We may have thought that filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians was exactly what Kim Kardashian didn鈥檛 need after her terrifying Paris robbery,聽seeing as she聽took time off and stepped back from the spotlight聽(a move which聽resulted in an unsure future for the family鈥檚 famous series). But now, as pics of the crime scene have just been released, Kim鈥檚 mom, Kris Jenner, is claiming that the show actually had another totally surprising effect on the reality star.

While聽Kim was initially reluctant to jump back into her super public life, her mother, Kris Jenner, insists that filming their series actually became part of Kim鈥檚 healing process. 鈥淲e started filming and what was coming out of that was very therapeutic for her, I think. To just explain to us and walk us through,鈥 she told Ellen in a recent appearance.

Case in point? Back in January, we were shown a short 30-second clip promoting the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In it, Kim opened up about the robbery for the first time, reliving the incident while talking with her sisters, Khlo茅 and Kourtney.

While it may have been hard for fans to watch, it was even harder for Kris. 鈥淚 was watching it and I was bawling 鈥 bawling when I saw it,鈥 she聽said. 鈥淎nd I just saw some of it. I couldn鈥檛 even watch the whole thing it was so upsetting. It was such an upsetting time and something so awful happened to somebody you love so much. And it鈥檚 just like 鈥 ugh 鈥 it chokes me up every time to think about it.鈥

She added, 鈥淣o one can get through the first few minutes without getting hysterical. Like, I get choked up just thinking about it and talking about it. But it鈥檚 remarkable to listen to her tell the story and she does that鈥 moment by moment.鈥

We鈥檒l be able to witness the process for ourselves when Keeping Up With the Kardashians returns on Sunday, March 5 to E!
