For the latest news on reality TV megastar Kim Kardashian, you've come to the right place!
Bathing suits, perfume, clothing, weight loss products, hamburgers, jewelry — When you hear the name Kim Kardashian these are just a few of the things that come to mind. That and the infamous Kim Kardashian/Ray J sex tape (and, no, you can't find it on YouTube!) But the socialite/actress/model/all-around Renaissance woman is best known for the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, about her larger-than-life family. Sister of Kourtney and Khloé, Kim was Kris Jenner's second daughter with the late O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Kardashian. Kris's second husband, Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner, is Kim's stepfather.
Like her sisters, Kim is a seasoned entrepreneur: She is the co-founder and chief fashion stylist for ShoeDazzle, co-owner of DASH boutiques, and co-creator of the sunless tanning product Kardashian Glamour Tan. She and her sisters released a line of clothing for Bebe in the Spring of 2010; another clothing line, K-Dash, which is being sold on QVC; and an Armenian-inspired jewelry line for Virgins, Angels, and Saints. If you want the inside scoop on her sprawling family and rise to fame, pick up a copy of Kardashian Konfidential, the sisters' joint memoir.
Beyond her many fashion and beauty pursuits, she's a spokesperson for Carl's Jr and has appeared on the small screen in How I Met Your Mother, Drop Dead Diva, and CSI: NY. On the big screen, Kim has appeared in Disaster Movie and can soon be seen in a supporting role in Tyler Perry's Temptation. Following in the footsteps of her ex-best friend Paris Hilton, she's also poised to launch a singing career. Thanks to Auto-Tune (and The-Dream — of Rihanna's "Umbrella" fame), practically anyone can release a hit single.
Like many of her celebutante contemporaries, the Season 7 Dancing With the Stars contestant is no stranger to scandal — Kim stars in a very public sex tape with rapper Ray J. After escaping an emotionally and physically abusive relationship with her ex-husband, Damon Thomas, Kim has gone on to date Ray J, Nick Lachey, Nick Cannon, New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush, and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin.
In 2011, Kim married and then divorced New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries. Kim and Kris married in a lavish ceremony on August 20, 2011. Kim abruptly filed for divorce from Kris 72 days later on October 31, 2011, citing "irreconcilable differences." The reality star is now dating rapper Kanye West. In January 2013, Kanye announced that Kim is pregnant. They are expecting the arrival of their first child in July 2013.
