Kim Kardashian is a big name today. In fact, there is proof in her Instagram followers numbers (146 million, blimey!). But she has not forgotten who put her name on the map. It was her former best friend and socialite Paris Hilton. How many of you know that Kim actually came into the spotlight as the hotel heiress’ closet organiser. And subsequently, befriend her employer.
Kim Kardashian has not forgotten her first stepping stone on the fame train. She is thankful to Paris Hilton
So, Paris Hilton was the launchpad to Kardashian’s success. And the KKW cosmetics owner does not shy away from that. She, in fact, has nothing but gratitude for her former best friend. Indeed, she owes it to Hilton that she is one of the most famous women in the world today.
Keeping up with an old friend
A preview clip of the upcoming season (17th) of Keeping Up With The Kardashians dropped recently (the reality show will be premiered on 8 September at 9 pm on E!). Kim Kardashian says of Paris, “She literally gave me a career. And I totally acknowledge that.”
As Kim shot to fame, their friendship drifted apart. But she never forgets Paris Hilton. In the preview clip the dialogue starts when Kim Kardashian says, “God, I’m so tired. And I have to work all night.”
To this, Khloe Kardashian asks why she was working overnight. Well, this is why- “I am going to go and be in this music video with Paris for one of her new songs.”
Furthermore, Kim Kardashian explains, “I really would want to do anything for her. She literally gave me a career, and I totally acknowledge that.”
Subsequently, her sister, Khloe, felt proud of how selfless she is, “A lot of people, no matter how they got their success wouldn’t say ‘I got my career cause of Paris,’ they’d be like ‘Haha bitch, look who’s popping now.’”

The music video that is the center of this conversation was shot on 3 May 2019 just 3 days before the Met Gala. Indeed, Kim Kardashian had a lot on her plate then, thanks to her carved out wet look that she was planning for the red carpet (read all about it here). And not only that, she was expecting her fourth child (Psalm) anytime soon.
But all this did not stop Kim from being there for Paris Hilton. She came in two cameos for Hilton’s song “My Best Friend’s A**.’
