Kris Jenner's Sister Won't Shut Up About Her Parenting Skills
Karen Houghton insists the Kardashians momager is not a "monster mom."
The only problem is… she gave the interview.
But she’s insisting the tabloid got it all wrong.
“She’s not a monster mom. She is a wonderful mother,” Karen Houghton told Celebuzz.
“I didn’t say she was a monster mother or would I ever! I adore and love my sister very much. She’s my blood. I’d do anything for her.
“I hope when she reads this, she knows. She’s smart enough, she knows.”
Aunt Karen, who’s a part-time nurse in the San Diego area, has tried over and over to get in touch with her big sis -- to no avail (no surprise there).
“I don’t lie, I’m a Christian, this is off the charts.
“This is bullsh*t.”
For now, she’s just nervously anticipating the reactions from those closest to her.
“I left her [Kris] two messages and she hasn’t called me back. I said ‘Kris, I love you. I think you’re a wonderful mother.’
“She told me ‘don’t talk to the paparazzi. They’ll f**k you.' Those are her words. I’m only worried because she’s going to be pissed off.
“My mom is going to call me up and yell at me.
“I just texted [my nephew] Robert [Kardashian] ‘please call me.’ Bruce just texted me [on Facebook] ‘you’re wonderful and worth millions, we know you, you’re beautiful, kind and giving. F**k the media.”
The 54-year-old points out a few inaccuracies she claims weren’t discussed when the reporter knocked on her door.
“They kept coming to my house so finally one day I let them in," she said. “So we sat down and they took some photos. I guess I’m an idiot because I believe people."
The glossy claims the newly-separated Kris put the moves on Bachelor Ben Flajnik, who’s already set the record straight on that rumor. And Aunt Karen says she never said her sis spent a million bucks on nips and tucks.
“I didn’t know she had a thing for a TV hunk [Flajnik] and I didn’t know she dropped a million on plastic surgery. I never said that,” she said. “I said she got a face lift and it’s been on the show. But let her! It’s her money. She’s on TV. Who cares, she’s beautiful.
Let’s take a look a few other highlights the mag quotes her as saying:
"You know what drives Kris? Power, power, power. And money. Fame and fortune ruin people."
"She's a workaholic and a hustler. It's called wanting power. It's Gucci purses, Bentleys, all the things I don't care about but she does. It's a addiction and it's because you're unhappy. You do these things because there's a hole that's not filled."
"She came out of the womb saying 'Where's my Ferrari?'"
"Kris will do whatever it takes to make more money and make the family more famous. It's been her goal forever."
"The whole world knows it -- Kris is vain. She was kind of chubby when she was little."
"My father would have been proud of her and amazed at what she's done. But he'd have been disappointed because she's always so busy. Kris wouldn't have had time for him."
So after this headline-making headache, Karen’s not so sure opening her mouth was really worth it -- considering she didn’t get paid -- but she did get a hotel stay out of it for her cooperation.
“I better be compensated for this! "‘I said, Mike [at In Touch], can you Fed Ex me a check?’” she told CB! “All they gave me was a night at La Costa Country Club. But I have a house, I live here, I have money to stay there whenever I want. It’s $350 a night and a dinner, which I didn’t even eat,” she added, laughing.
“I didn’t say they were separated," she said. "I said Bruce has another house, a beach house, so he comes back and forth."
Well, the gig is now up, considering the reality couple just announced they are in fact living separate lives in their separate mansions.
“I feel like I’m kicking a dog who’s already down,” Karen said with remorse.
“I wanted them to stay together. I really did. I like Bruce and I still do. He used to send gifts to my little girl for Christmas. And I love my sister and if that’s what they wanted…
“I don’t really know [why they split]. But sometimes they would argue. I think Kris was gone making money. Every marriage… how do you know? I was up there [in L.A.] a few months ago and he was in the house. Kris didn’t tell me so I assumed they were still together.
“They’re busy people and sometimes people need to take a step back from one another," she said. "You know the saying, ‘absence makes the heart grow stronger.’ From my heart, I think they’ll stay together.”
