THE KARDASHIANS 

The Kardashians' empire is now said to be well over $1 billion. In addition to the family's long running reality show, Kris Jenner's offspring is raking in the cash through their famous apps, merchandise, beauty and cosmetic lines, emojis and social media sales. Kim alone charges up to R6,5 million for an Instagram post.

THE JACKSONS

They are not regulars in the spotlight anymore, but the Jacksons are still considered the music industry's biggest family. Following the success of the Jackson 5, which consisted of all the male siblings, some of the biggest musical careers came out. Micheal Jackson, Janet Jackson, and a few respectable attempts from the others.

THE SMITHS

Will Smith has had his day as one of Hollywood's leading men. Jada Pinket Smith held her own as one of the most succesful African American actresses at the start of the century. These days, however, it's his kids Jaden Smith and Willow who have ascended to A list status. They are both movie stars, performing artists and famous fashion influencers. That said, the whole family consists of A-listers who are doing their own thing. Everyone is insanely famous, rich and successful.

THE OSBOURNES

This British family basically invented celebrity family reality TV. Way before the Kardashians were a thing, the Osbournes were already making a killing with the show. And although it all started with the dad - Ozzy Osbourne being the rock star, Sharon, Kelly, and to a much lesser extant Jack, have all proceeded to maintain thriving careers in music, reality TV and other things famous people do to get even more famous. 

THE KNOWLES 

While sisters Beyonc√© and Solange are global megastars, thanks to their huge music careers,  their parents - Tina and  Mathew have not exactly one their best to lay under the spotlight. In fact, they have also benefited a lot from their daughters' success, with clothing lines, TV appearances and, we bet, VIP access to any party.
