Lamar Odom may have driven a massive wedge between himself and ex-wife Khloe Kardashian following his near brush with death after accidentally overdosing on drugs, but that doesn't mean there's bad blood between them. In fact, the two remain amicable towards each other despite Kardashian now dating another NBA athlete, Tristan Thompson.

Odom recently opened up about his relationship now with his former wife, who is busy juggling her Good American jeans business and her relationship with Thompson. The 37-year old athlete admitted that he and Kardashian still communicate with each other via text and that they don't really "hate" each other despite the divorce that was finalized in December 2016.

Athlete amenable to doing more reality shows

Lamar Odom told Life & Style during an event in August that he "just texted" Khloe Kardashian, saying, "I don’t think she hates me, even though she has every reason to. I definitely don’t hate her." When asked if he feels if he was taken advantage of for their reality TV series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and the spin-off, "Khloe and Lamar," he said, "I don’t think I was exploited by the Kardashians...With them, I got to see things in a totally different light. I learned how to deal with people and live spontaneously." The athlete added that he would even "absolutely do another reality show" if he was given a chance.

Khloe Kardashian wants kids of her own

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom never had children together and the reality TV star admitted in an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" that she only faked wanting to get pregnant with her ex-husband. Now that she's dating Tristan Thompson, who is also a father to one son, Kardashian is ready to start a family.

Hollywood Life reported that Kardashian wants a baby girl for herself and for Thompson, who already has a son. In fact, Kardashian is so excited to start a family that she's already thinking of baby names. She's not opposed to naming her future daughter with a name that begins with K, but she definitely keeps in mind Thompson's mother's name, Andrea, and wants to call her future baby "Andy" for short.

Kardashian said that while she is excited to start her own family (her sister Kim has two children, while Kourtney has three), she said that she and Thompson "both feel that it will happen when the time is right...We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together. Once you have kids you can’t get back your non-kid years."
