2:04 PM PST -- Sources connected to  the deal tell TMZ ... Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion's share of the money ... and they are each getting equal pay.

We're told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade -- and will be paid equally as well.

Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar ... who hammered out a package deal to appear in both "Khloe and Lamar" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

We're told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows -- so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show ... they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money.

The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it's the richest deal ever in reality TV ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."  

The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.

Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock.

More money to ktrash is like putting money in the trash can.
who cares how much money they get they are still worthless pices of garbage. when e realises they dont get the ratings they used to they well be 4o mil int he hole.
I guess Lamar is retired from b ball and now is just big foots bitch. KIms says she was going to keep kayne off the show but of course kayne well want ot be on the show and whore kim well do anythign for the right price. Kim is still mariied so thats another 10 mil for kris humback.

What more can be said about these vile "people"? What scares me more is that people actually watch this show. I wish I had the names of the people that like the Kardashians because they must be real stupid and ignorant and I'd be able to swindle their gub'ment checks.

Wake up "E" before you totally lose your audience. This family is not a penny. Does Mama Pimp now run "E?"

Now's the time to boycott E as well as anything that family pimps.

I believe that is a mistake to give them that much money when no one really watches that show anymore...BAD MOVE.

Looking at the big picture they should go off the air after the third season based on the Courtney Cox / Friends cast equal billing scenario. As everyone remembers, when Friends first cam out Courtney had top billing, however, eventually, the rest of the cast balked and negotiation equal billing. As with the new deal drafted with E, all the Kardashians have equally billing now. This is death to a show, because eventually the show will become too expensive to produce. As the case with Friends, Seinfeld, etc.
Coupled with the fact that their show only averages 3 Million viewers each week, there’s no way they can withstand future pay hikes. They will simply fade into the sunset.
This is probably why Kim has been forcing us stage photo shoots with Kanye so she can pitch a Kanye / Kim show and open up a new revenue stream. Unfortunately for her, the public is to smart for her and we just don’t buy it.

I have never understood:
1) Why these people are "famous"
2) Why people watch their show
3) Why there are people out there that actually give a s**t about them

There is absolutely nothing real about them, and they are some of the shallowest people I have ever seen. Everything is staged, whether the cameras are rolling or not.

Despite all the protests and naysayers, people keep watching the show(s) and buying the magazines and brand products. If people truly want them to go away, they'll stop. Until then, unfortunately we're stuck with them.
