The Kardashians have totally taken television programming by storm and for those who have been living underneath a rock, it's about time you turn on your television sets. Their reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians
has not only catapulted amateur porn star Kim Kardashian
to stardom, but also made her entire family a household name. In the reality show, we not only saw the various sides to Kim, but also got to know her trendy sisters Kourtney
, and her parents Kris Jenner
, the former wife of the late Robert Kardashian, and Bruce Jenner
, a former Olympic athlete.
Right now, there's no stopping the Kardashians as they rise to fame with the success of their reality show. In fact, they're set to appear on this Friday's E! True Hollywood Story
. To gear up for their ultimate documentary however, they've sat down with talk show host Larry King, to give us a taste of what's to come on Friday, April 4th at 9pm.
Last Friday, the Kardashians visited the CNN studios for their guest appearance on Larry King Live
, where they talked about relationships, their growing popularity and of course, Kim Kardashian's claim to fame.
"Of course you're ashamed of that, I have my whole family that is now thrust into this drama, and it's all my fault," Kim replied when asked about her controversial sex tape with rapper Ray J. "I have little sisters that I have to answer to and explain things to. You know kids hear things at school."
King also asked step-dad Bruce's opinion on the matter, to which Bruce replied, "I was really ticked off, to be honest with you. It wasn't Kimberly's fault for even doing the video in the first place. It was a very personal thing."
When it comes to personal things, the Kardashians are very private indeed. In fact, some of them were quite hesitant about the reality show at first.
"I feel like we're more private at a time," Khloe admitted. "I was probably the most doubtful, I would say, out of everyone. Just because I'm like a business woman. I like to run my stores and kind of keep to myself."
However, it was the family bond which led her to realize that they were all in it together.
"I felt like if one person in the family was doing it, we all had to do it," Khloe said.
Kim, on the other hand, was all green lights when it came to the idea of making a reality show. Like her mother, Kim likes to bask in the limelight, and when asked if she was in favor of the reality series, Kim definitely agreed.
"I wanted people to see what we were really like, instead of what people thought and different stereotypes," Kim said about how the reality show has portrayed her family. "I think it definitely put an end to all that."
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
has surprisingly left us entertained for the past couple of seasons, and King couldn't avoid pointing out the success of the show.
"It's shocking to me," Bruce admitted. But when it came down to the intriguing factor of the show, he said, "Do we have a lot of drama, are a lot of things happening? Yes there are. But, you now, in the end, it always comes out that we are a strong family, a bonded family, a loving family and we always make up at the end."
To catch more of the crazy Kardashians, tune in every Sunday at 10/9c on E! and don't forget to catch their E! True Hollywood Story
airing this Friday at 9pm.
