And really, it couldn’t have gone to a more worthy recipient.
The Daily Beast has compiled a top 10 list and named Kim Kardashian the world’s highest paid reality TV star. The 30-year-old is estimated to have earned a cool $6 million this year for starring in the likes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Kim’s also coined it in by supposedly earning up to $75,000 for a personal appearance in addition to endorsement deals for the likes of Skechers sneakers and Kotex tampons — other brands are available! — as well as her own range of swimwear, jewelry and perfume.
Keeping it in the family, Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney came seventh and eight with annual earnings of $2.5 million but the hotly contested runner-up spot went to former Hills star, Lauren Conrad, with $5 million. NewsFeed favorites Kate Gosselin and Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino make welcome appearances with $3.5m and $3m respectively.
Everyone on the list should be warmly congratulated for the important work they do and know that they truly deserve every dollar that comes their way.
