Lamar Odom is feeling the love from Celebrity Big Brother viewers after he got candid about his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian, on the CBS series.
Odom told Us Weekly on Tuesday, February 22, about the connection he shares with Kardashian after he was evicted from the Big Brother house. He said,
"Actually, it's really nice to hear the support. It's refreshing. When you marry someone in 30 days, they'll always be connected to you somehow, someway. She'll always have a place in my heart."
The retired athlete noted that the KUWTK star's help after his near-fatal 2015 overdose was monumental to him, adding,
"When I came out of the coma, she took care of me. I'm talking about a woman that wiped my backside when I couldn't do it myself. So, I'm fond of her for that. She had a lot of dignity and pride as well as I did."
Odom also revealed what he would say to his ex-wife if he had the opportunity.
"First, I would ask her how she's doing, how her child is doing," he began before admitting his desire for a date with the TV star. "And maybe just ask her for, you know, lunch. Just to be cordial. You know, just to be around her would be a blessing for me."
Lamar mentioned Kardashian numerous times throughout the show, previously confessing that "ruining his marriage" was his "biggest regret in life."
The former couple announced their split in 2013 after four years of marriage. Before calling it quits, the duo starred in a reality show titled Khloé & Lamar. In 2015, Kardashian temporarily withdrew her divorce petition when Odom was hospitalized so that she could make medical decisions on his behalf. They finalized their divorce in December 2016.
