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!

Not narrated by author
Mixed feelings but mostly good
Not at the top, but in the top levels
I appreciated getting an insiders look at the OJ - Nicole tragedy. And I was happy to know that even someone as close to them as the Kardashian's could see through all the BS and see the true psychopath OJ is.
I like Kris' voice in the intro. I wish she would have narrated the whole book. With all due respect for Ms. Strassman, I don't think her voice fit well with Kris' words. I was distracted by her raspier voice with Kris' face in my mind. Seemed like a mismatch.
Robert Kardashian's letter to her after the OJ trial. This book made me really admire Robert Kardashian. What an amazing man he was. And also, learning about Bruce Jenner. He sounds like a great guy too. I don't watch their show, so I enjoyed learning about them through Kris' perspective.Also, her talking about the loss of her Dads and Robert. That stirred up my personal experiences of my own losses. So those parts had me in tears.
I enjoyed the book, but I cringed every time Kris talks about a vehicle. "I drove up in my Range Rover"."I rented a Mercedes Bus." "We got in the BMW Limo." We get it Kris - you have money. My friends and I either do, or have driven high end cars also, but none of us refer to them by the brand. That's so annoying and pompous.
On another topic, with so many personal things she reveals in the book about herself and her family and also friends, I'm surprised there was no mention of Kim's sextape - unless I missed that. Urban Legend is that is what got the Kardashian's on the map and their show and began their fame. As a Mom myself, I wouldn't want to discuss things like that about my daughters either, but with all that WAS revealed in the book, it surprised me that was not.
Bottom line is, Kris has had some awesome opportunities which she very wisely acted on and ultimately became the person she is today. Yeah - a little hiccup with Ryan, but so what. She is a brilliant business woman with six gorgeous children and a great family. She's lucky and she's blessed.
