Dissecting Kardashian Family Members, the Sisters and their Kids

The Kardashian family members did not just emerge from obscurity all of a sudden to take over the newsfeed; instead, it was a gradual process and huge sacrifices that made it possible for them.

How the Kardashian Family Rose to Fame

The Kardashian family members gained massive popularity because of their reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Many people still traced their rise to the limelight to 1994 when the first husband of Kris Jenner, Late Robert Kardashian, represented O.J Simpson as a defense lawyer in the controversial case involving the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. The Kardashian family members gained more popularity after a leaked sex tape of Kim and Ray J went viral. The sex tape was bought by a Porn company Vivid Entertainment and was later released as a 41-minute home movie titled Kim Kardashian, Superstar. This kept the media busy, with the Kim Kardashian name swirling all around.

However, their mother (Kris Jenner) saw it as an opportunity to boost the family’s fortunes. She met a popular TV host and producer Ryan Seacrest, informed him about her plans, and after much deliberation with the rest of the Kardashian family members, they pitched a reality TV show named Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The reality show debuted on October 14, 2007, and their fame went through the roof.

The reality series follows all the Kardashian family members and their partners, bringing to the screen how they deal with their daily lives. Currently, the family announced the end of the family show after 15 years of entertainment on June 10, with the 20th episode as the last.
