The 2013 Kardashian Christmas card was clearly an elaborate production, but you'll be astonished to know just how involved, and expensive, it was.

Famed photographer David LaChapelle, who choreographed the famous photo, got a whopping $250,000 paycheck for shooting the reality TV family.

A quarter of a million dollars. For this.

Fortunately for the E! royalty, their Keeping Up With The Kardashians' production company footed the bill, so they didn't have to shell out their own cash.

"It took three days just to put the set together," says a source of the holiday image. "David was extremely involved in all details of the set installation."

"It was Kim's idea to get David to do the family photo Christmas picture. At first, David balked because he does photo shoots for major magazines."

The first trailer for the upcoming ninth season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered last night on E! and teased emotional family moments galore.

The Kardashian krew aired their big Christmas special Sunday, but it's the family Christmas kard and the Season 9 KUWTK trailer that have people buzzing.

This is likely because unlike past seasons, there's almost no need to manufacture drama for ratings. For the Kardashians, this is as real as it gets.

Take a look at the official Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 9 preview below and see ...

Because this is Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and kompany, we've seen a lot of these events play out in the tabloids already. Now, they get the TV treatment.

Among the notable, dramatic Kardashian-tastic storylines to kome when the hit "reality" show returns for its ninth (!) season sometime in 2014?

  • Kris telling her kids that she and Bruce are separating.
  • Khloe Kardashian dealing with major anxiety issues as she deals with marital problems and paparazzi hounding her about Lamar Odom's crack addiction.
  • Lamar talking to Kourtney Kardashian on the phone, promising that he will do anything to be accepted by his estranged spouse and her family again.
  • Kourt looking pretty darn sexy on vacation. Yowza!
  • Kanye West's proposal to Kim Kardashian.

Should be an eventful season, to say the least.

On last night's Keeping Up With the Kardashians: A Very Merry Christmas special, the E! stars revealed their highly anticipated, over-the-top holiday card.

It is, in a word, busy. See for yourself below:

Kardashian Christmas Card 2013

The intricate, high-fashion photo set in a ransacked casino or carnival-like room of sorts has a lot going on, most notably Kim Kardashian's chest.

The whole family is dressed in black, but it's Kim who commands the attention, standing on a staircase in a cleavage baring, body-hugging dress.

Siter Khloe Kardashian is seen with Kourtney's son Mason, while Kourt herself clings to daughter Penelope and Kylie and Kendall Jenner strike poses.

Kris Jenner, too, is in the forefront (as if she'd have it any other way), while estranged husband Bruce makes a surprise appearance in the background.

Noticeably absent from the pic? North West. And the men of the house.

The status of Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian remains unclear.

But there is apparently no such uncertainty surrounding Lamar's relationship with his father-in-law: he and Bruce Jenner are total besties!

Sources tell TMZ that Odom and Jenner have been hanging out a lot in Malibu, ever since the latter officially separated from Kris Jenner and moved full-time into his own place.

On the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe continued to struggle with her crumbling marriage to troubled husband Lamar Odom.

On top of Khloe Kardashian's plight, her brother Rob wrestled with depression and body issues and Kylie Jenner turned 16, which was like a massive deal.

Come along for THG's +/- KUWTK season finale recap!

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick discuss Lamar Odom's flakiness of late, and start to get annoyed when plans with the couple seem in doubt again.

Imagine how Khloe feels right about now. Minus 600.

When the NBA star’s agent called looking for him, Kourtney got a better idea of what her sister has been dealing with. And it's far from good. Minus 400.

This week's Keeping Up With the Kardashians was all about Kris Jenner's venture into the world of talk show hosting. In other words, it was not good.

As you likely recall, not even the birth of North West or the non-stop tabloid fascination with Kim Kardashian & Co. could save this unmitigated disaster.

Still, it was time to watch it unfold with the benefit (?) of hindsight.

Check out our Keeping Up With the Kardashians recap below!

Kathie Lee Gifford sighting? Minus 100 right off the bat.

Fortunately, we all know Kris' dream will be short-lived, so that makes it a little easier to stomach what she's trying to do, knowing that she fails at something.

We don't wish failure or unhappiness upon anyone, for the record, but when it's Kris trying to squeeze Kim Kardashian and siblings dry? We're okay with it.

Plus 400 for knowing right off the bat that this tanks.

Bruce Jenner turns 64 years old today.

And, although he's now separated from Kris Jenner, the First Family of Reality Television made a point of celebrating with its patriach last night.

Khloe Kardashian was especially open about the occasion, posting a silly photo (below) of herself at dinner with her siblings and Tweeting of Bruce:

"Such a fun early Birthday dinner for my Brucey. "I am so lucky!!! I was blessed with TWO phenomenal fathers!!! Family first."

Khloe Kardashian with a Mustache

Khloe later added a photo of a cake decorated with a golf ball and another with a helicopter and aded: "He deserves not one but TWO cakes. A few of his favorite things."

Kim Kardashian welcome to North West on Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but those looking for an all-access ticket to her birth were let down.

To be sure, a great deal of drama surrounded Kim’s delivery as the reality star gave birth five weeks early after finding out she was suffering from toxemia.

“Basically, I have to deliver the baby right now,” said a surprisingly calm Kim to Khloe, though momager Kris freaked. How did it all play out on TV and life?

Check out our Keeping Up With the Kardashians recap below!

Weirdly, or maybe not weirdly considering who we're dealing with, it was Kris Jenner who gave the green light for the girls to go to the hospital. Minus 100.

There, Khloe filmed Kim on her phone. “I’m excited to meet you,” Kim said to her future offspring, noting that “daddy” Kanye West was on his way.

Unlike Kourtney Kardashian pulling out her baby in all its glory, there was zero footage of Kim. They cut to Khloe telling Bruce that the baby arrived.

He may have been absent from the engagement celebration, but Bruce Jenner will play a key role in the upcoming Kim Kardashian-Kanye West wedding.

By walking the bride down the aisle!

As previously noted, the estranged husband of Kris Jenner was not invited to Kanye and Kim's night on Monday, allegedly because he barely knows the rapper and West simply never asked Bruce to attend.

But insiders confirm to TMZ that Kardashian still views Bruce as her father and - as he did when she exchanged vows with Kris Humphries - plans to have Jenner walk her down the aisle on the third Big Day.

Bruce Jenner was not present at the surprise Kim Kardashian engagement event Monday night and there was a very good reason for his absence:

Kim's step-father wasn't invited! Ouch!

Insiders tell TMZ that Bruce was not included on the guest list, wasn't aware Kim and Kanye were engaged until after the fact and has never even had a "real conversation" with West.
