Say whatever you want about pimpmomager Kris Jenner, but the lady knows how to make that money! Case in point – her daughter KimKardashian reportedly earned $28 million dollars in 2013!
With ratings for her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians sinking, her fashions universally mocked, and her relationship (and marriage) to Kanye West constantly reviled, it's impossible to imagine how Kim earned that chunk of change! Are sex tape royalties that good?! Apparently not, but showing up places sure is.
The bulk of Kim's earnings come, not from endorsements or TV appearances, but sadly from appearances – that is showing up at a club, a store or restaurant opening, parties, or events.
Sunday's night's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was very different from the normal bad acting and over the top orchestrated storylines..or was it?Kim Kardashian andKris Jennertraveled to Vienna and had the holiday from hell, but on a happier note we heard baby North giggling & even saw the back of her head at one point! Also in a completely shocking turn of events, Khloe Kardashian did not say vagina once. I'm serious. She has outgrown it, and has moved on to repeatedly saying c*ck.. this girl must have Tourette's.
Things kick off with Kim negotiating wedding details with Mason and a silent Penelope. Kim decides to bore her sisters to tears upgrade from infants and starts to talk weddings with her sisters. So far on the Kardashian-West circus wedding there are whispers of Parisian churches, luxurious chateaus and three costume changes. I think she has a ‘what would Elizabeth Taylor do’ type of theme – opulent, extravagant and over the top. I mean she is like Elizabeth Jr., already on to her third marriage! The real shocker was that Kim wants to wear all white; something tells me after three marriages it's time to retire the all-white gown. Isn't that customary? #EmilyPost
It was another busy weekend for the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The family celebrated Khloe Kardashian's 30th birthday, hunted for $20 million apartments in NYC for Kim Kardashian and of course filmed it all for their reality show and showed off some interesting fashions for the cameras.
Khloe turned 30 and celebrated with two birthday parties. At the first soiree, her boyfriend-but-not-boyfriend French Montana gifted her with jewelry (a ring and two sets of grillz) and a Jeep Sahara, totaling over $100,000. The second party was held aboard a yacht.
In between Khloe's two birthday bashes, Kim and her family went apartment hunting in NYC. Kim is reportedly looking for a $20+ million dollar home with more privacy. <insert reality camera joke here>
What ever happened to celebrities being just like us? Not that I ever thought that Kanye West thought that applied to Kanye West, but apparently not even the police will treat Kanye West like anybody else in trouble with the law.
Most people and celebrities spend hours picking up trash or working at homeless shelters to serve their community service hours. But not Yeezus. He somehow managed to sweet talk his way into a plush teaching gig at a fashion school to serve his community service stemming from assault charges last year.
Last night’s episode starts with Kris stepping in dog sh*t, and with that intro I knew tonight’s episode would be a good one. Apparently Kendall has left her dog at home with Kris while her modeling career has taken off. Unfortunately for Kris, Blue is not house trained just yet and she has left her a special present. Kris screams bloody murder and Kim runs to her aid. Kim chastises her mother for being so loud when baby North is asleep and the two proceed to bicker about who should be cleaning the mess up. I’m sorry but as if these two princesses don’t have a team of cleaners at their beck and call. #NiceTryLadies
Kim writes, "My best friend Allison and I wanted to take our babies out to lunch a few days ago after our baby class but there were so many paparazzi swarming us, it would have really scared them. Instead we had to feed them at her place and put them down for a nap. We were planning on taking them to the Beverly Hills Hotel, which is where we always go because they respect not having any paparazzi drive onto their property, but I reminded Allison that my bridal shower was moved from that hotel due to the actions of the Sultan of Brunei. Allison shared with me her view on the situation and we 100% agree that the actions and law enforcements of the Sultan are completely against everything we believe in."
Kim Kardashian celebrated North West's first birthday today with a backyard bash she dubbed "kidchella."
The birthday party featured a Ferris wheel, teepees and a bouncy house – and custom Yeezus shirts for kids. Seriously. Kim,Kris Jenner and Khloe shared photos of the festivities, including a video of Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner rocking out on a mini-stage. No photos of the birthday girl, though. The family seemed to be most impressed with the Ferris wheel as all of them shared the same photo on Instagram.
I have to say that I'm a little shocked that it wasn't more elaborate, at least from what they've shared so far. I was expecting even more than this. A full sized Ferris wheel is pretty over-the-top, but this is Kimye we're talking about. Was Kanye even there? Or was he still in France? Khloe and Kourtney flew home last night. I wonder if that means they're already done filming their spinoff in the Hamptons or if they'll be heading back.
UPDATED: Look! Kim and Kanye and North WERE in attendance. They must've been busy Photoshopping the picture to perfection (like their wedding photo) before posting it!
