Kim Kardashian Leaving 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'?
For reality TV star Kim Kardashian, the price of being famous is high.  Now that she's become way too popular, sources say that E! might not be able to keep her in Keeping Up with the Kardashians anymore.  The network can hardly afford to make her stay, which leaves us wondering: are they going to force her out of the show?

Radar Online reports that changes are afoot behind the scenes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.  Kim Kardashian's status is being questioned, especially because she's managed to move on to bigger and better endeavors.  Sounds like trouble for the series' ratings.

An insider close to the reality TV show said, "Kim's advisors feel that it's time to explore bigger deals on bigger networks."  Wait, is she just leaving Keeping Up with the Kardashians for a different (but practically the same, we bet) show?

It doesn't look like it, since the 29-year-old Kim Kardashian obtains even more money by doing business.  So far she has her own fragrance, an iPhone app, and sponsors several beauty products.  There's also that Carl's Jr. ad that's supposedly worth more than a whole season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

"She's right to feel like she doesn't need to open up her personal life to make a living on TV," the source went on.  "It looks like Kim can make a lot more money than the TV show can pay her, especially through her endorsement deals and doing appearances on bigger network shows."

If Kim decides to pack her bags and leave the show for more money, that's up to her.  E! can either offer her a fatter paycheck or just focus on the remaining Keeping Up with the Kardashians cast members.

However, that's still the reality starlet's family we're talking about.  Assuming she really does care about them as we see on the show, then it won't be like her to just depart.  But if things do get worse, we'll still have Kourtney and Khloe in Miami to keep us company.
