Some more details have leaked out about KHLOE KARDASHIAN and LAMAR ODOM'S big face-to-face last week. TMZ says that Lamar told Khloe he'd been sober for three days and planned to stay sober on his own without going to rehab. Khloe blew up and told Lamar he was in denial and needed rehab and wanted nothing to do with him until he got help. Sources say at some point during the meeting, Khloe found a pipe and what looked like crack in a baggie, but it wasn't clear if she found it on his person or the clothes he was picking up at the house. Khloe supposedly went ballistic, calling Lamar a "liar" and telling him, "I'm done with you," before throwing him out of the house. Word is that Lamar seemed "out of it" during the meeting and even accused Khloe of stealing his stash. Word is that Khloe is waiting until after the season finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians before filing for divorce.

It's time for another meteor shower! The Draconid meteor shower will light up the skies this evening just after sunset. They may not be the most spectacular, but they are the most convenient. Since they're best seen in the evening, you don't have to stay up all night for this one. Plus, this time around the moon won't be too bright and interfere with the display. As usual, try and get away from city lights so the eyes can adjust to the darkness for at least 20 minutes. Astronomers suggest lying on a blanket or reclining chair to get a full-sky view.
