The KUWTK star is the focal point of the hit reality TV show’s latest season 17 promo clip released this weekend, in which KKW reveals to sis Khloé Kardashian that she’s headed into El Lay to shoot overnight for Paris Hilton‘s newest music video.

Though the schedule may be demanding — “God, I’m so tired, and I have to work all night” Kim says to open the clip — she opted to jump at the chance to do it without even a second thought… because she’ll do whatever she has to do to help old friend Paris!

As Kim tells Khlo-money in the clip, Paris’ early career help and advocacy on KKW’s behalf has not lost on the mom of four, even after all these years (below):

“I’d do anything [for Paris]. She literally gave me a career. And I totally acknowledge that. … And it’s important to me to be loyal to people.”

Awww! So great — and so much loyalty!!!

(By the way, you can see the clip in full right HERE.)

But Is Kim Right, Though??

It’s sort of ironic we’re even talking about this now, what with the new promo clip going up and everything, because we just yesterday posted a long look at all the KarJenner scandals to have come down across the fam’s sordid reality TV history.

Chief among those (besides O.J. Simpson, of course) it the Kim/Ray J sex tape… and while it’s true the sex tape arguably vaulted Kim well into the great public consciousness, Paris did give the future reality TV maven her start in the celeb world, when she hired Kim to clean out her closets, and things like that.

From humble beginnings, grew the world’s greatest superstar! Who ever could have known?!

What do y’all think about the Paris-Kim connection, y’all?? Kim’s right about Paris leading her down the path to where she eventually picked up a career in the celeb/entertainment space, isn’t she?! So crazy — Hollywood can feel like such a small town sometimes!!!

Sound OFF in the comments (below) with all of your thoughts and opinions on just how far Kim has come… and just how much she does (or doesn’t) owe to Paris Hilton for it!!!
