Kim Kardashian has been keeping a low profile since the Paris robbery; public appearances have been rare and she's all but disappeared from social media. It's not the Kim Kardashian the world is used to, and a new interview with 60 Minutes that aired Sunday night highlights just how much her traumatizing experience in Paris has changed the reality TV super star.
In a conversation with correspondent Bill Whitaker that was filmed a week before the robbery, Kim spoke candidly about her career, one that has benefited heavily from social media over-sharing, which Kim is now apparently rejecting.
"It is a talent to have a brand that's really successful off of getting people to like you for being you," she responded after Whitaker asked what her talent is. "So I have to think that involves some type of talent, you know?"
"I totally attribute my career to social media," she added, emphasizing that her career couldn't "exist in this way" without it.
But, Kim points out, the reality of being famous isn't all it's cracked up to be.
"There are pitfalls: lack of privacy, loss of privacy," she admitted. "That's not for everyone. For me, I can handle it."

The words almost feel like a terrible omen, don't they? Since being robbed at gunpoint, Kim has stayed out of the spotlight, and her family has said that she's "not doing that well."
"I think it's just a wake-up call to make a lot of life adjustments," Khloe said during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month. "This is a really serious matter and for Kim, I think it's really personal as to when - that emotional terror - you could move on from that. I think it's all a wake-up call for all of us, but definitely just to make sure that our sister's okay."
