E! Has Plans For Kardashian Klan

Get ready for a whole lot more of the Kardashians. E! is considering launching up to four more TV series about the reigning First Family of Reality TV.

Hey E! -- ever consider changing your name to K!, instead? The entertainment network says its threatening planning to produce up to four more reality soaps about Kim, Kourt and the rest of the world-famous Kardashian Klan.

The broadcaster's schedule is already dominated by Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its spin-offs, Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney & Kim Take New York and Khloe & Lamar -- all about the adventures of various Kardashian family members.

But there's still plenty of material for more programming.

Just ask E! boss Bonnie Hammer.

Hammer tells The Hollywood Reporter that she hopes there are "two, three, even four new Kardashian [spinoffs]" ready to roll by this time next year.

There are plans to launch a program revolving around family matriarch Kris Jenner, insiders say. There's also talk of a companion series featuring Jenner's two youngest daughters, teen models Kendall and Kylie, who technically aren't even Kardashians.

In fact, Hollywood Life is reporting that Kris is working hard behind-the-scenes to get her family out of the public relations nightmare Kim's quickie split from Kris Humphries has put them in.

Her solution? Pushing Kylie and Kendall into the public eye, in turn taking attention off of her older daughters.

"Kris wants E! to move ahead with their plans to tape a reality show centered around Kendall and Kylie…Kris thinks the time to do it is now," a source divulged. "She thinks it's perfect timing."

The insider continued, "She thinks a reality show about her two youngest daughters would take the heat off Kimmy and the whole divorce scandal."

Hammer predicts the franchise "will have its own life expectancy." After all, the latest season opener of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, featuring the breakdown of the short-lived Kardashian-Humphries marriage, drew the franchise's largest premiere viewership to date.

"We'll eventually get rid of the more Playboy trashy element and elevate E! to a fun, exciting and aspirational network," Hammer surmised.

Translation: E! will keeping pumping out TV shows about the family until baby Mason goes off to college and Kim trades in her Louboutins for a Hoveround.

Think your TV can handle more of the Kardashians?

kid and her life is different than other sieextn-year-olds'. She models swimsuits and is designing jewelry with her sister Kylie. Being a reality star and especially being a Kardashian warps your notion of

My MIL loves my son (her only grandchild) but hates that he's the only child we're haivng. She actually was hurt that my husband got the big V in June because it meant we'd ruined our chances of an opps baby . Now everytime we talk to her we have to hear about all her friends whose kids are haivng more kids and how she only has one grandson.My husband told her today: Well mom, I do have a younger brother who is single and might be knocking some stranger up right now if you're lucky. It's a shame too, I like my MIL way more than my own mom, but not if she keeps this attitude up.

I used to watch Entertainment and now my daughters, as well as my large family, will not because of the obnoxious, self-serving, media s. I went to sign the petition and have found that it is not accessible. Another person on facebook has told me she actually rec'd a warning that it was abusvie and asked if she really wanted to be involved in it. To everyone out there, whether you like the Kardashians or not, don't you think that is a bunch of crap? It doesn't really matter, the list is out there for the places to boycott which is exactly what we will do.

I saw this on a talk show last night but I just thought it was a fake joke. I hang my head. I can't believe, or maybe I should believe that the mom is gonna pull her youngest daughters into , I don't know what you'd call it< but it's f upd. To exploit her youngest daughters to pull attention away from her older daughter.
