"We showed ourselves as we truly were. We showed our lives and our loves and shared the things that truly mattered to us, without filter. That’s what people responded to, and all of a sudden people all over the world were really invested in us and what we’re up to as a family. It changed everything."
As if having six children isn’t enough work in itself, the Keeping up with the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner also manages the Kardashian empire and executive produces the multi-award winning TV show. She personally pitched the idea for the show to Ryan Seacrest in 2007, thinking that it could maybe bring more attention to the professional lives of her daughters, and now more than a decade later Kardashians is still a top-rated show broadcast across the globe. Managing her daughters’ professional lives and business ventures has caused Kris to become a savvy and well-established business woman, and she also operates a communications company and has authored multiple books. Kris has even trademarked the term “momager,” which is a testament to how seriously she takes her role in her childrens’ lives and embodies the loving and protective nature of a mom with the discipline and business knowledge of a celebrity manager.
