Dr. Phil seems to support Khloé Kardashian's decision to stay with her estranged husband Lamar Odom as he begins recovering from an intense overdose — but he wasn't afraid to dish out some advice for the reality TV starlet.
While at the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame Awards on Tuesday, the TV personality shared:
"I truly hope that he gets through this acute crisis right now. And I hope that everybody around him — friends and family — focus on that recovery right now."

Luckily, Lammy has had quite the support system show up for him after his health scare as his children and almost the entire Jenner/Kardashian clan visited him while he was fighting for his life at the Sunrise Hospital in Sin City.
"This is not a time to be judging how he got there or any of those circumstances. This is a time to be focused on getting a complete physical recovery, physiological recovery…. He'll take that momentum of getting through that acute crisis — take that momentum into every area of his life with that."
And it appears that KoKo is doing exactly that since she's vowed to stay by the NBA star's side as he begins his extensive rehabilitation process.
The 65-year-old relayed:
"I would think at this point, the message needs to be that 'You are loved… I'm behind you a 100 percent. Because the last thing in the world that someone, who is struggling at this point needs, is any kind of message of judgement or criticism."
Still, we can imagine that refraining from expressing their opinions may be hard for the KUWTK family — especially since they experienced the former LA Lakers player's struggle with addiction first hand.
Nonetheless, the famous psychologist advised Miz Kardashian to have the following conversation with her man:
"'Look, we're sorry you're in this situation. We love you. We're behind you and we want you to come back 100 percent. If things need to be talked about or discussed, there's plenty of time to do that. Now, let's get you healthy. Lets protect your life and get you as much recovery as we possibly can because you don't want residuals here. You don't want to stop adhering to the medical regimen one minute too soon. You want to make sure that just because you're up and having conversation doesn't mean that you're fully recovered. You got to do everything necessary to make sure that your brain is back online and that you're doing what you need to do physiologically.'"
Here's hoping this whole experience has been the wake up call Lamar's needed to get his life back on track.
