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!

House Star Lisa Edelstein Takes On Republican Legislation In 'Coat Hanger' Abortion Ad

Feb 16, 2011 12:11 PM

Talk about an unforgettable commercial.

In a new political ad produced by MoveOn.org, House star Lisa Edelstein challenges Republican legislation by advocating for women's reproductive rights.

Edelstein, decked out in a 1950's ensemble, begins by narrating:

    "Decades ago, women suffered through horrifying back alley abortions. Or, they used dangerous methods when they had no other recourse. So when the Republican Party launched an all out assault on women's health, pushing bills to limit access to vital services, why is the GOP trying to send women back ... to the back alley?"

The ad ends with Edelstein in modern clothes, while frantically reaching for a wire coat hanger in her closet. A bit eerie, but she definitely leaves an impression with this message.

The ad comes on the heels of a decision made by lawmakers in South Dakota Tuesday, who moved to expand the definition of "justifiable homicide" by including those who seek to harm a human fetus by any means.

Whether you're pro-life or pro-choice, this ad will make you take a closer look at your stance.

ESPN And Discovery To Launch 3D Networks

Jan 5, 2010 10:37 AM


ESPN and Discovery have announced plans to launch 3D networks in the coming year.

THR reports that ESPN will unveil theirs this summer, beginning with the first 2010 World Cup match (between South Africa and Mexico.)

Discovery is teaming with Sony and Imax for its own 3D network, to launch sometime next year.

Of course, to watch 3D TV, you'll need a new 3D-ready TV set, as well as 3D glasses!

I have to admit, I wasn't really that impressed with Avatar in 3D, so will viewers be rushing out to buy a brand new TV for just two channels?
