Say, if you have no idea who Kourtney Kardashian is, we envy you greatly. The daughter of the late celebrity attorney Robert Kardashian (who helped O.J. get away with murder), she and her famous siblings are the subject of the E! network’s reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is set to end this year after 20 seasons. While you might have been following Kourtney’s life since 2007, we know you’re dying to learn more about her world including the pre-KUWK days. Lucky for you, we’ve got a scoop that is going to win us a whole lot of Peabody Awards. So without further ado, here is Kourtney Kardashian through the years.
Once upon a time, Caitlyn Jenner was still a man named Bruce and Kourtney (to the left of him) was part of a rich, privileged family that didn’t yet have a reality show. Dark times indeed. Here they’re dressed up in what is known as the Canadian tuxedo — clad in denim from top to bottom.
Here’s Kourtney (second from the left) with her siblings Khloe, Kim and Robert, along with mother Kris and stepfather Bruce Jenner.
Keeping Up With the Kardashians was still 5 years away from airing, but it didn’t stop Kourtney from doing all of the fancy things that young socialites do, such as attending fashion show afterparties while carrying around a handbag that probably costs as much as a luxury car.
Here’s something that will no doubt blow your mind: Keeping Up With the Kardashians wasn’t Kourtney’s first try at a reality show. In the late summer of 2005, she appeared on the E! network’s Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, which followed the zany antics of rich kids (including the children of George Foreman and Robert Blake) working on a cattle ranch. You know, just like what we regular yokels do all the time!
When you live a busy, posh life doing whatever it is Kourtney actually does for a living, you need time to unwind. So why not show off your dancing skills at the Playstation 3 launch party while in the company of your sister Kim and the Human Trainwreck that is Lindsay Lohan? Kourtney and Lindsay were frenemies at one time and perhaps that’s still the case? Who knows. Who cares.
Kourtney attending yet another fashion show afterparty, this time dressed as a big wad of chewed bubble gum. Those earrings probably cost as much as a three-bedroom home in the suburbs of Chicago.
One of the most common questions that get asked is, “Where were you on October 14, 2007, the day KUWK aired for the first time?” If your name is Kourtney Kardashian, the answer is, “Attending a launch party to mark the occasion. Duh.”
