Kris Jenner‘s talk show was sinking faster than the Titanic, so she had to pull out all the steps to try and save it. Enter Kanye West, who apparently turned down $4 million for the first pictures of his daughter with Kim Kardashian, North West, to debut them… on Kris. I can only imagine how much convincing that took, but whatever the case, she owes him BIG TIME, since that episode pretty much single-handedly saved her show from cancellation.
Kris Jenner and Twentieth Television scored a big season finale ratings bump Friday when Kanye West made an appearance on Kris and debuted a photo of North West, his baby with Jenner’s daughter Kim Kardashian. The highly anticipated West interview episode notched a series-high 1.7 household rating and did particularly in LA and Dallas markets where it was #1 in its time period. But for the syndicated talk show’s entire six-week run on selected Fox stations, Kris didn’t make a splash and came out just about even (0.8 in HH metered markets) with last year’s time period and with its lead-in. On YouTube the show’s channel hit a high of 4.3M views in its final week, comprising over half of its 8.1M views to date.
Well, that’s nice. Too bad it was a one-time thing, because God knows what she’s going to try and pull out of the hat now to keep this shit show on air. Oh, and in case you forgot, here’s how cute North West is:

There she is in all her glory – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s daughter North. Isn’t she… really fucking adorable? Kanye revealed the pic on Kris Jenner‘s talkshow this morning and obviously the Internet has gone batshit insane over it. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to put this up, either. She’s cute! She looks like both of them, actually (but mostly Kim, I think). Aww, squishy baby.

You may or may not be aware of the phenomenon of “code switching” – or changing your manner of speaking (accent, pronunciation, etc) and your mannerisms depending on the people you’re with. This often happens automatically, without the person even thinking about it, and that’s certainly what happened with Kanye West on Kris Jenner‘s talk show (which is airing today, if you’re near TV and want to melt your brain). LOLZ abound.
Kanye chatted to Kris and her audience in a hilarious voice that’s definitely not his own about just how in love he is with Kim Kardashian (still don’t buy it – no one that in love looks that miserable) and his daughter, North, and how he even though he hates paparazzi and the press, he’s with someone whose life revolves around them because she’s his “joy”. Spare me, man. But also, that voice! He sounds like a turtle, and it’s a shame white people need him to talk like that to take him seriously. Newsflash, world: correct and precise enunciation is not a marker of intelligence, nor is accent, the use of colloquialisms, etc. Someday we’ll all get this through our thick skulls.
But that’s neither here nor there. This whole interview is so set-up and full of bullshit that I can smell it from here. What was the point of this scripted nonsense, and what new deal with the devil did Kris have to make in order to even get Kanye to agree to this? What else will he come up with? WHERE’S THE PICTURE OF NORTH?

There have been rumours floating around since Kim Kardashian gave birth to daughter North that she might be ready to hang up her reality TV hat and was planning to quit Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This was great news to all but the Kardashian family, because we all know that if Kim left the show, it would end up getting canceled. Sure, the rest of them are nice supporting characters, but is anyone watching for anything other that Kim’s baby-voiced scenes? I don’t think so.
Well, it looks like we all got excited too soon, because Momager Kris has set the record straight and insisted that Kim isn’t leaving the series, and in fact, production on season nine is going to be starting soon!
Jenner cleared up rumors that Kim is leaving the popular reality show. “Kim is definitely doing ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’” and said the rumors that Scott Disick was exiting are also false.
The matriarch also set the record straight about her relationship with Kim’s fiancée, Kanye West, who is set to appear on Jenner’s daytime TV show “Kris” on Friday. Jenner said, “We live together. He’s my roommate, and he is so clean. He is such a great member of my family.”
Kris did confirm that Kim and Kanye have no interest in selling photos of their baby girl, North. The grandma replied, “They just want to be nesting right now. They’re not thinking about business.” Kris does hint that pics of North may premiere on her show.
As for how new mom Kim is doing, Kris beamed, “She feels so good. She feels healthy, has energy, and she’s looking good. She’s eating right. It’s like she’s on maternity leave, just enjoying the baby.”
LOL, what? That’s a great description of Kanye. Of all the things in the world to say, Kris chooses to point out that he’s “so clean”. Well, I guess that’s a relief. I’m just really, really sorry this show is still on the air.

Kris Jenner‘s talk show is tanking. That’s not an actual fact as I’m not sure what the real ratings are, but it must be tanking. Who the hell is watching it? I mean, aside from the whole baby stunt, there is literally zero reason to tune in… until now! Word on the street is that Yeezy himself has filmed an interview for the show which will air during its finale (a finale already?).
From US Weekly:
Kris Jenner’s talk show will be ending its trial run with a VIP guest! A source confirms to Us Weekly that Kanye West has taped an appearance on Kris, where he talked about his relationship with Jenner’s daughter Kim Kardashian and their 2-month-old baby girl, North.
West, 36, taped his special interview with Jenner, 57, in Culver City, Calif. on Monday, Aug. 19. The insider tells Us the rapper is “really bringing it” for the interview and opens up about the baby, living with Kris Jenner, his relationship with the press and love for Kardashian.
West even joked that he’s been “so in love” with Kim, whom he began dating in April 2012, that he thought about “playing sports.”
A second source tells Us that West’s exclusive interview will air Friday, Aug. 23, which is the finale episode of Jenner’s six-week trial summer run.
Wow, it sounds like a hoot – Kanye cracking jokes? Details on North (WHO REALLY CARES?)? Kris Jenner’s obnoxious face? COUNT ME IN (OUT).

… Which most likely means that they are. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom got married back in 2009 after dating for about a month, so it’s no surprise that thinks aren’t so honky dory four years on. Especially since Lamar has apparently been cheating on Khloe for years, and with several women, at that. He even got in a fight with a paparazzo who dared to question him about sticking it in other ladies.
In any case, all of this has led to rumours that Khlomar will soon be no more, prompting Momager Kris to hop to the rescue and insist that’s not happening, even though it probably definitely is.
From E! News:
“Khloé and Lamar are absolutely not getting divorced,” Kris Jenner told E! News. “There’s been no talk of divorce.”
Who knows, maybe Lamar hasn’t cheated. I mean, he definitely has, but let’s all live in a fantasy world like Khloe was when she posted this on her blog earlier this year:
It is a complete waste of time to address these reports every time they print these ridiculous and absurd tabloid stories, but not only are these stories untrue, they’re also unfair to the people who buy the magazines expecting to read accurate reports. Anyone who pays attention to these things can easily see the incredible bond that everyone in my family shares. I’m happily married to a wonderful man and fall in love with him more and more each day, and we’ll have a baby when god wants us to and when the time is right. These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless.
Oh, girl. Such a shame.
