Socialite and actress Kim
Kardashian (Dancing with the Stars, Disaster Movie,
Drop Dead Diva) is the daughter of late O.J. Simpson attorney Robert
Kardashian. Kim's mother, Kris, is now married to former Olympic gold
medalist Bruce Jenner. Kim, her mother, stepfather Bruce, and five
siblings star on the E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Bruce's
son from a previous marriage, Brody Jenner, appeared regularly on
the MTV reality show The Hills, and also starred on the
short-lived reality show The Princes of Malibu. Brody's stepfather
is famous record producer David Foster.
On September 27, 2009,
sister Khloe Kardashian made headlines when she married L.A.
Laker Lamar Odom after dating only one month. The two began
filming their made-in-reality TV-heaven marriage for Khloe and Lamar,
which first aired in 2011. That same year, Kim married NBA player Kris
Humphries in a lavish, multi-million dollar ceremony that
was-naturally-televised for a two-part TV special. The marriage lasted all of
72 days, leaving Kim to fend off accusations that the entire relationship had
been a sham perpetuated for the money and publicity, although the heated
divorce battle suggests that it was very real indeed. The quickie marriage and
subsequent demise were chronicled on 2011's Kim and Kourtney Take New
Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe
launched a clothing and accessories line in 2011, the Kardashian Kollection,
which is sold at Sears department stores nationwide. Their half-sisters, Kendall
Jenner and Kylie Jenner, are aspiring models, who appeared with
their manager mom, Kris, on an episode of America's Next Top Model in
2012. Brother Rob Kardashian appeared on the 2012 season
of Dancing with the Stars, placing second, and announced he is preparing to
launch his own line of dress socks.
In the summer of 2012, Kim took to real acting, guest-starring on several episodes of the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva, playing a juice bar employee with dating advice.
