Kris Jenner is the manager and socialite family matriach for all of her family members, who are now big celebrities: Kim Kardashian Humphries, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian Odom in particular. She is also the wife of Olympic Champion Bruce Jenner, and the former wife of late famed Orange County, CA defense lawyer Robert Kardashian, Sr.; they were married from 1978-1990, and art the parents of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert Jr.. Kris has been added to host panel on the CBS-TV daytime talk show The Talk as of August 26, 2011.
Kris Jenner Early life and career
Kris was born in San Diego, California, the daughter of Mary and Dave Houghton, who had two other daughters, Karen and Sarah. She was raised solely by her mother, because her parents went through a divorce when she was seven. Her father died in 2001 at age 71. In 1978, Kris met future husband, lawyer Robert Kardashian Sr. (widely known for his early representation of O.J. Simpson) while working as a flight attendant. They were married from June 1978 until their divorce in 1990. With him she had four children: Kourtney Mary on April 18, 1979; Kimberly Noel on October 21, 1980; Khloé Alexandra on June 27, 1984 and Robert George Kardashian Jr. on March 17, 1987. Jenner was a housewife while her children were growing up. Following marital difficulties Kris filed for divorce in 1990. Robert Kardashian Sr. died September 30, 2003, two months after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
Kris Jenner Involvement in the O.J. Simpson trial
The Kardashian family was very close to O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson. The O.J. Simpson trial caused conflict between already divorced Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian. Kardashian was on O.J.'s defense team, while Jenner supported her best friend, Nicole. It was especially hard for all of their children, because they had to choose whom to support: their mother and Bruce, or their father. In 2008,when O.J. Simpson was sentenced for armed robbery, Jenner said she had "mixed emotions" about the sentence.
Career and fame
Kris and her oldest daughter Kourtney opened Smooch, a children's clothing boutique, in 2003. They ran the store until late 2009 when they decided to close it, because Kourtney became pregnant. She became a millionaire over night, due to Keeping up with the Kardashians. Jenner now manages all the members of her family and co-manages the girl group BG5, or The Beach Girl5, with son Rob.
Kris and Bruce own Jenner Communications Inc. together. She is most known for being the executive producer and starring in the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Jenner also produces Khloe & Lamar, a show featuring her third daughter Khloe. The Kardashian family made a combined total of 65 million dollars in 2010. Kris Jenner's current net worth alone is estimated to be 20 million dollars.
Kris and current husband Bruce married on April 21, 1991. Kris has two daughters with Bruce, Kendall Nicole (b. November 3, 1995) and Kylie Kristen (b. August 10, 1997). Like Kris, Bruce had already been married and had four children: Burt, Casey, Brody, and Brandon. On December 14, 2009, Jenner became a grandmother when Kourtney and her long-time boyfriend Scott Disick had their first child, Mason Dash Disick.
Tattoos and plastic surgery
Jenner has one tattoo on her lower back that has the names of her daughters Kendall and Kylie, which she got while she was drunk with her friend Ellen K (radio hostess), as seen on Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 2 episode 15.
On June 2011, Jenner had gotten a facelift months before Kim's wedding. She allowed before and after the surgery to be recorded. The video footage can be seen on E! Online. She explained,"I needed a little freshening up for the wedding. Just doing what a girl's gotta do!"
