The Kardashian clan appears on the cover of Redbook magazine’s May 2011 issue. Inside, Kris Jenner, mother to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian defends her daughters’ much-talked about work ethic and talents.
On the biggest misconceptions about the Kardashians
KRIS: It’s annoying when I hear, “What do your girls do?” Well, first of all, all of my daughters have jobs. They are fashion stylists and designers; they own a chain of stores. They had the stores before they had the show.
And my kids worked from the time they were 13 years old. So to me, that’s a huge misconception — that the girls don’t work. They work 25 hours a day.
And that they don’t have any talent? They might not be singers or dancers, but they certainly know how to produce a television show. Whether you want to call it talent or not, they have multiple shows on the air. How many shows do you have?”
And of the shows, KHLOE had this to say: “We are a real family. We don’t sugarcoat anything. We’re not the Brady Bunch, but we always put each other first. We love each other on camera, we cry on camera. I think people relate to the realness of it.”
