For an ordinary person, embarrassing memories can be brushed under the carpet within a few awkward encounters. However, for a celebrity, the paparazzi are always hunting, and such moments may never be relinquished.
According to People, GQ shared a video on Tuesday where Kim Kardashian went undercover online to clear up rumors for an “Actually Me” segment on their YouTube channel. Amidst a sea of questions, one person questioned her on a clip of her wakeboarding, “Did you find your earring while you [were] at it?”
This decades-old question instigated the famous one-liner from Kourtney Kardashian in an episode of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ which goes like “Kim there are people that are dying.” which is a reply to the exclamation Kim made, “I lost my diamond earrings.” To this, the SKIMS founder replied, “Ugh, this gets so old,” adding, “Any time I’m in the water, people will ask me if I found my diamond earring in the ocean,” she continued saying, “I don’t know if I showed this on our show, but Kylie [Jenner] found the earring. So, she dove into the ocean, put on goggles, found it, and then she went back and found the back of it. That’s how clear the water is in Bora Bora, so, guys, the earring has been found.”
Before moving on to the next question in the interview, she clarified, “It was found in 2010. If anyone’s going to Bora Bora searching for gold and diamonds, [it’s] not there.”
The episode of KUWTK that was being referred to through this question was from Season 11 of the show, where Kim was in a relationship with Kris Humphries, an NBA star. As the entire family basks in the glory of Bora Bora, Humphries playfully tosses Kim into the water, where, after a few seconds, her countenance changes, and she exclaims, “My earring’s gone!” adding, “F—! Oh my God, I’m gonna cry. My diamond earring!”
Soon after the dramatic episode, they showed Kendall and Kyle bringing the earrings back to her. Cementing the jewelry curse on Kim was the 2016 Paris armed robbery that made Kim swear not to possess expensive jewelry at home. She admitted in an episode of The Kardashians, she made a confession, “After I was robbed in Paris, I haven’t bought jewelry,” adding, “I haven’t really been about wearing jewelry, because when it was taken from me — I didn’t know I was ready for that experience of what that meant but I was — I was ready to give it up.”
