According to new reports, Kris Jenner revealed she regrets divorcing her first husband Robert Kardashian.
The late O.J. Simpson defense lawyer was the father to Kris Jenner’s children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian Jr.
Kris Jenner’s revelation comes just a few days after the announcement that she and second husband Bruce Jenner were living separately after 22 years of marriage and were much “happier” having separate homes.
“The one regret, if I had to do it over, would be divorcing Robert Kardashian,” Kris Jenner, 57, said in the latest issue of New You magazine.

“But then there wouldn’t have been Kendall and Kylie, so that’s the way I look at it.”
The so-called momager married Roberts Kardashian in 1978 and later finalized her divorce from him in 1991, the same year she married Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner with whom she has two daughters, Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16.
Robert Kardashian died in September 2003 after a battle with esophageal cancer.
“Everything happens for a reason, and we learn from our mistakes,” Kris Jenner said.
“I thought I was so smart when I was young; I was fearless.”
Kris Jenner added that love is “non-negotiable” in her life.
“Love. Love is everything,” she said.
“We go in and out of love in our lifetime. I don’t like change… even though I love change. I love really hard, and when someone is in my life they are in my life forever,” Kris Jenner said.

Kris Jenner has reportedly set her sights on rapper Drake to replace Lamar Odom and bring her daughter Khloe Kardashian happiness
Kris Jenner doesn’t exactly approve of her daughters’ taste in men, so she’s reportedly taking some proactive measures to make sure Khloe Kardashian, 29, picks the right man when and if she splits from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom, 33.
“She’s shopping for Khloe’s next husband,” a source tells In Touch Weekly magazine, adding that momager “has her eye” on Drake, 26.
This shocking story was actually broken on VH1’s The Gossip Table, and they claimed that Kris Jenner thinks Drake is the perfect guy for Khloe Kardashian.
“She thinks he’d be perfect for Khloe,” their source continues.
“Kris is sick of her daughters ending up with jerks.”
Brody and Brandon Jenner are reportedly happy with Bruce and Kris Jenner’s separation after 22 years of marriage.
Bruce Jenner’s sons from a previous marriage allegedly blame Kris Jenner for taking their father away from them when they were growing up, according to TMZ sources.
Brody and Brandon Jenner are reportedly happy with Bruce and Kris Jenner’s separation after 22 years of marriage
The website reported that when Bruce and Kris Jenner said “I do” in 1991, Brody and Brandon felt abandoned by their biological dad when they were left to be raised by their mom Linda Thompson and her new husband, David Foster.
TMZ‘s sources claim the boys felt Kris Jenner convinced their dad to leave them for his new family, and they have been carrying around bitterness toward Kris ever since.
Brandon and Brody Jenner reportedly know that Bruce did not pay child support for 10 years and then gave $1,500 a month afterward, and they think it’s because Kris was calling the shots.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality show will continue to film post the couple’s new separate living arrangements.
According to a new report, if Kris and Bruce Jenner decide to move forward with a divorce, it could become one of the most expensive splits in Hollywood history.
Kris and Bruce Jenner are now potentially facing a battle over their $125 million fortune.
Bruce Jenner, 64, is legally entitled to a major chunk of the Kardashian empire’s earnings, and RadarOnline.com is reporting that the Jenners’ potential divorce could prove to be one of the priciest in Hollywood history.

“This is going to be a very bitter pill for Kris to swallow because when they divorce is finalized, she’ll have to split half the family fortune with Bruce,” a source with knowledge of the situation revealed to Radar.
When Kris and Bruce Jenner first married in 1991, Bruce was lavishing Kris with the fancy lifestyle she wanted. Since then – more specifically, since the launch of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as well as the family’s subsequent products and endorsements – Kris Jenner has become the wealthier half of the couple.
Ironically, Kris Jenner forced daughters Kimand Khloe Kardashianto get prenups before marrying Kris Humphriesand Lamar Odom, respectively.
Though Kris Jenner says she and Bruce have no plans to divorce right now, not having a prenup will make the process infinitely more difficult, should they decide to move forward.
Though Bruce and Kris Jenner have been separated for months, news of their separation wasn’t officially confirmed until October 9, when they told E! News: “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.”
Kris and Bruce Jenner have confirmed they separated a year ago, after 22 years of marriage.
In an interview with Us Weekly magazine hitting newsstands Friday, Kris Jenner says their scenes together on the show have been genuine and there’s no animosity between them. She says they’re committed to their family.
Bruce Jenner says they’ll always love and respect each other.
News of the split was first reported by E! News.
Kris and Bruce Jenner have confirmed they separated a year ago, after 22 years of marriage
They say no divorce papers have been filed and that Bruce Jenner will continue to appear on the family’s reality show.
The admission explains why on recent episodes, Bruce Jenner moved out to his own beach house, saying he needed more space.
