Reality TV Konquerors

Kollection. Kolor. Konfidential. Kofessions. Khaos.

Know who I'm talking about yet?

Yes. It's the KARDASHIANS. And Jenners too but Kardashian is the name.

If you aren't familiar with this family, a simple Google search will bring you plenty of results of news surrounding this family, their wacky antics as well as their various businesses. Many people would argue that this family hav no talent. They are famous for being rich and are a bunch of people with no substance. But I beg to differ. 

I wouldn't call myself a Kardashian fan, but I love to google random famous people and find out about their lives. I also watch Keeping up with the Kardashians which my dad calls "rubbish" but I find entertaining. You have to agree that some of the things this family comes up with is pure crazy. But maybe because they are so big, thus everyday is filled with entertainment. 

But back to the topic of substance. Yes the Kardashians are rich (the late Robert Kardashian was an attorney and I'm sure they had other businesses too) and they first got famous because they are rich (and Kim's sex tape helped too) but there is also an argument that they have great business acumen and know how to seek out opportunities as well as grab hold of chances. The DASH store is frequently featured in their reality TV show but how many people know that these sisters had the store even before the show was created. And how many people know that Kim Kardashian started her career by borrowing money from her father to buy limited edition items and reselling them for a profit. The sisters then expanded to rearranging wardrobes. Yes the sisters are rich, but they still depended on themselves and their hard work to get to where they are today. Of course, they also have their mother to thank.

Kris Jenner is their momager (mom-manager). She seeks out work opportunities and makes sure her daughters are getting the best out of a deal. She is always there for her girls and always ready to help with their troubles whether it's personal or work-related. And it seems that this work ethic is prominent throughout the clan. Bruce was an olympic runner who later branched into racing and ran his own business afterwards. Kendall and Kylie are the youngest but Kylie already has a foothold in the modelling world and these sisters are about to have a clothing line named after them. Robert Kardashian is also following in his sisters fashion foosteps, releasing his own sock line.

So those who claim this family is but famous for being famous. Think again. They might have had a more privileged beginning, but it was hard work that has taken them to where they are today.
