Kim Kardashian

Spotlight

Kim Kardashian was a socialite (Her father was O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian.), star stylist (Clients included Brandy and Lindsay Lohan.) and co-owner of Dash boutique before a leaked sex tape with Ray J thrust her booty-first into the spotlight. She parlayed the attention into the extremely successful E! reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in 2007. She then parlayed that, with the help of momager Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, into a one-fam kottage industry that includes clothing lines, calendars, shoes, housewares, boutiques, several reality spinoffs, endorsement deals (Carl’s Jr., QuickTrim, Skechers Shape-ups), watches, a Playboy spread, fragrances, tanning lotions, makeup, jewelry and workout DVDs. She shook her infamous backside on the seventh season of Dancing With the Stars before tackling fictional roles in Disaster Movie, CSI:NY and Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions Of A Marriage Counselor. Her love life has always been as packed as her professional one. Her four-year marriage to music producer Damon Thomas ended in a messy divorce in 2004. A string of famous beaus followed: Nick Lachey, NFL running back Reggie Bush, NFL receiver Miles Austin and Halle Berry’s baby daddy Gabriel Aubrey. It seemed the self-described princess had found her prince when NBA player Kris Humphries presented her with a 20.5-carat sparkler after six months of dating and the two married in front of 440 guests and E! cameras three months later. She filed for divorce just 72 days later. She’s hoping to have better luck with rapper Kanye West, with whom she’s expecting her first child.