The couple’s teenage daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, were also filmed joining him for the summer, because their house with mom Kris was too crowded after half-sister Kim Kardashian moved in with Kanye West and their new daughter.
Since Bruce Jenner moved out, he’s still featured on the series often. Kris Jenner has taped scenes at his new home, as have the other Kardashian kids.
Kris Jenner, 57, and Bruce Jenner, 63, married in April 1991, less than a year after getting fixed up on a blind date.
At the time, Bruce Jenner had already been married twice before and had four kids.
Kris Jenner was newly divorced from Robert Kardashian, a prominent attorney who represented O.J. Simpson in the murder trial of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman. She already had four kids, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian.
Bruce Jenner has served as a father figure to Kris Jenner’s children, especially since the death of Robert Kardashian in 2003 of cancer.
Kris Jenner posted a brief video of Kardashian family meeting with a number of topics on Keek.
The footage featured children Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, Rob and stepson Brody Jenner sitting around on her couch.
Unfortunately for the Kris Jenner, her offspring didn’t seem quite as concerned to talk as she was, and ignored her pleas to pay attention in the footage posted on Friday night entitled, “Family meeting”.
“This is what a family meeting looks like at my house, ladies and gentlemen,” said Kris Jenner, as she panned the camera around the room, revealing Kim, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall, Kourtney, Rob and stepson, Brody Jenner.
“And there we go, family meeting. Nobody is paying attention to me, nothing ever changes. Thank you, I have no control,” said the momager in her voice-over.
To prove her point, someone in the entourage shouted: “Turn it off!”

It is unclear what the famous family were discussing or if indeed troubled Lamar Odom even came up in conversation.
They seemed more keen to chat between themselves, as new-mum Kim Kardashian laughed with step-brother Brody Jenner.
Youngest daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner talked with Rob Kardashian, and Kourtney seemed more interested in touching up their lipstick than listening to her mother’s lecture which was seemingly being filmed for the family reality show.
After devastated by cheating allegations and drug abuse regarding Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian, 29, is reportedly still reluctant to pull the trigger and admit that their relationship is over.
But Kris Jenner allegedly has other ideas, and recently took Khloe Kardashian to see a divorce lawyer.
“At Kris’ insistence, Khloe did meet with a divorce lawyer… it was something she was forced into doing by her mom,” a source toldRadarOnline.com.
“Kris was very heavy-handed and said Khloe had a responsibility to her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, and the Kardashian brand to distance herself from Lamar,” the website reported.
Later on Friday night, Kris Jenner put her family troubles behind her and attended the William Morris Endeavor pre-Emmy party in Los Angeles.
“WME party with the Fabulous @MarkBurnettTV #brainstorming,” Kris Jenner tweeted.
Posing with Survivor and Amazing Race creator Mark Burnett, Kris Jenner sparked rumors that she may soon be venturing into reality TV.
Kris Jenner posted a photo of herself in a blue bikini after her model daughter Kendall shared an Instagram post of herself in a stunning two piece from a photoshoot on Sunday.
“Last day of summer. Gonna miss you,” Kris Jenner wrote alongside the snapshot, which featured herself in a swimming pool wearing a bright blue bikini, chunky gold necklace and full make-up.
Kris Jenner’s post came a few hours after Kendall shared yet another stunning snapshot of herself in a purple and white bikini top by a pool from a recent modeling shoot for Colombian clothing boutique Agua Bendita.

Kendall Jenner, who turns 18 in November, is the face of the brand’s 2014 swimwear line and Agua Bendita have also released a short behind-the-scenes video showing her on location.
On Friday, Kendall Jenner posted another shot of herself posing for the fashion line, sporting a floral bandana and pink halterneck bikini top with mismatching bottoms.
In the video, Kendall Jenner could be seen pulling poses like a pro on a sunny beach and by the pool of a modern mansion.
Signed by the prestigious Wilhelmina modeling agency when she was just 14, Kendall Jenner has already racked up an impressive number of modeling jobs, including assignments for Forever 21 and Teen Vogue.
Kris Jenner’s marriage to Bruce Jenner is said to have hit a new low, according to a report by In Touch.
“They’ve had problems for a long time and have been separated for months,” a source told the publication.
The report claims that Kris Jenner is no longer wearing her wedding ring, and that they “just have a business relationship at this point. Their marriage is over”.
Kris Jenner’s marriage to Bruce Jenner is said to have hit a new low
However, today Kris Jenner took to her Twitter account to promote a scene with her and husband Bruce in a new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
“Bruce and I make a confession on tonight’s [show]” she tweeted, in reference to the revelation that the pair once made a s** tape.
A source close to Bruce Jenner added to the publication that he is “sick of the Kardashian machine and Kris’ antics. He knows she’s making him look foolish”.
Last year Kris Jenner denied reports that her marriage with the Olympic athlete was over.
