Kim Kardashian. biography
Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian, born on October 21, 1980, is an entrepreneur, TV personality, model, socialite, and fashion designer who first became famous for her sex tape with popular R & B signer Ray J in 2007. Her main success came later in 2007 with E! Network's premiere of the reality series "Keeping up with the Kardashians" which shows the array of drama within the Kardashian and Jenner family, including Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom, Robert Kardashian, and younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Weighing 115 lb and standing 5'3 in a pair of size 7 shoes, Kim Kardashian has become a successful celebrity icon with a net worth of $38 million. She first showed her desire to succeed when she obtained her first job at her father's (the late Robert Kardashian) music marketing firm called Movie Tunes while attending Marymount High School, an all-girls college preparatory school.
In 2006, collaboration with Khloe and Kourtney, Kim opened the designer clothing store Dash in Calabasas, California; geared toward those with fashion sense. In 2012, Kim consecrated the opening of Dash LA on Melrose Ave. with Kayne West and more than a dash of PDA (public display of affection). Toward the end of the year, Kim landed her first acting gig in Beyond the Break and further progressed her career by shooting a nude layout for the December 2007 Playboy issue.
In 2008, Kim starred as Lisa in the spoof film Disaster Movie and appeared in How I Met Your Mother episode "Benefits" as well as Season 3 of the series 90210 (alongside her sisters Khloe and Kourtney). She was a judge during Cycle 13 of America's Next Top Model and was later partnered with Mark Ballas in season 7 of "Dancing with the Stars" but was the third contestant voted off.
In April 2009, Kim initiated her entrepreneur career by releasing a workout DVD series Fit in Your Jeans by Friday with trainers Patrick Goudeau and Jennifer Galardi and was named co-founder and chief fashion stylist for ShoeDazzle. She later appeared in Fall Out Boy's music video "Thnks fr the Mmrs" where she is seen cuddling with bassist Pete Wentz and made a cameo appearance in the porn spoof Deep in the Valley. In October of 2009, Cookie Diet creator, Dr. Sanford Siegal, filed a defamation lawsuit against Kim after she went on twitter and said Dr. Siegal was falsely promoting that she was on the cookie diet. The case was ultimately dismissed on February 2, 2011.
During the spring of 2010, Kim released her own perfume "Kim Kardashian" and released a clothing line for Bebe with Khloe and Kourtney. After many successful Keeping Up with the Kardashians seasons and spinoffs, E! Network premiered another spin off Kourtney and Kim Take New York which followed the sisters as they opened a Dash store in NYC. The second season filmed Kim and Kris Humphries following their impromptu marriage but was later revamped to focus on the couple's destructive relationship after Kim filed for divorce.
