About

Kim Kardashian is an American TV personality, model and actress who is best known for starring in the E! reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In the entertainment news media and online, Kardashian is often cited as a prime example of a celebutante, or an individual who has attained celebrity status for no particular identifiable reason.

Career

In October 2007, Kardashian and her mother, siblings and half-sisters were hired by the American basic cable and satellite television channel E! to star in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. As of August 2014, the show has run for a total of nine seasons with 126 episodes.

On February 20th, 2012, Kardashian created an Instagram[2] photo feed, garnering upwards of 16.9 million followers in three years.

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood Video Game

Oh brother. The Kim Kardashian mobile app is drawing negative publicity for doing the exact same thing that half of all mobile games on market do.

Am I the only person who understands that mobile games generally aren’t intended to be played for more than a little at a time? They’re for when you only have a minute or two to kill.

You want to play for half an hour? Get a 3DS or a PSP.