Kris Jenner said: “You just have to take it in stride. Life is so good right now. We can laugh about it. We’re strong. We’ve been such a tight-knit family for so long. To keep addressing [the rumors] every single time just gets old.”
Bruce and Kris Jenner – who have teen daughters Kendall and Kylie together and a $155 million fortune – renewed their wedding vows in 2011, which was aired during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
New reports claimed that Kris Jenner’s new FOX chat show Kris had been cancelled after its initial six-week trial run.
But the programme’s Twitter page has now responded to claims that Kris Jenner was canned and insist that no decision has been made just yet surrounding the future of her show.
A short message to fans was posted on Twitter, stating that current rumors surrounding Kris Jenner were “false”.
“Rumors flying are false but glad everyone is still buzzing about our 6 week summer run!!!!” a Tweet from the Kris Jenner Show’s official Twitter page read.
A source close to Kris Jenner also told Us Weeklythat FOX actually “likes the show”.
“It’s way too early for that decision to have been made,” the insider said.
“And on top of that, FOX likes the show.”
It had been previously reported that the momager’s daytime series suffered such poor ratings that the network was adamant that “there is no chance” she will be picked up for a second season.
New reports claimed that Kris Jenner’s new FOX chat show Kris had been cancelled after its initial six-week trial run
This after the talk show received a ratings boost from an appearance by Kanye West – where he revealed the first pictures of his daughter North.
A source allegedly told RadarOnline on Wednesday: “There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX.
“The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it.”
Adding: “Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim, but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be.”
It appeared that the 57-year-old reality star was hoping to ride the wave of her family’s fame to prop up her chat show’s ratings.
But apparently five days a week of the Kardashians may have been a bit of an overload.
The cancellation rumor comes as Queen Latifah and Bethenny Frankel try their hand this fall at hosting their own talk shows in the highly competitive field of daytime.
Just recently Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake saw both of their shows axed after just one season.
A source further explained to Radar: “It’s a very crowded market and Kris didn’t do anything to set herself apart from the field.
“Believe it or not, most of America doesn’t want to hear about the Kardashian’s for an hour everyday.”
It was also claimed that FOX would be replacing Kris Jenner with panel-format talk show title The Real, after it scored high in the key female demographics following its pilot run on July 15.
FOX is expected to make an official announcement surrounding the future of Kris Jenner in a few weeks, but it was also reported on Wednesday that they were delaying any bad news about the show out of respect to the troubles the Kardashian family is currently facing.
Khloe Kardashian is said to be in the midst of a marital crisis as her husband Lamar Odom is alleged to be in the grip of a serious addiction to drugs.
Lamar Odom had been holed up in a hotel after Khloe Kardashian reportedly “threw him out of the marital home”, following a failed intervention last week.
Despite no confirmation surrounding the future of the show, an insider at the network explained that a cancellation “will be announced in a low key fashion, probably on a Friday afternoon so it won’t generate a ton of negative press for Kris”.
The first photo of North West, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby daughter, was finally revealed on Friday during an interview with the rapper on Kris Jenner’s chat show.
And it appears the tiny girl possesses both her mother and father’s looks.
With her almond-shaped eyes, full head of hair and full pout, little North West looks very similar to Kim Kardashian when she was a baby.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby girl also has predominant cheeks, similar to her father.
In his highly-publicized sit down with Kris Jenner, Kanye West said: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
However, Kris Jenner told the rapper that she thought North West was the perfect combination of both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

“I think she is an amazing combination of the two of you. She is so adorable. She has Kim’s eyes, I think she has your cheeks and both of your lips. Some days she has your lips and some days she has Kim’s lips,” Kris Jenner gushed.
“They dissect her,” the chat host and North West’s grandmother explained to the audience.
“Kim would go <<Look at her ears mom, look at her ears!>>. It is so cute how obsessed you guys are.”
Whether or not she looks more like her mother or her father, there is no doubt that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s little cherub shares the same strong genes as the rest of the Kardashian clan.
Dark hair and almond-shaped eyes is a feature that is predominant in many members of the famous family.
Sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian all have flowing brunette tresses, brown eyes and long eye lashes.
Kourtney Kardashian’s three-year-old son Mason whom she shares with partner Scott Disick, also possesses strong Kardashian genes, however her one-year-old daughter Penelope looks a little more like her father with her fairer hair and facial features.
Meanwhile, a flashback to baby pictures of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West show the now famous identities looking just as cute as their daughter North.
Kanye West has finally revealed the first picture of his and Kim Kardashian’s baby daughter North West on matriarch Kris Jenner’s show.
During an interview with the excited grandmother, proud new father Kanye West, 36, shared baby North’s photo with the audience and millions of viewers across America.
A snap of baby North flashed up on the screen after Kanye West and Kris Jenner sat down to discuss the new addition to the family.
