Kardashians Only Made $65 Million Last Year – Poor Things

The new issue of The Hollywood Reporter gets in depth with the Kardashian dynasty by chatting with mom and manager Kris Jenner. And apparently their $65 million earnings last year were more than what Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Tom Cruise are estimated to have earned combined!

The interesting part is that their E! show is basically not their money-maker, but a commercial for them to promote all their other endorsements and products. Check out some other interesting tidbits from the article as to how they make their money…

Just grasp this folks:

  • Kim charges as much as $25,000 to mention or link a brand or company on her Twitter account
  • Kim charges appearance fees that range from $100,000 to $250,000 per event; sometimes she can even ask for $1 million for international appearances
  • Kourtney’s pregnancy story to Life & Style went for $300,000
  • Khloe & Lamar Odom earned nearly $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding and nearly everything for the wedding was ‘donated’ so as to promote vendors with massive product promotion
  • This is real shady/awesome – certain paparazzi agencies have agreements to do staged photos with members of the family; Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun

“My fantasy is to have Keeping Up With the Kardashians, season 26,” Jenner, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.”
