Were they famous before their reality TV show, or was it the show that made them well known.

Their father was OJ Simpsons lawyer.

I think KIm became famous and then got the TV show.

Brandy's younger brother and failed pop star turned reality dating show "star" Ray J made a porno tape with Kim Kardashian, at the time one of Paris Hilton's inner circle of close friends. She parlayed that exposure into a reality show featuring her family and stepdad Bruce Jenner, former American track and field star. They've been making reality shows and producing them ever since.

Also the late Johnny Cochrane was OJ's lawyer. How the hell does that sound anything like Kardashian? He was OJ's friend but not his lawyer. You clearly don't know what you are talking about.

It all started with their Father, the late Robert Kardashian who was a lawyer and good friend of accused double murderer, O.J. Simpson. Robert stood by his friend in the court room daily, and admitted after the trial, it was the biggest mistake of his life, feeling he had been duped!

Robert was a successful busines lawyer and socialite and he owned "Movie Tunes" which was a very successful company that previewed new music before films were played in American cinemas. His children got involved with that company and Kim began her own business as a teen, reselling very expensive designer clothes and so on, in her own version of EBAY she turned into an actual store! Robert passed away but even before that, Robert and the Mother of the Kardashians divorced and Kris (The Mother) remarried famous Olympian Bruce Jenner.

Kim began to get famous for a sex tape that roamed around and that was one of her biggest claims to fame. Someone offered the family a reality show, and the rest is history. Jenner's son Brody, formerly starred on the reality show "The Hills." People seem to like to watch celebrities who are famous for basically doing nothing!

Dad got O.J. off

Kim copied other well known socialite, Paris, and made a sex tape.

That's literally it.

It was an entire legal team who helped O.J. get away with double murder, until the civil trial where he was found liable for the murders. Bob Kardashian was not the star, Johnny Cochran and Barry Sheck did most of the work with help from F. Lee Bailey. Robert Kardashian was very successful in the music biz and that's how Kim even met any of these famous people.

Robert Kardashian with the skunk streaked hair, stood by O.J. everyday in court.

Take a look:

Just another example of the world's obsession with pointless non-celebrity celebrities.

I only opened this thread to find out who these people are.

Am I right in saying that they are rather like many others in that they are famous for being famous?

RTV has got a helluvalot to answer for.

He was a character witness and assisted his team initially in putting their defense together but he didn't represent him, Cochrane did. If you want to take him reading a speech on OJ's behalf when he didn't turn himself in as representing him, I'll give you that, but Cochrane was OJ's actual appointed legal representative. You seem to be confusing the issue here by not clarifying the details as I have done but my point stands, Kardashian didn't represent OJ.

... Kardashian didn't represent OJ.
Well, he reactivated his license and did in fact represent OJ as an attorney on his defence team. I dunno how you can dispute that. It's a well documented fact.

Very sorry, Robert Kardashian was a defense attorney for O.J. not a character witness. In fact, he was standing with the defense team when the verdict was read and he looked totally shocked O.J. got acquitted. This is a list of his defense lawyers from Wiki:

Simpson had hired a team of high-profile lawyers, including F. Lee Bailey, Robert Shapiro, Alan Dershowitz, Robert Kardashian, Gerald Uelmen (the dean of law at Santa Clara University), Carl E. Douglas and Johnnie Cochran. Attorneys specializing in DNA evidence, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, were hired to attempt to discredit the prosecution's DNA evidence,[7] and they argued that Simpson was the victim of police fraud and what they termed as sloppy internal procedures that contaminated the DNA evidence.[12]

Here is a link to the whole article:

Absolutely true, he was working in the music industry and he had to reactive his license.

In America, the Kardashians were already heard of due to the O.J. coverage. You must remember Kris Jenner was in fact a very close friend of Nicole Brown Simpon's and was interviewed following the murders many times. She was suppose to have lunch with Nicole the day the bodies were found! She was absolutely devastated and claimed she could not get out of bed for weeks. She believed O.J. murdered her friend and her ex-husband Robert, was working for O.J.'s defense which caused tension in the family. That's where the Mother and Father first got in the news. Kim did get famous for the sex tape, even past her association with Paris Hilton.
