Crazy Kardashian Cabbage: Kardashian Empire Raked in $65 MILLION Last Year
While few families have such a love/hate realtionship with the American public, one thing is clear - the Kardashians know how to rake in the cash.
With all of their endorsements and products for sale, according to recent reports, the group earned $65 million dollars last year and expects to do many more this year.
The empire started much like Paris Hilton's did, with a sex tape. Kim Kardashian's illicit video with then-boyfriend Ray J made it into heavy rotation online, and soon thereafter the Kardashians had their own E! television series - "Keeping Up with The Kardashians."
Mother Kris Jenner took over the Kim Kardashian “brand” and not only pushed Kim in to the business of reality TV and fame, but sisters Khloe and Kourtney as well, who got themselves a spinoff series "Kourtney and Khloé in Miami."
Now, Khloe and Lamar Odom have a show, there has been another sister spinoff show "Kourtney and Kim Take New York," plus the fragrance, fashion and umpteen kinds of products the sisters push.
But are they taking it to the extreme with their plans for this year?
From The Hollywood Reporter:
This year, Kardashian Khaos, the first "celebrity destination” store at the Mirage in Las Vegas, will debut, housing every product the family endorses, including some new ones created specifically for the resort. “We’ll take Kim in a bikini and put her on a beach towel,” Kris says. “So you would be laying on a Kardashian at the pool.” The hotel itself will be a Kardashian shrine: The room keys will bear their image, the minibars in each of the 4,338 rooms will house Kardashian-branded water and Kim’s fragrance; and oh, Kim and the girls will be vamping on a dozen of the new slot machines.
Really? Kardashian slot machines? What's next? Oh right, a NSFW racy Khloe and Lamar "unisex fragrance" commercial:
