FANS were shocked by a resurfaced clip of Kim Kardashian getting IGNORED by a fan in lieu of her then-more famous BFF.
In the 2006 footage, the superstar was pushed aside, quite literally, by someone who wanted a picture with only Paris Hilton.

Back in 2006, Paris boasted a bit more fame than her then-bestie and protégé Kim as evidenced by what may be a culturally significant moment in hindsight.
While strutting down a Los Angeles street with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Paris was swarmed by photographers, exclaiming “We love you Paris!” and asking: “Are you going to do your first [music] tour in LA?”
The Simple Life star had just released her pop song Stars Are Blind, and casually responded her first stop was “London.”
A fan then approached the party posse and asked: “Can I get a picture with you?”
They proceeded to turn a ‘Blind’ eye to the smiling Keeping Up With The Kardashians megastar-to-be, posing with just Paris.
Fans flooded the comments section of the resurfaced YouTube clip with shock – and appreciation of a bygone era and relationship dynamic that, much like cell phones of the time, would flip.
‘THAT GIRL JUST STOOD IN FRONT OF KIM’
“Wow it’s crazy that Kim and Kourtney are in this, they look like two random [sic] girls lol,” one user commented last week. “No one was paying attention to them.”
Another wrote: “That girl just stood in front of Kim to take a picture with Paris.”
A third chimed in on the Kim-cident: “This so so so embarrassing.”
While a fourth wrote, “How the tables have turned.”
A fifth user summarized: “Just proves that You should never underestimate anybody.”
While a sixth expressed in all caps: “THAT ONE PARIS FAN THO BLOCKING KIM OFF TO TAKE A PIC HAD ME DYING.” They added, “SHE PROBABLY WISHES KIM WAS IN THE PIC NOW LMAO.”
Another element to appreciate is that the event the group was attending was the T-Mobile Sidekick 3 Debut Party.

KIM & PARIS EVOLVE
Times have certainly changed, but Kim, 41, and Paris, 40, are still close – even if, as one fan commented, the tables have turned.
In November, Kim made an appearance at Paris’ wedding to husband Carter Reum, also 40.
The SKIMS creator reportedly arrived at the venue, which was held at Paris’ late grandfather’s $61.5M Bel-Air estate.
Though boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28, wasn’t in attendence, Kim dropped a major hint at the event.
Following the extravagant ceremony Kim walked into the room where Paris was taking pictures with her new husband, Carter Reum.
Immediately, a smiling Kim begged of her childhood friend: “I need a favor… are you going to throw me your bouquet? Just look at me.”
In weddings, it has long been the tradition that whoever catches the bouquet at the reception will be the next one to tie-the-knot.
That being said, Kim and Pete are taking it slow with sweet, budget-friendly dates – and a trip to the Bahamas.
After about seven years of marriage, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye West, 44, back in February 2021.
The former couple share four children: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
