Somewhere in a dark basement, the folks behind the "Boycott the Kardashians" campaigns must be fuming. With the power of momager Kris Jenner behind them, the Kardashian-Jenner clan has signed the biggest deal in reality TV history. Look for their empire that includes fashion, books, perfumes, web commerce, and jewelry to expand beyond anyone's predictions.
At this very moment, the E! Network is hard at work on the new season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." The show will premiere in May with 18 episodes of fun, craziness, and drama. Reportedly, not everyone gets an equal piece of the new deal. Kris and Bruce Jenner share the biggest piece of the money pie with their oldest daughters, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Khloe Kardashian Odom. Don't weep for Kylie, Kendall, and Rob because they split the next largest piece. That leaves a small amount to be divided between baby Mason and the "Kardashian men," Lamar Odom and Scott Disick.
So what are fans hoping to see this season? Well, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for one thing. The head Dash doll and her new rapper boyfriend have been snapped everywhere lately. In many ways the two self promotional geniuses are a match made in reality TV heaven. The Kardashians will definitely aim to wipe the memory of Kris Humphries and the "Kim's Fairytale Wedding" from public consciousness.
This season of "Khloe and Lamar" is giving us a glimpse into the challenges of Lamar's basketball career and marriage. On "KUWTK" viewers will want to know how it all plays out. Will Lamar continue to have the blues upon being fired from yet another b-ball team? How will Khloe deal with her continuing issues around fertility?
The interesting thing is that fans get the program's outline from the tabloids. You can then fill in the details by watching the show. Mommy blogger Kourtney and her hubby Scott will continue to show the growing pains of their growing family. Kendall's modelling career will unfold, as well as the troubles of Kylie becoming an older teen. Bruce will continue to grit his teeth while his wacky wife defies him, and we'll all shake our heads, wag our fingers, and keep watching.
What are you hoping to see on the next season of the ubiquitous Kardashians? Can you predict any new spin-offs? Is this money well spent for Comcast? Sound off!
