Kim Kardashian interview
By E.C. Gladstone

EG: I think people assume that you’re a trust fund baby…

KK: I was cut off when I was 18, I started working when I was 15…of course [people] assuime the opposite. My dad, his parents were well off, but they came from Armenia, and they had to work in the meat packing business, My dad and his brother went to college at USC and got a great education, my dad went to law school in San Diego, and they worked. I grew up in this life of privelege, and I knew it, but I also knew if I wanted to keep it up, I had to do it myself, because my parents aren’t [going to]. We had no credit cards—my dad would never give us a credit card! That was my birthday present, that I could use my dad’s credit card. I’ve always known what it’s like to work, I’ve had a job since I was 15. Before my dad gave us our cars, he made us sign contracts—we had to wash it once a week, if we hit, we paid for it—and I bumped into someone in traffic, my dad was out of town, a week after I got my car, so I got a job working in a clothing store to pay for my first car accident.

EG: How has the experience of being on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ been?

KK: I thought that I wouldn’t care as much, and now I’m taking it so personally its way more intense than I thought it would be. We rehearse four hours a day.

EG: Who’s idea was it to dance to Baby Got Back?

KK: It was the producers. They said what do you think and I said ‘hey I would’ve chosen it if I knew it was an option.’ Hey, if I cant make fun of myself, who can?

EG: How is your toe?

KK: My toe is fine, it obviously was blown out of proportion. It was a huge cut, it was really scary knowing that I had to put these shoes on. It was tough, but it’s healed and I’m not going to let it stop me. I was right in Vegas for Pussycat Dolls and then I went straight to New York, it happened in New York.

EG: How did you like performing with the Pussycat Dolls in Vegas?

KK: It was great. Robin Antin is just a genius. It was nerve wracking though, I’d never performed. They definitely helped me. They inspire me, they’re so hot and sexy. I told [Robin] I need to come out of the shell.

EG: What made you think you could do it?

KK: I didn’t even think I could do it. But the opportunity came up, and I wanted to do it just to challenge myself.

EG: You weren’t afraid of the chance you could look like an idiot?

KK: No, you cant be afraid of that. You just have to be confident, and work hard.

EG: Have you always been confident or become more so?

KK: This is definitely helping me change, because I was not a confident person. I never danced before…

EG: Are you a shy person by nature?

KK: I am extremely shy, and I think that people probably don’t get that. I’ve obviously done photo shoots, even Playboy… For some reason, at photo shoots I become a different person. I love them. But when it comes to personality, that I have to bring forward, I’m so used to being surrounded by these bold personalities–there’s so many in my family—that I’m the observer that just sits there. Now the fact that I’m doing Dancing By The Stars, all by myself, and I have to perform, I’m even nervous in rehearsals. … I hope that I can bring out my inner J-Lo.
