Not only are the Kardashians’ TV ratings sinking, but their faces are failing to sell supermarket weeklies.
“It’s over. The fatigue factor has really set in,” one magazine publisher told me. “None of the Kardashians, either alone or together, is selling.”
Sources say Jann Wenner paid $110,000 for a heavily retouched photo of Kim Kardashian in a white bikini, which he splashed on the Dec. 23 cover of Us Weekly under the headline, “My Body Is Back.”
But the glossy, which usually sells about a half million a week, sold fewer than 400,000 copies, an insider with access to circulation reports told me.
Bauer’s In Touch dropped 70,000 copies from its average circulation with a recent Kardashian cover, and another Bauer title, Life & Style, dropped 50,000.
Star magazine, from American Media Inc., sold 50,000 copies less than its newsstand draw of 325,000 with its Dec. 2 issue blaring, “Kris & Bruce: Divorce Bombshell: Kim Helps Kris Hide $25 million.”
“I think it’s because Kanye West is so nasty and aggressive. People don’t like him,” the publisher said. “It’s rubbed off on Kim. It’s rubbed off on the whole family.”
Marc Berman of TV Media Insights had a different explanation for why ratings of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and its various spinoffs have sunk.
“It’s simple — overkill,” Berman said. “The Kardashians are everywhere. They never take a break.”
my life is completely over.
what ever will i do?
*runs in my closet to weep silently*
the life of an attention whore has a shelf life.
when you veer too far off from your initial point of your 15 minutes,
it will be nothing but downhill.
take note instagram and tumblr whores.
once kim popped out dial tone,
gave her other baby yeezus a platform to be super annoying,
that khloe/lamar fiasco,
and kris jenner tried to make her “geriatric swagg” happen…
i knew they were on that last 14:40.
so whose next?
lowkey: i will buy the future books on:
“HOW TO MAKE A BLACK MAN A COMPLETE IDIOT”
“WHERE OF WHERE DID THE TIME GO? HOW ATTENTION WHORES LAST”
“KRIS JENNER’S GUIDE TO MAKING ANYTHING FAMOUS (EVEN ANIMALS)”
“WHERE ROB WENT”
