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.
