Kim Kardashian Gets Reality Show

Hollywood gossip blog favorite Kim Kardashian continues to follow in best pal Paris Hilton's footsteps, this time with her own reality TV show.

The E! Network announced Wednesday that it will air a "new non-scripted family sitcom" about Kardashian and her alliteratively-named family members, to be produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and "Simple Life" producers Bunim-Murray Productions.

The series will follow the adventures of Kim; her two sisters, Kourtney, 28, and Khloe, 23; and half-sisters Kendall, 11, and Kylie, 9.

The three eldest siblings are the children of celebrity lawyer Robert Kardashian and Kim's mother-manager, Kris. The two younger girls are the children of Kris and her second husband, Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner.

E! describes Kim Kardashian as "a successful entrepreneur, model and actress whose star is shining brighter than ever." Like Hilton, Kardashian is famous for being famous, earning great notoriety when a sex tape of her and Brandy's little brother, Ray-J, was distributed by Vivid Video. Kardashian won a multimillion-dollar suit against the porn company.

"At the heart of this series, despite the cat fights and endless sarcasm, is a family that truly loves and supports one another," Seacrest said in a statement. "The familiar dynamics of this family make them one Hollywood bunch that is sure to entertain."
