Khloe Kardashian Gives Lamar Odom Update: Lamar Is Walking

It’s been a long road for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, since Lamar’s hospitalization last October. Khloe, 31, has been supportive of Lamar, 36, throughout his ordeal of overdosing, near death, and intensive medical care. Finally, there’s some good news and an update for fans of Khloe and Lamar this January. According to Us Weekly Magazine, Khloe told fans in a chat during Live! With Kelly and Michael that Lamar’s condition has improved and he’s doing “great.”

The host of Kocktails with Khloe shared the Lamar update after Odom left the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week. Odom was moved to a private facility much closer to Khloe’s home.

“It was terrifying and scary,” explained Khloe, while chatting with the show’s hosts during the televised discussion.

While discussing the news of Lamar’s condition and return home, Khloe elaborated on her reaction, and announced a very special piece of news. Gossip site Celebuzz reports that Kardashian explained that Lamar’s years playing professional basketball and having “so many years of working out every single day,” made something “crazy” happen.

“He wasn’t even walking three weeks ago, and now he’s walking. We were able to leave the hospital — he was able to walk out of the hospital.”

This is excellent news for fans, and for Khloe herself as she adjusts to Lamar’s recent transfer to a private hospital. The KUWTK star had Odom moved to a private facility much closer to home, in Calabasas, California. The move was Khloe’s idea, who is always looking out for her husband. Things are looking good for the ex-NBA player, and fans can hope to see him back in action soon.

Khloe is clearly excited about her husband’s return to health, and gladly said of the recovery that it was a truly “great thing.” Khloe went on to assure listeners that she’s “happy for him” because Lamar is “trying and really making great strides.” Never doubting the famous athlete’s strength, Khloe gives Lamar all the credit for regaining the ability to walk.

“And that’s a testament to his own will and desire to get better.”

People reports that as a sign of support for Odom, Khloe shortened her famously luscious Kardashian hair. She explained this unusual show of support as something she just felt like she needed when she was so caught up in regularly visiting Lamar in the hospital. Khloe said she cut her hair off because once she “got out of there for a minute, I was like, ‘I need to get rid of this negativity.'” The display shows that, despite some past issues, the couple are as strong as ever.

Even though the recent recovery is good news, the athlete’s life has had its fair share of setbacks and bad news. In an interview with Howard Stern, the Kardashian sister told a revealing tale of some of Odom’s less agreeable attributes. The discussion covered the whole four year marriage, and specifically mentioned serious infidelity on Lamar’s part. The cheating was described as “disgusting” by Khloe herself, which fans are likely to agree with.

Kardashian told Howard that Lamar, with his considerable charm, “was so great” when it came to knowing how to make her feel like she “was the only one and I was this princess.” She said that Odom’s attitude was hardly suspicious, and that she “never speculated about his cheating.” Lamar was apparently very good at hiding his disloyalty. Khloe told Stern during the January 13 interview, “He was so good. Nothing was on his cellphones.”

We can only hope that Odom’s progress continues at such a brisk pace, and that he isn’t stuck in recovery for too much longer. Certainly, Khloe is excited at her boo’s fast recovery.
