It’s no secret that Kardashians and cameras go together like Ryan Seacrest and money-making television series. However, the K-dashs don’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to hosting their own shows.
Although we love Khloe and her personal brand of real talk, the Kardashian sister’s brief stint as an X Factor host wasn’t exactly the highlight of her career with her natural sparkle unable to carry a show on its own. Will the same hold true for mom Kris Jenner as she attempts to break into daytime?
Maybe. Kris has plenty of pizzazz and is obviously passionate about her new “baby” but it’s not clear if shiny chandeliers and random co-hosts will be enough to take Kris from test markets to all markets.
One thing Kris does have going for her are out-of-this-world networking skills. The self-described momager’s been walking the streets of Calabasas long enough to know a thing or two about show biz. Khloe, on the other hand, had the more difficult task of coming onto the complex and fast-paced world of the The X Factor with no previous hosting experience. She interviewed fresh-faced contestants, trying to work out clever segues in awkward situations as veteran TV host veteran Mario Lopez looked on.
As it turns out, we’ll actually be able to compare the two ladies’ hosting skills head-to-head this Friday when Khloe joins her mom in the eerily familiar black-and-white foyer that passes for the set of Kris. So who will be the best? A note to both ladies: don’t try and be Oprah.
