Keeping Up with the Kardashians is a reality television show on E! Entertainment Network that focuses on the lives of three sisters: Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian. The show follows the sisters as they go about their daily lives, which include interacting with their large extended family, who include: Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner, Kanye West, Scott Disick, and, as time goes on, the family's youngest generation.
The show has received a large quantity of criticism for its low quality and positive depictions of shameful behavior. However, since its first airing, the series has maintained a high amount of viewership, with season premieres receiving between 1.3 million and 4.5 million viewers.
The Kardashians are a wealthy family from Beverley Hills, California. Robert Kardashian, the deceased father of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob, and the husband of Kris Jenner, was a famous lawyer in Los Angeles, known for representing celebrities, including O.J. Simpson in his 1990s murder trial. As of 2015, the Kardashian family is thought to have a collective net worth of more than $100 million.
In 2004, Kim Kardashian became a stylist to various celebrities, including becoming the personal shopper and stylist to Lindsey Lohan. She also became romantically involved with several celebrity men, including Nick Lachey of the boy band 98 Degrees and more famously the rapper Ray J. A home sex tape between Kardashian and Ray J leaked in 2007, and was purchased and released by Vivid Entertainment – Kardashian later settled out of court for over $5 million dollars with Vivid over the rights to the tape, but not before it had been downloaded and viewed millions of times. In 2015, Vivid Entertainment claimed that the tape was the best selling celebrity sex tape of all time, and Pornhub claimed that it had been downloaded more than 93 million times.
Soon after the release of the tape, Kim Kardashian entered talks with Ryan Seacrest and E! Entertainment Network to launch the reality television series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
The series began by focusing on the lives of the four children of Kris Jenner by her first marriage to Robert Kardashian: Kim Kardashian West, Rob Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian. The three sisters own a boutique called D-A-S-H, and launch several clothing lines, handbags, and fragrances throughout the series.
As the series has progressed, Jenner's children by her second marriage to Caitlyn Jenner (then known as Bruce) also became characters on the show: Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Brody Jenner, and Brandon Jenner. Kendall and Kylie, who are now in their late teens, have both launched careers in modeling during their time on the show.
Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is also a recurring character on the show, which has followed her transition from male to female and its effects on her family. Other recurring characters include Scott Disick, Kourtney's boyfriend, and Leah Jenner, Brandon's wife. Other members of the family occasionally include their love interests as well, notably Kim's previous marriage to Kris Humpries and Khloé's tempestuous relationship with basketball player Lamar Odom.
By placing themselves and their families in the public eye for ten consecutive seasons, the Kardashian/Jenner clan has reaped substantial financial and career benefits, including many brand sponsorships, product endorsements, and other cultural appearances.
Several characters on the show have received spinoffs. These shows include the location based series Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons. In addition Khloé & Lamar featured their episodes focusing on the pair's romance. An upcoming spinoff focuses on the women who work in the Kardashians' boutique D-A-S-H and is called Dash Dolls.
Before Caitlyn Jenner transitioned, she was the subject of a 20/20 special about the process called Bruce. In addition, E! will release an eight episode miniseries entitled I Am Cait about Caitlyn's transition.
