And who said only Kimmy knows how to organize closets? Back in the day, before Khloe Kardashian was busy boasting millions in the bank and assistants of her own, the reality-star was actually working, well, for a different one. Bible.

Are you shocked as we were? That’s right, you already know about Kim’s pre-fame endeavors as Paris Hilton’s employee, but what about KoKo’s? Lucky for us, the star just bared all about her days under Nicole Richie’s payroll…

“I was Nicole Richie’s assistant, and you were Jonathan Cheban’s,” Kardashian told Simon Huck on the Emergency Contact podcast. But don’t get too excited just yet. As Khloe put it, Nicole “just needed some help.”

How’d she land the gig? “I went to school with her,” the 39-year-old star explained. “She was one of my best friends growing up, and we were just really, really close.” Obviously, though, everything changed the minute Nicole touched down in Altus, Arkansas…

“Towards the end [of ‘Simple Life’], Nicole just needed some help, and I just needed a job,” she explained. Safe to say, we’ve kept up with Khloe and her sisters through just about everything. Perhaps that’s why she’s “devastated” about leaving our screens next year.

“It’s devastating for all of us,” the reality star revealed of KUWTK’s final season. “It’s hard because I’m not good with change.” Nonetheless, after 15 eventful years on-air, the reality star can admit, “that doesn’t mean I don’t need a break… I know it’s good.”

But while KoKo might be coming to terms with her soon-to-be departure, let’s be real, we’re still in denial about the whole thing. I mean, what are we supposed to do with our Sunday nights, now?

Well, in the wise words of Khloe herself, “we’re on this journey with her;” Which means, that while, yes, we’ll be saying goodbye to Calabassas real soon, our favorite sisters aren’t going anywhere, just yet.

I’d keep up if I were you.
