KIM Kardashian admitted she was once “super desperate” to be famous.
The 40-year-old revealed she would seek out paparazzi to take her photos during the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reunion.
While speaking to host Andy Cohen at what it’s like to be famous during Thursday’s reunion, Kim admitted that she craved being in the spotlight in the early years of her fame.
While she never called the paparazzi to take photos of her, she said: “I knew exactly where they were, so if you wanted to be seen- anytime I got hair and makeup for the show, there was no way I was going home and washing it of.”
Kim continued: “I would stop off at Robertson. I would stop off at The Ivy and would pick up some something to go- even if it was just some bread to go. Anything! And empty bag!
“I would run in and pretend like I left something. ‘Hi, did I leave my glasses here?’”
While Kim no longer feels that way about being captured by the paparazzi anymore, she admitted that it’s funny to think about.
The KUWTK star said: “I think I can talk about it because it’s so funny.
“I think people need to be more honest about those moments in life when you’re just super desperate and want that.”
In the early years of her fame, Kim was known for hitting the town and regularly appeared in paparazzi shots published in tabloids.
The reality star frequently hung out with famous party girls, including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
While Kim may have been known around town for being spotted with her famous friends, it was her sex tape with Ray J that skyrocketed her to fame.
During the reunion, Kim admitted that she wished she could “erase” the tape from her past.
Early on in Thursday’s reunion, Andy asked Kim how she thought the tape impacted the popularity of KUWTK.
Kim responded: “I think that everything happens for a reason and I really try to live like that.
“And every time that there’s something and like a crazy scandal that feels like you can 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 what we had to go through.”
When asked if she thought about having the tell her kids about the sex tape, Kim said the tough conversation hasn’t happened yet.
The mother of four said: “Luckily I think that so many years have gone on and so many things have happened positivity that it really erases that.
“That is something that I have to live with for the rest of my life, but it’s something that’s being held over my head.”
She added: “I try not to have any regrets, but it’s probably the one thing I wish didn’t exist.
“If I could erase any of the stupid things that I’ve done in life, that’s probably it.
“And it’s more so from being a mom.”
