The Kardashian empire and fortune show no signs of decreasing anytime soon. The family net worth has just gotten a substantial boost because Kim, Khloe, Kris and the rest of the gang plan to sign on for three more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. But while their previous three-season, $40 million deal was record breaking for reality television, sources say their new deal will be even bigger than that.
Sources who spilled the financial details to TMZ couldn’t say if the deal has been signed or is still in negotiation, but it’s clear that the show will definitely be coming back. Keeping Up With the Kardashians is currently shooting Season 10, but the new deal will take the show well beyond a Season 11. Insiders claim that E! was essentially willing to give the Kardashians whatever they wanted because “it is a HUGE show.”
However, one person who definitely won’t be coming back for Season 11 is Bruce Jenner. The former Olympian is contractually obligated to film Season 10, but is trying to limit his time as much as possible and is only on camera when it’s absolutely necessary. He is reportedly opting out of appearing on the show in the future and will seek a quieter life away from the glitz of Hollywood. Producers are reportedly sad to see him go, but aren’t too concerned because he was never a major character on the show.
The former Olympian wants a more simple life that includes golfing, riding motorcycles and spending time with his children away from the cameras. Jenner is pleased that his relationship with his sons, Brody and Brandon, continues to build and wants to help strengthen it. He will also continue to reside in Malibu and stay as far away from the glitz of Los Angeles as possible.
The decision comes on the heels of Jenner making some drastic changes to his physical appearances. Last week, he was spotted with a bouffant hairdo, further fueling the rumors that he plans to become a woman. He was also spotted leaving a plastic surgery clinic after allegedly getting a laryngeal shave to reduce the size of his Adam’s Apple, which is a common procedure among people getting sex changes, and rumors flew that he also spoke with his doctor about getting his penis removed. Sources told Radar Online that Brandon and Brody also believe that Jenner wants to become a woman, which Kylie and Kendall Jenner reportedly find “confusing.”
