TV Guide: Can you keep up with the Ks?

2012-08-17 15:25

Forget about the Joneses, everyone wants to keep up with the Kardashians. Here Momma K, Kris Jenner, talks to 7 about their seventh season and their ever-growing empire

What can we expect from Season 7?
The family relationships are changing and Kourtney’s pregnant. Kourtney loved giving birth to Mason and she can’t wait to
give birth to her daughter.

What’s been your favourite on-screen moment so far?
When Khloé got married. Her and Lamar are so in love. She picked the perfect guy and they’re so happy.

Do you have any regrets from the show?
I have no regrets at all. We’ve been so open as a family and that’s why we’ve had so much success. We’ve just been ourselves.

Do you think you sometimes reveal too much on the show, especially talking about sex?
Talking about sex makes some people uncomfortable. But my kids are so comfortable in their own skins. I don’t think it’s a problem, as long as it’s in good taste.

Did you ever think the show would become the phenomenal success it is now?
We never dreamed it would be as successful as it is, and we’re all still so excited about being part of a show as a family.

We’re a big family, with an unusual dynamic and people find us interesting. Before we started the show, all my friends said: ‘You guys should have a show’, and so we thought why not?

We have a show where we don’t have scripts and you never know what’s going to happen. It’s exciting and fun.

What’s the secret of your success?
For many years I was a housewife and mum, soccer coach and Brownie leader, you know, a full-time, hands-on mum.

I was married to Robert Kardashian, who was such a great businessman, and he had such great associates and I learnt by osmosis about business.

So when I met Bruce Jenner I had the most amazing experience being his manager.

How do you find managing Kendall and Kylie, and their careers?
It’s exactly the same as my other children. There must be a balance.

Education comes first. My husband is a stickler for this. Education is everything.

But I taught my children how to communicate so they will tell us if something is wrong in their education.

Kendall and Kylie have their freedom. They ride horses, they have lots of friends and everyone hangs out at our house.

What life lessons have you taught your children?
Robert and I tried to give the best we could to our children, the only way we knew how. We taught them that God comes first, family second and everything else third, and that it will all fall into place.

Does bad press have a negative impact on you and your family?
We all work so hard, we don’t have time to get caught up in the tabloids and silly press.

You have to have a tough skin. I think you have to wake up every day with a positive attitude and be happy.

Is religion important to you?
I have a strong faith in God.

What are your thoughts on surgery?
Surgery is such a personal experience. I don’t like to judge anyone.

The best thing I’ve ever done was have my surgery, as I felt so much more confident after.

What’s the most ridiculous media story you’ve ever read?
That Robert Kardashian wasn’t Khloé’s dad.

» The new hour-long Keeping Up with the Kardashians starts tonight at 9pm on E! Entertainment (DStv channel 124)
