I’d love to start this post asking, “Can she sink any lower?” but we all know she can in the name of ratings. Kris Jenner has been called out by New York Post critic, Linda Stasi, for attempting to bribe her into writing better reviews for her new talk show. Kris Jenner apparently gifted the writer with a Tiffany pen and letter which asked her to use the pen to writer a better review. Obviously it was a joke, right? Kris isn’t that dumb to think something like that wouldn’t get out? I assume it’s supposed to be tongue in cheek. That didn’t stop Stasi from throwing Kris under the bus though. Stasi tweeted yesterday: “Does this bribe make me look fat? Kris Jenner just sent me a Tiffany pen with which to write her a better review next time! Shockingly wrong!” OK Stasi, simmer down. Find a sense of humor.
I wonder how many pens Kris has sent out because I’ve yet to find a good review for her new show. It’s been universally panned. But that hasn’t stopped people from watching. It’s beating out all its competitors but that doesn’t mean much right now. It’s still a novelty. Let’s see if it can keep up over time. The problem most critics seem to have with it is that it’s very Kardashian-centric. Well, no shit. Apparently she spends most of the time talking about her famous progeny. Well, no shit. But Kris didn’t need the big North West reveal to get people to tune in. And according to Us Weekly she has other tricks up her sleeve to keep people interested. The mag insists that Kim Kardashian’s post-baby body will make its debut on the show. That episode will be huge. Everyone will want to tune in to see that. Kim’s been a ghost the last month leading many to believe she had to be planning a big reveal. Her mother’s show makes the most sense. It gets Kim the exposure she craves and Kris the ratings she needs. Still… I don’t know how this train can keep moving. Viewers will get tired sooner or later, won’t they? Kris Jenner’s critics made a dent somewhere in the Kardashian armor, right?
