How crazy sauce is this story? Nine years ago, Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on E!, and Kim Kardashian became not only the biggest reality television star in history, but also ended up evolving into one of the biggest stars period. And she didn’t need Kanye‘s help getting there.
Rewind one year, and MTV had left Kim on the cutting room floor when she showed up to one of Heidi and Spencer’s parties on season one of The Hills!
If you’ve seen KUWTK, then you’re aware that Kim is half-sister to former The Hills star Brody Jenner, so it makes total sense for her to have been at the party. But apparently Kiki’s screen time wasn’t interesting enough for producers of The Hills, as her footage never made it to air.
Perhaps Kim’s appearance was boring, but being a catalyst to Heidi Montag‘s gaudy brag about jellyfish should have at least gotten Kim some air time. “What is this?” Kim asked Heidi as she pointed to the couple’s aquarium. “These are our jellyfish. We’re the only people in America to have jellyfish,” Heidi smugly replied.
How did MTV pass up that Speidi gold?!