“How cute is that gorgeous baby!! Who do you think she looks like?” Kris Jenner gushed over the snap, to which Kanye West responded with a laugh: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
Kris Jenner told the rapper that she thought her granddaughter was an “amazing combination” of both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“I think she is an amazing combination of the two of you. She is so adorable. She has Kim’s eyes, I think she has your cheeks and both of your lips. Some days she has your lips and some days she has Kim’s lips,” Kris Jenner said.
“They dissect her,” she explained to the audience.
“Kim would go, <<Look at her ears mom, look at her ears!>> It is so cute how obsessed you guys are.”
Before revealing the snap to the world, Kanye West categorically denied that he and Kim Kardashian had tried to shop first images of their daughter to the media.
“It’s all this talk about baby pictures and <<can you get paid for the baby picture or do you want to put it on a magazine>>,” he explained.
“And for me and your daughter we have not attempted to get paid for anything, we have not attempted to put it on a magazine.”
Kanye West said he decided to share the cute image of his baby on Kris Jenner’s show because he wanted to please little North’s grandmother.
“You just stop all of the noise and I thought it would be really cool on her grandmother’s season finale to bring a picture of North,” he said.

It was then when Kanye West shared the snap, much to the delight of a cheering audience.
During the interview, Kris Jenner asked Kanye West whether he hopes baby North will follow in her father’s footsteps and become a “rapper”.
Kanye West told her that he and Kim Kardashian would be encouraging their daughter to make her own decisions.
“I am going to give her the opportunity to develop her different skill sets and then decide what she is the best at,” he explained.
“…and we will give her the support and let her follow what she loves the most.”
Kanye West had previously hinted that he didn’t want his child to be in the spotlight, declaring: “This isn’t America’s baby.”
It seems the rapper had a change of heart and decided to share the image of baby North in a bid to boost Kris Jenner’s TV ratings.
Kim Kardashian, 32, didn’t make an appearance on the show but Kanye West shared several romantic pictures from their private album.
Before he showed off the new addition to the family, Kanye opened up about his precious daughter.
He told Kris Jenner that that she will give him a lot of stability in his life.
“To me it is such a blessing. I feel it is going to give me the stability that I need to really create and do god’s work,” Kanye West explained.
“She [North] is someone to be accountable for and responsible for.”
It had been widely reported that Kanye West had struggled with the loss of his mother Donda when she died of complications from cosmetic surgery in 2007.
He also revealed to Kris Jenner the depths of despair he went through, telling her that he “felt like he had nothing to live for”.
But he said his saving grace came in the form of Kim Kardashian and the couple’s new baby girl.
Kanye West explained that before Kim Kardashian came along he was constantly “putting his life at risk”.
“After I lost my mother, there were times… well I put myself at risk,” he said.
“I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for.”
Kanye West explained that everything changed when Kim Kardashian came into his life.
Not long after the pair confirmed they were dating, they also found out they were expecting a child.
Little North West arrived into the world on June 15 and Kanye West said that his new family has transformed him.
“Now I have two really special people to live for. A whole family to live for. A whole world to live for,” Kanye West said during the emotional interview.
According to new reports, baby North West is about to make her big debut on her grandmother show.
E! Online reported that Kanye West is set to stop by the Kris Jenner’sdaytime talk show on Friday and he’s making one unforgettable appearance.
According to audience members who attended the taping earlier this week, Kanye West proudly shows off a picture of his baby daughter with Kim Kardashian for the world to see.
One eyewitness tells E! News: “North is very beautiful. She has big cheeks, a lighter complexion than Kanye, but closer to Kanye’s color than Kim’s. She has straight black hair and almond eyes just like Kim. She has a round face and is really cute.”
“North was lying in a bed on her stomach [in the pic], she was wearing a dark onesie,” the insider added and explained that neither parent was in the snapshot of the little one.

And when asked why he decided to reveal the first photograph of his daughter on the show, the eyewitness said: “[Kanye West] said he had decided he wanted to show the picture of North because they didn’t want to make money on the photo and he is fed up of paps following him around.”
Kanye West also said that the wants to raise Nori to “be a normal kid,” and photographers add extra pressure for the new father.
This will mark the first time that the world has seen baby North West, as well as mark her debut on the small screen.
While Kanye West only showed off the snapshot momentarily, reports claim that Nori’s mug will be shown on the screen during the airing of the show for much longer.
Kanye West also gushed about “being in love with [Kim Kardashian] from the moment he met her,” according to the eyewitness.
“He said he always wanted to be with her and that they were the perfect match.”
It was announced Monday that Kanye West would be making a guest appearance on Kris show.
In the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris Jenner and Bruce’s mother Esther finally put their differences to one side but not without a bit of drama first.
Bruce Jenner decided to fly his 87-year-old mother to Los Angeles after her third husband died.
“It’s kind of lonely around here,” the pensioner confessed on the phone after 95-year-old Frank passed away.
Bruce Jenner, who admitted his relationship with his mother has had its “ups and downs”, hatched a plan to bring her from rural Idaho to see her grandchildren, and mark her birthday.
