For years, Malika Haqq and her twin sister Khadijah Haqq McCray have orbited around the huge gravitational pull that is the Kardashians…occasionally popping up on camera in the family’s various E! reality shows.
This fall, the siblings will finally take center stage on yet another Kardashian spinoff, “Dash Dolls.”
The eight-episode, hour long series will follow the lives of workers at Dash boutiques, owned by the sisters’ best friend Khloe Kardashian along with her famous siblings Kim and Kourtney.
“We’ve literally been family friends with the Kardashians for almost 17 years,” Malika told us last week at the TCA Press Tour in Beverly Hills, where both sisters were on hand to discuss the series. “Khadijah and I have been best friends with Khloe since we were basically kids. We’ve grown up around them before there were even cameras.”
Below, Malika explains what it’s been like to have a ringside seat as the family’s popularity took off:
“Dash Dolls,” E!’s sixth spinoff of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” is scheduled to premiere Sept. 20 on E!
