In Kris Jenner's home, the cameras are always rolling. The matriarch of the first family of reality TV is notoriously candid, but is there really such a thing as knowing too much about a Jenner or Kardashian? By reading the following factoids we discovered about Kris, people might learn a thing or two about being an outrageously successful momager. We are talking about the woman who successfully pitched a TV show about her family's drama to Ryan Seacrest, after all. 

Kris Jenner may seem like an open book, but all folks have interesting little details about themselves that we never thought of. Although she mostly keeps the spotlight on her famous children, Kris definitely has an intriguing life herself. There are so many fascinating things to know about her. And we, of course, want to know them. We need to know the woman behind the most famous family in the world. 

One wouldn't really use the word mysterious to describe the Kardashians -- everything we would want to know about them is broadcasted for the world to see. But Kris isn't really like that. She has kept certain things under wraps, but we are here to uncover all the things you didn't know about the famous head of the Kardashian family. 

From random business ventures, to her relationships, to where she likes to shop, there is more to Kris than what we see on our television screens. Here are 15 random facts that many people probably don't know about momager Kris Jenner!

1Costco's MVP

Kris is cuckoo for Costco. "Costco is a passion," she confessed in an interview with the New York Times Magazine. "Costco is like a massage." If you thought she was being budget-conscious by shopping at the discount-friendly warehouse chain, you're wrong. According to Kris, "During the summer, there'll be a fabulous surfboard. I don't surf, but I've got to buy a surfboard. I mean, that's how crazy I am."

2Hell on Wheels

When they were still married, Caitlyn bought Kris a Harley-Davidson for Christmas. Kris crashed the motorcycle the day she received it. This family's proclivity for auto accidents continues to astound us.

3Time Is Money

Unlike the White Rabbit of Alice in Wonderland notoriety, Kris is never late for a very important date. As the self-proclaimed momager told Us Weekly, "I get crazy if someone is late." We promise we'll never be late to brunch again, Kris!

4Praise the Lord ... for $1,000

In 2012, Kris founded a church in Agoura Hills with Pastor Brad Johnson. For just $1,000 a month, anyone can join the California Community Church and feel a little bit closer to God and Kris Jenner.

5Attention All Passengers

Kris, then Kristen Mary Houghton, met her future husband Robert Kardashian when she was 17. She rejected his first marriage proposal and became an American Airlines flight attendant instead. Kris accepted Robert's second proposal, and the pair got married when she was 22.

6She's a Survivor

As a child, Kris developed a malignant bone tumor. A successful surgery removed the tumor and prevented the cancer from spreading. Kris has been cancer-free ever since.

7Family Ties

Kris has a significantly less famous sister named Karen. Their parents, Robert Houghton and Mary Jo Shannon, divorced when the girls were young. Mary Jo raised the sisters while Robert worked as an aircraft engineer. Mary Jo now owns a children's boutique called Shannon & Co.

8She Really Loves Her Friends

To celebrate her 30th birthday, Kris recorded a music video called "I Love My Friends" in 1985. The song is a parody of Randy Newman's "I Love LA," and the video is a testament to everything that was gloriously cheesy about the mid-'80s.

9Good God, Lemon

Kris has a celebrity crush, and the celebrity in question is none other than Alec Baldwin, who will forever be immortalized as Jack Donaghy in our hearts. Pardon us, we have to go watch a couple of episodes of 30 Rock.

10Management Material

Long before Kris was a momager, she was a wifeager. Soon after Kris married Caitlyn Jenner, she became Caitlyn's manager. Kris advanced Caitlyn's motor racing career, negotiated her endorsement deals, and publicized her motivational speech, "Finding the Champion Within." No wonder Kris was so good at promoting her daughters' careers from the get-go.

12Climb Every Mountain

It turns out that Kris likes a good dose of drama in her movies. Her favorites are Doctor Zhivago and The Sound of Music. The families featured in those films may be the only ones more dramatic than hers.

13Organized Chaos

Kris unwinds by organizing her surroundings. Just look at hyper-organized her refrigerator. Her O.C.D. hashtag might not be far off the mark. Unlike many people who suffer from O.C.D., though, Kris can pay people to make everything in her life exactly the way she likes it.

14Let Him Eat Cake

Kris baked lemon cakes for Khloe's ex-husband, Lamar Odom, on a weekly basis. We can't help but wonder if the cakes were mentioned in Khloe and Lamar's prenup.
