Khloe Kardashian was Photoshopped into her family Christmas card.

The 28-year-old reality starlet was unable to attend the photoshoot for the annual Kardashian-Jenner holiday card, and so she and husband Lamar Odom, 33, had to be added in later with the help of some computer wizardry.

Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, Khloe said: "We pretend that we're always together. The powers of cameras and Photoshop."

The 'X Factor' USA host's younger half-sister Kendall Jenner, 17, had to be digitally added to the picture, too, as she was sick, as did Kourtney Kardashian's partner, Scott Disick, 29.

Khloe's husband Lamar - who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team - also missed last year's dazzling 3D Christmas card shoot because he had a game.

She said: "That one we were all in but Lamar was Photoshopped because he had a game. It's hard with his NBA schedule. Damn men with a career!"

When they are able to coordinate schedules, however, Khloe says Christmas is always a big family affair, though it can get crowded in the Kardashian household.

She told Ellen: "Every Christmas, we're always together. Step-brothers, sisters, everything. All 10 kids and then everyone's extended girlfriend, boyfriend, this, that..."

Khloe added as the Kardashian siblings have gotten older and had more serious relationships, the cast of characters at Christmas largely remains the same - though she is surprised Scott - who has children Mason, two, and four-month-old Penelope with Khloe - is still a part of the family.

She said: "Now we're sticking together. Who knew, I'm surprised Scott's still around, but he's here."
