The mogul is known for taking 10% from each of her clients (a. k. a. children), whether it’s modeling, licensing deals or their respected individual beauty and fashion companies.

Cable Network, told Cosmopolitan in a 2015 interview that he was scouting a family to make a reality show inspired by MTV’s “The Osbournes.” A cameraman did a trial taping at a Sunday barbeque in Jenner’s backyard, and the rest is history. 

The show won several People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and MTV Music & TV Awards and changed the way society viewed reality television.

There were a number of spin-off series before the show ended after fourteen years on the air. The show finished its 20th season on June 20 and was one of the longest-running reality shows in history, according to Newsweek.
