If you can attempt to momentarily clear away the last nine years of pop culture from your brain and transport yourself back to 2007, you'll recall that back when Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered, it was Khloe who was generally considered the funny, friendly sister. But this was not always so, according to one Jersey Shore cast member.

In a sneak peek of tomorrow night's episode of Kocktails with Khloe, Snooki joined guests Kylie Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, and RuPaul, where she reminded her host how they first met.

"I still to this day don't know what happened," Khloe said, to which Snooki explained:

So Kim texted me and was like, "Oh, come over, it's fine!" And I was like, "Oh, okay, I'm gonna go to the Kardashians' house!" So I came over, and I was obsessed with you at the time. I was like, 'Oh Kim, you're cool but I really want to meet Khloe. So I came over and she brought me to you and she taps me on the shoulder and goes, "Khloe, look who's here!" And you looked at me up and down and — I swear to God, I'm not lying — you go "What the fuck is she doing here? Are you kidding me Kim?"

Anyway, cool of Snooki to even bother to do Khloe's TV show after having experienced the social equivalent of getting punched in the face. Watch the full clip below.