But the plan didn’t initially inspire his wife.
“Your mum doesn’t really like me,” Kris Jenner told her husband.
“You’ve had no relationship with her for the last 15 or 18 years,” Bruce Jenner shot back.
“I’ve seen her four times in my life. She yelled at me,” said Kris Jenner, who said she was saddened at the way Esther treated her.
“Last time she came to my home I made her feel like a princess. Why would I go and visit someone who can’t stand me?”
“Just have her see you as you are,” said Bruce Jenner, who wanted the pair to mend their relationship.
“It’s important to me. It would be a big treat for her.”
Bruce Jenner later complained to step-daughter Khloe Kardashian, saying Kris could hold a grudge for 20 years.
“My home is open to her,” said Kris Jenner, who insisted she was extremely busy.
“I’ll do my best to be around. In 23 years [of marriage] I think you’ve mentioned her name maybe a dozen times.”
“I don’t think she’s really crazy about me,” Kris Jenner later confided to pal Rhonda over drinks, telling her it was “f*cked up” that Esther hadn’t wished to see her grandchildren grow up.
Kris Jenner and Bruce’s mother Esther finally put their differences to one side but not without a bit of drama first
“Why am I crying?” asked Kris Jenner.
“This is a great thing,” Rhonda advised her.
Bruce Jenner later asked his mother to try and make amends with Kris.
“I have never felt that I could reach out to Kris,” Esther admitted.
But Kris Jenner made the first move saying: “I’m hopeful we can find a way to be family.”
“It’s kind of awkward,” said Kris Jenner, who was reluctant to greet her guest, who again complained that she hadn’t ever got approval from Esther.
“I hope that she can find a way not to judge me anymore,” Kris Jenner said.
During a special dinner, the family began to warm to the outspoken pensioner as she told Kendall Jenner she was too skinny – like her – and needed to put on weight.
And after a whisky cocktail Esther begins to talk about how she won’t wed again – and how any prospective husbands probably won’t be able to “get it up”.
“I’m so happy you’re here,” Kris Jenner told Esther – before saying she had to leave early to look after Kim.
“If I’m that sassy at 87, I’m going to be really happy,” she added.
However, Bruce Jenner still wanted the women to iron out their differences – and brought her to the house the following day.
“I really wanted a little time with you,” Esther said.
“We haven’t been too close in any way.
“I’m so sorry for that. I wish I could have been closer.”
“It was very complicated, a lot of personalities in the mix,” Kris Jenner said.
“I felt like I should stay away, and I have. But it’s not right. You’re Bruce’s wife. And the longest marriage he’s had,” Esther added.
“You’ve been good for him.”
“Wow, I’ve waited 23 years for this,” Kris Jenner said, before the pair hugged and kissed.
“Better late than never.”
“I’ll go home singing,” Esther said.
Meanwhile in Sunday night’s episode, Kim Kardashian fears she may be losing her clothes sense as she meets with Khloe and Kourtney about their fashion line.
Kim Kardashian was mocked by sister Khloe, who accused her of Tumblr-stalking her in a bid to regain her “cool”, as Kim wondered how she could get the-then fifteen-year-old to post more images of her online.
Kris Jenner fired back at Barack Obama after he criticized Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their opulent lifestyles.
Kris Jenner, 57, during her Kris show on Friday said she disagreed with President Obama that Kim and Kanye have been influencing the younger generation to be obsessed with wealth and money.
Barack Obama, 52, in a recent Kindle Singles interview bemoaned the “change in culture” that has warped the American Dream and referenced the E! network’s popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians show.
“There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” Barack Obama said of his time growing up.
“Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success,” said the president, who has twice referred to Kanye West in the past as a jackass.
Kris Jenner countered that she thought it was admirable that people, including a high school graduate such as herself, aspired to obtain great jobs.
“But, I wasn’t aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big,” Kris Jenner told the sympathetic studio audience.
Kris Jenner fired back at Barack Obama after he criticized Kim Kardashian and Kanye West for their opulent lifestyles
Kris Jenner chided the Columbia University and Harvard Law School graduate for pointing out that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West live in a 10,000-square-foot house.
“I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and he probably wouldn’t mind going over there when asking them to have a party for campaigning for dollars to run for president,” Kris Jenner said.
Kris Jenner also thought it was strange that Barack Obama was singling out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“I find it so odd that he’s picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn’t go on vacation. Ever,” Kris Jenner said.
“And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she’s got,” she added.
Kris Jenner also drew a comparison between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 10,000-square-foot mansion, noting that Barack Obama, “if she’s not mistaken”, lives in the 55,000-square-foot White House.
She also defended the Keeping Up With The Kardashians empire for employing hundreds of workers on the reality show.
It’s not the first time that Barack Obama has hard harsh words for Kanye West.
After the singer upstaged Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Barack Obama famously called him a jackass in an interview.
