It’s probably about time for the Kardashians to change the title of their TV show, because the only ones keeping up with them are professional athletes, bankers, and Powerball winners. America’s royal family has reportedly just signed on with E! for two more years of their reality show for a whopping $150 MILLION!
TMZ broke the news earlier today, and they reveal that the contract is structured so that the family will decide how the money is split up. Although the contract is through 2019, it will actually cover five seasons (or cycles) of the show — that comes out to $30 million per season. The new contract is a 50% RAISE for the family, who are making $20 million per season in their current contract.
Although the $150,000,000 will be divided up among the family members, matriarch Kris Jenner is set to get the lioness’ share because 10% of that ($15 million) goes straight to her as the Kardashians’ manager — err, momager.
I’m wondering if the MASSIVE contract signing wasn’t motivation for Kris Jenner’s headline-grabbing pajama madame platinum blonde look from this weekend:
I’m not sure what I would look like on the outside after signing a $150,000,000 contract for my family’s reality show, but that photo is pretty much exactly what I would look like on the inside.
I know lots of folks love to hate the Kardashians (which is a huge part of why they are so famous), but I’ve always been an admirer of their hustle and lack of assholishness. So let me say… Congratulations!
