Reality TV star and now talk show host Khloe Kardashian has confirmed that her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, is doing great after finally being released from the hospital. She details the harrowing three months since he was rushed to a Nevada hospital due to an accidental overdose.

ABC News shared a video of Khloe’s interview on Good Morning America on Wednesday, where she spoke about her life, her family, and her new talk show, “Kocktails With Khloe.” Of course, her husband’s recent release from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center became a topic of the conversation. "He’s doing great but, you know, it’s a long journey and it’s something that he’s working really hard on," she said.

Khloe shared that Lamar is a fighter and the progress he has made is astounding, considering that they were told he had only “hours to live” when she first rushed to his side at the Sunrise Hospital in Nevada. Lamar was found unresponsive on Oct. 13, after a weekend of binge partying in the Love Ranch in Nevada.

He has since received most of his treatment at Cedars-Sinai, but is now recovering in a private medical facility. Khloe admits that she put her life on hold when Lamar landed in the hospital. She says that she still considers him to be her soulmate, and would continue to support him through the long journey to recovery. However, an actual romantic reconciliation is not on her mind.

“I do believe that we’re soulmates but ... that’s not even where my head is at. It’s all about his health and my happiness and his happiness and right now those are two individual things,” she said. Khloe is currently dating Houston Rockets star James Harden, despite constant speculations stating that they have broken up due to her continuing support for Lamar.
