The Kardashians signed a new $40 million contract for 3 more seasons with E!

The Kardashian siege is upon us. It is unrelenting. It is kat-faced. It is epic. And it’s expensive too. And now the siege will be upon us for three more seasons, guaranteed. Yesterday, TMZ reported that the Family Kardashian has signed on to do three more “seasons” of their reality show(s). Their contract? Worth $40 million… but that’s parceled out amongst Kris and her employees/family:

The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it’s the richest deal ever in reality TV … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.

Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock.

Update: Sources connected to the deal tell TMZ … Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion’s share of the money … and they are each getting equal pay.

We’re told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade — and will be paid equally as well.

Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar … who hammered out a package deal to appear in both “Khloe and Lamar” and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

We’re told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows — so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show … they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money.

Dear God. Well, I’m not going to tear my hair out about this. What does a “season” consist of for the Kardashians? Like, three months? I feel like they’re always premiering new “seasons”. And it’s not on me – I don’t watch the shows! (OK, sometimes I watch a few minutes of a Khloe & Lamar episode here and there.) But the Kardashians wouldn’t be getting paid like this unless people were buying and watching.

By the way, I’m also including some photos of Meow, the 39-pound cat who is being internationally fat-shamed. I just figured… if we’re going to see photos of a cat-face with a huge ass, why not Meow rather than Kim Kardashian? I wish Meow had his own reality show. I would totally watch that. Get on it, Seacrest.

    Why do people watch their show – because it makes them realize that some people have lives that are even more screwed up than their own. Plain and simple.

  2. BW says:

    When even the pleated portion of your pleather skirt is stretched to the limit and riding up, YOU’RE WEARING TOO SMALL A SIZE!

  3. Eve says:

    By the way, I’m against people who overfeed their pets, but I’d totally sniff Meow’s belly all over — like, I’d bury my face in that fur.

  4. someone says:

    LOLOL best transition from Kim kardashian to the most adorable obese cat (not that I think obesity is funny)
    I’d very much rather watch 3 seasons of this furrball

  5. MrsBarneyStinson says:

    This is why I do not believe in karma.

  6. Anna says:

    Thank you so much for the Meow pictures – he’s cuter than the whole Kardashian family put together and I’d bet good money that he has more personality too.

  7. Kaboom says:

    The terrorists are winning.

  8. Zelda says:

    Busty girls should not wear high necks.

    Hippy girls should not wear pleated skirts.

    As soon as you are old enough to buy your own clothes, you should know this.

    • Amanda says:

      Ahh…But Kim doesn’t live in the “real” world. In Kardashian-Land anything goes and everything looks great on her. I bet she has custom-made mirrors that tell her this is true. Her stylists probably cut out the size tags from her clothing and replace them with smaller size tags. If she only knew how crazy she looked to those of us in the real world.

  9. brin says:

    Love the cat, not the kat-face.

  10. baby says:


  11. Nanz says:

    I don’t understand. Who watches their shows? I don’t know anyone who does. Are people
    lying to me??

  12. bee says:

    LOL!! The ex-con who started the petition to get rid of the Kardashian’s must feel like a complete idiot. Not only did they sign a new 3 year deal, it is for 40 million. That is the largest deal for reality tv. The Kardashian’s are winning.

  13. NYC_girl says:

    Poor Meow looks like he’s having none of it, being wedged into that carrier… I hope he loses some weight. There is something wrong with a society that pays that much money to useless, meaningless famewhores, and inner city school teachers make what – like $25k a year? It really pisses me off.

  14. marie says:

    holy crap on a cracker that’s a huge cat! And the only thing I can say about the rest of the story is boooooo!

  15. says:

    I blame Kanye for breathing renewed life into this fuckery.

    That outfit is all kinds of wrong.

  16. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    That’s probably 6.8 million each for Bruce, Kris, Kim, Kloë and Kourtney and 2 million each for Kendall, Kylie and Rob. I’m sure the first five fancy themselves worth over 3 x more than the others because that seems to be how that family rolls. It’s their pecking order of famewhore-a-bility.

  17. Blue says:

    Just because they make it in your size doesn’t mean it’s for you.

    Do they really have enough viewers to justify that kind of deal? I hope they are fudging the numbers, to make them look more desirable

  18. Zelda says:

    “And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder. One of the six beasts saying, ‘Come and see.’ and I saw, and behold a plastic fameho…

    …And I heard a voice in the midst of the six beasts. And I looked, and behold a pale katface, and her name that sat on her was Death, and hell followed with her.”

    2012. End of days, y’all.

  19. Grasshopper says:

    I’m going to go throw up now

  20. Chatcat says:

    I have never met anybody who has admitted watching this freak family show. I have never but obviously there are people out there who do. I don’t get it at all. I really can only shake my head over and over and over again.

