Many were stunned by the revelation that Kim Kardashian is studying to become an attorney. But it makes a certain kind of sense.
In fact, her father was a famous attorney who worked on one of the world's most infamous criminal cases: the O.J. Simpson trial.
Now, Kim has divulged that she found her father's secret library of O.J. evidence as a teen ... and poured through the forensics.
Speaking in the May issue of Vogue, Kim Kardashian reflects upon what she remembers of the O.J. Simpson trial.
Kim was a young teenager at the time and acutely aware of the controversial trial that consumed the attention of a nation.
And she also knew the role that her father played in it.
"On the weekends," Kim divulges. "They used our home as an office."
She says that her father, Robert Kardashian, would work there "with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro."
Those are the two biggest names on the infamous "Dream Team" that helped an alleged double-murderer evade justice.
"My dad had a library," Kim recalls.
She then details a unique and secret feature of the room that helped him as an attorney.
"And," Kim reveals. "When you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room."
That is a neat feature -- but more importantly, a useful tool if you're working on the trial of the century and fear that someone may snoop.
Kim notes that her father made good use of the hidden closet, stocking it "with all of his O.J. evidence books."
Kim knew about the secret chamber, and reveals that her teenage curiosity drove her to investigate the closely guarded secrets.
"On weekends," Kim shares. "I would always snoop and look through" the evidence books.
She says that one aspect of the case in particular really fascinated her.
"I was really nosy about the forensics," Kim admits.
Forensics are circumstantial evidence, and played a central role in the O.J. Simpson trial.
it makes a lot of sense that having a famous attorney as a father might inspire one of four children to study the law.
Considering how closely linked the entire family was to the O.J. Simpson trial, that would have made a tremendous impression upon Kim.
But there's more to Kim's interest in the law than "daddy issues" or formative experiences from her adolescence.
She has also taken up political activisim in recent years, even braving the Trump-occupied Oval Office to successfully get a grandmother out of prison.
Whatever you may think of Kim or her family, she's changing lives.
A lot about DNA has yet to be fully understood, but sufficie it to say that legal training is not hereditary.
Kim will have to seriously work over the next few years if she intends to meet her goal of taking and passing the Bar exam in 2022.
She has four children and an extensive career as a reality star and a businesswoman.
But she's also, and we say this as a compliment, a little nuts.
Like Kris and, to some degree, Khloe, Kim feels extremely driven to constantly do things and to have a packed schedule.
She also has the resources to make sure that her children want for nothing while she applies herself to her studies.
Here's our question: what is Kim's endgame for this?
She could become an attorney but, at the moment, she can do more good by hiring a team of attorneys to do her bidding on someone's behalf.
Part of this may just be a desire to remind the world that she's actually smart.
(She really, truly is fiercely intelligent -- there is no doubt in my mind that she can pass the Bar)
But is it possible that Kim is considering a future political career?
Studying the law may just be a stepping stone to passing laws ... and Kim may ultimately pursue even higher office.
She wouldn't be our first reality star President, but she could be the first who's smart and arguably not evil.
