Kris Jenner executive produces and stars as matriarch on the hit reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!, now in its fifth smash season. Here, this ambitious businesswoman who has catapulted her family into the public consciousness reveals what it’s like living under the celebrity spotlight and touches on themes of love, loss, marriage, divorce, and motherhood.
Now the mother of six children - Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Robert Jr., Kendall, and Kylie (and the grandmother of Mason) - opens up about her first marriage to Robert Kardashian (widely known as one of O.J. Simpson’s defense attorneys); her current marriage to Olympic decathlon Bruce Jenner; her often controversial parenting style; O.J. Simpson (she was Nicole Simpson’s best friend); her work in television (she is currently the executive producer of all four hit Kardashian shows - Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe & Lamar); and more. A media and marketing powerhouse, Kris and her family collectively earned more in 2010 than Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, and Tom Cruise combined. This inside look will appeal to more than just other multitasking moms, but also anyone interested in what it’s like to be the head of such a famous family!

The narrator sounds just like Kris.
Kris has amazing stories to share here. If you are a Kardashian fan you will not be disappointed!
I really enjoyed this book ... Surprisingly. The story starts off a little slow, but picks up and really gives some great insight into Kris's life experiences. If you're looking for juicy info regarding the Kardashians this might not be the book for you. This mainly focuses on Kris and important life lessons she has.
The main issue I had while reading is some of the wording was very repetitive.
I thought this was a fantastic read (listen). Kris gives a very real look into her life beginning as a child, to her meeting and marriage to Robert Kardashian, the birth of their children, her affair, the murder and trial of her best friend, and finally meeting Bruce Jenner and her way to fame and fortune. This was a very honest bio, better than most others I have read. The only downside, it would have been better if Kris narrated the entire book herself. Overall, I recommend.
You may think you know everything from watching Keeping up with the Kardashians but, this book goes deep into Kris's life. I loved every moment of it.
My reason for purchasing this book was to learn more about a woman who created a business empire from nothing. That takes brains, talent and tenacity ... and some connections.
Kris -- I was curious to hear what she had to say and her description on the evolution of her life.
this book will change your way to look at kriss and his family. u will get to know how hardworking and dedicated she is.
i love the part specially when she talk about o j simption case and the murder it freaks me out that was the on of the best chapters of the book. but every chapter is so good and interesting u wouls not stop listening to it.<3
they both sound same
no but i listen this book in three day every evening
I love the whole kardashian phenomena so this was a winner. I loved hearing about Kris's early years and the OJ Simpson case was intriguing!
Kris, her honesty is amazing!!
The Kardashians are those people that you just want to go away...but yet in still you can't get enough of them! They are everywhere. In stores, on tv, and now...in print and audio. I wondered if reading Kris Jenner's biography/memoir (whatever you can call it) I would get the impression that she would be humble and down-to-earth about her riches and lifestyle - but she wasn't. They have always lived a life of complete wealth and excess and they aren't ashamed about it. Yet, the best part for me was hearing her talk about the OJ trial. Other than that, it was just chapter after chapter of excess - that I couldn't stop listening to.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
I must admit as much as I like watching her daughters on TV, Kris Jenner completely annoys me and overall, I felt like she comes off as being greedy and money hungry to the point, where she puts everything else over her family. However, this book proved me wrong. It was very interesting. She is actually very family oriented and that's what drives her. With that said, the topics on her dad's death and her ex-husband's passing were very touching and hearing about her relationship with OJ and Nicole during that whole ordeal kept me on the edge of my seat. Also enjoyed the narrator who sounded eerily like Kris Jenner herself. This was definitely a very good listen and I'm glad I decided to listen to it after all.
I enjoyed this audiobook! It's worth a listen if you're interested in more behind-the-scenes "dirt" on the Kardashian family. We're also introduced to Kris's childhood. Marcia Strassman does a great job narrating.
