Kim was in full glam at a photo shoot when her attorney, Shawn Holley, called, in a sneak peek released on Thursday of the emotional milestone. The two reveled in the good news, gushing, "We did it!" before Kim announced she couldn't get too emotional.
"You don't know?!" she shouted. Shawn replied, "No, she doesn't know! You're telling her the news!"
"Oh, my gosh. Alice, you're out," Kim said into the phone. Within seconds, Alice was shouting for joy. Sniffles and tears of joy were heard flowing.
As Kim's eyes began to well up, she looked up and blinked heavily to keep herself from crying. "I can't cry!" she whispered to herself and to the "KUWTK" camera person shooting her.
"I'm sorry, I thought you knew! Oh, my God," Kim said to Alice. "The news just broke. The president called me, and he told me that you are out. He signed the papers, it's been released to the press, everything."
In June of this year, President Donald Trump granted clemency to the first-time, nonviolent drug offender after she had been sentenced to life in federal prison without the possibility of parole.
News of Alice's release came just one week after Kim met with the president in the Oval Office to advocate for Alice. At the time, Kim's visit and plea for prison reform was met with staunch criticism from Twitter trolls and some of Hollywood's elite who thought the reality star had no way of making a change.
