Kim Kardashian, Keeping Up with the Kardashians
If Keeping Up with the Kardashians (Sundays at 10 pm/ET, E!) is the Brady Bunch of reality shows, Kim Kardashian is the Marcia. Sexy, self-assured and totally sweet, the Beverly Hills bombshell-slash-stylist with the famous friends and to-die-for derriere has weathered her share of scandals. Yet she's still thrilled to be letting it all hang out as the cameras capture her blended family in action for this Sunday's Season 2 premiere.
TV Guide: Unlike some of your pals, such as Paris and Nicole, you aren't really known as a party girl. Kim Kardashian: Surprisingly, I'm not the biggest partyer. For me, going out is about dressing up. I love the whole go-to-dinner, hang-out-with-my-friends part. And I'm not a big drinker, so if it's going to be one of those nights, I have to be prepared. [Laughs]
