In February 2007, a s*x tape made by Kardashian and Ray J in 2003 was leaked. Kardashian filed a lawsuit against Vivid Entertainment, who distributed the film as Kim Kardashian, Superstar. She later dropped the suit and settled for a reported US$5 million, allowing Vivid to release the tape. Several media outlets later criticized her and the family for using the sex tape’s release as a publicity stunt to promote their forthcoming reality show. In October 2007, Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, her step-parent Caitlyn Jenner, her siblings Kourtney, Khloé, and Rob Kardashian, and half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, began to appear in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The series proved successful for E!, and led to the creation of a number of spin-offs, including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. The flagship series concluded in 2021 after 294 episodes.
Kardashian posed in a nude pictorial for the December 2007 issue of Playboy. She made her feature film debut, opposite Carmen Electra, in the disaster film spoof Disaster Movie (2008), in which she appeared as a character named Lisa.In 2008, she was a participant on season seven of Dancing with the Stars, where she was partnered with Mark Ballas.She was the third contestant to be eliminated. In September 2009, Fusion Beauty and Seven Bar Foundation launched “Kiss Away Poverty”, with Kardashian as the face of the campaign. For each LipFusion lipgloss sold, US$1 went to the Foundation to fund women entrepreneurs in the United States. In October, she launched her first fragrance, self-titled “Kim Kardashian”. That year, she also released a workout DVD series, became a guest host–judge of WrestleMania XXIV on America’s Next Top Model, and guest-starred in How I Met Your Mother, Beyond the Break and CBS’s CSI: NY.
Kardashian appeared on the cover and in a pictorial in Paper’s winter 2014 issue, photographed by Jean-Paul Goude. On the cover, her nude buttocks are featured above the caption: “Break the Internet”, which generated considerable comment in both social and traditional media. However, the stunt “set a new benchmark” in social media response and Paper’s website received 15.9 million views in one day, compared with 25,000 views on an average day.
