KHLOE & LAMAR
Reality has never looked bleaker for Khloé and Lamar Odom. With their marriage under strain from his substance abuse and alleged infidelity, the couple seemed to turn a corner last week when the 33-year-old former NBA star went into rehab. But the next day, he checked out of the facility. Since then the two have led separate lives – he’s staying at his crash pad in downtown Los Angeles while she’s splitting her time between their Tarzana home and her mother Kris Jenner’s house. “The whole situation is really sad,” says a close Kardashian pal. “She wants to save the marriage, but he isn’t in the right mind-set right now.”
While reps for the two remain mum on the status of their relationship, each has attempted to maintain some semblance of normalcy. Over the weekend Odom was spotted walking around his neighborhood, sometimes in the middle of the night, and getting takeout sushi. Meanwhile Kardashian, 29, spent time with her family at the Jenner estate. Though her pal says this period is “heartbreaking,” Kardashian is keeping any hint of mourning behind closed doors, stepping out with pals and playing online pranks on her sister (see box). “What is she supposed to do, sit around crying all day?” says the pal. “She’s done plenty of that already.”
KHLOé’S BIZARRE WEB BEHAVIOR
As her husband’s short-lived rehab stint played out in real time on the Internet, she kept her online musings to glamorous selfies, gym pics or crude tweets she posted on her half-sister Kylie’s account. A G-rated sample: “I love wearing Kims [sic] breast pump!!! Yummmy the smell of sour milk.”

CRESSIDA & KATE!
Cressida Bonas’s aristocratic mom, Mary-Gaye Curzon, has been divorced four times. Her half-sister Isabella is married to Richard Branson’s son.
Kate’s tight with sister Pippa, and their parents, Carole and Michael, have been married for 33 years.
The former dance student, 24 (far left, at her graduation recital in June), ran the 2010 London Marathon tied together with 33 friends, including Princess Beatrice.
Kate, 31, once modeled for a charity fashion show (far right) and trained with an all-female dragon-boat crew before dropping out due to security concerns.
“For Kate trainers are for running, and for Cressy they are for life,” says a source of Bonas’s laid-back style.
Even before she was a princess, Kate was known for her elegant, conservative style and tailored ensembles.

SINGING ABOUT LIAM?
THE POP STAR GETS EMOTIONAL—AND NAKED—IN YET ANOTHER SHOCKING PERFORMANCE
In the new music video for her latest single, “Wrecking Ball,” Miley Cyrus bares her skin—stripping down to just a pair of Doc Martens—and her soul. Letting tears fall while she demolishes a room, Cyrus, 20, croons, “All I wanted was to break your walls/All you ever did was wreck me.” Though a source says the tune is not about fiancé Liam Hemsworth, 23, another insider foresees an unhappy ending for the pair, who continue spending time apart due to work commitments. Says the insider: “Both know it will never work out.”
“Friends and family are encouraging them to split up and move on,” the insider says of Hemsworth (in London Sept. 2) and Cyrus (in her video). “They are arguing nonstop and seem to care less and less about their relationship.”
