After the media barrage covering the collapse and hospitalization of Lamar Odom, there are voices that feel they have something to say about Odom’s tragedy. Or that there’s some money to be made out of this. That’s perhaps the reasoning behind Dennis Hof’s interview with Nancy Grace. Hof, the owner of The Love Ranch, the brothel where Odom collapsed, went on television and started revealing all kinds of information that Odom and his family might have wanted to remain private.
While it’s important to know the truth about what happened to Odom, Hof’s comments to Nancy Grace and Entertainment tonight add nothing to knowing about the pro athlete’s condition. In fact, he seems eager to disclose how much Odom spent in his business and what services he got for that fee. That information is unnecessary, and just goes to show the horrible obsession the media has with reality show celebrities.
During his interview with Nancy Grace, Hof comments on how a Kardashian family representative reached out to him to ask him to please not speak to the media while Odom is in hospital. He then proudly blurts out that he told him to “go to hell.” Hof is trying to sell the angle of the Kardashians trying to hide the truth and control the narrative of what is out there regarding Odom’s condition. However, this argument means nothing unless Hof actually has something to say about Odom that will help him or the public. He even spouted more bile about the Kourtney Kardashian by saying: “If she really cared about this man, he wouldn’t be at my place with my girls.” After seeing Hof’s “tell-all” comments, it’s clear that his only real interest in the matter is publicity.
