Career: After getting media attention with Paris Hilton’s stylist and close friend’s help, Kim got to appear in several episodes of the reality TV series The Simple Life between 2003 and 2006. The shoe starred Paris Hilton.

After giving appearances in the reality TV show, Kim entered the world of business. She opened the boutique shop D-A-S-H in Calabasas with her two sisters. Negative popularity had a lot to contribute to Kardashian’s career. The talking point in studio rooms across the world after a s*x tape made by her and Ray J in 2002 got leaked. The model then sued Vivid Entertainment for distributing the film as Kim Kardashian, Superstar. However, she later reached a $5 million settlement with the film production company and dropped the lawsuit. She also allowed the production company to release the tape.
