The Kardashian women are getting paid HOW much for Keeping Up With?
When reports emerged this week claiming that the most lucrative family in the world, the Kardashians are getting paid $100 million for a further four seasons of their popular E! reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians we honestly lost all faith in humanity right there and then. Thankfully they’re not. It’s just $80 million.
No wonder, Khloe recently claimed the show “brings the family closer together,” as the klan are getting paid $80 million to have cameras follow their day-to-day life, which as entertaining as it all is for the rest of us is one of the most absurd things we’ve ever heard. Do we really care about the Kardashians that much? Sadly, apparently so.
NBC called the initial $100 million reports “grossly inaccurate,” but according to sources, the only gross inaccuracy is their claims. Insiders say the cast of KUWTK will get close to a cool $80 mil with ratings bonuses for just three seasons with the option for a fourth. But that also includes all of the work they do for the network. You know, all those grueling hours they put in behind the scenes.
And that’s not even the half of it. All dudes from the show have their own separate contract. Scott and Bruce paid an undisclosed sum away from the Kardashians while Rob will only be paid for episodes which he appears. Thanks for that Mom!

The upcoming tenth season of KUWTK promises to be the most intriguing yet. With Bruce’s alleged transition reportedly being addressed in the show the family cancelled ALL PRESS ahead of the season premiere on March 22. The Kardashians turning down press? So you just know that something big is coming our way.
Bruce will be handed his own E! series following his transition from man to woman, although it’s believed that the star has put the whole process on hold as police investigate a fatal car crash involving the 65-year-old on January 31, which left several injured and one woman dead.
