Stylist Paul Wharton, who appears on ITVbe's Totally Unbelievable this week, teases: “I went on a date with Kim Kardashian. And I know what you’re thinking, but a gentleman never tells!”
However the chatty newcomer to London – who has sleepovers with bestie Whoopi Goldberg and downed tequila while partying with Oprah Winfrey – eventually shares his story during an exclusive chat with OK!
“It was when Keeping Up With The Kardashians had just started,” admits the 43 year-old, known for presenting and starring in MTV and Bravo shows in the States, and hosting Fox TV’s Emmy-nominated series Home For The Holidays.
Now he's preparing for his UK debut on ITVBe’s celebrity show, Totally Unbelievable.

He tells OK!: “A friend who owns a popular club in Washington DC said to me, 'I need you to be the date of Kim Kardashian.' I was surprised, because although she wasn’t huge, she was the hot new thing in town.
“My friend told me Kim was hosting a big night and had asked him to sort her out with a date. Kim and I had so much fun that night we went out again the next night – we hung out together a lot.
“She’s fantastic. She didn’t drink in those days, but I see now on KUWTK she’s testing out a few cocktails. I kept saying, 'Come on, Kim, I can fix you up with whatever drink you want', and she’d say, 'No, no, I don’t want a drink.” She’s very quiet and she needs to feel secure. She stuck to me like glue the whole night.'

And Paul reckons it takes a special occasion for Kim to hit the booze.
“She’s not been a drinker for a long time. She said she couldn’t handle it and didn’t like the way it made her feel. But I saw her drinking at her 40th birthday party.”
It was a different story when Paul met Oprah Winfrey, at a ball to celebrate Barack Obama becoming president.
He said: “I wasn’t a huge fan of tequila, but when I met Oprah, she loved it, so we started drinking it together and I haven’t stopped yet!”
Now Paul has set up home in Chelsea, and is hoping to get in with the local celebrities, saying: “I want the complete London experience and to make a cameo on my favourite reality show, Made In Chelsea.”
