However, it seems the Kardashian-Jenner clan decided to take things up a notch this year by going for a dramatic over the top look — posing in exquisite gowns and dark make-up.
“We went super glam this year and each went for our own look,” Kim Kardashian blogged on Wednesday. “Kourt chose a tailored suit to match Mason and Scott, Khloe went for gorgeous peach ruffles and I chose a floor-length white gown. How stunning do Kendall and Kylie look!? This might be my favorite of all our family Christmas cards!”
Kourtney Kardashian also blogged about the photo, stating that “Mason is wearing a custom made Astor & Black suit Ralph Lauren shirt, Pucci pocket square and Ralph Lauren shoes.”
Allrighty then. Some behind the scenes photos below of the Kardashian family.

Could the Kardashian sisters’ world domination be coming to a close end?
First came that whole Pre-paid Kardashian Kard debacle, followed by an embarrassing charity stunt gone wrong, plus low sales of their new book Kardashian Konfidential, and now a new report that reveals their fashion “empire” is in crisis.
The reason? Well the unofficial reason rather is simply because the line did not perform as well as Bebe would have liked. Bebe president Emilia Fabricant however put it in nicer terms. “The sisters do still have relevance. We need to move with fashion and we want to be first in the fashion world with everybody else and not fall behind,” Fabricant toldWWD. “We are definitely assessing the situation.”
It doesn’t end there as a column in Thursday’s New York Times gave a scathing review of the sisters’ NYC boutique store Dash.
“Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drippy cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers,” said the article. “Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon.”
The writer Jon Caramanica then added that the overpriced clothes, including an animal print dress for $308 and a hat for $430, seemed questionable at best. “You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist.” Ouch.
And finally, Khloe Kardashian is coming under fire for some comments she made during her recent appearance on Lopez Tonight. “They basically are just raping you in public,” Khloe, 26, complained comparing the airport patdowns to rape. “I got asked the other day, do you want to go for a screening or get padded down,” the reality star said. “I don’t want that X-Ray to see everything, honey!”
According to RadarOnline, victims’ right advocate groups are very unhappy with Khloe’s comments. “I think it was an ill-informed thing for her to say, “ said Jazmin Robles, a community education coordinator with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center,. “It was a very strong comment to make because rape is defined as ‘forceful penetration’ and a lot of young women look up to celebrities like the Kardashians.”

According to the site’s calculations, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star pulled in estimated $6 million this year alone! And how did Kimmy earn her money? Well from doing a countless number of endorsements (clothing lines, watch line, swimsuit line, fragrances, and diet-products), writing a book, doing a spin-off, and paid appearances. Kim reported commands up to $75,000 per paid appearance.
Coming in second place on the list is MTV’s Lauren Conrad at $5 million. In a close third is Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel at $4 million. Kate Gosselin is also number 5 on the list pulling in $3.5 million. In fact out of the top 10 reality earners, 8 are female.

Kate Gosselin: $3.5m

According to the Daily Beast, Jersey Shore star Snooki failed to make the list because she only earned $750,000 this year. And while this list looks impressive, we do have some major doubts about a number of those estimated earnings.

Following many millions earned and many years of successful numerous endorsements, it seems the Kardashians sisters have hit a major bump with their latest effort to branch into financing.
Just 3 weeks after announcing their endorsement deal with mastercard for their own prepaid debit card – Kardashian Kard — the three sisters, Khloe, Kim & Kourtney, have officially pulled the plug on the deal.
According to TMZ, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars sent out a “Notice of Termination” to the companies behind the card on Monday afternoon — stating that they’re sick of the “negative spotlight” after the Attorney General of Connecticut opened an investigation to determine if the card violates consumer protection laws.
The “Kardashian Kard” includes a picture of the trio on one side and was aimed at young adults. It immediately came under attack after the hidden fees were revealed to the public. For example, It costs $59.95 just to buy the card for six months, or $99.95 for 12 months. Which doesn’t include any money on the card as the card owner was responsible for adding money to it.
Unfortunately, the fees did not end there as after those six or 12 months are up, it then costs $7.95 a month to keep using the card. Users also had to pay $1.50 to withdraw cash from an ATM, and $1 to check their balance. Talking to a customer representative? $1.50 for each call, and canceling the card costs $6.
And oh yeah, losing the card also results in a charge of $9.95. Ultimately, consumers lost money before even getting the chance to use the card. In the letter obtained by TMZ, the Kardashian lawyers wrote, “The Kardashians have worked extremely long and hard to create a positive public persona that appeals to everyone, particularly young adults,” before adding that the investigation “threatens everything for which [The Kardashians] have worked.”
Those who have the card still have up to 30 days to continue using it. Once the 30 days are over, they would receive refunds of balances and up-front fees.

