What’s the buzz? Kourtney Kardashian revealed that her once-fearless sister Kim Kardashian used to play with and enjoy the company of bees in a candid interview published on Friday, April 15.
The reality star, 36, who currently serves as the face of Manuka Doctor Honey, spoke with Elle.com, touting the benefits of the bee byproduct-based beauty line. Asked if she is scared of the venomous insects, Kourtney ended up sharing a hilarious tidbit about her younger sibling Kim, 35.
“No, I am [scared of bees]! Although thankfully, I'm not allergic,” she began, before opening up about Kim’s peculiar childhood habit. “But you know who's not? Kim. When Kim was little, she used to hold bees and play with them.”
“Finally, she got stung and she stopped,” Kourt added. “But they were like her friends.”
While Kim learned the hard way that befriending bugs (especially ones with stingers!) may not be the best idea, Kourtney insisted to the fashion site that her sis still has a love for wildlife, despite a recent rumor that the Selfish author once set an animal ablaze.
“The first thing my mind goes to is, there was some random rumor floating around that Kim lit a skunk on fire,” the mom of three told the outlet of the odd gossip that plagues their famous family. “I know. It's absurd. It's the strangest thing I've ever heard. Obviously Kim does not set living things on fire! And anything I've heard about myself, it just pales in comparison to that. It's the weirdest thing I've ever heard.”
