Cha-ching…cha-ching…those cash registers are ringing are the new soundtrack for The Kardashians. Kim K and company have officially signed on for a lucrative, new multi-season deal with E!.

Back in 2012, Keeping Up With the Kardashians was renewed for three seasons in a deal that was worth $40 million. At the time that was the richest reality TV show deal ever.

The reality clan is now shooting season 10, and their new deal, which sources close to the production describe as “huge” and will take the show into season 11 onward, is worth more than their last one.

Sources have not confirmed if the Kardashian deal has been signed or it is still in negotiations but it’s a safe bet that their popular reality series will return.

Apparently, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is about keeping it well paid.

Rae Dawn Chong may not believe in the power of Oprah Winfrey, but Michael Lohan is hoping O’s magic touch will be just what his troubled daughter Lindsey Lohan needs.

Winfrey’s OWN Network paid Lindsey $2 million for an upcoming exclusive sit down interview and an 8-part docu reality series. Michael says he’s happy for his daughter and believes Oprah’s influence just might help his daughter stay clean.

“I think Oprah did her a great justice. I think it’s awesome that she gave her this opportunity,” Michael told TMZ. “It’s going to keep her straight, it’s going to get her back on her feet again. It’s awesome.”

Normally Michael and his ex-wife Dina disagree on all things Lindsey. But Dina  almost exactly echoed Michael sentiments concerning her high hopes for her daughter’s latest career move. She told E! News, “Oh, it’s fantastic. If anyone is going to help mentor you, it’s Oprah.”

The Lohan clan sure has a lot riding on Saint O. But then again, if anyone can make a miracle happen for Lindsey, Oprah can.

Apparently, singer turned reality show star Toni Braxton has hit a sour note with an advertising firm.

According to TMZ, a company called National Promotions & Advertising is claiming it entered into an agreement with producers of Braxton Family Values, which includes Toni, last year to promote season two of the series.

In exchange for posting BFV posters around the country Team Braxton was supposed to fork over $57, 322 to help spread the word.  NPA claims it completed their  part of the agreement back in November, but Braxton and co. never paid up.

A rep for Toni says the singer is not involved in marketing budgets for the TV series and that WEtv handles such decisions.
