(Watchdog Report) – “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” debuted in 2007. The series followed the family — the Kardashians and the Jenners — for over 14 years. Throughout the series’ reign, many critics said the cast, specifically sisters Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie, were famous for nothing. While the criticism initially bothered them, they took the world by storm and created empires that have them proving their naysayers wrong.
The most profitable of the businesses — shapewear company Skims — is run by none other than Kim Kardashian. She started the company in 2019, just before the pandemic, yet that failed to dim its popularity. Skims grew in spades and is now a billion-dollar business.
Skims, Kim Kardashian West’s shapewear brand, has become a billion-dollar business.
The success of the company, even as shoppers shifted to looser-fitting clothes during lockdowns, has cemented the star’s status as a billionaire in her own right.https://t.co/ojxsJ2EXv2

Kylie Jenner is the next biggest success with her company Kylie Cosmetics, which she launched in 2015. Its most popular product is the Lip Kits, which include a liner and lipstick or gloss. She’s no longer the majority owner of the company, having sold 51% of its share to Coty, but that hasn’t dimmed the company’s success. It’s worth an estimated $600 million as of 2022.
The other sisters aren’t doing too shabbily themselves, either. They all run multi-million dollar companies. Kourtney has made money with Poosh — a website that promotes “a modern lifestyle” — while Khloe runs a denim company, Good American. Likewise, Kendall has a tequila brand, 818, that sold more than 100,000 cases in its debut year.
The Kardashians and Jenners might have started out as a scripted reality TV series, but each of the stars of the show seems to have found their own way.
