The reality of this may chill us to the bone, but we doubt anyone will be shocked, given their insane amount of overexposure.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the entire Kardashian family pulled in a collective $65 MILLION in the year 2010, thanks to their endless reality shows, endorsements, products, appearance fees.
Yes. This means that they made more than Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, and Tom Cruise COMBINED.
Family matriarch Kris Jenner credits their success to being able to make the
most money best out of daughter Kim's sex tape scandal.
"I thought, 'Oh well, there goes the reality show.' But you can either be a problem maker or a problem solver. And I'm a problem solver. My job as her mom and manager is to take care of the problem — whatever it is. I had to cry and get upset in the privacy of my own room and then come out and help her, because she's my daughter. What good is it for me to berate her?…All I knew was that I had to make some lemonade out of these lemons fast. Real fast. My job was trying to take my kids' 15 minutes and turn it into 30. Not only do we not have filters running through our brains, we don't edit ourselves…The scene where [Kourtney's boyfriend] Scott [Disick] is shoving money down the waiter's throat, that was hard to watch. But I said: 'Leave it alone. Just show it. It'll be fine.' I've said that every single time. And it's served me well from a business point of view. My fantasy is to have Keeping Up With Kardashians, Season 26…Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids."
LOLz! Agree with her take on parenting or not, you can't deny that this woman knows how to keep the family franchise going!
And for that, you have to respect her!
What do U think?? Can U believe that the Kardashians pull in $65 million a year?!
