Kourtney was born in Los Angeles, California to Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. She is the eldest of four children from Bob and Kris. After her parents divorce, she spent her time between her father's and mother's houses in Beverly Hills. Her mother married Bruce Jenner, 1976 Olympic Gold Metal Champion for the Decathlon and later had two children with him. After the O.J. Simpson murder trial propelled Kourtney's father, Bob, into the spotlight (he was a member of the "Dream Team" of lawyers defending the accused murderer in what journalists hail the "Trial of the Century."), her mother decided it would be safer to move her family to Hidden Hills, California.
Kourtney attended Marymount High School in Los Angeles, an All-Girls Private Catholic High School. After graduation, she enrolled at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. After two years, she transferred to the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. She graduated in May of 2002 with a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre Arts with a minor in Spanish. After graduation, she and her mother opened up children's clothing boutiques in both the Los Angeles Area (818) and New York City, called Smooch, which carries the brand Crib Rock Couture. She is now, at the age of 26, staring in a Reality Television Show called 'Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive' that will earn money for charity.
Kim Kardashian Biography
Curvaceous fashionista Kim Kardashian was born on October 21, 1980, in Los Angeles, California. Born of Armenian descent, Kardashian’s late father was OJ Simpson’s defense attorney Robert Kardashian; and she has nine brothers and sisters, including three full siblings, two half-sisters, three step-brothers, and one step-sister. Kardashian’s step-father is 1976 Olympic Games gold medalist, Bruce Jenner, father of Princes of Malibu star Brody Jenner.
Just In: Kim Kardashian will appear on the cover of the December 2007 issue of Hugh Hefner's Playboy Magazine.
The Kardashians now have a new TV reality show "Keeping up with the Kardashians" staring Kim and her sisters and stepsisters as well as her mom and former Olymian stepdad Bruce Jenner.
Growing up in an affluent Los Angeles family, Kardashian received a car for her sixteenth birthday. Unlike her friends, however, Kardashian found herself cut off by her parents at age eighteen, as they wanted to instill a work ethic in their daughter. Kardashian befriended such socialites as Paris Hilton, Nicky Hilton, and Nicole Richie. Later on, these friends would also become some of her top clients when she founded the upscale Calabasas fashion boutique "Dash," along with her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe. Prior to opening her own store, Kardashian sold some of her top designer duds on e-bay.
In 2004, twenty-three-year-old Kardashian divorced from her husband, R&B producer, Damon Thomas. Much of Kardashian’s post-divorce romances with high-profile celebrities would prove to place her in the headlines, including relationships with Diddy, The Game, and Nick Lachey, shortly following his 2005 split from Jessica Simpson.
In early 2007, a sex tape hit the Internet starring Kardashian and boyfriend at the time, Ray J, little brother to Brandy Norwood. Although Kardashian admitted to the existence of the tape before it went public, she denied orchestrating the release of the tape for profit, claiming "I don’t need the money." Adult film company, Vivid Entertainment, purchased the tape from an unknown source for $1 million, and reportedly plans to release the tape on DVD before February 28, 2007, under the title Kim Kardashian Superstar. The tape has also been posted on Kimksuperstar.com, and can be seen for a fee.
Co-chairman of the company distributing the video has stated "We are comfortable that we have the legal right to distribute this video." Kardashian’s people seem to think otherwise, however.
When notified of Vivid Entertainment’s distribution of the video, a rep for Kardashian replied "Are you [bleep]ing me? Kim is going to die . . . are you sure? She will be taking legal action against anyone responsible for this. She was unaware of this and caught completely off-guard." Kardashian and Ray have long since split, and the rapper has since been romantically linked to Lil’ Kim and is currently dating Whitney Houston.
Kardashian featured on the cover of Complex magazine's February/March 2007 issue and went on to be the Playboy magazine covergirl for December 2007.
Kim has a lot going on as of late, due to the fact that E! has begun shooting season two of her family’s hit reality show.
She also snagged a gig with Bongo jeans as the spokeswoman for their new line of jeans. It’s rumored that her body was a little too voluptuous for Bongo, hence some photoshopping occurred in the new ads.
