Khloe Kardashian graces the latest cover of UsWeekly magazine under the heading “Our Baby Struggle.” After tying the knot a year and a half ago in September 2009, Khloe made it very clear that she and hubby Lamar Odom wanted a baby right away.
In fact, theKeeping Up With The Kardashians star has revealed in multiple interviews that she and Lamar are not doing anything to prevent a baby from happening. Well, it’s now over a year and a half, and many are wondering where is the baby? As Khloe is yet to be pregnant.
UsWeekly caught up with Khloe during the recent NBA All Star weekend during which they asked her the same invasive question.
“It takes time, I guess, I don’t know,” replied Khloe, 26, adding that her conception issues are confounding. “I don’t know what the problem is,” she added. Perhaps there is no problem and Khloe’s previous statements about trying for a baby were just to keep her in the headlines and fuel pregnancy rumors but hey, what do we know?
Moving right along to Kim Kardashian, who is making headlines for an Old Navy commercial she’s not starring in. It seems the crafty folks at Old Navy are capitalizing off Kimmy’s fame as their latest commercial has people doing double takes, featuring Kim’s doppelganger in the form of real life singer Melissa Molinaro.
While Kim and her reps have yet to comment on the ad, E! News reported yesterday that Kimmy is not happy with the commercial. Lawyers however state a lawsuit might be difficult to win since neither Kim’s actual likeness or name was used in the commercial. Photos from the ad below plus the actual video commercial.

A day after the shocking report by the Hollywood Reporter (a very reputable media outlet) revealed the Kardashian clan earned an astonishing $65 million in 2010, we now have more details on just how the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family earned that amount.
We reported yesterday that Kim charges as much as $25,000 to tweet about a product or company, while commanding a personal appearance fee of $100,000 to $250,000 per event, and demanding up to $1 million internationally. Below are more detailed earnings of the Kardashians -
- The family splits a six-figure paycheck per E! episode. However, while the show might provide a steady paycheck, it serves a larger purpose of being a marketing platform for their endorsements and best-selling products, which include book, fragrance and clothing lines. Example, “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” focused on the opening of a Florida outpost of their clothing store, Dash.
- Kim is rumored to have signed a seven-figure deal with a Las Vegas club owner for a handful of 2011 appearances. (Kris will not confirm.) “Kim sells,” a nightlife source says. Kim, who now has over 6 million followers on twitter tells THR, “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month.”
- Kourtney sold her 2009 pregnancy news to Life & Style magazine for a cool $300,000! The deal included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment.)
- Khloé and husband Lamar Odom scored close to $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding photos. Kris had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloé’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the wedding, promising the vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).
- Certain paparazzi agencies have agreements with the family to stage photos, sell them and split the profits. Example – Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun.
- The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid credit card the sisters launched in November, gave them $3 for every card activated or sold, 25 percent of fees, a $75,000 advance on royalties and a $37,000 signing bonus. However, Kris quietly terminated the agreement when then-Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal complained the card had hidden predatory fees. The card’s issuer is now suing the family for $75 million.
To round up the interview with THR, Momager/PimpKris Jennerreveals the family has no plans of slowing down. “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,‘ season 26,” Kris, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.“
And believe it or not, Kris reveals she worries about overexposing the family. “We definitely worry about overexposure. We never want to get to a place where people are thinking, ‘Enough is enough.’ ” We take it Kris does not read “the blogs”
So teens, the moral of this story is to stay in school, and with hard work, you too can build a $65 million fortune. Oh, who are we kidding? Feel free to purchase a camcorder, find yourself a D-list singer and have at it! We kid, we kid… we think. Though we do have to wonder if going public with a story like this is good PR for the family, which has started to receive major backlash and criticism from the public in recent weeks.
TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY THE AMOUNT THE KARDASHIANS EARNED & HOW THEY EARNED IT? HOW DO YOU REALLY FEEL ABOUT A FAMILY “WITH NO TALENT” EARNING SUCH A FORTUNE?
According to a new report, you now have 65 million more reasons to hate the Kardashians.
The Hollywood Reporter via UsWeekly is reporting today that the Kardashian family made over $65 million combined in 2010! It gets even worse better as that amount is more than talented celebrities Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Tom Cruise made combined.
And just how did Kim, Khloe and Kourtney make $65 mil? The report states that amount was made from their reality shows, endorsements, product lines, public appearance fees and more. In fact, momager/pimpKris Jenner is being credited for the girls’ staggering fame and financial success.
“My job was trying to take my kids’ 15 minutes and turn it into 30,” said Kris to THR. Khloe Kardashian, 26, tells the mag: “My mother has just always been this ‘Let’s make water into wine’ person…She knows how to take one small talent or ability and grow it into something huge.”
Yes indeed, in 2007, Kris, 55, shopped around a new reality series when daughter Kim Kardashian, now 30, became the star of a sex tape with then-boyfriend RayJ. E! programming executive Lisa Berger admits the network almost passed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but was convinced otherwise by RyanSeacrest. “It has changed the face of E!” she told THR.
So does Mama Kardashian ever turn down any endorsement for the girls? Kris reveals she said “hell to the no” when a sex toy company that wanted to sign Khloe and husband LamarOdom with a line of “vibrating panties, nipple rings and vibrators.”
These days, Kim can charge up to $100,000 to $250,000 to appear at an event — and even $1 million abroad. She also commands as much as $25,000 to mention a brand in a tweet… All because of a sex tape.
In other Kardashian news, UsWeekly & E! News report that Kim and former BFF Paris Hilton finally buried the hatchet this weekend after years of feuding. It all went down during a Grammys after party on Sunday, when “Paris came up to her and apologized, and said she didn’t want to fight,” a source explains. “Paris said she was happy for Kim’s success despite what reports have said — Kim was sweet and accepted her apology.”
As for what caused the feud, it has been reported that Paris became jealous of Kim once her fame started to surpass hers. Things got really ugly back in 2008 when Paris did a radio interview and referred to Kim’s famous butt as being “gross” and “disgusting.” Paris then added, “It reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.” Paris later apologized for her comments.
Meanwhile, sources close to Kim reveal the reunion only lasted about 30 seconds. “There was no reunion at all,” said a source very close to Kim told E!. “And there never was a feud, Kim was like, ‘Who cares about her?’” Ouch.
And for those unfamiliar with the woman pictured above with Paris, it is indeed Kim Kardashian, you know, before not having all the plastic surgery procedures she claims to have never gotten.

