Why is Kim Kardashian famous? Well, even she's not ready to have that conversation with her daughter North West.
While chatting with Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show on Thursday (August 9), the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star revealed that she was caught off guard when her five-year-old daughter asked her about her claim to fame.
"[She said] 'Mom, why are you famous?'" Kim recalled. "And I was like, Oh... okay, I'm gonna have to explain this. And I'm like, 'We have a TV show. We have a TV show.' And she was like 'Oh, okay.' And that was the first time when she was like 'Oh.'"
As Kardashian fans know, Kim gained fame after her infamous sex tape with Ray J "leaked." So, it makes sense why the mom-of-three isn't ready to tell her five-year-old daughter the full truth just yet.
The tape launched Kim's career as a reality TV star. Since its release over a decade ago, Kim and her family have become household names, dominating nearly every avenue of business and entertainment.
While on Big Boy's Neighborhood radio show, Kim also spoke about her husband, Kanye West. Kim revealed that when she was married to Kris Humphries, she tried to spare Ye's feelings by hiding her wedding ring when she spoke to him.
“I f**ked up and went a different direction and realized that I f**ked up pretty soon,” the 37-year-old reality star said, referring to her 72-day marriage to Kris. “And then what was crazy was — I’ve never told this story before. So I’m presenting an award … and Kanye was nominated, so I see him backstage. We end up both at the SoHo House and he sat at my table.”
“I had my big ring on because I was married, so I’m, like, talking with my ring and I talk with my hands a lot, so I’m talking and I just see him looking at my ring and his face would just, like, get heartbroken,” Kim continued. “So I sat on my hand for the rest of the dinner and spoke with one hand.”
