The Kardashian’s. What are they actually famous for?

Apart from Robert Kardashian being OJ Simpson’s attorney, the rest of The Kardashian clan aren’t actually famous for anything except for being known as socialite royalty. Basically the same reason Paris Hilton is famous; for falling out of nightclubs drunk, shopping too much with their trust fund or having a sex tape leaked onto the internet (Kim’s fault). They some how have got a reality show from Kim’s sex tape and are somewhat famous just for that fact. The Kardashian family was very close to O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson. The Simpson trial caused conflict between Kris and Robert. Kardashian was on O.J.’s defense team, while Nicole had been Jenner’s best friend.

Who are they?

Kris Jenner 

Kris, the matriarch, was married to the late Robert Kardashian, best known for being a defense lawyer during the O.J. Simpson murder trial, and had three daughters and one son with him before they divorced in 1990. She later married athlete Bruce Jenner, and together they have two daughters. She is also known for being a  socialiteand businesswoman as she manages all of her family members. She and Bruce Jenner married on April 21, 1991. Bruce Jenner had four children from two previous marriages: Burt, Casey, Brody, and Brandon. Kris and Bruce have two daughters, Kendall Nicole (b. November 3, 1995) and Kylie Kristen (b. August 10, 1997). On December 14, 2009, Jenner became a grandmother when Kourtney and Scott Disick had a child, Mason Dash Disick.

Bruce Jenner

Bruce was a decathlon champion in the 1976 Summer Olympics. He married Kris in 1991 and has four other children from two previous marriages: Burt Jenner, Casey Jenner, Brandon Jenner, and The Hills cast member Brody Jenner.

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney is an American businesswoman, socialite, model, actress and reality television personality. She is the oldest of Jenner’s children. Kourtney first became known to reality television audiences on the 2005 series, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, on which she earned money for charity. She then became a cast member on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which depicts the lives of her extended family. She and her sister Khloé starred in their own spinoff reality show, Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, the first season of which documented their opening of the Miami D-A-S-H location in 2009. In January 2011, Kourtney and Kim Take New York premiered, which documents her and sister Kim opening their third D-A-S-H store in New York.

Kardashian and her boyfriend Scott Disick have a son, Mason Dash Disick, born December 14, 2009. On November 30, 2011, Kardashian announced she and Disick were expecting their second child.

Kim Kardashian

Kim is an American socialite, television personality, model, actress and businesswoman or best known for their leaked sex tape in February 2007 that she made with singer Ray J in 2003 which subsequently resulted in a court awarding her $5 million. Kardashian has been involved in the production of several lines of clothing and fragrances. In 2010, she was the highest earning reality star, with estimated earnings of $6 million.In August 2011, Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries in a widely publicized ceremony. She filed for divorce 72 days later which has gained her some not so great publicity from around the world. Several news outlets have surmised that Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries was merely a publicity stunt to promote the Kardashian family’s brand and their subsequent television ventures. Her former publicist has also claimed that her short-lived wedding was indeed staged and a ploy to generate money. Kardashian has since filed suit against him, saying his claims were untrue.  A widely circulated petition asking to remove all Kardashian related programing off the air has been followed since their split. This wasn’t her first marriage. Kim was in fact married before. Kim married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and divorced in 2004.

In December 2007, Kardashian posed nude for Playboy. Kim is mostly known for her regular appearances in gossip magazines showing off those amazing curves and also for her love of fur coats. In 2010 animal rights organization PETA criticized Kardashian for repeatedly wearing fur coats, and named her as one of the five worst people or organizations of 2010 when it came to animal welfare.

Khloe Kardashian

She is an American businesswoman, television personality, radio host, socialite, and model. On September 27, 2009, Kardashian married Dallas Mavericks, then Los Angeles Lakers, forward Lamar Odom. Last week RadarOnline reported that Robert Kardashian‘s ex-wives Jan Ashley and Ellen Pierson had come forward in an exclusive interview stating that he had revealed to each of them that he was not Khloe’s biological father. Khloe’s mother, Kris Jenner admitted in her new book Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian that she had an affair during her marriage to Robert Kardashian.

Khloe Kardashian has called the claims “disgusting”. She wrote: “The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this! Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low. YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are).”

Rob Kardashian

is an American television personality. He is best known for appearing on his family’s reality television shows, such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Khloé & Lamar. Kardashian competed and placed second on the thirteenth season of Dancing with the Stars. His professional partner was Cheryl Burke.

Kylie Jenner

Kendall Jenner

She is an American model and television personality, who is featured on the E! reality TV showKeeping Up with the Kardashians along with the rest of her family.  Kendall has modeled for the Sherri Hill dress line and is often seen in People’s magazine with her sister Kylie in the ‘Beautiful People’ article series. She is mostly known for her modelling, most recently venturing into the world of runway modelling where she modeled during the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for the 2012 Spring/Summer collection of Sherri Hill.

It seems the family’s popularity has brought mixed opinions from people all of the world. As much as I think they’re beautiful, none of them actually have any real talent. Releasing sex tapes and stripping for Playboy isn’t a talent to be proud of. Nothing to wave your arms in the air for or do an Irish jig over. According to a report released by the New York Post yesterday claims the ‘stars’ are ‘no longer sought-after celebrities.’ Apparently failed ratings, lost contracts and a decline in magazines wanting to publicize their every move is hitting their pockets pretty darn hard. It all seems to follow the swift demise of Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries last year. The family already rake in $65million per year from various merchandise, clothes, modelling and their reality deals too. This probably won’t be the biggest cut back to their pockets but no doubt mamma Kris will think of something else to flaunt to make more money for the attention-seeking family.
