The Kardashian Decade; How a Sex-Tape led to a Billion-dollar brand! The exact words used to describe this months feature of “Hollywood’s Most Influential Reality-TV Family”. It has been 10 years already since these beautiful ladies first graced our screens. Back in 2007 when their now hit reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians made its debut on E! Entertainment TV, the girls were just finding their different ways into fame and Hollywood. Fast-forward to 10 years later, they have grown-up and grown older in front of the world and turned what many thought wont last a season, into 14 seasons, 9 spin-off shows and a billion-dollar empire. You cant seriously call them beauties only, they have billion-dollar brains and body’s with receipts lol just kidding! See all their stunning and laid-back pictures and read some catchy excerpts from their interview by Leslie Bruce after the cut .
Keeping Up With the Kardashians now airs in 167 countries, boasts nine spinoffs to date and has ranked as E! Entertainment’s top-rated series since 2010. And while it peaked in 2011 with 10.5 million viewers over two nights for Kim’s fairy-tale wedding to Kris Humphries (they divorced after 72 days), it still averages north of 2.1 million every Sunday in its 13th season. In 2015, E! agreed to a reported $80 million deal to keep the family through season 14. But that’s a pittance compared to the fashion and lifestyle empire they’ve built from one boutique in the Valley. With a combined social media reach of 700 million-plus followers and five insanely profitable apps, the family mints millions from a hodgepodge of endorsement deals, paid appearances and can’t-stay-in-stock products. And it all grew from a show that opened its pilot with these prophetic words from Kim (already notorious for the sex tape she made with her ex, Ray J, that was made public in 2007): “I hate you all.”
As much as the family reveals on the show, on red carpets and on Instagram, one mystery remains. How the hell did this happen?
