Khloe Kardashian Opens Up About IVF Struggles, Broken Marriage to Lamar

Spoiler Alert: Kids are not the solution. On Wednesday night's episode of Kocktails With Khloe, the ever-candid host, Khloe Kardashian, opened up about how she tried to save her marriage to Lamar Odom.

"At the time, I was like , 'Oh, I have to have a baby!'" she told her guests. "That's all I wanted at the time, and I thought it would maybe fix the situation [with Odom], so I'm also happy it didn't happen because I was young. I was 27, and I thought, 'A baby will fix this,' and it's not going to fix that."

Opening up about that time on her show, Kardashian revealed that the range of emotions she was going through ended up botching her lip fillers.

"I looked crazy, and I still think the effects are in there! I went to have it dissolved like three times," she said, adding that her doctor had told her the results were off because she was experiencing too many "real emotions."

"My face was so f**ked," she said.

In February, Odom made his first appearance since the incident at Kanye West's Yeezy fashion show in New York City, with Kardashian by his side. The reality star recently penned a blog post about the importance of keeping her exes close.

"If it's a relationship that served a purpose in my life, like Lamar, why wouldn't I want them in my life afterwards?" she wrote. "Just because you break up with someone doesn't mean you lose that connection."
