The mastermind and self-professed “momager” behind the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” empire now has her own starring role.
Kris Jenner has landed her own daytime talk show that’s scheduled to launch this summer as a preview on select FOX stations.
“Kris” will be a daily, one-hour entertainment talk show that “will offer daytime viewers a daily jolt of celebrity guests, fashion & beauty trends; plus a mix of lifestyle topics – all through the distinctive and unpredictable perspective of Kris Jenner,” according to the press release.
“This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true!” said the reality star and mother of six. “I can’t wait for this new adventure to begin and look forward to working alongside Twentieth Television and the Fox Television Stations.”
The program comes from Twentieth Television and will appear in major markets as a trial, similar to the test run that Bethenny Frankel went through before her talk show “Bethenny” was picked up for national syndication.
News that Jenner was pursuing her own daytime program first surfaced last October. She has previously guest co-hosted CBS’s “The Talk” and filled in on the fourth hour of “Today.”
“The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian & Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines. At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner – a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host,” said Stephen Brown, EVP of Development & Programming, Twentieth Television, in a statement. “The Fox Television Stations are the perfect partners for this talk show as they continue to have a successful track record of previewing hit, first-run syndicated programming on their stations.”
