Kris Jenner wasn’t always a Hollywood power player, but she ever had an eye for golden opportunity.
And in 1990, that possibility presented itself in the form of a down-on-their-luck Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner!
While chatting with Janet Mock on the podcast Never Before, the KUWTK matriarch exposed the “incredible potential” “shes seen” in her future spouse( referring to Cait by her given name Bruce) — admitting “its been” pure dollar signs enjoy at first sight!
Speaking on how “shes gone” about revitalizing Cait’s career, Kris explained 😛 TAGEND
“When I met and married Bruce Jenner, I became his administrator instantaneously because he didn’t have a lot going on. I saw this incredible potential, and he wasn’t doing anything. Nobody was booking him for speeches. Nobody was mailing him out on the road. I thought, Wow. You should be this incredible public speaker. I merely figured it out to that point.”
The mother-of-six admitted there wasn’t a lot of income coming in those periods, as she had just gone through a divorce with Robert Kardashian, Sr.
With four growing kids to feed, Kris needed “to get it together” — especially since Cait didn’t have much to offer at the time, a mere ” $200 in the bank”!
So, the momager got to work and, with the help of her small team, attained 7,000 press kits and mailed them to “to every speakers’ bureau in the United States.” That’s when things started turn back. Kris continued:
“Little by little, we started booking these speeches for Visa; Coca-Cola started booking him. I recollect sitting with Doug Ivester, the head of Coca-Cola, at the Olympics and thinking, ‘Wow, we’ve really come a long way.'”
And the rest is KarJenner history!
Looking back, the 61 -year-old realizes her relationship with Caitlyn “didn’t look so good on paper, ” but professes she was “1 50 percent” in love with her then-spouse. Of course , nothing amber can stay — as we know they separate in 2014.
While her spousal desire are likely to have run out, Kris’ love for their own children didn’t. The matriarch gushed over Kim Kardashian West inheriting her abilities to spin a negative into a positive( a.k.a. become a sex tape into media superstardom ), adding 😛 TAGEND
“I didn’t know that much about social media and the emergence of all of that. She espoused it and sort of managed it like no other. She really knew how to talk to her devotees, which was so interesting to me.”
Her “interesting” daughters might just is exactly why Kris considers her biggest attainment motherhood. She uncovered 😛 TAGEND
“I enjoyed every second of has become a momma. To watch my babes have babies has been the most joyful thing in the whole world. The most satisfying route to live life is watching your kids be successful at whatever that means for them. Success isn’t ever about fund. It’s about them finding out what they want to do in life and what their fervour is and what stimulates them happy.”
