I know, I was worried too. I was biting my nails, sitting on the edge of my seat, and doing all those other things that nervous people do, wondering “when will my sacred view into the lives of the Kardashians be ripped away from me? When will I not have that glimpse into the the perfect life that I cherish so much?” I was right in the middle of giving myself an ulcer when boom, this story came out.
The Kardashians just signed a deal for three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. And you won’t even believe how much money they’re getting paid.
The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it’s the richest deal ever in reality TV … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.
Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock.
Sources connected to the deal tell TMZ … Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion’s share of the money … and they are each getting equal pay.
We’re told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade — and will be paid equally as well.
Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar … who hammered out a package deal to appear in both “Khloe and Lamar” and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
We’re told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows — so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show … they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money.
Over 40 million dollars. Three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The Kim and Kanye show that was so tantalizingly hinted at (which, by the way, when it happens, it will be titled The Kim and Kanye Variety Hour, and it will be our generation’s Sonny and Cher). I think you can understand why my mind is having a hard time coming to terms with all of this.
I will leave you with this though: since the beginning of the Kardashian empire, we’ve gotten about one season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians a year. That means we have roughly three more years of dealing with these people. Minimum.
Hope you guys have a fantastic morning!
