It’s Been 10 Years Since Paris Hilton Brought Kim Kardashian Into Our Lives
It’s troublesome to recollect what the popular culture panorama seemed like earlier than the Kardashians started to dominate our cultural consciousness.
But it was actually only a decade in the past — 10 years in the past to the day, to be particular — that Kim Kardashian posed on purple carpet together with her very well-known pal Paris Hilton for the primary time.
The timing was good. Hilton had been down a sidekick for almost a yr, having confirmed to reporters that she and “Simple Life” co-star Nicole Richie have been not BFFs. Meanwhile, Hilton and Kardashian grew up collectively and just lately reconnected after the heiress reached out to her previous pal, who was recognized on the time as “the Queen of the Closet Scene,” to arrange her monstrous closet.
After spending the previous few months posing solo or with youthful sister Nicky, on April 12, 2006, Hilton introduced Kardashian alongside together with her to the third Annual Lakers Casino Night in Santa Monica, unknowingly setting the stage for every part that was to return.
Ten years in the past, Kardashian was simply Paris Hilton’s pal Kim, which is strictly how she’s described by Getty within the photograph above. The subsequent few months have been essential to Kardashian’s profession as she turned Hilton’s new BFF and knew higher than to show down an invitation for an evening out.
“We’d go anyplace and in all places simply to be seen,” Kardashian informed Rolling Stone in July 2015.”We knew precisely the place to go, the place to be seen, the right way to have one thing written about you. All you needed to do is go to this restaurant, or this get together, speak about no matter you need to speak about, and it might be within the paper the subsequent day.”
They say everybody has to start out someplace. The seeds of Kim Kardashian’s superstar have been planted with a photograph of her with Paris Hilton, which, on reflection, Hilton in all probability regrets.
Being Hilton’s BFF is a full-time job — one Kardashian held for about eight months. By early 2007, she did not want Hilton anymore. What’s extra, America did not want Hilton anymore. Just months after “The Simple Life” was canceled, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” premiered.
Kardashian’s ascent to fame did not sit nicely with Hilton, who later resorted to call-calling and crude remarks that signaled a feud was brewing between the 2 former besties, not that Kardashian was notably involved.
Today, the feud is over, although we might by no means name them associates — simply two ladies who know the worth of a properly-timed #tbt.
