Kim Kardashian Reveals Why She Addressed Her Sex Tape in First Episode of 'KUWTK'

“I do think that, obviously, as producers, I’m sure they loved it. And loved [us] wanting to talk about the elephant in the room. And I probably wouldn’t have, unless it was for the show,” Kim shared. “Sometimes I feel like, ‘OK, I know I should probably deal and get this over with. Someone’s gonna ask me, so I might as well just go ahead and do it.’”

In the first episode of KUWTK back in 2007, Kourtney Kardashian asks Kim why she decided to make the sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J, and Kim calmly responds, “Because I was horny and I felt like it.”

“In a way, filming has helped us deal with things, instead of sweeping them under the rug,” Kim added. “At the end of the day, I was always open and honest and wanted to share whatever I was going through. I wasn’t gonna hold back.”

Also in the interview, KUWTK executive producer Farnaz Farjam also talked about why they included the sex tape conversation in the first episode.

“I remember Kim being conflicted about it, because she hated everything that was going on around that tape,” Farnaz said. “We all talked about, ‘We just have to own all the controversy around this family’ and jumped in with both feet in the first episode. Then, the audience can get to know them at a much deeper level than what’s been tabloid headlines.”

Eliot Goldberg, who is the senior vice president of production and development at Ryan Seacrest Productions, added that it was “brilliant” for Kim talk about the tape right away.

“They knew they had to deal with the sex tape,” he said. “It was really brilliant that if they dealt with it right at the top, and put it to bed, the world, and them, could move on.”
