It was such a dark time for the entire family
It’s believed that you shouldn’t denounce the things that help you out; you shouldn’t “bite the hand that feeds you.” But Kris Jenner has no problem talking about how badly her daughter Kim Kardashian’s intimate video tape with her boyfriend affected not only her life, but the lives of all of her children and family. In a new interview, Kris wants to make clear that not only did she have nothing to do with the selling of the sex tape, but that it hurt her heart deeply that it got out.
Kris Jenner is one of the most recognizable mothers in America, and she’s going to be a huge facet of American pop culture for decades to come along with her six children and growing number of grandchildren. But she had no idea that she was going to be this famous.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kris opened up about how something terrible led her family to a glamorous life.
The Birth of Reality
Kris thought that reality TV was pretty fun to watch, and she fondly recalls one of the very first family reality shows that aired, saying, “I remember watching The Osbournes thinking, ‘How funny!’ It was just fascinating to watch somebody at home living life in their own house.”
Soon enough, the Kardashian family would be granted their very own show that they didn’t know would propel them to incredible fame. “I thought this would be such a great thing to do with my kids. The one thing we did discuss at the time was, ‘If we’re gonna do this, let’s just do it really organically — let’s let it all hang out and let’s show who we are.'”
But the show only came about because in 2006, Kim’s little tape featuring her and her then-boyfriend Ray J getting it on was released to the world. While the circumstances surrounding the manufacturing and distribution of the tape are still being speculated about, Kris denies being involved in it whatsoever, and even says that it was a “devastating” time in her family’s life.
She had even more to say about how that still-popular tape has affected the lives of the Kardashians and Jenners…
