Kim Kardashian was a socialite (Her father was O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian.), star stylist (Clients included Brandy and Lindsay Lohan.) and co-owner of Dash boutique before a leaked sex tape with Ray J thrust her booty-first into the spotlight. 

She parlayed the attention into the extremely successful E! reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" in 2007. 

She parlayed that, with the help of momager Kris Jenner and sisters Khloe and Kourtney, into a kottage industry that includes clothing lines, calendars, shoes, housewares, boutiques, several TV spinoffs, endorsement deals (Carl’s Jr., QuickTrim, Skechers), watches, a Playboy spread, fragrances, tanning lotions, makeup, jewelry and workout DVDs. 

She shook her infamous backside on the seventh season of "Dancing With the Stars" before tackling fictional roles in "Disaster Movie" and "CSI:NY." 

Her love life has always been as packed as her professional one. Her four-year marriage to music producer Damon Thomas ended in a messy divorce in 2004. 

A string of famous beaus followed: Nick Lachey, the NFL's Reggie Bush and Miles Austin and Gabriel Aubrey. It seemed the self-described princess had found her prince when NBA player Kris Humphries gave her a 20.5-carat sparkler after six months of dating in 2011. 

They lavishly married three months later. 

She filed for divorce 72 days later. She’s hoping to have better luck with rapper Kanye West, with whom she had daughter West in June 2013 and married in May 2014.
