She "didn’t have the knowledge," source says

Kim Kardashian isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Just ask her former assistant Stephanie Shepherd.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has fired her right hand woman after more than four years of working together. Though Steph has been by the reality mom’s side through thick and thin — including the birth of Kim’s two children and her harrowing Paris robbery last year — the longtime confidant is now being left in the dust as the KKW Beauty founder continues to the expand her empire.

As one source puts it, “Kim gave her the chance but after a short period of time it became clear that Stephanie just didn’t have the knowledge to take on a role like that.”