    • Veruca says:

      I have two co-workers who watch the show religiously. One is a guy who admits he finds them repulsive but hilarious (plus he finds Kim hot), and the other is a woman who will go to her death defending that family because “they work SO hard!”

      We’ve threatened to have them fired if this behaviour doesn’t change, but they seem to love the K’s more than their jobs.

  21. Cathy says:

    I’d rather watch the show about the cat. It’s more interesting watching him hangout. You couldn’t pay me enough money to watch the Kuntrashians.

  22. Jag says:

    They’ve won. I’m done with that station and won’t watch it again. (I don’t watch the K trash, but used to like other shows back in the day.)

  23. Suzy from Ontario, Canada says:

    Clearly E has more money than brains

  24. Bubbling says:

    I don’t wanna live on this planet anymore. Mamma Kris, what in navy/pimping/Hugh Hefner hell are you wearing?!

  25. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Wonder if they put a stipulation in the contract about Kris and Kim krying a certain number of times. The ratings always increase when word gets out they attempted krying on an episode. Their 3.0 faces just don’t allow for it, water just comes from nowhere. It’s like a Ripley’s Believe it or Not moment.

  26. Phil says:

    I would totally cosign a reality show for pillow cat. <3

  27. lucy2 says:


    Well, at least the botox, fake eyelash, and skanky clothing industries will be kept in business for years to come.

    • Amanda says:

      Yes. Garth Fisher and the plastic surgeons of Beverly Hills are celebrating the renewal news at this very moment! They are counting the money already…

      On another note, I heard from a friend’s husband, who is coincidentally a plastic surgeon in BH, that after Kris K. announced to the world that Dr. Fisher did her facelift before Kim’s wedding (and that he also “fixed” Bruce’s botched face lift), his price for face lift’s jumped from $30K to $100K. These people are ruining everything for everyone else on so many levels!

  28. ZigZagZoey says:

    This makes me welcome the end of the world.

  29. Mare says:

    Everyone, including me, who has opened this article or any other article about Kardashians on any other site is contributing to their paycheck. It doesn’t matter that most of the comments are negative, that’s irrelevant. Some people watch them, some read about them, of course they’ll get pay to continue doing what they do.

  30. Raven says:

    I wondered whether you were going to cover this. My jaw dropped when I read it. Clearly sex tapes and a family willing to do the same really pays off.
    Maybe the pirates off the African coast should get themselves a reality show. Apparently anyone can do it.

  31. Manda says:

    My 6 year old daughter saw her picture and said she looked like a bobble head.

  32. Tiffany says:

    ‘Seacrest Out!’…is what I will say when I fly to LA and clean his clock. Why do I have such anger towards him and this family.It’s like its the beginning of the end…of my world. They can’t be ignored no matter how hard I try. *goes to hide in nuclear bunker*

  33. tru tru says:

    well I’ve shown E I am serious, I do not watch their channel EVER…

    good luck to these trash bag attention whores.

    whiny voices, I’d rather watch paint dry.

  34. Paula says:

    That is f–king disgusting! They are disgusting!

  35. Dragonlady sakura says:

    Seriously, when are the four horsemen of the apocalypse going to arrive?

  36. Gene Parmesan says:

    Ice Loves Coco is better!!

  37. mel says:

    40 million split between 8 people over 3 years…I honestly thought that’s what they were getting paid already. I’m shocked kim isn’t demanding more than the rest as she is the one who got the family famous. I bet the mom ends up with the most in her pocket, she gets paid to be on the show, she is an executive producer of the show, plus she is the manager of all of them, that’s 10% from each of them !

  38. ok says:

    everything they do in front of the camera is free, do a facelift for the show, get it for free, go on vacation with the cameras, the vacation is free, eat at restaurants and E pays the bill…that’s why they do everything with the cameras rolling and allow cameras on their “family vacations”. When the cameras eventually stop rolling (and they will), this family won’t know what to do with themselves.

  39. jj says:

    seriously who walks around like that on a daily basis? Their hair/make-up people must work 7 days a week.

  40. Dawn says:

    The best thing about television is that you can turn the channel and never return and thanks to E! insistence on showing everything K-trash I haven’t watched in years. And I won’t be back until the K-trash is gone. I suspect the next three years will mostly be about how and who the Jenner girls will be pimped out to, everyone is pretty sick of old lard ass anyway.

    • pj says:

      do you really think kim is going to let her younger sisters take away her limelight? She’ll do ANYTHING to stay the focus of attention, even if it means marrying and divorcing kanye in another huge wedding event. There’s nothing she won’t do. I can even see kim and kanye have a public break-up (scripted) just for publicity, or a fake pregnancy scare, the list is endless !

