Keeping Up With The Kardashians is an American reality TV show which chronicles the personal and professional lives of the blended Kardashian-Jenner family. It is one of the longest-running reality TV series in America.
The show focuses on Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, plus their half-sisters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner feature too, alongside Rob Kardashian.
The Kardashians began appearing in the media when Kim worked as a personal assistant for Paris Hilton. She occasionally appeared in her TV series The Simple Life. Kim worked with other celebrities such as Brandy Norwood and Lindsay Lohan.
Khloe, Kim and Kourtney opened a high fashion boutique called Dash, and a sex tape Kim made with Ray J was leaked in 2007. Kourtney appeared in Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive in 2006.
Kris Jenner said of creating a TV show with her family ‘Everybody thinks that [my children] could create a bunch of drama in their lives, but it’s something that I felt I didn’t even have to think about. It would be natural.’
Ryan Seacrest developed the idea and shared a tape of the family with E! The show was picked up not long after Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie announced the end of The Simple Life on the same channel.
