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.

I am seriously just baffled at the fact that the show is bringing in THAT much $$$???? I mean at least 99% of all Kartrashian comments on here are negative, Who The F*** is watching this crap?!?!?!?!? I am assuming is our "younger" generation... We Are Screwed!!!!!!!

My guess is that Kris Jenner sent this story to TMZ, so the likelihood that it's accurate is probably quite slim. Sure, they may have been picked up for 3 years, but the payday was probably something like $4 million (still way too much for this menagerie of walking petri dishes). I can't imagine that the network a) has that much cash on hand, and b) gets high enough ratings from this disposable TV show to justify an 8-figure payday.

Bad move on E!'s part. The Kardashians are on a downhill slide and it will soon start showing up in the ratings. Unless they plan to pump out the 3 seasons in the next year they are going to regret it.

So, if you call yourself a Christian and every other word out of your mouth is a curse word, you deliberately do a porn with someone you're not even engaged to, etc etc etc, you score. Unbelievable.

I hope nobody watches this time around and E loses a ton of money and the Kartrashians who banged a black guy into wealth can go back where they came from nothing..

Who Knew    

So about 2.2% of the US population is ignorant enough to support this trash families show. I can buy that 2% of the nation are wannabe followers and easy parted from their money. 40 mil over 3 years or about 13.33 mil a year. minus taxes at say 20% equals 10,666,666 a year divided by how many ways? Don't forget all the money they spend on publicity to TMZ, X17online and the like plus print magazines to get the contract. So that seems about right.

Getting the paparazzi to photograph you going to church.

All the while:
Children out of wedlock
Making a mockery out of marital vows
Glamorizing adultery, having affairs while still married.
Being hung up on the superficial things in life.
Glamorizing greed.
Swearing.
Sex swings.
Porn tape, letting a guy pee on you.
Mom brags of marital affairs.
Poses on twitter in bras for under-aged fans.
Promotes immoral behavior.
Sells their souls to the devil for attention and money.
Bullies those they exploit and use in the media.
Emasculates men on national TV for money.
Humiliates and exploits others on national TV for money.
Hits their husband with a closed fist on TV for stepping on toes.
Has tantrums on National TV for money when they don't get their way.


The list goes on and on.

One day they will have to account for their sins.
