So just how did this family become so famous? Well, take a trip down memory lane and discover how the Kardashians became America’s most famous family.
1. Where It All Began
The Kardashians didn’t just show up one day out of nowhere and take over your television screen. Their family was making headlines long before you knew who they were, but not for the reasons you may think.
The first famous Kardashian was actually ex-husband of Kris, Robert Kardashian, who served as OJ Simpson’s defense attorney during his murder trial. Kris and Robert called it quits in 1991, but not before the stage was set for the Kardashians to become a household name.
