Kim Kardashian is basically famous for filming herself having sex so she’s not really seeking legitimacy with the ways in which she’s making money. Aside from being on television, she’s endorsing athletic shoes that don’t provide the health benefit advertised, she’s selling diet pills that don’t either, and she’s selling clothes and accessories with stolen designs. And her family are famous for being related to her (that is, siblings like Khloe Kardashian are being hired for their notoriety-by-association and sometimes it backfires).
At least Kim Kardashian’s a little more honest about the easy money she’s making when she’s charging five-to-six-figures per event to turn up to red carpets at New Years and to be given free food and drink. Which, unlike her wooden turns at acting, require no pretense.
And a source tells The Huffington Post that Kardashian will probably make at least six-figures, although their estimate seems awfully low even if it’s for one night’s work. She could honestly make double the estimated $300,000.
Want to ring in the new year with Kim Kardashian? If you’re willing to pay $125 for a ticket, or $3,000 for a table, you can do just that.
Kim is scheduled to spend New Year’s Eve at 1 OAK Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. In what promoters describe as an “evening in style,” Kim and thousands of guests will count down to 2013 in “uber-chic and sophisticated surroundings.”
In addition hanging out with Kim, attendees will also “shake it on the dance floor all night to the unparalleled sounds of Las Vegas’ crowd favorite DJ Que,” according to promoters.
“Celebrities get paid big money by hosting events in clubs in Vegas,” one celebrity booker who has paid several A-list stars to turn up at Vegas events told The Huffington Post. “Kim will earn at least $300,000 for a couples of hours. In return, all she will be asked to do is walk the red carpet and hang out in the VIP area with her friends, drinking and eating whatever she wants to order for free.” - via The Huffington Post.
