Imagine the most famous families in the world. Who are you picturing? Are you still fawning over Prince Harry and the Royal Family? Are you thinking about past U.S. presidents like Bill Clinton and his family or are you picturing current President Donald Trump and his? While everyone might have their own list of these families, there's one family that we're sure is starring on every single list - the Kardashians.
The Kardashian name came into the spotlight in the mid-1990s when patriarch Robert Kardashian became part of O. J. Simpson's defense team. While that trial carried the family name for around a decade, soon momager Kris Jenner began cultivating careers and avenues for her four children. Soon, the family would rise to notoriety with the fame of middle sister, Kim Kardashian. As an assistant to Paris Hilton, she would soon surpass the fame of her employer. Then 2007 would bring the coming of the family's reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" which was aired and continues to be aired on E! After spending over a decade of their lives in the spotlight, Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob have become household names.
