2004–08: Career beginnings
Kourtney first became known to reality-television
audiences on the 2004 series, Filthy Rich: Cattle
Drive, on which she earned money for charity. In
February 2007, a sex tape made by her sister
Kim and Kim's former boyfriend Ray J in 2003
was leaked, which largely contributed to the rise
to prominence of Kourtney and her siblings and
parents. [11][12] Later that year, Kourtney, in
addition to her mother Kris; her step-father
Bruce; her siblings Kim, Khloé, and Rob; and
half-sisters Kendall and Kylie were commissioned
to star in the reality television series Keeping Up
with the Kardashians . [13] The series proved
successful for E! , the network on which it is
broadcast, and lead to several spin-offs ,
including Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami , Khloé &
Lamar , and Kourtney and Kim Take New York . [14]
Kourtney and her mother opened children's
clothing boutiques called Smooch in the Los
Angeles area and New York City; the boutiques
carry the brand Crib Rock Couture. With sisters
Kim and Khloe, Kardashian co-owns and operates
D-A-S-H, a clothing boutique in Los Angeles,
Miami, New York City, and the Hamptons. [10]
2009–present: International Success
In the spring of 2010, Kourtney and her sisters
released a clothing line for Bebe . [15][16][17] In
August 2010, Kourtney announced that she and
her sisters were working on another clothing line
called K-Dash, sold on QVC. [18] Kardashian and
her sisters created a sunless tanner called
Kardashian Glamour Tan in 2010. [19][20]
Kardashian wrote the book "Kardashian
Konfidential" with her sisters Khloe and Kim; it
was released in November 2010. [21]
Kourtney made her acting debut with a guest
appearance on the ABC soap One Life to Live on
March 28, 2011, appearing as attorney Kassandra
Kavanaugh. [22] Kardashian, who had grown up
watching the soap opera and described her
appearance as the realization of a "lifelong
dream", had reservations about her acting debut,
stating: "I'd thought I'd have two lines. But my
script is so long ... I'm not an actress." [23][24]
Her performance was not met with positive
reviews from critics. [25] In September 2012, she
and younger sister Kim created another spinoff
reality television series, Kourtney and Kim Take
Miami , which began airing in January 2013. It
features their mother Kris Jenner and sister
Khloé Kardashian . [26]
Kourtney with her sisters Khloe and Kim are
spokeswomen for the diet supplement Quick
Trim, for weight loss. [27][28] In March 2012,
Kardashian and her sisters Kim and Khloe were
named in a $5 million class action lawsuit
against QuickTrim. [29] The complaint, filed in the
United States District Court for the Southern
District of New York
, accused the Kardashians, along with
QuickTrim's manufacturer, Windmill Health
Products; the retailer GNC; and others in the
sales and marketing chain, of false and
deceptive marketing. The plaintiffs, from several
states, brought claims under their respective
states' consumer protection laws. [30]
Kardashian also represents the skincare line
"PerfectSkin" with her sisters, which was
developed by Dr. Ron DiSalvo for Perfect Science
Labs. [31] The three sisters also released a 20-
piece collection of jewelry line for the company
Virgins, Saints, and Angels, in March 2010. The
jewelry is reflective of the Kardashians'
Armenian heritage. [32]
Personal life
Kourtney began dating Scott Disick in 2006, when
they met at friend Joe Francis's house party in
Mexico. The couple have had an on-again, off-
again relationship , all throughout the filming of
the show. Kourtney gave birth to their son,
Mason Dash Disick, on December 14, 2009.
Mason's birth was filmed and aired during the
4th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians .
[33]
In early 2010, the couple temporarily moved to
Miami with their son and Kourtney's sister, Kim.
During this time, Kourtney believed Disick had an
alcohol problem. After regularly attending
therapy and temporarily giving up alcohol, Disick
and Kourtney reconciled and they continued their
relationship in mid-2010. [34]
In 2011, during the final episode in the first
season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Disick
purchased an engagement ring and planned to
propose to Kourtney during an evening meal in
New York City. However when Disick asked
Kourtney's opinion on marriage she said that she
responded with "if things are so good now... why
would we want to change that?", so he did not
propose. [35] On July 8, 2012, Kourtney gave birth
to their their second child, a daughter, Penelope
Scotland Disick. [36]
In June 2014, it was announced that the couple
