Kardashian empire collapsing following Kim's quickie marriage

Everything the Kardashians touch turns absolutely toxic -- with party promoters, magazine editors and television execs all scrambling to blacklist them, according to insiders.

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 told the New York Post.

Kim Kardashian was once paid $600,000 to spend New Year's Eve at Tao Las Vegas. Now, it is the total opposite.

"I'd pay her $600,000 personally not to go to Red Egg," Travis Bass said, referring to the New York 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 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 three million this season.
Circulation at magazines 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 company Skechers ditched Kim Kardashian as the face of the company in 2011, replacing her with a French bulldog.

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