E! has announced that it has signed a $40 million deal for three more seasons of the hit reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The massive contract makes the deal the largest in reality TV history, and that family members Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Khloe Kardashian, as well as parents Kris and Bruce Jenner, will earn equal pay.
Lesser stars Kendall, Kylie, and Rob will be paid equally but less than the others. Scott Disick and son Mason, as well as Khloe’s husband, Lamar Odom, will get separate fees.
The contract applies only to shows that currently exist right now, but the deal also secures first-look rights to all the family’s non-scripted ideas for new shows (oh boy).
No word on whether or not new boyfriend Kanye West will join Kim on her show next season.
