How much are the Kardashians being paid by Hulu? Ex-employee slams family for underpaying
'The Kardashians', the upcoming reality show on Hulu, will be starring the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The series will focus and throw light on sisters Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, along with their half-siblings, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and mom, Kris Jenner.
After a solid two decades on reality tv, the Kardashians know their real worth. For the Hulu reality show, the Kardashian household (with the negotiator, Kris Jenner) will be paid a massive nine-figure salary, which they will divide among themselves. The series, premiering on April 14, will also feature the partners of the popular Kardashian sisters, some of whom include Kanye West and Travis Barker.
How much are the Kardashians earning from the Hulu show?
We know that the said celebrities have their share of experience in reality TV shows. Insiders confirmed on a Variety cover story that the Kardashians will be earning nine figures. About her family, Khloe Kardashian says, "We are all equals".
As of now, Hulu has ordered two seasons of 'The Kardashians', with a total of 40 episodes. Kim thinks that she would consider taking a break from her reality tv life, after the upcoming venture.
Having said that, the famous family did earn a huge fortune from their previous hit show, 'KUWTK' (reportedly about $150 million via TMZ), so the latest project is another glorious feather on their cap.
Ex-Kardashian employee accuses the famous family of underpaying
LA-based Jessica DeFino, a former employee at the Kardashian household, claims she could barely survive with her pay. She claimed to have struggled majorly to pay for both food and gas during her time working for the Whalerock Industries, which developed the Kardashian-Jenner official apps.
I was an editor on the Kardashian apps in 2015 in LA, worked days nights & weekends, could only afford groceries from the 99 Cents Only Store, called out “sick” more than once bc I couldn’t put gas in my car to get to the office, & was reprimanded for freelancing on the side ❤️ https://t.co/mzvnTomjS3— Jessica DeFino (@jessicadefino_) March 9, 2022

The wildest thing about that job: I saw firsthand how the most famous women in the world Frankensteined an impossible standard of beauty, pushed the rest of us to “keep up” with them, weaponized that standard of beauty to sell products, and *still* never felt good enough.— Jessica DeFino (@jessicadefino_) March 10, 2022
'The Kardashians' begins streaming on Thursday, April 14, on Hulu.
