Did you ever think Transparent star Gaby Hoffman would be caught dead hanging with Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie?! (Uh, not me)
After Kim Kardashian posted this pic (above) of the trio, HuffPost Live asked Gaby to EXPLAIN THIS TEENAGE DUCKFACE PIC PLZ. And, she did:
“We weren’t friends,” she said of her famous-in-the-future posse. “This is a totally strange, bizarre, anomalous moment.”
Hoffmann explained that as a kid, she moved for two years from New York to Los Angeles, where she attended a “crazy private school” and lived “an alternate reality life” in the suburbs.
“In those two years, I happened to be in school with these girls — at least Nicole. I don’t remember that Kim Kardashian actually went to our school,” Hoffmann said. “But Nicole Richie invited me to her birthday party, and it was at Michael Jackson’s Neverland! That’s where this picture was taken.”
The King of Pop, who was Richie’s godfather, wasn’t in attendance, but Hoffmann found an equally exciting point of interest at the ranch.
“I did get to meet A.J. and Bubbles, the chimps. I actually didn’t care that much that Michael wasn’t there because I got to meet the chimps,” she said.
Hoffmann said she doesn’t hang around with Richie and Kardashian anymore, and she’s actually perplexed to this day about why she was included in Richie’s birthday extravaganza.
“I wasn’t even really friends with Nicole. I don’t know why she invited me to this party, and I don’t really even remember ever talking to Kim Kardashian,” she said. “But yes, this picture — look at us. Oh my god, my eyebrows were so plucked.”

True, her eyebrows WERE really plucked. And how much does a young Kim Kardashian look like Kendall Jenner? And who are those other two girls (the one on the bottom kinda looks like a young Sporty Spice?!) I think I’m having a stroke. I love Hollywood stories like this. Love. Them.
