Kim Kardashian Tops Reality TV Rich List
Screen queen Kim Kardashian has topped the Reality TV Richest List, as revealed by the British Sun on Sunday, thanks to a fortune put at well over $63m.
As if you’d forgotten, Kim, who turns 34 next month, first came to our attention after winning a nearly $5m lawsuit when a sex tape with ex-partner Ray Jay went viral.
TV station E! then approached her seven years ago to make reality program Keeping up with the Kardashians. So far there have been nine seasons and four spin-offs. In 2012, a further three seasons were agreed in a deal worth over $40m.
For each episode, Kim Kardashian gets around $80,000.
Her other lucrative exploits include contracts with slimming supplement QuickTrim and the nearly $2m she was offered to promote the ShoeDazzle website.
She can also earn thousands of dollars for tweeting about products to her followers, who number more than 23.5 million. This summer, she released a mobile phone game about her life as a reality TV star. It’s said that Kim Kardashian: Hollywood could double her income by 2015.
Then there were the TV and magazine deals from her 72-day marriage to first husband Kris Humphries, a basketball player, again totalling millions of dollars.
However, given her legendary spending habits (a $115,000 watch, a $10,000 ring and a $100,00 splurge at Hermes), not to mention the homes on Bel Air and Beverly Hills, it’s just as well she keeps the dollars rolling in.
Kim is, of course, married to rapper Kanye West, and, mom to baby North.
The family are currently hanging out Down Under in Australia.
