Kim Kardashian - Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Forbes Says Kim Kardashian Still Highest Paid ‘Reality Star’; Kylie and Kendall Close Behind

It’s official (again): Kim Kardashian is getting paid much more than she deserves the rest of the world! Well, the reality television world, at least. Forbes just released their list of highest paid reality stars, and 36-year old Kim once again tops the heap, coming in at $51 million. Yes, that is a five-one in front of that million!

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star seems to be raking in the dough not from her reality tv appearances, but from parlaying her image into a wildly profitable Hollywood mobile game, her app (she has an APP!?), social media endorsements, and “Kimojis.” What’s the “Kimoji” for “the world is coming to an end, so I’m just gonna sip on my tea and watch it implode”? Because, I think I need that one right now.


According to TheFix, six members of the Kardashian family actually top the highest paid reality stars this year, with Kylie Jenner (19) in second place at $18 million and Kendall Jenner (21) in third, at $17 million. Kendall might be the only member of the family earning the bulk of her money not from her “reality” image, but rather from building a growing fortune via her high profile modeling career.

The entire Kardashian family is reported to have earned a whopping $122.5 million between June of 2015 and June of 2016 alone. Maybe that’s why Kendall recently “forgot” she was even gifted a Rolls Royce at her birthday party? She spits on your Rolls Royce! She could fold up your Rolls Royce and put it in her gold plated jumpsuit pocket!

Kim’s 39-year old hubby, Kanye West, falls right in the middle of Kylie and Kendall’s yearly earnings, landing him at $17.5 million for the year – a sum nowhere near Kim’s stratospheric number. Maybe he needs a “Kanyemoji” line of cranky faces to compete financially in this marriage?

TheFix reports that the rest of the top six list is “rounded out by Khloe (32), Kris (61), and Kourtney (37), who earned $15 million, $11.5 million and $10 million, respectively.”

Well, there’s no doubt about it: The Kardashians have all the KASH. But with Kim still reeling from the Paris robbery that left her a few jewels poorer and pretty shaken up, the question remains: Is being known as one of the wealthiest women alive a good thing…or a dangerous thing?
