Its success has led to the creation of spin-offs including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. In 2010, Kardashian was reported to be the highest-paid reality television personality, with estimated earnings of US$6 million

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is best known for her role in family TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but has since made a name for herself on social media with a constant stream of selfies and family shots. The star has various beauty lines with her sisters. She is married to rapper Kanye West and they have a baby, North West, together.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Keeping Up with the Kardashians (often abbreviated to KUWTK) is an American reality television series that has aired on the E! cable network since October 14, 2007. The show is currently in its tenth season and focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Its premise originated with Ryan Seacrest, who also serves as an executive producer.

The series mainly focuses on sisters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian. It additionally places emphasis on their parents Kris and Caitlyn Jenner (previously known as Bruce), their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and brother Rob Kardashian, as well as Kourtney’s ex-boyfriend Scott Disick. The significant others of the Kardashian sisters have also been featured on the show, including Khloé’s ex-husband Lamar Odom. In season eight, Caitlyn’s son Brody, who has made cameo appearances in the early seasons, joined the show to appear regularly, along with his brother Brandon, and Brandon’s wife, Leah. Kim’s best friend Jonathan Cheban and Khloé’s best friend Malika Haqq have also been a part of the show.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians has received poor reviews from critics since its premiere. It has often been criticized for emphasizing the “famous for being famous” concept and for appearing to fabricate aspects of its storylines. However, the show has brought in very high ratings for the network and its success has led to the creation of numerous spin-offs, including Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloé & Lamar, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, as well as the most recent Dash Dolls. It has additionally distributed all seasons to DVD.

She mooned everyone

After debuting in her sex tape, periodically gracing her Instagram and making a brief appearance in GQ, Kim Kardashian’s butt’s latest showing is the cover of Paper magazine. She’s going full-moon, above the headline “Break the Internet: Kim Kardashian”

The photos were shot by famed French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, who also used Kardashian’s recognizable derriere to recreate his iconic “Champagne Incident” image for another safe-for-work version of the cover.

She posted the original image on her Instagram here.

Of course, whenever Kim Kardashian or her butt do anything, it creates a massive Internet controversy. Glee actress Naya Rivera allegedly commented on Kardashian’s Instagram, “I normally don’t… but you’re someone’s mother

From reality TV star to media sensation to bona fide sex symbol – Kim Kardashian West is so famous even Barack Obama has to take notice. And this year, Mrs West has gone from star to supernova. GQ Woman Of The Year? The competition didn’t stand a chance…

The Most Famous Woman On The Planet walks into a bar and the room looks up from its preprandial piscines of Laurent-Perrier and truffle pizza biancos. Her entrance – from chilled SUV interior to sidewalk, to the air-conditioned antechamber of the Mercer Hotel lobby – sounds like a brawl, but looks more like some sort of apocalyptic electrical storm. The cyclonic eye of the paparazzi was here 30 minutes before her arrival, now they’re blinding fellow diners with a wall of hot white light in a bid to get their wage. Hundreds of shutters fired, applauding a woman putting one dainty size-four foot in front of another.

The hotel door shuts with a reassuringly expensive “whump”, leaving the subject standing alone, silent and in silence, perfectly poised in heels as sharp as ice picks. Kim Kardashian West, 33, is dressed in the city’s colour of money: black ripped jeans, a black sheer top and a black leather jacket. A diamond the size of a walnut flickers like a supernova on her ring finger. The room’s ennui wobbles momentarily. A mobile phone whirs on a table unanswered like a beetle on its back. Someone somewhere stifles a nervous snigger.

The Mercer has been something of a happy, neutral ground of late, both for Kim and for her husband of four months, hip hop’s end-of-level boss, Kanye West. Just over a block from the apartment they share in SoHo – it was the rap star’s bachelor pad, now it’s their Manhattan pied-à-terre – the luxury travel hub has proved invaluable as a communal space where the international jet set are just too cool to come up and ask for a photograph, while the celebrity guests travelling through are nothing if not same-level-famous. It’s a courteous crowd.

I am married to an incredible man and let’s just say we do like to have fun. There’s nothing wrong with being adventurous and experimenting.

Kim Kardashian West

“We love it here,” says Kim as she sits down next to me in a corner table and slips out of a biker jacket so tight it’s like a snake shedding its skin. Kim is far smaller than you’d think, petite even, her features clear of any make-up. She is far prettier than any hastily snapped sidewalk shot ever gives her beauty credit for. Her skin emits wealth, in a way only the skin of the obscenely wealthy can – conditioned, buffed, incandescent. 

“I remember this is actually where we decided, finally, on North as a name for our baby girl,” she says. Kim gave birth on 15 June 2013 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in LA. “It was a rumour in the press and we’d never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell [Williams] came over to us and said, ‘Oh my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter “North”? That is the best name.’ I said, ‘No, we’re not, that’s just a rumour.’ Then a little while later Anna Wintour [Editor-In-Chief of American Vogue] came over and asked the same thing. She told us: ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.”

Conceived by media, fuelled by an insatiable public interest, authenticated first by one of the world’s most-loved pop stars and seconded by the most powerful woman in fashion – it’s a fitting rite of passage, not just for the naming of baby North, but for Kim Kardashian’s rise and remarkable reinvention. It’s been an astonishing 12 months, let alone decade. Sex tape to sex symbol. Reality star to media sensation. Fashion pariah to style icon. And to top it all off, British GQ’s Woman Of The Year 2014. I mean, seriously, who else was it going to be?

The rise and rebirth of Kim Kardashian has been hard-fought. In August 2013, the president of the United States proclaimed in an interview, “I think there has been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking somehow that was the mark of success.”
