Lamar Odom was released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles amid peppy progress reports from the Kardashians. But our source says he’s still in a “zombie-like” condition. He stares vacantly for long periods, has trouble talking and walks awkwardly.

Meanwhile estranged wife Khloe Kardashian is still milking him for publicity. She appeared on “Good Morning America” today and said they were still “soulmates.”

She also appeared on the “Howard Stern Show” on Sirius Radio where she blabbed even more.

That’s even though she’s moved on with pro basketballer James Harden. She denied reports she had put the relationship on hold. But she has been so busy with her new talk show, “Kocktails with Khloe,” and other obligations, she hasn’t spent all that much time with Lamar, our source says.

Oddly, she also begged for privacy because of his shocking overdose. The whole family said they were no longer going to talk about him to help with his rehabilitation.

Oh well, that didn’t last long.

“I do believe that we’re soulmates, but that’s not even where my head is even at now,” a chirpy Khloe gushed on GMA. “I’m more from a friend standpoint now.”

“I genuinely love him and genuinely want him to be healthy and happy like I would with any of my family members or loved ones,” she added.


Khloe went on and on about him and continues to be upbeat about his condition. Considering he was near death after overdosing during a four-day bender at a Nevada prostitution ranch, his recovery is miraculous.

Host Lara Spencer noted that it was the first time she’d agreed to sit down and talk about “the journey you’ve been through,” she said.

Hey, Khloe has a new business enterprise to promote, so nothing is out of bounds–to a point.

Of course, Lara asked no tough questions, like, where was Khloe when Lamar was spiraling downward? Before his overdose, she portrayed him like he was a stalker.

At least there’s some good news for Lamar. He won’t be prosecuted for drug violations as a result of his Nevada bender. That’s just as well. He’s already put himself through hell.