In the May issue of The Atlantic, Barack Obama said he prefers rapper Jay-Z over Kanye.
The president acknowledged liking Kanye West and the singer’s Chicago roots, but stood by his earlier characterization.

Kim Kardashian made a surprising return to the spotlight on Friday for the first time in more than seven weeks.
Kim Kardashian, 32, appeared in a brief video recording on her mother Kris Jenner’s daytime chat show.
In the pre-taped segment, Kim Kardashian surprised her mother with a short message, saying: “Hey mom, I just wanted to say congratulations on your new show. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there in person, but I’m just loving life a little bit too much at home right now.”
“But I watch you every single day and you are so amazing. You really are born to do this. I just want to say I love you and have an amazing show.”
Kim Kardashian looked happy and healthy in the clip dressed in a white top.
Following the video message, Kris Jenner broke down in tears as she marveled about the surprise with her guest host Diddy.
“You did make me cry… Thank you Kimmy,” Kris Jenner said as she wiped her eyes with a towel.
“That made me cry… Thank you Kimmy, thank you Sean,” she continued.
In fact Kris Jenner was so touched she couldn’t continue saying her thanks at the end of the programme, forcing Diddy to take over.
Kim Kardashian returns to spotlight after seven weeks in hiding with a video message on Kris Jenner’s show
“I just wanted to say thank you Ciara,” Kris Jenner said of her musical guest, before cracking up again.
“I can say this right now…”
Diddy had helped Kim Kardashian surprise the mother and matriarch by pretending to show Kris Jenner a clip that would feature on the new cable TV channel Revolt, which he is launching in October this year with Comcast.
“Check this out for Revolt. I bought something special that I am going to debut on the network, I am going to debut it here first on the Kris show,” Diddy said before showing the clip of Kim Kardashian.
It wasn’t quite the big reveal many fans had been hoping for and there was no sign of her daughter North West.
Earlier in the day, Kim Kardashian had tweeted her fans, telling them that she was going to surprise her mother.
“Getting ready to surprise my mom on @krisjennershow today!!!! You ready NYC? Tune in!” she wrote.
Kim Kardashian, who welcomed her first child with Kanye West on June 15, was last seen in public in an olive green dress on June 12.
On June 29, Khloe Kardashian posted a head shot of Kim sleeping on the couch at home.
Kim Kardashian’s absence from the spotlight has been rather unusual for the reality star, who has relentlessly pursued media attention from the moment her tape was “leaked” in 2007.
There have been suggestions Kim Kardashian has been laying low while she gets back into shape. Her boyfriend Kanye West, who doesn’t share her affection for publicity, has also encouraged her to be more private.
Kim Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban recently said she has almost regained her pre-pregnancy body.
Jonathan Cheban said: “Knowing Kim, I’m sure she looks 80 per cent at this point, she’s pretty much perfect.”
Kim Kardashian’s video will no doubt be a welcomed boost for Kris Jenner, who has struggled to win over critics with her daytime show.
Brody Jenner and his strained relationship with stepmother Kris Jenner may have reached a new low point as he wants his father Bruce Jenner to divorce the momager of the Kardashian clan, according to new reports.
The tenuous relationship between Brody Jenner, 29, and Kris Jenner, 57, was apparent during a recent episode of Keeping Up With Kardashians in which the whole family went on a Greek vacation.
Now insiders claim relations between Brody Jenner and his stepmother have soured to the extent he want his father to divorce her, RadarOnlinereports.
In Sunday’s episode, the Kardashian matriarch initially upset her stepson by failing to invite him on the Mykonos trip – saying he never responded to invitations – but later booked him a flight at Bruce Jenner’s request.

A source told RadarOnline that Brody Jenner has grown used to being snubbed.
“Brody has had a lifetime of this and he holds Kris responsible for Bruce not being a bigger part of his life when he was a child,” a source toldin an article published on Tuesday.
Brody Jenner “wishes his dad would just divorce Kris. Bruce and Kris are leading separate lives and don’t even share a bedroom together anymore”, the insider said.
“He has been spending a lot of time at his Malibu rental without Kris. Brody wants to be closer to his dad, but it’s very hard with Kris in the picture, because she always has to make everything about her,” the source added.
Elsewhere during Sunday’s episode, Kris Jenner told Brody during an awkward dinner at their ocean-view villa: “I’ve been trying to reach out to you and you don’t even respond.”
“I’ve got to give you my right info then,” Brody Jenner replied, claiming she must have the wrong number.
“I wouldn’t blatantly ignore you.”
Brody Jenner also expressed concerns over his father’s living arrangements as brother Brandon told him they no longer slept in the same room.
Pondering the sleeping arrangements at their Greek villa, Brandon Jenner said: “I wonder if Dad and Kris are going to share a room. They don’t share a room at home anymore.”
Brandon Jenner and his wife Leah explained that Bruce got a separate place to have his own space because he only had limited space at the family mansion.
