Where would Kim Kardashian be without the sex tape
These days Kim Kardashian is better known as Kanye West’s baby mother and fiancée. Before that she was and to be fair is still known for her short marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries. Type her name into Google and the results are endless. Her description in her Wikipedia profile is “American tv personality, fashion designer, model and actress”. Sorry, actress? Loooool. That’s a polite way of referring to her sex tape I guess.
Pointless trivia we have all come to know is that Kim K made a sex tape with her then boyfriend Ray J. Many of us have probably watched this online somewhere. Nowadays she has an ongoing reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” running on its eighth season. I was watching an episode and my mum asked me, why is she so rich and famous? I couldn’t bring myself to tell her it was from a leaked sex tape many years ago.
So a question that many of us wonder is where would Kim Kardashian be without the sex tape? I have no doubts her name would still be known.
Lets look at her possible occupations:
A well-known video girl
A singer? (Lol)
A Basketball wife
A reality star
You gotta give it to the girl, we would all be lying and denying Kim and her assets credit if we didn’t admit that she has done well with her sex tape. It got her on the map and her foot in the doorway to stardom. After her leaked sex tape it all pretty much came easily to her and now whether we like to admit it or not she is a household name.
Kim Kardashian’s fame is like a magical illusion, we don’t know where she came from how she got here but we do know she’s not falling off any time soon. Kim played a smart move in keeping her name relevant, she introduced us to her family who to be fair are way more charismatic and have more personality than her. Now each member of her family are now well known in their own right, albeit because of her name.

Having looked at her timeline the girl is successful, she got in to the scene via her then BFF Paris Hilton, which not many of us know about, her father was a lawyer for one of the most controversial court cases making the family name a familiar one. Her and her sisters opened their own boutique store before the sex tape actually got leaked so I guess it shows that Kim was heading somewhere before the tape blew her up and made her even bigger.
