Kim Kardashian first rose to fame in October of 2007 when her family starred in the E! TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She got her first acting break in Beyond the Break, and then starred in Disaster Movie. She also participated in the 13th season of Dancing with the Stars. Kim co-owns a boutique called D-A-S-H with her sisters Kourtney and Khloé. In 2007, she posed nude for Playboy. Kim models for Travis Barker’s Famous Stars and Straps, Quick Trim weight loss, Balenciaga shoes, Carl’s Jr. fast food, Sugar Factory lollipops, and Perfect Skin skincare products, to name a few. Kim released her own, self-titled perfume in February 2010. She is also the co-founder and chief fashion stylist for ShoeDazzle. Kim has also released a workout DVD series, Fit In Your Jeans By Friday.
Kim Kadashian is alternately described as a socialite, reality TV celebrity, debutante, and entrepreneur or sometimes called a celebutante (a debutante who is a celebrity). Whatever she is called, Kim is well known and undeniably beautiful. Although she has many television credits and movie appearances to her name she may be best known for her naughty tape with her boyfriend Ray J.
Kim Kardashian was born in Los Angeles on October 21, 1980 to defense attorney Robert Kardashian who is perhaps best known for his defense of OJ Simpson. Robert Kardashian was of Armenian descent and Kim Kardashian describes her childhood as filled with Armenian holidays, foods and stories. Kim’s mother is Kris Jenner nee Houghton. She has two sisters and one brother, Kourtney, Kloe, and Robert as well as a host of stepbrothers and sisters, Burton, Brandon, Brody and Casey Jenner and two half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
While her parents were affluent they also believed in the work ethic and Kim Kardashian was on her own financially at the age of 18. This very possibly contributed to her entrepreneurial career since her family was determined their children would grow up to become independent and self-sustaining individuals.
