Lamar Odom is trying to turn his life around, and it sure looks like a big part of that goal is to win ex-wife Khloe Kardashian back.

Lamar’s divorce to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was finalized in December, following a tumultuous three-year period.

Odom will be appearing on The Doctors Tuesday, January 17, and a sneak preview from his exclusive interview is eye-opening.

“Going forward, when you look at your life ahead of you, what are you looking forward to?” host Dr. Travis Stork asks the former NBA star.

After a brief pause, Odom stunningly says:

“Umm, honestly, I want my wife back.”

Khloe might have a tough time even entertaining that idea, and not just because she’s head over heels in love with Tristan Thompson. 

Lamar and Khloe married in 2009, but the marriage was absolutely littered with drama, especially from mid-2013 onward.

After some very public arguments, the couple called it quits due to Lamar’s cheating and his increased reliance on drugs. 

When it seemed like the pair were really over, Khloe called off the divorce proceedings due to Lamar almost dying of an overdose

That gesture of goodwill did not last long.

Any hope of reconciliation faded as Odom recovered from OD’ing, and Khloe reinitiated divorce proceedings in May 2016. 

While Lamar seems eager to have Khloe back, it’s pretty much a given that she’s heard it all before and will be unmoved.

And a third, and a fourth, and …

You get the idea. Lamar is fighting an uphill battle to say the least, but see what he has to say about it in his own words:
