It’s been a long road to recovery for Lamar Odom, since his overdose in a Nevada brothel in October 2015. His wife Khloé Kardashian, who had allegedly filed for divorce over cheating, flew to his side and helped him get back on his feet. It looked for a moment like they might get back together, but Khloé sent the divorce papers though and she’s now in a very public relationship with Tristan Thompson. It seemed like she was too stressed out by her fear Odom would relapse, and decided she needed to leave the relationship.
Though he had a brush with death, Odom didn’t seem to kick his dependencies on drugs or alcohol immediately following his overdose. He announced his intention to go to rehab in early January for a month-long stay. Now Odom is appearing in a future episode of reality TV series The Doctors, and in a preview, he admits there’s only one thing he wants when he has his recovery in hand: Khloé.
In the clip, host Travis Lane Stork asks Odom, “Going forward, when you look at your life ahead of you, what are you looking forward to?”
To which Odom responds, “Um, honestly? I want my wife back.”
The audience cheers wildly. Whether or not this is true or a great line to boost ratings, it doesn’t seem like Khloé is in a rush to renew their relationship.
