Scandal: Kim's 'accidental' sex tape leak had paved way for 'KUWTK'
KUWTK, a pioneer in the reality shows vertical could have never happened without the accidental leak of Kim Kardashian's sex tape with former boyfriend and singer Ray J, who is the first cousin of hip hop legend Snoop Dogg.
That sex tape gave unprecedented attention to Kim, and her mother Kris Jenner approached E! to make a show out of her family's lives.
Script: The show eventually made the family famous and rich
Since then, KUWTK has given a sneak-peek into the real and often scripted drama between the Jenner and Kardashian step-sisters.
From excited teenagers to corporate socialites, the show led to a fame explosion for the sisters, many of whom are racing for the billionaire spot through pricey social media appearances, fashion endorsements and their own product lines ranging from denim, cosmetics to homeware.
