KIM KARDASHIAN is an American reality television personality and socialite.
Wikipedia: Time magazine included Kardashian on their list of 2015’s 100 most influential people, while Vogue described her in 2016 as a “pop culture phenomenon.” Critics and admirers have described her as exemplifying the notion of being famous for being famous.

Kardashian was born on October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Robert and Kris (née Houghton). She has an older sister, Kourtney, a younger sister, Khloé, and a younger brother, Rob.

After their parents divorced in 1991, her mother married again that year, to Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner), the 1976 Summer Olympics decathlon winner. Through their marriage, Kardashian gained step-brothers Burton “Burt”, Brandon, and Brody; step-sister Casey; and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

At that time, she cited the usual irreconcilable differences as the reason of the split.

On June 1, 2015, the world was introduced to Caitlyn Jenner formerly known as Bruce Jenner the Olympic athlete and patriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Such a fuss had been made about his transforming from a man to woman and we were inundated with interviews, rumors, documentary style episodes of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Source: Movie TV Tech Geeks… Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) took to Twitter to reflect on her relationship with Kris Jenner! …“Reading the VF article reminded me of the love & good times Kris & I shared for so many years.

She attended Marymount High School, a Roman Catholic all-girls school in Los Angeles. In 1994, her father represented football player O. J. Simpson during his murder trial. Simpson is Kardashian’s “Godparents”. Kardashian’s father died in 2003 of cancer.
In Touch Weekly: Kim Kardashian first gained media attention as a friend and stylist of Paris Hilton, getting married at 19 to music producer Damon Thomas, getting divorced from him and immediately getting a boyfriend as famous as Ray J. She received wider notice after a 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007. As you know, there is nothing like bad or good in advertising, it is simply advertising, and “scandals” are even more attractive to people. Later that year, she and her family began to appear in the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Once upon a time, many years ago, Kim Kardashian wasn’t a household name, and instead, she was working for and friends with Paris Hilton. In case you didn’t know, there was actually a time they were BFFs… even though it was so long ago it was like a different world back then. Being that it’s been more than a decade since they were being spotted by the paparazzi together.

Of course, it doesn’t seem like Kardashian and Hilton are as close today as they once were, but it’s fun to look back at their friendship the way it used to be — before everything in Kardashian’s life changed. The way things used to be, before Keeping Up With The Kardashians, her KKW beauty empire, her marriage to Kanye West, and her three children, is actually pretty fascinating, and so is Hilton’s role in her life back then. It’s interesting to see exactly how much things have changed.
Sometimes in the 1980’s – Their friendship began.

It’s hard to place where Hilton and Kardashian’s friendship officially began, but in a 2015 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Hilton said they’d been close since they were “little girls,” which makes it safe to say to that their first meeting probably took place somewhere in Kardashian and Hilton’s first 10 years of life.
2003-2006: The Simple Life
Kim Kardashian Posted A Photo Paris Hilton Took Of Her In 2007.. Apparently, Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are reviving the oldies. Kardashian shared an old photo taken by Hilton with her Instagram followers Tuesday night, February 6, 2018, dispensing nostalgic shockwaves through the channels of cyberspace. In this case, “oldies” really just means “mid-2000s.” But, as post-millennial social media mongers already know, in technological years, 2007 might as well have been a lifetime ago. Source: Bustle
The Simple Life (2003-2007) – “The series depicts two wealthy socialites, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, as they struggle to do manual, low-paying jobs such as cleaning rooms, farm work, serving meals in fast-food restaurants and working as camp counselors.” Image credit: Pinterest
While Hilton was filming The Simple Life with former bestie Nicole Richie, Kardashian made frequent appearances on the show while she was helping Hilton get her closet under control with her organizing business, like she did in this clip from the show. Reality television gold, honestly
As Hilton’s friendship with Richie came to a heartbreaking and abrupt end, Kardashian stepped up to fill that BFF-shaped hole in Hilton’s heart. And in 2015, Kardashian told Rolling Stone that back then, she and Hilton were all about getting attention. She said:
“We’d go anywhere and everywhere just to be seen. We knew exactly where to go, where to be seen, how to have something written about you. All you had to do is go to this restaurant, or this party, talk about whatever you want to talk about, and it would be in the paper the next day.”
Also in 2006: The Famed Girls’ Trip to Ibiza

Both Kardashian and Hilton have, at some point, shared throwback photos of this trip, so obviously, it was super meaningful to them. And so were headbands, apparently. This Ibiza trip was clearly legendary in their history.

