Kris Jenner is the epitome of a mom boss. The 65-year-old momager is credited with helping to launch the careers of her children. Since the debut of their reality series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in 2007, Kris has been hard at work managing her daughters’ careers. Aside from reality television, Kris has assisted her kids in endorsement deals along with creating their own fashion and cosmetics lines.
Jenner’s oldest daughter Kourtney Kardashian says her mom is always hard at work. Whether she’s talking business or doing a renovation at home, Kris is on the go nonstop. “KUWTK” has even caught a few moments where Kris showed her mom boss side.
1. Ariana Grande Music Video
Like her daughters, Kris too has also become a celebrity. In 2018, she had the chance to work with singer Ariana Grande. The pop star invited the Kardashian matriarch to be part of the music video for “Thank U, Next.”
Grande made an appearance on “KUWTK” to meet Kris before filming the music video. The two women happily chatted as Ariana explained the premise of the video. In the “Thank U, Next” video, Grande spoofs several movies including “Mean Girls.” For Kris’ part, she spoofed Amy Poehler’s role as Regina George’s mom. Wearing a pink sweatsuit, Jenner starts dancing around the auditorium with a camcorder while filming the Christmas pageant.
2. Remodeling Her Mom’s House
Kris has a very close relationship with her mother Mary Jo aka MJ. Kardashian fans have gotten to know MJ thanks to her few guest appearances on “KUWTK.” It didn’t take long to see where the Kardashians got their fun personalities from.
Grandma MJ is adored by her family, and during one episode they decided to do something special for her. Kris decided to renovate her mother’s condo. Jenner was definitely in control that day as she inspected every room and instructed the movers on where to put everything. A lot of work went into the grand gesture, but it was one Kris and MJ were pleased with.
3. Beach Girl 5
Jenner has made a steady career as her children’s manager. But in the early seasons of “KUWTK,” she contemplated taking on more clients. One of them was an all-girl group called Beach Girl 5 or BG5.
Kris thought the girls were talented and they wanted to have Jenner as their manager. However, Kris was already overwhelmed taking care of her daughters’ careers and had to pass up BG5’s offer. During a visit to the studio, Kris became emotional as she explained her decision to the girls. Although, the girls were understanding, Kris found the decision difficult to make.
4. Giving Back To The Community
Although, Jenner’s days are mostly filled with talking business deals, the star knows the importance of giving back to the community. “KUWTK” showed how big of a heart Kris had when it came to charity. One project Kris was passionate about was the Watts Community Center.
After meeting with Justin Mayo, Kris wanted to help save a community center for kids to have a safe place to go after school. Kris helped brainstorm ideas for renovations including putting in a playground. During a visit during the renovation process, Kris was overwhelmed by all the work. She even became emotional when a mother thanked her for making this possible for their kids.
