Kardashians Ink New Deal with E! for HOW MUCH?!?
Remember just a few months ago? All those rumors of Keeping with the Kardashians getting canceled?
This is how members of reality TV’s most famous family are now reacting to such speculation:
Not only are they laughing; they are laughing all the way to the bank.
Actually, they are laughing all the way to the bank, stopping for a meal at a five-star restaurant, buying a new sports car and then laughing some more on the way to a second bank.
Because TMZ has confirmed that the Kardashians/Jenners have signed a new deal with E! for a whopping $ 150 million overall.
Here are the reported details of the mammoth contract:
- Kris Jenner will earn the manager’s fee of 10% right off the top, meaning she walks away with $ 15 million.
- As a cast member on the show itself, though, she will also see a cut of the remaining $ 135 million.
- The deal is for five “cycles,” or seasons.
- It runs through 2019.
- The total amount is a huge raise from the last contract the Kardashians signed with E!, which paid them $ 100 million total.
The deal is also for more than merely filming episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
While specifics are not clear, it includes promotional appearances, interviews, etc. The network is paying “for all services rendered by the Kardashians,” according to TMZ.
As for how the money will be divided up?
Sources indicate that at least half of the payout will go to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney.
They’ll earn the most, even if it seems as if their stock has fallen a bit, while Kylie Jenner’s is very much on the rise.
But producers don’t want to mess with what has been a wild success thus far – and that success has been to focus on the lives of the three oldest sisters, Kim most prominently.
Kylie will earn the fourth most. (But don’t cry too hard for her; Kylie Cosmetics isn’t doing too poorly.)
Kendall will earn the fifth most because she has a busy modeling career that often supersedes her commitments to the series.
And Rob will earn the least of all his siblings because… come on, it’s Rob. The guy is a mess and often falls off the radar for months at a time.
On Monday night, meanwhile, Kris Jenner shared the photo above, prompting social media users to joke that she was rubbing it in everyone’s faces how she is so rich and we’re all so poor.
Guess it wasn’t a joke.
The family, of course, will not be lacking for storylines moving forward:
Kim and Kanye West will adopt a third child early next year after their surrogate gives birth.
Kylie is pregnant. And Khloe is pregnant, too!
Both women are expected to become mothers some time next spring. Is this a crazy coincidence?
Or, considering this contract news, is it possible the sisters somehow planned their pregnancies as a negotiating tactic?
Serioisly, would anything surprise you at this point when it comes to the Kardashians?
So there you have it.
The Kardashians and the Jenners really have owned the past decade.
At this point, they’ll own the next one as well.
We might as well all get used to it.
Or figure out a way to move to Mars.
