Former NBA star Lamar Odom made the surprising statement that the time he spent with the Kardashians and being part of their record-breaking reality show, was the best part of his adult life — and he wants back in.
In fact, the 39-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers and former Big3 participant wants to repair his relationship with the Kardashians in general, and ex-wife Khloe Kardashian in particular.
“Doing reality TV and being married to Khloe, besides having children and besides me doing this motivational speaking that I’m going to start doing, that was the most memorable part and the best part of my adulthood. So, there’s nothing I regret about that,” Odom told the entertainment publication.
“And hopefully, me going to public speaking can even bring me closer to the Kardashians and help me rebuild that bridge,” Odom said.
Odom spoke with TMZ Live on Tuesday, saying he is busily taking inventory of his life and that, with hard work and continued healing from his litany of mistakes, he can ingratiate himself with the famous clan.
The author of Darkness to Light: A Memoir said his motivational speaking with MicDrop has been very therapeutic and has enabled him to start forgiving himself for his well-documented bouts of infidelity, chronic drug and alcohol abuse and being an admitted deadbeat dad.
Odom also said including his children in his motivational speaking has helped him reconnect with his kids after years of estrangement.
“This is a great way for me to make up the time I lost with them and help them get better as well,” Odom said somberly.
