“E! is now freaking because others are calling trying to get a better deal – like Guilana [Rancic],” an insider tells PEOPLE.
Jenner’s daughters – Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner – are all set to appear in the upcoming seasons, as well as in a slew of possible spinoffs, and even a YouTube channel, according to Page Six.
