Kim Kardashian is a famous American TV personality. Aside from being a popular actress, she’s also made remarkable achievements in business, modeling, and for being a socialite. Kim also stars alongside her family in the reality TV show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
However, some say that her key to fame is a bit unorthodox as she became popular after her scandalous video with Ray J, who was her boyfriend at that time, scattered to the public. It even went viral.
But that didn’t stop her from her tracks as she still managed to dive into business and launch her own clothing line. Kim even has her own smartphone apps now.
Childhood, Early Life, and Family
Kim Kardashian was born on Oct. 21, 1980, in L.A., California. Though she mainly looks white, she considers herself to be of mixed descent and ethnicity. She is an American citizen, but her roots come from different countries, mainly, Armenian, Dutch, English, Scottish, and Irish.
This might be one of the reasons why she has one good looking face and a stunning body. Some even say that she looks very unique and rare. Well, her mixed ancestry is the one to blame for that.
Kim’s real full name is Kimberly Noel Kardashian. She’s born to Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner, together with her other siblings Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob. Kourtney is Kim’s elder sibling, while Khloe is her younger sister.
Meanwhile, Rob, his little brother, is the youngest of the three siblings.
However, things didn’t go well for her parents as they eventually separated and got divorced. Fortunately, her mother remarried, and in the process, the Kardashian siblings gained new stepbrothers.
They are Brandon, Burton, and Brody. They’ve also gained a new stepsister Casey, and two half-sisters, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner.
Surprisingly, despite all the glitz and glamor she had since her childhood, Kim says that she had a very average one. In an interview, she even says that they went to church every Sunday and led a simple and happy life together with her family.
Interestingly, this is very farfetched if one was to compare it to their current situation. Furthermore, it was expected of the Kardashians to live independently once they reach 18-years-old.
Unfortunately, life took a toll on Kim as his father died of cancer in 2003. Her family then managed the company left by their father, but later sold it due to a variety of reasons. It was a tough time for them, but they still managed to cope with the challenges.
This also helped Kim to be focused on making a name for herself as she dived deeper into showbiz.
Kim Kardashian, knowing that she comes from a well-to-do and wealthy family, is undeniably educated to the highest level. She went to secondary school in Marymount High School. Many see Kim as liberated, but surprisingly, she considers herself to be religious.
She is also a devout Roman Catholic, having gone to Catholic all-girls school, including her high school. Kim also worked hard because she also worked for the company of his father while in high school.
Kim is indeed successful in her own right. She’s got what it takes to be a superstar, model, actress, and glamorous TV personality. However, this wasn’t the reason why she became famous.
In fact, her infamous scandalous video with her former boyfriend Ray J. was, what many believe, to be the reason why she skyrocketed to fame. Ray J. is a famous R&B singer who was seen with Kim Kardashian in bed in 2007.
The video eventually made it into the internet, and soon became viral. Vivid Entertainment, a huge adult film company, soon then got hold of the video. Kardashian was surprised and left furious knowing that her video went viral and that an adult film company got hold of it.
Because of this, she filed a lawsuit against the company. It was also reported that Vivid had paid $1 million for the legal rights to acquire the video. They even went to great lengths to promote it with the title, “Kim Kardashian Superstar.”
Fortunately, it turned out to her favor as she eventually got and received $5 million in settlement and damages three months after the case hearings.
Kim can’t do anything with the video as it is literally everywhere. And so, she decided to just snob it and don’t care about it. She knew that her video is still getting flack, but she decided to instead make her way into show business.
Kim then appeared in an E! Network reality TV series entitled, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Many agree that this is one of the reasons why she amassed millions of new fans around the globe.
The show was produced by Ryan Seacrest, who is also best known for being the host of the famous TV singing contest show, “American Idol.” The show chronicles the daily lives of the Kardashians, specifically the Kardashian kids, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Robert Jr.
It later on expanded its scope as it also documented the daily lives of their stepfather Bruce Jenner and mother Kris Jenner. The two kids of Bruce and Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were also the subject of some of the show’s episodes.
One of the most notable episodes of the show was during the first season. This was when Kim discussed with her family an offer she got from Playboy to appear nude on a magazine cover for the company.
Surprisingly, her family supported it and she soon did it. It was for the Dec. 2007 issue of the magazine.
Furthermore, Kardashian also launched her own shopping service which focused on selling shoes. The service was called ShoeDazzle. What makes this no extraordinary company is that some of the best stylists in Hollywood are the ones that designed the shoes.
Kim Kardashian also launched a perfume line together with Khloe and Kourtney. It is a Sears fashion collection and a few Kardashian-branded products for tanning.
By 2011, Kim appeared in the reality series entitled, “Khloe and Lamar.” She appeared in three episodes for the reality show. Then there came another series entitled, “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.” Kim appeared in the show’s 18 episodes.
