Because Kim Kardashian wants to stay Kris’ favorite daughter, Kim saved talking about the traumatic details of her Paris apartment robbery for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Unfortunately, many people seemed to be busy on the night of Kim’s Very Special Episode. So she packed up her saddest face and hit up every publicist’s favorite daytime talk show, Ellen, and talked some more about being robbed at gunpoint.
Kim’s episode, which was taped before she left to sun her injection sites in Mexico, airs today. She got really emotional and self-reflective with Ellen DeGeneres while talking about her robbery. Kim says the experience has changed her and she believes that robbery was totally meant to happen in order to make her a better person.
“I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. And I don’t want to start crying, but like, I feel like that was so meant to happen to me. I’m such a different person. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things.”
One of the ways Kim is different, according to Kim, is that post-robbery Kim isn’t materialistic like pre-robbery Kim was.
“It was probably no secret. You see it on the show, us being flashy – I was definitely materialistic before. Not that there’s anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things. But I’m so happy that my kids get this me. And that this is who I’m raising my kids. I just don’t care about that stuff anymore.”
Kim continued to tell Ellen pretty much what we already know about the robbery; that the thieves had been planning for a while, and that she’s got way more security than before. She also got teary again while admitting to Ellen that she was mentally preparing for Heaven during the ordeal. Kim adds that she’s grateful it ended the way it did, because it could have been “way worse.”
Kim says she’s fine with other people showing off on social media, but that’s just not who she is. So instead of posting pictures of her expensive things, she’s posting pictures of herself taking pictures of her expensive things. Becoming less materialistic must be a gradual process.
