It’s been ten years since The Hills first appeared on our screens and while we’ve always fancied our chances in a game of Hills trivia, today we learned something rather unexpected – that Kim Kardashian West could have been in the show!
Feel free to take a minute, we understand.
Last night a celebratory episode of the hit reality show aired on MTV and possibly the most shocking aspect of The Hills: That Was Then, This Is Now was the revelation that before Kim Kardashian became the biggest reality star of all time, she was filmed hanging in the Hills at Heidi Montag’s party.
According to The Daily Mail, the footage was filmed just one year before Kim’s infamous sex tape made her notorious worldwide and, in what now feels like some kind of awkward parallel universe, the old clips show Kim receiving a tour of Heidi’s gaff.
Bizarrely during the guided walk-through, Kim asks Heidi what her aquarium is, to which Heidi replies: “These are our jellyfish. We’re the only people in America to have jellyfish.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was then filmed telling her stepbrother Brody Jenner – who went on to become a regular Hills fixture – that she was going to Vegas to celebrate Memorial Day.
In a decision which could have altered reality TV history, Kim’s scenes were cut from the show and despite still being connected to Heidi and co Kim never again appeared in The Hills.
What a world we live in…
