When it came to getting Lamar Odom to participate in a new reality show with wife Khloé Kardashian, it was no slam-dunk.

Just three days into filming Khloé and Lamar, Kardashian admits that her NBA star husband wanted out.

"He said, 'Can you tell your mom to get us out of this contract,' " Kardashian told Ellen DeGeneres during a taping of her talk show set to air Tuesday.

"I thought it was going to be easy," Odom said of filming their own new E! show. "It's really tough."





But his wife was resolute: "I go, 'Absolutely not,' " Kardashian said. "I go, 'Nope, that ship has sailed. I told you.' "

Kardashian, 26, also understood her husband's hesitation. "It's a lot. I mean, I knew from doing my family's show how intense and grueling and how much they are really in your face. I personally didn't want to do the show," Kardashian said. "I love taping. I just didn't want to put Lamar through that pressure, and Lamar was like, 'Let's do it. Everyone keeps asking. Let's do it.' "

Fortunately for fans, Odom is a team player. "Lamar is great and he loves the finished product," Kardashian said. "We have really expensive home videos."
