Kim Kardashian Quitting Reality TV Show, Causing “War” With Sisters?

Kim Kardashian has “quit” reality TV, triggering a “war” with her sisters and sending the family “into a tailspin” — all according to Life & Style.
The magazine alleges that the newlywed “wants out of the family business.”
“She feels like she has outgrown reality TV,” explains a so-called “insider” for the same outlet that recently ran a false story about Kardashian regretting her decision to marry Kanye West.
Now a huge battle supposedly looms, says the tabloid.
“If Kim walks, their fear of cancellation could easily become reality,” adds the mag. “And without the series or its spinoffs, there’s a devastating domino effect on their empire.”
As a “brand and money expert” tells the outlet, “If the show is canceled, the Kardashians could lose hundreds of millions of dollars, up to $500 million. Being off the air means they get less exposure. It’s not just the paychecks from the show — there’s endorsements, licensing, the agreement with Sears, their makeup line, the Dash stores, etc.”
Yes, we don’t need an “expert” to tell us that the Kardashians’ TV show helps their other business ventures.
But is there even a rift in the first place?
Reps for Kim and Kourtney and Khloe say there’s no truth whatsoever to the story about a fight over the future of the show — or their other endeavors.
Splashing phrases like “$500 million” and “sisters at war” across a cover certainly grabs attention, but it doesn’t make for solid journalism.
