Sooner than later, The Kardashian’s might have to start looking for real jobs in the mainstream American economy if the news that their rating has gone down, and their faces no longer attract huge sales on tabloids is anything to go by.
This is how New York Post reports it;
“You may not have to keep up with the Kardashians much longer.
Everything the reality family touches turns absolutely toxic — with party promoters, magazine editors and television execs all scrambling to blacklist them, insiders told The Post.
Ratings for the family’s reality show have plummeted, sales of magazines with Kim Kardashian’s mug go unsold, and her products are unmarketable, insiders say.
Promoters were doling out thousands of dollars so Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloe would hit their hot spots. And Kim was once paid $600,000 to spend New Year’s Eve at Tao Las Vegas.
Now it’s the total opposite.
“I’d pay her $600,000 personally not to go to Red Egg,” said Travis Bass, referring to the Chinatown hot spot he co-owns. “Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us. We’d have a meeting Monday and talk about how that happened.”
The wheels came off Kardashian’s caboose in October, when she filed for divorce from Nets forward Kris Humphries after 72 days of a sham marriage.
E!’s Kardashian TV franchise — “Keeping up with the Kardashians” — suffered a 14 percent dip in Nielsen ratings, from 3.5 million viewers per episode last season to 3 million this season.
Circulation at Us Weekly, In Touch, Life & Style and OK! dropped about 18 percent when a Kardashian was on the cover in December, publishers said.
Even shoe maker Skechers ditched Kim as the face of the company in 2011 — they’ve replaced her with a French bulldog.
“I’m bored with them,” said Manhattan publicist R. Couri Hay, who organized paid Kardashian visits to clubs in 2008 and 2010.
Now, he said, he wouldn’t dream of promoting “Kim Kardashian and her little clunky sisters.”
Meanwhile yesterday, it was revealed that father Robert Kardashian admitted Khloe was his biological daughter in divorce-court papers — dispelling rumors she was adopted.”
Any enterprise established on deceit can never last!
