Watch: Kim Kardashian's Very First E! Interview: E! News Rewind

A throwback for the ages.

The 20th and final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premieres this coming Thursday, March 18, and we're celebrating by throwing it all the way back to the early '00s before the E! series ever aired. That's right, we dug up Kim Kardashian's first-ever E! News interview!

E!'s Will Marfuggi spoke to Kim back in 2006—just a year before the iconic reality series first premiered—and as he explains in the above clip, the two discussed, among other things, Kim's latest business venture: "I go to my clients' homes—Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Brandy—and I help them clean out their closets."

"And we take whatever they don't want and I sell it for them on eBay," Kim added.

The reality TV star also opened up about working as a stylist for her "best friend" Brandy and joining the singer on her European tour. "I had to dress her and her dancers and I was like freaked out," she admitted.

What Life Was Like Before Keeping Up With the Kardashians

At the time, Kim's family store DASH hadn't even opened yet, as she teased in the clip.

"I'm opening up a store. A women's clothing store in Calabasas called DASH with my two sisters for our last name Kardashian," she revealed. "It's in Calabasas right next to the store my sister and my mom have called Smooch, it's a kids' clothing store."

After showing tidbits from the 14-year-old interview, Will recalled one particular 36-hour period in which he interviewed Kim three times.

"She saw me in the back of a press line and she introduced me to Reggie [Bush], who was her boyfriend then," Will explained. "She was like, 'Reggie, this is Will. This is who I've been spending the last day and a half with.'"
