New year, new outlook. After a difficult few months, Khloe Kardashian is ready to take 2016 by storm.
The reality star sat down with Access Hollywood's Liz Hernandez for a revealing chat about what's in store for her family and her career, as she prepares to launch her first talk show and continue supporting loved ones tackling struggles of their own.
"I need some fun, I need some cocktails," she said of her upcoming cable venture, "Kocktails with Khloe," set to debut later this month. "So we're combining the two and it's going to be super fun. I'm excited."
Although the series was originally slated for a December premiere, Khloe said she was "super happy" it got pushed back and allowed her extra time to focus on personal matters – including her brother Rob's recent health scare, which resulted in a diabetes diagnosis.
"He's taking it seriously," she said of Rob's condition. "I think everything happens for a reason, so if that was going to, you know, wake him up a little … then that's what it was there for."
The 31-year-old said she initially thought Rob was being "dramatic" and giving a "cry for attention" when his symptoms began.
"You don't know. You think all these things," she said.
However, she continued, it soon became clear that Rob's situation was urgent.
"It was really scary," she said. "We were at home and he just kept having trouble breathing."
Now, Khloe said she's encouraging Rob to join her in pursuing a regular fitness routine. For now, she said, the two "go on little hikes" around their neighborhood.
As for her sister Kourtney's former partner, Scott Disick, Khloe said things are looking healthier for him as well.
"He's doing great," she said of the 32-year-old, who completed a month-long treatment program for substance abuse in late 2015. "I'm really proud of him."
Although Scott has made notable progress, Khloe said, the speculation regarding his and Kourtney's relationship isn't what either of them are concentrating on at the moment.
"You know, I never say never especially in our family," she said of the former couple's potential reconciliation. "And things change so quickly. But I think their focus right now is about Scott's well-being and also the kids."
Adding, "I don't think anyone is ruling anything out, but I don't think that's even a priority right now."
Khloe went on to describe how Scott will always be an important part of the Kardashian-Jenner brood.
"We're all still very close. I think it's great just for him to have all of us as a support system. We all live within like four minutes of each other. ... You need that family dynamic. And you know Scott doesn't have that, and so he has it with us."
Perhaps Khloe's biggest obstacle in 2015 was the news of her estranged husband Lamar Odom's overdose in October, after which he began a lengthy hospital stay and recovery program.
Khloe has spent a great deal of time at Lamar's bedside throughout his ordeal, and gave Access a positive update on his latest prognosis.
"His spirit is high. [He] laughs a lot and has a good energy and that's what's important," she said of the retired NBA superstar. "I just want all these boys to be just happy from the inside out."
Moving forward, Khloe's making sure to keep her own happiness in the forefront as she embarks upon new endeavors personally and professionally.
"I'm trying to be really positive in 2016. … I think I'm doing pretty well. I'm a really good multitasker," she said. "Even with work and everything getting back into like a work routine, that's also an adjustment but like I said I'm a huge planner. I schedule things, my 'Khlo-CD' is what I call it, like I just have to take one day at a time."
"Kocktails With Khloe" premieres Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 PM ET/PT on FYI.
