If you don’t know who the Kardashians are, then we aren’t sure how you even landed on this channel. It’s the last name known around the world, but have you ever stopped to wonder, “Why?” Would you believe their rise to fame has been decades in the making? Don’t believe us? We will show you how. Watch this video as we attempt to clear up the confusing reasons the Kardashians became famous. Many of our viewers may not have been around during the O.J. Simpson trial, but it was back then, in 1994, that the world heard their last name for the first time. Thanks to the patriarch of the family, Robert Kardashian, the Kardashians had their name in headlines. This may have been just the seed Kris Jenner needed to get her family to mega-star status. How did she do this? You’ll have to watch the video to see.
