In a new portrait of the Kardashian clan to promote season 8ht of their hit reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe’s husband, Lamar Odom, magically appears in the group shot.
In the happy snap Lamar Odom is seen snuggling up to his gorgeous wife Khloe Kardashian, 28.
However, in a promotional video for the popular programme which features outtakes of the shoot, Lamar Odom is noticeably absent.
As the camera flashes to the same set of stairs where one official portrait is taken, Khloe Kardashian sits with her family but Lamar Odom is not there.
Instead Khloe tenderly holds onto her brother Rob Kardashian’s arm instead.
In another shot, Khloe Kardashian is seen happily posing by the pool with her husband, looking particularly slender in a pretty floral skirt, a cream knit cardigan and sandals.
Also getting a touch up of the flattering kind is Rob Kardashian, who has recently been on a quest to shed 40 lbs off his frame.
Rob Kardashian, 26, appears significantly slimmer in the snap to how he currently looks with a more bulkier frame.
While Lamar Odom appears in the picture with the aid of Photoshop at least Khloe Kardashian has her man by her side, even if it is only computer wizardry.
Her pregnant sister, Kim Kardashian, meanwhile is once again left posing without her better half Kanye West in the snaps.
Despite being surrounded by her family members, Kim Kardashian, 32, cuts a somewhat lonely figure in the new family portraits.
Usually the centre of attention, Kim Kardashian does sit in the middle of the family’s sitting portrait but she is without her partner and father of her unborn baby Kanye West.
But the reason for Kanye West’s absence stems from his reluctance to appear on camera alongside the famous clan.
While Kanye West appeared in several episodes of Kourtney And Kim Take Miami, he reportedly refused to take part in the family’s main hit reality show.
This isn’t the first time members of the family have magically appeared in portraits.
Last year Khloe Kardashian was Photoshopped into her family Christmas card.
The reality starlet was unable to attend the photoshoot for the annual Kardashian-Jenner holiday card, and so she and husband Lamar Odom had to be added in later with the help of some computer wizardry.
Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Khloe Kardashian said: “We pretend that we’re always together. The powers of cameras and Photoshop.”
Khloe Kardashian’s younger half-sister Kendall Jenner, 17, had to be digitally added to the picture, too, as she was sick, as did Kourtney’s partner, Scott Disick.
Lamar Odom- who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team – also missed 2011’s dazzling 3D Christmas card shoot because he had a game.
Khloe Kardashian said: “That one we were all in but Lamar was Photoshopped because he had a game. It’s hard with his NBA schedule. Damn men with a career!”
