Meet Kylie And Kendall Jenner, The New Faces Of The $65 Million Kardashian Machine

jenners

Much like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian was once met with this criticism repeatedly: she’s famous for doing nothing.

Then, unlike Hilton, Kardashian started doing something.

She kept her nose clean — and got reality shows, endorsements, licensed brands and promotional-appearance contracts.

And she got her whole family in on the act.

Now, both Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are tabloid-movers in their own right — and the family machine (fronted by mumager Kris Jenner) is ready to present its next moneymakers.

They’re systematically inserting Kendall Jenner, 15, and Kylie Jenner, 13, into the spotlight.