“That sounds like a nightmare. Poor guy,” Brody Jenner replied.
Brody and Brandon are Bruce Jenner’s two sons from his former relationship with Linda Thompson.
Kris Jenner insists that the father of her new granddaughter North, Kanye West, “does not have a short temper”.
Kris Jenner, 57, had viewers scratching their heads when she made the admission whilst appearing on The Talk on Friday.
The mother-of-six was shown a video clip from last week when her daughter Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend lost his cool after a photographer kindly complimented his music.
When asked what she thought about Kanye West’s behavior, Kris Jenner said: “Knowing Kanye and I do know him very, very well and I am very close to him…he doesn’t have a short temper like everybody thinks.”
While the cameraman in question was merely complimenting Kanye West on his collaboration with Jay-Z on their hit album Watch The Throne, Kris Jenner said she thinks that the singer was most likely pushed to the edge.
“I think what happens with anybody who gets upset over something with paparazzi-related issues is that they are obviously provoked to an extent that we see nothing about,” the momager said.
“So we don’t know, I don’t know. I am just only seeing this for the first time. So I don’t know what happened before that so I don’t want to comment or judge on something when I wasn’t there.”
“I think none of us know the fifteen minutes that happened before that and how crazy they could have gotten.”
Kris Jenner insists Kanye West does not have a short temper as she attempts to explain Kanye his outburst at photographer who complimented his music
In TMZ‘s clip, Kanye West is seen “lashing out” at one of their cameramen after the snapper simply tried to tell him how much he admires his canon of work.
Kanye West had just arrived at Los Angeles International Airport when the incident occurred.
“Don’t talk, don’t talk to me,” the rapper yelled at the photographer.
He then spiraled off into an angry stream of consciousness rant: “I don’t want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anybody I know and tell everybody never talk to anyone that anyone knows.”
But it was when the videographer asked if there’ll be another collaboration between Kanye West and best buddy Jay-Z – after telling the star he loved him – Kanye flipped.
He was seen charging back the cameraman and appearing to reach for his equipment.
As well as claiming that Kanye West is not so notoriously short tempered as everybody thinks, Kris Jenner also summed up the aggressive reaction to “sleep deprivation”.
After viewing the footage, fame-hungry Kris Jenner gushed about how much she loved the rapper.
“First of all, I love that man, I do. He is a great guy,” she gushed.
“I think he was just a little sleep deprived… because of the baby, probably, I don’t know.”
And when one of the panellist joked that Kris Jenner was not getting as much attention from the paparazzi since the outburst, Kris attempted a little joke that somewhat fell flat.
“Is that what this about? I tried to buy a couple of them coffee this morning and they wouldn’t even take that,” she said with a laugh.
This is the second time Kris has defended her daughters’ partners in one week as both Kanye West and Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom become increasingly fed up with constantly being under the spotlight by association with the media hungry clan.
Although Kim Kardashian and Kanye West decided against debuting daughter North on the first episode of Kris Jenner’s TV show on Monday, this didn’t stop the matriarch from using the baby for ratings.
Knowing that speculation was rife that baby North West would make her first public appearance on Monday’s Fox premiere, Kris Jenner tweeted a picture of her cradling a dark-haired baby just minutes before the show started.
“You never know who will stop by our show today #watch Kris,” she wrote.
And it wasn’t until the very end of her first hour that Kris Jenner appeared with the precious tot only to hand the infant over to its mother… her stylist Monica.
The ruse finally uncovered, Kris Jenner said she wouldn’t “kidnap” Kim’s baby and insisted her daughter would be revealing the month-old in due time.
But the baby North effect had been fully exploited for promotional purposes, without her even leaving her home.
This wasn’t the only family heartstring that Kris Jenner pulled at during the show: “I promised I wouldn’t cry,” she spluttered as her daughter Khloe Kardashian shouted support from audience just seconds into the premiere.
“Thank you Khloe, you get a raise in your allowance now,” Kris Jenner – who was dressed in a favorite black and white combination – yelled back.
But then it was back to Kim as Kris Jenner dished on her dramatic labor.
Kris Jenner also shot down rumors that Kim Kardashian is in hiding under her orders so they can get raise the price of North’s first picture and laughed: “She’s free to go wherever she wants, Kim isn’t locked in the closet,” and said her daughter wouldn’t be marrying boyfriend Kanye West… in Egypt at least.

She helmed her titular hour on Fox 5 in the US with some degree of aplomb, and a very familiar narrative plot.
A black and white checked floor and spiral staircase mirroring Kris Jenner’s foyer makes her new studio instantly familiar, and of course, she was soon dishing on her famous family.
She kicked off the show by revealing the drama and secrets behind daughter Kim Kardashian’s dash to hospital on June 14 to deliver her baby daughter North five weeks early.
“How did you get Kim from home to hospital without anyone seeing?” co-host Cameron Mathison asked.
