UPDATE: Today's the day! "Kris" premieres in select cities around the country, and the reality TV star mom is pulling out all the stops to make sure the premiere is a hit. She even brought along a baby to make us hyperventilate for a good 10 minutes thinking it was Baby Yeezus herself. All gimmicks aside, though, will you watch the show? Sound off in the comments below.
Kardashian mom—or “momager” if you prefer—Kris Jenner will host her own talk show! Her daughters are bona fide reality TV stars, and now Kris is taking center stage on her very own program. But we have to ask: will you watch it?
Tabloid coverage has made Kris one of the more divisive members of the Kardashian family, and there are too many scandals to name. On top of the recent (and immediately refuted) allegations that she abused her children, Kris has admitted that she cheated on ex-husband Robert Kardashian, sworn at her younger daughter, flashed her boobs and reportedly tried to strong-arm pregnant daughter Kim and her boyfriend Kanye West into buying a home near her. Not popular choices.
But nothing has been more controversial than Kris’ handling of the Kardashian family brand. In the most recent example, word on the street was Kris was trying to milk Kim’s pregnancy, from announcement to baby bump photo to baby pics, for the maximum dollar amount.
On the plus side, Kris is a colorful personality! Her show will be a “pop culture driven talk show,” and if anyone has their finger on the pulse of pop culture it’s this reality TV maven. And a woman who isn’t afraid to dress like Wonder Woman ortalk about her orgasms on TV might be a hosting natural.
We’ll just have to tune in to find out! A six-week test run of her show will air on some FOX stations this summer, so don’t worry, you’ve got a few months to decide if you’ll join us.
