LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Billion With A Capital “K”!: Watch out Jessica Simpson, there’s a new group of stars possibly joining the celebrity billionaire empire club! According to Women’s Wear Daily and E! Online, the Kardashian clan is raking in the dough in a major way. “The Kardashians could easily be a billion-dollar business worldwide in the next two years,” Brian Dow, from APA Talent & Literary Agency, told Women’s Wear Daily. According to E!, some of the family’s financial successes include The Kardashian Kollection at Sears (expected to make $200 million-$300 million in its first year), their line of scents (another $50 million) – plus more scents on the way, a QVC clothing line, a possible nail polish line and a jewelry line for Kim. Let’s not forget their countless reality shows on E! – we have to ask, are the Kardashians worth a billion?
