Joy To The World, No One Wants To Buy Magazines With Kardashians On The Cover
Welcome to the feel good story of the holidays. Via Page Six:
Not only are the Kardashians’ TV ratings sinking, but their faces are failing to sell supermarket weeklies.
“It’s over. The fatigue factor has really set in,” one magazine publisher told me. “None of the Kardashians, either alone or together, is selling.”
Sources say Jann Wenner paid $110,000 for a heavily retouched photo of Kim Kardashian in a white bikini, which he splashed on the Dec. 23 cover of Us Weekly under the headline, “My Body Is Back.”
But the glossy, which usually sells about a half million a week, sold fewer than 400,000 copies, an insider with access to circulation reports told me.
Bauer’s In Touch dropped 70,000 copies from its average circulation with a recent Kardashian cover, and another Bauer title, Life & Style, dropped 50,000.
In related news, the Kardashians have announced they’re a bearded family of hunters now who only shoot gay ducks. Which also explains why a white horse now rides across the earth spreading disease and pestilence in its wake. *swats locusts off keyboard*
