Have the Kardashians gone kerplunk?
Despite Kim snagging a People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Celebreality on Wednesday, it looks like most magazine editors, TV execs, and promoters are starting to feel the family’s 15 is over—in fact, insiders speaking to the New York Post claim the K-Team has been blacklisted.
If this is true, the fallout is starting to show: Stats reveal that “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” has gone south by 14 percent, glossies that put Kim on the cover are losing 18 percent of their profits, and the fam’s zillions of consumer products simply aren’t marketable (e.g. Like, hello, Skechers just bumped Kim off their ads for a mushy-faced French bulldog!)
When once Kim had gotten paid a whopping $600,000 to hang out at Tao Las Vegas for New Year’s Eve, promoters everywhere are now crossing their fingers she won’t ever show up at their joints.
Travis Bass, co-owner of the upscale NYC lounge Red Egg, defiantly claimed he’d pay the bootilicious star “$600,000 personally” not to ever step foot in his Chinatown hot spot. “Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us,” he said.
“I’m bored with them,” said Manhattan publicist R. Couri Hay, who managed some of the Kardashian paid club visits in the past, adding he wouldn’t tolerate promoting “Kim Kardashian and her little clunky sisters” anymore. (By the way, sisters is correct: Khloé is a Kardashian. According to Momager Kris and the late Robert Kardashian‘s divorce-court papers that were just released, Robert claimed he was biological father to the tall, fair-complected anomaly—despite recent rumors to the contrary.)
With all this K-Hate going around, which catapulted immediately after Kim’s divorce announcement, maybe the mega reality star should’ve stayed with Kris Humphries, even at least to keep the gravy train running a little while longer.
