Kim Kardashian - Kim Kardashian Is Highest Paid Reality Tv Star

Kim Kardashian is world's highest paid reality TV star.

The 30-year-old socialite - who appears alongside her family in hit show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' as well as starring with sister Kourtney in 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York' - topped the list by US-based website The Daily Beast after earning $6 million in 2010.

Former 'Hills' star Lauren Conrad came second, taking home $5 million, while Kim's sisters Khloe and Kourtney also made the list after each earning $2.5 million.

Kim is said to earn up to $75,000 for a personal appearance and has made a fortune from endorsement deals, which include Skechers sneakers, Kotex tampons, as well as her own range of swimwear, jewellery and perfume.

The Daily Beast's list measured those "who've cashed in on fame versus talent" and they only counted reality TV stars with a show that aired or was in production in 2010.

Other stars to make the list include former Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson, mother-of-eight Kate Gosselin, former 'Real Housewives' star Bethenny Frankel and Audrina Patridge, who is working on her own programme, entitled 'The Audrina Show', after originally shooting to fame on 'The Hills'.
