There are far too many facts and trivia to write in one piece about Kris Jenner, most people probably already know the majority of them due to her perpetual courting of the media; so here Alice Doherty has kept it to the exciting, simple facts about the Kardashian Matriarch.
Kris Jenner, nee Houghton, began her career as a flight attentant, she found fame through her first marriage to attorney Robert Kardashian, a defence lawyer who found prominence due to his representation during the infamous OJ Simpson trial; Kris later confessed that she felt conflicted throughout the trial due to her husband's friendship with Simpson, and her own close friendship with with Simpson's murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. Kris married Kardashian at the age of 22 in 1978, Kardashian filed for divorce in 1990, sadly dying prematurely in 2003. Kris is currently married to Olympic Decathlete, and cosmetic surgery fan, Bruce Jenner, the pair married a year after Kris' divorce in 1991.
Kris has four children by Kardashian; Kim, Kourtney, Rob and Khloe (Although Khloe's paternity has continually been questioned), and two daughters, Kyle and Kendal, with Jenner. Kris' celebrity increased with the successful series Keeping up with the Kardashian broadcast on E!. Kris is manager to all of her children in their various modelling careers, resulting in her nickname 'Momager.' Kris has also courted fame individually with the release of her 2011 autobiography, aptly titled Kris Jenner…And All Things Kardashian, in which she shockingly discloses her affair with Todd Waterman during her marriage to Kardashian.
Personally my favourite trivia about Kris is the Mercedes that she bought for herself on Khloe's 16th birthday to celebrate her being a mother for 16 years, let alone Khloe's celebrations. Kris had made no secret of her being a fan of plastic surgery, most recently Kris underwent surgery two months before Kim's car crash wedding , to 'freshen up' for the failed nuptials, she allowed E! to record the journey of her recovery.
Head of a prosperous business empire and star of a lucrative reality series, Kris seems to have climbed and conquered the pinnacle of success, hauling her large brood with her.
