More money, more problems. But you need lots of money to rise to the top of the fame pyramid in the game, and you have to work for at least some of it. Find projects in the quest tab. Check which quests you’re currently engaged in by tapping the check mark box in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Also go here when you complete a quest.


Players get paid for every gig that they complete. Players can also work at the Kardash stores in Calabasas, Miami, and New York.

Players can also become the owner of So Chic in Downtown Los Angeles. All of these will help you earn more money.

Making friends and contacts also helps players get bonuses at their gigs. You can even guess people’s name when you meet them to get experience points.


Pick the tasks with the most stars to rise the fastest. After completing a task, tap on the rewards to collect them right away.

Getting five stars on every job will mean a faster rise to the A-list. The best way to ensure this is make sure your energy is completely full when you start a gig.

You can also invited others to a gig by tapping the blue person icon and then choosing the person. Friends will help you earn more.

Dating, People

Network, network, network. And date. Connecting with people is a great way to rise to fame a lot faster. You can invite in current real-life friends through Facebook and the Game Center. To invite friends through the latter open the Friends tab and tap the + button. The center will only allow 500 friends.

Meet people by walking into new venues such as bars. Add people to your contact list.

To invite someone on a date, go to a venue and click the pink heart icon with the plus sign, then choose the person. Try to always date people that are higher than you on the list.

Like gigs, it’s best to start dates when your energy is full. The goal here is to also get five stars. It’s also good to date the hottest celebrities, especially if the paparazzi take photographs of you and your date.

While at venues, you can get experience points by buying drinks at the bar and also by asking for gossip or tips. On dates, kiss, cuddle, dance, have fancy meals and wine, and flirt to get more hearts.

In general, simply chat with people to earn more points. You can invite people you get to know to future gigs.

Also, avoid getting dumped. If you haven’t gone out on a date with someone for about 24 hours, they’ll start feeling neglected and probably want to dump you. You can avoid this by inviting them on a date–but once they get there, don’t tap their speech bubble. Then you can leave and they won’t be able to dump you.

You can use silver stars to charm industry people that are above you. Silver stars typically aren’t needed to buy clothes.

Note that the way to rise up the list (from E to D, and so on) is to build your fan base. D-listers need 5,000 fans; C-listers need 50,000; B-listers need 500,000; A-listers need 5 million!

Some cheats have been mentioned already in this article but of note is the unlimited energy cheat. 

One of the top cheats is getting unlimited energy, because players usually have to wait for it to be replenished as they go about the game. To get unlimited energy, advance the time on your gadget to speed up the automatic replenishment.

However, it’s a little more complicated because the game has tried to combat players doing this. You actually need to close the game and remove it from the cache. Then you can go to the device settings and move the time up, even for just 30 minutes.

Also, get free money and silver stars 

by watching videos and completing offers. You get $10 per video and 1 silver star per video watched. 

There appears to be a limit on this, to the tune of several videos a day. 

Please leave any other tips below. You can also ask people to connect with you on Game Center by leaving your username.
