Kim Kardashian's Baby Bump Photo Isn't Worth as Much as You'd Think

by Nicole Fabian-Weber on January 2, 2013 at 9:47 AM

kim kardashianKris Jenner isn't going to stop what she's doing and live in the joyous moment just because her "favorite" daughter, Kim Kardashian, is pregnant. No, no, no, friend. That's not how it works in Kasa Kardashian. After what I assume was a cursory champagne pop and double-cheek kiss session, Jenner got down to business, negotiating a magazine cover deal that will feature the debuting of the most popular Kardashian's baby bump.

Two noteworthy things about this: One, the supposed amount that was agreed upon is extremely surprising (lower than you'd think). And two, the magazine cover will likely be just Kim, because "Kanye always looks so miserable."

Sources told the New York Daily News that Kim will likely wind up getting $300,000 for the tabloid cover. Supposedly, Kris already started emailing weekly rag mags, trying to negotiate a deal, and that's the ballpark number that was reached. The source said: "(It) likely will sell at $300,000, and that's Kim solo because Kanye always looks so miserable." Truth.

To any normal person, $300,000 is a ridiculously large sum of money. It would take most of us six to seven years to make that. But to a Kardashian, that's a handbag. Perhaps it shows how desensitized I've become to all things Kardashian (and celebrity), but I would have thought it would have gone for more. (I'm sure the photo of her debuting her actual baby will earn her way more than that.)

And in regards to the Kanye looking miserable thing. Well, I hate to say it, but it's true. Kanye does always look like he just learned of someone's passing. I mean, could you imagine a photo of the two of them beaming, his hands lovingly placed on her belly? It's a laughable thought. A thought that almost makes me uncomfy.

Needless to say, like most things in life, this pregnancy is going to be all about Kim. Kanye will have to lay low, take a back seat, and perhaps settle upon storming a stage or wearing a skirt if he's feeling neglected. And then hopefully, eventually, the two of them can both settle upon loving their baby and not worrying about being famous.

In other news, 2013 is officially the Year of the Dreamer.

Are you surprised about Kim's baby bump debut fee?

    Anyone can see her cervix on the internet for free. Why on earth would someone pay that much to see her stomach?

    who cares not all magazines sold at a newsstand/supermarket are tabloids some of them are celebrity Glossies like people is. besides the average single issue of people now costs 6 bucks at the newstand before state sales taxes are added so she'd only have to sell 50,420 copies to make the 300,000 back which is 3.7 percent of the weekly average circulation of the magazine which would be worse sales thean the cover of Jessica Simpsons daughter Maxwell in June of last year which sold about 167,000 issues between newstands and mail subscribers. the Kardashians aren't celebs so who cares about Kim's Illegitament pregnancy

    She's still legally married to someone else. I'm not prudish by any means but this is a perfect example of lack of morals. Is it really that hard to get a divorce to dissolve a 72 day marriage or use birth control until you're officially divorced? No wonder we have a morality problem when the younger generation actually look up to someone like this.

    Why would anybody pay that much for a photo of her baby bump?  I guess I just don't get all the hype.
