The Kardashian Family Sign A Record-Breaking $40 Million Reality TV Deal With E!

Apr 24, 2012 03:40 PM


The Kardashian family has just signed a $40 million deal for three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians with E!, according to TMZ.

This is the biggest deal in reality TV history, but get this -- it doesn't even include products associated with the show that the family can profit from.

Last year the family made a whopping $65 million (Kim herself is worth an estimated $30 million), and while they may be the highest paid family in reality television, we have to ask: Are they worth every penny?

X17 Poll

Do you think the Kardashians deserve a $40 million reality TV deal?

No! It's disgusting that they make millions for doing absolutely nothing!
Maybe if they promise to donate half of it to charity!
Yes. Let's face it -- the world can't get enough of the Kardashians!

George Lopez Snags Interview With Arnold's Baby Mama

May 24, 2011 09:54 AM

Oh no, he didn't!

Late night talk show host and comedian George Lopez had a full-on laugh-out-loud satirical "world exclusive interview" with Arnold Schwarzenegger's former housekeeper -- better known as his baby mama, Mildred Patty Baena -- on his show Monday night.

Lopez dressed up as a woman, with a blonde wig and full makeup, strangely resembles Baena! The interviewed was set up "via satellite" from her home in Bakersfield.

The host asks "Patty" how the news of their lovechild got out. The housekeeper claims people "started to talk" as word got out "there was a 10-year-old who could bench press 450 lbs. -- and was very gropey."

The comedian jokes, "Like father, like illegitimate son." Touche!

Only a week after receiving a standing ovation upon debuting his single "(It) Feels So Good," it came natural for American Idol judge, Steven Tyler, to go with the flow as he made his way through LAX. We're lovin' those long locks!

The 63-year-old rocker has taken a break from Aerosmith to create multiple individual projects: the release of his album (It) Feels So Good, his autobiography Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? and his stint as judge on Idol.

Even though his band had threatened to kick Tyler from Aerosmith if he joined Idol, Tyler held on real tight to his cajones and took the TV gig!

The frontman recently told Rolling Stone some jaw-dropping remarks in regards to Aerosmith. Read them after the jump!

ABC Cancels All My Children And One Life To Live

Apr 14, 2011 02:00 PM


ABC has decided to pull the plug on two of the network's longest-running soap operas ... One Life To Live and All My Children.

All My Children aired for 41 years and One Life To Live survived a 43-year run. Kelly Ripa, who met her husband Mark Consuelos on AMC, said the following:

    "All My Children means so much more to me than any place, because [Mark and I] met there, we had our children there, it was a big part of our lives. I think that to cancel a show that has been on television for so many years, what are you going to replace it with? I mean I just don’t know. I just feel like it’s such a training ground for so many actors."

ABC announced both soaps will be replaced with a food-related show called The Chew and a lifestyle show called The Revolution.

OLTL's final episode will air in January 2012. AMC will wrap it up in September 2011.
