Kim Kardashian Paid $600K To Host Vegas Party On New Year’s Eve

December 28, 2011 08:00 AM by Lisa Princ

Kim Kardashian and the entire Kardashian clan don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon, despite the boycott efforts against them. In fact, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will be raking in a cool $600,000 just to host a New Year’s Eve party in Las Vegas! No, we are not kidding. More after the jump!

Say what? Yes, you read that correctly. Despite all the bad press after her divorce from Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian is supposedly being paid $600,000 to host the annual New Year’s Eve party at Tao in the Venetian in Las Vegas. According to sources, Kim was paid $500,000 for the same hosting gig last year, so why the extra $100k this year? Apparently, Tao is also paying the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to make a few more appearances for them.

Speaking of New Year’s Eve, Kim Kardashian recently took to Twitter to share her excitement as she posted: “New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite nights of the year. Time to celebrate everything you’ve achieved in the past year and look forward to everything to come in the New Year… This New Year’s Eve, I’ll be celebrating at Tao in Las Vegas. I can’t wait!” Will she be celebrating the fact that she achieved yet another failure of a marriage? Somehow we don’t think she will be drowning sorrow about her divorce on New Year’s Eve.

    And we care because…???

    This is one way she makes money. Big deal!!!

    Where is all of her “charity” work she claims she and her lovely mommy claim she does? Scooping out food on Thanksgiving does not cut it – not at this point in her “career”. She never misses a photo op and we all know the papps follow her around. So, what gives?

    Honestly, THIS is news???

    This bimbo is the biggest no talent woman on TV. And running close 2nd and 3rd are her bimbo sisters ! I like to give credit where its due, but clearly, I cannot give this woman credit for ANYTHING ! The mother Kris markets her girls to impressionable younger females, and its borderline almost a crime. Bottom line: Kim and her sisters cannot really act, or sing, or do a sport, or be politically inclined – so why the Hell are they “famous” ??? Something needs to change, if these are role models and “real celebrities”, then man, I should be Superman ……

It’s just to much money you could buy two nice big house’s with that money.

    I think that it is amazing how Kris made this family a fortune. Anybody would love to be in their shoes and for all of the people who have negative things to say… I really feel bad for them. Nobody should dwell on others success. That would be a miserable life.

  8. Sandy Says:
    December 28th, 2011 at 9:21 am

    Good for her! I love these girls and their family. They work hard and are generally nice people. What’s wrong with that. If Kris wasn’t the one so what, who cares. The right man will find Kim K when its time. Enjoy yourselves ladies.

    Kim really needs to relax and take it easy she is going to start look old soon. Don’t worry about being married, take your time and find the man of your dreams from a relationship that is longer than 6 months. Make sure you know all you can about him before marrying him. Life is to short you are not that old and save your money for the real marriage

  11. Carolyn Says:
    December 28th, 2011 at 10:06 am

    Leave Kim alone already. So she made a mistake. Are you perfect? All women screw up, especially in relationships. Get over it, move on. She is a brilliant business woman. How about giving her kudos for that?!?

It just makes us look like we dont have a life at all to focus on something like this! Get a life!!

    How much does she donate to charity? If you dig you will see the Kardashinas only worship the almighty dollar. They will go the way of the Dodo bird or Pet rock. Kim is a whore when it comes to money. N0 class, no brains, no talent.

    December 28th, 2011 at 11:46 am

    How gross is this. TAO has a max capacity of 2,500. At $250 per ticket, they are barely going to break even. This is considering that they pack a full house and does not consider their costs and staff counting towards capacity.

    Does anyone question how Fregie (with talent) only gets $100k, but Kim K with all the backlash is getting $600k? Does the media wonder if this is just another Kardashian lie? Is TAO really this stupid? Is the IRS paying attention? $600k sure does hire a lot of laborers in Chinese Sweatshops. What will be next?

    It would benefit her, by making her look as if she is luxurious, opulent, and most of all bulletproof to the backlash. It helps TAO with free headlines about their NY Eve party.

    Looks as if the Kardashians still exploit the media. If someone is getting away with 600k for one night worth of work (if you can call it that), while most Americans are struggling with lost equity in their houses, debt, and unemployment, they should have enough class not to turn it into a headline. Kim can make her money any way she wants (as she has proven with her past sex tape), but Americans dont need the bragging.

    Over 475k Americans have signed a petition to boycott Kim Kardashian. Its headlines like this that show us why.

    This is truly disgusting.

    Why would anyone what to be at a New Year party with someone so fake it isn’t even funny. Kim Kardashian is only in everything for fam and money and nothing else. She doesn’t love anyone but her pocket book. We need to get rid of the Kim Kardashians from the magazines, newspapers, fashion and everything else – what a phony person and the biggest BSer there is for all time.

