It might be hard to imagine given her near constant presence, but there was a time when Kim was considered not worthy for TV. Ah, how times change.
According to former The Hills star Spencer Pratt, Kim used to come over and ever-so-casually re-organise Heidi Montag's closet in hope that she'd appear on the show. Unfortunately her cunning tactics didn't work and Kimmy was edited out.
He told Complex magazine how the now queen of reality TV would call up his wife Heidi and then pop over when the cameras were rolling.
He said: "Kim was edited out of The Hills episodes organising Heidi's closet." It's not quite as bizarre as it sounds, back in the day Kim worked as a stylist.
Spencer then admitted he finds Kim's rise to fame a bit confusing, saying: "Now it's like, 'Kim Kardashian breaks the internet with her booty.' Like, what the f***? That's real life for us."
It turns out Spencer himself was originally approached to mastermind Kim's journey from wannabe to reality star, he revealed momager Kris Jenner offered him the role, saying: "She can deny it if she wants, but she comes up to me and is like, 'Spencer, I want you to manage Kim.'"
And he says he wasn't tempted. "I literally started laughing. What is this lady talking about?"
Wonder if he regrets that decision at all?
