According to People magazine, attending the event is the first step in Kim’s slow reemergence back into public life.

“You don’t just get over a near-death experience like Paris. It’s going to take a lot of time,” a source close to Kim told People.

“She still thinks about it every day and it’s definitely a process…The time away from the spotlight has been good for her.”

“It’s given Kim time to reprioritise things in her life. She wants to spend the holidays with her family and then slowly ease her way back into the limelight.”
