Kim Kardashian’s trying to make more than $20 million off her wedding


Here are some new photos of Kim Kardashian leaving a studio in Studio City, CA yesterday. Fame/Flynet notes: “The studio worker who walked Kim out couldn’t stop staring at her butt as she got into her car.” LOL. Would you be able to avoid staring at her ass? I think I would probably be open about it. I would ask her to turn around so I could look at her butt. Even though it looks so strange and inflated in photos, I would imagine it’s quite something in real life.

Anyway, Kim and Kanye’s wedding is about nine days away – their leaked wedding invite says May 24th. So, we’re getting a slew of wedding-tinged tabloid reports, some of which sound like BS, some of which are rather interesting. In Touch Weekly (via The Daily Mail) says that Kim has been “cutting deals left and right” as a way to profit from this wedding, the biggest deal is with (of course) E!. Kim is apparently allowing E! to film “everything leading up to and after” the wedding, partly to defer part of the cost of the huge blowout Kanye wants. Kim and Kanye played hardball with E!, allegedly, demanding $15 million for the rights to exclusive wedding footage. Plus, Lucifer’s Homegirl is trying to get some magazine to pay $4 million for the first photos. And they want “decadent food, drinks and goodies to be paid for or sponsored by brands that wanted exposure.” The Kimye Wedding ™, sponsored by Truck Nutz.

Meanwhile, Radar says that Jay-Z has finally signed on to be Kanye’s Best Man, and Bey will be in attendance too. I’m guessing Solange is not invited. Radar’s story is full of funny details but I think it’s probably BS – still, you can read the whole thing here.

    I honestly don’t think Kim and her family are as rich as they like to pretend. That’s why they’re constantly doing their t.v show. They don’t have enough recurring revenue to keep up with their “image”once the show is over. The Kardashian kollection is ALWAYS on sale, their Dash stores are a joke. I can bet that E! Pays the rent for those stores as well. When their show first started, Kourtney and Khloe lived together in a modest townhouse. And Kim lived in a condo. Plus, the house she’s building with Kanye isn’t even close to being finished. And I’m sure it’s not because of “designs by kanye”, either. I believe nothing printed about this family regarding money

    • Jay says:

      Mmmm I don’t know about that. I think they’re pretty loaded. But I do agree that if they stopped all the TV shows/endorsements right now, they’d run out of money pretty quickly given their extravagant lifestyle.

      • jade says:

        I doubt it. If they’re so loaded, why did Khloe and Kourtney live together?! Even on they’re show, Kim’s accountant told her to stop buying so many clothes because she wouldn’t be able to afford her house. They didn’t open their store Dash until 2006, the same time they started filming their show.
        They spend so much on clothes and cars. They don’t have the capital to continue their “empire”.

        I’m not attacking, just stating some data l facts LOL

    • Mylene - Montreal says:

      i’m agree with u .. they look to have expensive VERY expensive life so they need to pay for that …

    • juniper says:

      I read somewhere that Kris was left with a estate of about 100 million when Daddy Kardashian died. Adn that was a while ago now, so if those numbers are from then – well, taking into consideration inflation (and not of Kim’s ass) – I think they are very rich.

      • Bridget says:

        Doubtful – Kris and Robert were long divorced and both remarried. Plus she cheated on him an awful lot throughout their marriage.

      • gg says:

        She probably blew all that many years ago on junk she didn’t need. Ask Mike Tyson, Toni Braxton, Courtney Love, MC Hammer, et al. about how that works.

    • Jana says:

      They’re definitely rich individually, but Kayne is supposedly worth $120 mil alone. None of the Kardashians are worth that kind of money by themselves.

      • Macey says:

        i dont know about that. tons of rumors swirling about him hurting for money in a big way since his tours and albums arent selling well. Someone also claimed they were rushing to get that house done so they can put it on the market right away b/c he’s already lost money on it.
        doesnt matter how much you make if you’re lifestyle is spending more than that.

      • Jana says:

        @Macey Hence the supposedly in there. I don’t know what his sales are like, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out that they’ve dropped in recent years. I agree with your last part. He may end up a broke man with an expensive house.

      • Dommeh Dearest says:

        Least he’ll have golden toilets.

    • cut-the-crap says:

      Reality tv stars are not as rich as they portray themselves to be. A net worth of 40 million is not the same as having 40 million in the bank. After the wages of producers, directors, cameraman etc are paid, plus network profits, as well as dividing the money, there wouldn’t be that much left for each family member. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a hell of a lot of money, but it’s not britney spears money or oprah money. Taking into account how extravagant their lives are ,the money would dry up very quickly if they stopped everything now. They don’t have the empire they like to portray. Their clothing line will not stand the test of time, it won’t stand the test of 5 yrs. The only thing keeping it alive are preteen girls who blindly buy everything kardashian brand. But those girls will grow up, and the next generation of girls will look up to some other younger bimbo. Kardashians will be old and irrelevent right by then.