  32. Cheryl Monteiro Says:
    December 28th, 2011 at 12:51 pm

    I think she is immature, but, I admit I’m a huge fan! I do not believe these are ‘wicked’ ‘horrible’ people, but have ridden a non stop sky rocket to fame in very short order! We’ve literally watched her and her sisters (and brother) grow up on tv. We have a lot of time and interest invested in them as people. As a former performer, and agent assistant from Beverly Hills, these are some of the most attractive people I’ve viewed on the boob tube in ages, if EVER! For me, it’s like adult Barbie play! Who
    wouldn’t want to be this beautiful and wear
    couture, be adored, whatever? I wish Kim and the entire family the very best and continued success. Let the man upstairs ‘judge’ everything else.

  36. Robin R. Says:
    December 28th, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    Kim doesn’t seem to be going through what most couples go through, when they separate and ultimately divorce. I see no remorse for anything, no backing up in order to work through anything. Of course this is a woman who didn’t even consider counseling when problems presented themselves. Counseling should have been the first thing. She knows it is very plain that she wasn’t in love with Kris Humphries. She sees it as her personal business. I was very disappointed in all of this wedding business. However, I was correct when I said that the network was not going to cancel anything “Kardashian”. I posted that comment when that petition was being circulated. The family is too much of a money maker, and in spite of the thousands that were upset and wanted to boycott, there were oh so many more that were enticed to watch the weekly antics of this family. Even bad press is still press. People love the glitz and glamour, as it represents a part of life that most of us will never experience. The trips,clothes, shoes, make- up,trendy restaurants and clubs, flashy cars and all of the perks that go along with this type of lifestyle, are just way too alluring for many to ignore. They don’t realize that it is their attention to all of this that gives the Kardashian’s their money. We ultimately are responsible for their lifestyle. Look at the whole picture. We make them famous because of the attention we give them, and yet we fault them for it? Maybe we all should think about what it is that really upsets us about this family?

    December 28th, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    I do not understand the fascination of people for someone who has not talent whatsoever, is selfish, annoying, with a shallow personality, and a shorty with a superficial face and body.

    Let’s get real people, find someone naturally attractive with a good personality and great talent to host your end of the year party.

    I think Kim is the type that doesn’t like to be lonely. People really don’t know what their married to until at least a year. I feel Kris H was an arrogant type, and controlling Kim deserves someone at least remotely human, from what i seen on the show, he was a drag. I’m poor and don’t hardly have a pot to you know what in, and my family says why do you watch the rich spoiled people, in all reality i find joy in my heart to at least see people that are blessed in such a way! Go Kardashians, I know that you all thank God for your blessings! It’s a lot of hard work to keep up i’m sure.

    The fact that Ms. Kardashian has $600,000.00, is disturbing. This woman has no talent and makes a large sum of money. I guess, that is a talent in itself.

    What’s the big deal Hollywood don’t take marriage serious. All the stars do is change spouses like you change underware. Leave the girl alone, personally, I am glad she woke up before it was too late. It’s never to late to stop a cermony especially if you feel you are are being mistreated in some way. Better safe than dead!! These people are not mentally prepared for marriage anyway, much too young!

    It’s sad the owner of the Venetian is dropping this money down the drain…ah what Vegas used to be but the true Reality is tell SEARS what’s it’s like to parter up with the Kardashians…that’s what it really gets you. This year, one fool or set of fools decided to pay her money, while the others she and her family associated themselves with are closing their doors, dropping them like a hot potato or suing them for a laundry list of reasons. That’s reality.

    I think it is great she is back to work and making money after deciding to protect herself and her child by leaving that bad tempered guy. I guess if you got it, you got it. It’s all about perceived value. PS it is rude to say that about her marriage which had nothing to do with her. It was all about his issues. She was doing everything right.

    Kim moves like a hurricane. She has no care for those in her path as she barrels her way towards the big money prize. She is obviously very much over Kris. Hopefully, he would be able to salvage his life quickly and move on too. I wonder what the Vegas crowd’s response to her would be like?

    Some people have a healthy perspective on celebrity and some people do not. People that are so distraught because Kim felt like she had to end her marriage and feel duped are too emotionally invested in the lives of celebrities. Kim Kardashian ending her marriage doesn’t affect me and it shouldn’t affect you either. If you look at shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe and Lamar, and Kourtney and Kim Take New York as entertainment as well as taking a glimpse at these stars’ lives and nothing more, then you have a healthy perspective. If you feel like you really know these people and they are “friends”, then you probably have an unhealthy attachment to them. Stars are human beings just like you and I and sometimes they do dumb things, just like you or I. To think that they aren’t going to mess up and that everything in their lives is perfect is to set yourself up for inevitable disappointment. They aren’t better than any of the rest of us–they just have a bigger platform and more money!!!

    This is disgusting!!! She is getting $600,000 for a mere appearance? Since it’s not like the no-talent hoe knows how to sing or dance. That obsene amount is more more than a family of 4 will make in a lifetime! Boycott the Kardasians and Occupy the Kardasians!!

    December 2nd, 2012 at 2:54 am

    I really, really, really hope she never has a baby after an abortion. More and more kids these days are filled with a blood-lust that will never be satisfied. She would be giving birth to nothing less
    than a horrific monster.
