You may not have to keep up with the Kardashians much longer.

Everything the reality family touches turns absolutely toxic — with party promoters, magazine editors and television execs all scrambling to blacklist them, insiders told The Post.

Ratings for the family’s reality show have plummeted, sales of magazines with Kim Kardashian’s mug go unsold, and her products are unmarketable, insiders say.

Promoters were doling out thousands of dollars so Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloe would hit their hot spots. And Kim was once paid $600,000 to spend New Year’s Eve at Tao Las Vegas.

Now it’s the total opposite.

“I’d pay her $600,000 personally not to go to Red Egg,” said Travis Bass, referring to the Chinatown hot spot he co-owns. “Kim Kardashian would be crushing to us. We’d have a meeting Monday and talk about how that happened.”

The wheels came off Kardashian’s caboose in October, when she filed for divorce from Nets forward Kris Humphries after 72 days of a sham marriage.

E!’s Kardashian TV franchise — “Keeping up with the Kardashians” — suffered a 14 percent dip in Nielsen ratings, from 3.5 million viewers per episode last season to 3 million this season.

Circulation at Us Weekly, In Touch, Life & Style and OK! dropped about 18 percent when a Kardashian was on the cover in December, publishers said.

Even shoe maker Skechers ditched Kim as the face of the company in 2011 — they’ve replaced her with a French bulldog.

“I’m bored with them,” said Manhattan publicist R. Couri Hay, who organized paid Kardashian visits to clubs in 2008 and 2010.

Now, he said, he wouldn’t dream of promoting “Kim Kardashian and her little clunky sisters.”

Meanwhile yesterday, it was revealed that father Robert Kardashian admitted Khloe was his biological daughter in divorce-court papers — dispelling rumors she was adopted.

You can only watch a train-wreck for so long before a new, fresh derailment comes along that becomes the next fifteen minutes of fame.

Wonder if this has anything to do with one of the daughters' father allegedly being Kris Jenner's hairdresser?

The Kardashians are famous for being famous. They will soon be yesterday's flavor just like Paris Hilton.

I personally think its kind of sad how we have this almost Roman handling of celebrities. We use them up and then crush them when the capricious whims of the crowd turn.

It's really kind of sad.

It is, but it's what (some) put themselves out there for. They sell their personal lives as so much fodder for the teaming masses to consume, so they can make a profit. Putting the juicy tidbits of their lives up for auction.

Other than an apparently hot skin flick, which dosen't really require much in the way of acting, what talents does this bunch have?

I don't follow people likes this, I have way better things to do, like get a root canal. Best we're done with them, no sorrow here.

I agree but at the same time if our society didn't create a market for it, they wouldn't be doing it. It's a vicious cycle.

PHP Code:
Promoters were doling out thousands of dollars so Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloe would hit their hot spots. And Kim was once paid $600,000 to spend New Year’s Eve at Tao Las Vegas
Once? Yeah, it was just a few weeks ago for NYE 2012, many months after the whole boycott the Kardashians thing started.
