Kimberly Noel “Kim” Kardashian is widely known for a sex tape with her former boyfriend Ray J and her E! reality series which she shares with her family, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She is also the daughter of late attorney Robert Kardashian.
Kim was running around with Paris Hilton at pre-school living the upscale life when the fame started. During her early years her father, defense attorney Robert Kardashian, defended the former Buffalo Bills running back O.J. Simpson following the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and stole the media spotlight.
Kardashian spent her teen years dealing with her parents divorce and her mother marrying Olympian Bruce Jenner in 1991.
In Playboy Kim stated “I used to say my prayers before bed and pray I would stop developing,” and now “I always laugh when it says on the Internet that I have fake boobs or butt implants or injected lips, because it’s so not true.”
At 20 years old Kim would marry music producer Damon Thomas but that would lead to a messy divorce in 2004 where Thomas would call her “a compulsive shopper!” according to People.
In 2003 her father would pass at 59, just eight weeks after he was diagnosed with cancer.
In 2004, Brandy after appearing on a worst dressed list, hired Kardashian as a personal assistant and met her brother Ray J and that is where the story takes off.
While rumors of a sex tape involving Kim and ex-boyfriend, Ray J, swirl, Kim denies any such tape exists. “There is no amount of money that could ever convince me to release any tape, even if I had one,” she tells Complex. But the tape eventually surfaces on the Internet, and Kardashian sues Vivid Entertainment to suppress its distribution, saying “it would humiliate me and ruin my family.” By April, Kardashian settles with Vivid to distribute the tape.
American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest must have watched the video a few times and saw the potential that a hottie like Kardashian has and produced Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The show documents her career and family life, with sisters Kourtney and Khloe, momager Kris, and step dad Bruce Jenner. The first season features Kim debating whether or not to pose for Playboy.
Kardashian does appear on the front cover of Playboy and is only partially nude in the released photos, wearing fur and beads to cover most of her private parts.
Despite appearing on the cover of dozens of tabloid magazines, her hit reality show, fitness DVD and skin care and fragrance lines, she still struggles for credibility as a celebrity with no real defining talent.
While the talent is in question the looks are not…
