Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick welcomed little Penelope Scotland into the world Sunday morning. The news spread like a
wild fire slow burn, as everyone is still totally engrossed in the Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise split. As if that wasn’t a big enough blow to the media hungry Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, now the family learns they might not even be able to cash in on Penelope’s baby photos! Horrors! Keep reading to find out why.
Celebrities just can’t get what they used to for pictures of their offspring. PEOPLE paid Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie $6 million and well over $10 million, respectively, for pictures of their twins. Granted that price was for two babies, but that’s still at least $3 million a baby.
More recently, Jessica Simpson reportedly collected $800,000 from PEOPLE for pictures of her daughter Maxwell. Sad for everyone involved, except Jessica, the magazine cover failed to sell. According to magazine editors, the chances of any magazine paying big bucks for pictures of baby Penelope are slim.
“It’s been a long time since paying to secure exclusive images of a celebrity baby guaranteed huge sales,” an editor tells the Huffington Post. “Kourtney’s second child isn’t such a big deal. If it were Kim’s baby, it might be different, but with the exception of hardcore fans no one is waiting to see what Penelope looks like.”
Ouch. Kris Jenner is probably having a cow right now. So sad, the wrong daughter got pregnant, and now they cannot sell the pictures.
“She will be lucky if she gets $20,000 to $30,000 for the pictures,” says the source. “The Kardashian craze has been over for some time now. Now a picture of Tom and Katie is worth more.”
Apparently, to get a little love these days, Kourtney and Scott should have named their little girl TomKat.
Will Kourtney sell the photos for pocket change or will she withhold them? If the family filmed Penelope’s birth for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, they just might make us tune in to the E! show to see her precious little face for the first time.
It’s a bad day in Hollywood when you can’t even sell pictures of your baby, isn’t it? Actually, every day is a bad day in the real world, because us common folk don’t have celebrity babies. $30,000 is nothing to turn your nose up at!!
Tell us, RTVM. Are you still in the Kardashian fan camp or are you over them? Who’s anxious to see baby Penelope?
