Lamar Odom reveals he wants ex-wife Khloe Kardashian back in new interview with 'The Doctors'


A week after being released from a rehab facility following one month of treatment, former NBA star Lamar Odom is sitting down with The Doctors for a candid discussion about his life plans now that he's living clean -- and it seems he's got his sights set on his former flame, ex-wife Khloe Kardashian.

In this teaser for the show's upcoming interview, Odom sat down with host Dr. Travis Stork, who asked the troubled athlete what he's looking forward to in the years to come.

"Honestly, I want my wife back," Odom admitted with a smile as the audience cheered him on.

This isn't the first time the former Los Angeles Lakers star has said he's interested in reconciling with his ex. During an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians last May -- which aired before their divorce was finalized -- Odom said "I'll say my prayers" when asked if he'd like to get back with the Revenge Body star.

Odom and Kardashian tied the knot in 2009, but the fashion designer and reality star filed for divorce in 2013. Despite both parties signing the divorce papers in July 2015, the divorce was never officially approved by a judge.

In October 2015, Odom was discovered unresponsive at a brothel in Crystal, Nevada. He subsequently spent several weeks in the hospital, after which he began recuperating at a private rehabilitation center in Calabasas.

During his frightening medical incident, Kardashian withdrew her petition for divorce in order to oversee decisions regarding her estranged husband's medical care. At the time, she was adamant that the two had not reconciled.

Last May, Kardashian refiled her divorce paperwork and it was finalized by a judge in December. Later that month, Odom checked himself into a rehab facility in San Diego, seeking professional help for substance abuse and addiction. He completed treatment in early January.

While Odom might be interested in rekindling his romance with his ex-wife, Kardashian appears to have moved on. The 32-year-old TV personality is currently dating NBA pro Tristan Thompson, and the two just rang in the new year together with some steamy Instagram pics she snapped at a Miami nightclub.

The Doctors' candid sit-down interview with Odom airs Jan. 17. Check here for local listings.
