The reality star said that upon embarking on this public journey -- which included starring in her own show -- she took the advice of her step-daughter Kim Kardashian
. "Kimberly says, 'If you do go out, you've got to rock it, baby!' You cannot let [the paparazzi] get that picture," Caitlyn exclaimed
. "They'll take a picture of you with no makeup on, lousy outfit -- and they'll use it forever. You'll never get rid of it. Kim's very good at that stuff."
