Today’s first family of reality TV brought their small-screen personas to real life Las Vegas last night as the Kardashians invaded Caesars Palace.
The E! reality show royal family paraded down the casino’s red carpet as part of a jubilee of sorts for the dynasty’s most junior princess, Khloe Kardashian.
“There’s nothing better than Vegas,” Kim Kardashian said. “I hadn’t seen my sister since the Miami show finished so we all got a chance to meet up here in Vegas.”
She said that while she and her sisters’ trip was going to be a short one, they were going to make the most of it.
“We ate a good meal at Spago, we’re going to hang out at Pure, and then we’re going to head home (tomorrow),” she said.
The youngest Kardashian sister’s imminent birthday and immediate need to party brought the whole clan to the nightclub: Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian were there, along with their mother, Kris Jenner, brother, Rob Kardashian, and the most famous of the three sisters' famous boyfriend, New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush.
“Pussycat Dolls” founder Robin Antin, actresses Khadijah and Malika Haqq, and Bush’s teammate, Bobby McCray, also came out for the party.
Khloe Kardashian chose a figure-flattering Herve Leger dress for the night, which she paired with black gladiator-style heels.
The “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” stars and their guests got the party started with a public red carpet at 11:30 p.m.
Former reality TV show personality Brittny Gastineau and another New York-based socialite, Jonathan Cheba, joined the party just moments before midnight.
The birthday girl officially turned 25 years old just moments after her arrival inside the club, when the clock stuck 12.
After her notoriously curvaceous sister led the crowd on special birthday countdown, the Pussycat Dolls serenaded the youngest Kardashian sister with a sexy rendition of “Happy Birthday” as a special pink and black birthday cake that was brought out.
Champagne and cocktails soon followed in the Pure VIP as the group continued the celebration for several hours, dancing and drinking away as clubgoers looked on and snapped pictures as they partied alongside reality TV royalty.
