Kris Jenner is the QUEEN of garnering the media’s attention.
Ever since “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” aired in 2007, viewers have seen time after time Kris’ puppeteering skills put to the test.
It seems whenever views for their former show were down, something INSANE happened to one to the famous family.
Whenever there was a new company one of her daughter’s was launching, or a scandal that needed attention taken away from it, Kris was there to work her magic.
Given their new Hulu show, which has yet to be named, is coming soon to a TV near you in the new year, let’s take a look at some of Kris’ best media manipulations.
As of late, there has been A LOT going on in the Kardashian-Jenner’s lives.
Kourtney Kardashian got engaged, Kim’s going through with her divorce from Kanye West and dating Pete Davidson, Kylie Jenner is getting ready to give birth for a second time, Travis Scott’s being sued for billions, and Khloe is dealing with more Tristan Thompson drama.
I mean, HOW convenient all of this is going down right before their new show airs.
Kris knows how to make the media work in her favor!
And HOW convenient is it that cameras were spotted in social media posts, well, at least for Kourtney’s engagement.
We are not confirming or denying these recent events will be documented on the new show, but one can’t help but assume these hot topics will be captured.
It would make great TV, and the Kar-Jenner women need to premiere on Hulu with a BANG!
Since we don’t know what exactly will be documented, let’s look back at what has been documented and the timing of it all starting “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” in 2007.
This might’ve been the year that Britney Spears shaved her head, but it was also the year that Kim Kardashian’s infamous 2003 sex tape with Ray J “accidentally” leaked.
Kris Jenner conveniently has cameras rolling when drama happens
What a solid talking point for the first season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” which premiered on October 14, 2007.
Around the time the show aired, Kim’s celebrity status skyrocketed as she would continue to address the sex tape leak on talk shows, radio shows and interviews for years to come. This immediately hooked viewers into hoping she’d address it more on the TV show.
Kim would steal the spotlight on the show for a good seven years, before the youngest Kar-Jenner child would take center stage.
How could anyone forget the talk of reality TV was, “Did Kylie get lip injections or not?”
Rumors that Kylie had gotten lip fillers as a 15-year-old began devouring headlines as fans shared side-by-side photos and picked apart her new image.
In a now-deleted tweet from April of 2015, Kylie denied getting lip fillers, which obviously just made the internet that much more convinced she did get them.
She wrote, “These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting. Just in case anyone forgot.. I’m 16.”
The truth came out later on in 2015 just after Ky had turned 17, as she finally confessed to having ‘temporary lip fillers’ as a means of masking a big insecurity of hers during “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” confessional.
Kylie’s Lips Injection Confession Led To Billion-Dollar Business
Kylie’s lips were addressed later on in season 10, and not only was this a perfectly-executed PR movement to help promote the show, but it also launched Kylie’s multi-billion dollar makeup business.
Views for that season soared to 2.09 million viewers.
However, the following seasons of ‘KUWTK’ continued to slip in viewership, but by 2017 Kris was able to make the unthinkable happen.
Not one, not two, but three of her daughters were expecting babies.
Kim was expecting her daughter Chicago via surrogate, Kylie was (secretly) expecting her first child, Stormi Webster, and Khloe announced she was also expecting her first child, True Thompson.
The family is said to have “leaked the news of both Khloe and Kylie’s pregnancies just TWO DAYS before the family’s 10th anniversary special and two WEEKS before Kim announced she hired a surrogate to have their third child.
TMZ published an article on September 22nd about Kylie’s pregnancy, and on September 26th the outlet published the news of Khloe’s pregnancy. That’s FOUR days apart, and four days before the season 14 premiere.
Only a genius media manipulator could execute this without getting caught.
Of course, there are many more events, scandals and incidents involving the famous family where the timing was just too perfect.
It kind of makes you think, how authentic and real is anything in the Kar-Jenner family.
