[Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian made a lot of dough together once upon a time this year]
‘The pay is crap, the stiletto time is uber high for the lives of America’s top reality TV stars–but the endorsements and back handers to espouse a message and set a trend of pop culture for another celebrity, aren’t bad’–the Kardashian sister’s story this year as California’s reigning version of Charlie’s Angels TV entertainment.
Well, this is no surprise, Kim Kardashian is listed as the highest earning reality TV star of America this year. No one blurs reality and surreality quite like California. It’s what we do. The best.
Having a family focus and creating employment, Kim’s strategy as a star to make ‘family the big thing’ she’s about; has garnered Kim’s two sisters as top-earning reality TV stars too in a new year-end list of rankings, The Daily Beast said Monday.
$6 million in reported earnings is what the Daily Beast rank Kim on. She’s a cover girl, a sports and military locker room pin up star. One of the key stars of E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians Ryan Seacrest (really Kim) produced show, with a line of merchandising products ranging from timepieces to tennis shoes.
The beast reports Kim’s fortune is in-the-main amassed from the overall takings of the Dash Boutiques, a trendy chain of designer retail stores with locations in Los Angeles, Miami, and now Manhattan. A nice value add from Kim in steering information this way into he sisters collective brand power. (eg: spread your fame asap, and hedge your bets).
The Kardashian sisters, who have some of the best tabloid story line angles each week, just released a new book, Kardashian Konfidential, that has already sold 13,000 copies in its first week of release. Endorsement deals with Sephora and Bebe beauty brands are also their thing. (more…)

10. DALE K GOES RED!
To see Dale K’s hair color transformation, contrast the above pic of Dale from two weeks ago, to her pic at #10. Ferosh!
Heidi Montag’s playboy pics are the third most sought after topic of interest on internet search engines in America today.
Who ever thought that Heidi Montag in a bikini could cause the specialized field of Search Engine Optimization to skyrocket like this today, with Heidi Montag’s name (brand and branding) on the world wide web? Not me.
I was reading Star Magazine today and in its pages, Star jokes about what the name of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt’s first child should be. The Magazine listed names like Dollar and Hustle as an appropriate name for the shameless couples’ firstborn.
That’s a bit harsh. But I did like Hustle for their baby’s name. It’s so LA and definitely so what Heidi and Spencer are about, using their reality TV show, The Hills, to actually sell themselves in any way, shape of form (like Heidi’s breast implants in a bikini on the cover, for example), to make their first $10 million.
The fact that Heidi is the #3 most searched for topic out of any hobby, interest, person, news item, government policy, health care reform issue, stem cell research development topic, or the future of graphene powered energy; or any major event in America today — just shows that her hustle is working. She’s blitzed America today with her Playboy campaign. Republicans should be proud of her. Heidi Montag for most famous GOP member today.
Oh, btw: for those of you outside of America, the GOP are the conservative lot. Can you see this in Heidi’s Playboy pics today? Yes, of course you can.. (not!) They are also the gay bashers and the uber-racists of America, but that whole hater ‘tude can tend to go hand in hand with Playboy covers and pics, like these.
It’s the flip side of over obsessive conservatives. Balance and grace is desperately needed.
Looking at the positive aspect though (If there is one!), I like the way Heidi “tastefully” only appears in her bikini. She’s not topless or completely naked. The mud smeared all over her makes reference to the time she got sick to the point of vomiting and she was crying her eyeballs out in shock and distress, stranded in the dirty jungles of Costa Rica when she was appearing in the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here reality TV series.
I still can’t believe that all internet users of America’s 330 million people base, are mainly looking for Heidi today. She needs to do ’a Lauren Conrad’ about now, while she has such a huge audience interested in her at this second and write a book next. Lauren’s book, LA Candy is a New York Time’s Best Seller.
Writing a book is so much smarter than doing a Playboy cover. But the truth is, sadly, Heidi is probably making more money than Lauren’s book sales of LA Candy, with Heidi’s Playboy cover appearance fee. More spreads like this will follow. As Lady Gaga sings “Dirty Rich” is the name of Young Hollywood in the Fame Game. It may not be right, but that’s what these girls know is what’s really going on. They’re cashing in, while they’re young.
It makes me annoyed, that smart girls like Lauren Conrad, who do the right thing, don’t always get rewarded. They should. Dirty girls get rewarded. This is America. It’s human nature, blown out of proportion to extremes.
You just know that Heidi and Spencer are going to be photographed sitting in Church next month, with Heidi buttoned up to her neck in some colonial styled outfit for a month of Sundays.
But for this month, the newlywed Pratts are happy to be looking dirty. It’s paying. Spencer Pratt is such a pimp. He is not a husband. If Heidi is smart she will put her Playboy check in a trust fund, for Dollar Pratt and Hustle Pratt’s therapy. (I say Dollar AND Hustle together because, you just know these two fame whores are going to have twins by IVF as their first birth experience as parents).
Twins will get them more exposure, and Heidi will probably have them by surrogate mother too, as she doesn’t want to ruin her bikini body, while she shoots more bikini covers.
If Heidi does put her Playboy check in a trust fund for her kids, she will ensure that Spencer can’t touch the money that Heidi, mainly, makes. You know it. That’s what’s really going on in this marriage as these pics clearly show.

While Mariah Carey, Lil Wayne and Diddy’s new album release dates have been pushed back, Clive Davis is moving Whitney Houston’s I Look To You, comeback album forward by a day. Nice work Whitney Houston! She’s on a comeback roll!

You’ve got to give it to Lauren Conrad. She’s one reality star, who knows how to switch it on up into new things.
Not only was her book, LA Candy, loosely based on her life, a #1 New York Times Best Seller, but Conrad is in talks to turn her book into a film. Nice.
“We’re hoping for a movie deal,” says Conrad to The New York Daily News. “I’m working on [adapting the book for the movies] right now, but I don’t want to commit to anything until I see all my options. We have had a lot of exciting news in that respect, though.”
It’s nice to see a young star, who doesn’t want fame’s spotlight, just for being famous. She’s creating entertainment product and is becoming (as a writer,) an architect of Hollywood.
Lauren Conrad is one smart sweetheart! Smart LA Candy, for sure! Would you see LA Candy at the movies, if Lauren’s hit book gets greenlit for the big screen?
… my hood, would a Milkshake be named after Lindsay Lohan and the starlet appear in person to whip it up!
Gotta love that Lohan, at 5,000 calories per shake, that’s her monthly intake of total calories in one cup!
Um, at least it wasn’t as many calories as the deep fried twinkie bars or deep fried cheesecake on a stick, offered at the Super Fair in Orange County, before last night’s outstanding Kelly Clarkson concert last night.
No wonder why that Lauren Conrad, ran from the O.C to the Hills of Hollywood so willingly. That fair food in the O.C is just all wrong! :)
