Stephanie Shepherd is striking out on her own.
The ex-assistant to Kim Kardashian — who parted ways with the reality star last November after more than four years of working together — just landed as the new face of bohemian jewelry line, 8 Other Reasons.
The raven-haired beauty stars in brand’s latest campaign for its Woman collection, which featured pieces all for $100.
The big gig comes months after it was revealed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians regular was let go from her new post as COO of Kardashian West Brands. As previously reported, the two broke off their working relationship because “it became clear that Stephanie just didn’t have the knowledge to take on a role like that.”
“The was a good assistant but when Stephanie wanted to transition into a larger role with Kim’s brand and businesses, it just didn’t work,” a source told People. “Kim made an executive decision to part ways.”
As seen on an episode of KUWTK, Kim was also uncomfortable with the idea of Stephanie becoming too close to her family. “Do you find it weird that you’re like ‘wifey’ with my assistant? she asked sister Kourtney Kardashian at the time. “I mean, don’t you think that’s like a little bit unprofessional?”
Though Kim, 37, is said to be no longer on speaking terms with Stephanie, the reality star did send her former employee a chocolate display with her Kimoji Heart perfume for Valentine’s Day. (To be fair, the mom-of-three also said she sent her nemesisBlac Chyna and Taylor Swift the same present — so who knows where they stand these days.)
