Kardashian, 29, has remained supportive of her husband throughout his career. She admitted she was "sad" when Odom was traded to the Mavericks, but kept a positive attitude about moving from Los Angeles to Texas. "I am sure I will love it but I am a tad thrown off...I know for a fact blessings are everywhere!" she tweeted at the time. "Everything happens for a reason. God is great."
