They are pop-culture royalty, and the Kardashian family has now reportedly made reality television history thanks to their recent deal with E!.

According to a report put out by TMZ on Tuesday (April 24), the wild and outspoken family have signed on for three more seasons of their series, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," for a whopping $40 million...the most ever paid in a reality TV deal.

Sources connected with the massive deal also say that the monetary amount does not include any of the products or other endorsements that Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan can earn.

With season six of the wildly popular show averaging about three million viewers, we can definitely see why future seasons got the green light. The 18-episode, seventh season is set to hit the airwaves May 20.
