at home for the next few months," Barkley continued. "In the NBA, we get paid every two weeks. So, Lamar's making close to $10 million a year. So, he's probably going to miss two paychecks. He's probably making $300,000 to $400,000 every two weeks. So, to sit at home and make that type of money just really pisses me off, to be honest with you, for the effort he put out there. "He's going to make hundreds of thousands of dollars his next two paychecks that he looks like he's going to miss, and that's not fair to the Mavs, it's not fair to the game of basketball and I'm just disappointed in Lamar."

Drama may make for good reality television, but Lamar Odom’s emotions were too much for the Dallas Mavericks’ top brass. The Mavericks yesterday bounced Khloe Kardashian husband Odom — who arrived from the Los Angeles Lakers in December — after four months of poor performance, family drama and off-court antics that left the team’s management fed up. He’s been put on the inactive list until after the playoffs, after which the Mavs can trade him. “They grew tired of his BS and kicked him to the curb,” an NBA source told Page Six. “[The team] didn’t need someone pouting like a little kid.” New York Post

Sources believe the pressure of also playing in front of reality cameras for “Khloe and Lamar” pushed Odom into a slump. “When he wasn’t playing well, it meant he looked bad,” said a source. “And when you have a show about your life, when you are off-court, you have to deal with the producers asking all those questions. He had a horrible summer, but . . . he was more concerned about the cameras and how he looked.” New York Post

Khloe Kardashian-Odom was a guest on Conan O'Brien's television show Wednesday night and discussed her thoughts on going to strip clubs with and without her husband. "I like strip clubs. I don’t mind it. I don’t go like every Tuesday for a lunch, it’s not that," she said. "Lamar and I, we enjoy it. It’s fun." Kardashian-Odom also admitted that Lamar is allowed to go without her. "Recently he went with some of his teammates and he asked, 'Do you mind if I go to a strip club, tonight?' I was like, 'Sure, go.' It’s like male bonding, why do I care," she said. "We have a very trustworthy relationship. Lamar’s a 6-10 man, he knows people are going to notice what he’s doing. He’s on his best behavior." Dallas Morning News
