I am planning a new series of posts, called "Who is...". They will be short bios about people who are making news. Some of the people may be people you know, and some may be people that you don't know. A list of names that comes to mind right now is Paris Hilton, Brandon Davis, Graydon Carter, Anna Wintour and others as the ideas come to me. If you are a reader of my blog have any that you would like me to cover in this section please leave a comment with that persons name. The bio will cover, who they are, what makes them famous, and what they are doing now.
Some people think I have an obsession with Paris Hilton, and that really isn't true, anymore. She is interesting to me, and I am looking forward to detailing a little about her life when it comes time to do her entry. My first post is going to be about someone else though. It took a lot of thought for me to know who was the first person to put this together for, and the choice is Kim Kardashian. She is a friend of Paris Hilton's. In fact there are a number of people who will be covered that are friends of Miss Hilton, and as such I may wait to do the Hilton entry until later in the series.
Kimberly Noel Kardashian is the socialite daughter of Robert Kardashian. Her father is best known for being one of the lawyers in the dream team of lawyers that defended OJ Simpson in his murder trial. She has a large number of siblings, three full siblings, two half siblings and five step siblings with step father Bruce Jenner. According to Wikipedia she is of Armenian decent through her father Robert Kardashian.
Her sister, Kourtney, has been on the reality show, "filthy Rich: Cattle Drive" and currently owns a childrens clothing store in Calabasa, California. While she has been in a musical video for "Fall Out Boy", like her friend Paris Hilton, she may come to be more well known for her porn tape with her boy friend at the time, Ray J. She has filed legal motions to block the distribution of the tape, but as many stars have found more and more once it is out of the box, it can't be controlled.
Her father passed away from esophageal cancer Sept 30th, 2003. While there were times when things were strained between Mr. Kardashian and Mr. Simpson after the trial, OJ said that Robert, who had been a long-time friend, was there for him when he needed him.
While she is best known for her connection with Paris Hitlon, she has had a number of relationships with other celebrities. She was rumour to have dated Nick Lachey, and was married to R&B producer Damon Thomas for four years, according to askmen.com, from 2000 to 2004.
