Kim was born in Texas, but she has done quite a bit of moving during her lifetime. According to The List, Kim said, “We moved 16 times before I went to college.

2. She Owned A Bridal Shop
Being an entrepreneur is something that Kim has always envisioned for herself, and she has accomplished that goal more than once over the years.

But I would not go back, and I had a real moment of clarity about that.”
