With Lamar Odom’s DUI in the news this morning on the heels of his alleged drug abuse, he’s been a topic of discussion for a little over a week now. Today, Dennis Rodman entered the conversation in an interview with the Huffington Post.
Rodman was plugging his new vodka, Bad Boy Vodka, and discussing various aspects of his career, family, and lifestyle. While talking about him being heavily involved in the party scene, Rodman was asked about the recent stories about Odom.
“I just don’t understand when you have so much money that you’re that bored that you really have to go to that extreme,” said Rodman in the interview with Huffington Post. “The sad thing about it is the fact that he’s not a bad guy. He used to come to my restaurants, clubs in Newport Beach a lot. He’s a good guy.”
“I don’t understand why he’s hiding in a hotel. You have a great life, you’re making so much money, you have a beautiful house, a beautiful family,” Rodman continued. “Don’t go backwards in life, especially when you worked so hard to get there.”
It’s kind of ironic hearing Rodman talking about the personal life and decisions of another ball player considering the lifestyle he employed during the course of his career, but everyone has an opinion on Odom right now. You can watch the interview below.
