The Kardashian-Jenner “Klan” is probably one of the most famous in the media world today. From Olympian father Bruce Jenner (more recently–Caitlyn Jenner), to the scandal of a sex tape, the publishing of an all-selfie book, or an 18-year-old’s lip injections, this family always seems to hold the spotlight.
The ever-running, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is premiering its 11th season on November 15th. The show has birthed about six different spin-off series including the TV mini-series I Am Cait (2015), which premiered in July and followed the transformation of Bruce into Caitlyn. Nonetheless, there is an undying fascination with this family, which ultimately led to the CNN video segment, Kris Jenner on the art of motherhood .
The caption for the video on the CNN website sheds a spotlight on just how many people are keeping up with the Kardashians:
“Kris Jenner and her clan of six children have a social media reach, on Instagram alone, of 208.2 million. If that were a country, it’d be bigger than Brazil.”
I did not think it was possible, but if the Kardashians could be summed up in one phrase Kris Jenner said it with her opening line: “I have a very diverse family, for sure.”
There is no doubt that the Kardashian-Jenner household would be far from a dull place to call home. In the video interview mom and manager Kris admits that “things get crazy” in what she likes to call her “mini-united nations.”
Anyone from a big family knows that when a bunch of big personalities get together under one roof, all bets are off. With the bonus additions of wealth, media, and business it’s safe to say that Jenner has her hands full. “You just have to take what comes, you know, one day at a time,” she said. Well said considering the mass publicity her children have grown up with.
The mom/manager combo is inspired by her own upbringing. Jenner worked alongside her mother and grandmother from the early age of 12. She credits her experience in working with family for her an education that the mom/manager claims she would not have received in a formal school setting. Happy to now pass on this knowledge to her own children, she still notes she is not without fault. “Everyone makes mistakes, for sure, I probably made, you know a handful of my share,” she said.
She acknowledges the criticism her family faces with the decision “to let it all hang out” on the reality series. Mom or manager, at the end of the day it’s all about her love for the kids. Like any mom, she says she will drop anything for her kids because they come first, and “they know that’s the rule.”
