Comes the news that with all the publicity generated from the Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announcement of an upcoming childbirth, one of the myriad ways that the couple will be able to reap profits from having a child together comes in the form of a blog website. But not just some ordinary blog, mind you. One that would pay Kim Kardashian $250,000 to document her pregnancy, sort of a "Keeping Up with the Unborn Kardashian" type of thing.
According to Christian Post and RadarOnline.com, the idea is the brainchild of film producer David Dginguerian ("Crossroad"), who believes that such a documentation could produce revenues of at least $100,000 per month. The site would be called MyPregnancy.com.
Dginguerian has offered Kim K $250,000 just as a signing bonus, according to a pitch letter obtained by Radar Online and posted on Jan. 5. In the letter, he tells the reality star that he is an film producer of Armenian descent (establishing ethnic ties with Kim, who is also Armenian) and plugs his latest film, "Crossroad" as an award contender. He also admits to being friends with one of Kim K's photographers, Nick Saglimbeni.
In his pitch, he suggests that the proceeds (the estimated $100,000 per month) from the "members only" site to go a "Christian Charity" of Kim's choice. (Dginguerian's movie "Crossroad" is a movie about Christian values, forgiveness and redemption, according to Gary Goldstein of the L. A. Times.)
But would anyone really read Kim's blog on MyPregnancy.com?
It would be easy to simply write off such a venture as just another outlet for a narcissistic exhibitionist to continue doing what she does best, but the truth of the matter is that a pregnancy blog by Kim Kardashian would most likely be a popular Internet destination. Consider that she has over 17.1 million followers on Twitter and over 12 million on Facebook, it would appear that Dginguerian's idea just might become the money generator he thinks it could be.
But that's not all. Take into consideration that Kanye West is also a very popular and influential recording artist. Many of his fans that follow him on Twitter (over 9 million) and on Facebook (another 147,000) would undoubtedly follow the documentation of the pregnancy of the couple's first child.
And then there is that media savvy family, the Kardashian clan, that could and undoubtedly would keep the site in the public eye without need of much in the way of professional public relations and marketing people.
To top it all off, gossip websites, blogs, and newspapers would subscribe to the site as well just to keep up with the socialite/celebrity/reality television star and pass along her latest thoughts to millions of fans who appear to want to keep up with all things Kardashian.
As Dginguerian says in the letter, it's a "win-win for everyone." (Except for those, of course, who maintain that the 32-year-old reality star is already over-exposed and will document enough of her pregnancy in interviews and on her reality shows.)
But such a website could catch on as Dginguerian (and others who would run the MyPregnancy.com) reach out to other celebrity mothers to get them to document their pregnancies. And with the incentive that monies from the website would go to charities, it could very well become popular.
As yet, it is unkonwn if Kim Kardashian has replied to the Dginguerian letter, nor is it known what Kanye West thinks of the offer.
