Do You Remember When Kim Kardashian Was Just Paris Hilton’s Sidekick?

Long before the sex tape, reality show, and global empire, Kim Kardashian was simply known as Paris Hilton‘s BFF. And employee, depending on who you’re talking to.

This weekend, the two socialites took us back in time by posting a photo while partying in Ibiza and remembering the good ol’ days. “Reminiscing about the 1st time we went to Ibiza in 2006! @parishilton it was so good to see you & catch up!! Loves it lol,” Kim wrote on Instagram, which was appropriately reposted by Paris on her own account. Yes, a lot can change over the course of almost 10 years, but looking back at a time when we first heard Kim K’s name will really make you think about exactly how much is different now (besides her face). When Kim first hit the Hollywood scene, she worked for Paris (we repeat: Kim worked for Paris) as a personal assistant/closet organizer, dated Nick Cannon, and was more of a party girl than you ever would have expected. It’s hard to believe that in those days, Paris had a go-to gal on her hip other than Nicole Richie. She may not have gotten a gig on The Simple Life, but Kim sure did (temporarily) fill the job of sidekick.

Hop into the gallery above to remember the time before Kim Kardashian was actually Kim Kardashian.

Now that Kim’s come into her own, can she count on Paris to tune in weekly for new episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians? Eh, not quite.
