Kim Kardashian explains why she talked about sex tape on KUWTK
“I probably wouldn’t have done it, unless it was for the show.”
If there’s one thing the world knew about Kim Kardashian in 2007, it’s that she made a sex tape.
Instead, she wasted no time and approached him head-on in the very first episode of the show when her sister Kourtney, while helping her prepare for an interview, asks her why she made the sex tape.
“Because I was excited and wanted to,” Kim replied simply.
And now Kim reveals why she chose to bring up the subject so early in the series.
“I think obviously as producers I’m sure they loved it. [us] want to talk about the elephant in the room. And I probably wouldn’t have, unless it was for the show, “Kim told the Los Angeles Times.
She continued, “Sometimes I feel like, ‘OK, I know I should probably take care of it and be done with it. Someone is going to ask me, so I might as well go and do it.
Although KUWTK Executive producer Farnaz Farjam said Kim was “in conflict” and “hated everything” about the tape, they decided to “jump two feet in the first episode” so audiences could get past him.
Kim added that she believed the shoot helped her family “face things” instead of “sweep them under the rug”.
“At the end of the day, I was always open and honest and wanted to share everything I was going through. I wasn’t going to hold back,” Kim concluded.
Obviously, that’s exactly what Kim and the rest of the family did for the rest of the series, letting fans experience the very intimate moments of their lives.
