Kris Jenner Slammed by Fox Exec: “She Was Pretty Uninteresting”
Yikes — we can safely say we won’t see another talk show helmed by Kris Jenner anytime soon.
Fox Television Stations exec Frank Cicha doesn’t exactly have the kindest things to say about the network’s six-week experiment known as Kris, helmed by the world’s greatest momager herself. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporterregarding this summer’s test pilots, the head honcho doesn’t mince words about Kris’s on-screen charisma... or lack thereof.
“She was pretty uninteresting,” he says, adding, “When the camera was on she looked not just like a deer in the headlights, but like a deer that already got hit.” Geez, tell us how you really feel, guy!
Kris ran for six weeks last summer, ending with an appearance by future son-in-law Kanye West, who shared the first ever pic of his daughter, North. Though that publicity stunt was a valiant effort to help lift flagging ratings, it didn’t inspire enough confidence in Fox to order a longer run.
Meanwhile, daughter Khloe Kardashian has received mixed but much more favorable reviews for her guest emcee stints on Chelsea Lately. We guess somebody in the family got the talk show hosting gene... it just wasn’t Kris.
What do you think of the Fox exec’s comments: brutally honest or just plain brutal?
