THE KARDASHIANS by Jerry Oppenheimer

From the New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich, comes a blockbuster unauthorized biography of one of the most famous and ubiquitous family dynasties in contemporary culture.

Secrets and scandals of the Kardashians, so closely held that not even hard core fans have heard about them, are finally exposed in New York Times bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer’s forensic dissection of the infamous reality TV clan. From the curious life of patriarch Robert Kardashian, whose family meatpacking business was tainted by scandal, to “momager” Kris Jenner’s top-secret plan for the future, The Kardashians reveals the untold, definitive story based on two years of investigative reporting and scores of candid, on-the-record interviews, ranging from childhood friends to powerful business associates, who break their silence for the first time.

In the decade since the Kardashians first appeared on the scene, millions of speculative words have been written about their drama-filled lives. But most has been tabloid hype and gossip column fantasy. Until now.

Oppenheimer has written revelatory books on such international icons as the Clintons, the Kennedys, the Hiltons and more, and now comes The Kardashians, the true story that will make headlines and shock even the most loyal fans.

Jerry Oppenheimer is the New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Rich: Power, Scandal, and Tragedy Inside the Johnson & Johnson Dynasty, as well as unauthorized biographies of Hillary and Bill Clinton, Anna Wintour, Rock Hudson, Martha Stewart, Barbara Walters, Ethel Kennedy, Jerry Seinfeld, and the Hilton family. He has also worked in several different capacities as a journalist, including as an investigative reporter and a producer of television news programs and documentaries.

Praise for The Kardashians:

“Oppenheimer, who has written unauthorized biographies of the Clintons, the Kennedys, and Martha Stewart, directs his lacerating attention on the Kardashians . . . Few in the family’s orbit are spared a takedown . . . those looking for a trashy late-summer read will find many juicy tidbits to feed their appetites.” —Publishers Weekly

“The author delivers with the origin story of the infamous crew. Anyone who has wondered how this ‘dysfunctional family with little to no discernible talent besides self-promotion’ became a cultural phenomenon will enjoy Oppenheimer’s take. . . . The book concludes with an overview of the current clan’s net worth and doings as well as a chilling prediction of what’s next for the ever ambitious Kris Kardashian Jenner: a run for the White House and the ultimate ratings grab.” —Kirkus

“Oppenheimer, known for unauthorized biographies and exposés about pop-culture’s biggest stars, dishes the dirt on the Kardashian family . . . well-researched and well-documented . . . anyone who watches the Kardashians’ TV show, subscribes to their tweets, and devours the tabloids will find just what they’re seeking and love every minute of it.” —Booklist

“You probably thinkyou know everything there is to know about Kim Kardashian and her siblings. But there is a little-known prequel—the twisted story of her parents Robert and Kris’ tempestuous marriage, whichwas marked by rampant philandering and scandal.” —New York Post
