House of Horrors? Five tips to help you ensure that Halloween is a Treat for your Kids after a Divorce

1. Work Together- You and your ex may not always agree, but it's important to present a united when it comes to planning major events. Even if you're used to being a single parent most of the time, holidays including Halloween often require you to work together to make sure things run smoothly.

Typically overdosing on herbal stimulants and cocaine in a Nevada brothel signals the end of a marriage not the beginning of a reconciliation. However, as we know, the Kardashians are never the type to do what is expected. Over the past few weeks, the Kardashians (specifically sister Khloe) have found their way back onto the front pages of gossip magazines as a result of estranged Kardiashian in-law and star NBA, Lamar Odom being found unconscious on the brothel outside of Las Vegas earlier this month. Despite a pending divorce action, Khloe and her family members rushed to Odom's Cedars-Sinai hospital bed after he was life-flighted to the Los Angeles hospital unconscious. The events became even more dramatic when various news outlets broke the news that despite reports, Odom and Kardashian were, in fact, still legally married.
