after filming her sexploits with her ex, Whitney Houston’s reported new beau Ray J.A raunchy tape featuring the former couple engaged in various sex acts. And it is HOT as! Back in February 2007, At the time, it was like, “who the hell is Kim Kardashian and why should I care if she has a sex tape?” But what better way to become famous than to release a sex tape? Hey, it worked for her best friend Paris Hilton. And the 2 million that she was offered is peanuts. That’s probably her weekly allowance. I have no doubt in my mind that we will see this tape; Kim is pretty much promoted the damn thing by talking about it all the time. She said, “Ray J and I remain friends, and there is nothing he would do to spite me.” Who gives a shit, the girl’s got big cans. thank fuck they’re filmed well! Oh, and there’s some little golden shower action – not taking the piss or anything!
In February 2007, a pornographic home video he made with Kim Kardashian was "leaked". Kardashian sued Vivid Entertainment for ownership of the tape. In late April 2007, Kardashian dropped the suit and settled with Vivid Entertainment for $5 million for the the sex tape Kim Kardashian denied, but later admitted to. This is the tape she made with Brandy's brother, Ray-J.
Having not succeeded adequately the first time, Kim Kardashian tried again in the style sector, but put her attention toward closet arrangements rather than specific wardrobe choices. Her job was to renovate closet space and find ways to better organize the clothing of her clients. After getting good results from revamping the storage space of boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard's wife, Bernadette, Kardashian took a shot at redoing Paris Hilton's clothing collection. Apart from the fact that Hilton's clothing was so extensive that it required the space of a fully-modified bedroom rather than a regular-size closet, Kim's work was well-received. Among Los Angeles socialites, she was more popular around town, but her overall celebrity influence was inconsequential.
The relationships between Kardashian and blues musician Ray J changed her level of fame quickly and substantially. In 2007, adult film giant Vivid released a sex tape that they had filmed together. While the two principals claimed that the sex tape was never intended for public audiences, it provided an immediate jump-start to Kardashian's career, making her an immediate internet fixture and being perfectly timed to coincide with a spread in the December 2007 issue of Playboy and the launch of her new reality TV series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The show, which followed her and her family members through the maintaining of their store, D-A-S-H, and their various personal challenges, became a favorite of female viewers while offering more views of the woman who had caught so much male attention from her sexcapades of earlier.

TMZ has learned.We spoke with Vivid Entertainment top banana Steve Hirsch ... who tells us he HAS made contact with the lawyer who's representing the mystery party interested in buying the rights to the sex tape ... and he's open to the possibility of a deal.

"I used to say my prayers before bed and pray I would stop developing," she tells Playboy. With time, Kardashian grows confidence in her curves: "I always laugh when it says on the Internet that I have fake boobs or butt implants or injected lips, because it's so not true."

While rumors of a sex tape involving Kardashian and ex-boyfriend Ray J swirl, Kardashian denies any such tape exists. "There is no amount of money that could ever convince me to release any tape, even if I had one," she tells Complex. But the tape eventually surfaces on the Internet, and Kardashian sues Vivid Entertainment to suppress its distribution, saying, "It would humiliate me and ruin my family." By April, Kardashian settles with Vivid to distribute the tape.
Kardashian gets her own E! reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which documents her career and family life, with sisters Khloé and Kourtney, momager Kris, and stepdad Bruce Jenner.

Kardashian begins dating New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush. "I'm not really a sports girl," Kardashian tell the AP. "But I sit with all the wives and they know everything and I don't so they are teaching me, and I'm learning a lot about it, so I'm loving it." They split in July 2009, before reuniting after Khloé's wedding that September.
Kardashian appears on the cover of Playboy – and bares all inside. "Of course you're nervous and want more time to work out. But I'm proud to show people who I am," she tells Men's Fitness about the shoot. "You always see the typical skinny models and I'm not that and I'm proud not to be that."
