Kim Kardashian Makes $17.9 Million Off Wedding


While many of you wondered when you will ever get the right to marry, Kim Kardashian made $17.9 million off her wedding:

The newlyweds sold the exclusive photo rights to US People magazine for $2.4 million, but the biggest payout came from the four-hour, two-part TV special that will air on the E! Network in October, according to the New York Post. "Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event " is expected to pull up to $15 million for the Kardashian family franchise and for producer Ryan Seacrest. The couple also get $300,000 for their exclusive engagement announcement in People and $100,000 for exclusive rights to the bridal shower with Britain’s OK! Magazine.

  2. Dislike the Kardashian family as much as you want, but damn they know how to make the dollars by not doing anything! Props to them.

  3. Not to mention all the TAX DEDUCTIONS they'll get for being able to LEGALLY MARRY AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL.

  4. Can't stand the Kardashians. They're not exactly gay-friendly either. Almost all of them are a waste of space.

    The only people who really follow them are insecure females and misguided gay guys.

  5. They might want to bump up the air date of the wedding show. Who knows if the marriage will last all the way to October?

  9. I can't believe somebody has wasted network bandwidth on this. I'd rather watch mold form on cheese.

  13. I wish I could make that kind of money for having no discernible talent. But then I'm not a whore so I guess I will stick with my low paying real job.

    DUH! It's BS. Typical PR and to think you guys still fall for this? I know Towleroad isn't the most PR savvy website but do you guys still believe what a publicist tells you? Really?

    Oh dear guys.

  17. Give it a few more years... she'll find her way to the Paris Hilton dumping grounds. The land of celebrities that don't have any talents to keep themselves relevant.

  18. Why is a gay website joining the Kim Kardashian bandwagon? I am sick of hearing about her. I don't care one whit about her and I don't see why you do either!

  19. Ahh, behold the sanctity and purity of heterosexual weddings.
