NEW YORK — The Kardashian sisters are seeking to cut ties with a venture that sold prepaid debit cards under their name after coming under attack for the card’s high fees.

The card, which launched three weeks ago, was aimed at young adults, the same group that watches the sisters’ hit cable TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

An attorney for the sisters sent a letter Monday to parties affiliated with the card asking them to immediately stop using the names and images of the three sisters.

The notice came after Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal warned on Friday that he would investigate the program to see if it violated state laws to protect consumers. He called the card’s fees “predatory.”

The Kardashians – Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – launched the card on Nov. 10, with much fanfare. The “Kardashian Kard” includes a picture of the trio on one side, and the sisters said at the time of the launch they were “excited to create their very own financial product.”

But almost immediately the Kardashians came under attack by consumer advocates for attaching their names to a card with fees that far surpassed other prepaid debit cards on the market.

Just to buy the card and use it costs $59.95 for six months, or $99.95 for 12 months. That does not include any money on the card. The person buying the card must add money onto it.

The initial feels were just the start. After those six or 12 months are up, it costs $7.95 a month to keep using the card.

It’s Sirius: ‘Dr. Laura’ will air on weekdays

NEW YORK — Talk-show host Laura Schlessinger won’t stay away from radio very long – only a weekend.

Sirius XM Radio Inc. said Monday it has a multiyear deal with Schlessinger to bring her “Dr. Laura” advice program to satellite radio in January.

Schlessinger had said in August that she was quitting her syndicated radio program, a week after she apologized for using the N-word on the air 11 times while talking to a black woman, and activists demanded her ouster.

She ends her traditional radio program on Dec. 31. The following Monday, her show will begin live at 2 p.m. on Sirius XM. It will air for three hours a day on Monday through Friday.

 Rumors about film anger rape victims

SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina — Wartime rape victims in Bosnia said they will complain to the U.N. refugee agency about its goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie who has not yet clarified rumors surrounding her movie that have infuriated the women.

The victims were outraged when they heard Jolie’s directorial debut was about a victim in a rape camp falling in love with her rapist. Jolie’s producer denied the rumors.

Bakira Hasecic, the head of the association Women Victims of War, said she will send a letter to the UNHCR, according to an interview in the daily newspaper Dnevni Avaz on Monday.

Jolie had promised a meeting with the women in November and invited them to the shooting in Budapest, but Hasecic said Jolie should come to Bosnia and meet the women there.
