In the very first episode of the show, Kim directly addressed the sex tape. When her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, asked her why she'd made the sex tape, Kim's reply was simple.
She explained, "Because I was horny and I felt like it," which is surely the best reason for making a sex tape, ever.
14 years later, Kim recently spoke to the Los Angeles Times about why she chose to address the sex tape so early on in the show. She said, "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."
She elaborated on her decision to talking about it head on on, adding, "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.'"
Kim continued, "In a way, filming has helped us deal with things, instead of sweeping them under the rug. 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."
You do you, Kim - it certainly made the show a success.
