Kourtney Kardashian

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/Pimp Kris Jenner reveals 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/pimp Kris 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 Ray J. E! programming executive Lisa Berger admits the network almost passed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but was convinced otherwise by Ryan Seacrest. “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 Lamar Odom 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.

Below are more pictures of Paris and Kim aka ‘Kim’s before photos’ -

In today’s let’s hope all sharp objects are being kept far away from Kim Kardashian news, multiple media outlets are confirming that Kourtney Kardashian and long time boyfriend Scott Disick are engaged!

Life & Style magazine reports that Scott popped the question to Kourtney and she said, “yes!” It gets even better as the proposal and acceptance was all caught on tape for the season finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

“The season finale, which has already been filmed, ends with Scott proposing and Kourtney accepting,” an insider close to Kourtney tells Life & Style, confirming that the once rocky couple is officially engaged. “It’s been really hard for them to keep it quiet. She’s so excited for the finale to air this April so she can finally go out in public with her ring on. She wears it at home all the time.”

Popeater also confirms the story, adding that a spinoff show is already in the works! “Just like sister Khloe and Lamar, Kourtney and Scott will not only get their own show but also a wedding. It’s going to be TV gold,” and insider reveals to Popeater.

As for why the news is being kept under wraps? Life & Style reports, “The family is really happy about Scott and Kourtney’s engagement but they’re trying to keep it a secret so it’s a huge surprise on the show,” a second insider tells Life & Style.

Popeater adds that pimp-extraordinairre Mama Kris Jenner, “the genius behind the whole Kardashian phenomenon,” is currently conceptualizing the spinoff show with E! that will follow Kourtney and Scott on the path to a wedding. It will reportedly be filled with outrageous wedding plans, chaos, dresses, and Scott being a groomzilla.

OK! magazine also confirms the engagement news, adding that the marriage will take place this year and that Kourtney is already looking at dresses!

And this reported Scott and Kourney spinoff will make the fifth for the E! network involving the family. We can’t help but wonder if all the spinoff shows will equal too much for the public to handle.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS ENGAGEMENT & SPINOFF NEWS? DO YOU THINK KOURTNEY & SCOTT WILL MAKE IT DOWN THE AISLE? SHOULD KIM BE KEPT AWAY FROM ALL SHARP OBJECTS?

The latest episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York was nothing short of pure drama.

The episode featured the widely reported club incident which had Scott Disick getting into a fistfight, after Kim Kardashian got a drink thrown at her by the jealous girlfriend of a fan.

However, the most dramatic part of the episode came when Kim broke down into tears over her nude images in the October 2010 issue of W Magazine.

Kim appeared hysterical after seeing the nude photos, insisting she was promised something more artsy. “Oh my God, I’m more naked than I was in Playboy,” said Kim, who has expressed regret over her Playboy shoot. “I’m so mad right now! She promised I would be covered with artwork. This is serious porn … you can see nipple. The whole concept was sold to me that nothing would be seen.”

But the rant didn’t end there as Kim got more hysterical while crying. “I feel so f*cking taken advantage of … I’ve definitely learned my lesson. I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue,” added Kim. She also revealed she felt taking nude images was taking her backwards and that she had come too far in her career to go back.

Kim however quickly changed her tune after receiving a pep talk from mom/manager/pimp Kris Jenner, who advised her to “own” the racy spread. “I’m glad I did them,” Kim eventually said of the magazine spread.

Photos from that W magazine shoot are posted below. In other Kardashian news, Kim and her older sis Kourtney Kardashian appeared on CNN’s Peirs Morgan‘s new talk show during which they were asked about the authenticity of their breasts. Kourtney admitted she has a boob job, as she has in the past while Kim was adamant hers are 100% real.

