Kim K. To Oprah: My Sex Tape Jump-Started My Career

Before the world began keeping up with her family’s antics, before the fragrance lines and before the magazine covers, Kim Kardashian was famous for the infamous. But now, five years since her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J was released, the reality star says she understands the impact it’s had on her career.

“Would you be where you are had there not been a sex tape?”Oprah Winfrey asked Kardashian on Sunday’s Oprah’s Next Chapter.

“You know, I think that’s how I was definitely introduced to the world,” Kardashian, 31, said of the sex tape, which was the focus of a lawsuit until she settled with Vivid Entertainment to distribute it. “It was a negative way, so I felt like I really had to work 10 times harder to get people to see the real me.”


When it was released, she said, she turned to her mom, panicked. It was a “really bad day” mom Kris Jenner recalls. “No mother ever wants to hear something like that,” Jenner said earlier in the interview. “I could tell she was in a lot of pain.” Still, she told her daughter, “We can get through anything.”

Today, Kim says she embraces the sex tape that jump-started her fame, as well as her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, as parts of her life: ”I have to live with the choices I have made,” she said. “And I can’t dwell on it.”

John Travolta Case: Third Man Sues For Sexual Harassment

Two male masseuses have each filed lawsuits against the married actor John Travolta and now a former Royal Caribbean cruise ship employee has joined in on the party.

Similarly to the other stories, Chilean Fabian Zanzi claims that Travolta stripped down naked and asked for a massage. That was just foreplay for the sex he expected to have after allegedly offering to pay the cruise ship manager $12,000. Here are the creepy details:

“[He] said he had something on his neck. I thought it was a fuzz. As I approached, he took off his white coat and was naked. He hugged me and asked me to do a massage.”


The weird part is that this guy wasn’t a masseuse. He was simply in charge of taking care of VIP guests. Much like the masseuse in Atlanta, Zanzi says he immediately reported the incident to his supervisors. They didn’t believe him though and actually confined him to his cabin before eventually firing him.

Again, we have no idea if ANY of these claims are valid and his lawyer has already presented evidence that contradicts the first masseuse’s story. However, it’s hard to ignore THREE lawsuits, not to mention a lot of gossip we’ve been hearing for years…
