Khloé Kardashian On Being Nicole Richie’s Assistant: ‘She Needed Some Help and I Needed a Job’! Before skyrocketing to fame with the success of Keeping Up with Kardashians, Khloé Kardashian held a much more behind-the-scenes role: as Nicole Richie‘s assistant.
“I was Nicole Richie’s assistant and you were Jonathan Cheban’s assistant and we met five faces ago,” Khloé quipped, referencing cosmetic procedures.
Khloé, who appeared on Monday’s podcast — which features interview with celebrities and the people who have stood by them through all of life’s ups and downs — alongside best friend Malika Haqq, said that she didn’t work for Richie for “long.”
“I went to school with her,” Khloé explained. “She was one of my best friends growing up and we were just really, really close and then when she started doing Simple Life — I think it was after Simple Life — she just needed some help and I just needed a job.”
The Good American founder had always been familiar with reality shows, but said she never really thought about actually doing one herself until the idea came along. “Kourtney [Kardashian] did Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive prior … and Kim [Kardashian] was obsessed with The Real World, but I didn’t think about it, and I think that’s the beauty of it,” Khloé said of KUWTK.
She shared that she and her family had no expectations for the E! reality show and were shocked at how successful it turned out to be.
“We were told we were a show filler and to not get comfortable. There wasn’t any pressure because it was like, they don’t think we’re gonna last, so let’s have fun with it,” Khloé said.
She explained that life changed drastically for her and her family after season 3, when she and Kourtney, 41, filmed their spinoff, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami. “It was the first time we couldn’t really go a lot of places and it was more paparazzi and fans,” Khloé remembered.
