CNN Style: Kris Jenner Interview

So I wanted to share an interview/short film regarding Kris Jenner that was commissioned by CNN Style guest editor, Olivier Rousteing. All credit goes to my buddies at CNN Style. It is good to strip away the “celebrity” aspect of an individual and truly get down to the core of who they are and their personal philosophy. If you like fashion, art, auto, and architecture, then CNN Style will be for you. Check out some of the highlights from the conversation below, as well as a link to the video.

I have a very diverse family for sure. I feel like our family is sort of a little, mini, United Nations. It’s just so great and brings so much criticism sometimes from people who just don’t understand. Things get crazy, or you know, chaotic. Or you know you’re just trying to get it right and everyone makes mistakes. For sure, I’ve probably made a handful of my share.


Well I think it’s definitely a balance being a mum and then being a manager. When you do a reality show like we do, it’s kind of fair game. And I think that from the very beginning we just decided to let it all hang out, in order to have a great presence on the show.


I think the focus has been, and always is, about the love and the kids and the grand-kids and just all about that. I will drop anything to do something for the kids. That’s personal, way over anything business. They know that that’s just the rule.


My mum and I were really close when I was growing up and when I was 13 years old I started working in my grandmother’s candle store, and my mother had a store down the street in La Jolla, so we all worked together, so that’s kind of the foundation and the background of I think what makes it so special that me and my kids work together. Through the years I got a very good education that I never would have gotten from a proper schooling. Learning how to be accountable for what’s going on in your life. I think that I was able to pay that forward, if you will, to my kids.


You just have to take what comes one day at a time. I’m a firm believer that god has a handle on everything and everything happens for a reason. 

Blended News

I’ve been nursing  an injury albeit small but hopefully does not require any surgery which is why I won’t be blogging too often until things are settled. I wanted to leave a few thoughts on some news that happened during the month of July:

Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Welcomes Baby Girl Penelope Scotland

Congratulations to the couple for welcoming their second child to the world.

Kardashian Sisters Want Spin-Off

Kendall and Kylie would like their own spin-off show which is something that I believe will be granted to them in a few years but just not now. As long as there is a demand for the Kardashian/Jenner family, these two will be in the spotlight. With Kourtney having her baby, Kim’s romance with Kanye, and Lamar Odom’s potential resurgence with the Los Angeles Clippers, there will be a ton of ammo for future shows.

Steven Tyler & JLo Leave Idol/ Mariah Carey Joins

Neither of these judges lasted long unlike Randy Jackson who has been a judge since the show’s inception. Though the paychecks were huge, Steven recently said that Idol wasn’t his “cup of tea”. Jennifer Lopez also credited Tyler’s absence as one of the reasons she was leaving the show. Steven Tyler went back to work with his fellow Aerosmith band-mates while JLo is currently on tour. The biggest news is that Mariah Carey has confirmed that she will be a judge on the upcoming season of American Idol. Carey is a legendary vocalist who was showing off her musical talent to the world at a time when Jlo was just a fly girl. Carey is a great choice has a judge and has been around for a little over two decades. She’ll bring something unique to the show.

Frank Ocean

“4 summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19. He was too. We spent that summer, and the summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide”. I don’t have any secrets I need to keep anymore. I feel like a free man.”

I want to commend Frank Ocean for doing something that is tough to do in the music industry especially in the hip-hop r&b culture. It took guts to tell this story to his fans and naysayers all over. He now feels free and can focus on the art that people loved him for and not have to feel like he is holding a secret that would have only became a burden for him.

Will There Be A Rush Hour 4?

I was just thinking about Rush Hour 3 and how I felt that movie was a total fail compared to the first two installments. Some on Twitter may think that I was crazy but someone close to the franchise actually agreed with me. Arthur Sarkissian, the producer of all of the Rush Hour films had something to say about the third installment which came out in 2007.

“I personally was not happy with the third one. I thought 1 and 2 were very good. I think 3 got out of hand a little bit”.

Though Jackie Chan stated that he was done with the actions movies back in May, I think if he decides to come back for the fourth one it will be the Rush Hour film that we deserve that will officially close Chan and Chris Tucker’s chapter with the franchise. That is only if it is done correctly. Arthur Sarkissian is also in favor of bringing in a few new characters to freshen up the franchise.

Kourtney Kardashian Expecting Again?

Someone from the Kardashian family is expecting a child, and it’s not Kim. That’s right guys, Kourtney Kardashian is back at it again. Kourtney made the announcement to UsWeekly and E! News. Kourtney is nine weeks into her pregnancy, and she along with Scott will be welcoming a new boy/girl next year. Kourtney and Scott’s son Mason is just two years old and in the near future he will become a big brother. The Kardashians have not been shy of the spotlight as of late. Recently, Kris Humphries filed an annulment of the lack of marriage he had with Kim. Also we had Rob Kardashian make it to the finals of Dancing With The Stars but he ultimately lost. There are now rumors of Kris Jenner being featured on the dancing show next season. This family brings a ton of media buzz no matter where they are or what they’re doing. Who knows how long this media craze can continue, but I’d like to congratulate Kourtney and Scott on their exciting news.

The Kardashian Effect

Keeping up with the Kardashians return with its’ sixth season tonight at 10 pm eastern. You can expect more drama and a new addition to the show. That is Kim’s fiance Kris Humphries. This family is a cash cow for the E network which is why there are and will continue to be many more spin-offs. For those who love the Kardashian family, be prepared for another season of laughter, tears, fights, and of course the most important aspect is love. The questions remains still, how do you feel about the Kardashian family and their continuing dominance of the E network with their of reality series?
