After dropping a juicy and opinionated memoir that made even Wendy Williams take note, Lamar Odom has been recruited to become a motivational speaker, and he's learning to forgive himself.

"Doing reality TV and being married to Khloe, besides having children and besides me doing this motivational speaking that I'm going to start doing, that was the most memorable part and the best part of my adulthood," he told TMZ. "So, there's nothing I regret about that. And, hopefully, me going to public speaking can even bring me closer to the Kardashians and help me rebuild that bridge."

He said that the speaking is therapeutic for him and that including his children in the motivational speaking work has been a positive step in their healing. "This is a great way for me to make up the time I lost with them and help them get better as well," he said.

As for building that Kardashian bridge, it sounds like he's taking baby steps.

"I mean, I wouldn't call it amends," he admitted Entertainment Tonight in May. "I've spoken to her recently, if you call that amends." He added that he doesn't "have much of a relationship now" with the family, but there's a lot he'd love to tell Khloe.

"I love you and thank you for being there for me when I couldn't walk or talk," he said he'd like to tell her. "You know, when you marry someone after knowing them 30 days, I don't think that love will go away. You know what I'm saying? A piece of paper that says we're not together no more, that love will never go away."
