Kris Jenner Tells Us What It's Like To Be A Saint

The master of all things Kardashian spoke to Good Morning America today about being "so torn" between being the manager of a multi-million dollar empire and a mother to the daughters she's making money off of. While she made no mention about being a glorified pimp, she did take on the age-old question of "why are the Kardashians famous again?"


"We're not actors, we're not singers, we don't have musical talent, I can't dance to save my life. Some people will say, 'you're famous for being famous.' And I say, well, no we're not: we're famous because we have four television shows."


Ahem: You're famous because your daughter Kim — and her enviable ass — were in a sex tape.

Even so, Kris says it's so hard to be a "Momager," because she wants to be "the perfect Mom: at home, baking cookies while at the same time [closing deals] in my office." Her office, by the way, is filled to the brim with Kardashian swag: books, calendars, fragrances — you name it, and if it's got Kim, Kourtney, or Khloe's name or face slapped on it, it will be in that office, each like a shiny trophy that represents Mrs. Jenner's hard work. Because it's Kris that makes all of the Kardashian-branded content and associations in the first place, closing all of those deals and taking a cut of the profits. When asked if she thinks it's at all weird that her daughters write her a paycheck, Kris responded as like a politician: she hadn't really ever thought about it that way before.

"You know, I work so hard, but that's a great question. You know, I really haven't thought about it like that. But we work on things all together, we work so hard, and I do: I put in 18 hour days whether we're filming or not."

A few other takeaways from this interview: Kris's decisions are usually based on a mother's intuition, the sound of the family's doorbell is their Keeping Up With The Kardashians theme song, and Kris believes being a good mother comes down to how well you make baked goods: "I think I'm a really great mom — and I make a really good chocolate chip cookie." Which she will trademark and sell you, if you're interested.

Why in this culture are 18 hour days celebrated? What about life has led anyone to believe that a healthy way to live it is to work for 18 hours a day. It is what makes me want to run away to a much slower paced country. I love NYC, but everyone is so go go go and so concentrated on their "success" that people never have free time and i'm left seeing "friends" once a week for a quick meal, where all we get to do is ask what is new since the last week.
