Kim Kardashian Says She "Probably Would Not" Have Been As Successful Without The Sex Tape

Does Kim think “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” would have been successful if her 2002 sex tape had not leaked? She commented, “Looking back, probably not. I think that everything happens for a reason, and I really try to, like, live like that. And every time there's, like, something and a crazy scandal that feels like you can't breathe and how are you going to get through this, it always is a lesson. Even if it's a private lesson, or even if it's just something that we didn't know we had to go through.”

I mean, duh, right? Kim Kardashian is a monster, but she's not forgetting her roots. She knows that the sex tape being leaked sucked, but she also knows it put her on the map. She wishes it didn't happen, but it did, and it catapulted her to stardom. It really is all about how you spin it. Things happen all the time, and if you own up to them, acknowledge and move on, it makes the scandal less interesting. Yea, she has a sex tape, so what? Kim fucks. Big whoop. She's hot, she was young, and her boyfriend wanted to film her while having sex. Who among us doesn't have a little skeleton like this in their closet. We know how Kim gives a blowjob, but now she could buy an island if she wants. I'd say its a fair trade.