      • denisemich says:

        Rich people are cheap!
        It sounds like an oxymoron but it is really true. This is really true for the rich and famous.

        Kim is onto her 3rd wedding. If she can get it for almost free, why not!

  2. Audrey says:

    Jimmy Fallon had the best list of pros and cons about this mess

    Pro: it’s going to be a lovely, intimate ceremony
    con: which will air on the next season premiere of KUWTK

    I was dying laughing at that one and some other gems.

  3. Mindy says:

    Who the hell CARES?!?!?!

    And just when is that b-rocket going to be ready to blast that whole family (and the Lohans) directly INTO THE SUN?!?!

    You know, if all the bloggers JUST STOPPED REPORTING on every damn fart these no talent money grabbing celebutards made, there would be ZERO INTEREST from the public in them. I’m BEGGING YOU, START A CAMPAIGN TO STOP THE DAMN MADNESS ALREADY. They are a waste of the earth’s resources.

    • Dawn says:

      Well said Mindy and I so agree. She has gotten a ton of milage out hanging out with Paris Hilton and that sex tape. She is so vile and cheap and KanYe West will be deserving of everything he get once this sham is over.

    • Pandy says:

      I’m with you on this. We stopped hearing about Parasite Hilton and now you never see things about her anymore – and nobody misses her! Time to kick the Kartrashians to the kurb as well. I’m happy to hear nothing more about any of them until the inevitable divorce.

    • gg says:

      I am definitely on your team, Mindy. This family is obscene.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Team mindy all the way.

    • Dommeh Dearest says:

      This site and many others will never stop covering the Kartrashians. They bring in clicks and therefore keeps people like us coming here. Even if it’s to trash them.

      • gefeylich says:

        Yeah, but those clicks only benefit the websites posting the photos and items. The Kartrashians don’t make any money off them (although you know PMK is working mightily to amend that). Will E! make any money off of this Second E! Kartrashian Wedding Circus? Don’t know. People do love trainwrecks. It’s sure to be eminently mockable for those hate-watching it. And for the idiots who worship the Kartrashians it will be more “gee, they’re stupid, classless and talentless just like me, and they have wedding coverage ON TV.” Maybe that will be worth something to advertisers.

    • yolo112 says:

      Yahoo news had a story about her and I really don’t even bother reading the actual article, I just scroll down to read all the amazing comments and no joke, like 50 people posted the same thing over and over again…something like (in all caps) please stop articles about her, this is not news. I thought it was a computer glitch for a minute. It was SOOOO funny to see…hahahahahaa…aahhh…good times. *teammindy*

  4. FingerBinger says:

    I don’t believe Kris Jenner is trying to get 4 million for the first pictures. After that Kris Humphries sham marriage/wedding, even Kris Jenner knows she can’t get a butt load of money from any magazine for a Kim wedding .

  5. Alexi says:

    Second that. Even in the show Khloe didn’t stop telling Kim how stupid it is for her to be buying couture if she cannot afford it.

    • yolo112 says:

      OOOOOORRRRRR fit into it!!! what’s the point of buying couture if you have to have it all altered to fit your size 2 waist and size 2 ass… IMO, that makes everything custom, not couture..

  6. Nicolette says:

    E! should be renamed K!, it’s the Kardashian channel for the most part it seems. IDK, I just think it’s disgusting how everything is about the almighty dollar to these people. So she’s getting married. Again. And she should make $20 million for that? It’s just insanity to me.

  7. Anne says:

    Ordinary wedding planning is stressful enough, but with all the hustling required to get other people to pay for your wedding added on top of it all? Well, good luck to the two of them. Shamelessness is going to be quite tiring.

  8. D says:

    That’s just greedy!

  9. aquarius64 says:

    The Carters are going after all? Boy, they REALLY want to staunch the PR bleeding that elevator fight is causing.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      AQUA exactly what I was thinking! Sorry they caved. Supposedly Jay-Z already sent a consolation present so this is a new twist.

      Absolutely detest ALL of them. Hope they open a giant sinkhole in the earth under the crushing weight of their combined egoes.

    • OriginalCrystal says:

      Um, it’s from RadarOnline. I swear Beyonce could buy a ham sandwich tomorrow and you guys would cry PR. It’s getting hilarious now.
      Everyone here acting like VigilantCitizen.

      • Dommeh Dearest says:

        Welcome to the site, you’ll notice that happens a lot here. Sadly.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Um, you might not be correct. Blind Gossip has a scenario that makes sense:

        “But then… something changed. A member of the second couple agreed to give a member of the first couple total control over his business affairs. Now, all of a sudden, the first couple IS going to the second couple’s event! That’s because their attendance was part of the business transaction.

        The relationship between these two couples is NOT friendship. It’s all business, baby!”