Kourtney Kardashian is finally confirming the reports that her son Mason Disick will not be appearing on her upcoming E! reality show – Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

UsWeekly broke the surprising news weeks ago stating that the reason was due to bungled negations with the E! network. Kourtney’s beau Scott Disck reportedly wanted more money than the $1,000 per episode E! was offering for his son. The E! network declined to pay the $5,000 amount Scott wanted which led to him refusing to let them film Mason.

In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kourtney however gives a different reason for her 1-year-old Mason’s absence on the upcoming show.

“You’re not going to see Mason,” Kourtney told PEOPLE. “Scott and I decided not to have him on the show this season.” The reason? Kourtney gets “weirded out to have [Mason] on camera,” adding, “he can’t make the decision if he wants to be involved in this craziness or not.”

So does this mean we’ll never get to see Mason on TV in the future? “I think we’ll take it season by season with Mason,” Kourtney says of Mason who appeared on the last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. “We’ll see how it goes and how we’re feeling at the time.”

Kourtney & Kim Take New York Premieres Jan. 23 on E!.

Yet another new business venture to report for the Kardashian sisters. Popeater is confirming that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars have signed a new deal to design a clothing line and accessories for Sears stores nationwide.

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.

In other Kardashian news, Kim Kardashian is making headlines today for a recent photo she tweeted. The attention whore Kim tweeted a sexy vampire-esque bikini photo of herself yesterday in a barely there black bikini. “Photo shoot time!” she wrote. “#2sexy2tweet?” she asked her fans. Umm, we’ll let you be the judge of that as that bikini photo is below. Keep in mind that Kim’s boobs are 100% real, according to her.

Another sign that the Kardashian fame train will not be ending anytime soon is the latest cover of Glamour magazine featuring Kim Kardashian.

In an interview with the mag for it’s annual ‘Guy Issue,’ the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star admits she’s just like us, you know, minus the countless amount of plastic surgery. Kim reveals she is also insecure like most women. “I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive,” says Kim.

Below are other excerpts from her interview. Kim also seems to be singing a different tune on her decision to pose for Playboy years ago. In the past, Kim, 30, had claimed her mom pushed her to do it. Now, she states she did it for her “independence.”

On her success:
“I’d be foolish not to take some of these opportunities that are coming my way. We all know this can go away at any moment.”

On her sisters:
“We work really hard, and we fight like normal sisters fight, and we make up. We’re so supportive of each other. We always stick together. Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.”

On dating:
“It’s easier to just be single and not have a relationship. How do you get to know someone on a reality show? Some people think that they can handle it, and then they really can’t.”

On being in Playboy:
“It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I’ll have those pictures forever.”

On what she thought she’d be doing at 30:
“If you had asked me five years ago what I would be doing at 30, I would have said, ‘Married with a kid or two.’ Not in a million years did I dream that I would be doing all the things that I’m doing.”

In other Kardashian news, Kourtney Kardashian recently threw a circus carnival birthday party for her 1-year-old son Mason. Photos of that party are below. Kourtney was also photographed on a beach in Miami last Friday wearing a bikini with Mason and beau Scott Disick. Photos of that, including recent bikini photos of Kourtney from OK magazine, also posted below.

In not so surprising news, TMZ is reporting the Kardashian sisters and their mother Kris Jenner are being sued for a whopping $75 million for reneging on their prepaid debit card deal.

If you recall, the sisters – Kim, Khloe and Kourtneypulled out of the prepaid Mastercard deal citing they had no idea the card was loaded with hidden, possibly illegal fees after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation into the card.

Well it seems things don’t quite work that way in the business world as the Revenue Resource Group, LLC filed a lawsuit in Fresno, CA claiming the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars breached their contract when they pulled out of a deal to be the faces of the controversial prepaid card.

According to RRG, the sisters signed a two-year deal that they should have honored, and ever since they backed out, the company has been hit with a ton of bad publicity.

RRG is claiming the sisters cost them over $75 million in damages.  Ai yai yai. The Kardashians have yet to comment on the lawsuit.
