Are We Done Keeping Up With The Kardashians?
Have their 15 minutes finally passed ?
You may not have to keep up with the Kardashians much longer.
Everything the reality family touches turns absolutely toxic with party promoters, magazine editors and television execs all scrambling to blacklist them, insiders told The Post.
Funny how once they attached their name to SEARS, SEARS is now closing up shop.
Ratings for the family’s reality show have plummeted, sales of magazines with Kim Kardashian’s mug go unsold, and her products are unmarketable, insiders say.
Promoters were giving out thousands of dollars so Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloe would hit their hot spots. And Kim was once paid $600,000 to spend New Year’s Eve at Tao Las Vegas.
According to some club promoters and publicist, that kind of gwap just isn’t going to be rolling in anymore.
“I’d pay her $600,000 personally not to go to Red Egg,” said Travis Bass, referring to the Chinatown hot spot he co-owns. “Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us. We’d have a meeting Monday and talk about how that happened.”
It seems that the Kardashian brand took a huge hit after Kim and now ex-husband Kris Humphries divorced after only 72 days of marriage. A large majority of people are convinced that the marriage was a sham to begin with and the court of public opinion threw the book at the reality show star AND her family.
E!’s Kardashian TV franchise “Keeping up with the Kardashians” suffered a 14 percent dip in Nielsen ratings, from 3.5 million viewers per episode last season to 3 million this season.
Circulation at Us Weekly, In Touch, Life & Style and OK! dropped about 18 percent when a Kardashian was on the cover in December, publishers said.
Even shoe maker Skechers ditched Kim as the face of the company in 2011 they’ve replaced her with a French bulldog.
To make matters worse Khloe Kardashian’s paternity controversy that has been brewing over the last few days isn’t exactly helping the first family of psuedo-celebrity gain any favor with people.
So what do you think?
