As the outstanding momager she has been for more than a decade, Kris Jenner recently helped in sealing a $150 million deal for the family’s reality TV show – Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kris has, over time, catapulted her family to superstardom and has somehow managed to make everyone happy with the way they share the serious money they are making from starring on the show.
The new deal which is a huge raise from the last one will see the family produce five more seasons of the popular reality show.
While there have been different speculation about how the money is shared between the family members, Kris set some records straight in a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres show. Kris, 62, revealed she doesn’t always call the shots on how the money gets to her many children and growing brood of grandkids.
When asked if she is the one who decides how the money should be split between her daughters and their various beaus, Kris said;
“It’s kind of a group decision”
“And I’m lucky if I even get paid, by the time the girls get finished with me,” she joked.
“Everybody gets paid pretty much equally because we all film a lot and we all work hard. And we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade so everybody’s happy. They’re really happy.”
This shuts down rumours about the family fighting over who gets the lion share. She added that all of her girls have other businesses outside of the reality show which makes them even more money than what the show has to offer. However, the show serves as a marketing strategy for their private brands.
“Because the show is in over 167 countries around the world and it really is a great foundation for all the other things we do, so one helps the other,” she said.
“When our deal came up and they said, ‘do you want to do it again?’ And we all took a vote and we all agreed that we’d really would miss it if we weren’t doing it,” Kris Jenner confirmed.
Following ten years and 14 seasons on the air, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians show is still waxing strong though ratings keeps falling. Irrespective of any challenges, the show is still lucrative for E! as well as the various Kardashian family members who continue to make the headlines with their drama-filled lives.
