Part Two of the season opener kicks off with a discussion of Malika's boyfriend, Adrian Wilson, a player for the Arizona Cardinals.  We try to figure out whether Rob (or the rest of the Free World) actually cares about this situation. The jury is still out on that for now. Also, we also see Lamar dealing with insomnia, brought on by the NBA lockout … still getting no specifics about the move to Dallas. Later on, Khloe and Malika go on a walk and discuss the potential “baby mama drama” situation.

Tennessee Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander caused a ripple on Capitol Hill last week by announcing he will drop out of his party's Senate leadership to pursue a more independent course, which would seem to be a break from the GOP's my-way-or-the-highway solidarity. The news that in January he will give up his No. 3 position as Republican conference chairman was particularly surprising because the two-time presidential candidate has always been a conspicuous climber. A few years ago he ran for the No. 2 spot as Senate Republican whip and missed by a single vote; he had been expected to try again, with Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the incumbent whip, slated for retirement.

Shockingly, stars are jumping on board because this stuff is big business. Jeter's cologne, Driven, raked in $27 million in sales last year, according to Forbes . We'll give you a second to take that in. Still with us?

While the Internet salivated over an album cover (an album that has produced one song that was both terrible and forgettable), the best rap album of 2011 — thus far — had been available for purchase two days before. Kendrick Lamar quietly dropped Section.80 on iTunes late Friday night, and to sleep on it would be mistake. The West Coast rapper has gained blog traction thanks to a dexterous flow, but it's how he uses it that really inspires. With each song, Lamar challenges himself to not only tell a story, but to also attack the beat in ways lesser rappers simply wouldn't consider.

LOS ANGELES - -Lamar Odom just can't help himself when it comes to the sweet stuff. He loves candy. He even credits his consumption of sugary treats for fueling his double double performances in games 5 and 6 of the Western Conference finals that helped the Los Angeles Lakers close out the Denver Nuggets and reach the NBA Finals. "It's funny because the games I played well were the games where I ate candy for breakfast," he said, grinning. "It's the reason why I got double digits in points and rebounds.

It was the late-evening studying in his bedroom through which Lamar Simmons learned that patience and persistence could lead to fulfilled potential. That's when Steve Simmons and his 9-year-old son "would get a little night light out and be on the floor, reading, writing and doing math," said the elder Simmons. "A lot of homework was coming home, but math was the big thing," said Lamar Simmons, who would try in vain to prematurely end the homework sessions.
