Known to the world as “The Momager,” Kris Jenner does a little bit of everything. An all-around businesswoman, Kris Jenner manages the careers of her six children and also her husband, Bruce Jenner. In addition to this, Kris Jenner also owns her own retail store on the upscale side of Los Angeles.
Kris Jenner has had those businesses for years and the explosion of her daughters’ reality shows on E! have opened more doors. In addition to doing her shows with them, she has expressed interest in managing their boyfriends. But, Kris Jenner decided to use her connections to launch her own talk show through FOX.
The show, properly titled “Kris,” launched this summer and it closed with the unveiling of her granddaughter, North West. This coincided with Kanye West’s interview and the #KanyeSoundsLike jokes on Twitter and Instagram. Now, coming as a shock to few, “Kris” is getting the ax and released a statement was leaked.
Read the statement on “Kris” below:
“There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX. The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it. Kris did get a ratings bump for her last show when Kanye West revealed the first baby pic of daughter, North West, with Kim, but that was a one time shot in the arm and it wouldn’t be indicative of what the ratings trend would be.
“It’s a very crowded market and Kris didn’t do anything to set herself apart from the field. Believe it or not, most of America doesn’t want to hear about the Kardashian’s for an hour everyday. It will be announced in a low key fashion, probably on a Friday afternoon so it won’t generate a ton of negative press for Kris.”
