The likelihood of seeing an actual Kardashian in the Big Brother house is slim to none. But that’s not stopping Lamar Odom from wishful thinking. While most Celebrity Big Brother players are gearing up for season 3 by binge-watching past seasons and devising strategies to make it to the end, Lamar is fantasizing about his ex-wife. Ahead of this week’s premiere, the former NBA star sat down with Entertainment Tonight and revealed who he’s hoping to run into when he enters the house. And, of course, it’s his famous ex.
Lamar told ET that he doesn’t have a list of people he doesn’t want to see in the house, but he was hoping to encounter his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian.
“Well, I’m hoping I’ll bump into Khloe Kardashian,” Lamar said. “I don’t really dislike or hate anybody, just anybody that doesn’t have a good spirit, anybody that’s not coming into the house with a good spirit.”
Unfortunately for Lamar, he’s the closest thing to a Kardashian that’s coming into the Celebrity Big Brother house. Other than that, the next closest thing is Shanna Moakler, the ex-wife of Travis Barker, AKA Kourtney Kardashian’s fiancé. Celebrity Big Brother is a show for Kardashian-adjacent celebrities, not actual Kardashians.

Although it’s not going to happen on Big Brother, Lamar’s desire to reconnect with Khloe is both interesting and persistent. Most people try to avoid their exes like the plague, but clearly, there’s something about Khloe that has Lamar hooked. Part of that long-lasting desire has to be the fact that she stuck by his side during his near-fatal overdose in 2015. She literally put their divorce on hold and publicly supported him while he recovered in the hospital.
Although Khloe refiled for divorce once Lamar was back on his feet, his support for her hasn’t wavered. Earlier this year, amid Khloe’s neverending drama with serial cheater Tristan Thompson, Lamar showed support for his embattled ex and expressed a desire to reconnect. He wrote on social media, “I truly wish nothing but the best for her and I’m hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends she is a good person and deserves the world.”