      • OriginalCrystal says:

        LOL. Blind gossip ??
        Might as well link me to Just because it makes sense, doesn’t mean it’s true. I mean, I’m all about getting my hate on with celebs but let’s not act like blind items and rumours have any truth to them. Let’s just stick to hating on things we know are definitely true.

  10. dorothy says:

    I think they have money, but I also think they spend an enormous amount on keeping up the image. More than likely they live beyond their means.

  11. swack says:

    TMZ is reporting that JayZ is not going to be the best man. Also that the prenup has not been signed yet. Thought that was in the bag.

    • Dawn says:

      If I hear one more time that this prenup is going well unlike with Humphries I will know what liars they are. She has to keep kicking Humphries when he totallly ignore her ugly ass. Every time she uses his name or his likeness she should be made to PAY him because we all know if the shoe was on the other foot she would be demanding her $$$$.

      • swack says:

        What does this have to do with Humphries? It was stated about a month ago that the prenup between Kanye and Kim had been worked out. So why wasn’t it signed then? Now they are putting a spin on it that he changed management and it hasn’t been signed. Just another way to keep the drama going IMHO.

  12. Kiddo says:

    Well, as far as I’m concerned, the sponsors are wasting their money. I have not 2 F*s to give, I don’t care who attends, and what dog and pony show is presented, I’m not interested in watching it and won’t.

    Who needs to see this phony crap?

  13. Allie says:

    Does anyone watch Made In Chelsea? That looks like the model guy that Stephanie brought with her from home.

  14. Ag says:

    i mean, seriously, how much money do you actually need in a lifetime? what is wrong with there people?

  15. Christin says:

    You would think sponsors would have learned since that last joke of a wedding.

    To keep the family’s money flow going, will she need to remarry every two years?

  16. juniper says:

    Kim is one of those unbearable bitches that is going to be on her 7th wedding to some large pocketbook and will still be planning big ‘white’ wedding extravaganzas.

  17. word says:

    She always walks with her head down now…like she’s trying to be demure or something. Get outta here with that.

    • The Original G says:

      Yes. I noticed that. Like she’s a walking perfume ad or something.

      • nofkksgiven says:

        its to change the angle of her face so her nose doesn’t look so short and far apart from her lips….its to try to hide that botched nose job

    • NewWester says:

      I think she does that to balance herself when walking. That fake ass of hers must throw off her centre of gravity

  18. The Original G says:

    If I were Hermes, I would pay her to stop carrying my bags.

    • Lora says:

      Hahahahaha, good one 🙂

    • Maggie says:

      Speaking of bags…that atrocious hand painted Christmas gift from Kanye was worn just once, right? That’s his taste level. And he’s running the wedding. It’s going to be a katastrophy.

  19. daisyfly says:

    This is going to be a Wal-Mart wedding on a Cartier budget so she needs all the cash she can get. Also, divorce lawyers cost money and she’s just preparing for the inevitable.

  20. Lora says:

    Remember that one episode, were kim told, that if she continue with all the shopping, she can’t afford this dream house she wants to buy? What do you think is her worth?

    • word says:

      Kanye’s buying that dream house for her. I think if she had kept her money instead of spending like crazy, she’d have more money. I wonder what she’s going to do when Kanye doesn’t make as much money? Husband number 4…

    • Joan says:

      I for one have never believed the Kardashians have money….they live this life they want the public to believe they have ,to fit in with other celebrities….they ‘re both broke…because anyone with real money doesn’t brag about how much they spend..and about Jay and bey coming to the wedding,I will believe it when I see it.

  21. judyjudy says:

    Truck Nutz…OMG….!

  22. Lizzy1013 says:

    Hate her, love her hair here tho

  23. Stef Leppard says:

    And water is wet. That’s it for obvious news today. Thanks for tuning in!

  24. lucy says:

    I do not wish to think about her butt.

  25. PLEASE WISE UP says:

    Sick of all the media hype. They are the ones that continually push certain people down your throat. Also, most of the stories are pure speculation and don’t have much truth to them. Yet everybody takes today’s news for gospel. It’s like the dumbing down of the general public. If these are the people the media hold in such high regard, what does that say to the rest of the world about us? Sad really. They are probably a little better off than that other reality family that just filed bankruptcy and had their mansion foreclosed on. The ones that just the week before were being written about how rich they were and how much money they spent. All the guy really owned was a two bedroom condo somewhere that they are having to move into. People are so gullible today.

  26. Stephanie says:

    She’s disgusting.

  27. Anon says:

    Notbing will convince me this will be an actual marriage as in legal paper liscence.. Now if moved to Italy makes it even more suspect.. Total BS ans scam

  28. beachy says:

    She has so much junk in her lips, she can’t close her mouth. She looks like a mouth-breather.

  29. Fran says:

    The guy in these pic is Stephanie Pratt’s friend who was also on Made in Chelsea.

  30. Lou says:

    She’s getting married the same day as me? Noooooooooooooo!
