KEEPING UP with the actual Kardashians could be a costly undertaking, especially considering how much the famous family will be paid for their new reality show.
Next month, The Kardashians will air on Hulu, the online streaming service owned by the Walt Disney Company.
And the show’s stars are set to get a hefty pay rise when they join Mickey’s empire.
According to Variety, the reality TV salary is worth at least $100 million.
Momager Kris Jenner told the magazine that the green deal was all the motivation the family needed to open their doors to the cameras again.
“Money still matters,” Kris said when asked about rebooting the show. “I think anyone would be silly to say that money doesn’t matter anymore.”
The new show is expected to be a little different from their previous long-running reality adventure.
Hulu would launch two seasons of the series, with a total of 40 episodes.
The family also has an option for future projects with Disney.
According to Variety, The Kardashians will be presented in a more documentary style, with “opening scenes shot overhead with drones.”
And the topics will echo the real-life sagas of its stars, including Kim’s romance with Pete Davidson and her divorce from Kanye West.
The sizable salary will be split equally among all family members, which Khloe said was essential.
“It certainly played a role because we spend so much of our personal lives on entertainment,” Khloé said of the financial terms of the deal. “We still have our private family conversations, and we’re pretty brutal, me and my sisters, with what we’ll or won’t agree to.
“But not all money is good money. It has to fit well, and Hulu was just the perfect fit for us.”
The nine-figure deal is just a fraction of the families’ net worth, with clothing and fragrance lines and a plethora of other endorsements allowing the Kardashians to live a life of luxury.
But all that money is turning some supporters against them.
KHLOE BECOMES GUCCI
Earlier this month, fans tore Khloe for ‘flaunting her wealth’ as her three-year-old daughter True posed in a $1,300 Gucci coat and $4,000 handbag.
Khloe, 37, took to Instagram to post photos of True posing in a spring print Gucci outfit.
The children’s designer tweed coat included pastel shades of blue, orange, pink and green and costs $1,290.
True paired her jacket with a kids’ jacquard dress in a rainbow Gucci print that went for $632 and $544 Fendi boots.
The toddler was holding a dazzled Judith Leiber handbag in the shape of a basketball to show his dad some love.
True’s bedazzled handbag cost Khloe $3,995.
The toddler smiled in snaps posted to Khloe’s Instagram as she modeled her nearly $6.5,000 designer outfit.
Khloe captioned her post: “We Gucci.”
Fans were quick to criticize Khloe’s extravagant spending on her child.
One wrote in Khloe’s comments, “Still flaunting your money? Glad your kid has Gucci.”
A second posted, “This kid’s outfit costs more than I make in a month.”
Another remarked, “It must be nice to be rich,” while a fourth fan said, “These kids are so exploited.”
A fifth added angrily: ‘We know you have money. Hope you donate to your charity for those not as lucky as you and your child.’
Not to be outdone, Kendall has come under fire for gifting one of her personal horses a custom Hermes saddle, worth nearly nine thousand dollars.
KIM’S CHILDREN’S CARS
And Kim has come under fire for showing off her children’s luxury car collection, which includes a garage full of mini cars, ranging from an orange Lamborghini to a pink Mercedes G-wagon.
The fleet is worth thousands of dollars because the Lamborghini and the Mercedes – of which they have two – cost $300 each.
The bright red Ford Mustang convertible sells for $200, and the pink trucks are between $300 and $600.
Kim’s garage at her Hidden Hills home also includes several electric scooters, a monster truck, and an ATV.
Kim faced backlash for the “overdone and unnecessary” post, with critics saying she lacked “empathy” in sharing the photo amid a pandemic.
One wrote: “Meanwhile, business owners have to close, people lose their jobs, get sick, people die, people dip into their savings to survive, people unable to see and to touch their loved ones for months because of this terrible pandemic.
“But I’m so thrilled to see the fleet of toy cars in your garage.”
