As documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the November 12, 2007 episode entitled "Remembering Dad,"[8] Kardashian was arrested for driving under the influence.[5] The show did not capture the actual incident, but was a reenactment.[9] The show suggested that Kardashian's actions were the result of her difficulties coping with the anniversary of her father's death.[10]

On July 18, 2008, Kardashian reported to jail to serve time for violation of probation for her DUI incident. She faced a sentence of up to 30 days and enrollment in an alcohol treatment program within three weeks of her release from jail. She was released from jail less than three hours later due to overcrowding.[11] In an interview with PR.com after her DUI arrest, Kardashian stated, "I’m still grateful that this happened to me, because I’m the one that gets to now really teach my family. I’ve learned a lot and now I’m always the advocate to my friends."[12]

The season began airing in early 2009.[14] Each celebrity will compete to raise money for their favorite charity; Kardashian's is the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness.[15] Khloe was Project Manager for the 2nd task of the season, and she led her team to victory earning $20,000 for her charity. Kardashian was fired in the 6th episode for earning a DUI which Donald Trump was unaware of until a recent project.

In April 2009, both Kourtney and Khloe announced that they get their own reality TV spin-off, which will follow their move to launch a Dash store in Miami, Florida. The series, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, will debut on E! in August 2009[16].
