Lamar Odom’s hookers are back in business — and his $75,000 brothel bill has been paid in full.
Monica Monroe and Ryder Cherry returned to their regular posts at Nevada’s infamous Love Ranch shortly after Thanksgiving, owner Dennis Hof confirmed to the Daily News.
The surprise homecoming came after the women went into hiding in the immediate aftermath of Odom’s collapse.
Hof previously told The News he was worried the women might have been hiding details about their time partying with the NBA star and husband of Khloe Kardashian. But they later joined a full staff meeting and answered all of his questions, he said.
“I’m now satisfied they didn’t do anything wrong,” Hof told The News on Wednesday.
“I talked to them. I’m confident they weren’t involved with any drugs with Lamar.”
“Maybe they didn’t respond so well when they bailed out,” he added. “But they were confused and scared. They had a lot of people beating down their doors and had never dealt with anything like that before. We were all tested.”
Hof said the crisis could have turned out even worse.
“The fortunate thing is that everyone did the right thing when it mattered,” he said. “They got the paramedics there. If it wasn’t for their fast response, Lamar might be dead.”
Hof also confirmed that Odom’s $75,000 American Express bill for his brothel bender has been paid in full after weeks of wrangling.
“American Express originally canceled the transaction and gave us five different excuses,” Hof said. “We went back and forth. Then all of a sudden the money was in our account. It just showed up.”
He said Odom’s management company had questions about the charges early on but never responded to his follow-up emails.
“I assume Khloe or Lamar told American Express to fix this, but I don’t know,” he said.
Odom, 36, was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch on Oct. 13 with blood and fluid leaking from his nose. He was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital and spent several days in a coma.
He was later transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with Kardashian by his side — and reportedly is undergoing intensive therapy to regain his ability to walk and talk.

Cops in Nevada interviewed Love Ranch staff after the 911 call and applied for an emergency search warrant to test Odom’s blood. They said the prostitutes heard Odom snorting something in his bathroom and there was reason to believe he was using cocaine.
The court-ordered blood test came back dirty. The Nye County District Attorney now is considering a possible criminal case against the former NBA star.
