Humorous Banter with Her Mother

A Decade in the Limelight

The show has since transitioned to Hulu under the title “The Kardashians.” Despite her long-standing presence in the limelight, Kardashian expressed her desire to explore new avenues and seek fulfillment beyond the world of entertainment.
Influence of Her Father
Kardashian revealed that her late father, Robert Kardashian, a prominent lawyer known for his involvement in the O.J. Simpson trial, had frequently discussed her potential as an attorney.
He even promised her a financial allowance if she pursued her education. However, at the time, Kardashian opted for financial independence over completing her studies.
The reality star emphasized the significance of the opportunity she has now to pursue a legal career.
She expressed her gratitude for the experience and the ability to apply her newfound knowledge on a daily basis.

A Turning Point in Criminal Justice Reform
Kardashian credited her involvement in securing the release of Alice Johnson, a grandmother sentenced to life in prison for a drug trafficking conviction in 1996, as a pivotal moment in her life.
Collaborating with President Trump’s White House five years ago to bring about Johnson’s freedom exposed Kardashian to the flaws within the justice system.
This eye-opening experience ignited her determination to make a difference and help others in need within the criminal justice system.
