A socialite and television personality, Khloe Kardashian initially rose to fame on the reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. From the country’s entertainment capital of Los Angeles, she is also well known for being the young sister of Kim and Courtney Kardashian, both of whom are also reality celebs.
Born on June 27, 1984 in Los Angeles, California, Khloe Kardashian is the daughter of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, the latter of whom received some attention after serving as the defence lawyer for O.J. Simpson in 1994. Initially during her teens, she went to Marymount High School, an all-girls Roman Catholic institute in LA. Following her sisters graduations however, she opted to continue her education through home-based schooling. As it had put it, she had felt that “there was no reason for [her] to stay” as she “didn’t have any friends”. At the age of seventeen, Khloe successfully earned her GED, one year ahead of schedule.
How Khloe Kardashian Became Famous
As it happened, a sex tape was leaked in February 2007- one of her older sister Kim, and ex-boyfriend, Ray J. Not long afterwards, all of her siblings were invited to star in their own reality series called, Keeping Up with the Kardashians (2007).
Premiered in the fall of 2007 on the E! Network, the show centred around the everyday lives of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Aside from Khloe and her sisters, the series also starred her parents Caitlyn Jenner and Rob Kardashian, and her half-sisters, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner. Having said that, the majority of the series focuses on the relationship between Khloe, and her sisters Kourtney, Kim, Kylie and Kendall.
Despite negative reviews, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has proved to be immensly popular in the United States. As far as criticism goes, the show is often criticized for demonstrating “a lack of intelligence”. In fact, many critics have come to agree that the series is only successful due to being a “guilty pleasure.”
A constant success for E!, the series was seen by over 1.3 million viewers during the first month. Since then, ratings have only increased further- closer to the 5 million mark. One of the most popular reality titles currently on television, it has been airing since 2007. Following the end of the thirteenth season in 2016, a fourteenth season was commissioned; it will premiere on October 1, 2017.
