“When you are best friends with the most famous girl in the world, it's like being best friends with Marilyn Monroe,” he told New You magazine of his pal. “People are infatuated and obsessed."

Their friendship runs so deep that, of course, like a good bestie does, Cheban defended Kardashian, who gets flack for her fame. “Everyone wants to be like Kim even if they aren’t gorgeous,” he said. “This also drives me nuts about people saying, ‘Why is she famous?’ If you have a TV show for 20 seasons in 180 countries, you would be famous as well, but you do not.”

But Kim is not the only thing in his life! “People are like, oh, you just hang out with Kim all day. No, I’m working on 39 businesses. It drives me nuts,” he said. “I’ve been working since I was a kid. I had my own company when I was 23 years old, worked with Diddy and J. Lo and Mariah and did a million events with them.”

“Did you ever watch Guy Fieri’s show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives? This is the opposite,” he said. “People want to know where Beyoncé sits at a hot restaurant. It’s not about billion dollar houses; no one cares about that. They want to know where the hot stuff is and nobody knows better than me. I live it!”
