[Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian made a lot of dough together once upon a time this year]
‘The pay is crap, the stiletto time is uber high for the lives of America’s top reality TV stars–but the endorsements and back handers to espouse a message and set a trend of pop culture for another celebrity, aren’t bad’–the Kardashian sister’s story this year as California’s reigning version of Charlie’s Angels TV entertainment.
Well, this is no surprise, Kim Kardashian is listed as the highest earning reality TV star of America this year. No one blurs reality and surreality quite like California. It’s what we do. The best.
Having a family focus and creating employment, Kim’s strategy as a star to make ‘family the big thing’ she’s about; has garnered Kim’s two sisters as top-earning reality TV stars too in a new year-end list of rankings, The Daily Beast said Monday.
$6 million in reported earnings is what the Daily Beast rank Kim on. She’s a cover girl, a sports and military locker room pin up star. One of the key stars of E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians Ryan Seacrest (really Kim) produced show, with a line of merchandising products ranging from timepieces to tennis shoes.
The beast reports Kim’s fortune is in-the-main amassed from the overall takings of the Dash Boutiques, a trendy chain of designer retail stores with locations in Los Angeles, Miami, and now Manhattan. A nice value add from Kim in steering information this way into he sisters collective brand power. (eg: spread your fame asap, and hedge your bets).
The Kardashian sisters, who have some of the best tabloid story line angles each week, just released a new book, Kardashian Konfidential, that has already sold 13,000 copies in its first week of release. Endorsement deals with Sephora and Bebe beauty brands are also their thing.
Top 10 Top-Earning Reality TV Stars are:
1. Kim Kardashian
2. Lauren Conrad ($5 million)
3. Bethanny Frankel ($4 million)
4.) Audrina Patridge ($3.5 million)
5.) Kate Gosselin ($3.5 million)
6.) Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
7.) Khloe Kardashian
8.) Kourtney Kardashian
9.) Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio
10.) Kendra Wilkinson
This list is very MTV and E! Entertainment weighted. For example TLC‘s Sarah Palin gets $1 million per episode for her reality TV Show, Sarah Palin‘s Alaska and yet this is not reflected in these results. Five shows have gone to air already (eg: $5 million worth of Sarah, and she’s not even registering in this list).
Having said that, Kim’s earnings from her Dazzle merchandising empire with LA power lawyer, Robert Shapiro are not included in this figure. Kim is mega rich and so smart more than these stats reflect. A smart move as she’s hated enough already by jealous types. Congrats to the kids of Jersey Shore too.
