The Kardashian’s aren’t well known for keeping secrets—though they’re great at generating excessive speculation about potential secrets! But for the most part, they’re all huge blabbers, and are too-willing to share from the start! Who didn’t love seeing Rob Kardashian hold Lamar Odom’s hand during a colonoscopy? Or watching Kris Jenner chase her horrified family around, trying to show off her new boob implants, even though the incisions had yet to heal? Well, it turns out someone thought the Kardashians didn’t have enough of a platform to share their most precious moments, and so Kris has landed a talk show deal!
“This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true,” Kris said in a statement after the announcement. “I can’t wait for this new adventure to begin.” Most talk shows focus on celeb guests, but you can count on Kris’s show, to be, quite cleverly, called Kris, to rotate entirely around herself and her family! In fact, TV executives are counting on Kris to bring the family drama, otherwise ratings may not meet their expectations.
“The latest adventures, successes, and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines,” exec Stephen Brown said. “At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner—a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted—all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host.”
Senior vice president of the Fox network that will air the show predicts that it “could really complement what we’ve got going on with Wendy [Williams], Bethenny [Frankel], etc. Wouldn’t be summer without at least one [new talk show] test, would it?” Indeed, it fits the trend of reality stars turned syndicated talk show host! If they’re going to keep expanding the Kardashian brand, it’s probably time to just give them their own network! Channel 666: Featuring Kardashian Jenner drama 24/7!
While I don’t doubt that Kris can sensationalize anything she comes into contact with, I doubt this will be good for her family! On the surface, I’m sure her kids will be thrilled with her new show, but the tell-all style that Brown promises will do more long term harm than good! But could this new show be the platform for Kris to unveil the real identity of Khloe Kardashian’s real father? The two have refused paternity tests, but we know that something is up—they’re normally so willing to prove tabloids wrong, but keep mum on this! Is Kris’ talk show a real success, or another desperate grab at fame?
