Kim Kardashian World Photos Video Style and Fashion Divorce

Updated on April 26, 2013

Most Searched Celebrity

Kim Kardashian is the most searched celebrity of 2010 according to Beating out Sandra Bullock, Lady Gaga and even teen star Justin Bieber. So, my question is- why?

Okay,I admit it, she is gorgeous and has a keen eye in fashion and style, but what is the world so obsessed about?

In attempting to find that answer, I researched Kim Kardashian, her family and upbringing. Here is what I've found and why I personally think she is so popular.

Kimberly Noel Kardashian was born October 21, 1980 in Los Angeles California. Parents are Robert and Kris Kardashian. Her parents divorced in 1990. Sadly, Kims father passed away due to Esophageal Cancer September 30, 2003. Kims mother has since remarried to Olympian Bruce Jenner.


Kim began this career of hers by first being friends with most notable heiress Paris Hilton. Being seen with Paris certainly makes you known whether you want to be or not. Like Paris, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape explode over the Internet "accidentally." This being with ex, Ray J. She sued Vivid Entertainment for the rights and ownership of the tape but dropped it for a nice paycheck of 5 million. Not a bad day at the office.

Kim has made an appearance or two on television and the movies. Nothing to brag about I'm afraid as her longest running appearance is her own reality show called Keeping Up With the Kardashians airing on E!.

She made an appearance on Dancing with the Stars lasting only three episodes, but she and co-dancer Mark Ballas definitely heated up the dance floor.

I have to admit, it was fun to watch. She does have a certain grace about her.

The Last Dance

Kim posed for Playboy in December of 2007. This again boosting her popularity. She has represented such brand names as Bongo Jeans, Travis Barker Styles and Perfect Skin Skincare.

Kim is a motivated gal as she:

  • Co-founder and chief fashion stylist for ShoeDazzle
  • Released a DVD Workout Series "Fit in Your Jeans by Friday"
  • Co-owner of a clothing store called D-A-S-H
  • Creator of a sunless tanner called Kardashian Glamour Tan
  • Working on an Autobiography
  • Kim Kardashian Perfume
  • Joined and is active in the Give a Damn campaign

And most recently, we have been notified that Kim is Digitally Dead.

Digital Death?

Kim Kardashian has died! Oh alright, it's really not that dramatic as it is her tweeter accout and blog that is dead- for now. She has vowed to stop her digital world until $1,000,000 is raised to buy her life back.Numerous artists have vowed the same digital death to save millions of real lives affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. Some of the artists including in dying are: Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Usher and many more. However, I really have no idea who most of them were.

Alright, so when I first heard of the "Digital Death" by Kim Kardashian, I'll admit, I rolled my eyes and said 'who really cares?" My life won't stop without a Twitter update. But now, I realize, these people are genius! People are crazed about celebraties. People want to know what they are doing, what their eating, who they are talking to- all the time!

It's a fans compulsion.

So by Kim "cutting them off" so to speak, they are willing to pay money to be apart of her life again. Crazy...but just crazy enough to work.    

Kim Gets Waxed!

Wax Figure

You know you've made it if they replicate a doll after you or hell, how about a life-like wax replica!

Kim was honored as she unveiled the wax figure of herself at the New York City branch of Madame Tussauds in July of 2010. Now that's something.

So I told you why I felt she is so popular and I will now.

I feel that Kim has proved herself to be more than Paris Hiltons accessory. Yes, she may have used the sex ploy to get her noticed, but she is more than that. She, I feel, is not only beautiful but driven.

Most girls that have taken this road have either ended up in jail, rehab or nowhere. Kim has shown the world that she can use her sexuality to her benefit and still be respected as a business woman in the end. She has style that is infectious and that is why I feel she is popular.

Best regards to you Miss Kardashian, you are an insperation to women everywhere.

Kim Nude?

Kim was furious when she did a photo-shoot nude, covered in gray paint that was supposed to then be covered in artful images. She was tearful stating it was "like porn" and "worse than Playboy." She later stated she was happy with the photos. A word of advice Kim?

Don't take your clothes off and the chance of it looking "porn-like" would never happen.

Kim Is Married!

Kim Kardashian was married on August 20th of 2011 to the NBA player Kris Humphries. With three couture gowns, 50,000 flowers, and $15 million worth of diamonds it was a small affair.


For this being her second marriage (I guess the groom never knew that) this was nothing to blink at.

Congratulations Kim, I do hope the best for you....

Wedding a Fake

Well, how quickly things change. Kim and her husband of 72 days have filed for divorce, making most think it was a scam for money. It is said that Kims managers and agents recruited her short-lived groom to marry her, making a cool 18 million to split in the meantime.

Sad but true....

Kim and Kanye

Hell, we all saw this coming even when she was married to the "love of her life." So many appearances on her reality show just made it all too obvious they were together. But is this relationship a good one?

As for Kanye? I would have to say no..

Now that is 'ganster'
Now that is 'ganster'

His reputation is certainly up for debate as he continues to be on her show as this soft, gentle man. He is in all the gossip magazines and people show to see if Kim is there rather to see him. It is even noted that people walked out of his during the Sandy Relief Concert due to his leather kilt, no doubt picked out by Kim. His ticket sales are down just as his respect level.

As for Kim? Of course this is a good move for her.

More publicity, more money. Enough said.

Baby On the Way!!!

Speaking of money....Kim is pregnant! Yes, it's official. Kanye and Kim are expecting.Twins I hear? I see E specials and exclusives from the Hospital coming with this one. Sounds very familiar.Care to take bids how much money this will rake in?

Maybe they should name the babies....ATM and Cash? I think that would be most appropriate.....

Well, regardless, good luck to them.

Kim is Divorced!

Well its about time. Although I really wanted to see her cry and whine some more about being prego while still married...oh well, I'm sure there will be more how big she is getting?

Oops, been there haven't we?
