Pimp Mama Kris has made some Lucifer-level deals in her day, but the latest Kardashian contract extension with E! is a new high since she gets to double dip her paws in this $150 million kitty.
TMZ reports our long national nightmare is about to get longer. The Kardashians just inked a five-season contract, taking the show to at least 2019. They’re getting $30 million per season. JUST TO SIT AND EAT SALADS AND TALK IN A HAMSTER DECIBEL! It’s a boost since their last contract in 2015, which netted the koven $100 million spread over five seasons. TMZ’s source says the deal is structured to allow the family to divvy the money among themselves, which is kind of horse shit. My mom used to let my brother and I do that on road trips with the Chick-fil-A (I know, bad gay-in-training)…and I NEVER saw half the nuggets I was entitled to.
Anyway, what reeks of shady business dealings is how Kris Jenner gets a particularly hefty take. Another TMZ report says that since she’s the girls’ pimp, she pockets $15 million in manager’s fees right out of the gate. THEN, because she is also part of the “talent” (insert “it takes talent to oversee a lip kit line?” joke here), she gets to take some of the remaining $135 million. Before we all laugh at the magical sorcery of excessively capitalizing off one’s offspring like this, it should be noted that Kris is cutting her girls a deal. She only takes a 10% manager’s fee when the going rate is 15%, so this is just like a Lord & Taylor friends and family coupon, y’all!
I mean, I guess it makes total sense for Kris to rake in all that cash from her daughters doing nothing. Plus, her new Cruella de Cash lewk doesn’t come cheap!
