Kardashian Baby Pics
A Hard Sell

Kris Jenner is trying to sell pictures of daughter Kourtney Kardashian's new baby, Penelope Scotland Disick. The problem? No one wants to write a check to get them!

No one wants Kourtney Kardashian baby photos

Is the booming celebrity baby photo business bust? Yes, according to some magazine editors. That's bad news for Kourtney Kardashian — she's not likely to attract much green for photos of newborn baby Penelope Scotland Disick.

"She will be lucky if she gets $20,000 to $30,000 for the pictures," a gossip mag editor told The Huffington Post's Rob Shuter. "The Kardashian craze has been over for some time now. Now a picture of Tom and Katie is worth more."

We're not sure if the craze is actually over — the reality family just signed a $40 million deal with E! for more shows, but the interest in their every move is waning a bit.

The real issue: Celebrity baby covers just don't move on newsstands like they used to, mostly because the same photos and interviews are available online almost immediately. Case in point? Jessica Simpson received a reported $800,000 for the first photos of daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson, but the cover story didn't bring in the bucks.

This probably isn't news for Kardashian momager Kris Jenner: She had a hard time selling off Kourtney's baby shower photos, eventually selling them to US Weekly for less than she wanted.

"It's been a long time since paying to secure exclusive images of a celebrity baby guaranteed huge sales," another editor said. "Kourtney's second child isn't such a big deal. If it were Kim's baby, it might be different, but with the exception of hardcore fans no one is waiting to see what Penelope looks like."

We know that Kris is likely trying to cajole Kim and beau Kanye West into having a kid — gotta keep that cash coming in! Still, it's pretty depressing that Kourtney can "only" attract $20-30K for pictures — that’s more than millions of people make in a year! We'll gladly take that much for the first photos of our kids, thanks.

Hannah, No one cares about the Kardishans except you maybe, they just love to hate them.

"The kardashian craze is over" YA RIGHT!! It definitly isn't! There are tons of fans waiting to see photos of Kourtney and Scott's baby Penelope! The person who wrote that obviously 1. Isn't a fan- at all 2. Doesn't realize how many people make up their H U G E fan base! 3. Hates them. Come on!

It sad that Kris Jenner is trying to make money off of her grandchildren. Why don't the magazine take that money and help a family in need. There are so many people out there that need help. I wonder how much does the Kardanshian's contribute to any charity organizations? You really never see them doing anything to give back. We only see them traveling, eating and arguing and the girls are so disrespectful to their mother the way they talk to her.

How much lower can Kris Jenner go for money?

Emma July 11, 2012 | 4:36 PM

It's sad that all this family is after is money. It is pretty ridiculous that as this new life is entering the world that the pressing issue is who is going to but the baby photos for the highest price. This is so not what this is all about and we shouldn't buy in to it!
