Before she became a famous reality-TV star, mother-of-one, and owner of the Good American clothing line, Khloe Kardashian was an assistant to Nicole Richie. During an appearance on the Emergency Contact podcast she met co-host Simon Huck.
“I was Nicole Richie’s assistant and you were Jonathan Cheban’s assistant and we met five faces ago,” Kardashian stated, referencing cosmetic procedures.
The 36-year-old designer noted that her former gig didn’t last long.
“I went to school with her,” Khloé explained. “She was one of my best friends growing up and we were just really, really close and then when she started doing Simple Life — I think it was after Simple Life — she just needed some help and I just needed a job.”
The mother-of-one was no stranger to reality shows, and after some time, she and her family were offered a chance to have their reality-TV show (Keeping Up With The Kardashians), but with no expectations for success.
“We were told we were a show filler and to not get comfortable. There wasn’t any pressure because it was like, they don’t think we’re gonna last, so let’s have fun with it,” Khloé said.
After 13 years, nine seasons, and multiple life-changing events, the show that put the Kardashian family on the map is coming to an end.
“It’s devastating for all of us,” Khloé told Huck and co-host Melissa Gray Washington.
“The day it happened, Malika Haqq (Khloe’s best friend) and I were talking throughout the day, because you don’t have to be a main character — you’re still a part of this journey from day one, even if you were in the first episode or not. You have been you, Simon, you Malika, you guys have been our family. You’re on this journey with us and just for any chapter to end, that doesn’t mean everything is ending for good. That just means there’s room for another chapter to open.”
“It’s sad, but we’ve been doing this for 15 years. We get two weeks off a year. It’s exhausting. We’re all in a different place in our lives and some of us need a nap,” Khloé continued.
