Kardashian Sisters Sued For Pulling Out Of Endorsement Deal For Cheesy, Overpriced Debit 'Kard'
The Kardashian Kard.
L.A.'s favorite rich girls (besides, you know, Paris and Lindsay and Vanessa Bryant), the Kardashian sisters (Kim, Khloe and Kourtney), are being sued by a debit card company after they pulled out of an endorsement deal.
Damned if they do, damed if they don't.
This is the same debit card that promised exorbitant fees, including $99.95 for opening an account, a $9.95 activation fee, $7.95 per month in dues, and up to $6 for ATM withdrawals. The Attorney General of Connecticut wondered aloud if the fees were even legal.
And so, after an uproar over the fees, and only three weeks after the early November launch of the "Kardashian Kard," the trio pulled out of its endorsement deal.

About 250 of the cards were reportedly issued before the company pulled the plug. (Irony: These overpriced pieces of plastic are now probably eBay gold. Discuss).
The trio's company, Dash Dolls, along with step-dad Bruce Jenner and Kardashian mom Kris Kardashian Jenner were also named in the suit.
The company, California-based Revenue Resource Group LLC, claims millions were lost after the three backed that [bleep] up and out of the deal.
"It's our only choice," Nancy Torosian, chief operating officer, told the Fresno Bee. "We have been severely financially impacted."
Claude Butler, company CEO, and wife Nancy Torosian, said they met Kim at a Fresno nightclub ("The Edge" -- how edgy) in 2009 and came up with the idea for the "Kard" then.
Because all good business propositions start over a $500 bottle of cheap vodka. No wonder this thing turned out so well.
