Some quotes from the momager herself.
When you think is Kris Jenner what word automatically comes to mind? For me it is “momager”.
Actually trademarking the term in 2017, Kris Jenner is the original momager — she is the manager to all six of her (insanely famous) children, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner.
A little history on the head of the Kardashian-Jenner clan: before she was married to Robert Kardashian (the attorney on the OJ Simpson trial), Kris, born Kristen Mary Houghton, was a flight attendant for American Airlines. After her divorce from Kardashian, who she had three children with, she became a manager for Olympian Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Jenner). She married Bruce Jenner in 1991, and they stayed married through the birth of their 2 children together until 2015, when they divorced.
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” started in 2007, and is produced by Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest wanted to start a reality show about a crazy family, because he became obsessed MTV show, “The Osbournes,” which was on from 2002 to 2005. He started having people search for the family that would be perfect for a reality show, and a cameraman was sent to the Kardashians — immediately he knew this was the family.
Now, the Kardashians and Jenners are the trend-setters of the century — so many people idolize and try to look similar to Kardashian women (I am guilty of this). Remember in 2015 when Kylie got big lips so a viral trend happened called the “Kylie lip challenge”? Or when all of the Kardashian-Jenners sponsored FitTea and waist trainers — so suddenly everyone started waist training too? The Kardashians are truly the most talked about modern family, and everyone knows who they are.
If we are being honest, Kris Jenner is the mastermind of her famous family. She taught her children a strong work ethic, and to this day Kris watches out for all of them.
