Kim Kardashian has a Google Alert on herself set up ... or does she?

Some people are guilty of Googling themselves, but this goes beyond that: reality TV star Kim Kardashian has set up a Google Alert on herself.

If you don't know what that means, you can go to news.google.com, search for something, and at the bottom of the page you'll see a link to create an email alert for that subject --- a Google Alert. You can modify how often you get the alert, if it's just for news or other things, etc. etc.

In this case, Kim Kardashian was seen on Tuesday Kim in Santa Monica, with her BlackBerry (ugh) as she received a Google Alert on herself.

Aside from the fact that she still using an ancient BlackBerry, its funny that Kim would do this for herself, as last September she scoffed at sister Kourtney, who does the same thing.

Durng an interview with xoJane last September, after Kourtney got a Google Alert on her phone, Kim laughed and said, "You have your own Google alerts? We have that on record: Kourtney has her own Google Alerts and checks them."

Perhaps Kim later decided it wasn't such a bad idea after all.

Notably, however, the message shown in the original photo does have one key point: the RE: string in front of the "Google Alert: Kim Kardashian" text. That means it's not an actual Alert at all, but something someone sent to her. It's possible it's sent on from her publicist, but you'd expect to see FWD:, not RE:.

That said, we wouldn't be surprised if she DID have a Google Alert set up on herself.
