Kim Kardashian's BFF Jonathan Cheban is just one of the many guests to show up this season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, but he's probably the only one who will get bitch-slapped by Kourtney Kardashian. But those of you who aren't Kardashian addicts like us may be wondering, who is this guy that thinks he can talk to Kourtney like that?? Who is Jonathan Cheban?
In addition to being besties with Kim — well, when she isn't meddling in his life by putting strain on his relationship with his business partner, that is — Jonathan is also longtime pal of Scott Disick and most of the Kardashian fam. By day, Jonathan is a publicist for Command PR, a firm which was chronicled on E!’s The Spin Crowd, a short lived 2010 docu-series that was produced by none other than Kim Kardashian. Jonathan was portrayed as an annoying, self-centered, know-it-all boss type, but on his various appearances on Keeping Up and Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and other Kardashian shows, he seems like a great friend to Kim, Scott, and the rest of the Kardashian family.
Scott has said that he and Jonathan go way back; they grew up in NYC together. Small world! Jonathan and Kim are also often spotted palling around together. Maybe it’s because of the day job, but he seems to know lots of reality stars. He’s been captured on film with Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Sammi Sweetheart, among others.
