Like her sister — and fellow Beverly Hills Housewife — Kyle Richards-Umansky, Kim grew up in the spotlight as a child actress. She began her acting career in diapers (literally, her first job was a diaper commercial), and she landed a spot in the television series Nanny and the Professor at age 4. In the '70s and '80s, she popped up in roles on Diff’rent Strokes, The Rockford Files, and CHiPs. Her crowning achievement, however, was signing with Disney Studios at age 10 — the first actress to do so since Haley Mills. Long before the Miley Cyrus and Ashley Tisdale era, Kim starred in 17 Disney films, including Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain.
Kim ultimately ended her acting career to raise her four children. Her first marriage, to G. Monty Brinson, produced daughter Brooke Ashley in 1986. After Kim and Brinson divorced, she married Gregory Davis and gave birth to Whitney and Chad. Kim and Davis's marriage also ended in divorce, and her youngest child, Kimberly, is her daughter with ex-boyfriend John Jackson. Kim has been unlucky in love: although she had been dating entrepreneur Todd Jason Voisine, whom she met in 2009, she is currently single.
