Kim Kardashian stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres show on Thursday for a v. emotional interview to talk about her Paris robbery, which she says has made her a better person, and TBH, we *actually* believe it. It was the first time she’s publicly opened up about the horrifying event (outside of KUWTK) and, believe it or not, the interview had us choking back tears.

“I’m such a different person,” the reality star—who was wearing no (we repeat, NO) jewellery at all—told Ellen. “It was probably no secret, you see it on the show when I was being flashy, like I was definitely materialistic before,” she admitted. But ever since the robbery, she says those materialistic things that shaped her life before don’t matter anymore. “I’m so happy that my kids get this me and that this is who I’m raising my kids [as], ’cause I just don’t care about that stuff anymore. I really don’t,” she told Ellen.

The interview left Kim (and us) holding back tears several times but the part that got us real emotional was when Ellen asked her to walk us through what she was thinking while it was all going down. “I knew that was it for me. I said a prayer, like, ‘I know I’m going to heaven. I hope my kids are OK, and my husband.’ I don’t want to cry, you’re making me cry,” she told Ellen. And while Kim says the robbery was a good seven or eight minutes of pure torture, she’s actually grateful because it could have been way worse. “I don’t want to sound like I’m not grateful. I’m out, I’m home, I’m safe, I’m such a better person—it’s OK.”

Before they wrapped up the interview they obvi had to chat about Caitlyn Jenner’s new memoir, The Secrets of My Life, for a quick sec (if you haven’t read it yet, no worries we’ve got the highlight reel). Kim said the entire thing is just “so hurtful,” adding that she’s heartbroken for Kris and believes a lot of things Caitlyn said about their marriage are untrue.