While there are probably millions of women all over the world who are single at age 30, apparently when it comes to Kim Kardashian, it is front page news material.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star graces the latest cover of PEOPLE magazine under the heading ‘Kim Kardashian at 30 – I Thought I’d Be Married By Now.’ Get it? Because she’s 30 and not married unlike her 26-year-old sister Khloe Kardashian, nor does she have any kids unlike her 31-year-old sister Kourtney.
“Is it weird that I’m now the single one? It’s definitely a change for me,” she admits. “I have always been the one in a relationship. I like that role, I want that best friend partnership.”
The single Kim does also add that she feels “powerful” being an unattached career woman. Our open letter to Kim is below.
Dear Kimmy, you’re playing this all wrong sweetheart. Appearing on PEOPLE’s cover to tell your woe is me – I’m 30, still single and hoping to fall in love soon story only scares them away. Telling PEOPLE magazine that you’re loving the single life and aren’t really looking to get married anytime soon unless you happen to find someone really special will have them lining up at your door. Sincerely, Reality Tea.
P.S. – Please stop messing with your face.

On the finale episode, Reggie was portrayed as a very jealous ex who wasn’t happy that Kim was moving on with another NFL player -Miles Austin.
“I just feel like sh*t. It’s like literally driving me crazy,” an emotional Reggie could be heard saying to Kim, who had him on speaker phone. Kim was later shown on the show reading angry text messages from Reggie which included – “So glad I didn’t buy you a f*cking ring, I mean God, why was I ever considering that?”
Here’s what Reggie wrote on his twitter page early this morning, hours after the finale episode aired -
“Don’t make me expose you to those people who don’t know you…” -Jay Z (subliminal tweets)
I kinda feel like the government right now! Lol! Man if they only knew what I knew about you! Don’t smile in my face and frown at my back…
So how about them Texas Rangers! Lol! (changes subject!!!) ;-)”
Reggie has since deleted the second tweet. Kim’s other ex Miles also posted the following cryptic tweet yesterday – “Can’t knock the hustle.” Kim has received some backlash from fans who feel she shouldn’t have put Reggie’s calls or texts on the show. Here’s what she had to say about that criticism in a blog yesterday -
“I saw some stuff on the internet saying I’ve put Reggie on blast for airing a phone call with the two of us. Reggie and I were in a relationship for over 3 years and we have taped dozens of conversations and iChatted many times while filming, so this is nothing new or scandalous. Reggie is my friend, and whether or not, we are in a relationship, he is someone I care about. With that said I live my life on a reality show and to let you guys into my life, I show as much as I can. This episode is my most emotional and most vulnerable and it takes a lot to put yourself out there the way I did.”
We think Reggie might have missed the friendship memo. Kim is currently in NYC filming Kourtney and Kim Take NYC with sister Kourtney Kardashian. TMZ reported days ago that Kim is now dating musician John Mayer.

“This couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me to just get out of my life [in LA] … I’m single and I keep on saying, ‘I’m single for the first time’ but I never have really given it a shot to be single,” she toldRyan Seacrest on his radio show. “I tried and I tried to play that role but I really wasn’t single.”
Kim intends on keeping things casual saying, “I’m down for some hookups.” And as of those romance rumors with rapper Kanye West (the two were photographed together when he paid a visit to her DASH store in NYC this week), Kim states she is not dating him.
“He came by the store. We wanted to show him our new designs of the store,” she explained before Ryan jokingly asked her about checking out Kanye. “I was not checking out his ass,” Kim added, “Don’t start any rumors!”
