KIM Kardashian addressed her infamous sex tape with Ray J in a recent interview and credited Paris Hilton for helping make her famous.
The KKW Beauty mogul, joined by sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner, sat down with Robin Roberts for an exclusive interview.
Kim, 41, spoke openly about a variety of topics, from her love life, to her divorce from Kanye West, and even her sex tape with Ray J.
While she rarely speaks on the matter all these years later, she held nothing back in her interview with ABC.
The mom of four confessed: “I’ve been in this business for 20 years and being on a reality show has not opened up doors for me in the way people would assume.
“If anything, being on a reality show, and let along a reality show and a girl with a sex tape, I mean all the doors closed for me.”
More on Kim
Kim went on: “I was completely not respected.
“So I felt like I had to work extra hard to get a little credibility.”
The SKIMS founder’s rise to fame in spite of her otherwise damming circumstances was due, largely in part, to former boss and friend Paris Hilton.
Kim began spending more time with the heiress amid her admitted quest to become famous.

París’ publicity spread to Kim, hurling her into the public eye.
During her interview with ABC, Kim revealed her desire to be famous from a young age.
She admitted on the interview special: “I would have done anything to be famous.
“I’m so open and honest about the fact that I loved being famous. Some people are made for it better than others.”
Kim continued: “I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel like I could handle it, if I didn’t think I was made for it.”
During the same interview, Kim gave fans a glimpse inside her massive mansion.
Ella showed off her enormous glam room, which fans hadn’t gotten a look at before the interview aired.
Kim won the sprawling pad in her divorce from Kanye West.
She showcased her over-the-top glam room, which featured neutral-colored walls like the rest of the house, a lush seating area, and a full salon setup.
Along one of the walls was a mirror with marquee lights and salon chairs.
There was lighting overhead as well as what appeared to be lights built into the corners of the room.
Behind the salon chairs was a plush couch, complete with a matching ottoman.
Separating the two spaces was what looked to be a wooden piece of furniture just low enough to see into the glam area.
Kim sat down with host Robin one room over from her glam room.
She wore a black ensemble that featured a turtleneck and a full face of makeup for the interview.
LUCKY IN LOVE
Kim also chatted about Pete Davidson, as did her famous family members.
Kris, 66, said that the New York comic is “estupendo” y “a really nice guy.”
Khloe, Entretanto, said of the romance between Pete and her sister: “He just makes her laugh and she laughs all the time.”
Kim herself explained of their love: “quiero decir, I am a relationship kind of girl, con seguridad.
“I wouldn’t be with someone if I didn’t plan on spending a lot of my time with them.”
Ella continuó: “Obviamente, I wanna take my time, but I’m very happy and very content and it’s such a good feeling just to be at peace.”
Kim didn’t give any further details about the relationship between her and Pete.