“There’s a little back story to that,” she said.
“I was doing Good Day LA, they had sent a limo for me to do it so I was offline as it’s live TV, I hate opening my Blackberry after that and then I’ve got an email from Kim marked <<urgent>>.
“For Father’s Day she had been planning this big thing for Kanye,” Kris Jenner explained.
“He’s obsessed with Apple so she wanted to get memorabilia but she had got nowhere, so she called Steve Wozniak and he said he’d bring her a mouse, drive it all the way down from San Francisco and meet Kanye for brunch.
“I thought the email was about that but when I opened it, it read: <<I have to have the baby today, get here today, fast>>.
“So I say to the limo driver, who I don’t know at all <<Sir can we make a pitstop?>> There’s 300 paps outside Kim’s house, the guy takes a detour and the paps start clicking away… the poor guy doesn’t know what’s going on.
“But we get Kim in the limo and I start trying to put the elaborate plan we had set in place for five weeks away with decoy cars and security, thinking how am I going to do this?
“I call my friend for decoy car, and the plan is we get to the hotel and switch cars.
“We go to the hotel, Kim’s under the blankets tapping away on her phone and I’m like, <<Who are you emailing?>>. <<I’m emailing Steve Wozniak>>, she said.
“<<Could we stop with the Woz!>> I told her, let’s go to the hospital!”
“We get to the hotel, and we’re so smooth but when Kim pops up, I see Steve Wozniak and his wife Janet standing in the foyer!”
“Kim then heads over like nothing’s wrong to chat to Steve and Janet, she’s acting like she’s at a cocktail party and I’m panicking.”
“Finally we get in the getaway car, and Kim lies down then yells <<Mom, hit the floor>> we’re in a Mini Coupe and there was no room, but I did it.”
“Then at the hospital, we hit the secret carpark, we head in through the secret elevator and through the kitchen and then we have a baby.”
“I went back on Father’s Day and guess who was in the room? Steve Wozniak.”
Kris Jenner didn’t go into detail about baby North West and after disappointing her audience with the baby double, told America that she wouldn’t be bringing her granddaughter onto the show.
“That would be kidnapping, I wouldn’t do it to Kim, just give her some time and peace and she’ll be out showing her off herself,” Kris Jenner continued.
Today’s Kris show was the beginning of six-week test run on America’s right-wing station, she was offered support from celebrity friends including Simon Cowell and chat show stalwart Regis Philbin in a series of short films throughout the hour.
Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and their daughter North have been living in Kris Jenner’s since the baby birth on June 15.
But Kim Kardashian, 32, initially had some serious reservations about moving in with mother Kris Jenner, and is now rumored to be upping sticks.
In a preview for Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian is not convinced as Kris Jenner urges her to move in.
Kim Kardashian had been looking at rental properties but her mother and manager offered her another option.
“You don’t want to be all the way on the other side and you need one of us,” Kris Jenner told her heavily pregnant daughter.
“You’re going to be isolated in Beverly Hills with a baby.”
She went on: “Live with me in this gorgeous house. That would be the perfect scenario.”
But Kim Kardashian wasn’t so keen – because she “hates” the black and white interior of her mother’s home.
“I can’t take a shower in a black shower,” she whined.
In a surprisingly endearing turn, Kris Jenner then attempted to win Kim Kardashian over to the shower by saying that she feels “like a ninja” in it.
But the move was simply met by silence from Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney and a pitying laugh from Kendall Jenner.

Kim Kardashian was determined to finish her rant and said: “The toilet paper’s black. I like to see what I’m s****ing and what I’m wiping.”
And she had the full support of her big sister Kourtney on the matter at hand.
Kourtney Kardashian, 34, wide-eyed and serious, said: “The toilet paper also leaves little black dots in your v**.”
Kris Jenner, 57, thought of the perfect solution to the problem by offering to buy white toilet paper, but a part of Kim Kardashian still remained unconvinced.
She told the cameras: “I just know I’m going to get crazy and I’ll go crazy living here. I don’t know what to do.”
The preview comes as reports have emerged that Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and baby North have now found a mansion to rent until renovations are complete on their Bel Air home.
A source toldRadar Online: “Kim and Kanye have finally settled on a temporary mansion for their family to move into. It should be ready for them to move in the next two weeks.
“It’s over 8,000 square feet and offers complete privacy, which was a big concern of Kanye’s. The security system is being upgraded and Nori’s nursery is being outfitted with surveillance cameras.”
And North’s safety is apparently of utmost concern for rapper Kanye West.
The insider added: “When it comes to Nori’s safety, Kanye isn’t taking any chances. Kim has had stalkers in the past, so nothing is being left to chance.
“Of course, Kim wants everything to be perfect immediately for their temporary residence, even though it’s a rental. Family pictures are being hung on the walls in the house, and Kim is talking about painting Nori’s room.”
