It’s Kim Kardashian‘s world—we’re just living in it.
The iconic businesswoman has given us a lot to thank for: an amazingly comprehensive video game, child deity North West, and the receipts that exposed Taylor Swift for the snake that she is. And, of course, lots of people were introduced to the lives of the Kardashians through E! Network’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
We have to give it to Kim K. She’s strategically crafty when it comes to her public life, orchestrating subversive moments, as when she posts naked selfies—or manages to be around yet not involved in conflict between boo Kanye West and Amber Rose. The internet typically obsesses over her latest antics, but the latest Kardashian meme comes from a recently revisited scene in one of the family’s old reality shows.
January 2011 was a very different time for Kim Kardashian; it would be a while before she became serious with Kanye, let alone have his child. On Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kim goes on a date while enjoying the single life. She explains in an on-camera interview that she’s dropping hints that she’s single. Producers then cut that into a scene of her on the date succinctly saying, “I’m single.”
