Sometimes you've got to get away from reality TV to get real.
So say Khloé Kardashian
and Lamar Odom in addressing rumors that E! pulled the plug on their show, Khloé and Lamar.
"Our show is not cancelled," Kardahsian, 27, tells
"Lamar and I have chosen ... to take a break this summer. ... We just want to take a little time off for Lamar to be with family time, kids, basketball, Olympics, you never know. So, we have a lot on our plate right now."
Odom's future in the NBA is up in the air after he ended a disappointing stretch with the Dallas Mavericks by severing ties with the team last month. He hopes to play in the summer Olympics and on an NBA team next season.
"We just want to be happy," Odom, 32, tells ET.
"We'll take our time and we'll get back to it when it's time."