Although it’s been widely reported that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was the heiress’s assistant, Kim has denied having that particular label..“I would work with Paris, and I would love to organize and clean out their closets and get rid of all their stuff and sell it on eBay and then shop for them, shop for her. That was my job. I loved it,” Kim recalled to Andy Cohen in 2017. “But people will say ‘assistant.’ They always have it wrong.”..Regardless, Kim was fine taking a back seat at events and in paparazzi pictures while Paris soaked up the spotlight in the mid-2000s. However, the power dynamic eventually shifted between the two after Kim’s sex tape with Ray J. Months after The Simple Life was axed by E! in 2007, Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on the same network. And the heiress wasn’t exactly thrilled with Kim’s rise to fame. Source: Yahoo
2007: Kardashian Reached Out To Hilton When She Went To Jail
Paris, 26, pleaded no contest to reckless driving back in January and was sentenced to 3 years probation, alcohol education and $1,500 in fines…UPDATE: Paris was just sentenced to 45 days in jail, starting June 5 at the Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF)…“I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” Paris said moments before Judge Michael T. Sauer made his decision. Source: Just Jared Image credit:newsday.com
This was so long ago that most people have probably forgotten, but it totally happened. In May 2007, Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail after driving with a suspended license. And in an interview with Hollywood.TV, Kardashian confirmed that she did reach out to Hilton after her sentencing, adding, “You have to support people that you love.”
2008: Their Friendship Officially Came To An End
Image credit: pinterest.ph
As TMZ reported in April 2008, during a Las Vegas radio show interview, Hilton said that Kardashian’s butt looked like “cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag,” which is not only incredibly rude but also probably a guarantee that she and Kardashian were no longer on good terms. Who would be friends after a comment like that? Fortunately, Kardashian did say later on that Hilton called her to apologize, so at least there’s that.
Kim acknowledged that the comment created a rift in their friendship. “I haven’t talked to her in a few years,” she told Howard Stern in 2009. “We were good friends… It was just one time we didn’t speak again. I did speak to her once when she went on a radio station and said that my ass looks like cellulite in a trash bag or something. She did call me to apologize.”
Still, Kim was complimentary of Paris, adding, “I love her family. She’s a really smart girl… She showed me so much. I traveled the world with her. She showed me a lot. I’m thankful for everything I learned from her.”
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar that year, Kardashian explained that she and Hilton had drifted apart, like a lot of friends do — but she seemed to be very at peace with it. She told the mag:
“We don’t really talk. As I always say, everyone comes into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. And she was in my life for a long time … There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realize you’re not as similar as you thought. And I never run into her anywhere. Isn’t that so weird?”
August 2014: They Talked About The Good Old Days
Kardashian and Hilton were looking pretty friendly at Ricardo Tisci’s birthday party in 2014… in Ibiza. And judging by Kardashian’s caption they talked about what happened during their 2006 trip.
April 2015: Hilton Shared Her Pride For Her Old Friend
The socialite and world famous heiress, Paris, grew up with Kim before hiring her as personal assistant – a memory we all still come to struggle to terms with. Reality star Kim was by her friend’s side as she shot to fame, and later carved her own path on family show KUWTK. Speaking to Yahoo Style, Paris asked if she agreed the Kardashians wouldn’t be famous without her. “Its nice to inspire people,” she replied. We’ve known each other since we were little girls,we’ve always been friends.” Paris added, ” So yeah, I am really proud of her and what she’s done.” Source: Daily Mirror
In a 2015 interview with Glamour, Hilton said she was proud of Kardashian, squashing all rumors that a feud still existed between them. She said:
“She’s always had a great work ethic like me and she’s always been determined. And that’s what it’s all about. I’m so proud of her. When she’s at home, she’s very normal like anyone else with a glamorous life. She’s chill; she’s so sweet.”
December 2016: They Reunited At A Christmas Party
Hilton attended Kardashian’s family Christmas party that year, and shared photos on Instagram with several members of her family, including Khloé Kardashian and Caitlyn and Kylie Jenner. If the rest of the fam was cool enough with Hilton to do that, there’s a good chance that any bad blood there was between Kardashian and Hilton is gone.
February 2018: They’re Still In Each Other’s Lives — Kind Of
Hilton received one of Kardashian’s coveted fragrance chocolate heart boxes. And while Kardashian did send some to her haters, Hilton seemed to take her box as purely a nice gesture. Also, in early 2018, Hilton was one of the models for West’s fashion line and was dressed just like Kardashian. She even hung out with Kris Jenner at a fashion show. Maybe it’s finally time for Hilton to make her Keeping Up With The Kardashians debut?
Like almost all friendships, Kardashian and Hilton have definitely had their ups and downs, but it’s good to see that in the end, they’re still able to remember all the good times they had with each other when they were younger. And back to the topic of KUWTK — what better way to celebrate their decades-old friendship by returning to Ibiza for an episode? Then, we could all finally find out why that first girls’ trip was so monumental for them.
This photo was snapped at the Balmain 2017 spring/summer show, during which one of Kim’s favorite designers displayed its threads for the upcoming season. But Kim stole all the headlines with this custom Olivier Rousteing outfit, which left very, very, very, VERY little to the imagination. Source: The Hollywood Gossip
In Touch Weekly: HOW DID THE KARDASHIAN GET FAMOUS?

