Kourtney Kardashian Career:
Kardashian initially gained attention from reality television viewers on the 2005 show Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, when she raised funds for charity. Kim Kardashian, Superstar, a sex tape filmed by her sister Kim and her boyfriend Ray J in 2003, was released in February 2007, substantially contributing to her ascent to fame.
Later that year, Kardashian was cast in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians alongside her mother Kris, stepfather Bruce (now Caitlyn Jenner), siblings Kim, Khloé, and Rob, and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie. The series was a success for E!, the network that broadcasts it, and it spawned multiple spin-offs, including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Khloé& Lamar, and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
On March 28, 2011, Kardashian made her acting debut as attorney Kassandra Kavanaugh in an episode of the ABC serial opera One Life to Live. Kardashian, who grew up watching the soap opera and hailed her presence as the fulfillment of a dream, “I’d imagined I’d only get two lines,” she said of her acting debut, a “lifelong dream.” But my writing is quite lengthy… I’m not an actress.” Critics were not impressed with her performance. Dollhouse, a novel she co-wrote with sisters Khloe and Kim, was released in November 2011.
Kardashian and her sisters also represent the PerfectSkin skincare line, which was created by Dr. Ron DiSalvo for Perfect Science Labs. In March 2010, the three sisters also produced a 20-piece jewelry line for the firm Virgins, Saints, and Angels. Their Armenian ancestry is reflected in the jewelry. Kardashian debuted her first solo fashion collection in 2017 as part of a collaboration with the website PrettyLittleThing.
The 32-piece collection was inspired by Studio 54, classic Hollywood cinema, and the 1970s, according to the website. In 2018, she and her sisters supported Calvin Klein. In the same year, she collaborated with her younger half-sister Kylie to establish Kylie Cosmetics, a collection of lipsticks and palettes.
On March 5, 2019, Kardashian launched her lifestyle website Poosh.
