THE KARDASHIAN DECADE: HOW A SEX TAPE LED TO A BILLION DOLLAR EMPIRE

Hello people it’s Friday! Another one of my very random Hollywood posts 😊

It started with a sex scandal but 10 years later the Kardashian clan is waxing strong!

In a Hollywood Reporter cover exclusive, the Kardashians tell it all..

In 2007, an L.A. family’s unvarnished docuseries launched on E!, and reality television, female body image, social media and, above all, the economy of celebrity were forever changed. Now the stars and producers of the megafranchise (nine TV spinoffs, hundreds of millions of dollars earned) reveal the secrets of its improbable explosion into the zeitgeist.

HOW THE HELL DID IT HAPPEN?

Kris Jenner (star, executive producer) Before the show, I was managing Bruce’s speaking career and personal appearances.

Kim Kardashian (star, executive producer) I was going to [Pierce College], and after school I would go work the cash register at our store, Dash. This all happened when I was 27 …

Kendall Jenner (star) That’s so crazy because I’m not even 27. We’ve lived the same amount of time of the same thing, but I’m not even the age you were when you started.

Ryan Seacrest (executive producer) Everyone was talking about The Osbournes, and I said to my development executive Eliot [Goldberg], “Let’s try to find something in this world and take it to E!”

Kris One night, Deena Katz [casting director for Dancing With the Stars] came over for dinner and life was swirling around, and she said, “This is a reality show β€” I think you should really talk to Ryan Seacrest.” So I did.

Seacrest Kris told me what she envisioned, and I said, “Let’s send a crew to your house and tape some stuff and then we’ll take a look at it.” Then I realized I didn’t have a crew; I didn’t even have a camera. I had Eliot buy a camera, and he went and shot them. He called me after and said, “I think we have something special.”

Kourtney Kardashian (star, executive producer) We had talked to producers about doing a show about the three of us running the store, Dash, where Khloe and I would do the day-to-day, and Kim would come in as a stylist. It didn’t go anywhere.

The 2 things I have learnt from following the Kardashians 

T.E.A.M (Together Everyone Achieves More)

The one thing the Kardashians have it going and the main reason they a household name is because of the power of numbers! The power of a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). Everyone has a role to play. Their mother is a business savvy woman. It just suffices for a product to have a Kardashian affiliation and it is bound for success.  Kylie cosmetics by  youngest of the pack sells out a collection in no time. 

Diversify your streams of incomes

The show has  had multiple spin offs and everyone is involved in one venture or another!

 

What do you like or don’t like about the Kardashian clan? Have your say!

It’s a wrap…The weekend already started!

Have a good one