It’s hard to believe the Kardashian family hasn’t always been famous! Don’t believe us? Try going on social media without seeing Kylie Jenner’s lip kits on Instagram, or a funny Khloé Kardashian remark on Twitter. Still, even now that they’ve been around for seemingly as long as we can remember, there are still plenty of people asking why are the Kardashians even famous — and how did they get to be so popular?
While it may be hard to believe, the family has only really been around for more or less a decade. Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in 2006 after Kris Jenner saw an opportunity for a reality show. Kim — aka former BFF to Paris Hilton — was receiving attention from her sex tape with Ray J.
“I started to look at our careers like pieces on a chessboard. Every day, I woke up and walked into my office and asked myself, ‘What move do you need to make today?’ she revealed in her 2011 memoir. “It was very calculated. My business decisions and strategies were very intentional, definite and planned to the nth degree.”

Former American Idol judge and KUWTK executive producer Ryan Seacrest was interested in learning more about the family. Before the series was picked up by E! — Ryan remembered filming a barbecue in their home. “They were all together — as crazy and as fun as loving as they are — and they were throwing each other in the pool,” he explained. “I came back and saw the tape. And I thought, ‘Oh my God, we’ve got to show this to E!’ … We had no idea it would become the monster pop culture business that it is.”

Kylie explained to Teen Vogue in 2016 how being a teenager in the spotlight was difficult. “It’s probably the hardest thing,” she revealed. “You don’t know who you are. I didn’t know who I was a year ago, and I still don’t know exactly who I am now. You’re trying to grow up and make mistakes and everybody’s watching. It’s become a job more than who I am. I don’t even want to be that person anymore.”
Toronto Star: And, similarly, you don’t look to Kim Kardashian for a good role model. Her body is not just her temple; it is her universe. Her brand is her appearance. To broach her Instagram is to trespass in a world where cosmetics are sacred, bikinis are sublime, glitter is a precious mineral, cleavage is high art, pouting is a language, clothing is optional and materialism is the guiding philosophy.
When translated into Kardashian, Descartes’ Cogito, ergo sumbecomes: I pose, therefore I am. If she were a plant, she’d be a plastic tree. The message Kardashian sends to millions of followers is simple: how you look is all that matters.
Kim Kardashian West is the reigning Queen of Sheer. From see-through tops to cheeky sheer skirts (above) and even outright lingerie, there’s seemingly no look that’s too daring for this street style star. “If you’ve got it, flaunt it” is definitely the reality star’s M.O. in terms of dressing her bod, and with her post-baby fitness killing the game, we’ve been seeing more of Kardashian West’s body than ever. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took to her app and website this week to detail one of her fave looks: “Sheer Vibes.” Source: InStyle
She is known for baring her body, and Kim Kardashian have revealed a little too much on set of her latest photo shoot.

Do you believe Kim’s photos were photoshopped? Source: Rebel Circus
Viral. The photos went viral pretty quickly due to the fact that Kim’s butt has visible cellulite marks. Most women have at least some cellulite; it’s natural, and for some celebrities, showing a little cellulite is no big deal, but this is Kim Kardashian. We have never seen her butt looking anything less than shiny and smooth. Source: Rebel Circus … “I saw these awful photos of myself when I was on a trip in Mexico and people were Photoshopping them and sharpening them, and they’re the worst photos,” Kardashian said on The View. “I definitely was not in my best shape. I hadn’t worked out in about twelve weeks, I’d had two surgeries on my uterus. We documented that on the show. But I was already not feeling like myself and then when people were like sharpening them and making them look way worse, and then those were going around, I was like ‘Okay, I’m going to get it together’ and I started working out with this bodybuilder girl.” Source: marieclaire.com