In the mag, Kim interviews Elizabeth Taylor, someone whom she calls one of her “all time favorite Hollywood style icons.”
Kim whined complained to the mag about having to fight the public perception that she is a “whore.” “What if I want to go on a date with someone in New York, and then I come home to L.A. and I go on a date?” Kim, 30, pondered. “I could have slept with none of them, but I would be known as being a ‘slore’: a slut and a w—e,” she declared.
It didn’t end there as Kim also denied capitalizing off her sex tape, you know, the one that got her a reality show on E! and made her uber famous. “I never made a business off of the tape,” Kim claimed. “I made a business off my family and our TV show. Before the tape came out, we were in the works to do our TV show, but people don’t know that.”
She also discussed her former BFF Paris Hilton, revealing they no longer talk. “We don’t really talk. As I always say, everyone comes into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. And she was in my life for a long time.” She adds, “There comes a point in life where you just grow apart and you realise you’re not as similar as you thought. And I never run into her anywhere. Isn’t that so weird?”

“I think my weight is my biggest lifetime struggle,” the E! reality star says in a video on her blog. “My weight is always going up and down. I’m always fighting that.”
In the interview from Playboy’s upcoming February issue, Lamar, 31, reveals the biggest surprise about his wife of over a year was her IQ. “I was kind of surprised at how intelligent she was,” said Lamar. “You don’t know what to expect. Next thing I know I’m spending every day with her. We just hit it off.”
If you recall, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars tied the knot back in September 2009 after only dating for a few weeks. According to Lamar, he simply found no reason to delay his happiness. “It was quick,” he says. “I guess that just added to the speculation – ‘Why can’t they wait?’ I didn’t want to wait.”
Lamar also reveals that while the old him was afraid of the responsibility of even having a girlfriend, he is now a changed man thanks to Khloe. “With her I was like, ‘If I do what I normally do, I’m going to lose her,’” states Lamar. “‘And if I lose her, I think it’s going to hurt a lot.’ Right then and there I knew. We were together every day.” We can all let out a collective aww though we wonder how Liza Morales, the mother of Lamar’s 2 kids and girlfriend of over a decade must be feeling about this new interview.
In other Khlomar news, it seems Khloe is oh so over being a red head as she is now back to being a brunette just nine days after the drastic color change.

Allrighty, a photo of Khloe back as a brunette is below -

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe will be collaborating with Australian designer Bruno Schiavi to create ‘Kardashian Kollection.’ The line will feature apparel, lingerie, shoes and accessories.
The line is slated to hit 400 Sears stores in August, and Kim recently blogged about the news, even stating that Sears was an obvious choice for she and her sisters because get this, they actually frequent the store. “We’ve always shopped at Sears, so we thought it was the perfect outlet for the Kardashian Kollection,” wrote Kim.
Kardashian Kollection promises to incorporate each of the sisters’ individual styles. This latest clothing venture is in addition to the sisters’ current clothing line with Bebe. According to reports, the line isn’t doing too well for Bebe and the company is considering dropping it this year.
Analysts are predicting this new line will generate sales of $200-$300 million for Sears. The Kardashians could use the extra money considering they were just sued for $75 million for breaching the contract for another business venture – their prepaid debit card.
