What Kim Kardashian Prayed For During Her Paris Robbery Will Break You


As a Kardashian fan, I was so nervous about Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians because I knew Kim was going to tell her Paris robbery story. I wasn't sure I could handle how heartbreaking it was bound to be. But, her emotional retelling of fearing for her life just goes to show that you don't have to be a Kim fan to feel empathy for what she went through. As a human being, her harrowing tale will break your heart. But, there was one quote from Kim Kardashian's robbery story about Kourtney that will shake you more than anything.

"I just prayed that Kourtney’s gonna have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed."

Even in what she thought were her final moments, as she sat on the bed of her hotel room with a gun to her head, she was thinking of her family. Kim talked about how she mentally prepared herself to be raped and that she knew how things like this went. She didn't think she would survive the robbery, though she pleaded with the concierge to translate to the French robbers that she had babies at home and to please let her live. It's horrifying that she had to go through the robbery at all, let alone literally thinking she was going to die and being handcuffed while a gun was held to her head. And, in what she thought would be her final moments, she prayed that Kourtney would recover from what she would see if they did shoot Kim.

It just goes to show what an amazing, selfless person Kim is that what could have been her last thought wasn't of herself, but of her family. She prayed that her sister, who was also in Paris that night, would be able to move on after what she believed would be her death.

People say a lot of terrible things about the Kardashians, and Kim in particular. As we saw on KUWTK on Sunday, some people insanely and falsely claimed that she faked the whole robbery for attention and for the show. There is seemingly no end to the terrible things some people will say and think about Kim — but, at the end of the day, she's a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, and a human. And, she's someone, who, when she thought she was going to be shot, wished that her sister would lead a life unscarred by the events that transpired. That's as unselfish as you can possibly be, and that's why this quote needs to be seen by everyone, Kardashian fan or not. Kim is a human being — a kind, good one at that — and she deserves our respect.
