Crisis and tragedy can really help put things in perspective. Like when you're in the midst of getting a divorce but then your soon-to-be ex-husband lands in the hospital after a four-day bender at a Nevada brothel and you think maybe you two can go the distance after all. At least, that's what I imagine is going through Khloe Kardashian's mind this week, as according to  TMZ she and Lamar Odom asked a judge to dismiss their divorce case — and the judge totally agreed.

Kardashian's lawyer reportedly appeared in court Wednesday with a document signed by both parties asking for the filing to be withdrawn. While Odom continues to make an impressive recovery following his four-day coma, their two-year-old divorce battle "is now dead," a source says. I see what they did there.

And hey, it's nice to hear Odom has progressed to "able to sign important legal documents" condition so fast. That's some impressive recovery time.
