A new report has surfaced claiming Kim Kardashian is ready to quitting Keeping Up With the Kardashians, triggering an all-out WAR with her famous family.
No, this isn't a report from The Onion, nor is it April Fool's. But it does come straight from celebrity gossip magazine Life & Style, which isn't too different ...
The magazine alleges that the newly-married Mrs. Kanye West “wants out of the family business" and that the rest of her krew is "in a tailspin" over this.
“She feels like she has outgrown reality TV,” explains a so-called “insider” who clearly can't have too much inside knowledge if he or she believes that.
Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, according to the publication, are “pointing the finger at Kim for costing them a staggering $500 million in future revenue.”
Five hundred million dollars? Where did that huge figure possibly come from?
“If Kim walks, their fear of cancelation could become reality,” adds the mag, without saying if anyone really fears that or if the idea is even on E!'s radar.
“Without the series or its spinoffs, there’s a devastating domino effect."
As a “brand and money expert” tells the outlet, “if the show is canceled, the E! mainstays could lose hundreds of millions of dollars, up to $500 million."
Being taken off the air means not just lost paychecks from the show.
"There’s less exposure [for the Kardashians overall] ... their many endorsements, licensing, the [deal] with Sears, their makeup line, the Dash stores, etc.”
We'll acknowledge that if you no longer watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online, their other business ventures would take a hit to some degree.
However ... there's no rift between Kim Kardashian and her sisters.
If anything, she's more likely to keep this going now than ever, as it's the key to building her new hospital (and her brand, and a life with 'Ye and Nori).
As for her family, you can bet that like Ray J on top of her in the Kim Kardashian sex tape, when it comes to milking their cash cow, they are all in.
