Kim KardashianWith two successful E! reality shows and a third in the works, the Kardashians are seemingly everywhere -- but even moreso this week with the release of their new book, 'Kardashian Konfidential.'

The reality star family has been making the talk show publicity rounds to promote their memoir/self-help book, and it's paying off: According to The Daily Beast, Kim has been named the highest-paid reality star this year. The middle Kardashian sister has brought in $6 million this year for her TV shows, product endorsements, Dash boutiques, skincare line and other promotional appearances.

Also on the highest-paid list: 'The Hills' star Lauren Conrad, 'Jersey Shore' star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino and celeb mom Kate Gosselin.

Kim a star? what's her talent again cause I never ever seen it. Just cause she is a lawyers dauthter that had everything handed to her since birth? I would love to see the day that she has TO struggle/ really work like other Stars. She would cry like a baby as she does on her reality show. Her voice just annoys me. Now, Angelina Jolie is STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kardashian....Hmm, that name rings a bell. Oh yes, now I remember, Robert Kardashian was the one that walked away from O.J. Simpson's house with the murder weapons and bloodly clothes in a bag. Now that's a famous Kardashian, or maybe infamous is more like it! The other Kardashians are just famous for being famous.
