You already know the Kardashians, even if you don’t want to. LA-based Robert Kardashian — third-generation Armenian and famed defence attorney of O. J. Simpson — married Kris Houghton — eventual matriarch and media mastermind — in 1978 and the couple produced three daughters and one son: Kourtney, Kimberly, Robert and Khloe
. After they divorced, Kris married Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, resulting in daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In 2003 Kim Kardashian began shadowing pop culture princess Paris Hilton, often appearing in the background of Paris’ paparazzi photos. In 2007 Kim’s sex tape with Ray J leaked, firing her name to the top of Google search. Not long after, her reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians
debuted on E!
