Kardashian brand blacklisted by promoters
Washington: Kim Kardashian, along with the Kardashian family, may be losing their popularity and are reportedly not the sought after celebrities they once were.
From nosediving ratings for ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ to tanking sales of magazines featuring the Kardashian clan, it appears the obsession over the family is ending fast.
According to the New York Post, anything featuring the raven-haired reality show clan is turning “absolutely toxic.”
Kim Kardashain was once paid upwards of 600,000 dollars just to appear at a Tao’s New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas, and she and sister Khloe were often sought-after - and incredibly well-compensated - party guests the world over.
But now party promoters aren’t so keen anymore with some saying that Kim would be ‘crushing’ to them.
“I’d pay her 600,000 dollars personally not to go to Red Egg… Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us,” ABC News quoted Travis Bass, co-owner of the New York City nightspot, as telling the New York Post.
R Couri Hay, a publicist who’s worked with the Kardashians in years past, said that he’s ‘bored with them’ and can’t imagine promoting ‘Kim Kardashian and her clunky sisters again’.
The paper reports that circulation for the gossip magazines that were once Kardashian strongholds - Us Weekly, In Touch, Life and Style and OK! - dropped nearly 18 percent in December when any member of the family graced their covers.
It also points out that Kim was dropped by sneaker-maker Sketchers in 2011, and ‘replaced her with a French bulldog’.
