Scoop: Khloe’s wedding may rake in the big bucks

Life is pretty sweet for the Kardashian sisters. With a wedding for Khloe, a baby on the way for Kourtney, and … well, whatever it is Kim does, the reality stars are everywhere lately. And they’re reportedly cashing in on their busy personal lives: The New York Post says they’ve raked in more than $1 million over just a few months by hawking their drama for public consumption.

The Kardashian sisters are big business,” a source told the paper. “Their mother, Kris [Jenner], is a smart businesswoman and manages their deals. She knows how to make the most of these big announcements.”

“She’s negotiating a magazine deal for Khloe’s wedding, around $250,000, another deal for Kourtney’s baby, and there will probably be yet another deal when Kim eventually gets back together with [ex-beau] Reggie [Bush],” explained the source. Plus, “E!” reportedly agreed to pay for Khloe’s nuptials to Lamar Odom of the L.A. Lakers — as long as they were taped for TV.

“Then there’s the product deals — they’ve already got the fashion line, now they’re branching out into perfume and beauty products,” added the insider.

Wow. Having a stage mom doesn’t sound so bad after all — especially when you don’t have to actually do any work.

Kelly: Scared

Meanwhile, Kelly Rutherford’s divorce just keeps getting uglier. The “Gossip Girl” star has filed a restraining order against her estranged husband and the father of her two children, alleging in court papers that he “has begun to follow me, my mother, and my nanny and he shows up unexpectedly to threaten and scare us.”

The actress split with German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch while pregnant with their daughter, Helena, now 3 months old; they also have a 2-year-old son, Hermès.

Although she acknowledges that “right now I’m going through a very challenging time,” Kelly tells People magazine that she’s coping with a little support from her mom: “She is hysterical. She sent me that Christina Aguilera song ‘Stronger’ and that’s when I’m laughing and crying at the same time, like, ‘Mom, I love you!’” That’s what moms are for.

Jude: Daddy?

Jude Law refuses to see his newborn daughter, Sophia, until he’s sure she is really his child, according to the U.K.’s Sun. After a fling with model Samantha Burke, the actor agreed to pay for her prenatal care and the baby’s birth last week — but he’s “still very cautious about Sam and Sophia,” says a source. “Until he is 100 percent certain she is his daughter he is only communicating through lawyers.”

The Brit pretty boy, now gearing up to star in “Hamlet” on Broadway, is said to be seeking a DNA test to establish paternity. And his attorneys have allegedly asked Samantha not to sell baby pix to the tabloids until results are in.

“If he is the father he will meet his obligations to the child,” says the source. “He’s hoping for an early chance to establish that he is genuinely her dad.”
