The Kardashian family raked in an astonishing $65 million in 2010 alone, said an insider.
A source close to the Kardashian clan says the family pulled in a huge payday in 2010: About $65 million between all of them for their myriad endorsement deals, stores, products, public appearances and three hit reality shows on E!
Why are we so fascinated with this family?
“We’re just this big family with a lot of drama and a lot of issues,” said mom and manager Kris Jenner. “And there’s someone here for everyone to relate to. I think if you’ve ever been embarrassed by your family — like your mother’s a kook or your father’s too strict — the show gives you hope. I’ve had so many people come over to me and say, ‘I remember the episode where you were crying over blah, blah, blah, and it helped me so much and I got through my dad’s death because of you.'”
And to think it all started with Kim Kardashian’s sex tape.
Can the Kardashian clan keep up the momentum? Kris, a former flight attendant, certainly hopes so.
“My fantasy is to have Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 26,” she said. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.”
