    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."

    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.

  • Time 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!

    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.

    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.

  • She 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.

  • Good 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.

  • Management 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.

  • When Every Bee's a Killer

    Every great warrior has an Achilles' heel, and for Kris Jenner, it's bees. Kris told Us magazine that she's "deathly allergic to bees" and always has an EpiPen on hand.

    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.

  • Organized 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. 

  • Let 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.

  • (Her) Life Is a Cabaret

    In 2010, Jenner performed in a benefit production of Cabaret. She played the role of a prostitute named Fraulein Kost. As far as musicals go, Cabaret seems like a fitting choice for a woman whose life is recorded for all to see on a reality TV show.
