Kris Jenner is a self-proclaimed momager -- a combination of manager and mother. She undeniably rocks the manager role, leading the Kardashian clan down the road toward billionaire status and swooping in on any and every opportunity she can to expand their brand. As for the mom part of her role, she often seems to bulldoze right over it.
Two recent reports make her look even worse on the mom front ... if that's possible. Both have to do with Khloe Kardashian, whom Kris seems to clash with the most. In the first, she supposedly is ordering Khloe to get a divorce from Lamar Odom. Not because she thinks the relationship is unhealthy or due to any maternal instinct like that, but sources say it's because she thinks it would be good for their show's ratings.
Of course, it's just a rumor and I doubt she would actually order a divorce, but I wouldn't be surprised if she has her fingers in their supposed marital woes in some way, shape, or form. A source told Hollywood Life:
Kris is constantly telling Khloe that marital conflicts equals ratings! Kris has convinced Khloe that if it weren’t for Lamar, she would not have her own reality show and that if she wants another season she needs to embellish the conflicts in the marriage because that’s what viewers want.
I can't imagine even Kris would sink that low, but you can never say never when it comes to the lengths Kris will go for a buck.
More from The Stir: Kim Kardashian Could Be Losing Weight the Wrong Way
The second recent report is more than just rumor and involves Khloe's weight once again. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Khloe comes right and says that her mom calls her "fat."
She’ll say, "Oh, you’re a little too fat right now." If she were just my manager, I’d have fired her right then. You can’t talk to me like that.
So why is it okay for her mom to talk to her like that? We've seen before on the show how much it bothers Khloe, so why doesn't Kris stop and see her beautiful daughter through the eyes of a mother instead of scrutinizing how she'll look on film? I imagine sometimes all of the Kardashian girls just want a mom who's a mom, but it doesn't seem like Jenner is able to put aside business to be one.
Khloe defends Kris saying her mom believes in her and her sisters more than they believe in themselves, and that she's just "trying to protect our brand.” That's great, but at what price?
Do you think Kris Jenner is out of line for calling Khloe 'fat'? Do you think she'd really try to stir up problems in Khloe's marriage just for ratings?
