The Kardashian family name has become famous for some events that have occurred in each of the family member’s lives. The TV star, Kimberley Noel Kardashian was born on October 21st 1980 at Los Angeles, California. She is known as a socialite, model, actress, business woman and television personality. She has one brother and two sisters. Her parents are Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. Robert has Armenian origins and Kris has Irish origins.

Kim’s father, Robert and American football player O.J. Simpson were friends. Robert was practicing law. Cocaine dealer William Wasz claimed that he sold coke to Robert Kardashian and O.J. Simpson. He also said that Kardashian and O.J. were involved in laundering, prostitution, pornography, sports betting and point shaving.

Kardashian is one of the stars of TV reality show series ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’. Kim Kardashian married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and divorced him in 2004. Her friendship with Paris Hilton has made her famous. Like her friend Paris, she was also involved in a sex tape scandal when some unknown sources shot her on camera when she and her boy friend Ray J were making love.

She appeared on the cover of Complex magazine in early 2007 and she co-owns a retail fashion store in California. She was involved with not less than 11 men in her life. Her step-father is Bruce Jenner who was a Gold medalist in the 1976 Olympic Games.

Kim Kardashian’s first acting role was in a TV series ‘Beyond the Dark’. In 2008 she had a role in the ‘Disaster’ movie. She also had a small role in ‘How I Met Your Mother’. Besides all of this she had done some modeling. In 2007 she posed nude for Playboy magazine. In February 2008, Bongo Jeans announced that she was their new Face model. Kim is also a model for Travis Barker’s famous stars. She announced in her personal blog that she is going to release a perfume line of her own in 2009.

Kim Kardashian has become still more famous in March 2009 when she started a shoe shopping service. She is also a co-owner of a popular clothing boutique called D-A-S-H. The Kardashians do not seem to deserve such fame of having their own reality show but they managed somehow to become famous.
