The reality TV star could retire tomorrow and live off her reported worth of $40 million for the rest of her life and that of her unborn child. Instead, she’s vowed to film “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” for at least two more seasons. What is she looking for? More money?
According to Life&Style Magazine this month, Kim’s baby has hardly slowed her down given the outrageous distances she’s been flying and gigs she’s been hosting across the world, all because she’s getting more papers. Kim’s pregnancy has already cost her a lucrative deal with a liqueur brand, Midori, and so it looks as though she’s more concerned about keeping the cash flowing.
But is Kim getting tired of it all? “There’s a lot of a growing pain,” Kim mused about pregnancy. “But I have heard it’s all worth it.” Meanwhile, boyfriend/rapper Kanye West is now being attacked by mom/manager Kris Jenner for encouraging Kim quit reality TV. Kris believes such a move could cost the family tens of millions.
Kanye, on the other hand, believes Kim’s career will skyrocket if she leaves reality television for good. A source told OK Magazine that “Kanye has been watching her shows and he thinks they are demeaning to her and the rest of her family.”
Big question is: How Real can a Reality TV star be? Most fans are eager to watch Kim nurture her pregnancy till the end and see her become a mom. But now she claims that she’s put so much of her life out there and it’s now time for her to be private. “My boyfriend has thought me a lot about privacy,” she told Dujour Magazine. “I realize that everyone doesn’t need to know everything.”
But then comes the tens-of-millions-of-dollars question: What becomes of “Keeping Up With the Kardashian” without Kim?
