Taking on the title as the family who hands-down rules the reality-show world, the Kardashian's seem to not only be everywhere, but they are also making quite the living doing so. As just released in this months issue of The Hollywood Reporter, the Kardashian Inc. empire which includes Kim, Courtney, Khloe and the rest of the family -- brought-in a whopping $65-million in 2010 alone!
Thats a whole lot of cash!
But the question of why they are so famous seems to be a reoccurring topic when weighing the success that the family has had. Mom/manager of the family, Kris Jenner speaks out on the issue and wants the public to know that their show's success is based on the fact that they're relatable.
Kris Jenner, the family's mom/manager, told The Hollywood Reporter, "We're just this big family with a lot of drama and a lot of issues, and there's someone here for everyone to relate to. I think if you've ever been embarrassed by your family - like your mother's a kook or your father's too strict - the show gives you hope. I've had so many people come over and say, 'I remember the episode where you were crying over blah, blah, blah and it helped me so much and I got through my dad's death because of you."
Kris talked about the infamous sex tape, which many believe launched Kim Kardashian into stardom, saying, "I thought, 'Oh well, there goes the reality show.' But you can either be a problem maker or a problem solver. And I'm a problem solver. My job as her mom and manager is to take care of the problem - whatever it is. I had to cry and get upset in the privacy of my own room and then come out and help her, because she's my daughter. What good is it for me to berate her?... All I knew was that I had to make some lemonade out of these lemons fast. Real fast. My job was trying to take my kids' 15 minutes and turn it into 30. Not only do we not have filters running through our brains, we don't edit ourselves... The scene where [Kourtney's boyfriend] Scott [Disick] is shoving money down the waiter's throat, that was hard to watch. But I said, 'Leave it alone. Just show it. It'll be fine.' I've said that every single time. And it's served me well from a business point of view. My fantasy is to have Keeping Up With Kardashians, Season 26..... Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids."
Can you believe how much the Kardashian's made in 2010?