  41. Emma says:

    I’m confused. They haven’t even had a season of KUWTK since this whole divorce fiasco and being exposed for the lying, fake, money grubbers that they are. I believe they had a special for Kendall’s b-day that didn’t pull in the same numbers. Shouldn’t E wait to see if this season will have enough ratings before it signs a 3 year contract? Although I think besides all the hate they receive on the blogs, there are a lot of stupid people that will still tune in, but it still seems premature.

  42. Viv says:

    Oh please. Who’s gonna believe they will pay Bruce Jenner that much. Isn’t he the one who has to just shut up and sit in a corner?

  43. Jover says:

    I’m embarressed for the human species that even a small number of deluded souls would give up a few hours of their brief time on this earth to watch this pile of animated garbage.

  44. anonymoose says:

    If FillerFace wants to publicly display what a dowdy chunky monkey she is (complete with sumo wrestler hairdo), then so be it. No offense to monkeys – who are AWESOME magnificent creatures, or to sumo wrestlers – who wear the trad look of a respected sport.

    I still won’t watch or pay.

    The rest of us need to stop the kash-flow, it’s our only hope of ridding this grubby scourge on the species.

    Kontracts can be broken.

  45. Kim says:

    E must be stupid. The Kardashians are over. Everyone is over them. I can see some people watching MAYBE 1 more season but not 3. By season 3 they will have only a handful of viewers.

    People hate Kim and Kanye. He will not bring viewers to the show. He is looked at as a villian and not a villian people want to watch. This was really stupid move on Kims part to hook up with a guy the public abhors.

    Let me save you watching the show -they will air their fake relationship, they will get fake engaged, pretend to be having a baby then have a big blowout all fake for tv.

  46. mazzystar says:

    I was boycotting E for the Kardashians before there was even a formal boycott. The fairytale wedding was such a farce I just couldn’t take any more. Haven’t tuned in since– no E News, no fashion police, no Soup (& I do miss u Joel McHale, sniff)
    Good riddance.

  47. Vera says:

    I’m hoping it will die out before the third season of this contract so they won’t get renewed for another. Gosh, this means there is probably more drama on the horizon that is going to be thrown in everyone’s faces. Lovely.

  48. fortune teller says:

    This is what I think will happen:

    Kim and Kanye have fake engagement, then break up, then get back together because kim thinks she might be pregnant. Cameras follow her to a doctor’s office and she finds out she’s not pregnant. They break up again, and kim moves on to to another dude whose first name not only starts with a “k” but whose last name starts with one too !.

    Khloe has her baby and lives normal.

    Kourtney raises her 2 kids and isn’t actice much.

    Rob still wishes he was born a female so that he too could have made millions taking his clothes off.

    Kendal continues to model.

    Kylie (the most rebellious one) ends up becoming a teenaged mother and gets her own spin off.

  49. interesting says:

    This family has their own church that Kris Jenner created right? How ironic, she has a daughter who is unwed with a child and another one on the way, and another daughter who became famous off of a sex tape and then did playboy (with her mother’s permission and persuasion)…yup sounds like some good ole church going folk to me.

  50. Overrated says:

    Why why why did I watch the sex tape??? I can’t get Kim’s voice out of my head with her saying

    “Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit” over and over. :(

  51. BlackSwan777 says:

    I watched an episode of khloe and lamar last night for the first time last and I could actually feel my brain starting to shrink. How do these people have multiple reality shows? One is bad enough!

  52. Belle says:

    TEACHERS will NEVER make that amount of money! SAD!!!

  53. hillbillygirl45 says:

    I’ve had tummy issues for the past couple of days, and, this didn’t help the situation. I also don’t watch these no-talent, fame-hos, and, don’t know anyone who does. How could this have happened? Can you imagine what Kim’s face is gonna look like in three years? Lord have mercy…….This is all Seacrest’s fault. These freaks ain’t NEVER going away.

  54. Lizzie says:

    How hilarious! The kitty is much cuter. If Kim pulls her hair back a little tighter, her face might cave in. I have never and will never watch their shows or buy anything of theirs. Kourtney seems to be a somewhat grounded person, until you bring Scott into it. She can’t seeriously think he will ever stop drinking, partying, and cheating. If he hasn’t by now, he won’t. I feel so bad for Khloe and Lamar. They really love one another and would be happy if Kim & Kris left them completely alone. Everything they touch dies. My hope is Khloe escapes and Bruce takes his girls and run before Kris destroys them too. She is exploiting them in very inappropriate photo shoots all ready. They ought to be going to school, and all that comes with it – football games, dances, proms. Bruce grow a set and save your babies. I do so hope that Kris Humphries drags Kim through the mud and ruins that KarTrashian family for good. Then I won’t have to see or hear from them ever again!

    Jon Hamm really was right. It really does pay to be an idiot. Thank goodness, I never watched more than five minutes of the show. I felt my brain would start melting after that.
