Fans all know that Keeping Up With The Kardashians won’t be ending with Season 17 if Kris Jenner gets her way.
She’s working on extending her family’s massive contracts — and with the recent ratings, that should be no trouble.
But Kris is reportedly making a gamble by demanding the network cough up twice as much money. Will E! meet her massive momager demands?
Kris Jenner knows that her children, though adults, aren’t going to momage themselves.
She’s said to be currently in negotiations with to extend the current Keeping Up With The Kardashians contracts for her and her brood.
The current deal for the whole bunch nets the family $150 … but that’s the deal laid out in 2017.
Now, it’s 2019, and Kris knows that recent ratings with Khloe’s multiple cheating scandals from the same baby daddy prove how much the show is worth.
How much, exactly? RadarOnline reports that Kris is hunting for $300 to extend the contract. That’s right: double.
"Kris is so stressed out right now," an insider says of Kris.
"Which is why," the source explains. "She needed to take a vacation."
"The finale ratings were everything she was hoping for and more," the insider affirms.
The source explains that it’s no longer in Kris’ court: "So now it is all on the network."
Kris isn’t the only member of her family who has high hopes for the family’s future income, and Khloe’s baby daddy isn’t the only bringer of drama.
"Kim is on her way to becoming a lawyer," the insider notes. "And Kanye is going to be more involved in the show than ever.”
That second part felt oddly like reading a threat, but okay.
“Kim thinks that is definitely worth a lot more money," the source expresses.
The insider continues: "because he is bringing so many new viewers in right now."
And let’s not forget Kris’ two youngest daughters.
"As far as Kendall and Kylie are concerned," the source notes.
Kendall is a world class supermodel now," the insider points out.
"And," the source adds. "Kylie is a billionaire."
"This was not the case in 2017," the insider suggests. That may be true, but they were both pretty much there.
Even Rob Kardashian brings something to the table (beside his sock brand).
He’s not just available as a full-time star — he’s also a father to an unbelievably precious little girl, Dream.
According to the report, "all of the Kardashian kids are going to be included in the new deal."
"They all have families now," the source points out. "And they didn’t all have kids with the initial deal."
Genuinely hilarious to us that RadarOnline‘s source did not seem to single out Kourtney from any of them.
300 is a lot of millions, but considering how many people it involves and how many seasons, Kris hopes that the network will see things her way.
"Kris and her kids really think that they are giving a fair deal with this," the insider expresses.
The source concludes: "It is up to the network now."
That’s all very interesting.
We should, as always, take reports about private, high-stakes negotiations with a grain of salt until they have some sort of confirmation.
